I've been training at TWIST for over a year. Before that my exercise regimen consisted of 3 mile runs about 3x/week, which was getting extraordinarily boring. We all hear the advice that we should diversify our workouts and include weight-bearing exercise, but it was hard for me to break out of my comfort zone. I knew I needed to cross train and change up my routine, because I was starting to develop injuries.
I felt pretty scrawny and unprepared for TWIST, but I found all the coaches to be very patient and knowledgeable. The classes are always changing, which keeps me interested and each class builds up to the main exercise complex in a way that isn't physically or psychologically overwhelming. This has allowed me to challenge myself in ways I would never have been able to on my own. Anyone who wants to burn calories and build lean muscle mass should be training at TWIST. They take great care of you and I don't feel scrawny anymore!
Taking care of my health is literally at the top of my priority list, purely because I can't take care of my family, or set an example for them, without it. Also, I don't want to sit on the sidelines in my kids' lives. They still want to play with me, so I happily snowboard, rock climb, play basketball etc. with them. They just assume I will join them and I love that more than anything.
