How long have you been training with Functional Fitness?

I have been working with Functional Fitness since February 2012.  I started training with Trevor and have also been working with Dustin since he joined the team of coaches.
I continue to train at Functional Fitness because of the support and expertise I get from these awesome, caring people.  Training has become a part of my life and the people at Functional Fitness have become family.

What have you accomplished since joining Functional Fitness?

After doing strength training at Functional Fitness, I am able to do my own housework.  I train for an hour and walk two miles twice a week.  I needed to lose some weight to take some of the pressure off my knees.  I joined Weight Watchers, but was losing slowly.  When I started training, the weight came off fast.  I have lost 79 pounds.  I would not have been able to reach my goals without the support, nutritional advice, and training experts I get at Functional Fitness.

I have bilateral total knee replacements.  Before I started training, I could barely walk a block.  One of my biggest challenges and frustrations was being able to do my housework.  I had to hire a housekeeper which created an extra expense.  Now I know I can accomplish my fitness and health goals with the help and guidance of the trainers at Functional Fitness.  My self esteem and self confidence have improved ten times of what it was.

Why did you join Functional Fitness?

I joined the Community Center to increase my walking ability.  I was looking for a trainer to help me with an exercise plan, so I wouldn’t hurt my knees.  I was walking with my daughter Vicky Kuehn.  Trevor was at the center and Vicky wanted me to meet him.  I did an interview with him and decided to start training.  I have never regretted that decision.  I would not have been able to reach my goals without the support, nutritional advice and training experts I get at Functional Fitness.  It has become a lifestyle change.

What advice do you have for others looking to become healthier?

My advice to anyone that wants to lose weight and get started on a regular exercise routine is what are you waiting for?  The rest of your life starts now.  Join Functional Fitness and let these talented, awesome, and caring people help you.  It may save your life.  It has saved mine.
