The moment I might Jean, I liked her. She asked several questions and was such a sponge. She was determined to make some changes and boy did she do just that. She applied everything we spoke about and she transformed her body and MIND in a very short period of time. She looked great when she came to Get A Grip, but now she has a certain glow to her now and looks amazing! She works hard every time she comes in the doors and it shows.
People like Jean are why I love what I do; she took the tools I can offer and APPLIED them! The only thing is she blew it out of the water! She exceeded past my expectations and is still going strong. I’m very proud of her and love having her as part of the Get A Grip Family!
Here is her story…
I came across Get A Grip one day by accident. It was one of the best accidents that happen to me.
Like just about every mom my days are usually all about my kids and their schedule. Trying to fit in everything and not leaving much time for myself.
One day while I was taking my daughter somewhere I came across Get A Grip. I saw the studio and decided to go in and find out about it. I thought it sounded good but just didn’t know if I could fit it in my schedule, especially with summer being just around the corner at that time. So I put it on the back burner.
Exercise has always been an important part of my life. Through the years I belonged to several gyms, exercise programs and even had trainers. However, it wasn’t until the end of last September that I felt like I was in a rut and wanted to do something for myself. I decided it was time to follow up with Get A Grip. It was the best thing I could have done.
Once I became a member Carrie and I put together a plan based on my goals. Within three months I met my goals. I went down two dress sizes and reached my goal weight. I was very excited and felt great. At first after those three months I was so fixed on a certain number on the scale. Once again with Carrie’s help I realized that number on the scale is not the most important thing. Through Carrie and fellow campers I have come to understand that there is a bigger picture. That picture being…doing what I can to live a healthy lifestyle. Every day I am trying to focus on keeping things simple, making better choices on what is healthy for my body as well as my mind. Carrie also taught me to set one or two smaller goals focus on them and to “not bite off more than I can chew”. This is a great way for me to keep the stress level down.
What I love about Get A Grip is not only the great workouts but also all the incredible coaching and positive motivation. The fellow campers are awesome as well. I have made some terrific new friends and I look forward to seeing them at boot camp. When Carrie asked me to share my story as a Spotlight I was really excited. I was excited not just to share my great results, or to tell you that I think Carrie is an awesome trainer who totally cares about her clients, but because I know there are others out there like me, who may think I don’t have the time or energy for a program like this. That was what I thought, but now I build my schedule around my workout time. It is something you can do for yourself and it will make you happy that you are doing it and that will flow into everything you do.
What a Beautiful Picture of Jean and Her Family!
