Somerville Training Spotlight Sunday: Maureen O’Donnell

Check out this awesome story from one of our training clients, Maureen O’Donnell….

I have always been fairly active.  I have a 10-year-old son that is very athletic and I try to take every opportunity to play tennis, basketball or just throw the baseball around with him.   I also do a lot of walking.  I never considered myself out of shape or overweight but after a year of training with Callie, Emily and Caitlin at Durbrow Performance Training, I now know differently.

My friend Liz referred me to Callie.  She was so excited about what she was doing at Durbrow Performance Training and the results she was seeing.  She also told me how much fun she was having.  I was hooked after the first session with Emily.  After a year of training, I have been transformed.  I feel like a different person.  I have more energy than ever and can’t believe some of the things I am able to do.   I am so much stronger and fitter than I have been in quite a few years.

My favorite exercises are anything involving the TRX, most of the core workouts, the agility ladder and push-ups.  I also really love doing box jumps.   My favorite finisher is ropes.  The new facility has created an opportunity to do a lot more than we could at the previous space and I love that Callie and team are constantly changing up the workouts and offering new exercises and challenges every week.

I have Celiac Disease and am constantly challenged with the gluten-free diet, but Callie’s nutritional guidance has certainly helped me to be more conscious of what I am eating.  I try to do off-day workouts and a lot of the time I will do them with my son.  He loves learning some of the exercises and we have even done a couple of pyramids together.  All the work I have done at Dubrow Performance Training has made it possible for me to keep up with him and his activities!
