I am a six month member of Breakthrough Personal Training and two months into my program I tore a muscle in my lower back while landscaping in my backyard. I was in extreme pain and thought it’s all over for me.
I had missed out on over a month of classes and was getting depressed. I finally decided to join a strength training program to take care of me and look what happens!
Deciding after three weeks that the pain was too much, Chris suggested I see Rob at CORE Physical Training to help relieve me of my pain. Rob worked miracles and I felt better faster than I expected so I begged him to let me rejoin my classes.
I was already missing the workouts and was worried that this setback would be the excuse I needed to give up on myself as I had done so many other times in the past.
During this time Chris was in constant contact with me checking in to see how I was feeling and to support me when I felt that overwhelming urge to give up.
His words of encouragement meant a lot to me.
When I was cleared by Rob he suggested that I ease myself slowly back in and that I talk to Chris and have him put together a one on one program for me. Chris came up with a routine that also included a weekly yoga class and off we went.
When I started my training eight weeks ago I was embarrassed at how little strength and control I had. It’s easy to get lost in the crowd but now it was all me out there.
What in my mind should be a simple exercise was not so simple to my body. It took me a while to stop beating myself up and stop over thinking the movements.
Chris has been patient and supportive through it all and always starts our session off with how are you feeling?
In retrospect, the individual training has been the best thing that has happened to me. I am amazed at how much stronger and in control I feel and my back pain is gone.
I have my confidence back and am in a place physically that I never thought I’d ever be in. I’ve even discovered yoga which I go to twice a week!
Now I’m off to strengthening other body parts!
This is what I had hoped Breakthrough would be for me the day I signed up and Chris has not let me down one day.
This is an amazing total body program that I’m excited to be a part of.
