(For Reference, ATF: ASPIRE Total Fitness | N: Nicole)
1.) ATF: What was your motivation to begin personal training with Krisha?
N: My kids are my main motivation. I have a 16, 14, and 10 year old. I was stressed out working, commuting and gaining weight. I wanted to keep up my husband and my kids and what I was doing was not working…at all.
2.) ATF: What was your first training session like?
N: My first session was scary — I didn’t know what to expect and I was nervous but SO READY!
3.) ATF: Do you remember how sore you were the first week? Or was it not too bad?
N: I recall being so sore that everything hurt. It hurt to sit down, stand up, sneeze… Literally everything hurt. BUT I knew I was on the right track and that my body was changing!
4.) ATF: How man-days per week do you train? How many days per week do you workout in between?
N: Today—I train with Krisha one day per week and HIIT at home or take classes for a total of 6 days a week, allowing myself one day of rest in a given week. I am always excited to get past that one rest day. I’ve always been athletic but I’ve NEVER looked forward to working out until now.
5.) ATF: Which classes do you take at ASPIRE? What does your typical weekly workout regimen look like?
N: Krisha has helped me set up my workout schedule as follows:
Monday—I sprint or HIIT at home/outside with Hubs and my son.
Tuesday—is also a sprint/HIIT day
Wednesday—I always take the 5:30am HIIT class with Erin
Thursday—Is my Krisha training day
Friday—Rest day or HIIT Boody Blast
Saturday—Bodypump at 8am
Sunday—another run day OR I double down with Adrianne and the Body Flow followed by the Strength Cardio Fusion—LOVE those two classes too!
6.) ATF: How has your nutrition mindset changed? What kind of nutrition program has Krisha recommended for you? How has your food impacted your fitness goals?
N: MACROs!!!! I primarily eat a paleo diet—No wheat, beans, gluten, processed foods/sugar, soy or corn. VERY limited dairy and alcohol intake. Food was/is the hardest part to my whole life style change. Thankfully, Krisha has created a Macro program just for me! I am able to spurge within my Macros and still stay on track, it is completely nonrestrictive. When I’m out of Macros for the day I’m done…NO MORE. I don’t ever feel hungry, unsatisfied or like I’m missing out. Dish/Krisha has opened my eyes to MANY new products that fit my Macros/Paleo life style but are delish.
7.) ATF: What has been the most rewarding part of your success?
N: I am sincerely thankful for Krisha and to have the support of other women who share the same goals, motivation and genuinely are excited for each other’s successes. The energy that IS Aspire keeps me coming back again and again—Keeps me excited to come back the next day.
My mom and sister-in-law have started coming regularly to Aspire because of the changes they see in me. I’m healthier, happier, stronger and I’ve lost a little bit of weight too BONUS!
I recommended Aspire every time someone asks me anything about my diet or workout schedule.
