Happy Saturday, friends!
We are so proud of each of you for working so hard this December! You are off to a great start and are truly pushing yourself to finish 2016 strong! Today, we are excited to introduce to you our December Client Spotlight- Krista McLean! Krista is mother of three beautiful children, and homes schools these three miracles! Krista started at TransFit 9 months ago by committing to getting in her strength sessions 2-3 times a week at 5:30am at TransFit and she has seen awesome results! Krista is dedicated in the TransFit studio and at home and gives 110% to everything she does! We are so proud of her progress this year and we are excited to another great year of helping her reach her goals in 2017! Keep living transformed beautiful lady! We are so proud of you!
My journey to a healthier lifestyle began sometime between baby #2 and baby #3. I wanted to work off those extra pounds gained, and once pregnant again, I wanted to stay in shape to make labor and recovery a little easier. I worked out a few days a week after, but really began making my health a priority this past spring. I joined TransFit in April and have loved every session.
As a homeschool mom of 3, 5:30am has proven to be the best time for me to workout. I go to 2-3 TF sessions a week and do the running group. I am also running on the days that I am not scheduled at TF. I have seen so many changes from my body to my energy levels! The running has been my biggest challenge. I would much rather work on strength exercises but cardio is important as well. I have always wanted to be a ‘runner’ and Lisa’s sessions have shown me that I can do it. No matter how slow or how far I have to go, I can do it. I began TransFit with struggling to run one mile and have worked up to running 5 miles just last Sunday! I came home that evening and signed for the Chick-fil-a Half Marathon in April. One of my goals has always been to run a half before I am 40, and I am going to make it happen.
Because I am home with my children, I want to have the energy required to be with them, and I want to instill in them a healthy lifestyle. I also want them to know that we exercise for our hearts, because God gave us these bodies, and to be good stewards of that responsibility. I am not the best but we try to eat more vegetables now than before and we eat at home more. I eat a salad for lunch every day and strive for 80 oz. of water each day. I still have a love for pasta, bread, and Dr. Pepper but am trying each day to cut back on all of those things!
All of the ladies at TransFit have been so encouraging in helping me reach my goals. Caroline is my overall cheerleader always telling me, “Yes you can!” Lisa is an awesome running coach with lots of tips and tricks! Katie and Shelley are great running partners who are always smiling not matter what face I may be making at the time! I could not do any of this without them and am so thankful to be able to workout alongside all of them!
