I found True40 while repairing my relationship with food and exercise. I can’t sing their praises enough, because I finally found a home that promotes honoring my body and doing what feels best for me today. Instead of fostering a sense of competition, it’s a place filled with encouragement and joy.
Something that has drawn me to this workout is the way each instructor expresses a specific modifications for every exercise. True40 is a workout that takes the shame out of having to tweak a move to suit whatever issues a client may have going on. The instructors have been incredibly accessible, knowledgeable, and down to earth.
True40 has changed the way I look and feel in my mind, body, and soul. It has taught me that I can push myself some days, but on other days it’s ok to listen to my body and take it easy and still get a great workout. True40 is what I 100% give credit to helping me feel great during my whole pregnancy!
Since I started, this True40 experience has made me look forward to waking up, which hasn’t been a thing for me in a long time. I’m trying to do whatever I can to improve my mind, body, and soul, which doesn’t come cheaply these days. I like the feeling of being a part of something like True40. I’m learning to love myself more every day, and True40 is like a huge wave bringing me to the shore of peace. I’ve felt so welcome and it makes my heart shine to know that people who are doing the things they’re passionate about, want others to experience that same passion.
Thinking True40 would be like any other barre class, I began stressing about the cellulite shown through the back of my leggings and my ability to not make ugly faces as my legs trembled. After my first class, that was gone. The instructors are there to encourage you and find limits that challenge YOU – while never making you feel less about yourself if you have to take a modification. They really make the class about honoring your body as God’s holy temple – which is so relieving in a world so focused on image! The classes leave you drenched in sweat.. I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to go honestly!
I’m so glad I found True40-Ivy Walk!
I enjoy the classes at True40. The studio has become the highlight of my week as I strive to stay as fit as possible. All the class leaders motivate me to do my best as I try to reach my fitness goals. I have gained flexibility, muscle tone and balance in classes designed to encourage and instruct. I look forward to my time with enthusiastic instructors and fun classmates.
Community to me means a safe place… a safe place to be yourself without judgement, a safe place to raise my girls, a safe place to always have someone to lean on. Aside from the fact that True40 is a great low-impact workout, the entire staff always has a smile and is so super sweet!
True40 has always felt like such a welcoming and positive place. I feel like exercise studios of all kinds can often feel like an exclusive club, and I’m thankful to have found a place that doesn’t feel like that!
