‘I Lost Nearly 40 Pounds In 6 Months—Here’s How I Did It’

Blair Helwig found a workout that motivated her to change everything.

Before: 162 lbs

After: 124 lbs

In May of 2016, I was the heaviest I’d ever been in my life. I moved to New York City in July of 2013 and became completely career-oriented, which made it difficult to strike a work-life balance. I was eating anything and everything. I wasn’t necessarily in a dark or unhappy place to begin with, but my eating habits led to weight gain and that began to make me unhappy. I joined ClassPass in 2015 with hopes of finding a workout to fall in love with, but nothing was clicking. On top of that, I felt so busy at work that I was only going to three or four classes a month.
