"My family told me they were worried about me when I hit 250 lbs. They wanted me to be around a long time..."

My name is Kathleen and I am 55 years old. I’ve been happily married to my husband for 30 years and we have two wonderful sons (ages 26 and 22). Last year when I hit 250 pounds, they were worried and told me that they wanted me to be around for a long time. Of course, that is what I want too but hearing it from them made it “real”. Well the old saying, “you get what you pay for” is really true. I could join a gym and pay $10.00 a month but I would be on my own. I wouldn’t have anyone tailoring an exercise program to suit my specific needs. I wouldn’t have anyone watching out for me and making sure I am using proper form while working out so that I don’t get injured. I feel like I have ownership in Pursuit Fitness. This is my personal gym and I have my own coach whom I can contact anytime I need advice. I typically work out Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays at 6:00 am. No one has to push me to go. I honestly enjoy it and love how it makes me feel. I look forward to working out those days. The other members are so supportive and fun to be around. The challenges are great because they take you out of your comfort zone and really make you focus on your goal for a certain time frame. You sure learn a lot about what you can accomplish when you are eating the right foods to fuel your workouts. A big thank you to Ryan, Adam, Sarah, Joe, & Michelle for providing me with such an awesome opportunity. I’ve accomplished a lot but I still have more work to do. This is a new way of living for me. I feel healthier, stronger, more confident and happier because I work out at Pursuit Fitness. I wish the same for all of you.
