Fitness Patron of the Month

Christy Fox

In early 2018, I was at a point in my life when I decided to start lifting weights more. After doing some research, I discovered Les Mills and a program called Bodypump. I watched a few classes on YouTube and decided to give it a try. I searched for classes near me and found that the Carbon Valley Rec Center offered them. My very first class was a Monday evening. I walked in super excited and walked out thinking, "What did I just do to my body?" The following week I tried Suzi's class at noon on Thursday. At the time I was doing relief work at a vet clinic and when I got hired full-time my boss let me choose my weekday off. I chose Thursdays off so that I can do Bodypump. I have been a regular Thursday attendee ever since. This class is exactly what I needed to keep me motivated. Even on the days when I don't feel like doing it, I always leave feeling happy that I came to class. It might only be once a week but I honestly don't know what I would do without this class.
