Sandra's Story - Member's Spotlight
“Growing up I was very athletic, active and adventurous. After the birth of my daughter I did not lose a lot of the weight and continued to gain a few pounds every year ... (yes, that’s how it happens). I knew from everything I read that carrying a lot of weight around my mid-section could be life threatening.
As time went on, I found it difficult to sleep because my joints ached and I could not find a comfortable position. I found everyday activities more and more challenging, making it harder to get through my day.
After a series of events in December of 2016 I decided to take my life back. I initially started with watching my food intake. I used whole foods – if I can’t pronounce it and don’t know what it is ... I don’t eat it!
In July of 2017 I then made the decision to take the next step, to get my life back. I joined BRAND FITNESS, a boutique Fitness Studio in Langley, BC. They had Small Group Classes, with instruction from Certified Personal Trainers. I felt comfortable there, it felt like home.
Becoming a Member at Brand Fitness has Changed my Life!
Except for a minor knee issue that goes back to my track and field days, I have no joint pain whatsoever. I am rounding the corner to 60 and am fit, happy and healthy. I now can buy clothes in the regular section and don’t dread shopping for them.
If you’re reading this be assured, YOU CAN do this! Take one step at a time. Set one tiny goal at a time. My goal was just 5 pounds a month. Even if I didn’t make my target I gave myself a pat on the back and said you can do this!
My advice to you is ... Find a fitness studio or trainer who cares. I was lucky to find both with BRAND FITNESS!! I received extra help and support in their BRANDFit50 Small Group Training program and Specialty Classes. -- it makes a world of difference to have the support and accountability for your actions. You are worth it, you owe it to yourself. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!”
