July 2019 I went to my first trial Bootcamp with my daughter in law Kathryn. In the month of August we participated in a few more Bootcamps throughout the month and we both decided it was just the atmosphere we were looking for to begin our fitness journey. All instructors were so encouraging and immediately made us feel a part of the FA family. We connected immediately with Rachel Riggieri Vincequere, an instructor in Grafton location, who was always so positive and encouraging.
September 2019 we joined FA and the Fall Body Challenge. This experience has been life changing for me to say the least. I was at a time in my life where it was time for me to put myself first. My weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar were all trending up at each annual physical. During the fall body challenge I was totally committed to losing weight and becoming a stronger fitter me as I approach my 60th birthday in April 2020. I attended Bootcamps each week and stayed on the nutrition plan provided and with the support of my team captain, Kim Sullivan McMahon, FA instructors and my family I was successful each week. At the end of the challenge I had lost 18.5 pounds, numerous inches throughout my body and all my numbers are now in the normal range. I also have so much more energy, sleep better, have less headaches and overall feel so much better physically and mentally. A good friend recently summed it up when she sent me this text :
“Kim, you look awesome but even better than you look is your mindset and positive attitude towards yourself. I am so proud of you. And I love how much you love it!!!!”
So for anyone considering joining FA or a Body Challenge I highly recommend going to a trial class and checking out the programs they offer. It will change your life-it sure has changed mine!
