Any advice for new members: Stay committed, believe in just one more. One more rep, one more class, one more week. The results will come.
Any additional thoughts/shout-outs/comments: Thanks to all the i1uvit coaches and members for the advice and encouragement. You all make it easier to put in the work and sweat instead of sitting on the couch with my beloved ice cream and beer.
