When you work for a big fitness company it is easy to get in your workout sessions. It is a perk of being in an environment that is supportive of fitness and health.
But when you move on from the organization it can be hard to make hour long sessions. You have to factor in getting to and from the gym, parking, showering and attending an hour long workout. Fitting all of this into your lunch break can be tough. Our client Kim was in precisely this situation when she found us. She had great habits when her environment supported them but when her work life changed things fell by the wayside…
Kim enjoys exercising and eating right but she knows, like many of our clients, when it isn’t convenient the priority can be shifted to the backburner…
Kim says she had driven past our MPower Fitness studio location for several years. It is just 1 mile from her house. Something made her check it out. She was inconsistent with her workouts after taking a new job and she wanted that to change. “I was turning 50- and I wanted to be strong. I had focused on spin/ cardio for so long, but never felt like I was working my whole body. Burning calories but…I knew that wasn’t enough. “ She says she wanted to go into 50 feeling STRONG. She remarks, “Now it’s fun to hear my son says I could kick Dads ass”.
Since joining, she says “I’m stronger. And I’m consistent in getting to class. It is such a part of my life.” Her sister and friend have joined and she is hoping that they feel as strong as her. She knows when she isn’t getting in her sessions because she doesn’t feel as good. “I get crabby if I don’t feel my body. If I go two days, and I can no longer feel my arms are sore or thighs are tight then – I know I have to get back to MPower Fitness.”
We are glad that Kim has found us and become consistent again with her exercise program! She says she “loves the program, the people, camaraderie and energy”
