Let’s give a shoutout to Bobbie who went from 7 back surgeries, spinal cord stimulator, mind and body numbing pain meds, not getting out bed… to dropping 15 pounds of fat, gaining 2 pounds of muscle and did her first pull-up in 29 hours of training! Keep moving forward Bobbie!
Bobbie said since coming to EarthFIT “I just love getting up every morning, walking out the door and coming to EarthFIT. It’s about coming in and doing this and I just… I love it. Love it!”
“My life before EarthFIT, I’ve had 7 back surgeries, I have a spinal cord stimulator and that help with my nerves and my left leg. I did not feel strong, I felt weight, I favored my back, I had never felt like I properly knew how to bend my back because I was always worried about pain.
Since coming to EarthFIT I’m now deadlifting a 132 lbs, I did my first pull-up last week which was sort of my goal. I want to be able to do that before my 61st birthday. I’ve done that with the help of course but I’ve done it and I’m just getting stronger and I just feel amazing. I mean I can go on all day and tell you how much better I feel. I feel like I’m just a strong person mentally, physically, emotionally, and I just love getting up every morning, walking out the door and coming to EarthFIT.
I did not feel strong and I’m an outdoor girl, I like being outside, I love being in the river in the boats but I just didn’t feel like I was stronger and I feel like I was always worried about injuring my back. I was very skeptical of hurting my back. I’ve always guarded my back. I have been so down and out with my back like not being able to get out my bed in the mornings, and then I took a lot of pain medication to help me with my back and then I got hooked on my pain meds and here I knew that I had found another way to strengthen my back and EarthFIT has absolutely done that for me. I was sent to EarthFIT by physical therapist. She suggested that I come to EarthFIT and see Ian Hart to see if he can help me strengthen my back and he absolutely has… they have done that for me here. I feel like a different person.
I was talking the other day to somebody about the trainers, the different trainers here and I said but you know what… it’s not about the trainers, it’s about me getting up every morning and coming in here and doing this. The trainers are here to help you, protect you, and they certainly have trained me how to use my back to the betterment of me, but it’s not about the trainers at all. It’s about coming in and doing this and I just… I love it. Love it!”
