I have never been a guy who goes to the gym to workout. I have just been active in my regular life to keep myself in good enough shape. Well, as time passed (and I got older), that "good enough" shape isn't really good enough anymore. I needed something, that trigger, to get me back working toward the physical condition that I could be happy with. Rachel, my wife, has been a long time member of Core Club, and talked to me about the 30 Day Challenge. I looked into it and decided to join. The past 30 days have been amazing! This was the kick-start that I needed. The support and encouragement from everyone at Core, especially Deb, Nicky, John and Janice, was been exactly what I needed to turn that corner and start to get back to where I want to be physically, and mentally as well. I tried BODYPUMP and loved it! (thanks to Janice) I fought my way through a TRX class and was amazed at the challenge. I took the BALListic class and could not believe how much you can sweat beating a ball with drum sticks (don't knock it till you try it)! STRONG took the last of my energy on a Friday night, and was fantastic! Then I tried RPM, I'm a biker, I thought spinning, right up my ally. Emily kicked my butt! I could not, and would not have started this journey without (of course the support of my wife) and the encouragement and support from everyone at Core!
