Matt B.

Gordon Family YMCA

During a doctor’s appointment, Matt was blown away to see that he weighed 290 pounds. Having lost a family member due to poor health, he knew it was time to change his habits and be a better example for his family, so he joined the Y.

“I felt like I was living on borrowed time,” said Matt. “I knew I had the chance to make a change.”

It wasn’t long before Matt was a regular, trying classes like TRX® and cycling, and connecting with family and friends. He began to be more conscious of what he was eating and drinking, working to find the balance in a holistic, healthy lifestyle. Through hard work and improving his habits, Matt lost a staggering 132 pounds.

“I have everything to thank for this place,” said Matt. “I don’t think I would’ve pulled it off if I hadn’t started coming here.”
