“When I signed up for the MS Fitness Challenge, I thought it would be a great way to get myself back into the gym. I chose “Inspiration” thinking I could be inspired to work out and get a little stronger. What I got out of the challenge was so much more. When I arrived for my first training session, I realized how intimidated by the gym I was. It had become a foreign place to me and I was scared…. Thinking, “what have I got myself into?”
Week2, I found myself in tears. I was unable to do things I thought I should be able to do. Cat was so reassuring and supportive…. that things would get better. And they did, I am able to walk into the gym and know how to properly use equipment with confidence. I know how to put together my own workout in addition to using all the different workouts Cat made for me.
The MS Fitness Challenge has been a wonderful opportunity for me…so much more than just getting back into the gym. Cat has been a great supporter and teacher. Not only am I eating better (still a work in progress), but she has shown me what I CAN do physically and ways to adapt things I struggle with.
My MS limits me, but it doesn’t stop me anymore.
Thank you MS Fitness Challenge, Fitness Evolution and Cat……
I’ve been inspired to workout…. And now I know I can!!! Thank you!!!!” -Julie Henderson
