New Lease On Life

Submitted by: Apryl Orr

Chuck's Success Story

What to say about my transition from what I thought was in shape to actually being in great shape.
It started all by someone taking advantage of me at the gym. The staff stepped in and gave me some free personal training with Apryl. I gave her the challenge of keeping me interested. I told her I wanted to lose some weight and get cut, but I didn’t want to lose any muscle while doing it. Needless to say, I could not wait to buy more sessions with her.
Well Apryl exceeded my expectations. I was never became bored, I actually found myself becoming very excited with each workout session, I never knew what we going to do next. Apryl pushed me to my limits and passed. She helped me with the image of what I wanted my body to be and in the process gave me a new since of me. What I mean is, if your body is fit so is your mind. I’m an ER nurse and I work 12-hour shifts, which can become very physically and mentally draining. As my body became stronger so did my mind. I found that I was able to react to situations more proficiently and was able to work at a higher-level of energy than before.
Apryl was able to show me how to work out in a manner that was different than what I was used to. I always was in the mindset of just lifting weights and doing cardio. She introduced me to interval training. Can I say, can’t get enough.
Anyway, I’m starting to train for an Olympic triathalon, which I will doing at the end of this year, it will be my first . I have always wanted to do it, but thought it was out of my grasp. NOT NOW.
I would like to give a big thanks to Apryl for giving me a new lease on life. At 48 years old, I’m in better shape than I was 18 years ago.
