February 2015 - Athlete of the Month:
Hi, I’m Dave and I’m 52 years old. I never played sports when I was younger or had any athletic ability so exercising was foreign to me.In December 2008, I joined Lifetime Fitness because I wanted a change. I was getting older and nearing the half century mark. So I decided to do it right by hiring a personal trainer for a one on one sessions, three days a weeks. I followed my trainers’ instructions and never missed a class. Results were slow but I continued my sessions for five consecutive months. I spent thousands of dollars but never felt any improvements except my pocketbook was lighter… One day at the gym they had an open house where I tried all of the classes. Once class stuck out more than others. It was a class on Muay Tai taught by Ivan. His class which was unlike any other exercise I've done before. In the twenty minutes he spent with me teaching the basics, I knew I found a trainer who made exercising fun. What separated Ivan is that he truly enjoys what he does. He didn’t mind when we stayed after class and practice. He offered encouragement and watched his students to make sure we were doing it right. After a while, he knew how to push me so I maximize my workout. I followed Ivan from gym to gym over the past 6 years and I never regretted it. Ivan continues to mix things up by teaching us Crossfit and weightlifting. He continues to find ways to challenge me.I never ran more than a few yards to a refrigerator but he got me into shape to run a 5K. Soon, I was signing up to do multiple 5K’s and 10K’s. Later, we started to include our bikes during our workouts sessions which gave me confidence to compete in my first Duathlon. Since then, I've competed in many events. I even placed 5th in my age group in the Galena Duathlon couple years ago. Anyone who knows Galena, knows it’s rated one of the top ten hardest Duathlon in the US. OK…there were only six competitors in my class.Well, it only took me 2146 days since I met Ivan to be the “Athlete of the month”.
