My wife and I joined Fit 4 Life just over a year ago. Health and fitness is a very important part of our daily routine and lifestyle.
Fitness is a "Condition of Employment" for me; now passing my 24th year in the Army, a high level of physical fitness is required to maintain proficiency in my current position and membership as a Soldier.
I had been using the Fort McCoy gym, however, the crowds made the process that usually relieves stress, just the opposite. Since I am not organic to Sparta, being a member of Fit4Life has also afforded me the opportunity to develop friendships within the community. Joining Fit4Life has been a great decision.
My husband and I have been members of Fit 4 Life for a little over a year. Joining the gym has been a great decision all around. Working out is a way of life for us. To stay motivated we try to spend time around people that have positive fitness goals.
I do work out at home occasionally, but I've found that I am easily distracted from working out. I need to go to the gym to keep my workout honest. I'm always grateful when other members share their workout tips and I love to read the bulletin boards for additional information and inspiration. All of it helps me enjoy this lifelong fitness journey.
When Tammy and Steve joined a year ago, as with all new people joining Fit4Life, I observed their attendance. Many come for a few weeks or months and then the novelty wears off or the expected quick results donít occur so soon other things in life take priority over gym time. That was not the case with Steve and Tammy. In fact, I think if we kept records for best 1st year attendance by a couple, they would be in the running for 1st place!
The Hillyers see the value of a Fit4Life membership because Steve could use the gym at the Fort and Tammy could exercise at home. So I know that they both take their exercise commitment seriously and find the investment well worth it.
Combine this with the fact that they are very nice people and Steve have been serving our country for 24 years, the Hillyers were an easy pick for Members of the Month!
