When/Why did you start training at IR?
In late 2015, I began searching for a new way of working out and getting in shape. Until that time, I had been a member at a national ‘mega-gym’ for years, however, it wasn’t very motivating, and I wasn’t getting any results. Then one day, I stumbled upon a short introduction video on IR, and I knew immediately this was the place for me. Days later, I had my first workout with IR and my life was changed for the better.
What have you improved since you started training at IR?
Everything – strength, flexibility, aerobic capacity. Loss of nearly 20lbs. Back pain has been dramatically reduced.
Some metrics that I have achieved: 70 feet on the versa-climber in 10 seconds, 43 push ups in 1 minute, 3 minute straight arm plank.
How has IR improved other areas of my life?
Inspired to be more active with my life, and be more active outdoors – recently, hiked to the summit of Saddleback Mountain, the highest point in Orange County. I sleep better and the workouts help reduce stress levels.
Why do you stay committed to your improvement in and out of the gym?
In the words of Dylan Thomas, “Do not go gently into that good night – old age should burn and rave at close of day.” While I don’t think I’m old yet, IR workouts help keep me feeling young, and help keep the effects of time and age at bay.
