Joyce is our October client of the month and has improved her flexibility by 0.75 inches, ability to hold a plank longer by 22 seconds, and moreover decreased body fat by 2.2%!
This is what Joyce has to say about her progress.
What was your reason for starting at Fitness Together?
Upon retiring after 30 years of high pressure employment, I realized that I was not in shape to pursue the activities on my “bucket list.” Years of non-activity had taken their toll. I needed to improve my flexibility, stamina and strength and needed some help to do it.
What has Fitness Together helped you with most? And how has FT helped with your nutrition?
FT has helped me to integrate nutrition with my workouts. Through keeping a food diary, I now have a realistic take on what I eat. Paula's nutrition counseling sessions were an integral part of helping me to reshape my eating habits. I now understand that losing weight is an important part of my long term health goals and it wont happen by just wishing the pounds to disappear.
How do you think you have most improved since working with Fitness Together?
Mental attitude is key to making any significant life style change. My trainer Jesse has helped me to believe that I can make progress! I am amazed that I can do so many things that were totally out of the realm of possibility when I started. Walking lunges are a good example. When I first joined FT I couldn't do even one stationary lunge. Never thought I could be a person that does these!
What do you like the most about the staff or atmosphere?
All of the staff at FT are so professional, warm and welcoming. The overall atmosphere is positive and upbeat. The trainers meet you where you are and workouts are geared to your specific needs and goals. I am so pleased with the overall improvement in my flexibility, balance and strength since I have been training at FT.
Do you have any funny or inspiring tales of Fitness Together antics?
At the recent client appreciation night I was struck by the diversity of the FT client family. The clients come in all shape, sizes and ages. Many people have been coming for over 10 years. That is testimony to the quality personal training that FT provides.
