AboutSmall group Personal training, strong and burn classes
Exercise has always been part of my life, from long distance running in High School, competitive swimming in College and water aerobics in my early years of marriage. I was never overweight, but I was also never toned. Never the less, I believed that I had a healthy and balanced lifestyle. In September 2008, I returned from a wonderful 4- week holiday with my family. After that wonderful holiday, the image I faced in the mirror suddenly made me feel uncomfortable. I realized that I needed to address my lifestyle. The bridge between realizing that something needs to be done and actually doing something is unfortunately long and wide. A month later I came across an article on how to train for a 5 km race. This challenge finally lifted me out of my comfort zone (a comfort zone that at the time was not so comfortable any more, nor were any of my clothes!) On 20 October 2008, I took the first steps towards health, happiness and fitness. Every step since then has been a blessed journey of self discovery. There have been lows and disappointments, but I stuck to my commitment and I kept pushing forward. Fortunately the triumphs and joy far outweighed the lows. I have met the most amazing and inspiring people and I have made wonderful new friends who have guided me on my quest for fitness.
