“Being fit makes you feel very powerful; and that’s how I feel now- like I can do anything and nothing can stop me”

Helia Fitness success story Tracy


How many women think that their lives are too busy for exercise with work, kids, and other commitments? Plenty. And while I will admit that I used to be one of those women, I am proud to say that I no longer am.

I’d wanted to make a lifestyle change, as well as a long-term commitment to exercise, for awhile, but with a busy job and a family, making time for exercise was constantly being bumped to the bottom of my lists of things to do.

My turning point was when I realized that I was having difficulty keeping up with my two active children.

I felt like I was never in the mood, or I didn’t have the energy to get out and about with them and do things together. I was letting life’s stresses get the better of me, and was getting more and more unhappy.

In February, I made the decision to work with a personal trainer 3 times a week, knowing that if I had someone counting on me to be there, I would be held accountable and it would be very hard to back-out.

Over the past three months, I have noticed a huge change in my energy levels. Now when I drop my kids off at soccer, I run—not walk—to catch up with them when they forget something.

It takes something inside you to jump-start and dive right into exercise, but once you’ve worked with a trainer you find that it’s harder to stop than it was to begin, you see all of the benefits of activity materialize almost immediately.

My experience has changed my life, and each session I do brings me closer and closer to integrating exercise and physical activity as a part of my everyday life.
