How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? My friend Deb told me about FCE back in 2012. I have been a member since then but had to take some time off because life got in the way. During that time, I worked out on my own but missed FCE a lot. I kept in touch but missed the women, workouts, and challenges.
What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? My greatest accomplishment is being able to hike/climb 14ers! It takes a lot of strength, endurance and perseverance to get to the top. It takes, not only physical ability, but mental as well. FCE gives you both – the physical strength, endurance and the mental capacity to stick it out and know you can do it.
What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? My motivation is purely to keep myself strong and healthy so I can continue to hike and climb mountains, keep up with my kids (and one day grandkids), help people, travel the world and truly live each day.
I think the biggest obstacle all women face is time – time to do things for ourselves, to put ourselves first. We all have insane ‘must do’ lists. FCE is 30 of the best minutes you’ll spend on yourself during the day. To overcome the time obstacle, I think of those mountains, kids and travel destinations… it gets me to FCE every time!
What is your favorite part of FCE? There are so many favorite parts! The women are incredible – they are strong in their hearts and body, they are open, loving, and crazy fun. My favorite exercises are strength exercises – I love the tire pull, ropes, TRX and kickboxing!
What advice would you offer to newbies? The best advice I can offer is to have a vision of your life to guide you and take it one day at a time. Life is easier when your body is strong, especially as you get older. When you start FCE, your body will be sore but you WILL see a difference in your strength and stamina in time.
In one sentence, how would you describe your experience at FCE. My experience at FCE has empowered me to take a firm hold of my future and live my very best life!
