Fitness Success Story: Janet Murff

Janet and Candice

Club Fit Member Janet Murff and Personal Trainer Candice O’Brien — working together to help Janet reach her goals.

Healthier and happier — Club Fit Member Janet Murff started training with Personal Trainer Candice O’Brien in 2015 and is now stronger, fitter, and happier.

I’d like to express my appreciation to my trainer Candice and Club Fit. I am thrilled! The physical & mental benefits of exercise are amazing.

When I made my decision in November 2015 to have a personal trainer, I was out of shape and feeling stressed from two years of the life changing activities of caring for one’s parents; too much driving, too much sitting. Realizing what a difference a trainer would mean to my success, I signed up — and as luck would have it, I was paired with the right trainer from day one. I began with the goals of improved health and fitness. I knew that I could only commit to two or three gym visits per week. Consistency would make it work. Weight loss was far down my list. Today, I am much stronger, fitter, more toned, and happier than I was a year ago. Weight loss has been a bonus. I know that I could not have done this alone. I am excited to set new goals for 2017 and look forward to continue working with Candice to help me reach these.

Congratulations to Janet on her hard work and her commitment to health!

Shelley Lerea has been working at Club Fit for 16 years! She has exercised her whole life and even as a child, she enjoyed being active. “I work out almost every day on my lunch break. My work-outs consist of cardio some days (usually treadmill, step mill, and one of the ellipticals) for about 30 minutes. My weight training consists of either TRX, Fit-Linxx, or free weights on my own. I have done Kinesis in the past and have personal trained for about 3 years. On the weekends I usually will combine a cardio/weight workout because I have more time. Reason for working out: Not looking to lose weight but want to stay toned and also want to keep my weight consistent since I have a family history of diabetes (my mom, grandmother, and brother)and high cholesterol. My doctor told me as long as I keep my weight down, I should be safe from both! Also, emotionally it makes me feel better. I honestly love the way exercising makes me feel. I couldn’t imagine my life without it.” Check out her motivational quote by E. James Rohn! -Shelley Lerea, Manager of Member Services at Club Fit Briarcliff.
