This month’s member of the month is Ashley Diekamp! Ashley has been a member at PFP for the last 3 years (our longest member!) and is well deserving of the member of the month honor. Over the last month she has decided to fully dedicate herself to our success principles and has began to reap the benefits like never before! She has also started the process of giving up smoking and is dedicated to making that change in her life as well! We are so proud of her! Here is her story:
- Why did you come to Pursuit Fitness? What were you looking for?
I actually came because my friend persuaded me to try it out but starting isn’t the same as staying 🙂 . I found a workout that seemed to hit every single muscle in my body (considering I couldn’t walk right for a week after that first day) and I didn’t have to spend hours in the gym. Also, being held accountable for showing up helps keep you going.
- What has your experience at Pursuit Fitness been like since you joined?
For as long as I’ve been with PFP I have watched the business grow and have seen many people have amazing results. I’ve seen new people join who seem to be a little reluctant to try for that heavier weight or go for level 3, transform into workout beasts. It’s nice to see that confidence and motivation being built into people. I wouldn’t have brought the majority of my family if I thought any different.
- What do you enjoy most about your experience at Pursuit Fitness?
The members! The coaches are great too but the people we workout with make it fun. There are so many people that I’ve met through Pursuit that I now consider friends. Of course a little “friendly” competition is also quite enjoyable (guys never liked to be out-lifted by a girl… aka…me)
- What are the biggest personal achievements you have experienced after joining Pursuit Fitness?
I didn’t really have any goals when I started, or really not any until a few months ago. I continued to workout because I could tell the changes in my body were positive. The strength I gained alone was enough to keep me going (except now instead of being the go to person for getting things off of high shelves, I am also the go to person for moving heavy crap…yeah me) But I would say, right now I set my sights on losing weight and dropped about 15lbs in the past 2 months. Rub it in all you want, but I’ve finally embraced the high protein low carb diet that PFP coaches their members to live out…and the results are amazing! I have always dedicated myself to the workouts and given 100% in the gym but as soon as I incorporated the rest of what PFP teaches, my body has totally transformed! (actually I’m a little p*$$ed considering the cute dress I just got now hangs on me like a tent, know any good tailors?)
- What are your goals for the future?
I would like to see if I can drop 8 more pounds… I know it will be harder and take more time than this first 15, but I’m up for the challenge!
Thank you PFP!
Congratulations Ashley Diekamp on all your amazing accomplishments! Pursuit Fitness & Performance is so proud of your success and we appreciate your loyalty! Keep it up!
