I was not sure how a small group fitness program would benefit me. I've either had the one on one personal trainer experience or large class setting at the YMCA. I looked online at the website and saw a lot of people having fun. When I met with Jen for an introduction to the program, I was greeted by members working out that I had never met, but said hello to me. Everyone was happy and very friendly.
I've always been an active person and luckily, not on any medications. What's most different about my life after joining ORF is that I feel like I am connected to a group of people that have similar interests that are very friendly and fun to be around.
My biggest obstacle is Time, and excuses, for not making my fitness a priority. I know that Mike and Jen put a lot of effort into the programs and I enjoy the variety of exercises. Because ORF is so different from the typical gym, I look forward to being there and getting a good workout with everyone! So, the excuse of, "I've had a long day at work and I just want to go home", gets pushed aside with "I GET to go to ORF and have some fun!"
I am comfortable with working out with weights that I had never used before. Its the best part of my day!
