Julie walked in our doors 5 years ago and has been a constant joy to work with each and every week. In the 5 years that she has been at FCF we’ve seen her strength, mobility, and body awareness grow exponentially. She always comes in with a smile, has a positive attitude, wants to continue learning how to challenge herself and works hard in each training session. She loves trying new challenging exercises and knows her regular fitness routine along with a healthy lifestyle are what will add quality to her years. Her dedication to a healthy lifestyle is unwavering and we just love watching her grow. Just check out her pushing the sled below, that’s 100 pounds with just the sled itself! You rock Julie!
But, it’s not all about the physical for Julie, read more…
“I joined FCF because I want to stay physically and mentally fit for as long as possible. Now that my parents and in-laws are in their late 80s/early 90s, I think a great deal about the aging process. Everything that I read confirms that exercise, socializing, healthy diet and cognitive engagement are vital for quality aging. FCF ensures that I am getting the proper exercise and also adds a special component to my social life.
I truly feel that FCF is the most significant factor in my ability to age well. I have been working with a personal trainer on the weekends for about 15 years, and he told me that he hasn’t seen any real decline in my muscular health, strength, mobility or balance. In fact, he loves to tell me that I am at the same level as many of his clients who are 20 years younger.
I am at the studio 5 days a week when we have Dance Party and 4 days on the other weeks. Each day, I look forward to the physical challenges that await me and the warm environment where I feel so welcomed and encouraged. It is for those reasons that I have never wavered in my commitment to being there. The only time I cancel is when I have out of town guests, am out of town myself, or aren’t feeling well, which is rare because of the way my exercise routine contributes to my overall health.
Although I was active on and off throughout my life, my time at FCF has been the most consistently active I have ever been. I like that I feel accountable.
What stands out to me about FCF is that the coaches ensure we are doing everything with the proper form. I love when I am told to move my foot a quarter inch! That tells me that every detail is being watched. I also love the variety, just when I am getting a little comfortable with a workout regime, it changes. Most of all, I just can’t say enough about the environment. It truly feels like my home away from home because of all the wonderful people who work there and the like-minded clients who want to age as well as possible.”
Our philosophy at FCF is to support the things you love to do outside of the gym. You don’t need to be in here for hours at a time to see and feel the difference, just 30 minutes 3-4 days a week will do the trick to build strength and improve balance, mobility and endurance.
