A fellow health coach shared this quote with me a few years ago and it has stuck with me. In today’s blog post, I want to share about one of my amazing personal training clients who has really brought this phrase to life.
Tricia started training with me in February 2022. One of the most important things that Tricia wanted my help with was to be able to plant and maintain her garden. She absolutely loves her garden and had struggled in the past with stamina and strength.
In our early days of training, Tricia and I worked on movements like incline push ups, bodyweight/assisted squats, glute bridges and incline planks. She regularly dealt with knee and back pain. My goal in her programming was to help her get stability where she needed it and gain strength.
We have been working together for two hours every week over the last 6 months. It has been truly amazing to watch her grow in strength, stamina, and confidence.
She is doing squats with weight. She has been deadlifting and we’ve been able to increase her weight at a steady rate from 30 pounds to 90 pounds! She has been lifting heavy things at home and feeling great in her garden. Her back and knee pain have decreased tremendously.
One of my favorite wins was just a few weeks ago. We have been practicing the Turkish get up and she was able to complete the whole movement. She said, “That was the first time I have got up off of the floor without using my hands in YEARS.”
My favorite thing about Tricia’s journey is that she didn’t have to do some major life overhaul. She chose to invest in herself and spend two hours each week with me. She’s reaping amazing results just from consistently showing up. Little by little, a little has become a lot.
So incredibly proud of you Tricia! We’ve got even more ground to cover, so get ready!
