How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I’ve been a member of Fit Chick for about 9 months. I came to Fit Chick after moving to Colorado from NY. A work friend, hint red hair/completely crazy, told me about this place and was very inviting!

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I’ve lost some weight, gained some muscle. No idea how much gained or lost because I don’t measure! My greatest accomplishment here has nothing to do with physical changes but all the mental ones. My attitude towards food, working out and eliminating my shy temperament. Okay still working on the shy thing- but Fit Chick changes more than your body for sure.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? What keeps me motivated is the high of feeling good. Whenever I don’t want to show up to class I try to really focus on that “I just worked out and I feel so amazing” vibe and carry on.

My shoulder pain is a huge obstacle- plus I’m really uncomfortable in groups. So, when you have an injury and are in a group of people and you can’t participate in the same activity, well, it makes you (maybe just me?) feel strange. I really had to get over myself and accept that I can’t do some things and it’s okay!

What is your favorite part of FCE? The community is really great! I love the variety of classes and instructors!

What advice would you offer to newbies?  Try every class! Find what you love, let go what you don’t. Talk to the trainers, tell them what hurts and make the adjustments and just have fun!

In one sentence, how would you describe your experience at FCE.  FCE has been an uplifting, inspiring and loving place.

 How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I first joined Fit Chicks in 2010. My good friend won the challenge that year and looked AMAZING (she still does)! I had to see what she was doing! I left thinking I could find something better, more challenging, or convenient. Sometimes you don’t know what you have until it’s gone! I rejoined about a year ago.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? My greatest accomplishment is making a commitment to myself. I hold myself accountable and take time for ME!

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? My kids keep me motivated. Wanting to change keeps me motivated. Of course, Angie, Bobbie, Aimee and Stephanie help, too! I’ve had many obstacles to overcome including poor body image and eating disorders. Also, I have a bad back; degenerative disk disease, and that can really interfere with my fitness goals.

What is your favorite part of FCE? My favorite part of Fit Chicks are all the strong, funny, lovely ladies! Besides that, you can’t beat the convenience and great motivation.

What advice would you offer to newbies?  Give it a try! It’s a great addition to whatever else you are doing, or a great start to a healthy lifestyle.

In one sentence, how would you describe your experience at FCE. My journey with Fit Chicks has been challenging, rewarding and FUN!

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I have been coming to Fit Chicks for 3 years. I met Angie at an event and signed up for her newsletter. I received her newsletter for over a year and finally took her up on a free two week trial.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I finally felt good enough to be in my family pictures! I sent one to EVERYONE I knew and even had them framed and put up around our house! It is a reminder of how hard I worked to get to that “comfortable” place.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? I have had many injuries, but love that the Fit Chicks team is so open to modifying workouts and it keeps me motivated to not give up.

What is your favorite part of FCE? My favorite part of Fit Chicks Express is knowing that I’m going to get a great workout in a short time! My time is very valuable and I need every minute to count! In 30 minutes I feel strong and confident when I leave! An added bonus…If you haven’t been for a while Angie will call you out! Funny thing is you’ll be back the next day ready to jump back in!!

What advice would you offer to newbies?  Try everything Fit Chick has to offer! You won’t be disappointed!

In one sentence, how would you describe your experience at FCE.  Fit Chick Express has given me a place to feel confident about myself and my body. I enjoy the other women that work out with me and feel motivated to continue my journey to being fit!

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I’ve been a member at Fit Chick for a little more than 2 years. I found Fit Chick because I was looking for a place that would be a place that felt comfortable to workout at and I would want to keep going. I don’t like the big athletic clubs that feel so impersonal. Fit Chick felt like a good fit from the beginning, I enjoy working out and feel supported and encouraged in my health and fitness.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I have 4 active kids and I feel like my greatest accomplishment is being able to keep up with them. I can head out on a hike with them, bike rides and just running around with them.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? I feel like I stay motivated because every time I put myself and my health first I recognize how much better I feel and how all those other things in my busy life will get done and I feel better when doing them. My biggest obstacle is myself! I was never one to exercise and exercising has never become a real habit in my life. I figure it’s never too late to make a change in your life and FCE is helping me make that change!

What is your favorite part of FCE? What advice would you offer to newbies?  All the lovely people. Everyone is so wonderful, kind and supportive!

In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE.  FCE is fantastic and I am so happy that I found such a fun and supportive place!
