Each month, Legacy Life Fitness will feature an active participant on their journey to building their own legacy.
I am a freshman government teacher Hickman High School - going on for 19 years!
For me, the motivation is providing myself “me” time. I have always worked out before school because I know how easy it is for the day/energy to get away from you. My workouts really help set the tone for my day and my attitude. Even though I am human and there are many mornings
I wake up tired and don’t want to go, I am ALWAYS glad I did. Workouts give me energy that I need for the day. One reason I have maintained this lifestyle is that I love my body, not hate it. I am in competition with myself and do it as a lifestyle not "for a trip, bathing suit, or a life event" I found doing it for isolated reasons only gets isolated, not long term results!
Because I have been working out for so long it is easy to get into a rut. One of my dear friends had me come to boot camp with her. Even though I did similar classes at my gym it was nice to have the comradery and differing workouts. It is here that I met Bryce and really enjoyed his style and training and wealth of knowledge that you just can’t get from a website or a book. This is such a personal journey and he has structured my workouts/foods to what my needs are…not the “masses” that they gear the internet articles to.
Working out has always made me feel good….now I feel strong! But the greatest benefit is overall health! Working in school it can be a challenge with all the germs (smiles) but working out helps not only my immune system but mental health as well!
I love to run (but I am not a fast runner) …it is easy to get lost in my own thoughts and music. But I am finding as my body is responding to the weights I enjoy seeing my body become more sculpted and defined, something I have always wanted and I knew my body needed especially as
I am quickly approaching 50!
