Name, occupation, where you live, and how long you have been in the Get You In Shape program.
Kathy Chasteen, I am a PE teacher and Athletic Coach at Coppell Middle School North and a Coppell resident for the last 16 years and I started Get You In Shape at the beginning of this last summer.
Where were you in your life before Get You in Shape? What did your life look like?
Coaching takes a lot of time before and after school, so I would try to go to the gym after practice… but most of the time I was too tired and I just wanted to go home and rest from the long day!!
Why did you join Get You in Shape?
Because all of my clothes were way too tight, my mid-section was hanging over the top everything, I was TIRED all of the time and seemed to never have enough rest!
What was your first experience or first impression with Get You in Shape?
My daughter Kelly and I started with the 5:30am class in the “beginner” section. The other section was for the hard core CRAZY people!! Ha!! Anyway… I had a hard time; sometimes the warm up would do me in before we even started the WOD! Mile Wednesday was horrible… I hated running because it was so hard for me.
What are some of the tools from the Get You In Shape program that have helped you?
Advocare…specifically the 24 day challenge. It helped me understand what and how to eat; the importance of vitamins and supplements. Spark has changed my life; I live on it and water.
Boot Camp… more about this in #6 below
Cardio Club… I want to give a lot of credit to Kristi, the personal trainer, and the Cardio Club program! I hated running! I called her class” track practice” and that was not a compliment. I used to literally die in the warm up and now I can run it without stopping and I’m not the last one to finish anymore!
What do you like most about the Get You In Shape Program?
I now really do not mind working out. I love how the trainers motivate and how the clients support each other. I love how each workout is planned with me in mind and all I have to do is show up!
How has the Get You in Shape program helped change your life?
I have more energy than I have had in DECADES.
What is your proudest moment or results from the Get You in Shape program?
*last mile Wednesday… took almost 2 minutes off my last mile time
*lost 13.75 total inches since June
* I have a friend that sells clothes… and she ask me to model them for her at her last showing… trust me, this has never happened before.
* And last but not least… my husband and I were going out to eat with friends and when I came out to get in the car… He said, “Oh My Gosh, you look great” and this time I could tell he really meant it!
How has the Get You in Shape Program impacted other areas of your life?
I feel better than I have in such a long time.
What are the results that you have achieved from the Get You In Shape program and how has Get You In Shape played a role in your results?
Well let’s just say, I would not have achieved the results I talked about earlier without the Get You In Shape program and Cardio Club.
Kelly and I have joined the “CRAZY” people on the other side and they’re not so crazy!
