“I am honored to be chosen Member of the Month here at Fit4Life. My story is simple though. I began coming to Fit4Life last August with a friend. At almost forty, I began to notice that my clothes were not fitting like they used to and my metabolism was slowing down. I have always been an aerobic exerciser off and on throughout my life, but I am certainly not what you would call an athlete. I am a teacher, wife, and a mother of a seven and ten year old. I really wasn’t sure I had the time to exercise consistently at this point in my life. After work, I am very busy “taxiing” my children. Then with dinner, homework, baths, etc., I knew if I was going to make working out a part of my life, I would need to squeeze it in before my family got up. I worked with Dave for four weeks before school started last fall. I had never really worked with weights before and this experience made me feel comfortable enough to continue the weight training and cardio work, coming in everyday at 5 am. I hadn’t/haven’t lost an enormous amount of weight, but my clothes began to feel less tight and when I returned to my spring/summer clothing in April, I could tell that my exercising daily was reshaping my body.
The great people that I have met over the past nine months exercising at Fit4Life are friendly and encouraging. I look forward to my morning workouts. They have truly become part of my life. I have more energy, feel better, and am more in control of my life. I have also come to realize that “Progression not Perfection” is a healthy way to view your body and personal fitness. I am never going to be a size 4, but I have definitely improved my fitness level. I can do things now that I couldn’t do fifteen years ago.
Thank you Dave and Fit4Life for making a happier and healthier me!”
By exercising in the morning, Amy has found a way to make exercise a regular part of her life. So many busy mothers like Amy, find reasons not to exercise and over the years add pounds and regret to their lives. When I first met Amy and trained her with a friend, she did seem skeptical about finding time to exercise so I thought she would likely not keep up her exercise program here. But she has, and it has become a part of her life she looks forward too. Furthermore, Amy’s friendly personality makes her a pleasure to be around. Keep up the great work Amy! -Dave
