I will CONQUER this! -Matt Oakes
As I am writing this, I am sitting here thinking about my last month, boy what a whirlwind, time flies when you are busy and having fun!! Now has it all been fun? Not exactly but it has been interesting and rewarding both at the same time.
Ok down to business, the workouts are simply amazing, first off every time you go to a session you never know what is going to happen, the coaches/trainers are always changing things up, I don’t think I have done any one exercise twice in the months that I have gone. (Mind you I am on week 8.) Some exercises in the class yes, I have done, but mostly the classes as a whole are always different!! There is something to be said for that, you never get bored to say the least, and you work different muscle groups all the time.
Sneak a peak at one of my training sessions:
There are some areas of my muscles that I have serious issues with, but I find that these areas challenge me more and give me more drive to overcome the lack of muscle. I will admit that it is sometimes embarrassing to me to think that I cannot do some of these exercises, but the environment that this family provides does not make you feel that way at all, as a matter of fact, I can vividly remember one session, where I was doing something that was not real comfortable for me and right at the start of doing this I said, “I’m going to give this my all”, it was a tough session, I kept on going as best I could and the rest of the people in the session started to cheer me on!!
I looked and they were all cheering and clapping! What a great sense of accomplishment this gave me. The best part is we are a team and here to help each other, keep in mind this was a training session that I had not done before and some of the people did not even know me.
I left that day knowing we are all family here and that is so inspiring.
Overall I am enjoying my time and feeling better! Not as good as I am hoping to get, but better, a whole lot better than 8 weeks ago, I am doing a lot of things that I found was either very hard or almost impossible to do 8 weeks ago! Small steps one training session after another.
I will get in shape and conquer this! I got this with the help of my Wilcox family!
Enjoy be happy and live healthy!
