If you attend our evening classes, you surely know Cathy. She has been a staple at TwinTown for almost as long as we’ve been open, and has since proven herself to be one of the toughest people I know.
The success that she has pushed herself to achieve is almost hard to comprehend. It’s one thing to be a motivated person and allow a coach to push you, but to have an internal drive that pushes you the distance that it has for her is truly remarkable. Those of you that have seen the transformation over the years know exactly what I’m talking about.
Achieving the amazing weight loss that she has is worthy of all given praise, but I’ve been able to watch a shift in her that is much more than just a transformation in her physical body. She is now the happiest I have ever seen her, her confidence is at a (seemingly) all time high, and there is no challenge she won’t take on.
While we are fortunate to have many very driven members at our gym, Cathy still manages to stand out even amongst such a motivated group. Never one to make excuses, she regularly asks for travel workouts so she can stay on track even when she’s out of town. While some might welcome the opportunity to have an excuse to miss some gym time, she stays responsible for her own goals and pushes herself to achieve them – no matter what.
Cathy is the definition of resilient. In my time working with her, I have seen her have her fair share of ups and downs. Whether the kind of trouble that life sometimes throws your way, or a set-back in the gym, nothing has taken her eyes off the prize. Even when things are not going her way, she always shows up with a smile on her face, ready to get to work.
There just aren’t enough good things to be said about Cathy. She is a hero of mine and a constant source of inspiration to those around her. I am SO proud of her and all that she has accomplished, and I am honored to be able to work with her on a regular basis.
