Everyone & Every Journey Starts Somewhere
I personally know how it feels to be scared and self-conscious, that's how I felt the first day I walked into Fitness Together to meet with Michael. But, I also knew I needed a personal trainer if I was going to be successful with any type of weight loss. It also helped that he made me feel comfortable and never once made me feel like I was unimportant or not normal. Of course he might have a different opinion now on if I'm normal or not...LOL! :) But, what I started to think about was how far I've come in the three years I've been training at FT. When I first started, I was using the 15 pound kettlebell for swings and I didn't even know what a burpee was until about four months into training. And today I'm using anywhere from a 55 to 70 pound kettlebell for swings, goblet squats, sumo squats, and many other kettlebell exercises. And then of course I think I've done more burpees than any person should ever have to do, but I've done from floppy burppes, one-legged burpees, one-armed burppees, to even (not so graceful) one-legged/one-armed burpees, and I'm sure there are more variations to come. What I want everyone to understand, is whatever you are wanting out of your own personal health and fitness journey, remember everyone has to start somewhere! So, get out there, do the work, and you can only get better!
