Well the day has finally come! I am gonna get off this fat ass and DO something about it.
After lying in bed a couple nights ago; thinking about my gymphobia. I imagined my fear being lessened if gyms had short instructional videos on every machine; showing proper form and function. A cheat for those newbies who feel anxiety or are mentally not ready for a trainer. I fell asleep thinking maybe if I pitched it to the gym I am a member of, I would be inspired to go.
The next morning I woke up, and the first thing on my Facebook feed was a status from Cheyenne Fit Body Gym; advertising a 6 week Body Transformation challenge, with a satisfaction guarantee. And for a few quick responders, the rate would be nearly half of their normal pricing. Three easy payments of $67.00 and a positive attitude, and I could be on the path to the body I have always wanted.
I decided to email about the offer, and set up a consultation with owner Sara Goossen. My motivation was amplified by the fact my house is only four blocks away.
I decided to check out the Fit Body Bootcamp website. A short testimonial video gives a glimpse of some of the activities that are part of the Fit Body Boot camp. Each session is only thirty minutes long, and boasts of maximum fat burn in minimum time.
Sara was in a consultation when I came in for my appointment. The woman she was meeting with was showing some nervousness about starting the program. Sara commiserated with her, and encouraged her that in a month from now, she will not be the same woman. I couldn’t see this womans’ face, but I can imagine her brain might have been rolling it’s eyes. It’s hard to see a positive future when focused on all the things you may not like about yourself. I can already tell that Sara is not the type of instructor to let people beat up on themselves, instead she turns it around and encourages a positive outlook.
My consultation with Sara was short but inspirational. She has a great attitude and a positive sense of humor. We discussed my fitness goals, and the goals of the program. Next, we got down to the business of my current body stats. I was weighed; measured, and tested for arm strength. A pretty simple procedure overall (that is if you can get over reading your weight on a scale.) To which Sara responded, “This will be the last time you see these numbers.”
I was invited to begin today or tomorrow if I so choose. I plan to start tomorrow.
Sara has a goal of reaching 5,000 Cheyenne residents through this program. To support her goal I hope you join me as I chronicle this experience. For those who have followed my recent blogs, they have been pretty depressing. I hope to remedy that with this new action, and I hope you find inspiration with me as I chart unknown territories of my journey to a better body. Stay tuned!
