I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life. My senior year in college, I moved to Massachusetts to complete my clinical training. Soon after moving, I started walking everyday and began losing weight. I joined a gym that winter to keep up my activity. When I moved back to Vermont after graduating in spring 2007, my mom introduced me to Spinning. She had already been Spinning for a year. In the fall, my mom and I joined Duke’s Fitness Center, and we got our very first weight-training workout from Nate Yandow. I quickly fell into the routine of going to the gym before work, and taking classes here and there as my schedule allowed. Last fall, I was looking for a new challenge and started working out every week with Chrystal.
Now three years later, I am a gym regular. I find that I sleep better and just feel better when I go to the gym. One of the biggest challenges I have faced is the scale. Overcoming that number can be the hardest thing, and there is nothing more frustrating when working so hard and not seeing any numerical results. It took some time, but now I measure my success by other means than my own weight. I know that I am toning up and building my muscle even if the scale doesn’t seem to reflect that.
I am always seeking new challenges and Duke’s is always willing to provide them, whether by working out with Chrystal every week, or in an advanced Spinning class.
