Once upon a time (a little over 2 years ago) my friend convinced me to come to a fitness group, run out of a garage. “Come” she said, “It will be fun” she said. And on that first day I thought I might actually die, but I didn’t. I got a massive buzz from surviving. So I went back, and then I kept going back.
I kept going back so often that now it feels like home. Since the garage days, things have changed, Em has changed and so have I.
Now we have the studio, it’s like my second home. It’s a place of pain, but it’s a place that I can’t live without. Em has dragged me, often kicking and screaming (look, let’s be honest, often swearing) through the last year. We’ve come a long way from the backwards crab crawl incident at the beach (that’s a long story) and now I feel confident and like I actually know what I’m doing. Coming to the studio is a usual part of my week, and being part of the EMpower Fitness and Nutrition family is something I truly appreciate.
Em as a coach is one of my most appreciated resources. She is approachable and always around to consult with (and to keep you honest). Most of all she is supportive and your goals are hers. She always notices when you improve, she is always encouraging you try something new, something harder, to push further toward your goals.
I guess the last thing I want to say is that if you’ve ever considered joining a gym, but you’re scared or you feel embarrassed, come and join us at EMpower Fitness and Nutrition. You won’t regret it; you will feel welcome, and Em will have a way to make it do-able for you.
Congratulations Em, on coming so far. Thank you for being a truly inspiring person.
