Before I made the decision to join Tiger Schulmann’s Midwood branch, I was just another one of those people with a gym membership that used it for months at a time, lying to themselves that the few days they’re going are enough to get in shape.

Before I made the decision to join Tiger Schulmann’s Midwood branch, I was just another one of those people with a gym membership that used it for months at a time, lying to themselves that the few days they’re going are enough to get in shape. Yea, it worked for a bit and I even dropped in weight but it got boring and repetitive and I lost my motivation. Every day was a different excuse as to why I wasn’t going to go workout, I used them all from “I’m just too tired” to “my friend isn’t going today so I won’t either” then my brother (who had already trained in Tiger Schulmann’s) came to me and told me that they opened up a new school and he was going to start training again and that I should really consider it. So I went with him to his first class back and honestly at first I was extremely intimidated and didn’t take part in the class, I did however observe the class and the teaching methods of Sensei Nolan and his attentiveness toward each student, not neglecting anyone and motivating the entire class to “give it their all” this was enough for me to make my decision to sign up for a trial class.

 

I did however observe the class and the teaching methods of Sensei Nolan and his attentiveness toward each student, not neglecting anyone and motivating the entire class to “give it their all” this was enough for me to make my decision to sign up for a trial class.

I walked into Tiger Schulmann’s Midwood again December 14, 2012 for my trial class weighing 198lbs, nervous yet again but once the class started that feeling was replaced with one of pure excitement and hunger to learn which was enough to ensure that I was making the right choice in joining and training under Sensei Nolan. When I officially started, I was only training 3 days a week which quickly went to 4 and now I’m training 5 days a week. I have become completely obsessed with learning as much as I can about every aspect of training I can and with the encouraging and motivating attitude of Sensei Nolan and everyone else I train with. I am 31lbs lighter than I was when I first started, I’m more focused and confident in my own abilities and I’m a much happier person.

I would encourage anyone feeling lost and unmotivated like I was to give Tiger Schulmann’s a shot and see that anything is possible when you have the right motivation.

With all that being said, I am extremely thankful and happy with my decision to join and I look forward to the many years of training I have ahead. I would encourage anyone feeling lost and unmotivated like I was to give Tiger Schulmann’s a shot and see that anything is possible when you have the right motivation.
