We are so excited to share the personal story about this months’ member! We love having her as part of our tribe and we hope you enjoy getting to know her a little bit more! Here is our March 2016 Tribe Member Spotlight: Sweet & Strong…Wendi Stukey!
Tell us a little history about yourself. Where were you born? Did you play sports growing up?
I was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and moved several times …. New York, Dallas, Chicago and then settled in California in 1971… I was athletic and played tennis and swam through high school and first 2years of college… I met my kids dad when I was 14 and married at 21… We were together for 21 years before he passed away at 35 so I’ve essentially been a single mom to our 3 children….
What is your motivation to work out?
I had always been in pretty good shape and then got into a rut of not really caring about myself and then saw Coaches 6 week transformation challenge from a friend in 2015… I thought why not? I can do just about anything for 6 weeks and so that started my journey and fueled my motivation because I SAW RESULTS!!!
How does working out make you feel?
I feel accomplished when I complete a workout session!!! I have pushed myself beyond what I thought I could do and discovered that with the right guidance (coach) and nutrition I can become a better me than I thought possible.
What are your goals?
My goal now is to maintain a healthy active life style and continue to firm and strengthen my body… When I started this journey, I couldn’t do even one ‘ man’ push-up and now I can do 12-15 at one time!!!
What do you do to make sure you have time for your workouts?
As a single person, it’s easier for me now to make time for myself so getting my work outs in isn’t too hard for me…and there is such a camaraderie at the village that it’s really like just making time to hang out with friends…I look forward to everyday!!!
What would you say to someone on the fence about joining the Village?
If someone is on the fence about working out or joining the village I encourage them to JUST TRY IT!!! I share my story and coach offers so many different trial opportunities that it makes it easy to try without a lengthy contract…. And coach and Vince are the best in the IE… I knew I was in the most excellent care for my health having met Coach…she genuinely cares about each of her athletes as though they r her family… You sue don’t get anything like it at LA Fitness … Thanks for listening…here’s to our health!!!
We LOVE you, Wendi and we are so grateful to have YOU as part of our Village Tribe. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us. 🙂
