Trufit Newsletter September 2022

Aug 31, 2022

Hello and welcome. In this month’s newsletter, member highlight featuring Heidi Priest; a scrumptious recipe from Kayla: beef and pepper rice bowl; and of course our super easy weekly workout schedule.

Week One workouts: Mon-Fully body circuit; Tue-Legs & Core; Wed-Full body WOD; Thur-Upper body; Fri-Core & Cardio; Sat-Mobility, Bootcamp/Weight lifting

Week Two workouts: Mon-Upper body & cardio; Tue-Full body circuit; Wed-Core & Cardio; Thur-Legs; Fri-Full body WOD; Sat-Mobility, Bootcamp/Weight lifting

I started this program because I felt very discouraged about my weight and overall health. After meeting with Jess, I had very high hopes for success. I believed I could stick to the meal plan and the small group exercise schedule.  I loved the small group weight/strength training with Sully. I gained strength and energy as time progressed. I immediately liked the workouts. That was the kickstart I needed to get active again. I still have a long way to go and plan to work harder on being more active. I gained confidence, and learned about proper form.  Sully and Gina taught me lot about form and how it matters to target specific muscles, and I learned quite a bit about the equipment and how to use it. It was fun and encouraging, great classes! I did not lose the weight I hoped for, but I did lose some. What I found is that it takes a lot of prep work and consistency to stay on a specific meal plan for life. I lost 6 lbs the first week (super encouraged) and then none for the next 4. At one point, I had lost a total of 10 lbs. I’ve gained a few of those back, which is frustrating. I will not give up; I have learned that it’s up to me to stay focused, keep tracking food, and make time for food prepping and my workouts. One aspect that confused me was the scan report. It showed I had gained fat. At my 6-week check-in, Jake said I was holding the handles wrong, which could be why, but it never changed in the coming weeks. So, I don’t understand how that happened.  Overall, I feel much better, have more energy, and met some very nice people at TruFit. I will continue to work on staying active and using what I learned to change my eating habits for life. My takeaway is that changing your lifestyle takes work! Old habits die hard, as they say, and nothing is going to be easy, it takes sacrifice and commitment.  I’d like to thank everyone at TruFit, the coaches are great, classmates were all super encouraging to meet! It’s a great program ~ Heidi Priest
