Since her first class on October 30, 2014, Kate has taken more than 780 classes! That's almost 500 hours of exercise - and she's the mother of three young children. She mixes up her routine every week, encourages friends to join her, and she's encouraged her husband to join HG Cycle! Kate is truly an HG Ambassador! Here she is in her own words....
Kettlebell, Tabata, Strength & Power, CycleCore, PiYo HOUR, and Barre Intensity are classes I try to do regularly. It's a great mix of classes. Kettlebell and Tabata are high intensity, fast-paced classes that get your heart rate up. Strength & Power focuses on building muscle but it isn't your typical weight lifting class - it's fun, challenging and the instructors always try to mix it up so you don't get bored. CycleCore is a great combination. You get an amazing cardio workout for 30 to 35 minutes and then end with a yoga stretch that is challenging but at the same time feels great. PiYo Hour and Barre Intensity are great classes that help lengthen and stretch you out but will surprise you with how sore you are the next day.
I was a little intimidated to try HG Cycle but I am so glad I did! It is a great addition to my weekly workout routine. It is an incredible, low impact cardio workout made even better by the awesome instructors that really push and encourage you.
With 3 kids age 9, 6, and 4 - they keep me busy with all their activities. I always try to plan out my class schedule in advance to make sure I can squeeze a workout in between their activities which is made easier with so many class time options.
I see such a difference in myself when I get a workout in and when I don't. Not just physically but mentally as well. I am more patient with my kids and I have more energy. Having 3 young kids I need a lot of energy and patience.
My fitness goal is to keep making my health and wellness a priority. Some days the only time I get for myself is those 45 minutes at the gym. Life is busy and unpredictable. It is so easy to get out of the routine of working out. At times I fail but I always come back to the gym because it has such a positive impact on my life.
