Image Gal Samantha von Sperling comes close to the end of her journey and shares her thoughts … and the body she’s getting back!
Life is a balancing act. Sometimes our schedules, due to work and other outside forces, disrupt our routine. For people trying to get back in shape, upheaval can mean that fitness goals are not met for the week, which can lead to frustration that can lead to disaster. My advice? Don’t give up!
Last week I was walking on air because I had hit the 11-pound marker. Then came a wave of unending days, deadlines and production meetings. To make matters worse, my trainer Scott Bitterman and my schedule did not coordinate, and I only managed to see him once during the week. As always, I got a great workout that had all the muscles I clearly don’t use often begging for mercy.
Scott was very reassuring and supportive. He reminded me this not the time to get frustrated and quit. It’s the time to regroup and stay the course! I didn’t gain any weight back during my off week. Learning to maintain a weight is also an important skill to learn.
Scott is a great trainer: knowledgeable, talented, kind and supportive. I’m so lucky and grateful. If you are trying to get in shape for swimsuit season, which is just around the corner, I highly recommend calling Scott at Emerge Athletics. Tell him Sam sent you!
