This Get You In Shape Co-Rookie for August joined Get You In Shape in April. Michele McClew lives in Coppell and is an accounting manager for Spencer Air Conditioning.
Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
I participated in a few free sessions and loved it. My status quo strength training workout wasn’t giving me the results I was looking for.
Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
Love the workouts, the positive helpful trainers and their interest in helping me reach my goals. It keeps my interest because every day is different and challenging.
Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
In May I joined full-time and started with the 24 day Advocare challenge along with using MyFitnessPal. I think that had a lot to do with getting me back into some better eating habits and jump starting my weight loss. Plus knowing what my calorie count really was for the day was enlightening.
Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?
Accountability and support! The trainers really care about your progress and fitness. Doing the exercises the correct way is so important and they continually demonstrate the exercise along with modifications. I love to run and I realized one of the most important factors for me is running outdoors. It’s the same with GYIS. I love exercising outside in all types of weather.
Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
I have not only lost weight, but my running and cycling has improved. I feel so much stronger overall. Since April, I’ve lost almost 9 lbs. and 11 inches overall. I feel great and overall so much stronger and confident. It’s crazy, but I look forward to my early morning (5:30am) workouts!
Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
It is a commitment, but worth everything you put into it! If you follow the workouts and utilize all the tools available you will be successful and reach your goals no matter what they are.
