Vicki's Fit Chick Transformation!!

Let me introduce you to my amazing chick Vicki! She is 61 years YOUNG, she keeps her mind and body moving and doesn't let any thing slow her down! She will tell ya, most of the chicks in our class are about half her age BUT she isn't focused on that - She is focused on herself! She works crazy hard, she leaves drenched in sweat and attends other TFC camps to get in extra workouts! She thought not much had been changing for her, until I snapped the most recent Unicorn pic of her. Left was March and right is October! Here's her TFC journey in her words:

I had a workout partner and we went to the gym almost 5 days a week. She started to get tired of the workouts and wanted to go back to another workout program.  I retired on April 1, 2015, and kept going to the gym but it wasn’t the same.  The end of January 2016 my niece asked me if I wanted to try Texas Fit Chicks, and I said sure.  I signed up as an official member February 1, 2015. 

I wasn’t looking for a quick fix because I knew I didn’t gain the weight overnight so it wasn’t going to come off overnight.  At first I was more interested in what the scale showed, but the more I worked out I became more interested in getting stronger and building muscle.  I knew from watching my mother-in-law and father-in-law I was going to need strength the older I got.  The saying is true if you don’t use it you lose it. Also, I wanted to keep my cholesterol down. 

After the first week I was hooked. I had a place to work out with other ladies, and I didn’t have to figure out what I was going to do each day I worked out!!  The Awesome thing about Texas Fit Chicks is every day it is something different and there is always a modification if you aren’t able to do some exercise. The other thing I didn’t like about working out by myself was I never knew if I was doing an exercise or machine correctly. Our Awesome trainer, Christy Riley, is always willing to help you and show you the correct form.  She is really concerned about you becoming the person you want to be and you cannot find that in a gym!!! 

I feel so much better since starting with Texas Fit Chicks. It’s so good to be able to work out first thing in the morning and then go about what I need to get done the rest of the day instead of trying to fit my workouts in through the day!! 

I get excited about the small things in life so taking one day at a time and one step at a time with Texas Fit Chicks works for me!!
