"This is where my fitness process started. I was just training to move and feel better. This was something I sent to Coach Ed one of my first weeks at RD.
A couple of years later, when my husband was diagnosed with cancer, I realized how profound this was. We have been on a two year roller coaster of treatment, surgery, recurrence and more treatment.
I credit training at RD, and learning to trust in the process, and being patient with the process on the way to achieving my personal fitness goals with helping me handle the stress and frustration that I’m dealing with in my personal life. Really, when you think about it, treating cancer is the ultimate “process” and my job as caregiver is to stay strong, sane and focused for my husband.
RD has also served as an escape for me; a release valve. For four hours a week, I can suspend reality and work on improving myself. I am physically stronger and more energized than I have ever been in my life and I think that’s a great thing to be able to say at 47. I’m so jazzed to keep improving. Spending time at the gym elevates my mood and makes me a better human with more to give."
