Nagging injuries are an all too common reason for people to avoid fitness. With the right workout program, you can regain lost strength and change your life!
Prabhjot had a long history of injuries. She was involved in a few car accidents in her ear 20s, a fall at the age of 27, and another car accident at the age of 30 that left her with chronic back pain. At the same time, she was dealing with an eating disorder, anorexia, which had been an on and off again issue since the age of 12.
With her injuries leaving her in pain and her weight very low for over 10 years, she decided enough was enough. At first the results she was looking for didn't happen, After being at a very low weight for 10+ years, I decided it was time to make a change in my late 30s.
People had previously encouraged me to work on my weight and health, but to no avail. It wasn’t until I was ready and recognized that something needed to change, that I made progress. I modified my diet and started to see improvements in my weight.
While she could see she was making progress, she still didn't feel healthy or attractive. At this point she decided to seek out the help of a personal trainer.
Prabhjot went into the Steve Nash Morgan Crossing Sports Club met her personal trainer, Sharaya P. Together they built her an exercise plan to help work around her accidents. After sticking to the program and working hard, she was able to gain 5 lbs of muscle in 2 and a half months.
Life however decided to throw her another curveball. She was bitten by a rare, poisonous spider on her right leg that left her hospitalized for a week and out of the gym and unable to exercise for 2 months. She didn't let that bring her down though! She devoted the majority of her time to exercising to strengthening her upper body while her leg fully recovered.
Today, Prabhjot continues to see progress in her fitness journey. She has sought out the help of a trama consultant and is slowly but surely seeing improvement with her chronic pain. She has also once again started working on her lower body since recovering from the spider bite. She continues to work with her personal trainer and looks forward to coming into the gym.
I’ve been very fortunate to have found a personal trainer that I enjoy working with. She keeps me motivated and encourages me not to be too hard on myself. And, most importantly she’s become a really good friend and another reason to look forward to coming to the gym. I am pleased with my progress I’ve made on my upper body. I’m petite, but I can lift a lot more than I could when we started. I’m looking forward to building even more strength this coming year in both my upper and lower body.
