I started the Strength for Life program in January 2015, as I had become concerned at my loss of strength and motivation to exercise. From being a "gym junkie" and long distance runner in my younger days and being a bit of a fitness fanatic in the later years, I'd become more sedentary that I'd been for years. When I retired, I was still busy in other ways but not dedicated to physical strength routines. I saw that Core Value Fitness was to run the Strength for Life groups and decided to give it a go. So glad I did. I am still not as fit as I was 10 years ago, but feel much better than I did 15 months ago. Not only does the program affect physical improvement but it also improves self esteem and confidence.
We have a lot of fun while we work out and though we laugh a lot we take our "work" seriously. It's good to be back "pumping iron" and pushing limits - though sometimes I confess I'd rather be reading a good book. But I go back each week - its a discipline - and am always glad when I do so if anyone is thinking it might be a good idea for them to get involved, JUST DO IT.
You wont be on your own unless you choose to be (socially that is), the instructors keep an eye on what you do to correct technique and to introduce new routines so boredom can't catch hold! We support and encourage each other and as I've said before, we have a lot of laughs
