"I choose to exercise frequently for multiple reasons. As a mother, it’s important that I stay as healthy and active as possible in order to be interactive with my children. I would hate to look back and realize that all the things my children did, I watched from the sidelines.
As a licensed massage therapist, I am constantly encouraging my clients to maintain a healthier, more active lifestyle. I refuse to be a "do as I say, not as I do" provider.
Lastly, I do this for me. Eating healthy and exercising keeps me feeling better inside and out!"
-Laura Russell, 30
Laura is a great example of a person who was never an athlete or exerciser who changed her habits and made gym exercise a part of her lifestyle. She comes in before her workday and has made it a habit. Laura has small kids and a busy self-employed career so she could have plenty of excuses not to come to the gym. She has busy and hectic weeks, but she never lets one week turn into one month away from the gym—and her body has responded to this commitment with 16 pounds of fat loss—so far!
Laura is also a very personable and friendly person, fitting right in with all the other great people we have at here Sparta’s #1 gym! Congrats Laura, and keep up the great work!
