I used to be fit, and then I had children. Don’t get me wrong, having children is certainly no excuse, but I suffered from a lack of motivation and a feeling of guilt any time I thought about doing something for myself. I gained over sixty pounds with my first child, and was lucky enough to lose it very quickly, simply by breastfeeding. My second pregnancy came, and I figured living on ice cream and Mexican food would not be a big deal because I lost it so easily the first time. As a result, I gained the same amount of weight, but this time I only lost 15 lbs. I maintained this weight through two more children, and finally I had had enough. I was tired of being tired, of being embarrassed that I was winded going up a flight of stairs, and of feeling guilty at the lack of the energy I had to play with my children. That is when I looked up Lisa’s website. Lisa and I have children at the same school. I figured, if nothing else, hiring her would be a good idea because I would see her in the hallways every morning. When I looked at her website the thing that stuck with me is her tag line, “Making Fitness Fit You.” Nothing could be more true; every week I feel like my time with Bodyzone is tailored to make my fitness goals a reality. Lisa has taken the time to welcome my children in the sessions, to walk me through realistic goals, and to design programs specifically for me. The programs are probably the most empowering, personally. I can see, in each day that she has planned, how that routine is going to get me to my goal. So, every time I lace up, I know what specifically I am working toward. The results have been fantastic. I have more energy. When I eat, I actually feel full and refreshed. My children ask to do more things again, because I have the get up and go to say “yes” without hesitation. I am back in clothes that I haven’t worn since before my second child was born. When it is time to workout I am excited to see how else I can push my body, and I look forward to seeing where my goals will take me next.
