January 2015 - Athlete of the Month:
My name is Amber , I am 33 years old and a busy mother of a 2 year old daughter. Growing up I was always tall, thin and lanky. I never had to work at my figure. I have also always been athletic and enjoyed being fit. During my teens and twenties, my body remained thin and slim. However, all that changed after I had my daughter. Keeping weight off and staying lean and fit wasn’t as easy and workouts at home were not enough. I decided it was time for a serious change and needed to be committed to something more serious. I had inquired with several gyms, yet working next door to Ivan seemed an obvious answer to my problems! Finding time to get to the gym with a two year old was challenging enough, but Ivan offered a variety of classes at different times so I tried it out for a week and haven’t looked back. I have not only lost the struggling weight, but have gained 2-3% body mass in the past eight weeks I’ve been with Ivan and love the results so far. I look forward to watching my body change and become more firm, toned and fit. At this point, I’m not 100% sure of my specific fitness goals, except that I want to feel and look good. I want to see definition and I want to become stronger, both mentally and physically. Working out has always given me that boost and missing a day makes me feel so, blah. Time will tell where else working out takes me but I’m ready for the journey. This has become an easy part of my routine. I wake up every morning eager to get into the gym and see what challenge is given to me. Leaving PBI sore is the absolute best to me as I know I am making gains each and every day. Ivan is a great support! He is very informative and helpful. He has also helped me get my diet back in order, diet meaning, making smart and healthy food choices. Between eating right and working out 5 times a week, I have quickly seen results and know more are to come. His gym is always fun and challenging and I enjoy being around everyone that I work out with and I look forward to new friendships. We keep each other on our toes, push each other to the next level, and don’t let each other give up. Thank you for welcoming me and helping me get my groove back in the gym!To view all of the previous Athlete's click the Athlete of the Month Tab at the top of the page!
