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!

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I have been a member of Fit Chick for less than a year.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? I love knowing that it will be a different, challenging workout every time I go! My biggest challenge is listening to my body and knowing that there are some things I just shouldn’t do.

 What is your favorite part of FCE?  I like the format of a half hour of hard work in the boot camps. It’s quick but effective. I also love the constant instruction and guidance from Angie. I feel like I have a personal trainer while I’m working out to tell me if I’m doing something wrong or offer advice for better form or intensity. I also love the variety of different work outs.

 What advice would you offer to newbies? Try it out! It’s a great group of women who provide a supportive atmosphere.

In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE.  Supportive, tough, rewarding and fun!

Fall Back Into Fitness with a FRIEND!

fitness-friendsHow did you spend your summer time vacations? Chances are it consisted of lots of fun with lots of foods and drinks! Now that Fall is here, kids are back to school, its time for YOU to get back to eating good, working out regularly and feeling great in your body!

What’s even better?? Working out with a Friend! Can’t decide between working out or meeting up with an old friend? Do both! Plan weekly workout dates with your friends and then catch up afterwards. This is an awesome way to stay social but STILL stick to your fitness routine!

When it comes to losing weight and getting in shape, a buddy makes it so much easier—and a whole lot more fun!

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? One year. I drove by FCE several times on my way home from work and thought why not?  I saw there was a two week trial and said to myself ‘I can do anything for 2 weeks’. I loved the two week trial and have continued ever since.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I have lost weight and several inches since coming here. It keeps me motivated to continue on a path of a healthy lifestyle. When first starting the classes, there were many exercises I couldn’t do and now I can! I never thought I’d say this but even the burpees are easier than before…….

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? The different work outs each day are motivating. IT IS NOT BORING!!! 😉  I love that everyday it’s different and challenging from the cardio, strength and core training.  I also had chronic shoulder pain from college sports that was awful each and every day.  I am so happy to say that pain is 95% gone now!  I owe this to FCE.

What is your favorite part of FCE? I really love how the instructors keep me motivated by changing it up, encouraging me, challenging me & modifying the exercises when needed.

What advice would you offer to newbies? Keep coming!!!  It’s fun and the work outs do get easier.  You will look forward to coming to class! It’s a Happy Place.

In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE. I’ve had a wonderful, positive and life changing experience that I hope to continue at FCE

How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I started Fit Chick Express over two years ago. I wanted a workout that I could do 5 days a week that was challenging without being over-the-top exhausting. 

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I actually come to class 5 days a week. That has always been my goal, but with other workouts I honestly wasn’t that motivated and made excuses not to go. I don’t do that with bootcamp and PIYO. (Okay sometimes I do.) I just honestly love coming to class!

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? Big motivating factors for me are:1) The workouts are fun! I love the workouts because they are always different. My previous workouts (gym classes, yoga) were too predictable for me and I would get bored. 2) The women. It’s just fun to get together with a group of women who genuinely like each other and want to have fun and get healthy together. 3) It’s only 30 minutes. I can do anything for 30 minutes! 4) I feel and look better now that I’m doing bootcamp and PIYO. I rarely get sick, I’m super strong, and I just put on my first mini-skirt of the season and noticed how long and lean my legs looked! (Thanks PIYO!)

What is your favorite part of FCE? All of the above, but if I had to pick THEE number one thing I love about FCE I would say it’s the workout, namely the Bootcamp/PIYO combo. The workouts are designed to engage different muscles everyday, so I feel functionally stronger than ever. I get cardio, strength, balance and core all in one package at FCE.

What advice would you offer to newbies? One of the greatest things about FCE is that we’re just a bunch of normal women. (Well, okay not really.) What I mean is that we are not “cookie cutter”. We all have different shapes and sizes. There’s no competition or pretentious attitude. We don’t need expensive exercise clothes or gear. If you think you don’t “look right” or that you don’t have the body type for this workout, you’re wrong.

 In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE. It’s a blast!
