Congratulations to Rachel Dodaro on her acceptance to West Point Military Academy! Upon applying, Rachel found out she'd undergo a strength and endurance test. Here's her story:
"At the time, I (could not) do pull-ups and very few push-ups. I immediately decided to come to Nex Level Fitness and train with Michelle because she had previously helped me to strengthen my upper body enough to do push-ups correctly. I knew that she would be the one to push me to be my best and train me to pass my tests, but from my very first workout at Nex Level, I got way more than I was expecting. Everyone- every trainer and everybody working out- has been so supportive, kind, and fun to be around, which helped me to keep going and stay positive throughout my training. Every time I worked out- whether in a class or a private training session, I have been pushed by each trainer to go outside my comfort zone, and I have been motivated by everyone else to go even farther. Thanks to my hard work, Michelle's training, and everyone's support, I- a girl who could not even lift myself a tiny bit on a pull-up bar just 10 months ago- have passed my CFA with above average scores and even impressed the test administrators with my five pull-ups. Thanks to Michelle and everyone at Nex Level Fitness for helping me perform above and beyond anything I imagined I was capable of. I look forward to many more fun and challenging workouts!"
