A Six Pack Me!!! Never would of believed it. That all changed when I met a very special lady backed by a very different kind of fitness company.
My name is Elisa and I just celebrated my 50th birthday and I am in the best shape of my life.
On September 2, 2014 I decided to try, one more time, at achieving my fitness goals. I was tired and exhausted and seriously not wanting to celebrate much. I was a nice Italian girl who had let herself get lost in her roles as mother, wife, daughter etc. My search led me to a new fitness studio called Hourglass. So on September 2, 2014 my girlfriend and I signed up for a trial class. I was turning 50 in 6 months and I realized that it was now or never. I left that first class with so much hope and adrenaline for what the future might hold.
From day one Sue provided me with a vision for the future and a plan to achieve it. “Just trust me”, she would say. “Come on, you can do this”, she would belt out during class. “The only competition is that lady you are looking at in the mirror right now”, she would point out. She provided coaching in a compassionate way that enabled me to shatter my own mental barriers, which resulted in my total body transformation.
After 7 months of following her nutrition plan and workouts I am so proud to say that I have a six pack. Yes at 50, a very sexy 6 pack. I went from an XL to XS, the inches just started dropping off. My mental clarity and commitment just got stronger and stronger.
Every step of the way she has been encouraging me and supporting me with her simple, “You see I knew you could do it”. My daughter and son are very proud of my accomplishments and constantly want to have plank competitions with me. They are quick and proud to point out to their friends, “Look my mom has a 6 pack”.
Hourglass is designed for women, their program is a real no nonsense program that works. It’s fun and it’s a community of women that are striving for their personal best. They coordinate great events that keep life interesting and rewarding.
I cannot even count how many times I have thanked Sue for helping me achieve something that has eluded me for years. She knows her stuff and she calls it like it is. She has it down to a science. I am grateful for her skills and fortunate to have finally stopped wasting my money and energy on programs that are made to look good on paper, but worthless on the gym floor. Thanks Sue.
