Happy Saturday, friends!
Today, we want to introduce you to one of our sweet clients and share her inspiring story with you! Hannie Lanclos lights up the room with her contagious joy and beautiful smile! Her hard work, determination, and positive attitude, even through adversity, are an encouragement and inspiration to us! Hannie has made an amazing transformation over the past few months at TransFit! Hanna exercises 2-3 times a week at TransFit with Trainer Katie Lord! We are so proud of all she has accomplished so far, and we are amazed at how God has worked in Hannie’s life! We are excited to share her story with you today! Congrats Hannie - keep living transformed!
My mom, sister, and I were in a terrible car accident on the way to school March 2, 2016. I had multiple injuries, including a torn aorta, a C-2 spine fracture, a shattered pelvis, kidney and liver lacerations, brain bleeds, and a collapsed lung. I spent 21 days total in the ICU at Egelston and on the rehabilitation floor at Scottish Rite and came home in a wheelchair, wearing a halo- brace for my broken neck. I was in pretty bad shape, but after about 16 weeks, I was walking again on my own, and after 18 weeks, I got my halo off. I had to wear a neck brace for a while after that but was eventually discharged from physical therapy in September.
Before the accident, I ran cross-country for my school, but my main sport was horseback riding. Although I was released from physical therapy, I was nowhere near where I had been physically before the accident. I had lost a lot of muscle strength after 7 months of not doing any significant activity and could not return yet to my sports. I wanted to get back to where I was, but I had always hated the idea of exercising! My mom found Trans Fit and made me go; I thought I would hate it!
I started going twice a week for 30-minute training sessions in October 2016, and I haven't quit because I have ended up loving it! I have come to realize that exercising actually makes me feel good — mentally and physically! Thanks to the encouragement and fitness plan of my trainer, Katie, I started riding horses again in December! I love going to Trans Fit, getting stronger, and celebrating the body the Lord gave me back!
Hannie's mom also said-
We have been so appreciative of the quality training Hannie has received at TransFit! This March will be a year since the accident, and we will be forever thankful for all God has done to heal Hannie. She has made such progress and looks forward to more! We are glad Hannie is regaining her strength, but we are also glad she is learning the value of life-long regular exercise and healthy choices. We believe God placed just the right people in the right places at the right time for Hannie’s miraculous recovery, and Trans Fit has now become part of that plan too!
Hannie, we are so proud of your hard work and determination! You are an inspiration to all of us! Keep motivated, striving for progress daily!
We look forward to seeing you next week in the studio! If you our your daughter would like to set up a 1-1 session with one of our trainers or nutrition consultants please email us or check the TransFit App under 1-1 Personal Training.
Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy the everyday blessings in your life!
