FROM VOICES OF MEMBERS @ THE ALASKA CLUB

Posted by The Alaska Club | Sep 10, 2020 11:11:04 AM

“For the past 15 years, I’ve been making excuses and saying “one day I’ll get back in the shape.” I decided to invest in myself by working with a trainer at The Alaska Club. I was making awesome progress when the pandemic hit. I spent a couple of months trying to figure out how I could continue my training and stay healthy for my kids while my husband was deployed.

 One day, Hannah gave me a call from the West Club to see if I would be interested in doing some virtual personal training over Zoom. I wasn’t sure how the virtual sessions would work, but my concerns quickly faded when I realized I could still progress, even from home. Hannah continued to push me and formulate workouts just for me. She is able to correct my form and encourage me just as if I were in the gym with her.

I have gained so much strength in these few months, and I can tell a huge difference in my everyday activities and with my agility. My 13-year old talks about how much muscle I have now, and I just hope that I can inspire her to dedicate time and effort to her own fitness as she grows. My confidence and health is worth it, and I’m so glad I can work with Hannah!”                                               

Amanda – Age 43

 


Thank you to the Alaska Club for providing a safe and clean facility and multiple options for exercising. You are the beacon of stability, positivity, and health at this difficult time.                      

Olga – Age 62                                                                 


I was excited when the club reopened. I feel very safe here! It really feels like the club took their time and spent the money to make it a safe place to come back to, and I have no doubt they that extra mile to keep members safe.                                                                                                                                             

John – Age 33                                                                                                                                                        


“I have always dreamed of having a personal trainer and the day came to just sign up and do it, and I’m so excited I did! I use to play college tennis, but haven’t played for 21 years. Recently, I got back into tennis - which is also a great cardio workout. I never had any issues with motivating myself for cardio workouts, but I’ve always struggled with gathering up motivation to weight train, despite working at a fitness club in my early twenties. Now, I look forward to my PT sessions with Hannah. I actually enjoy them more than doing my cardio workouts, including tennis, and everyone knows I love tennis!

I am about to turn 50, and figured I wouldn’t be able to see lots of results except for maybe getting a bit stronger, which would then reflect in my tennis game. I am so thrilled at the progress I have made in toning and building muscle in such a short time - I really can’t believe it. The more workouts I do, the leaner and more muscular I look. It is incredibly fun to see the progress and hard work payoff as results. My trainer pushes me, and sometimes I feel like I can’t do something, but then she proves I can. Hannah is the best trainer ever, and I look forward to every workout. I can’t wait to find out what this almost 50 year old is capable of…”                                                                                                                                     

April – Age 49

                                                                                                                             


I would say to members who haven’t come back yet that they don’t need to be afraid, because this place is very clean and they shouldn’t hesitate to come back. I’m a senior citizen and I feel very safe and comfortable here. It’s important to work out during this time to keep my mind and body in a good space.                                                                                                                                                                     

Connie – Age 69

 


“A few years ago: It was a day like every other. My husband and I made dinner, watched some TV, walked the dog, and went to bed. A week or so later I woke up and had no idea where I was. I hurt everywhere and could barely move my legs. As it turns out, I had severe spinal stenosis and was in the hospital. I have no memory of how I got there (I later learned) and once I got the story my first thought was "I hope I was nice to everyone.” Once discharged, it was on to Cognitive Therapy and Physical Therapy. Progress was slow but I had to do it. I spoke to my Physical Therapist (Brooke) and asked her about exercises that I could do at the gym. I got a trainer and went to work! Now I am doing great! I am done with both physical and cognitive therapies. I was doing well and decided to stick with my training at The Alaska Club. Yvonne and I get together a couple times a week and it's great! Strength, endurance, and weight loss. It's hard but fun - and worth it. Most importantly, this is a lifestyle change, not just a band-aid. I learn more every session. Thank you Alaska Club & thank you Yvonne.”                   

Kimberly – Age 49
