Client Success! Meet Theresa

Ruckus Boston 8Hello!

I recently completed a very challenging obstacle course called Ruckus Boston.  What drew me to this was my sister.  For about a year, she kept sending me emails on races and would harass me with “yeah, you’ll never sign up.”  I always thought these kind of things were meant for the true, die-hard exercise people…that’s not me.

Well, I surprised her this past June…and signed up.

She told me the best “training” is Boot Camp / Fit Camp and it was.

I am not a runner, I am not a die-hard work out fanatic.  To train for the race, I took June’s class one day a week and then really would do 2 more days of exercising at the local gym.  Forty minutes of cardio, with some free weights…I was a little worried that this would not be enough training.

Race day came, I saw the obstacles…admittedly, it was a little intimidating.  But, I had two goals…a) to try each obstacle 3 times and if I can’t get it, move on and 2) to finish the course.

Out of 27 obstacles…I could not accomplish 2 (one, because it was closed) – of the 25 other ones I did complete…I got them on the first try.  More importantly…I finished it.

It was BY FAR the best time exercising I’ve ever had.

When it comes to fitness, I like variety….fit camp gives me that, and obstacle courses give me that.

So, what I found is you don’t have to be the exercise fanatic to do these obstacle courses…you just have to want to have fun…and I did.  So much so, that my next one is in 2 weeks… I’ve even recruited a few people to join in!

So, give it a try!!

Sincerely,

Theresa Reardon

Was she intimidated? Yes. Was she nervous? Yes.

Did she train and do it anyways?

YES!

Awesome Job, Theresa.
