Genai Heinrichs

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!

28 Day Interval Challenge

4b1c572fe86e5841_1545977b1743e558_jump-squat-jpg-xxxlarge-xxxlarge

28 Day Cardio/Interval Challenge  

Sept 19-Oct 16th

Challenge Fees -$25

*Not a current member of FCE, join for 1 Month of Unlimited Boot Camp for just $79!

 

What is an interval workout:

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is a form of exercise characterized by periods of hard work followed by brief periods of recovery or rest. This form of exercise is a highly efficient means of improving your fitness level and burning body fat. Why is HIIT superior to steady state cardio like jogging when it comes to fat burning? It’s because your body primarily uses sugar (glucose) during the intense exercise bout and uses stored body fat during the recovery phase as well as post-exercise. Your body also continues to burn fat hours after you complete your interval workout!

GOAL IN EACH WORKOUT: Track your reps per timed intervals or time your entire workout and increase or at least maintain the same amount of reps. You will be given a sheet to print out each workout for the week and mark down your reps and time. This will help you to push harder each time! Points will be given for each workout you complete. Point system will be explained once you join.

Also included:

  • Private Facebook Group- Daily Check Ins- Accountability
  • Daily Workouts to do on your own at home with tracker (w/videos)
  • HIIT/Finishers for after Boot Camp with tracker (or at home if you are not a member of FCE)
  • Weight/Body Fat Measurements will need to be taken
  • Modifications of exercises given if needed

Challenge Winner:

Each challenger will be asked to set a REWARD for the end of their challenge, ie: new pair of shoes, new jeans, massage, etc. There will be one winner who has the most points from doing as many workouts as possible. TIE BREAKER will be based on whomever has lost the most body fat in the 28 days.

Featured Fit Chick – Rebecca

Rebecca Michuda

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? January 2016. I did a boot camp in Chicago for 2 and half years and really loved it. I was looking for something similar and came across Fit Chick. It was right up alley. Also, since moving to Colorado three years ago, I sort of got off my exercise routine. It was about time I got back on! I knew Fit Chick could help me do that.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? Feeling stronger, not dying every time I work out, oh, and losing 10 pounds!!! Overall, it’s feeling good about myself and my fitness level.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? A morning workout is the way I like to start my day. It makes feel awake and accomplished all before 7am. I’m motivated to keep that a part of my daily routine. Feeling good, healthy and fit keeps me motivated as well. The obstacles I face are the workouts themselves. It’s pushing myself every time to keep going, to hang in there. I try to keep in mind that it’s not supposed to feel good! It’s gonna hurt! But that’s the only way to get stronger in every way.

What is your favorite part of FCE? All you hilarious ladies! Hearing your stories and jokes makes me laugh and keeps things fun. I love how we all can do this together. I might not be close friends with everyone, but I know we’re all in this together and we have each other’s back. It’s a great support.

What advice would you offer to newbies?  We’re all in this together. If you think it’s hard? Guess what? It’s hard for ALL OF US. Just hang in there, try your hardest every day and do what you can do. There is absolutely no judging at FCE.

In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE.  My experience at FCE has been positive, motivating, fun, challenging and just what I needed to start exercising again and getting healthy. It has been the push I needed.

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I started with personal training at Fit Chick Express two years ago in September since I knew I needed more than a diet change to lose weight, keep it off, and become healthier. I started attending bootcamp in November 2014.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? It is definitely feeling and looking better at 60 than I did at 50!

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? Since losing 20 lbs after joining, I got rid of all my larger clothes. No way do I want to go back to have 3 different sizes of clothes in my closet necessary for weight fluctuations. I’m motivated to continue getting stronger and leaner.

What is your favorite part of FCE? My major obstacle has been the multiple surgeries over my lifetime; the latest September 2015 for a torn rotator cuff. It’s been a long rehab and healing process. That affects how hard and how much I can do on any given day.

 What advice would you offer to newbies?  It’s hard to pick just one favorite! Knowledgeable staff that deals with all the modifications necessary due to previous injuries. The variety of classes offered. All the wonderful and supportive members of FCE and the Facebook community. Lately I’ve been relying on the nutritional support for an overall fitness approach included in membership.

In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE.  Make a commitment to start, then come and just do what you can! Everyone has been in your shoes and you’ll find only support and encouragement at FCE!
