About Tonya Beaty

Hi! My name is Tonya Beaty. I have struggled with controlling my weight for most of my life. I would try the latest diet craze or exercise plan and consistently get mixed results. Oftentimes I’d lose some weight, only to find it very easy to gain right back, sometimes even gaining more weight than what I started with. When I was a teenager, I was 80 pounds overweight and stopped weighing myself. I also discovered I was an emotional eater that used food to satisfy my emotional needs instead of satisfying my physical hunger. I developed two eating disorders and found myself depressed and anxious. There were so many times I would hide in the back row during family photographs or have one of the kids stand in front of me because I wanted to hide the way I looked.

When I was younger, I tried to join traditional gyms multiple times but found them to be overwhelming and intimidating. I didn’t know how to use the equipment, and asking for help crushed my confidence. I wore baggy clothes to disguise my body. I felt as though the people at the gym were judging me. After my children were born I became depressed and unhappy with my weight. My health took a nosedive as I was diagnosed with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and migraines.

My husband Greg also struggled with his weight. Even though he was always very busy, he gained about 45 pounds during my first pregnancy, claiming, “It’s baby weight.” His job required him to work long hours, so he usually ate his meals on the go, which led him to make one poor dietary decision after another. After a few years of neglecting his body, he was diagnosed with diabetes due to his weight and sedentary lifestyle.

We discovered the local Fit Body Boot Camp and it changed the way we thought about diet and exercise. We absolutely fell in love with working out; the workouts were convenient for our work schedules and only 30 minutes long. We also learned how to nourish our bodies for optimal performance. Now fitness is just part of our lifestyle. Greg participated in a Spartan Race as a present to himself on his fiftieth birthday, and I ran a similar obstacle course race later that same year. The confidence I gained from working out at FBBC fueled my competitiveness as I began training for national bodybuilding shows in the figure category. Fit Body Boot Camp provided us with a fun, supportive, and safe environment to enjoy working out, and now we both feel and look great. As a side note, we were both able to stop taking medications, with our doctor’s blessings.
