I could talk forever about what joining FastTrack Fit Camp has done for me and my life but will keep it as short as I can.
I am ONLY talking about myself because I have a burning desire and passion to help others who are perhaps struggling in life, like I was, and are trying to find their way, whether it be alcoholism, depression, bereavement, low self esteem, obesity, fear of group work out, or zillions of other reasons etc.
Before I joined FastTrack just moving forward for me was the biggest anti-depressant in the world, I already did lots of walking with my dogs but joining Fit Camp introduced me to a world I never knew existed, a road to well being and self discovery, fitness and and an escape from troubles.
I have been a member since day one in November 2009 and have now completed 560 sessions. After the first session I was literally crippled and it was a 50/50 decision as to whether I would go back for session two, but I’m so so glad I did – and the rest is history.
I am so blessed to have made so many true friends and am deeply deeply inspired on a daily basis by people trying to do a full press up, running their first 1k without stopping or running their first marathon.
Although I was 43 I had never really been fit in my life despite intermittent efforts at personal training, cycling and swimming. I never understood what the word ‘fit’ really meant, well I can tell you I certainly do now and it’s all thanks to attending Fast Track Fit camp .
Despite believing, like so many of you, that I was a ‘non runner’ I have gone on to run many long distance running events and ran through 50 miles for the first time in May 2014. If you had told me this in November 2009 I would have said you were bonkers.
I also completed the 100 press up challenge purely based on the months and months of upper body work at FTFC.
I am very grateful to FTFC and all the new friends/campers who have helped me along the way, there is still much to do, this work will never be done, we all have to keep striving to be the best, fittest and happiest we can be.
God bless everyone, I think the world of you all, if you need me I’m here.
