Congratulations to Greg, Wild’s May Client of the Month!
Greg is very dedicated when it comes to his workouts! We are so proud of all his hard work and look forward to his positive attitude at all the workouts!
What achievements are you most proud of?
Keeping to my workout schedule. I have a job that involves long hours and an unpredictable schedule. But I don’t miss deadlines and always keep appointments. When I started at Wild in September, I figured my best bet was to treat the workouts like an appointment. If my work schedule makes me miss one, I schedule it for another time that day or for the next day. I have been able to get my planned number of workouts in each week, even when I have had to work around job-related travel.
What do you like most about Wild Workouts and Wellness?
I like the variety of the exercises, which keeps them from becoming a grind. Lots of friendly faces among the clients. The coaches have all been great. I also like the outdoor classes and the various special events. My daughter is waiting for the next family workout. (She can easily out-burpee me … )
What advice would you give to other Wild peeps?
Scale up. I started with two days a week, then added a third, then a fourth (in the form of a specialty class). More recently, I have added some on-my-own workouts on non-boot camp days. Similarly, I didn’t start with all diet-related changes at once – I have been working them in step by step. Adding one thing at a time seems doable and continuing that approach over time can make a big difference.
Do you have a favorite song or type of music for working out?
Honestly, most of the time I don’t much notice the music. One can’t really work out to much of anything pre-1980s, and since those were my high school years, those are a good bet. I prefer things with a harder edge, even the occasional Eminem.
Do you have a favorite exercise? What do you like about it? Least favorite? What don’t you like about it?
I don’t really have a favorite. What I like most are the boot camps where we switch frequently between exercises. That way, if there is one I don’t much like, at least I know it won’t last long. On the not-so-liked side, I haven’t quite figured out Turkish Get Ups and windmills. Not flexible enough to really do them well..
What are some challenges or goals you are currently working on?
I have never been much of a runner – something my high school track coach would certainly attest to (mile and 800 meters). But I feel like I need to improve my cardio. So, I have started doing some running on the days I don’t do a boot camp, and have signed up for Run Wild on Thursday nights. I am aiming for a 5K early in the summer and hopefully a 10K (or at least Al’s Run) by fall.
