In the midst of COVID-19 and quarantine, Martha was gifted some personal training sessions by her daughter (who is a member at Recursive!) Despite the fact that Martha is located in Texas, we get together twice a week for Remote Personal Coaching and she is feeling the rewards of working out.
Why did you choose Recursive?
The sessions were a gift from my daughter who is a member of the Recursive community. This was not only the most unusual gift I have received but had doubts concerning the value of distance training. That changed after visiting with the instructor who explained how the sessions would proceed. She said they would match my levels of progress.
What is your favorite thing about working out virtually at Recursive?
The sessions are according to my schedule and done in the privacy of my home. The one on one instruction is ideal when learning a new skill.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had the last few months?
Shaking off the idea that because I am a senior and have led a sedentary lifestyle that I would be wasting time and money trying.
What is your biggest accomplishment in the last month?
I am beginning to feel the rewards of regular exercise so I do more at the end of the day.
How has Recursive changed your life?
I am feeling physically better. It is having a positive domino effect on my body and in my daily life.
What advice do you have for people who are nervous to get started?
Take the challenge of doing something new. No one starts at the expert level. Be patient, pay close attention to instruction, listen to your body and fight the normal urge to skip work outs.
