How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I came to Fit Chick in August 2014. I was very depressed we moved here and I was really having a hard time meeting any new friends. I had gained several pounds not sure exactly how many but a lot. I came for my trial visit the November before but did not join at that time I guess I just was not ready. I really wished I would have started in November but I am here now and that’s all that matters.
What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? Learning to be me and accepting who I am. I used to look in the mirror, I did not like what I saw but today I’m ok with who is looking back at me. I have learned I am not the only person who struggles with their weight daily. Oh yea and I finished a Spartan Race.
What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? The Clown Car J sometimes it’s that text at 9:30 pm asking who is going in the morning that makes me get up and go. Also the great workouts and each day is a different workout. My obstacle that I had to overcome was to lean I am a strong person and I can do anything I put my mind to.
What is your favorite part of FCE? My favorite part is all the great women that I have met. When you walk in that door there are no strangers. We are just one big happy group of women who strive daily to overcome the obstacles of life. Yes FCE is about getting healthier but it’s also a place for us to go and talk about our everyday lives. I feel like I have meet lifelong friends.
What advice would you offer to newbies? I know it seems hard at first but keep coming, the more you come the easier it gets and the stronger you become. If you have a bad day Shake It Off and get up and go at it again the next day.
In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE? It’s been one of the most enjoyable, active, struggling improving experiences and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings. Thanks to everyone at FCE.
I love FCE and am grateful I found FCE.
