Everyone talks about how beginning a workout regime will change your life and open all new avenues for release and a better well-being. My story is similar, but my motivation was slightly different. This past winter I had a doctor’s visit that changed everything that I thought about how healthy I was and that I wasn’t that out of shape. He explained to my wife and I that if something didn’t change real quick within 6 months she would be visiting me in the cemetery. As eye opening that a statement like that can be the look in the doctors eyes is what did it for me. He did not even try to hide his concern.
At that point the decision had been made in my mind. My next move was figuring out where to go from there. I can thank Coach Matt for getting me to make the plunge. He had been trying to get me to come to the Fighting Fit for quite some time. Hounding me and trying to get me to join. I had used every excuse under the sun; no time, no money, too much to do with work and the kids. He told me to quit whining and informed me that a Groupon had been put out there and convinced me to give it a shot. After my 1st month, there was no turning back.
The instructors are among the best trainers I have ever experienced. You can tell that they really enjoy what they are doing and love making people struggle to be better. It is that type of pressure and support that I needed to stick with my decision and that keeps me coming back day after day. Pushing me to change for the better and keeping me on the road to a healthier and happy life.
Change is what it was all about for me. The biggest of which in my life that I have noticed since joining has not been the numbers on the scale. Those have gone down, but where I have really noticed the difference is in my every day movements. I never realized how hard it was to get onto the ground and scoot under a car to change the oil, or bend over to tie my shoes. Since joining the Fighting Fit my agility has increased exponentially. Getting down to play with my kids, or look for something that I dropped is no longer something that I second guess doing. My clothes fitting better is a definite plus also.
The Fighting Fit and everyone there is great and amazing. Thank you for this opportunity and all the pushing to improve myself every day.”
