Congratulations to our dear customer and 8 week #1uptransformationchallenge participant Gina Maglio @ginaelizabethmaglio on a fantastic transformation!
This is her story
2020 was one of my hardest years. I found out that I was pregnant with my second child just as the pandemic started. It was such a scary time to be pregnant, and I was struggling. I had always had a passion for health and fitness, but I wasn’t staying active anymore and I wasn’t taking care of my body like it deserved. I needed to start living within my values again, so that I could be the best version of myself for my husband and babies.
That was when my husband found the 1UP New Year’s Challenge and asked me to do it with him. I never could have guessed how much it would change our lives! We started working out together and supporting each other every step of the way! With two kids under 2, it took so much teamwork, and the 1UP meal and exercise plans made it possible. The guides and supplements made the process less overwhelming and we started seeing results quickly. I started my days at 430 am and made us breakfast before we got the kids ready and got our workouts in. Throughout the challenge, we worked together to meal prep and make sure one another had time to exercise while juggling military life and family life. Each week, we took our progress photos and encouraged each other. Our workout time became our bonding time, and we are closer than we have been since we were dating. Becoming parents and managing all of our responsibilities had really taken a toll on us as a couple, but we have become best friends again. I love seeing him so happy and healthy, and I know it is just the beginning of a fitter and happier life for our family.
Now that I am healthier, everything feels easier for me to manage. I have started college classes, started prioritizing selfcare, lost 20 pounds and I am looking forward to getting my NASM certification to help others reach their goals. I will always be grateful for the 1UP Transformation Challenge for helping me to feel like myself again and bringing back my confidence. Thank you, 1UP! I did it for myself, my husband and my two beautiful children!”
