Joanne 2nd from Right after a hot one during Summer Hero Week!

How did you hear about CF? One of my clients was in the salon and talking about CF

When did you start coming to CF?
It will be three years in January

What kept you coming back?

The inspiration from Chris, I didn’t think I could do this but Chris gave me encouragement, Every time I would think I must be nuts at my age what am I doing, I didn’t know any one I was afraid of making mistakes, But Chris said I wouldn’t do everything perfect, some things better than others.  Everyone in the class was so helpful; even though I didn’t know them that well, they looked out for me , that’s what Chris says: help your team!

What was the most challenging part about starting / sticking with CF?

I saw results in my strength it was amazing

What has been your biggest success since starting? I never would have ever thought I could do 50 jumping jacks – wow!

What has been the most surprising benefit to your commitment to CF and to your fitness?

I feel good about myself

How has CF helped you outside of class?

I get on a ladder change ceiling lights with no problem I feel strong for my age.  When I had an injury this year the doctor said I healed fast because I was fit, wow me fit yea.  I also don’t feel pain in my legs any more.  I always had a hard time sleeping because they hurt so much, but not any more.

What do you like most?

I see people in the salon younger than me and I am amazed how much more fit I am then they are.

Favorite exercise?

Dead lifts!


Any words of wisdom?

Don’t be a couch potato.  Get up and move!
Any other thoughts?

Don’t be afraid whether you feel you’re going to measure up or not.  Give it a shot.  I’m glad I did!
