Hi! My name is Margaret Armour and I Was Ready to be Fit... Again.
Fred came into my life accidentally, as I watched his influence on my business partner, who was working to regain fitness and control weight. I am in my early sixties and believed I had done everything there was to be done with my personal fitness. A bad knee, creeping arthritis, a plethora of new aches, pains and stiffness, and a shoulder injury at the gym had me discouraged.
I started slowly with Fred and found his approach very helpful. I learned early that Fred listened, and had the knowledge, interest and presence to look beyond the obvious. He raises questions that deepen my understanding, and fuel my motivation.
The work we have done is best described as strengthening my body. I want to be clear. I have always hated weight training and I am determined enough to do what is best for me, even if I actively dislike it. However, since working with Fred, something dramatic is happening, I look forward to doing it! I see the difference in my posture, my balance, and feel it in my daily activities. I am a stronger woman, and I like it!
Let me also say that I have discovered that I LOVE being coached. I have never had a long one to one relationship that instructs, motivates, and supports in this manner. The benefits to my body are obvious, but there are amazing benefits for my psyche as well. I leave each weekly session positively glowing!
I believe now that my fitness, health and wellness are not totally limited by my age or aging. My relationship with Fred gives me confidence. The rest is up to me.
