|Before and after pictures of Christine Porter show the difference an Elevate Fitness workout program can make.|
Back in June, I just happened to see an ad on Facebook for a gym just down the road from my house. They were offering 10-day Summer Fitness Blasts on Monday through Thursday from 6-6:30 a.m. What a perfect time for this busy mom … get up early, go workout and be back before my kids even wake up.
I’m a full-time mom of two young boys, ages 3 and 4 ½, and some very active dogs (I’m a part-time dog trainer, too). I decided it was time to stop making excuses and give myself a wonderful birthday present and get back into working out. Why not, right?
I committed to do the first 10-day session with the hope of doing all five sessions. And I did just that -- rain or shine, sore or tired -- didn’t matter. I showed up every morning, ready to work my butt off and enjoy my time away from home.
I didn’t miss a single day, and I have the staff at Elevate Fitness to thank for motivating me to get out of bed and get moving.
Beyond the Summer Fitness Blast sessions, I wanted more, and so I’ve continued working out at Elevate -- sessions with Gonzalo and group classes when my hubby is home to watch my kids. I’m absolutely addicted to the way the trainers at Elevate teach and push you to do more than you think you can… but in a very good way.
Since I started working out at Elevate, I’ve lost about 10 pounds, dropped two pant sizes, and gained some good muscle. I’ve never felt so strong, especially my legs and core. But I’m not done yet. I still have more work to do -- and I can’t wait to do it all.
And this from Elevate Fitness owner Paul David:
Christine really impressed us when she joined our 10-Day Blasts. She showed up early each time, put in the work, and stayed later to get extra work done. The 10-day blasts were designed for those with a busy schedule -- a 30-minute Total Body workout using kettlebells and free weights twice a week and Metabolic training the other two times per week.
Core Training was included each time. Christine responded really well to the short blasts. It was very gratifying to watch her body literally lean out and change weekly -- all with just 30 minutes four times a week. After a summer of doing this, she decided to increase her workouts and started training with Coach Gonzalo and her strength and conditioning levels improved that much more.
It's been fun training Christine and watching her stay committed to getting herself not just healthy but in really top condition. Stay Lean, Christine. You've been Elevated!
