“Use it or lose it!”
This should be the motto of all women and men approaching their middle years and beyond. A dear friend shared this belief with me a few years ago and it wasn’t until I had the opportunity to begin a workout regime with Umo Callins, that I realized just how right she was. I admit that I was not participating in any sort of organized exercise, although I considered myself active and in good health.
Now, nearly three years later, I can honestly say I feel 100% better – stronger, fit and more confident of my health going forward. I look forward to working out and know that I’m doing something that not only is fun now, but will also benefit me in the years to come.
I appreciate Umo not only as a trainer but also as a person. She is encouraging, sure of her coaching and will not take “I can’t do it” as an excuse – ever! We’ve thrown tires, pulled weighted sleds, pushed 35-pound weights and done more burpees than we could ever count. For all of this and more, I say, “Thank you, Umo” at the end of each class!
