March Client of the Month: Amy Weibel
Congrats to our March Client of the Month in Manchester: Amy Weibel!
- What is your hometown?
- What brought you to DPT?
Something needed to change. I was always tired, embarrassed of having my picture taken. My knee issues were causing a severe decline in my quality of life.
- How long have you been training with us?
Since July of 2016! Not quite a Manchester OG but close.
- What do you do in the “real world?” (job, family, pets, etc)
I am a learning advisor, which means I consult with the business, design, curate, build, and sometimes facilitate new learning programs. I am an older/middle child. If you look at any of those descriptions of what those mean they totally describe me. I have a ton of nieces and nephews, and an amazing husband that some ladies in the nutrition program have gotten to meet. When I get home I feel a little like Ace Ventura.. 4 cats 3 dogs and a 75g fish tank ( I used to have 4 tanks…) fun fact about my pets is we only have one cat that we were the first owners of everyone else was adopted in one way or another. With the latest puppy only being with her previous owner for a little over a month.
- What is one fun fact that most people don’t know about you?
I have impromptu dance parties with my dogs while doing chores when my husband is not home.
- What is your favorite exercise and why?
It used to be the single handed KB swings with the switch because they seen so dangerous.. Now I am liking squats because they help me build muscle to support my knees and who does not like to have more muscles in their thighs… thick thighs save lives
- What is your biggest gym achievement so far?
Being able to do lunges of any kind. I came to DPT unable to make it up my stairs unassisted most days it was to the point my husband and I were trying to find a house with out steps.
- What inspires and motivates you?
Everyone here my night crew ladies always help me out to keep going or push me to want to try something that is harder than I think I can do.
- What would you say to someone who is thinking about joining or who has just joined DPT?
Just do it. It will be one of the best decisions of your life. Keep going it gets better never easier( the trainers find ways to keep you challenged). Get rid of your scale it lies. Use the measurements they take at the gym and how you feel as your measurement of progress. Everyone has set backs don’t use them as a crutch learn from them and surpass them.
