Since choosing a more active lifestyle I have lost a total of 35 lbs, increased my physical strength and boosted my energy!


Vanessa VanHezewijk“After my son was born I was determined to put an end to my previous inactive lifestyle. I wanted to be an energetic mother who was a role model for her child. Making a new start for my son and me became my priority.

I purchased a gym membership in September 2008 and began exercising a few times a week. Hiring a personal trainer in the beginning helped me become comfortable with the equipment and gave me some great results.

Fortunately, this gym provides a daycare service which allows me the opportunity to work out knowing my son is being cared for.

Since choosing a more active lifestyle I have lost a total of 35 lbs, increased my physical strength and boosted my energy. Making exercise a priority in my life has made all the difference. I am not in the gym everyday, but I do make sure I do something active each day.

Becoming a mother has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have learned however, that I must not forget to take care of myself too. The two hours I get to spend in the gym while my son is in daycare are truly my own and I feel rejuvenated and have more energy for my son after I have given myself the time I need to be me again. I would encourage all new mothers to incorporate regular activity into their daily routines. For me it has made all the difference.”
