THE ROAD TO RESULTS

Back in February 2020, I was just settling into a feel good “exercise routine”. I was working out at another gym when BAM – I broke my wrist.

None of us like being told we can’t do something or feeling limited when we know we’re capable of more. My broken wrist was a setback, forcing me to put a “pause” on my personal goals. As you know, this is not a good feeling.

Little did we know – the weeks to follow – March 2020 – had SO much more in store for us all!

After my surgery, I completed a free Strategy Session with the Results Fitness team at the recommendation of Heidi, my close friend and Results Fitness Warrior (if you belong to the RF community, you are a Warrior!).

Mentally, I was super eager to fast track the recovery process and get back to exercising, Though I wasn’t ready, it was time to explore options and have a plan in place so no time was wasted when my doctor gave the OK. Personally, knowing those next steps and what to expect felt important and reassuring. Yes, the broken wrist was a setback but was not the end all.

Like you, it feels hard to find a good “gym home”. You want to feel comfortable, you want to like the workouts, the people, the community, and you definitely want to know you personally matter and are being cared for.

I won’t sugar coat this. My biggest fear throughout this process was breaking another bone / getting hurt. That triggered even more anxiety thinking I’d never reach my personal goals. Before the wrist, I was excited and hopeful but at that moment, I was feeling depressed and eating my emotions. Having just lost my Mom sooner than expected, I was in a dark place.


WHEN THINGS STARTED CHANGING….

Here’s a quick breakdown: I met with the Results Fitness team, felt some relief about being able to start exercising again and in a matter of days, the world shut down and life as we know it was put on a three month hiatus. Even if I had been able, there was no going to the gym – the gym was closed.

Yes, this totally felt like another blow to my personal goals. You know this feeling- March completely derailed our lives, leaving us scrambling to pick up the pieces and try to figure out what was coming next.

As life slowly reverted back to a resemblance of “normal”, Heidi was back at Results Fitness, encouraging me to finally get started. As best friends often do, she reassured me this was exactly what I need to feel better and help bring me out of that dark place.

So, that’s exactly what I did! I reconnected with Results Fitness at the end of July and got started with the 30 Day Kickstart trial month the very next week.

I am happy to share, I have been going strong ever since! The 30 day trial was just the beginning and when it was time to decide if Results Fitness was the perfect fit, this decision was a no brainer.


ABOUT THOSE GOALS

My personal goal is reaching the weight listed on my license 😂. And, accomplishing this never felt more attainable and empowering! With the support of my family, I am pushed every day to stick to the commitment I made. My husband is a huge source of support and the voice of reason if I try making excuses first thing in the morning (he will literally kick me out of bed!). He keeps me focused by reminding me why I am doing this.

Is getting up every day at 4:30am for 5:30am class easy? Heck no it isn’t! But knowing that is the ONLY time in the day I can reserve for myself, I make it work.

My other form of support is Heidi, serving doubly as my friend and accountability buddy. Her “See you at 5:15am” texts means I’m not only responsible for showing up for myself, but her as well. This type of connection and accountability makes a huge difference in your mindset, and why having access to people and belonging to not just a “gym” but community matters.

….So, what about all those fears I had before starting?

….What was it like getting back to exercise while still in the process of rehabbing my wrist?

In a way, I would say the Results Fitness coaches took me under their wing. They took the time to understand my limitations and gave me modifications as needed to make sure there was always something I could do. This level of coaching and care helped me transition back to where I had left off in February. In the beginning, I needed more modifications and now, am happy to report I need less and less.

Like everyone else, my biggest struggle when first starting was learning the exercises, what they were called and the proper way to do each. You know how discouraging it can feel when trying anything new. This is especially true for exercise if you don’t have coaching, instruction and support.

But, that is what make Results Fitness DIFFERENT and UNIQUE!

The Results Fitness coaches want you to learn and understand how to exercise the right way so you don’t get hurt. Good form and quality movement is key. This level of coaching was something I hadn’t experienced at any other gym. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the RF coaches pay attention to detail and work the room to help everyone, even in large group classes.

In just three months, I have lost 35 lbs, am wearing jeans I couldn’t get into for years, clothes that fit months ago are now TOO big, and my original wedding ring now slides on and off my finger like a charm! I feel more energized, sleep better and know my biggest supporter, my Mom, is with me through this journey.
