I was recently asked, “What did you think about the gym before you started working out with Coach Rob?”
Well — let’s just say I didn’t like to think about the gym, which was totally obvious by the state of my body. I would occasionally get on the treadmill or elliptical but not without my reservations. I mean, I was FAT!
Imagine this if you will. I was overweight and walked into the gym in baggy workout clothes, I jump on a treadmill between “Workout Wendy” in her cute form-fitting ensemble and “Fitness Frank,” who is so muscular it’s a bit distracting. Walking on the treadmill and keeping my balance on the elliptical needed to be my main focus, not what others thought of me or how I looked, but it is human nature. We all want to put our best foot forward but when you get winded after a few minutes of working out, you wonder who noticed.
Although I would attempt to boost my heart rate and get in a cardio workout, I was too intimidated to even approach the free weights area, so I made minimal progress.
Now, one year in to my journey with Coach Rob, I walk in to the gym with a plan and confidence. I know exactly what exercises I am going to do and have no problem busting out some cardio and pumping iron with “Wendy” and “Frank!” I am all in! #TeamKilla BAM!!!
