Lee’s #MYFIT Story

SVPT is proud to present #MYFIT – a celebration of our clients who live a fit and balanced lifestyle.

#MYFIT is not about a 6 pack or a bikini body, it’s about showing that fitness comes in ALL SHAPES AND SIZES, and truly is training to live a more full life. It’s not about young and skinny, it’s about showing that fitness can be a part of ANYONE’S life, regardless of age.

#MYFIT celebrates clients who challenge themselves physically and mentally to move better, perform better and live better. #thesvptway

We are grateful to long time SVPT client, Lee, for sharing his #MYFIT story:

“In late 2015 I committed to hiking the West Coast trail, a hike I had always wanted to do. I really wanted the experience to be a good one so I did a lot of planning and research. My wife suggested that although I was in fairly good shape, I might want to do some intensive training to prepare physically for the hike. She did some research and in early 2016 I started attending SVPT.

In July 2016 I completed the West Coast trail and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. Physically preparing for the ladders, the tricky footing and the various demands of the trail gave me the confidence and ability to make the most of the experience.

Since that time I’ve continued to attend SVPT to prepare for my retirement. It is important to me to be healthy and fit as I have so much that I want to do in the future. On June 30th of this year I retired after 37 years of policing. After a career that was often stressful and included an administrative desk job for the last ten years, continuing to see Shawn weekly is a priority for me. The benefits, both physically and mentally, are well worth the work.

There are so many opportunities ahead, and maintaining my physical fitness is an integral part of being able to enjoy every experience, from athletic pursuits to travel to grandchildren (hopefully!).”

Thank you Shawn and Shara
