1. How long have you been at B-Fit, and why did you want to join?
I have been with B-Fit for just under 1 year. My wife Julie has been a member for 2-3 years now and she kept encouraging me to join. I had been on “exercise vacation” for about 5 years. Before, she and I worked out together. I finally decided to give it a try because I needed to become more active and regain an energy level that I had lost. I got to a point where I did not feel well the majority of the time and noticed how much better I felt after I had a physically active day. So after recognizing that, I finally decided it was time to make physical activity a priority and incorporate it into my work week.
2. What have you learned at B-Fit to help with your health and nutritional goals?
The B-Fit Leadership Team has a wealth of knowledge and are willing to share as much or as little as you want to know. The one thing that pops into my head that I have learned is the importance of hydration throughout the day and not just while working out. Another big lesson is eating in moderation.
3. What are your current and future nutrition goals?
My goal this year has been to reduce my sugar intake. For many years I have been “drinking” too many of my daily calories. I have not been doing it with Jim Beam or Bud Lite, but I have with Mountain Dew and sweet tea. My future goal is to eliminate these empty “drinking” calories altogether. It has been a challenge and will continue to be a personal struggle going forward.
4. What would you tell others about the training and community atmosphere at B-Fit?
Both the training and the community atmosphere at B-Fit are great. From day one they push you but don’t push you too hard. They encourage you enough to want to encourage yourself. And the people I work out with are fabulous. Everyone gets along great and are very supportive of each other. You won’t find a better group of people than the members of the B-Fit community.
5. What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?
My favorite exercise is jumping rope and pushing the sled as crazy as that sounds. My least favorite exercises (and don’t tell Bob) are stability ball leg curls and bridges. I just don’t like them.
