Changing Lives, One Body at Time!
Kristin R. 50
UB Personal Training: After 9 years of taking care of my aging parents and their deaths, my health had definitely taken a back seat. During those years there wasn’t time for exercise or healthy eating habits. All of this resulted in high cholesterol and diabetes added to already high blood pressure. My energy level was low and I’d accepted the fact that I’d be on medication for the rest of my life. After turning 50 in November, I decided it was time to make some changes and move my health up the priority list.
After setting new health goals I found myself being referred to UBX. A personal trainer had never entered my mind as part of the plan to achieve my goals. After meeting with Luke, in January I began a part of my health journey that has been so very rewarding! The exercise combined with healthy eating habits have already made a positive impact on my health in a short time. I have become stronger, have more energy, flexibility has increased, and I am able to do things that I haven’t done for 20 plus years. As a workout is “mastered” a new one takes it’s place to continually push me to a new level. Luke has challenged me to do things I never thought possible.
Other health goals have begun to be realized in this short period of time. Blood sugars have dropped significantly making it possible for me to avoid medication to treat my diabetes. Blood pressure is lower allowing movement toward a goal of no longer needing medication to treat it. While I was hopeful these would occur, I never thought it would be this quickly.
A personal trainer is not the intimidating experience I thought it would be and I look forward to my workouts! It’s never too late to begin an exercise routine and I can’t wait to see where this journey leads me!
