When was the last time you truly challenged yourself? If it has been a while then I am challenging you to start with a 30-day challenge. What exactly is a 30-day challenge? Well for 30-days I challenge you to eat clean and train mean! In other words, I challenge you to live like a fitness professional for 30-days, and if you succeed I guarantee you will be happy with your results.
I would like to introduce to Christine Bush! On June 19, 2015 Christine accepted my 30-day challenge and the results speak for themselves! To learn more about Christine’s journey read the interview below.
The Christine Bush interview
Besides being a CKO/2.0 Superhero and one of Garett’s hardcore clients, what is your day job? I am a manufacturing engineer in the medical device industry. I am also taking an online program to get a BS in Operations Management, hope to complete that by the end of this year.
What are your hobbies? I like all sorts of activities, with an 8 year old son at home I spend a lot of time going to the pool or park. We play a lot of catch, just about any ball will do! I also enjoy kayaking and bought a stand up paddleboard this summer, I just don’t have much time to take it out. As a family we love to camp, not the hard core stuff, to me roughing it means forgetting the blender!
What motivates you to walk through that door day after day and continue to push yourself? My son, I really want to be an example to him of how to live a healthier and stronger life.
What’s one thing you still find yourself struggling with? Carbohydrates! I still fall back to old eating habits easy, breads, pasta, sweets are all just too available. I have to concentrate and plan my meals to be successful and this is a daily struggle. I know with more practice it will become a habit but for now it is a real challenge
If we do a follow up interview 1-year from now, what awesome accomplishment would we be celebrating? I hope to still be making #Gainz I already feel stronger than I thought I could so I don’t want to put limits on what I might be able to accomplish.
When you think of successful people who comes to mind, and why? I don’t really have one person. I am always inspired by stories of people who overcome huge life obstacles and succeed. It makes me reflect on how fortunate I am and grateful for my life.
Would you recommend Garett’s personal training services? If so, why? Absolutely! Garett is great, he understands that not everyone can or will have the same goals. He helped me focus on my personal improvements, even just a little everyday instead of focusing on my “failures”.
What is the best part about training with Garett? He is so good at pushing you to your own limit. He knows not everyone is the same and pushes you to be the best you can be without comparing yourself to what others are able to do or accomplish. I played soccer for most of my life and have had a lot of injuries; Garett was great about helping me find the right balance of hard work without pushing too hard and getting hurt.
What was the hardest part about training with Garett? The workouts! I’ve never been so exhausted!
What is one book or documentary that you have read that changed your life? Ummmmm…
Where do you see yourself in 5-years? I have no idea, but I will be stronger!
Share any relevant information you’d like about yourself that other 2.0 team members might not know about you! I had some health issues in 2011 and wound up gaining 20# in a year and I already was 10# over where I felt comfortable. I started kickboxing at another gym and started feeling a little better, but my attendance was inconsistent – so were my results after 18 months I had lost some and felt a little better, but then I found CKO and got addicted. I started coming to CKO in spring 2014 and fell in love with the classes and the people, the atmosphere – everything. Then I joined 2.0 in January…..I started slow, a class here and there but then suddenly I started feeling stronger. I’ve never been so motivated in my life! I found myself doing double workouts and lifting weights! I have never felt better. I would never have believed that I could survive a boot camp workout but here I am doing it! The semi-private classes are amazing. I am lifting heavier and heavier, I feel strong. I’m surrounded by the most amazing group of people of every shape and size and on every point on the fitness journey and I feel like I belong here. I’ve never seen so many people working so hard and motivating each other. 2.0 is a special gym and now after completing this 30 day with Garett I feel like anything is possible.
Now who’s ready to accept the challenge?
