Another PTi client has wrapped up their 16 week program and now has 16 PTi sessions forever. Wendy, a former Friday morning 'Diva', found that a change to her work meant that more travel was involved and hard to find an exercise routine. So she signed up for my 16 week PTi program. 16 weeks of one-on-one PT sessions recorded by me, especially for her.....they're not generic. The brief was to maintain fitness and strength, design some that she can do at home with her equipment; in a standard gymnasium in a motel; in the motel room itself or outdoors just using body weight. So the thinking cap went on, the sessions flowed and here's Wendy's response!
Hi Coll, I just finished my number 16 PTi session and decided that now I have the full set I need to let you know how well you nailed the brief!
As we discussed when I started your PTi, it had been difficult for me to maintain my fitness with the ridiculous and unpredictable travel I do for work, never knowing what, if any fitness equipment will be available at my destination. My health, fitness and productivity all suffered.
But now I have 16 personalised 30 minute work outs that I can pick and choose from depending on where I find myself. I have done PTi #2 that you put together for me in my hotel room with just a sturdy chair as equipment in the pouring rain at 6am in Bourke; right through to a workout requiring a treadmill, kettle bells, and free weights when I am in a fully equipped gym in Canberra; or a session using my TRX at home when I can't make it to the gym here in Coffs. After 16 weeks of the program I feel fantastic and know I will continue to use my bank of workouts on my trusty iPod on a regular basis.
Thanks again for guiding me on my fitness journey. The turning point for me was when I did Personal Training with you a few years ago before my travel schedule was so crazy. You understood your job so well you were able to push me to challenge my body, and I discovered I could do much, much more than I thought I was capable of. This "body confidence" has allowed me to go on and tackle many challenges I would not have dreamed of before, including, as you know, a little bit of adventure travel.
Not a bad spot to be as I hurtle toward my 52nd birthday :)
Thanks again Col
