We hear a variety of myths about fitness and our services as people are considering becoming a part of our Fit Family.
-I need to get in shape to become a boot camp member
-I’m already in shape so 30 minutes can’t possibly be enough
-I play/ do xyz sport so I don’t need to do any strength training
And the list goes on…
Our dedicated and successful early morning client Karen C came to us already in fantastic shape but looking for something she could do on a tight schedule.
Karen was in great shape as a volleyball player in high school and in early adulthood. She had children and noticed when her youngest was about 1 year old that she had gotten out of shape.
She was inspired to resume athletics when she saw Ironman participants in the heat of their big triathlon event. She convinced some friends to sign up and train with her for a sprint triathlon. Over the course of the next four years, she trained for and participated in many triathlon races, but eventually the time commitment (both to training and away from her family) took its toll. Karen found herself burnt out on triathlons and looking for something faster and more convenient.
Enter exercise DVDs.
For Karen, the issue was never about getting to the workouts or getting the work done. She was and is very self-motivated, but after several years of individual sports and training alone- doing videos in her basement- she was bored and lonely.
Karen says, her initial goal was to get to FBBC 3-4 times per week. Most weeks she makes it 5-6 sessions per week. She says she hasn’t lost any weight or inches but that wasn’t the objective.
What she wanted to see if she could do was maintaing her already great physical shape with less time dedicated to exercise. She has done this AND met some new people and gotten closer to existing friends. We call that a win.
Wins come in many forms and they won’t be the same for each person –
Whether your fitness goals including losing 20lbs of fat, being in better shape for the sports you play or maintaining great shape with minimal time invested MPower Fitness and MPower Fitness are here to help.
