Bernette before and after

Age: 50  
Lost: 22 lbs.
Bernette has lost 22 pounds, dropped six dress sizes, and recently finished the LA marathon -- her first ever, at age 50. Here's her story of transformation.

In May 2011 I came across a fitness segment on The Studio (MDR) on the local news, and I was immediately drawn to what it was about. After my first beginner's class with Ky, I knew instantly that I would quickly see results. Since I started taking classes at The Studio (MDR), my confidence has definitely grown and I feel like I'm also serving as an example and a form of motivation to my family and friends wanting to lose weight and start a new healthy lifestyle as well

Last month, at the age of 50, I was able to run and finish my first ever marathon, right here in LA. My classes at The Studio (MDR) were a huge cross-training help. Daily running, along with the stamina and strength I've gained from the SPX classes, helped me finish successfully. It was such a rewarding experience that I would do it again. After 10 months of hard-work and much discipline, I was able to lose 22 lbs. and 6 dress sizes. I feel like a new person.
