April 2014 Athlete of the Month: Terri
I used to work out in a big box gym, but realized that it had gotten so monotonous that I was only going through the motions. Although my workouts were sufficient for health benefits, I really wasn't motivated to do them anymore. Often, it was a struggle to even go to the gym. So, when I came across a Powered by Ivan Groupon, I decided to give it a try. I had taken boot camp classes before, so I thought, how bad could it be? During the first class, I thought WTF - we have to do 7 rounds? I left after 4 rounds. During the 2nd class, I proudly told Ivan I finished in 20 minutes. He said, great - you finished the warm up in 20 minutes, now do the WOD. Seriously?? It was a humbling experience, but Ivan was always encouraging. He adjusted the workouts accordingly to work around my injuries. He corrected my form which helped me lift heavier weights. The workouts are always a different combination of exercises that build strength and endurance, so I am constantly challenged. The other members are friendly, welcoming and encouraging - they've help me push through the last round of the WOD many times. There are still times when I can't finish the WOD, but I now realize that my workouts are a work in progress. As long as I push myself hard, I will continue to improve.
