Fit Friday: Before and After

Hope you all are having a Fabulous Fit Friday! 

I want to share this little testimonial with you all. This is my mom, Carol about a year ago she began coming to my Fitness Kickboxing and Circuit Training classes. She has been super consistent with attending classes, and boy has it paid off!

There was no real goal to begin with, but seeing how the regular exercise and variety of workouts really began to transform her body, she kept going and has never felt better!

Carol Before:

Here's what she had to say:
This is me.  Determined to age gracefully and discouraged by 10 pounds I added with menopause.  I decided to accept it because it didn't seem to matter what I ate or didn't eat, I couldn't lose the weight.  I have always been active and continued to walk, ride my bike and take yoga at least 3 times a week.
When Margaux began teaching at Farley's, I tried kickboxing and was surprised I liked it!  She began teaching circuit training 3 times a week so I took those classes too.  The workouts are so well rounded ( hitting all the muscle groups, warm up and cool down), they are always fresh and fun!   My body started changing.

I am right where I want to be.  Margaux is a creative and energetic teacher, often going through the circuits just like we do.   I know I need to keep up my workouts, it is the consistency that makes a difference to me.  Margaux is my inspiration, I do the work, though!
Carol After:

Keep up the great work, Carol!
If you take anything away from this, I hope its the idea of consistency! Being consistent and staying on track is the only way to stay on top of your fitness, whether you have goals to achieve or are just trying to maintain. 

Let this "before and after" leave you with some motivation to either start a new routine or stick with one that is working for you now! 

Do you have a good "before and after" story? If so, please share!
