What got you started with Plates on Plates Fitness?

I had gained weight after having kids and had gotten up to a size 16.  I started walking again and lost 20 pounds.  But I didn't want to just lose weight, I wanted to put on muscle and be fit.  I wanted to feel good in my skin.

What motivates you?

My motivation is hoping that as I get older, I get better.  I hope that if I take care of my health, that I will be able to enjoy my life for as long as I can.

What changes have you seen in yourself since starting?

Working out gives me an opportunity to get out of my head and have a little bit of fun because those who know me know I'm very analytical.    Just the other day, I was box jumping and on the third round, I choked.  I thought to myself, I can't do that and went back to stepping up and down on the box.  But I took a step back, got my breath and jumped on the box and finished the AMRAP.  Afterwards, I found myself laughing and having fun at the process; and thinking ok how soon do I move up in height.

What's your biggest tip or piece of advice for a Plates on Plates newbie? 

Working out is a lifestyle, commit to what you can do for the rest of your life in exercise and diet.  So in the beginning, I only came about 3 times a week.  Now when time allows, I get in 5 classes a week; and the consistency has paid off.
