How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I’ve been a member at Fit Chick for a little more than 2 years. I found Fit Chick because I was looking for a place that would be a place that felt comfortable to workout at and I would want to keep going. I don’t like the big athletic clubs that feel so impersonal. Fit Chick felt like a good fit from the beginning, I enjoy working out and feel supported and encouraged in my health and fitness.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I have 4 active kids and I feel like my greatest accomplishment is being able to keep up with them. I can head out on a hike with them, bike rides and just running around with them.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? I feel like I stay motivated because every time I put myself and my health first I recognize how much better I feel and how all those other things in my busy life will get done and I feel better when doing them. My biggest obstacle is myself! I was never one to exercise and exercising has never become a real habit in my life. I figure it’s never too late to make a change in your life and FCE is helping me make that change!

What is your favorite part of FCE? What advice would you offer to newbies?  All the lovely people. Everyone is so wonderful, kind and supportive!

In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE.  FCE is fantastic and I am so happy that I found such a fun and supportive place!

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’ve been a member for about 9 months. I was looking for boot camp classes and found FCE online. I fell in love with the different classes and more importantly the supportive environment. It was a life changing decision.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? My greatest accomplishment so far is weight loss and the sense of accountability and accomplishment I have re-discovered in myself.

What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? I have a long term goal to lose 40 lbs before I travel to Cambodia with Habitat for Humanity in November. I’m half-way there! Seeing the numbers on the scale fall helps but I also have made friends with women in my classes who have encouraged me. And getting called out by the wonderful trainers when they haven’t seen me in a while reminds me to get my butt back in gear and get back into the gym. It’s been a huge motivator. My biggest obstacles have been losing focus and not paying attention to what I’m eating or making time for the gym. Fortunately I haven’t had a lapse in a few months and I feel great every time I leave the gym. Also, early morning classes are a challenge for me to get to (I love sleep!!!) But I’m working to make them a priority. Finally, I had an unexpected gallbladder surgery which has knocked me out of exercising for the next 4 weeks. I’m already having gym withdrawl!

What is your favorite part of FCE? The laughter and camaraderie I experience with the women in our classes. Even if I don’t know someone, by the end of class we’re encouraging, joking around and supporting each other on our individual journeys.

What advice would you offer to newbies? Try out all the different classes – I never thought I’d like Zumba and it’s become my favorite class. Don’t be afraid to speak up and introduce yourself to someone new. We’re all here to support each other and it’s fun to recognize folks and be able to call them by name.

 In one sentence how would you describe your experience at FCE. An inspiring community full of zany, compassionate women who are passionate about their health and fitness.
