Maureen's HVF Story
How long have you been a HVF member? I've been with Keith for over 7 years!
A little about you: I am a 36 year old mom to a fun, energetic, loving 5 year old little girl. I am also a 1st grade teacher (just finished my 11th year)!
I have been married for 9 years and moved to Fishkill 9 years ago. I am originally from Middletown but absolutely LOVE living in the Fishkill/Beacon area.
Why did you join HVF? I started working with Keith after I lost my first pregnancy at 17 weeks- I had gained a tremendous amount of weight and was feeling very frustrated and at my wits end. Keith originally started coming to my house doing personal sessions and then we moved to his first studio on Main Street continuing with the one on one personal sessions.
After Keith moved into his current studio, he told me about the boot camp classes that he was going to be starting. While I loved the one on one sessions, I was excited to try a new type of class.
Shortly after I became pregnant with my daughter and continued doing classes with Keith for the first few months of my pregnancy. While I did not gain as much weight with the second pregnancy, I still had quite a bit left on me from the first pregnancy. Once I got the all clear from my doctor I was ready to go full force. I started back again with personal sessions and then moved to the Boot Camp classes. In approximately nine months I was down 75 lbs. Keith has always been there for me whenever I have questions regarding weight loss or fitness and he introduced me to AdvoCare (which I love).
Describe your HVF experiences: I absolutely love my time when I am at HVF! I feel like it's a second family. The friends that I have made there keep me going when I feel like stopping. Keith is an amazing trainer! He modified exercises to anybody's level. I have never once felt out of place or like I couldn't complete an exercise or a workout.
HVF is not like your typical gym. The smaller classes make it feel more personal and you are still getting that one on one time when you need it.
Recommendations for those thinking about joining HVF: I recommend HVF to every single person I know! It is truly an amazing place to go to get healthy and strong. It is a great place for beginners or experts.
I always leave with a smile on my face and the feeling that I can take on the world!
