Congratulations to September member of the month Kim Comstock. As a coach witnessing a person continually progress and grow as a person is the ultimate reward. Kim has lost well over 25 lbs and it's an absolute pleasure to have her around. The best is yet to come.
Here is Kim in her own words....
"TNF makes me smile; let me tell you why...
When my son was almost two in 2013, we were playing at Linda Mar Beach and I could barely keep up with him. I was out of breath and completely out of shape. Thankfully, Jessica S. organized with Chris Shah at TNF a trial boot camp membership for Moms in the Pacifica Moms Club just about that same time.
I was intimated to go because I felt weak and self-conscious about my weight and ability. I, also, wasn't getting much sleep those days and didn't think I could wake up in time for a 6 am boot camp. I took a chance, decided not to think about all my worries and found a place that made me felt comfortable, supported and pushed just enough to continue to get stronger.
My initial goal was to get strong enough to keep up with my son, enjoy running and playing with him and feel healthy. Check, reached that goal!
Then, I realized I was still heavier than I'd like to be but didn't know how to change what I was doing outside my gym time. Timing again was perfect for me. Chris at TNF offered trial coaching sessions over the phone that included writing exercises, guidelines for what to eat and more in February 2015. This truly helped me make those changes that seemed hard at first but now are second nature to me. My goal was to lose 20 lbs by my birthday, June 2015. I thought it was an impossible goal but Chris encouraged me to set it. Check, reached that goal and passed it!
It's time for me to set a few more goals. Thanks to Chris and Ami at TNF, I know I can achieve those new goals. And, that's why I love to smile through the squats, sled pushing, core workouts and more. I know every bit counts towards reaching my goals." Kim Comstock
