When someone’s life is transformed, it can really be a difference maker far beyond the number on the scale.
Karen is always the first to take the newbies under her wing and encourage struggling veterans and is a source of inspiration to everyone around her ..
I will let Karen tell you the rest …..
Where did you grow up? I was born in Baltimore, Maryland but moved to South Tampa when I was 10. We downsized and moved to Tierra Verde 8 months ago
How long have you been doing a Fitness St Pete Group Personal Training Program and why did you start? This is my fourth week. I joined a few days before the 21Day Summer Shape Program began. I kept seeing the ads and testimonials pop up on my Facebook feed and I’d save them for “future” reference. I was intrigued that it focused on a more mature age group and is held literally across the street from where I live. For the past year, I had been inconsistent at best with eating healthy and exercise. Additionally, my drinking increased, (mostly red wine), over all those months as I grieved my brother’s unexpected passing and transitioned through house moves, my mother’s needs, husbands job change, and all that life threw at me. I gained 15lbs through it all and just felt terrible and disappointed in myself. Finally, I decided it was time to take care of ME so I picked up the phone, spoke to Dianne and signed up on the spot. She “had me at hello” then and will have me for the next 12 months, too, as I just renewed my membership to continue on.
What kinds of results have you achieved so far? I lost 7lbs in the first 3 weeks and can tell some inches, too, by the way I am fitting better in some of my clothes.
Hobbies/Interests outside of camp? Boating, football, creative activities, family and friend time.
What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals? Don’t put it off! Each day that you do, it can take years off of your life. I am doing this because I want to add years into my life!
