Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
I’ve only been with GYIS for about 8 weeks so my life has not changed that much, yet. I have been sleeping better and some of my clothes are fitting better. I’m not into my goal dress yet but hopping to see that happen before the end of August. My energy level is better and I now enjoy walking the dog.

Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
Nothing else I tried was working and my Oncologist said I should try some resistance training. GYIS offered virtual sessions at an affordable rate and liked the idea that I was only expected to do what I can. So many other programs seemed to want to guilt you into doing what everyone else was doing.

Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
1st impression was this looks different from other programs, it was local and it looked like exercises I could do. 1st week, OMG, every muscle in my body hurts. Then it got better and now I’m able to push myself those few extra seconds/reps.

Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
The GYIS & My fitness pal apps. Measuring myself every 2 weeks. Checking in on FB after each workout.

Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?
Other programs were either planned meals only, cutting all carbs or only counting calories. Which worked short term but not long term. GYIS takes diet, exercise and coaching as an all encompassing program.

Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
I’ve lost 10lbs. and 10 inches overall in my 1st 6 weeks on the GYIS program. I have more energy & less stress with work. I actually feel more tired when I miss a workout. I have a knee injury that I have had to nurse for years. Actual did some PT last fall for it. Doing the mobility stretching has helped my knee feel better than it has in a long time.

Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
If you are committed to doing the work this program will help anyone at any age reach their goals. I have a long road to reach mine but I am enjoying the journey.
