The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have transformed their health and fitness.
Beth Faught lives in Coppell, TX with her husband, Damon, and 5 year-old daughter, Hayden. She is a Division Manager at CROSSMARK, in Plano, TX, managing the Hill’s Pet Nutrition account. She joined Get You In Shape in May 2014.
Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program? I was at a point where I was paying for a gym membership, and not using it. I love the outdoors, and have never really been a big fan of gyms – therefore I could never convince myself to go! When I heard about this outdoor bootcamp from my friend, Amanda Glassey, I knew it sounded like something I would enjoy. Plus, she was toning up and looking more fit every time I saw her – which definitely piqued my interest! I also really liked the idea of working out with others as a community. We hold each other accountable, and it makes the workouts more fun.
Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program? I’ve played sports my entire life, but after college my activity level reduced dramatically. Between work, travel, and a little one at home, I never made time for exercise. And, as I mentioned, the gym membership was just going to waste. Work was becoming more stressful, my energy level was low, and my weight was creeping up. I desperately needed a change.
Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program? After my first week with GYIS I knew I had made the right decision in signing up. It felt so good to be challenged again. It even felt good to have sore muscles again! After the first month, I definitely noticed a difference in my health. My stress level was reducing, my energy level increased, and exercising was becoming a normal part of my routine. Now, going to bootcamp, or going for a run on my off-days, has become my favorite part of the day. I still have a long way to go to achieve my weight-loss goals, but I am confident knowing GYIS will be there for support along the way.
Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
The My Fitness Pal app has been really beneficial in keeping my nutrition on track. It’s very eye-opening how fast those calories can add up. It’s really helped me to make smarter nutritional decisions. Also, planning my meals ahead of time has been key. We get so busy throughout the day, it’s really easy to grab something quick and un-healthy, but planning each meal the night before has made a huge difference.
Map My Run is my favorite app! I especially love that you can add friends, and see their activity. I have friends all over Texas that like to run, and are training for 10ks or half-marathons. Seeing their progress keeps me motivated.
Posting my off-day work-outs on the GYIS Facebook page has also been really motivational. It holds me accountable. Knowing you have to post your workouts, is a sure-fire way to get you off the couch!
Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? The GYIS program is by far above and beyond any other program I have tried. And, that’s not for lack of trying many other programs to lose weight, and get healthy – I’ve tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers (twice), as well as various other “quick-fix” diets. I’ve had little success with other programs, mainly due to always expecting to lose weight overnight, and getting frustrated and losing interest early on. In joining GYIS, exercise and eating right has become part of my life. There is no gimmick, or quick solution, and while it has taken me years to realize this – I am excited about this new health journey I have begun. Between the best-in-class trainers and the community support – nothing beats this program.
Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program? Since joining GYIS I have seen a dramatic difference in my confidence. It feels good knowing I am doing something to better my health. My energy level has greatly increased as well, which means I can keep up with my 5 year old! I recently convinced my father-in-law, Billy Faught, to join GYIS, so we have the benefit of working out together motivating each other. Above all, I am healthier and happier!
Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program? I would say, if you are feeling intimidated – do not be. This program is for the fit, and not so fit. There is no discrimination, as long as you have the will to finish what you started.
If you are concerned about the cost – do not be. You receive the benefits of personal training for a lot less. The trainers constantly provide individual support, including tips on how to properly exercise and correct your form so you gain the most benefit from every workout. It’s worth every penny.
