I am honored to be the IFC June member of the month. Like many, my story is one that is heard over and over again. Trying to balance a healthy active lifestyle is a challenge that most of us face on a daily basis. Juggling a demanding career, a family and exercise is a challenge I face each and every day.
I came to IFC in late December after my dear friend Vaska Stojova gave IFC great reviews and I saw the results that Vaska accomplished. I met with Angela to see if IFC was the right fit for me. I was looking for a place to call home after working with several different trainers at a local health club in my neighborhood. I needed to find a place where I would be able to balance my hectic lifestyle, incorporate my fitness goals, and get my nutrition back on track.
After sitting down with Angela I was truly encouraged by all her ideas on how I could get my exercise changes I needed to make in order to start seeing results. My nutrition, like most was lacking and since I have joined IFC I have not missed a breakfast in the past 6 months. With my busy life and demanding career, breakfast was never a priority for me and now it is part of my daily routine.
For me, an active lifestyle was a normal way of life until I injured both of my knees, as well as finding out my mom was diagnosed with Dementia which now requires a good portion of my time. I knew getting my health back on track needed to be moved up on my priority list so I could help out with my mom’s care.
I signed up for the VIP package which I started in January and I am very pleased with my results. My strength has increased; I have lost inches, lost weight, gained muscle and most importantly lost body fat. I feel that I am on the road to great fitness results.
My VIP coaches have been wonderful. Angela, Luaxana, Rebecca, Laurie and Kris have given me the encouragement to continue on even when I was physically or mentally exhausted, they push me to do my very best, and most importantly they make sure I am always using proper to form to avoid an injury. The monthly coaching calls help evaluate my progress as well as help keep me on track.
IFC has become a part of daily lifestyle. The IFC family has given me the tools and knowledge to help me reach my fitness goals, which includes everything from challenging work outs, to nutrition tips to help keep my meal plans on track.
Lastly, I want to thank my family who has given me their total support. My husband has been wonderful since I joined IFC and he makes sure each and every night there is a healthy meal waiting for me when I get home from my workouts.
I am looking forward to continued results and I know joining IFC was the right move for me.
Thank you IFC team for always encouraging me to achieve the impossible. I have learned that anything is possible with a little hard work and determination.
