I joined the P.R.O Down 2 Challenge 3.0 this time because it was so important for me to try this challenge for myself. The first Challenge was for my children Stephanie and Giovanni. The Second Challenge was for my son Lorenzo. This third Challenge was for me. Most importantly, I learned that doing something for others is and feels more rewarding to me than trying to do something for myself. Also, that all these challenges were hard, it didn’t get easier.
This challenge changed me physically, emotionally, and mentally. I am extremely grateful for this experience. I was able to fit into some very nice holiday outfits too! I really enjoyed these Challenges, but I don’t think I would do another one anytime soon. Yes, I would totally recommend it to a friend.

What I love about P.R.O. Fitness and Sports Academy are the flexible schedules, the classes, the workouts, the beach workouts, the pool workouts, having access to the running track, and The Recovery Room!

P.R.O has done a lot for me since joining the De La Salle community. Taking their early morning workout classes was essential to my day for the majority of last. Derreck and Jimmy also spent time with my players once a week giving them a great workout before practice. This seems to also be the case for several other sports teams.
P.R.O can definitely continue to be an integral part of the De La Salle community as the activity center construction is finalized. They have a lot to offer the school, staff, and students.

I joined the Down 2 Challenge to really get back in shape, and to feel better about myself! I learned that losing weight and getting in shape takes a lot of time and dedication. I also learned a lot of new workouts! The Down 2 Challenge changed me by making me more knowledgeable to new workouts! It also changed me by making me better at time management. being a college student can be very hard and time consuming so sometimes I felt as if I was too tired or didn’t have enough time in my day to work out, but with this program I was given the option to workout at 6am so I
made myself accustomed to waking up at 5am to work out when needed and it really made me feel good. Never would I have thought I would wake up that early to train, but I did and it really gave me more energy throughout the day and a reason to have no excuses not to train.
I would definitely do another challenge and would recommend the Down 2 Challenge to a friend! I love how intense the training is. It makes me really proud to go in there and get everything done no matter how hard the training might be. At the end of each training I feel great knowing that I powered through that session! Derreck is amazing as well! He really pushes you every day to be better! He is also very informative with how the workouts need to be completed and is always making sure you’re doing everything right to prevent injuries. I also love the one on one he gives each client despite how many people might be in the class that day.

I joined the P.R.O. Down 2 Challenge because I heard about it from my Mom. I thought it would be a very beneficial program because of the way my Mom was describing it. I learned that consistency is what makes a change and the will to push yourself is all that is going to help you. Some of the ways this challenge changed me, are that I can physically see abs that I’ve never seen before and mentally I am more cautious of not only my diet but how active I decide to be. Yes, I would do another challenge and Yes, I would recommend the Pro Down 2 Challenge to a friend. What I Love about P.R.O. Fitness and Sports Academy are the various workouts that I was introduced to, and all of the equipment that was provided for the workouts 🙂

I just finished my second P.R.O. Down 2 Challenge! I joined the challenge again just for that reason… to challenge myself. I have learned to put myself and my health first and this challenge holds me accountable to show up every day and give it all I have! Working hard has its benefits, as I just feel better every day. My weight is down, my cravings are under control, my strength has increased, I am more flexible than before, I sleep better and therefore am not tired during the day.
Working either in a group or being the only one in class does not change the motivation and guidance that the P.R.O. Team hands out. Their expertise in body movement and dynamics provides methe opportunity to achieve my best outcome. I encourage anyone interested in taking a healthy step forward to join the P.R.O. Fitness family
today. Can’t wait for the next challenge!
