Pro Fitness is excited to put the spotlight on Thom Cody this month! Congratulations from staff and friends at Pro Fitness!
When did you start training at Pro Fitness?
I believe that it was May of 2016 after meeting Cindy.
Why did you decide to begin working with a Trainer?
I had made the decision to get back in shape and then I had met Cindy through one of my clients. Cindy was kind enough to offer me 5 free sessions as a thank you gift – Crazy Like Fox! I came in for my first session and was humbled in 15 minutes to realize how far out of shape I really was. With this in mind, it made sense to have a true professional help me on my journey so that I did not hurt myself!
What were your initial goals when you started?
Survive and not hurt myself!! As I said earlier it was a humbling experience to realize how far away from health and fitness that I really was. I started shortly after my 50th birthday and my goal was to get back in shape and to be healthier, stronger, thinner, and in better shape at 55 than I was at 40.
How has the changes you’ve made impacted your lifestyle?
Meeting and working with Cindy has truly been one of the greatest Blessings of my life! Not only has she helped me get back in shape, but she has helped me and my family with nutrition and eating healthier. Because of her council and hard work with me around nutrition, in particular giving up sugar and grains, I am pain-free in all my joints for the first time since my mid 30’s. This combined with my overall physical heath and strength has allowed me to live the more active lifestyle I am accustomed to! What a gift!
Going forward, what are your new goals?
It is my goal to build on the three days a week that I am at the gym at 5:30am. In addition, I am going to continue to build on the progress made and focus on getting down to my goal weight and improving on my overall strength and health. I would like to be a positive example to my kids, family and anyone else who believes that it is too far, too hard…It is hard, it is early to be at the gym at 5am waiting for the doors to open, but it is worth the effort!!! If I can do it, anyone can!
Any extra thoughts you would like us to add
My final thoughts are simple but important…Thanks!! I would like to thank the whole team at Pro Fitness – Cindy, Doug, Tammy, Crystal and the wonderful early birds Pat & Gary that I have the honor of spending time with each morning! You are all an inspiration to me and to all who come in contact with you! Thank you your positive, loving, caring spirit and for being my family, my peeps!! THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT OF YOU!
