As a member of Evolve Fitness for many years, I have always wanted to work with a personal trainer. I had always wondered if I was exercising properly for my body type and for my health. During the summer, I would be at the gym almost every day. However, as soon as the fall and winter came, I had difficulty motivating myself to get to the gym.
About a year and a half ago when I was renewing my membership, I met Kristin Mercurio. I decided to try working out with a personal trainer. During my interview with Kristin, she asked me what my goals were for working out and I kiddingly said that I would like to be able to wear a bikini (which is laughable given my age). Kristin looked at me with a straight face and said "why not." I knew right then that Kristin was the type of trainer I needed.
There are a few reasons why I decided to work with a trainer - to increase my bone density, to hold me accountable to get to the gym especially during the winter, and to feel strong and healthy. Since I began my training, I am coming to the gym at least 2-3 times per week in between training sessions, even during the winter. I didn't need to lose weight; however, I have noticed a difference with my body. I look more toned and I feel healthier and stronger.
Kristin has been a good match for me. She is personable and very supportive. She makes me believe that I can do anything at the gym. I meet with her once per week for a half an hour. The time goes by very quickly. I love the variety of workouts that she has planned for me. It is never boring. Working with Kristin is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
