Saturday 6am indoor/out door classes!
As far as my diet goes I thought I was a pretty good eater. I would have cereal and a banana for breakfast, salad w/chicken for lunch and then protein and veggies for dinner. A few months ago I decided to be really disciplined and cut out all sweets and ate three small meals. I lost my energy level and was struggling through my workouts. After getting some diet tips from The Training Floor I adjusted my diet to include a mid morning and mid afternoon snack I changed my breakfast to eggs, oatmeal and fruit and cut out carbs after 3pm. This is when I started to see the changes in my weight. I lost about 7 lbs and a size or 2 in my clothes. I used to be a 6 and now am a 2. I am finally right around where I want to be physically and size/weight-wise. I am in the best physical shape of my life at 38 yrs old and I feel great. Thank you Cat, George and Ray for getting me where I am today!!”
I now feel in May of ’09 almost a year after joining the TF in great shape, have strong core muscles and I love all the cardio and strength training that I benefit from each of the classes and I continue to see results… i have also learned to accept my body, listen to it With proper diet and exercise, you can do a lot to alter your shape, but you also have to accept the role genetics play. Once you understand your basic shape, you can let go of unattainable goals and replace them with real ones. Identify your best features and enhance them.
The Training Floor keeps me challenged and helps me move toward my goal daily…
Thanks guys, keep up the good work!!”
“I started going to boot camp last August. Darcie had seen the newspaper article about the Training Floor and I was feeling out of shape and not ready for my September wedding. Darcie made me commit myself to going to boot camp at least until I got married. As you know, I went to your class twice a week. I was rather motivated with both the wedding and Darcie pushing me to go. By September, with just one month of attendance, I felt great! I didn’t look much different but I felt good about myself.
After I got married, however, I slacked off. I was on again, off again with my attendance and I eventually slowed down. I couldn’t keep up with my workout buddies and started feeling self conscious. So I stopped for a while.
This year, I’m trying to get back on track by starting out with the beginner courses for both boot camp and kettlebell. Although work commitments, vacation and family emergencies have made my attendance spotty, I feel good about starting over again.
I really enjoy the Training Floor and its trainers. You guys have been especially motivating and push me to work harder when I am ready to call it quits. I must admit that I was intimidated at first but, like I said, I am enjoying being a member of such a great place.”
“The TF has definitely changed my life. I started a year after the birth of my third child. It was the summer of ’08 and I was a size 12. I can still remember the feeling of nausea that came over me during my first intense outdoor boot camp workout. It was truly unlike anything I had ever tried before. I didn’t know I would be able to finish but pride pulled me through. After all I couldn’t allow a bunch of strangers to see me pass out!! Well fast forward 9 months, those “strangers” are now my dear friends and I am now wearing a size 8. Oddly at the beginning of this journey, that was my goal, but now I that I am there, I realize I still have more left in me!!! The TF trainers have taught me anything is possible if you want it enough and are willing to work for it. They have made working out enjoyable by offering a variety of challenging classes and always mixing it up. Their support and encouragement make me believe I can dream bigger. I LOVE YOU TF!!!!”
In the year of ’09 there are exciting events that will be happening at The Training Floor. We never stop learning, growing, and expanding here. I’d like to applaud and share my gratitude with those of you who have been by my side since the beginning. To celebrate and continue to press forward with those of you who have filtered in since 08 til now. Lastly encourage you to share your Training Floor experience with family, friends, and co-workers. Fitness can be fun- spread the word! Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement so lets keep working hard! It truly is all about YOU!
