Reps4Recovery welcomes people at all stages in their recovery and AT every level of fitness. Whether you have been sober for one month or five years, you are welcome. Whether you have never touched a barbell before or you are a seasoned lifter, you are welcome. THE ONLY MEMBERSHIP FEE TO THOSE IN RECOVERY FROM ADDICTION OR ALCOHOLISM, IS THE DESIRE TO BE SOBER AND BE A PART OF AN ALL INCLUSIVE, JUDGEMENT FREE COMMUNITY.
HERE IS HOW R4R HAS DIRECTLY AFFECTED SOME OF THOSE IN THE PROGRAM.
For the last five years, fitness and sobriety have been the two constants in my life. Both have kept me grounded and helped me realize how capable, strong and driven I am. To have a program like Reps4Recovery in my hometown has been amazing. It gives me a break from my normal gym programming and pushes me to try new things in a gym with people who celebrate successes rather than judge one's past. Being part of this program has brought me to a point in my sobriety where I feel comfortable being open about it and sharing my story with others, and I credit a lot of that to the openness and inclusiveness of the members of the group.
Reps has given me a healthy way to express myself and deal with things that I have going on in my life. As well as introduced me to some great people that helped me to put down some of the walls that I’ve put up around myself!
