Linda is a client that has been with us since June 2017, and continues to amaze us constantly with her dedication to her healthy lifestyle. No matter how busy she gets at work, she always gets her workout in. No matter how frustrated she’s gotten with the scale, she’s never once given up on herself. It’s been incredible to see the mindset shift in her to where she no longer cares what the scale says. Instead, she focuses on how she FEELS, how her clothes FIT, and the exercises that she can DO now that she couldn’t do before.
We can’t wait to see her progress in 2018!
Can you describe any reservations you had before you started working out at Fit For All, and how we helped you overcome those?
When I first signed up it was nothing I had ever done before. I had gone to a gym before, but would never stick with it. After I attended my first class, I realized that Paul was always able to modify exercises for me due to my arthritis in my ankle. He not only made me feel comfortable, but made me want to continue because there was always a modification if I needed one.
Describe your 1-2 top goals when you started at Fit For All and where you’re at with those goals.
My goals when I started were to lose weight and get healthier. I am excited that I am well on my way to crushing them and setting new goals for myself! The scale may not always reflect my progress, but what matters the most to me is my clothes becoming looser and that I feel better overall.
What have you achieved, both physically and mentally, so far?
About 2 months after joining Fit For All, I completed the Warrior Dash with my FFA family – which is something I never would have signed up for! Another positive would be that I miss my time away from Fit For All because we all help motivate each other. I am stronger than I ever thought I would be and doing things that I never thought I would be doing, both physically and mentally.
How has your experience at Fit For All differed from other fitness experiences you’ve had?
Usually I would decide to join a big box gym, and would go for a short period of time and then would lose motivation and stop going. My experience at Fit For All has been totally different as I look forward to attending class. I also have attended numerous workshops that FFA offers and always look forward to learning new things.
What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who is nervous to start their own fitness journey?
I would tell them that they will probably think that this is out of their comfort zone, but they need to try it before they write it off as something they “can’t do”. Sometimes we just need to find the right fit and then we will no longer feel outside of our comfort zone. I believe I found my fit at Fit For All.
