How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I’ve been a Fit Chick for 6 months and I came seeking to get toned and feel better about how I looked. My friend Raluca has been going to the boot camp classes and she had great results.
What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I participated in a 10-week diet challenge and learned to eat better and incorporate more veggies in my meals. At the end of the challenge I was happy with how I felt and looked and got lots of compliments on the change. Now there’s no smoothie I’m making at home that doesn’t have spinach or kale in it!
What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? Seeing the results keeps me motivated. Finding time to work out was a serious obstacle! When I kept hearing health professionals saying one should exercise at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes, I thought it would be impossible for me to find the time. I am involved in lots of community activities and have a daily commute into Denver. Now I go to Fit Chick Express at least 3 times a week!
What is your favorite part of FCE? The women community here is extraordinary! We all make fun of how hard the workouts are (and yet we still come for some reason), but the instructors are very encouraging and knowledgeable on how to modify for one’s needs.
What advice would you offer to newbies? Working out at 6 AM is not that crazy: you get it done early in the day and it gives you the energy and stamina you need to survive a busy day.
In one sentence, how would you describe your experience at FCE? The FCE experience has been the answer to what I needed to push my physical abilities a step further.
