They’ve said about Katy
Katy has been consistently committed to meeting me where I am with my goals. She’s been there to answer my at-home fitness questions, correct my form, offer suggestions on nutrition, and make me really think about the importance of scheduling time for me and my health. I know that when I’m feeling uncertain, I’ll be met with patience, real concern, and a guaranteed lack of judgement. My time working with Crazy Fit Mama has morphed from weekly classes and personal training sessions to the changes in lifestyle and heart that I needed. I’ve had the pleasure of running races, breaking into impromptu workouts, and really bonding with her and several of the friends I’ve made on this journey. I am by no means at the finish line, but I know now that the only thing that has sidelined me in the past was my own fear and endless list of excuses. Now that I feel truly accountable to my trainer, my class, and myself, there’s no room for past apprehension.
I would just like to tell you that I can’t thank you enough for helping me get to where I am physically today! I would not be able to do half things I can do now, if you hadn’t already helped me physically challenge my body to do some of the things I need to do now after surgery.
You have been my rock & taught me what it looks like to eat healthy. I may not say it often but I greatly appreciate your support & encouragement over the last (almost) 2 years.
One of my best friends had started to go to bootcamp and PiYo with Crazy Fit Mama. She couldn’t help but tell me about how much energy she had, how much easier her second pregnancy was, and how much she just generally felt BETTER thanks to the weekly fitness meetings. Occasionally she’d tell me, “you should come with me!”
I wasn’t fit, so I could easily feel uncomfortable coming into an environment where I was the least advanced, struggling, and embarrassed. I didn’t know what to expect and I tend to get anxious about situations I’m going into blindly. What if we had to team up? What if I wasn’t sporty enough? What if someone pressured me into a program or diet? Right, I thought, I could just not come back. Despite a lot on my mind, I couldn’t come up with a viable excuse to not give it a chance.
I hurt for about four days after that first class. I fell asleep early that night and slept harder than I had in years. I couldn’t drink enough water and I woke up the next day ready to get moving despite my screaming muscles. I was hooked.
Katy and these classes had unknowingly given me the space to explore what I’m capable of without making me feel like I was on an island. I’m not sure how she manages to make me feel autonomous yet completely supported, but I imagine it’s because she genuinely cares about you and your health. Perhaps it’s because she’s easygoing, shows her own struggles, and has fun. Also, she’s just plain good at what she does. I started feeling the strength of my muscles, the stamina, and the mental clarity that came with a good workout.
I’ve got a new outlook on life, an appreciation for my body, and a drive to be a better me simply because Crazy Fit Mama is in my life. That seems out of character for me, someone who’s always prefered to do things by herself, someone who never wanted to commit to “gym life,” someone who scares easily when she isn’t perfect at something on the first try.
I hope by reading this you think about how you treat yourself and how you want to do more for yourself. We all are at different places, have different concerns, and have different goals. If you are looking for support and guidance I would love to see you in class, or you could give Katy a shout out- she’s genuinely invested in helping you create a healthy you. And oh yeah, I feel so good now that I don’t even care that my clothes fit better. Katy, as heartfelt as I can express it, truly, thank you.
