Seven years ago,,,

my journey to get healthy started. I was tired of feeling fluffy. I started Weight Watchers hoping it would keep me accountable. I lost a few pounds here and there, but would gain a few here and there too. It was an ongoing vicious cycle that seemed like it would never stop.

Almost a year later, Stacey entered the picture. She was just starting New Heart Fitness. Her kids were attending the school where I worked.  Stacey posted a few flyers around school advertising her training program. After thinking about it for a few days I decided to take the plunge and give it a try. Why not? The first two classes were free, it would be offered where I worked, and I would be doing it with some of my friends.

The next week, I found myself in the school’s lunch room for the first class. It was great! I didn’t feel weird or singled out. I felt great after the first workout and was truly excited to come back. The next class Stacey approached me and suggested that I added an additional class each week to improve my form. She promised I would just need to do the extra class for a month.

A month later…my form had improved and I was hooked. I kept with two classes a week and jumped on board with a healthy eating challenge she was offering. I also stopped Weight Watchers after losing weight on Stacey’s program. I am still with her today.

There have been many benefits to working out and having a personal trainer. I have a new way of thinking. I use to hate being sore after a workout but now I feel cheated when I don’t feel sore.  I feel better after working out. Some days I feel too tired to workout after work. However, just getting there and working out helps me feel better and I am more productive when I get home.

Finally, it has benefited me during my first pregnancy. Working out throughout my entire pregnancy helped me with the common aches and pains. Now my baby is almost a year old and I am still working out. I am looking forward to seeing what these upcoming years will bring as I become stronger.

Fitness has become part of my lifestyle.

Never quit,
Brittany R.
