My name is Sabrina, I’m 25 years old and I never dreamed or imaging I could ever become the person i am today physically!! I made a decision to better my health and to feel good about myself. At 210 plus pounds with high cholesterol and a 38% body fat it never occurred to me that it was unhealthy to be that heavy. My journey begin in December 2010 and I’ve never looked back. I made a lifestyle change to working out, eating right and being healthy. It is not about dieting, it’s about eating healthy and taking in the proper amount of calories that the body needs to function. I’ve learned so much throughout this journey it is yet still the beginning for me. I’ve challenged myself to get on stage and compete as a Bodybuilder. I did two shows and am proud to say I came in 2nd and 1st!! For a person who never thought she could of ever accomplished these goals, that’s pretty impressive. One thing I’ve learned is that the mind is a powerful tool, therefore if you feed it positive things it will function properly!! Once you start thinking negative and doubting yourself you’re basically setting yourself up for failure, and never limit yourself

Congratulations to Sabrina for placing first in both the female Body Building and Physique category on Oct. 26, 2013 at the Dayana Caduea Classic. Owners Dawn and Sarah were on hand to share in this major victory.

My name is Eric Birkhimer and I am a resident of Lake Worth.  I have been here for the last year and a half.  This past April I was just getting over the fact that I had turned thirty years of age and had gained about 25lbs in the previous 6 months.  My Physical health was declining rapidly and my energy levels were horrible.  Everyday felt like such a task just to wake up and go to work where I sit at a desk for 8 hours.  It was starting to affect my mental state in terms of mild depression and periods of self pity.  My girlfriend had already been going to a gym called the ZOO which was located only a mile from my house and encouraged me constantly to join.  After a month of debating I gave in and joined the ZOO and my process began.  The past ten years of my life has been this back and forth battle with either extremely in shape and determined to the other which is eating anything under the sun and being lazy.  The convenience of being able to go to the ZOO and workout in a clean environment, be around a great cast of workers and members, and be treated with the upmost respect & kindness has really helped me light a spark for fitness again.  Although I have never hired one of their personal trainers any question that I have ever had about something in my workout they have assisted me at the drop of a hat.  I have had plenty of opportunities to join other gyms in the area, but would not trade the treatment and guidance I am afforded at the ZOO.  Since joining I have lost 22lbs, gained more muscle definition, and pushed my self physically more than ever in my life.  This has happened only in 4 months and look forward to furthering my health and well being at the ZOO.  There really is something to say about being part of something that you know in your heart just feels right and that is exactly what I have been giving as a member of the ZOO. Thanks to everyone at the Zoo!
