Prior to joining APT I hadn’t worked out at all. I had a lot of changes going on in my life and felt overwhelmed; therefore my activity was limited. I had a lot of obstacles to face…being tired was my biggest one. I was too tired to get out of my own way and unfortunately, things spiraled from there.
Before joining APT I started a new full-time job and I hadn’t worked full time since 1991. Two of my kids were in college, and my baby was graduating high school and going off to college. My parents both had health issues that required me to take care of them. I was taking care of 2 households. I could go on but you get the picture!
Since joining APT, over the last year I’ve gained in energy what I’ve lost in weight. I’ve increased my muscle mass so that I can burn more fat, and I’ve gained more confidence in MYSELF. Nutrition has also played a significant role in improving my health. I found the way I should be eating for MY body. It’s been hard but the results speak for themselves. I will never go back to my old habits. I will only keep going forward!
Ultimately, APT has instilled healthy habits into my life. My parents are both ill, and I see what diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and years of not taking care of themselves has done to them. I want to be around for my grandkids, be able to participate in events, etc. Working out has given me energy, stamina, and an all-around great feeling.
