Hi, my name is Cody. My husband and I joined the Lab over six years ago. It’s been a fun journey watching this gym grow and change and adjust– all while changing lives. During this time, I’ve had my ups and downs when it comes to fitness– but overall I consistently show up and enjoy my workouts.

When I first joined The Lab, I had a great experience working with Brett and doing one-on-one training and nutrition coaching. At the time, I felt physically strong but I still was unhappy with how my clothes fit. Brett challenged me to do a 3-month transformation and helped me get to where I wanted to be physically. I was stronger and healthier than ever and it made me feel confident and happy. Three months later I became pregnant with my second child. My pregnancy was hard. REALLY hard! I was constantly nauseous and became very depressed. Once my daughter was born, all was good in the world again and I bounced back emotionally. My body however, did not. I was tired, older, nursing a baby, running a small business, and chasing a 4 year old.

Since then, I’ve kept up with my workouts and primarily eat a whole food diet but my body just didn’t respond like it had before. My daughter is now 3 and I will turn 40 this summer. I know I’ve been doing a lot of the right things, but clearly doing a lot of the wrong things.

A few weeks ago, decided to reach out to Brett again. Even though he had shown me what I needed to do to get the results I wanted in the past, I knew it was going to take more than that for me this time. My goals are different now and so is my lifestyle.

After sitting down and talking with Brett at our first meeting, he helped me get clear on what my goals are and asked me some hard questions. He put together a customized nutrition and fitness plan for me and will continue to coach me as I work towards my goals.

I am excited to take on this next challenge (for myself) and get my body where I feel healthy and happy again. I want to share my journey with you for two reasons: 1.) IT HOLDS ME ACCOUNTABLE (and I need that) and 2.) I know I’m not the only one out here showing up, eating good food and still struggling. I want prove that being more mindful, setting goals, and making easy adjustments in the way I eat and exercise can make ALL the difference. I’m going to OWN IT!
