In 2010 I moved back to the United States after 2 years of living in Australia. Living abroad you do one thing a whole lot more than you tend to do in Miami; you walk everywhere. Even with all the walking I was doing in my day to day, I was in the worst health of my life. I worked 12-14 hour days leaving my desk for coffee or a quick run to the nearest fast food restaurant. On my way home at 9, sometimes 10 pm, I'd look for a different fast food restaurant and pick something up for dinner. It was a vicious cycle of overworking myself and starving my body of any type of nutrients.
In 2011, I heard about Synergize from a friend who asked me to accompany her and try a free class. I signed up that same day. It wasn't from the amazing workout. I actually couldn't keep up or finish most exercises, but instead it was because of who the trainers and staff were. Day one it was obvious they cared. They cared A LOT. It didn't seem like the number one priority was making the sale, like in most other places. They cared about me. They cared about ME caring about myself!
Fast forward 3 years. I was in a new career, having shed the going-nowhere-route I had been on since moving back. I had a new group of friends; having shed those who did not serve my new focus and lifestyle. I had an amazing extended family. They became my confidants, my advisers, my support group, my family. I had not only shed negative energies, but also 65 pounds!! I embraced this circle... until I became part of the circle.
After being so motivated by my trainers, I started contemplating whether I could be a trainer myself. I was put to the test shortly after. I was so incredibly lucky to have Zach take me under his wing, always eager to impart his knowledge, always available to explain, demonstrate and test me. Always pushing me to be the best version of myself! Not only was I his student, but his client. As I learned more and more about my own strength, capabilities and power, I learned how to best motivate others and allow them to experience the amazing capabilities they themselves had. It showed me a part of myself I never knew existed.
Being a part of the Synergize family as a trainer and client was amazing... but soon after, I also wanted to be a part of the Synergize Movement!! If this small company could make such a HUGE impact my life, I wanted to help them transform the world anyway I could! I wanted to support them in their mission of transforming 10,000 lives by all means necessary. One way I could be impactful was to use my expertise in organizational structures and systems implementation and so I became the Operations Manager.
It's been an amazing journey. One that truly transformed my life. I am thankful, I am blessed, I am transformed, I am Synergize.
