"Being a woman in her 50s, and having had back surgery a number of years ago, I was afraid to even consider working with a trainer. But my younger daughter was getting married and I wanted to 'look good' and be able to dance at her wedding as well as build muscle so that I could continue to handle the physical part of my job and be able to carry my grandchildren someday. So, in July, with the urging of my oldest daughter, I decided to take a chance and started working with NSS.
I started to work out for an hour twice a week. Having these appointments on my calendar and knowing my coach was expecting me to show up was essential for me to keep going. I'll admit that it took me awhile to be able to say this, but now I really do look forward to these sessions!
My coach has been patient and has gradually added more as he felt I could handle it, and he is very encouraging. That said, NSS is also tough and demands the best that I can give and challenges me to go beyond what I think I am capable of doing. The workouts are always changing so I never get bored. It is amazing how many different ways they can come up with to work a muscle! Noonan's has taught me to be aware of and trust my body, and to believe in myself. So many times I'll think there is no way...but then I do it!!
After 10 months, I have lost 12 pounds, 3% fat (I'm now in the 'desirable range'!), one pants size and I have so much more energy. Life is good and I can't wait to see what the future holds!"
