I NEEDED AN EXTRA PUSH

After trying to lose weight on my own over the past few years I came to the conclusion that I needed an extra push as I wasn’t getting the results on my own. I had concerns about joining small group training at Synergy due to several limitations (ankle injury and back pain). My first session was with Sean and he was able to easily modify the routine to accommodate my needs. I quickly learned that all the trainers have extensive knowledge in health and fitness and they safely pushed me further than I ever would on my own. I have never been a fan of the gym but Synergy actually makes me WANT to go and work out. So far I have lost 6 lbs, lowered my body fat by 6%, and lost 3 inches around my waist! They even got me to do my first 5K this year. Thanks to Linnea and the Synergy staff…and let me tell you running was never something I enjoyed! Thank you Synergy for pushing me beyond what I thought I could do!!! I look forward to continued results!

Consider walking for 20 minutes once or twice during the day. There are probably some tasks you can accomplish while standing as well. Some innovative workplaces are even offering standing desks to encourage employees to move more.
