January Client of the Month

Name: Becky Baker 

Birth Date: August 2, 1970

How long have you been working out at Bodyshop Athletics X? 4 years

What is your favorite food? Something not healthy but oh-so-yummy: my mom's fried chicken!

What is your favorite exercise? Bent over dumbbell rows

Did you have any goals? How have you accomplished them? As a former fitness/figure competitor, I had muscle but lacked endurance and drive. A standard gym with weight machines just didn't cut it anymore. The training at Bodyshop Athletics X has given me the endurance, strength and motivation that I couldn't accomplish on my own.

Why is working out important to you? What keeps you motivated to pursue health? It's not easy to "rise and shine" for a 5:00am class. However, once I get in the gym with my fitness family (and we are VERY much like a family!), I am charged up for the day and ready to go. People always wonder how I get up and go to the gym that early. It's easy: it's my "me" time. It's the only hour of the day that I truly get to devote to myself. It's as much a mental motivation as it is physical! And as a single mom, my boys - my inspiration - need to know that taking care of yourself should be priority. I want to set a positive example for them.

What is one of your favorite or most memorable moments so far at Bodyshop Athletics X? One of my most memorable moments? There are SO many! But I guess I have to say competing in the APEX Games in Greenville. Those competitions were far from easy, and they were nothing that I would have ever imagined myself trying before training at Bodyshop Athletics X. But going there with a group, cheering each other on, watching us achieve goals? It was priceless.

How would you describe your experience at Bodyshop Athletics X to a friend? There is one word I would use to describe my experience at Bodyshop Athletics X, and that is "FAMILY." Not only to we encourage each other on a physical level to achieve and crush our goals, but we support each other on a personal level, as well. I truly enjoy working out at BSX. There is nowhere else like it!
