“I feel stronger, leaner, meaner and cannot wait to see what’s next. ”
A Groupon special brought me to Vigor Ground Fitness for Team Training and I was hooked after the first session. Prior to, cardio dance fitness was my only other outlet for strengthening. Until I understood what strengthening and conditioning really entailed, that is.
My sis invited me to join her Small Group Training session with Coach Theo, and that was where I found my mind and body challenged to the brink. I’ve always been a Lean Little Miss and never considered personal training to be a need or even a want. If I can maintain my slender physique, why add another activity on an already-full plate? If it’s not a necessity, it’s not a priority. But that outlook was quickly humbled.
Coach Theo guided me and fellow clients through a series of exercises, one more progressively ambitious than the next. None of which was out of reach, however. If ever I felt my limit stretched, scaling back with a modified workout was met with kindness, not defeat. Either that or an extra nudge of encouragement was provided to galvanize my strength in ways that I didn’t think physically possible. That’s what I call Vigor Strong.
The conclusion of the Groupon and trial period left me with a choice to make: leave and find other fitness pastures or sign on for more of the Theo Special. Without hesitation, my decision came easy. I was convinced that investing in further SGT sessions were, indeed, worth every penny. Coach Theo’s patience coupled with a professional charm made each workout fun and full of laughter (“nom nom nom!”).
My mental and physical stamina were constantly stimulated with each new, customized exercise menu, and my voracious appetite appreciates the unpredictability of each meal. As a result, my body has undergone a transformation, sculpting definitive grooves that I didn’t think possible. A booty lift unseen since my grade school days! Chiseled biceps and triceps that make me want to flex in the mirror and smirk with satisfaction! I feel stronger, leaner, meaner and cannot wait to see what’s next.
What Coach Theo also provides is the mental resilience to work through every challenge. Call it an activation of my inner stubbornness or his ability to motivate with fervor, I am now able to hold a plank position a bit seconds longer, put in a few more chin-ups, sprint a little faster, upgrade to 52-pound kettlebells. In each hand. Deadlifting. (maybe I should mention that I weigh in at all of only 108 pounds). Never would I have trusted myself to accomplish these feats before. But lo and behold! It’s amazing what a little guidance can do to help me achieve fitness goals that I didn’t think to set for myself before.
Would I recommend Coach Theo to potential clients? Not unless those clients are prepared to put in the same amount of work that he will greet them with. Otherwise, I believe his talent to be so valuable that it would be a shame to see his effort neglected. He has the tenacity and brawn to provide a healthy lifestyle for all those who seek it, and I enthusiastically extend my highest recommendation for his world-class service.
