I have been a member of the True Conditioning family almost from the day they opened their doors. I can remember my first time walking through the doors of TC, having bought the initial Groupon they were offering. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about this TRX thing, but I needed to change up my workout routine so I though I’d give it a go! Apart from being extremely impressed with the the studio, I was very impressed with the TRX system, and of course, the professionalism and knowledge of Sophie and Ryan.
After a few months of taking part in the group classes, I decided to take my fitness journey to the next level and start personal training with Sophie. Sophie has the ability to be able to push me to go to the next level, and she does so basing it on her knowledge of me and my goals, not only is she a great trainer, she is a great listener and a great encourager.
I decided to get more focused and more serious about my health and nutrition, so January of this year (2017), specifically January 3, I made the commitment to make healthier nutritional and activity choices.
I had spent the previous 18 months waffling and wandering, not ready to commit to anything, and lacking motivation to make some life changing and life challenging changes.
I made the decision that I was going to make 2017 the year of living courageously and saying YES, celebrating my journey towards my 60th birthday in October. I have trained consistently this past year with Sophie and have also reevaluated and changed my relationship with food.
I stepped up to the Health and Wellness challenge in the Spring and haven’t looked back! I will be joining the next Health and Wellness Challenge in October. Even though I will be travelling all of October, and will not be physically at TC, I am definitely tethered to this group, to this TC family and plan to connect via Social Media along my journey and prove to myself that the healthy nutrition and exercise habits that I have come to embrace I can continue to embrace no matter where I am.
If you are reading this and contemplating trying out a TRX class, contemplating working out with Sophie one one on, contemplating joining the Health and Wellness Challenge, know this for sure, you get as much out of it as you are willing to put into it. Sophie will guide you, encourage you, challenge you, shepherd you through the changes you seek, as long as you are ready, willing and able to commit to change. Go for it, what have you got to lose?
Thank you Sophie for your encouragement, guidance, and friendship over the past few years!
