I Remember My First Day at Fit Club
Where do I begin
I have been active my entire life
Ran 2 marathons in my younger years
Weight has always been an issue!
In 1996 I married my best friend and we have been together 26 years
In 1997 I was pregnant with my first child
It became a nightmare when I delivered my son and he passed away
And the weight stayed with me
Food was comfort
We were told not to have children and against all odds, we were blessed with 2 girls
1 in 1999
1 in 2000
Pregnancies were close together and the weight stayed I was embarrassed to be 268 pounds.
Joined a gym so our family could go and be active
The weight stayed the same
In 2005 we were hit with some shocking news that ripped my heart into pieces
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis
The thoughts that ran through my head were. .....
OMG going to end up in a wheelchair with a 5-year-old and a 4-year-old
I was devastated, to say the least
After several doctors appointments and a tonne of medication, I am doing well
I remember my first day at Fit Club
I drove by it several times and thought I should try it
And then drove by again
But this time I stopped to ask questions...and before I knew it I was coming for my first class
And the as Jenn says...I drank the Kool-aid and have been hooked ever since
I started doing 3 classes a week
Then progressed to 5 and now I do at least 7 to 8 classes a week.
With the pandemic, things certainly changed
It was a tough time working in an essential service place and not knowing what was going to happen.
I tried the virtuals but just couldn't get into them.
So when the gym opened I was so excited and started back.
I changed careers in 2021 left a company after nearly 20 years and joined a new place!
I can't even begin to think of all the people I have met through the gym
Some have become very important in my life. Christine Omeniuk is the best workout partner I could have. She is my saviour
She sees me struggling and is there to help me. She convinced me to try the belly Burn 9.0 and it was such an amazing experience
To all of you...u make getting up in the morning worth it. Thanks for the outpouring of support
You are all my heroes
To family thanks for believing in me
Your support means the world to me
And to the coaches of Fit Club
You truly are a tremendous team
Jenn your early morning energy is contagious and u just make working out fun
Thank you for your help when I need it
And to those of u thinking about joining a gym
If u have limitations and feel u wouldn't fit in
Just give it a try u might be surprised at what u can do.
