A young professional, mother of two rambunctious boys, never extraordinarily active except for bowling, Tiffany found herself at the end of her rope. She had just lost her grandmother, she weighed more than she had ever weighed, and she wanted to control something in her life.
She saw an ad on Facebook, clicked on it, and joined the Fox Fitness Community. When Tiffany Borbolla took that crucial step, she had no idea what would happen. But she doesn’t do anything half-heartedly, so she jumped into the workouts and started paying attention to the advice given by head trainer, Becky Fox.
“When I first worked out, that first day, I thought I was going to die. I literally wondered if my heart was going to explode. But I took to liking it quickly”, Tiffany quickly added. “That workout kicked my butt, but the hardest part was actually signing up. I was nervous about meeting new people, getting out of my comfort zone, and committing myself to something when I didn’t really know what it was.”
“I’m not too good with commitment but it turned out that I really enjoyed it. I really didn’t know if I would or not. I had never been very active, except for bowling. I have been busy raising two boys and they kept me busy!”
Her elder son is 19 and he played football, so there was practice and games and all that goes along with being a parent of an active student-athlete.
“Well, he gave me a run for my money”, Tiffany laughed. They are both fantastic young men who have noticed a change in their mom.
“They have both said that they see a change in me. They say I used to be a lot more grouchy, for one.”
“In the first 6 months, I was dropping pant sizes and I was really dropping weight. But it wasn’t just about getting smaller, I was lifting heavier weights without dying, or feeling like it anyway. That first time I felt like my head was going to explode, now I was pushing myself to do more than I ever thought I could.”
Tiffany is one of the quiet ones. You can tell she doesn’t feel all that comfortable talking about her achievements, despite having made a lot of progress in a fairly short time.
Tiffany has lost over 50 pounds in just over one year. She lost an incredible 10% body fat, and has dropped over 22 total inches!
“When I found Fox Fitness I was ready for a change. The community has really helped me do that- we are all women with similar goals; the environment is positive, upbeat, and motivating. We have fun, it’s high energy. We come in and do what we’ve got to do but at the same time we are making connections with each other.”
“If there were anyone out there who was debating on whether to join I would tell that person ‘You definitely should’. I feel like a different person, I’ve got more energy, I feel better. Becky is friendly, motivating, and an awesome trainer. If I can do it you can.”
