I started KFIT just about four months ago. So I guess I am a newbie. I knew almost immediately this was the place for me. Fitness has always been a big part of my life, 25 years ago I was a personal trainer. Unfortunately, that fell to the side after getting married and having kids. But I continued to workout in one way or another, step aerobics, weight training, yoga, you name it I did it. My downward spiral started when I got frozen shoulder, it was so painful, I could barely lift my arm. Working out was out of the question. I avoided getting it looked at thinking it would just go away, it didn’t, and I suffered for months and gained over 20 pounds. Finally, I got it taken care of and joined a basic gym thinking in a few months I would be back to normal. Yeah…no! Apparently weight doesn’t come off very easy once you’re over 40. I kept at it for over a year with no change, so I quit, got discouraged and gained more weight.
I saw Kfit on Facebook after I had been wallowing in self pity for a few more months. I said to myself this was it, it’s right up the street, no more excuses, I need to pick myself up and gain control again and remember how much I loved working out and being in great shape. I am oh so glad I did! Best decision I have made in a long time. I have lost over 10 pounds, clothes that I haven’t worn in years fit me again and most importantly I feel great and that love of fitness I had back in my 20’s has returned. I also ran my first 5K! If you had told me a year ago I would be running a 5K this year, I would’ve thought you were crazy. Coaches are great! The women are like family. I always look forward to going to class. It’s just such a great place, I can’t express it enough.
