What a surprise and honor it was to receive the His & Her Fitness Client of the Year award at the annual holiday party. This is certainly not something that was on my list of goals for the year, but certainly was very much appreciated.
Receiving this award reminds me that sometimes when you set a goal, your setting out to achieve the goal may result in your attaining something totally unexpected. In June I set a goal of completing the New York City Marathon to be held on November 3. This would be my 13th marathon, but my first marathon in almost 11 years and, if you have ever seen me, you know I don't have the physique of most runners. Add to that, I am 65 years old. Anyway, I set out in mid- June with my run/walk training regimen four days a week along with my twice a week strength training at His & Her Fitness. I encountered a few physical ailments along the way, but Christina and my chiropractor got me through those setbacks. When November 3rd rolled around I was able to complete the marathon, although not in the time I had hoped to achieve. That said, I did finish the 26.2 mile event, raised over $11,000 for The Leukemia & Leukemia Society, had a great time, got in good shape and lo and behold received the Client of the Year award which I think was at least in part due to my marathon effort. How about that! I think it's good for everyone to set goals for themselves at least periodically and if they are health/diet/exercise related Christina and her team are there to advise, guide and push you along. Setting a goal usually means you'll be making sacrifices to attain the goal, but with the right attitude and a good team behind you it might surprise you what you too can accomplish. Thank you H & H!
