I joined Wright Training when we moved to town 18 months ago.  I was always tired, unmotivated to get back in shape, fighting chronic hip/back pain, and desperate for change.  Ski Fit 2019 was my first time consistently back in the gym since having babies and I saw big improvements within weeks. I came back for Bike/Run Fit and in June, two mom friends asked me to start running the elk refuge on Saturday mornings. I’d never run more than 30 minutes at a time and I never enjoyed it, but I didn’t want to miss out. This time I was hooked – it was actually fun because I wasn’t completely smoked after three miles, thanks to my time in the Gym. I ran a half marathon in September and felt stronger than ever during 2020 Ski Fit. For the first time in years, I’m completely pain free, waking up energized, and craving workouts. Next goal: full marathon!
