Student Spotlight: 5AM Laura!

lauraIt is my pleasure to announce this weeks edition of our Student Spotlight. I have had the opportunity to watch this woman transform herself over the past six months. Laura has changed her life style and for that I am so proud of her. She gets in here and she trains hard then she goes home and she takes care of “The Other 165”. She understands that nutrition plays a major role in results and she has proved that she is making it happen!

Here is what Laura has to say:

“Alienated. That is how I felt six months ago before I started coming to Get Fit. My body just did not respond. I had aches and pains here and there. My heels hurt and I wondered, is it plantar fasciitis? My back was in pain, did I hurt it?  I had constant headaches, is my cancer back, but now in my brain? That is how I felt before I started Get Fit NH. I did not know where to start. I timidly decided to try the two weeks, keeping it a secret. I did not even tell the closest people in my life. I feared their support would feel like pressure. In those first few days it felt like I couldn’t do anything! But everyone was supportive and I started feeling better right away. I started to have more energy and my mood improved, I wasn’t chasing the evil illness behind every sore muscle!

It’s been almost six months since I started at Get Fit and I feel better than I have in years. I would like to say I’ve lost all the weight I wanted to lose, but I lose my keys, I lose my head a lot, but the weight I am evicting I never thought I would feel better while working to get better, I thought I would have to wait until I lost those pounds to feel like myself again. Now my face is starting to peek out again and I am more myself than I have been in a long time. And it’s all thanks to the people here, all the smiling people at the break of dawn. Who knew there were so many people outside their beds at that time?! All the ones that nudge me every morning to keep pushing. They are the backbone of my improvement, from coaches to all the “hellos” and “good jobs” and of course Marie, who loves to scold me when I miss a day, or two. Thanks to all of you Get Fit crowd for making all these necessary things happen.”
We are so proud to have Laura with us at 5 AM! Laura has lost 45 pounds in 6 months- hard work, dedication, and discipline! Great job, Laura!
