Glen & Jocelyne’s #MYFIT Story

2018

2020

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 clients, Glen and Jocelyne, for sharing their #MYFIT story, again, after first sharing it with us in 2018 (yup, they are still with us!):

Glen and Jocelyn are sharing their #MYFIT story through a poem:

ODE TO SVPT

Our Retirement was pending

But the energy was ending

One look in the mirror

Had left us in fear

With bodies obese

And more than 1 crease

We were sick and tired

So..a trainer was hired

We joined SVPT

To create a new me

What a place we found ourselves in

Let the exercise now begin

A start was made and it was slow

We felt embarrassed and on show

Commitment was the #1 key

To the success of this new journey

Improvement did not come with ease

The option to quit was always a tease

But three times a week we went without fail

Three years went by and we did prevail

Four trainers we did outlast

Brittany is the most steadfast

Lifting, flexing, lunging….we began to move

But the weight we simply could not lose

Training alone was not enough

Diet too made the right stuff

 

A full lifestyle shift is what was needed

And with our tenacity it was completed

Together 170 lbs we did drop

Simply because we did not stop

Another look into the mirror

No longer brings that same old fear

 

Italy, Austria, Croatia and more

Off to challenge ourselves galore

A thousand kilometers we did ride

And taller mountains we could stride

Injury, illness, surgery, depression

Tried to derail us but taught us a lesson

 

The motto upon which we relied

And to our success it did provide

That everyday No matter what

It’s really simple;  “JUST SHOW UP

Now we feel our future’s secure

Because we know we can endure

 

Biking Pilgrim’s Trail in Spain awaits

Without guides and carrying our freight

We cannot afford to be lazy

Instead we need to train like crazy

Can’t thank you enough SVPT

In helping dreams become reality
