Hey, hey!

 

 

Many of you already know me, but for those who don't let me introduce myself.  My name is Kyla Ellinthorpe and I am a 32 year old momma of 2 beautiful kiddos and a loving "wife" to my hubby of 13 years!  I have been a part of Apocalypse for days or 3 years and 5 months or 1,264 days to be exact .  I was about 7 weeks postpartum after having my little guy Chase and feeling pretty down on myself.  Wearing a size 18 pant size and a xl top.  I was on Facebook one day and noticed a momma on my mom chat offering up a month's bootcamp at a gym in Aldergrove for just $25.00.  I was beyond excited because I NEVER even knew this place existed in the whole 4 years I had been a part of the community.  I went and picked up my wickid offer and started on April 1, 2015.  I remember walking into the gym at 6am..... nervous, scared and thinking "what the hell did I get myself into"  I remember my first class like it was going to be my last.  It was a partner workout.  John paired me with this women, one who appeared to be at least 65+ and I thought for sure I could totally kick butt.... Until we began.  We did sit-ups with high 5's I nearly died (but didn't) this lady stayed on MY pace.  She supported me and high fived me when it was right for me.  We did wall balls, and again this lady stayed on MY pace the entire process!  The workout was done.  I survived and I couldn't wait to come back and do it again.... Until I woke up the next morning.  I couldn't walk down the stairs, I couldn't sit down on the toilet to pee, I could barely bend my legs to get into the car and I wouldn't dare to get down on the ground to play with my kids because I didn't think I could get back up!!!  It was brutal but the next class was fast approaching and come hell or high water I was getting my $25.00 worth!!!!  The next week approached and I showed up.  I gave it my all and slowly my peers noticed that MAYBE I was going to stick around.  I have to be honest.... I went home every morning after bootcamp almost in tears, not only because I just got my ass handed to me but because I wanted to prove to myself and others (ahem John) that I was going to stick around for longer than anybody could even imagine!!!!!!  My first month ended.... I gave Cindy my info to do another 3 months to continue on my journey.  In my mind I would go to classes for the next 3 months then branch off and "do my own thing" little did I know in those few months of being at Apocalypse I would be inspired by a group of people who supported me, people who cheered me on at my lowest and praised me for doing things I never ever thought I could do.  In September 2015 some of the girls competed in femsport .... Watching them train and inspire eachother made me want to join in on the fun so I made it my goal to get to the event the following year!  I stuck around.  I failed and succeeded I cried and wanted to quit.  Some days I felt like I didn't belong but I remembered where I started and had a goal to reach!  I worked on eating better and getting more water into my body and sure enough in May 2016 I started training for the competition.  September 2016 we rolled in deep with a group of girls who were ready to take on the day!  Some of them went home with hardware but I went home with a sense of accomplishment.  I did it!  I FU(KING did it!  I placed 13th overall in my division and was beyond thrilled with myself that I did something I never thought I could do!  In October 2016 I asked John if I could train with him one on one once a week to get stronger!  I wanted so badly to learn how to do double unders and see what I had in me to gain some more muscle!  He started slow with me.  We built a relationship that I can't even explain!  I learned to trust him with allot.  He allows me to be open and honest and he is the same with me.  This guy, who in the beginning gave me the feeling that I wasn't going to stick around pushed me to my limits, saw me cry a few times and has made me call him many horrible names (in my head and out loud)..... He's like my brother.... I literally trust him with my life!  John has encouraged me to be my best and to never quit.  He has taught me to slow down and listen to my body when I am tired or injured.... He is one of the best in the industry and I couldn't imagine my world without him in it!  I never would have thought I would be where I am today.  September 2017 I competed in my second year at femsport and guess what!  My team took home a gold medal.... What a rush that was!    I think I have my eating down (most days) I train to become a better version of myself and I love the tribe vibe we have at Apocalypse!  Fast forward to NOW!  I am wearing a size 10/12 pant and feel fabulous!  YOU GUYS that's a solid 6 dress sizes I am down since starting my journey 3 years and 5 months ago!!!!  Apocalypse has given me more than wickid bootcamp classes, awesome trainers and great food advice..... They have given me friendships that will last a lifetime, endless laughter and a group of people who have your back no matter who you are.  If I have any advice for anybody reading this it would be to never EVER give up on yourself.  Train because YOU want to be at the gym.  Love yourself no matter what and always believe in yourself!
