TESTIMONIALS - KATHY

   

"It's such a great group of people who work and workout there and want to be better not just physical, but mentally and maybe spiritually as well. I feel supported and appreciated and love the positive atmosphere." Kathy, 46

I’m 46 and have been coming to Fusion since 2010. I started with once-a-week classes, and thought I was going to die! My spin teacher at a different studio referred myself and a couple of my friends (who also still come to Fusion), so we had been working out for a while, but not like that! We worked our way up from 1 to 2 times per week and within a year I was coming to Fusion exclusively.

My weight has gone up and down my whole life and it’s really hard for me to keep it down – Fusion has helped with that more than anything I’ve ever done in the past. It’s really more than that though, it’s about the mental benefits of the workout. I’m a therapist and all of the research shows that after talk therapy and psych meds exercise is #3 in having benefits for depression and anxiety. I feel so good since I’ve been coming to Fusion – many days I don’t feel like going and the first 10 mins I’m thinking, “I knew I didn’t want to do this, it’s hard!” But that always passes and I feel WONDERFUL and accomplished when I’m finished.

Working three jobs, it’s difficult to find the time to workout but I get in over the lunch hour and on weekends. I can’t say enough positive things about Fusion and the staff and teachers. It’s such a great group of people who work and workout there and want to be better not just physically, but mentally and maybe spiritually as well:). I feel supported and appreciated and it’s a very positive atmosphere. Lastly I have done the 30 in 30 challenge twice now successfully and that’s been a great accomplishment for me! I’m proud of my hard work and I feel great mentally, even when there are lots of stressors in my life, Fusion is one of the best things I can do to help me manage my stress and health. Sometimes co-workers say they can’t believe I go get sweaty at lunch every day and wonder how I do it with what else I do in my life. I tell them I CAN do it because I get to go get sweaty at lunch every day! I’m not the hardest body in the place, but that’s okay, I’m pretty strong and have good endurance and always surprise myself, especially when I’m around other people of my age group who are complaining about aches and pains, etc., that I don’t have and I know that’s in big part to coming to Fusion for so long.
