June Tribe Member of the Month!
Congratulations Maria Lee!
“Maria has a determined look on her face every time she’s in the gym. Happy, upbeat, and fiercely determined.”
Maria's family is the focus of her life and brings her the most joy and satisfaction. In the Lee house hold you will find some sort of celebration being planned or executed and if not, it's always a big party when they are all together!
Maria joined the Total Reset program in July 2016. Her primary goal was to look in the mirror and like what was looking back at her. That meant she had some weight to lose and knew it was going to take some effort to do just that.
When asked what advice Maria would give someone who was thinking about joining the Warrior and Total Reset program she said "If someone is thinking about it, then it means that they are looking for something...to lose weight, gain a healthier lifestyle, gain strength, be more fit, etc... Just try it. If it's not for you, you haven't lost anything but have gained knowledge and some positive physical gains. If this program works for you, then you have stumbled upon something that is life-changing! Just try it!"
"Maria holds herself accountable day in and day out. She comes to class to work out and push herself out of her comfort zone. She strives to be stronger and faster after having 6 kids! She's a super Mom and Grandma!!"
Another positive change since joining the program is that Maria doesn't always finish last. At first that was hard for her, and she felt embarrassed, however in some ways, she was proud of that. Maria always told herself that she was there for herself and she was going to do this all the way. And she did, and still does. Today in the Reset classes Maria may still finish last sometimes and she is completely fine with that, as long as she knows she is pushing herself.
Of all the accomplishments Maria's favorite is how much her metabolic age has improved! She started with a metabolic age of 82 at her first weigh in, and now her metabolic age is 25!
"Maria is a true inspiration! She comes to every single work out focused on the task at hand, yet can brighten anyone's day with her smile and spunky personality. She continues to surprise herself at every workout by seeing how much further she can push herself. For example in the picture above Maria maxed out holding a plank for 3 minutes straight."
"I have liked the results! If you commit to the program, it works! And surprisingly, I truly enjoy the relationships that I have made with my fellow participants. I was anxious about being in a group workout program. But the support and accountability are factors that make this program successful. I look forward to seeing familiar faces and knowing that we are sharing the same challenges and rewards."
Maria also wanted to say that "Pam and my fellow Reset friends have been so supportive and encouraging as I worked hard to achieve my fitness goals. It has been wonderful to share my triumphs. But truly, I know the hard part is ahead. To maintain this lifestyle and commitment to fitness and healthy food choices is going to be difficult. My heroes are all of those in Reset who are there regularly and working through the struggles of maintaining these lifestyle choices over YEARS! Those people are my inspiration! I show up for class, and there they are. Week after week. They have lost weight, (maybe put some back on) but they are there, ready to RESET and walk that line of being healthy but enjoying food and life! They are my inspiration as we move forward together as Tribe members!"
