How did I who was, ahem, “gym class challenged” end up working out at Mark Fisher Fitness? Or maybe the bigger question is how did I, a recovering Pro/Am ballroom dancer barely able to walk wind up here?
In the Mark Fisher Fitness Snatched in Six Weeks® program, we always ask, what is your “Why”? Why are you committing to this for 6 weeks? Why are you stepping out of your comfort zone? Why did you just give us a month’s rent to do this? Having a strong Why is super important when it comes to taking action and getting started.
One of the things I absolutely love about working at MFF is the willingness to celebrate. This is something I am obsessed with and something I see happen every single day. Not only do I love to watch celebration, but I also deeply believe in its importance for a better life and world. The beauty is that it’s not only the MFF team I see celebrate, but the Ninjas as well. We celebrate big moments of PRs and weight loss or gain, and the seemingly small victories of merely showing up on the tough days.
I stepped into the gym on a cool spring Tuesday evening, ready to begin a training session. I was feeling particularly unenergetic that evening, a bit discouraged as to my progress with weightlifting. I was being consistent, but progress seemed to be moving at a snail’s pace.
