I’ve had a great time once or twice in the past year showing up at Kathryn’s garage and getting to work out with Kathryn and Stephanie. I’ve always admired their strength, determination, and joy in exercise. I was immediately drawn to their enthusiasm and heartfelt encouragement. When I learned they were starting their own business, Four Fit, it made perfect sense and I wanted to be a part of it.
I admit… I hemmed and hawed over actually signing up as the barriers felt high. Life has had some nasty twists lately and I wondered if this was the right time to fully commit to something that could potentially be life changing when so much of my other world was falling apart. In the end, I had a heart to heart with Kathryn who left the decision completely up to me, but she was hugely encouraging that I could do this.
All my life, exercise has been a big part of my life. I love to run, swim, walk, do yoga, and have taken a smorgasbord of classes at my local YMCA. In general, I’ve felt physically fit most of my life so I didn’t need to be convinced that life is better when exercise is a part of it. However, since having my three children and my age creeping higher, my good ol’ formula for health wasn’t working like it had previously. When I was debating about whether to participate in Four Fit’s first boot camp, Kathryn and Stephanie seemed to say this would be different than other things I’ve done. I didn’t really believe them, but I decided to give it a shot.
These last six weeks have surpassed my expectations. I’ve had a great time, enjoying the company of other women, trying new things that I didn’t think I could do, getting up early and sleeping hard after these workouts, and my body has started to change. Kathryn and Stephanie have encouraged each of us individually and as a whole throughout the experience and it’s been really good for my heart and soul to try something new and feel successful. It’s very exciting to feel stronger and more confident. My goals were not immense, but they were significant to me and it’s very empowering to see some of them met and all of them with some progress in the direction I was hoping.
If you’ve been thinking about trying Four Fit’s Boot Camp, I’d encourage you to go for it! We laugh a lot and cheer each other on and are proud of ourselves and each other. If your goals are small or large, you’re sure to have a great time moving towards them. Kathryn and Stephanie are wonderful coaches and great encouragers; they make you work hard, but in a way that’s fun and you leave proud you came and finished the workout. Come on out and join us!
