We love to shine a light on the successes of our athletes (no matter how big or small). Today we turn our attention to Cara H. who has had changes so massive they can barely be described! This amazing woman joined the Cove after the New You Challenge where she saw incredible results… and they did not end there. In fact, she’s on the beginning of a great ride — but more importantly living fully because of it. What we love about our athletes is that everyone’s motivation is different. In her case it started with just a little wedding ring…
With great awe we share her story…
“I started my journey mid April with an ‘ah ha’ moment. We were going to an event and I wanted to wear my wedding ring — and it didn’t fit. It was at that moment I knew I need a change. I was the heaviest I have ever been after getting pregnant and the weight just never came off. And I didn’t do anything to encourage it. I saw the ad for the New You Challenge, and although I was terrified decided I was just going to give it six weeks. I’m so glad I did! I’m down 3 pant sizes and only 4 pounds short of my near term goal of losing 50lbs! I hope to see the number keep going down but beyond that I am feeling great and have so much more energy. The ultimate benefit of this all though is improved self worth. I feel so much more confident and have seen improvements in almost all facets of my personal life. All of it, marriage, my career… has picked up. And it’s nice that all my clients notice a change in me too. I no longer rushing out the door 10 minutes before work — I have officially become a morning conqueror! Something I never thought I would be!!
I really like that the workouts are short but intense. It’s some serious hard work for me but the fact that you are giving it your all and then you are done I appreciate. I was telling my friend, that at every moment when want to give up or stop running, someone was right there coming up behind me with words of encouragement. And it gets you through. It what keeps me coming back.
And my wedding ring fits!

Coach’s Tip: There is no strength or skill today because this will be a longer workout. Your goal is to complete the Snatches and Pull Ups in the least amount of sets possible, so choose a weight or scale that allows you to do BIG SETS!
