TMR Member Spotlight Feature
One of the most emotional and heartfelt entries we received, this anonymous TMR Member opened up about the importance of health and fitness in her life.
For over two years, my husband and I have been trying to conceive. It has been one of the hardest things to go through. At the end of December we found out our latest attempt didn’t work and we were devastated. Every month we find out we’re not pregnant a little part of me gives up. Will it ever happen for us?
The last year has not been easy. I got into a car accident, I lost my job of 12 years and I had a miscarriage. I’m grateful that I walked away from the accident and that I could take some time off to refocus my career, but the miscarriage was hard to swallow since it took us a year and a half to get pregnant.
After taking some time to grieve, I decided to get proactive about getting pregnant again. I saw a hypnotherapist, an RMT and an acupuncturist all that specialize in treating fertility issues. All that on top of going to a fertility clinic and I’m no closer to being pregnant.
Since seeing all these specialists, I’ve been told not to start exercising (I haven’t regularly exercised in over three years) because I was told it would be too much of a shock to my system while trying to conceive. But after the latest negative test, I decided to stop everything – take a month off from going to the fertility clinic, stop spending money on specialists, and put myself first. So I signed up at The Motion Room for a month.
TMR has done wonders for my mental health. I’m not as depressed anymore. I feel better about my body, I ‘m eating healthier and I actually look forward to going to the gym. The trainers are friendly and I feel like they’ve taken a personal interest in my journey and my progress has been nothing short of amazing.
On my first day at TMR, I hated push-ups. I was barely able to do three in a row. After one week, I could do 20. Talk about results!
TMR has helped me refocus my life and I couldn’t be more grateful. I have no doubt a positive test will come our way and I believe the impact TMR has had on my life will be one big reason why. Until then, I look forward to doing more push ups.
Thank-you for opening up to us. We are happy to be a part of your journey and wish you all the best in the coming years.
