I began the Stronger for Life Program at Life Strength Fitness about four years ago. Although I considered myself a fairly active person at the time, I didn't have a set exercise regimen. I would occasionally work out at home with DVDs and enjoyed long walks with friends or our dog.
My husband had been working out with Andrew for about a year and a half when he suggested I join Life Strength Fitness, too. I knew there was something special about what Andrew was offering because my husband, who had not ever had a regular workout schedule, was now making it to 6:30 am workouts three days a week with no complaints!
Now that I had entered my 40's, I had daily lower back pain – often simply from how I had slept overnight. I was determined to finally do something to take care of myself. I was intrigued by a program that was focused on building strength and coordination and was tailored to meet my individual needs. When I went in for my first assessment with Andrew, I couldn't even do a bench press with an empty bar. The move itself felt awkward because I had never used a weight bar before. I am amazed that now I am able to bench press 120 pounds without difficulty. Andrew has created workouts with varied and challenging moves, and they are never boring. The other thing I really enjoy during my workouts at Life Strength Fitness is the camaraderie among other members. We offer each other support and genuine encouragement during workouts and it really feels like a “family.”
I love that through this program I have become stronger and have more confidence overall in what my body is capable of. Now my aches and pains are from the work I put in during my training sessions, and they are a welcome feeling as my body improves. I feel better physically and mentally than I have in years thanks to Life Strength Fitness.
