I’ve never been one to work with a trainer but as one of my 2014 new years’ resolutions was to “get in the best shape of my life” – I knew I needed to do something different.
Michele Krushinski is professional, supportive and encouraging. Over time, as I’ve gained strength and confidence, Michele continues to challenge me, keeping it fresh and fun. If you have any limitations, she’s awesome at accommodating with an alternative or a modification for the exercise. With the combo of the private sessions, nutritional guidance, and working out on my own, I am truly pleased with my progress and the results I’m achieving.
What brought you into BDx Fitness to start personal training?
I wanted to keep my New Year’s resolution this time and I saw the flyer for the women’s strength training class. I don’t like strength training. I hate it actually. But I know it is important and that I needed a kick in the butt along with the structure of a class.
What was your goal?
To look good naked! And to feel better about my body. I want to bring the gun show to town!
How are you tracking success?
I only judge by how my clothes fit and what I see in the mirror. And I see definition in my abs now! I do not weight myself. At a recent physical I learned I lost three inches and my bloodwork is improved. People are complimenting how I look! My energy has increased and I’m sleeping better.
How about nutrition?
I make better choices but I do not track my food intake and I still indulge. As long as I’m progressing, I’m ok with it being slow. Sometimes you have weeks where everything is on target and weeks when you can’t do it all. I learned not to beat myself up.
What is your plan to stay on track?
Step up with weight training on my own in addition to working with Michele. I also plan to work on my nutrition — after vacation.
