I am a Registered Nurse Supervisor at the University of Missouri Hospital.

(Q) How long have you been working out?

Q) How do you find the time & motivation for your workouts, on top of a very demanding career?

I like Bryce’s coaching style and motivation. I really enjoy working out with someone who is knowledgeable about the importance of whole life wellness as well as the proper form for lifting.

Q) What are the greatest benefits you've felt from continuing the exercise?

Improved energy, self-confidence, increased strength for my job.

May Featurette: Meet Leslie

(Q) What is your current occupation, and for how long?

I am a freshman government teacher Hickman High School - going on for 19 years!

(Q) How long have you been working out?

21 years.

Q) How do you find the time & motivation for you workouts, on top of being a High school teacher with a very demanding class schedule?

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!

Q) You’ve been an LLF client for about 9 months, why did you start with LLF & why do you keep coming?

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.

Q) What are the greatest benefits of consistently working out?

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!

Q) What’s your favorite exercise or style of workout?

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!

April Featurette: Meet Rachel

(Q) What is your current occupation, and for how long?

I am an educator of young minds (a.k.a. first grade teacher.) I have been teaching at Rock Bridge Elementary for 10 years and counting.

(Q) How long have you been working out?

I have been working out for 8 years on a regular basis after more than 10 years of starting and stopping too many workout routines.

(Q) How do you find the time & motivation for your workouts, on top of being an Elementary school teacher with a very active class?

Working out is my social time with adults after long days at school with busy little people. I plan my week of family time and dinners around my Monday and Wednesday evening boot camp. Also, I know that I will be missed by the other Legacy Life Fitness (LLF) regulars if I don’t hold to my workout commitments. That accountability helps me set myself up for success. In the end, I know that I feel better working out rather than if I don’t. The most important thing for me to do is just show up. Everything else takes care of itself if I do that one simple thing.

(Q) You’ve been a Legacy Life Fitness client for 6 years, why do you keep coming?

I have found a group of people at LLF that I fit in with and can be myself. I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not. I can modify when I have to and push where I can and continue on my own physical fitness journey alongside others working on their own goals. I like knowing that I am part of something as unique as LLF is because everyone who wants to be there is important. I would miss not being a part of the LLF community and that is enough to keep me constantly coming back for more. Being a part of such a community has a built=in accountability factor that keeps me focused on my fitness goals.

(Q) What are the greatest benefits from continuing to workout?

My health has become an important focus in my life over the past few years. I know the best way to take care of myself is adopting a lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise. I always feel better after a workout and that helps me make better eating choices in between my workout times. By working out on a regular basis it helps me focus on feeling good making healthy choices, which lead to more healthy choices. It is important for me to be proactive about my physical and mental health.. Working out regularly is the key to my healthy body and mind. I like feeling healthier and stronger and working out does that for me.

(Q) What’s your favorite exercise or style of workout?

I love the strength I feel with lifting. That is my favorite type of workout without a doubt. At LLF I have stepped out of my comfort zone by trying new things at bootcamp. As I think about my best workouts, they are the workouts that I do with people I have gotten to know through LLF.
