December 2018 Client Spotlight

                    JEANNE WOLF

My goal was to lose 10 lbs and get back into shape after a long recovery from foot surgery.  I just couldn’t get myself motivated to get back into exercise with my new limitations and eating right.

After a friend recommended her, I initially met with Colleen Ducke for personal coaching.  She encouraged me to set mini goals and to try Chrystal’s boot camp.  I went, I tried, and I literally cried, right there in the middle of boot camp.  I tried telling myself there is no crying in boot camp but it didn’t help.  Looking back, everyone was super encouraging but I was just so very disappointed with how much endurance and fitness I had lost in 1 1/2 years.  I survived boot camp, dried my tears, and called for personal training later that day.  I needed accountability along with encouragement and I needed to be challenged.

Doug answered the call to all of that and more.  When I blamed hormones and menopause, he showed me pictures of women my age and challenged me to keep going.  When I blamed pain in my foot, he gave me different exercises.  He didn’t allow me to have any excuses.  He also helped me find a new way of eating, where I no longer have cravings for sweets or any time where I am feeling famished.  I can travel all day and not miss having to eat.  I travel a lot so that was a huge victory for me.

As far as my goals, I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement of Doug, Colleen, Chrystal, and Lisa.   I am down 2 clothing sizes, hiking with my grandchildren, wearing a swimsuit in public, and I even did push-ups on a glacier in Alaska.  I can’t wait to see what I will accomplish in 2019!
