1) Why did you join Hourglass?  I wasn’t getting the intense workout I really wanted from my current workouts, so when  I participated in a workshop that Lyzabeth ran at the 2012 Diva Girl Conference and experienced Booty Blasters for the first time, I knew she was going to give me the workout I was looking for.  That short workshop gave me the motivation I needed and I decided to sign up. I’ve been hooked ever since!
2) What was your favorite part of the program? The variety! I love all the tools and toys, and I love getting outside in the summer.  Lyzabeth and all of her teachers are great at switching things up and keeping us on our toes.  I haven’t been bored yet!  I also love the atmosphere when you get to class for the first time, everyone was so friendly and welcoming that I really felt like I belonged there.
3) What are your thoughts on the social aspect of the program?  I think they’re great!  This is the first program I’ve come across that actively encourages interaction with my classmates outside of the class itself.  It’s a fabulous way to get to know one another better and encourage and support each other even more.
4) How did you reach your three month goal?  I did my best to eat clean and do my own additional workouts at home.  I also tried to get more active in general by taking stairs when I could, walking to do my errands, and even just standing instead of sitting on the subway.  I learned the value of scheduling a ‘cheat day’ with my eating plan – it’s so much easier to beat temptation when you know you have planned to allow yourself a treat later.  I sought advice, encouragement, and support from my friends and family, and especially from my Hourglass family, when I felt like I might slip up and they all kept me on track.  I couldn’t be more thankful!
5) What is your advice to others trying to reach their fitness goals? Don’t give up!  Even when things seem really tough, reach out to your support community and use their encouragement to remind yourself that you CAN do it, no matter how hard it seems at the time.
