Courtney's Texas Fit Chicks Success Story!!


My name is Courtney Blanks and I am 27 years old. I have been apart of Texas Fit Chicks on and off since October 2013. I am single and do not have children. I currently work two jobs. I am a claim's adjuster at Geico Monday thru Friday, and on Saturday nights I wait tables at Dakota's Steakhouse downtown. Every now and then I also throw in the occasional pet sitting/ house sitting job.

My favorite exercises are anything Leg related. My least favorite exercise is the frog jump. The ah ha moment for me was my boyfriend challenging me to run the Spartan Beast race with him and absolutely thinking I wouldn't even come close to finishing. A million excuses ran through my head of why I shouldn't run but in the same hour I found a Groupon for Texas Fit Chicks online. I loved the idea of having the accountability and working out with women with real lives and who were also trying to be fit and healthy.

So I said why not... I have had a rough journey with Texas Fit Chicks as I had challenges with school schedules, job hunt and the most recent car accident. Therefore I don't have the really moving transformation story physically. However, I would like to say that mentally I have transformed the most. I gave up on the excuses lifestyle taking over the little motivation that I had. I have learned and have been inspired to have a lifestyle change of eating healthy for mind, body and spirit. I understand that its not just about looking good on the outside but feeling awesome on the inside. Texas Fit Chicks has introduced me to the tools necessary for this transformation.  

My family and friends have noticed the changes in my eating habits and are inspired to get healthy not just for them but their families as well. What I tell everyone about Texas Fit Chicks is that it's not just a fad or something that I have to do. Texas Fit Chicks is something that I look forward to every week and want to do. It is an environment where its okay for you to gripe and moan... and probably somebody else is right there with you! There is no pressure to be the ultimate fitness champion. It is a group of women who are inspiring each other to be the best they can be. It is truly a special experience that no gym or one personal trainer can give you. I am truly looking forward to 2014 and getting not just fit but Texas Chick Fit :-)
