She is a great advocate and inspiration for what it truly takes to make a lifestyle change.

I was working for Darin and was following the success stories they were sharing from Fitness Renegades and I got motivated. "Maybe they could help me too!", I thought to myself. I knew I was out of control and needed help to get back into shape and feeling healthy again. I hated the way I felt and the way I looked.I would stand in my closet and hate the way my clothes fit and how that made me feel, but I would tell myself it was my own fault, squeeze into the outfit and move on.I was ready to make the sacrifices to make it happen, but I knew it would never happen on my own. Walking the dog was not enough anymore.I had spent my whole life taking care of everyone else and it showed, I needed to focus on myself before it was too late.My biggest success is that I have taken control of my health.I have lost a serious amount of weight (100+lbs) and inches (40+inches). Along with those physical changes, I have found myself again.I have regained my confidence.Hear what Gwyn has to say about her transformation! I am truly stronger, physically and mentally. When you work your body, you are also working your mind and that stress release is amazing. I have proven to myself and my family that it is never too late to make a change and to regain control.You have to make your health a priority. You have to break old habits and create new ones. You have to understand how to fuel your body and the impact it makes on how you feel. I have redefined what it means to respect myself.The best part of Fitness Renegades for me is the support system that is in place.I know each day that I walk in there, I will get a great physical workout. It will challenge me, make me stronger and bring me closer to achieving my goals. Everyone that is there is working on themselves in some form or fashion. The support and the honesty keep me going.My story may help someone and their stories help me in return.We share what works and what makes us struggle. There is comfort in that."We’re so proud of Gwyn! Her dedication and strong-willed personality truly inspire so many!
