Client of The Week: Cathleen!
Congratulations to our Client of the Week, Cathleen!
I started with Jada Blitz back in 2017. When I was having trouble walking after undergoing a surgery that damaged the nerves in my lower left leg, I started to gain weight. I was previously very active and because of this setback, I started to become depressed. I looked to Jada Blitz and the personal trainers to help get me back on my feet.
MY GOALS & BECOMING A PERSONAL TRAINING CLIENT
Unable to lift my foot, I needed to re-learn how to stand up from a sitting position, climb stairs, and build endurance. Not only did I do it, but thanks to Eric and the trainers at Jada Blitz, I exceeded it. Currently, my goals are to keep fighting and keep gaining strength.
Eric has been awesome to work with. I call him the “evil genius” because he keeps me motivated while finding new ways to push me forward. He makes the 30 minutes fly by. Eric keeps things fun while putting me through a grueling routine. I love that he keeps pushing me and encouraging me- especially when I’m feeling low on myself. He also is creative in the way that he uses my friendship with a fellow client as a friendly competition between the two of us.
In addition to the hard work, Eric and I have so much fun together. I think the day he taught me the new young lingo of “no cap” and “glizzy” has to be one of my favorite memories with him. He keeps me laughing, even through a tough workout.
One important lesson I have learned through training is the journey is never going to be easy, but it’s worth the fight.
Eric is awesome, but I also need to thank Dan and Will who helped me get here prior. Eric is now getting me to the finish line. All the trainers I’ve been working with through this journey have been incredible!
ADVICE FOR ANYONE THINKING ABOUT TRYING PERSONAL TRAINING
It is going to be hard, you are going to be sore, and you may want to quit. BUT then you show up and it’s easy and it motivates you.
THE FACILITY & STAFF
I love the Jada staff they are friendly and fun and willing to help out where they can.
MEET ERIC STEINWACHS, CPT & GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR AT JADA BLITZ FITNESS
Training with Cathleen has been fantastic. She always keeps the workouts fun and brings a great attitude to each session. She’s always willing to try anything and has a great work ethic. I love working with Cathy because of her go-getter attitude. She’s had many obstacles along her fitness journey but they haven’t derailed her at all. She’s got a great ability to take any exercise that is challenging and absolutely crush it. My favorite memories we share is teaching her all the current lingo of the youth and the bands- those are her favorite.
I’m very proud to be part of Cathy’s fitness journey and the steps she has taken to reach the point we have so far. The best part is that she will keep pushing herself to new heights every time. There is no slowing her down and I can’t wait to see what the next bit brings for her.
