AbsoluteFIT builds confidence in more ways than I ever expected.
I’ve written a lot about how my journey through AbsoluteFIT has built up my skills and confidence in the gym, and really, it has — but the thing that people might not realize is that the work you do and the gains you make in the studio are only part of the picture.
The surprise is that all of that confidence, earned incrementally workout by workout, seeps into so many parts of the rest of your non-gym life!
Take stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) — I’ve done it before (even blogged about it here), but this year, when I did it in Hawaii, I realized that I had no fear about it. I knew I could control the board, I knew I was strong enough to go out not only by myself but also with my kids, and that even if I fell off, I could handle the situation.
And “handling the situation” is such a huge part of adult life in general, whether it’s work, home, kids, social interactions, figuring out how to get from Point A to Point B in a new place — the list is endless, and I realized that getting strong enough to do this:
… makes me strong enough to handle the rest of it.
So let’s get into the studio and prepare to take on whatever life throws at us!
Here’s the class schedule – I’ll bet many of these times would fit into your fitness schedule 🙂
Lydia Markoff is an Almaden-area writer, mom, and fitness enthusiast whose AbsoluteFIT journey has resulted in major strength gains, nutrition education, approximately 25 fewer pounds on the scale, and dozens of new workout friends. She can be found in the AbsoluteFIT studio three to five times a week — it’s basically her second living room, at this point, but with fewer Legos, Harry Potter wands, and Wimpy Kid books.
