                 JOAN AMORE

Eight hours a day, Joan sits in front of a computer at work.  As the years went by, she began to notice how weak and achy she was getting every time she stood up.  Joan also noticed her weight was slowly creeping up.  “I knew I had to do something.  I would work out off and on but lacked motivation and also felt like I was never sure of what I was doing or if it was even helping me.”

 Joan started training at Pro Fitness about a year ago.  This is where her story takes a bit of a twist.  “I actually won a free training session at a ‘Girls Night Out’ event at the mall.  I wasn’t even sure if I was going to take advantage of it, but figured I had nothing to lose.  I never thought I would like working with a trainer but Lisa showed me exactly how to do things, kept me motivated, and gave me the encouragement I needed!  It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!”

 Initially Joan wanted to build up strength and endurance, and lose a few pounds.  “My husband and I also like to bike together and he was always way ahead of me.  I felt like I struggled so much just to keep up, it wasn’t much fun!  So one of my goals was to be able to keep up with him and enjoy the ride!  We have gone out a couple of times now this year and I am amazed at how much easier it is for me to keep up with him!  I am enjoying it so much more! (He is impressed)!”

Going forward, Joan’s strives to continue with a healthy lifestyle, challenge herself a little bit more, make exercise a priority, and be healthy and active for many years to come.  “I have gone from hating exercise to feeling like I NEED to exercise and looking forward to it! I have so much more confidence, energy, and just a much better sense of well-being!  I also find myself being much more aware of what I am eating.  I am overall living a much healthier lifestyle.”

“I just want to thank the staff at Pro Fitness.  From Steve at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome, to all of the staff who made me feel so comfortable from day one!  Everyone there is so friendly.  I especially want to thank Lisa, because I would NEVER be where I am now if it wasn’t for her encouragement and making me fell that I could do things I never thought I would be able to do, or want to do!  Also, Doug, whom I have worked with a few times, and always learned so much from him! I love Pro Fitness!!”
