We have three aspects of health we must take care of: mental, spiritual, and of course physical. Now, this is not by any means a revolutionary statement or an exploration into unchartered territory; it is FACT- a fact that I had only been giving half my attention to. I suffered from a car accident a few years ago that caused a ligament on my spine to be torn, two discs to bulge out of place, and unaligned my hips which caused my right leg to randomly pop out of place. I over compensated for the injury to my leg and put more pressure on my back, which put more pressure on my knees and caused an endless vicious cycle of pain. I tried months of therapy and treatment that to no surprise failed. I came to accept that the pain was just part of my life forever. I became even more sedentary, my weight increased, my strength decreased, and overall my attitude was sub-par.
In January of this year, my bosses presented our group with the idea of a fitness competition, a “biggest loser” if you will. It was a 90 day fitness challenge that was not based solely on weight loss, but on 3-4 personal goals you set for yourself. We all accepted and the rest was history. Well, maybe not exactly…
I joined TELOS in February and completed the Ortho-Kinetics® Assessment with Daniel, and within just two sessions of working with him, my back felt so much better. I also became addicted to ZUMBA®-addicted to the point I look forward to Mondays- who else says that? The Monday class is moving to Tuesdays this month, so I’ll be looking forward to Tuesdays now! Since February I have lost 40 pounds, dropped 3 pant sizes, increased strength, and most of all gained a new attitude.
The TELOS facility offers so much more than just your typical gym membership; it is a strong community with the most cheerful and dedicated employees who greet me on a first name basis, offers an array of classes, and not to mention the fantastic locker rooms with all their goodies.
TELOS really has it all!
