Member Spotlight: Diane G
The Ready To Reclaim Her Body Executive
“I am losing inches, gaining muscle; my body looks and feels so much better ! My stamina has increased and I am able to exercise without hurting myself which feels great”
Diane started with us for our Total Body Transformation Challenge back in January on a mission to get herself healthy.
Overweight , sedentary for years and living in a body with a variety of injuries and neck and back issues, she wasn’t sure a group program was for her. After she came to check out our group personal training camp in Old NE and talked to some of our members, she immediately signed up.
She came in afraid of getting injured as had happened in past attempts at “getting back into shape” but we knew
we had the solution she needed! She came in committed, trusted the process and has fast become one of our group favorites.
When I say committed, I mean REALLY committed. She has come in the rain and while in the middle of a move. Not only that, she hits her camp on the way home from her job in North Tampa to her home on Tierra Verde and frequently makes the drive from Tierra Verde to our North Shore Location to get in an extra workout on Saturdays! Oh, and did I mention, she frequently travels out of state for work?

How has your program compared with your expectations?I was very skeptical that this would work for me, so I have been very pleased.
Please describe how your Fitness St Pete Boot Camp I Tierra Verde Fitness Group Fitness Program has specifically helped you achieve success with your fitness level. While I have a long way to go still, I am confident and improving myself regularly, which is not something a lot of 55 year olds can say.
Tell us an interesting or unusual fact about yourself. I am a middle child (4 of 6), however, I was the baby for over 4 years, and was the de facto oldest for the last three children born.
What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals? If not now, then when? Just showing up is ¾ of the work the rest will follow.
