We’re excited to introduce you to this month’s Client Spotlight, Katie. Katie has been a part of our No Limits family for the last 2 years and we are incredibly lucky to have her! Those that attend our 8:30 or 9:15 am classes know that she’s super strong and lots of fun to workout with. Katie rocked her FitRanX Level 6 test and is currently training for Level 7! She’s a beast for sure and puts her all into every workout! Read on to learn more about Katie’s journey and how she accomplished her goals.
Q: What is your favorite inspirational quote?
A: Fall seven times and stand up eight.
When life knocks you down, stand back up; What matters is not the bad that happened, but what one does after.
Q: What are your personal health and fitness goals?
A: I believe that being healthy and fit should be a lifelong commitment with a constant flow of short-term and flexible goals. I want to stay active for as long as I can throughout the rest of my life.
Q: What ONE thing keeps you most focused and motivated to continue to work hard to reach your goals?
A: Honestly, it’s the results. When my muscles are sore, it motivates me to get in my next workout. I know that after the next workout, it will be another muscle group that’s sore, and I’ll be a little bit stronger from it.
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started with us?
A: I have always been active, but I never actually had a set workout routine. With a milestone birthday approaching, I was determined and ready to make a lifestyle change that I would stick to. I kept seeing No Limits popping up in my Facebook newsfeed, so I signed up for a trial and have been hooked ever since.
Q: How has No Limits Fitness made a difference in your life?
A: No Limits Fitness has given me the balance that I need in my life. After being a member for over two years, I can still say that I LOVE my gym, my gym family, the workouts, and the results. I go to the gym because I want to go whereas before exercising felt tedious and even boring.
Q: What kinds of milestones have you accomplished and what specific results have you achieved so far?
A: I feel great, I have a lot of energy and I am stronger than I have ever been. I’ve improved a lot in my physical strength and have transformed the way my body looks. I’ve completed six levels of FitRanX and am determined to get to Level 7 by the end of the summer.
Q: What made you decide to want to join No Limits Fitness?
A: I knew after the first class that No Limits was going to be the perfect fit for me. One of my favorite things about the program is how much variety there is in the workout both in a single class and over the course of the week. I also like the element of surprise before you get to see the workout of the day.
Q: What kinds of results have you achieved so far?
A: Although my size and weight are about the same, I’ve lost at least ten percent body fat and replaced that with lean muscle mass.
Q: What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals?
A: It won’t be a mistake. This is the type of commitment or decision that you can make and not get wrong. Start small, be realistic, optimistic and most of all, patient. Most goals require time, effort and persistence.
Q: What is your “word” of the year?!
A: Perspective. “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” ~Wayne Dyer
We are so proud of you, Katie! Keep up the amazing work!
