The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have transformed their health and fitness.
Billy Faught is a Project Manager for Robertson Commercial Pools and has lived in Coppell since 1985. He joined Get You In Shape in September 2014 after receiving a ‘free’ month by some friends who were already attending.
Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program? Amanda Glassey and Beth Faught had been peer pressuring me for a long time. I had no other excuses when “free August” was offered. It only took one month for me to realize that I needed the accountability so I signed up for 3 months, then went “all in” in January.
Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program? Basically a roller coaster…….I would get interested in running and enter an event, then struggle because I let life get in the way of training. So I would get frustrated and quit running for a while until another event would come around.
Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program? I was nervous at first. I have “worked out” for the majority of my adult life, but usually on my own doing what I thought was best. A “drill instructor” hollering “Give me one more” was not something I wanted to deal with. I wasn’t sure I could keep up. But every trainer has been instructional, uplifting, positive, and inclusive while getting the most out of my workout.
Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you? The Facebook page, Brad’s email tips, and My Fitness Pal are great helps. But most beneficial are the trainers and my fellow GYIS’ers. The support and sense of community here makes me actually look forward to burpees (if we do only 5 at a time).
Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? The trainers and the sense of community. This is not “just a business” for Brad and Cynthia, it is a life style that they want to share and enable their clients to make the most out of who they can be.
Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program? Two examples…..my son and I went to Colorado elk hunting in October. It was not “hide and wait for something to walk out”, we were up and down the mountains in air a little thinner than here, sometimes at a full jog. No way I could have kept up without the training. In November, my Dad had a quadruple by-pass with complications that made for a 6-week stay in the hospital. My Dad is a big guy, and I had to wrestle him around because he was so weak from the surgery. I also drew the night shift for a while. Again, my training enabled me to help in ways not possible had I not been in shape. Honestly, this program has given me the confidence to think I can do anything I want to do…I just have to want it. I am more physically and mentally fit than I have ever been….and that’s a long time!
Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program? JUST DO IT!! Seriously, come to a free workout, or just come watch one. You will see the positive reinforcement, the camaraderie, and the results.
