In honor of the Milestone Trainer Challenge, this is a compilation of pictures showing the heart and determination displayed on "Day 1".  Milestone personal trainers practiced what they preach to their clients about setting goals, working, sweating, and when things get tough... pushing through the pain and using will-power to fight against fatigue.  Personal trainers are not finished products.  They work hard every day to become healthier, stronger, and better versions of themselves.  Let these pictures empower you as a Member of Milestone, to free yourself from the thought, "What are other people thinking?"  Instead focus on your goals and visualize yourself achieving what you set your mind to.  You can do it!  We believe in you!  Check out the great quotes throughout this article, from Milestone Personal Trainer Brenna Tomlinson!
