My story is probably pretty similar to a lot of other peoples’ stories; my dedication to fitness was all over the map so there were periods where I was in pretty good shape, periods where I wasn’t, and also, unfortunately, periods where I REALLY wasn’t. I’d be committed to a program, then not so much, and my pants and my belt would respond to that commitment (or lack thereof) accordingly.
About two years ago, after getting back into average shape (yet again), I started slipping backwards (yet again). I wanted something more sustainable, so I sampled a few different gyms in Regina, looking for a “good fit”. I wasn’t even sure what a “good fit” meant, but I figured I’d recognize it when I found it.
I discovered that while the quality of the program is definitely important, being able to do that program consistently is important too. The yoyo-ing back and forth was tough on both my body and my brain so finally finding a place that makes me work hard and makes it easy to come back to day in and day out … that’s what makes LG a “good fit” for me. My pants and my belt agree with this assessment.
There’s still work to do, but, perhaps unsurprisingly, the “gainz” in strength, endurance, and general physical health have fueled positive changes in personal, professional, and other aspects of my life as well. I feel the best I’ve ever been on the volleyball court and on the bike path, but also in the classroom and out with friends too.
This program works (as I’m sure a lot of other programs do), but Dillon and all the members of the 6:00 a.m. crew help keep me accountable and, more importantly, help me be consistent. As I approach my two-year anniversary at LG, I can say with all certainty that while I’m the oldest I’ve ever been, I’m also in the best shape of my life. I feel fortunate to have found my “good fit” … thanks LG!
