Many of my friends think I’m crazy, but every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I get up at 5:15am (or actually roll out of bed) get dressed, and head out to Core Strong Fitness for TRX team camps. TRX was introduced to me by my good friend Mark Campbell. I attended my first class at the beginning of June 2015, and it didn’t take long before I was HOOKED! This form of exercise with his amazing coaching and true passion to help people surpass their fitness/wellness goals has been life changing for me and my family. At first, it was just me. I was going to classes and just loved the atmosphere. Then…it happened! I started getting stronger and doing things that I had NEVER done before in my life. I remember the first time I did a REAL push up with no modifications, and then I did another, and another. I almost cried! Even when I did sports in high school I couldn’t do a push up! That was just the beginning of the changes my body was able to do through the strength I was gaining from TRX class. Now, it’s rubbing off on my family. Slowly our diet has been changing, we are becoming more active as a unit, and we are watching TV a whole lot less.
Today was Day 1…AGAIN! I have been going to the TRX team camps version since August 2015. It’s a 6 week cycle of some awesome (and hard…let’s be honest, some are really hard) exercises. If you check out my friend Mark’s facebook page, you’ll better see what I’m talking about.
Today as I start the team camps again, I decided to make a commitment to work harder with my family. Work on our diet even more, and do more activities outside then we ever have. I’m excited to share this, and if you need more support on your wellness journey, whether you are a momma or not, just contact me and we will work together to help you.
Here is one of my before/after photos. This one was back in February. I’m planning another soon as I come up on my 1 year with TRX. These are also two of my supporters! Austin, who is in class with me and we have fun giving each other a hard time, and Stephanie, who is Mark’s wife and is truly an inspiration to me to keep going. The picture was taken after we completed the Fight for Air Climb for the American Lung Association. Over 40 flights of stairs!
What are some accomplishments and goals that you have for yourself and your family in their health journey? Let’s work together to achieve them!
