How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I have been at Fit Chicks since August 2014. I came to Fit Chicks first to try getting back into working out with personal training. I worked with Alicia and really enjoyed it! After the month of personal training, I decided to try the Boot Camp. I loved it! The other women there were very nice and pushed me in a good way. To this day I still get pushed in a good way by other Fit Chicks.
What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? After being at Fit Chicks for a while there was a challenge that I joined. Everyone who joined this challenge was a great support and I ended up losing at least 12 pounds and gaining more confidence in myself. The other Fit Chicks are still there for advice and support even without the challenge!
What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? Seeing results has helped keep me motivated. I know I have my days where I don’t want to work out. But I know what kind of results I will see with my body if I keep going and pushing myself. I think the biggest obstacle I have had to overcome knowing that I can do things that are out of my comfort zone. I did the challenge and also the Diva Dash. And in August I will participate in the Mudderella for the first time! I am excited but nervous for this mud run!
What is your favorite part of FCE? My favorite part of FCE is the women who lead the classes and participate in the classes. No one judges me if I take a break or if I am struggling. They are there encouraging me and reminding me that I can do it! I have found myself doing the same for other FCE members. It feels like a community and everyone is welcome. I talk with these women before Boot Camp and on Facebook to stay connected. I love that I have friends and not just people I see at the gym.
What advice would you offer to newbies? Keep going! All of your aches and pains are good. That means you are pushing yourself. If you need advice, ask other Fit Chicks and they are always more than happy to help. If you are not friends with FCE on Facebook, do it! That has been the best form of communication with all of my Fit Chicks. I feel comfortable asking for advice on that page. Just remember, we are a community.
In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE? Joining Fit Chicks Express has been one of the best decisions in my life!
