I wasn’t getting any younger, but I was feeling older than I should have been. I’ve always been active, but I felt like I could do more if I could shed some of the excess pounds I had accumulated through the years. I was diagnosed with arthritis in both knees in my 30’s. I weighed over 200 pounds and I’m only 5’9”.
I got an advertisement for Fit Soldiers in the mail and decided to give it a try. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Fit Soldiers offered something very different than anything I’d done before. I enjoy the variety of workouts, the other members, and the fact that the instructors push you to YOUR limits and not to someone else’s. I also like the focus on total fitness, both physical and nutritional.
As far as lifestyle, I still eat everything I like, with the exception fast foods. However I use portion control to keep my calories at a reasonable level. I have established a regimented weekly fitness routine that I have stuck with for over two years; two workouts at Fit Soldiers, two sessions on the tennis courts and two 45 minute sessions on my elliptical machine.
Since I started training at Fit Soldiers, I’ve dropped over 40 pounds. My jeans are now a 32 waist instead of 40. My cholesterol has improved. I have more stamina and I sleep better. I use a lot less Tylenol these days because my knee joints aren’t as stressed as they used to be hauling around all the extra weight.
I’ve been in the top 8 in my tennis league for over a year now. I can play 3 sets of tennis and still walk to the parking lot afterward. I’m faster on the court. When I play tennis, I own the third set! I’m still going strong when the other players are running out of steam. I lose matches because the other player is better than me, but not because they are in better shape than me.
