Meet Colleen Fitzgerald! Hear how Treadfit helped her take control ?? Keep it up Colleen!
“2019 was the year I was turning the dreaded 5.0.!! I was sitting on the beach over 4th of July that year in my tight Land’s End skirt suit and decided it was time to take control! I started at Treadfit with my sweet college kid who inspired me. I had heard of Treadfit through my old fellow Mother McAuley friends and was doubly motivated to support a Might Mac alum’s business. So my daughter and I started going together about 1-2x a week. We quickly figured out I was a morning person and she wasn’t, so I signed up for the 6am classes, did my first challenge and then was hooked! What really changed me was the Focus on You Challenge which I did in October/November. Treadfit taught me how to exercise but also how to eat –calorie and macronutrient wise.
Seven months and several other challenges later, I am down 10 lbs and multiple inches; I went from 5lb weights up to 12-15 lbs and run my sprints at 8.0! I have never felt better and YES at 50! Now I attend the 5am classes and average 5-6x a week. I feel like when I don’t go, my day is incomplete. I exercise before my 4 kids even wake up and before the crazy work day starts.
I’m an MD and I know from experience that there are things we can control about our health and things we can’t. Physical activity/exercise, which we have 100% control over, has been shown to basically improve/treat every known medical condition – cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, chronic pain, even urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders. I love that I show up, see my fellow runners in the same boat with no drama, few words and right down to business and that I’m done in 50 minutes! I am motivated by Sarah Daley’s shout outs: “You are a runner, you are an athlete!”, “This is your Me time!”, “Take your stress, whatever is bothering you and leave it behind” and “This is only 4% of your day”. I love Joanie Doyle’s awesome tunes and forever-positive attitude and Caitlin Harrigan’s sincere no BS philosophy. I simply LOVE TREADFIT and forever grateful to team TREADFIT for helping me take back the control!”
