About 7 years ago I had my first bone density test which showed Osteopenia. I had always been an active person; however, the majority of my exercise was cardio-based. I was told that weight bearing exercise could have positive effects on my condition. I had another bone density scan 2 years later which showed the density had stayed the same in some areas and improved in others. I was ecstatic! I believe there are a number of reasons why this program works for me. Knowing that I am pre-scheduled for classes makes me accountable. The Trainers are top notch and keep me motivated by continually challenging me, constantly varying our workouts and modifying certain exercises to accommodate a few physical issues. I have made the very best of friends in my time working out here – complete with hugs, kindness, laughs, and tears!
I feel toned and strong! The program provides accountability and workouts that I love. I enjoy the Trainers and camaraderie of the other women.
At FCFW I can have exercise and nutrition in the same location, no longer do I have to go to Weight Watchers. I love the revolving encouragement and weekly changes in circuit training. This is a safe place where I can belong as my authentic self!
I have gained strength, endurance and energy! When I don’t make myself important, the team here makes me important. I’ve learned that doing this for ME makes me better for everyone else in my life. I’ve truly had a mindset change and no longer worry about a number on the scale or my clothing size. Now I realize that feeling better and being able to do the things I want to do are the biggest rewards. I want to be around and have the energy to play with my future grandkids.
I have more energy, strength, and flexibility. I just plain feel good! My relationships have improved because I feel better and am mentally stronger. This is a lifestyle. You do it for the rest of your life if you want to feel good and I do!
I love the whole concept! Having a trainer there to make sure my form is correct and to motivate me is my favorite part. I also love how friendly the staff and other women are. Everyone is encouraging and the atmosphere is friendly and supportive, not threatening and competitive. Before joining, my plantar fasciitis was getting worse. Amazingly, the pain in my feet get better within 6 weeks. It has been the best experience ever!!
