With my roles as a husband, a physician in a medical practice and a father of
two very young children, it's easy to say I'm too busy to exercise. But I started
to put on weight, had some back issues and knew I needed to do something consistently.
I started here (9Round Ballantyne) about 18 months ago and have never wanted to quit.
(Owners) Mark and Suzy made this experience transforming for me. The environment here
is small and family friendly, and the workouts change daily. Three to five days a week I
work out at 5 a.m. and often see the same people. My long-standing back issues have
been reduced significantly since I've been working out. I've always eaten pretty healthy, but
I've gotten better about portion control and eating more protein, which vegetarians don't
always get enough of. I've lost 15 pounds since April, but more importantly,
I have increased energy and actually look forward to working out again.
