Thank you so much for training me this summer, and letting me train every day that last week before I left.
I made the team, easily. I had about four days to acclimate before tryouts, and after the first day I was totally acclimated. After that, it was easy. I was undoubtedly one of the most fit kids there. After the third day of three-a-days, kids were dropping like flies with pulled muscles and injuries. At that point, my legs weren't even sore.
Thanks so much, I will definitely be back next summer.
I am also competing for a starting spot, so we'll see how that goes.
I exercised off and on for many years, doing what I suppose are pretty typical activities, primarily running (outdoor and treadmill), elliptical, stairmaster and resistance training using machines and some free weights. I found abdominal exercises to be very difficult and boring, sticking to sit ups, crunches and the ab machines.
Everything changed when my wife eventually persuaded me to join in a boot camp class at MBC. The cutting edge exercise routines the trainers there developed were entirely new to me, very challenging and most of all, a heckuva a lot of fun. Combining balance, core, resistance and aerobic training in each movement, while incorporating Swiss and Bosu balls, sliding plates, Pilates machines, kettle balls and dumbbells, the exercise experience at MBC was and is inspiring and life changing. Two years later, twenty pounds lighter and with considerably more muscle mass and tone, I feel I'm in the best physical condition of my adult life. As I approach my 50th birthday, I'm so happy and thankful my wife introduced me to MBC Fitness, the best fitness center in the West Suburbs!
