Janna's Texas Fit Chicks Success Story!


I've been with Texas Fit Chicks McKinney for almost a year. I'm 38 years old and married with 3 children (Zane 4, Madeline 11, Brendan 14). I have a very sedentary job as an Insurance Underwriter. My weight has fluctuated all my life. I had terrible eating habits in my 20's and early 30's and chocolate is my addiction!!!

My journey started with Texas Fit Chicks a year ago, after I was diagnosed with Vestibular Neuritis (a virus which attacks your inner ear). This has unfortunately left me with chronic vertigo and disequilbrium. I was told by many doctors that an active lifestyle was the only thing that would help my brain compensate for the vestibular loss, so I became an avid runner. I love running and still do it on a weeky basis but I wasn't getting the results I desired.

My girlfriend (Amanda Byford) told me she attended Texas Fit Chikcs Bootcamp McKinney with Leighanne and she loved it. She asked me to come try it out so I did (after a lot of convincing). I'm not going to lie....I threw up my first day of bootcamp. My favorite exercises are finish before the minute and man-makers. My least favorite are burpees and frog hops.

Here I am a year later and 95% recovered from my vestibular disorder. Along this journey I have gained strength, confidence, stamina, endurance and best of ALL....numerous lifelong friends and a love for fitness! I love my trainer Leighanne. She pushes me to be my best and holds me accountable. I still have a way to go to meet my fitness goal but I have a feeling 2014 is going to be my year! I recommend Texas Fit Chicks to anyone looking to be healthy, happy and fit. Remember.....Strong is the new Skinny!!!
