Healthy is the goal!
Meet Christine. We started working together in January and she consistently trains with me 2x per week. Look at these healthy improvements she has made in just 5 months – simply from beginning a workout routine. Health is so much more than a number on the scale (that will come too, I’m not worried). Her results are amazing and I am so proud of her! Her testimonial is below:
70 years old.
My main goal starting out was to become more limber and gain some balance that i have lost as I have gotten older. I also know that weight bearing exercise is crucial for bone density. So many of my friends were having trouble with osteoporosis or osteopenia. And we all complained about being stiff. I witnessed a big change in my best friend when she started training with Heidi. I wanted that change.
My changes have been significant. I have more body strength. I am still working on my balance but it has also improved. I don’t feel so stiff. In fact, way more limber. That part I love. But I got changes that were just icing on the cake. I have had weight loss and am still working on that but the big thing for me were my lab results from my physical. I have hypertension and high cholesterol in my family. I started on blood pressure meds in my 40’s. Cholesterol meds in my 50’s. I am on 2 high blood pressure meds. The very best BP I could get on those meds was 144/86 on a good day. I have been taking my BP routinely for the last month. It has never been over 126/70 on a bad day. My doctor said I haven’t had a decent BP like that for years. We are now looking to get me off the meds. My cholesterol runs any where from 225-260 on meds. My last reading was 201. It has not been that low for years. I look forward to getting it lower and off that med.
I am most proud of how much better i feel but that people tell me they see such a difference. It makes you feel good about yourself when others notice.
My biggest challenge was just getting there. But it is true that when you are accountable to your trainer and the friends that you have there who are encouraging you, it is like you don’t want to disappoint them. I think that is a great motivator (and of course the results).
My advice to anyone just starting out is to call me. I was encouraged and would love to encourage anyone that is skeptical or afraid to take the leap.
