I’ve been a regular client of PureStrength since 2011. It’s the longest (by far) that I have ever stuck with a fitness program, and it’s because it works! What drew me in was the one time a week aspect of the workout. I figured that if I can’t keep a one time a week commitment to my physical health, I might as well give up completely! I injured my back in a car accident when I was 18 and fractured my tailbone twice, so chronic back pain had been a part of my life. It would feel a lot better when I did yoga 3-5 times a week, but that just wasn’t a schedule that I could stick too. In my first pregnancy, my back and hip pain was so bad that I was in physical therapy from my 8th week of pregnancy until well after the baby came. I started at PureStrength, when my first child was almost two, with the goal of strengthening my body before I got pregnant again. It worked, and my back felt stronger and pain-free! I can even do pull-ups, which I read only 5% of women can do, and I never dreamed I would be able to, so to me, this was huge! Two years later, when I got pregnant again, it was so different! Even though I was four years older, it was a breeze! No back pain, no hip pain, and I worked out until I delivered! I should also mention that I only gained 25 pounds the whole pregnancy, and got back in shape immediately. All I do is give it my all, once a week, for 20-30 minutes and in return I’m strong and in shape and have no back pain. Talk about a good use of time!!!
