My name is Kimberly Reyes. My home studio is Parkland, Florida.
I first found out about Orangetheory Fitness through my mom. She had been coming to classes for about a year. So I decided to try a class with her. That was happening for about a month, and unfortunately, my mom had an unknown medical condition happen and couldn’t go any more. So I wasn’t stopping because I loved it and she said, even though we can’t workout anymore, I want you to go and do it for me. So I’ve been taking Orangetheory classes for over a year now. And I love it.
I’ve lost about 15 lbs. But more importantly, I’ve also lost inches. I’ve gone from a size 8 to in between a 0 and size 2. I feel so much better. My mood has changed. I‘m so happy. I feel excited to come to the gym. I just really feel great, honestly.
Since I’ve been with Orangetheory, I’ve ran five half marathons. Which is new for me. I’ve never run half marathons before. So my goal within the next year is to actually finish a full marathon. And Orangetheory is helping me every single day with the endurance.
So, if there’s someone out there that’s looking at me thinking I can’t do that – I was like that in the beginning. I could run on the treadmill, but I was not fast at all. I’ve come so far. Everybody has. I watch everybody in the studio. We’re all really close. You’re gonna feel close with people. They’re going to motivate you. And you’re going to start motivating them. And you’re going to see that you’re going to find results.
Orangetheory has built my confidence level. I’ve gone from walking in to Orangetheory and looking at everyone and thinking I’ll never be able to do that. Now I feel like I’m the motivator. I actually have a lot of people call me and say, “Kim, will you come to Orangetheory with me?” “Will you run with me on the treadmill?” So I feel like I’m motivating more people now. It’s definitely increased my confidence. And I feel great about it.
I burn for my mom. Who got me started in Orangetheory. So I burn for her. And I feel really good about it.
