I have never been in good shape. I did not pay attention to my physical condition. It just was not a priority. I did not play sports in high school and never had a consistent workout or active routine either. I smoked a pack a day for 10 years and drank Mt. Dew and Coke by the six packs. I stopped smoking when my wife and I found out she was pregnant. I quit cold turkey, but replaced the habit with food. The combination of over-eating, a stressful job, and lack of physical activity was not good. I decided I needed to get out and move around.
I signed up for a local inline hockey recreational team. I found out quick how out of shape I was! Plus trying to learn a sport at the age of 33 was not easy. I played for a few years and thought I was getting in shape, but eventually learned I was not getting the results I wanted. I finally came to the conclusion that I was not happy being what my doctor called OBESE. It was time to make a change.
I saw a Fit Soldiers sign at the indoor soccer arena my son plays at and decided it could not hurt to give it a try! I joined initially hoping that a group work out would keep me motivated, and it has! I like that everybody is working on a fit lifestyle. A workout here is a great stress reducer, clears my mind, and leaves me wanting to do it again the next day. The best part about Fit Soldiers is how the instructors keep me motivated and push me farther, not letting me give up and not letting me slack. This has helped me progress more than I thought was possible.
Since joining, I have changed a lot. I ride my bike on days I don’t work out at Fit Soldiers. I still play rec. hockey 2 times a week, and have recently started the boxing classes offered. The biggest change I have made is to my diet! I pay attention to what I eat. No more fast food 2-3 times a day. I prepare meals and snacks and plan ahead. These are all skills I have learned at Fit Soldiers. No more iced tea. No more soda. I drink water all day long! I have lost 40 lbs. I went from wearing size 38 and 40 pants to wearing size 34 and 36 pants. I want to continue to lose weight and am going to keep working on this.
I am getting faster stronger and leaner. I feel this has also helped me on the hockey rink (now if I could just learn to skate better!)
