While stopped at a red light in Long Island, Robyn Yanick passed a billboard for the Astoria Gold’s Gym’s new Bridal Bootcamp program, run by Cynthia Conde. Robyn had become engaged earlier that year and was planning a spring wedding that coming May. She strolled into the Gold’s Gym and signed up for 60 sessions with Cynthia with just six months to go until the big day.
At the beginning of her six month training session, Yanick weighed 161 pounds and wore a size 14. After signing up for the Bridal Bootcamp program she became so determined to succeed that she bought a $4,000 designer wedding dress in a size 8. There was no turning back now – Yanick had a lot of hard work ahead of her in order to ensure she would even fit into her wedding dress for the walk down the aisle.
Conde started Yanick off on a strict diet consisting of five smaller, healthy meals and a vitamin regimen. “I trained three days a week with Cynthia,” said Robyn Yanick. “She had me focus on strength training and toning.” On the days where Yanick was not training with Conde, Robyn focused her efforts on easy cardio workouts that she could do at home.
As the wedding grew closer, the diet and exercise routines became more intense. Yanick, determined to fit into her designer dress, gave up all carbohydrates and ate small meals consisting of vegetables and proteins. Her workouts grew in length and she trained as often as possible, focusing her energy on her overall fitness goal.
On the day of her wedding, Yanick had managed the impossible – not only was she able to fit into her wedding dress, but it was too big! The dress had to be taken in to fit the new, size 4, Robyn Yanick. She was so happy with the results of the Bridal Bootcamp program that, two years after her wedding, she has chosen to continue training with Cynthia Conde.GO BACK
