A real-life Wonder Woman soars among the PumpUp community and she’s absolutely one of PumpUp’s success stories of 2014. Not only did support from the pumpupapp motivate @latinwonderwoman to become a personal trainer, Jiselly shared that she just got accepted into medical school and will continue to provide guidance with the added knowledge that she’ll gain. Learn how Jiselly transformed her body and achieved all of her goals in 2014 with support from PumpUp, hard work, and determination.
Jiselly began to lead an active lifestyle in order to relieve the stress brought on by the pressure of her MCAT exams and medical school applications. In October 2013, at this early stage of her health and wellness journey, she decided to become a member of the PumpUp community. “After I downloaded the PumpUp app, I realized that I was not alone,” she confirmed. “I received the support of so many people. We encourage each other to become better and I now embrace fitness as a lifestyle.”
The PumpUp community is extremely proud of Jiselly for accomplishing so much since she became a member. Constant motivation and support from Jiselly’s PumpUp followers pushed her to complete her personal trainer certification. “Being a personal trainer is awesome because I’m able to help others lead a healthier lifestyle before I ultimately become a physician,” she said. “Before PumpUp, I was a simple pre-med student and a cardio bunny. Now my exercises are more fun and I am able to put routines together in 2 seconds just by using the application.” She explained that her body transformed completely within the span of a year and a half of using PumpUp. “I am stronger with more muscle definition, and became a personal fitness trainer thanks to the support of members who have been following me from the beginning,” she affirmed.
As a teenager, Jiselly struggled with weight gain. “I never felt capable of reaching my fitness goals because I lacked guidance,” she admitted. “I ate a lot of sweets and unhealthy food and I did not drink much water because I never did so as a child.” She was bullied at school for being overweight, but strong enough to ignore the negativity that permeated her younger years. “I loved myself then and I love myself today even more,” she asserted. “Being fit is just a plus!”
She urges other PumpUp members and those looking to lead a more active lifestyle in 2015 to redefine their conceptions of health and fitness. “Think about this as a lifetime journey,” Jiselly counseled. “Do not put a time frame to your fitness goals. Exercise as much as you can, learn to love it, and learn how to enjoy it.” She encourages other PumpUp members to view all aspects of health and fitness out of love, rather than out of pure necessity. “Loving what you do is going to help you be consistent,” she insisted. “One day, you will compare the person you became with the person that you were and you’ll notice how much you accomplished. Trust me, this is how I do it.”
Jiselly’s greatest source of motivation is from her PumpUp followers and her clients. “I will never let them down,” she promised. “They know me as a strong person who has accomplished a lot and I will continue to inspire them through my posts, even after I begin medical school. I’ll have more knowledge and I will be able to provide them with more guidance.”
