Jorge’s Member Spotlight Story:
TMR Member since January 2014
* Well, I have a lot to say about my journey in 2014 with The Motion Room. I started a year ago and wow! What an experience! A year ago, my first class started and how could I forget?! After a 5 minutes warm up, I was about to pass out. I couldn’t catch my breath and I as much as I wanted to push myself, I found I was struggling to stand after every single exercise. I felt like by the end of the 50 min class, I would need an ambulance to take me home LoL wink emoticon.
After a hard first few weeks, I started to notice that I could do much more than 5 push-ups, 5 jumping-jacks or stand on a Bosu ball for more than 15 seconds! In the months that passed by, I noticed my strength increase. I was be able to recover after every exercise much faster. I could push myself to do that extra bicep curl, squat, shoulder press or lunge. After half a year, I understood how much I loved to wake up every morning and I looked forward to my workout. I understood the goal behind every exercise. It was not just about pushing myself, but about performing each exercise to the best of my ability. It finally clicked that is not about QUANTITY, BUT QUALITY.
The Motion Room is such an important part of my life. It pushes me to get over those challenges and to live a better quality of life, especially in the long run. What better way to train than to be surrounded by the amazing TMR team. A team that from day one has played a very special role in reaching my goals, goals that are a long way from being complete, but I am much closer today than I was a year ago. For those who have just started, don’t get discouraged, it will get better. And for those who have been at TMR for a long time, thank you for being an inspiration. TMR thank you for being part of my accomplishments!!!
