Susan, a Forever Fitness client, comes to the 40+ Fitness Podcast to share her success story.
Susan reflects on her decision to work on her health and fitness when she turned 43. She started by walking during her daughter's practiced volleyball. She progressed from that to a group class after a friend won a free boot camp program and gave it to her. She discovered that being in a community made doing the exercise much easier.
When she began focusing on weight lifting, she noticed how seeing others working hard gave her motivation to push herself. She joined Forever Fitness Personal Training when she was looking to accelerate her progress. She didn't always like the recommendations but she saw the results. Having a coach motivated her to push on.
Having a thyroid issue has always made it easy for her to gain weight. Through managing her food and exercise, she managed to lose 40 lbs. Her doctor was very impressed. Her blood work looks much better and her need for thyroid meds has reduced.
