1. How did you find out about B-Fit?Through my massage therapist Jennifer Murphy, who then became my Pilates instructor and worked out of the B-Fit gym, and she introduced me to Beverly. I needed help with my lower back issues, mostly due to a weak core, and too much weight.2. What have you learned by being at B-Fit about health and nutrition?That I am accountable for me, meaning it is up to me what I eat and it is up to me what I do physically. Making more healthier decisions is the key and to learn the effects of what, when, and how much you eat and find a process that has worked for me.3. What results have you seen as a result of the changes you have made?First and foremost, I just feel better all over, body and mind, less tired and healthier. My core strength is much greater, so much less lower back problems. A good amount of weight loss due to both diet change and the fitness plan I am on, about 40 lbs since I started this in early March of 2020.4. What are your current/future goals regarding health and fitness?The first goal is to learn what I need to do to get relief for my lower back by building up my core strength, and then maintain that from here on out, and that plan is currently in progress. Next is to lose another 30 lbs to get down to around 180 lbs and reduce my overall body fat. While all of that is going on, I retrain myself to make these healthy choices a habit so I can maintain good health as I get older and move into the next phases of my life and enjoy them.5. What would you tell others about the training/ community atmosphere at B-Fit?I would have to say the best thing I see is how friendly and supportive the folks at B-Fit are and how much encouragement they always give. They are very knowledgeable in their field, they give good advice, and explain how these things work and how they are beneficial to your good health.Little things are very important; they listen to what I say and treat you with respect, never talk at you but to you, and for me they explain the mechanics of the exercises I am doing, which is important to me to understand what and why I am doing something. That was something I mentioned in our initial conversation, and Beverly listened.I don’t feel judged or awkward when I go there; it’s a happy place, and I always feel good when I go, even on those days I think that I am just not into it.6. Do you have a favorite and least favorite exercise and if so what are they and why?
No, not really, there are exercises that are more challenging than others, and it is really rewarding to get good at them and advance in the levels of difficulty and showing improvement. I like it when new exercises are introduced, or changes to current exercises that make them more of a challenge.Stretching is tedious, but very necessary. It’s hard to see the day to day progress but over time the results are significant. I enjoy the feeling and accomplishment of a good hard workout.
