Where to start? There is so much to be said. Everyday the girls are putting forth an effort and accomplishing things they never thought possible. Their lifestyles are changing outside of the gym and that is part of what will keep them going after our 12 weeks together. We all wish this could go on forever, we are having so much fun, sometimes maybe tooooo much, but laughter is good for the soul!!!!
The trainers and I talk about the contestants objectively, verbalizing what we think of individual gains, who has better mobility, improved endurance…. and even who looks for excuses….. The girls as well as anyone else who knows me, knows that I am a straight shooter. Don’t get me wrong all the girls are working VERY hard, some are just not as eager to push it to the next level.
Our girls always have a smile on the faces when they walk in the door, then it is time to get down to business, sometimes two and three times a day. They have done training sessions and two classes in the same day before (their choice). The high fives continue, and the jobs well done. They really support and encourage each other. They know it’s a competition, but they truly care about each other’s successes. They are a great bunch of women and I am truly glad to have met them and to have the opportunity to help make a difference in their lives.
