For me, cardio and running have not progressed quite as easily. Normally I would use that as an excuse to not do it or stop coming to class but KFIT has shown me that it’s totally fine to not be good at everything. Sometimes I give 110% and can barely drive home, some days I give 50% because my body just won’t cooperate, and to be honest some days I give 5% and just go for the social hour because mental health is important too : )
The family atmosphere of the gym is really the most important to me. I have made some great friends here that go beyond the walls of KFIT. Having friends to push you through that last 400m run, make sure you show up to class, and text about macros because you just unbuttoned your jeans in a meeting makes a huge difference in accountability and motivation for me. These crazy ladies have somehow convinced me to run multiple 5Ks, a 5 MILE, the ruckus, and compete in the throwdowns (and win one!).
These are all things I would never do without this support group. Also, having a coach that cares enough to check on you when you’re out or can tell you’re having an off day and let you know she’s there for you if you need it (I’m looking at you Stormy Weathers!) is a game changer. How many gyms can say they have everything from nutrition counseling, physical therapy, massage therapy, an amazing hair stylist, AND a whole group of bad-ass coaches? Thank you Kerrie for building this epic community. KFIT truly is my happy place and I can’t picture my life without it.
