A few months ago I was lacing up my shoes to head to Renegade Fitness when my 8-year old daughter asked, “Mom, what does Renegade do for you?”
How could I explain? I donned my best Rosie the Riveter impression and said, “This!”
As she tested my biceps, she exclaimed, “Wow! Mom, you have man arms!” What a great opportunity to talk about the strength of women.
A friend told me about Renegade. I’m so glad she did. I’d dabbled in various fitness programs for years finding online workout videos or running guides. Despite my trial-and-error approach, I had moderate success – even completing a 15K in my goal time a number of years ago. But my motivation waned and my sedentary lifestyle of office-car-couch began to take a toll. Backaches, reduced flexibility, and imbalance were the beginning to larger problems I think I’m far too young to be facing.
At Renegade, I don’t have to “go it alone” to figure out what machines I should use or if my form is going to do more damage than good. And I don’t get bored or over-train with the same workout day after day.
For me, the best part of Renegade is having the benefit of personal trainers develop and guide a variety of comprehensive workouts on a schedule that works with mine. My schedule can be pretty fluid from one week to the next, but with so many sessions available, I can always find times to get in. I appreciate the feedback on form or modifications for a particular exercise, and even when I should go with heavier/lighter weights for a particular circuit. At Renegade, I know I’m getting the most from my workouts every session.
