Meet Luke!

Meet Luke! Luke is one of the athletes in Coach Jeri's Down Town Athletic Training Class. Here is his story:

1.Why did you join Versus AT?
I wanted a natural fitness environment that I knew I could stick with.  So, I gave Versus a try and there are so many things that keep me coming back.  Mostly, it is probably the accountability and the social atmosphere of training provided.  There is a personal trainer feel about it, as well as, a "you're in it together" feeling you get.  And most importantly, I am feeling healthy and fit again.  The culture is just great.

2. What was your life like prior to Versus AT?
-How did you feel emotionally? Physically? Mentally?
I wasn't very motivated at all and pretty much felt like a couch potato.
3. What results have you seen since joining the VSC community?
The results are across the board.  Originally, I only wanted a stronger core (and, I wanted to see my abdomen muscles again).  But, I have improved in all areas after only doing a 6 week bootcamp.  28% increase in SPRINTS, 28% increase in SITUPS, 69% increase in SQUATS, and a whopping 87% increase in PUSHUPS.  But its not just about numbers.  I feel great again AND I'm motivated to live out a healthy and fit lifestyle into the foreseeable future.  I think it has really changed me.

4. Has Versus AT helped you break through any mental barriers?

I've always wanted to be a morning person, but I just loved my sleep too much.  But, it was the accountability and the social atmosphere that helped me break through my mental barrier of waking up early for the 6am workout.  Now that I do this consistently, 3 times a week, AND there are great trainers and other bootcampers and athletic trainees who care about seeing you get fit and healthy, VSC motivates me to get it done.

5. How has pushing yourself and challenging yourself in your  daily workouts translated to your career? Your family life and relationships?

Pushing and challenging myself has brought about three things really:  A sharper mind, more "life" energy, and a motivated attitude.  It's a "can do and will do greatly" attitude.  All of which have translated into a mental clarity that has positively affected my career and family life/relationships.  I'm sharper and more motivated at work and there is a new culture of health and fitness at our house.  I really like one of the Versus mottos that goes along with this:  If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.

6. What accomplishments have you achieved?

All of the above!
