MEET LINDA! If this doesn’t inspire you I don’t know what will!
What motivates a person to make a commitment to workout in a group setting with a Trainer?
In my case, it was a desire to properly increase & maintain strength & stamina; be motivated; as well as have a better quality of life, therefore feeling better about myself. New Heart Fitness (Stacey) helps me accomplish all this as well as, knowing every workout is an improvement. Working out helps manage stress; maintain a better attitude, which benefits friends & family as well as myself in knowing I’m better to be around. Working out also increases my energy; and I have become physically stronger, which enables me to have a longer, more productive life. If it hadn’t been for a neighbor telling me where & when and saying “we should do this—tomorrow at 5:30 a.m.” I probably would not have been motivated. I had tried “making myself” walk & exercise at home & just couldn’t get committed! But once I went to a few classes & found it not too intimidating, I was hooked. The accountability works for me, as well as the social. I always have a positive experience & come away feeling energized, which motivates me to continue. It takes commitment and willpower——which is like a muscle-the more you use it, the stronger it gets.
Here’s hoping you are feeling motivated and positive to get committed to fitness at any age!
