Joey Klockare lost 69 pounds over the past year, and she would love to lose the last 25 this fall. In the past her weight fluctuated; she would lose weight only to put it back on. Sometimes she gained the weight back and continued to gain even more weight. Like many of you, Joey poured through different workouts and different diets as she searched for the answer that worked for her. She needed to find a path that provided consistency and longevity for her. She did, and it wasn’t a diet, a running program or hard-core weight training that worked for Joey. It was group fitness classes.
“With the group classes, there is a set time,” said Joey. “The days that I have group classes I can’t postpone going to the gym. I have a certain place to be, at a certain time.”
So she is going to group fitness classes twice a week to continue her quest to lose 25 more pounds. She also added the help of personal trainer once a week to give her an extra edge in completing her weight loss goal.
“The classes that I attend regularly are BodyWorks and Bootcamp,” said Joey. “The group classes push you, especially Bootcamp, to get out of your comfort zone and to do training you would never do on your own.”
Joey’s excitement is contagious. Her results thus far give her all the confidence in the world to sustain her progress and reach her goal. It’s not just her weight loss that provides Joey with her motivation; she is also reaching new fitness levels. Joey is accomplishing more than she ever even expected.
“It is fun to see transformation in your body and to feel a transformation in your ability,” said Joey. “It is great to know that I am capable of so much more today than I was six months ago, and that if I continue to work hard that I will be doing more than I am today. That is really fun to think about!”
There are so many of you with similar goals to lose weight, and yet you all are unique and different people. Joey’s story is reminder that there is no one right way for everyone to achieve their health and fitness goals, but there are in fact many paths and one of them is the right path for you.
