Staying healthy, increasing my energy, keeping a positive outlook, and feeling younger than my years are my motivation. Exercising makes me happy. Pretty powerful medicine!
I am so much stronger than before I became a member. I had always done cardio but found strength-training boring, so I never did it. That all changed when I was out for a jog when I first moved to Libertyville, I heard music and commotion coming from a building close to my house, I went to investigate. There was Heather inside the First Street studio with the garage door open, music blasting - she invited me in to try a kettlebell class and the rest is history! I cancelled my other gym membership and never looked back.
The change in my body. I am stronger, leaner, fitter and look better in my clothes 😊
Plus, I love the community. I have met so many great people that encourage me and lift my spirits. There is always something to learn from other members and the instructors. I also love all the different age groups in the classes; it gives me a great perspective on where I've been and where I am going.
I have so much more energy and physical stamina that allows me to play and actively keep up with my four awesome grandkids. My sleep has improved 100%.
I take one day off a week to recover, get a massage, and try to meditate - but I usually end up taking a short nap.
When I started it took me 3 weeks to get into a routine. Now, I don’t even think about it. I set my alarm, get my clothes ready and fill up my water bottle so I can roll out of bed with no time to think about it. I get to class ready to roll. No time to make excuses.
