“The Iron is the best antidepressant I have ever found. There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength. Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it’s impossible to turn back. The Iron never lies to you.”
I have found myself again, lifting weights! I am always trying to workout and eat healthy, its my never ending battle. 3 years ago I lost 70 pounds doing Orange Theory and this is also how I met Lori. All of a sudden 6 HIIT workouts a week were getting very hard on my body and I was experiencing many injuries. I also came to the realization I was 52 and in menopause. Lori stuck with me and let me do my madness of too many workouts. She recently gave me a book about menopausal women and how so many things are changing in our body. I listened to Lori and I listened to my body. In the last 8 weeks I have released 15 inches off my body. This is what I am doing. I am dedicated to hitting the weights 3 days a week with Lori. I get to do this with my daughter Julia and this is an added blessing!
Lori makes up some of the best workouts that challenge me. I am getting stronger then I was in my 30s and 40s. I still go to OT two days a week and I am walking as much as I can. I am seeing muscles again that I have not seen since my 20s. It was very hard to change my mindset of more weights and less HIIT workouts, but its working for me. I am losing but also changing the shape of my body. Jeans are fitting again! Most importantly, I feel strong and empowered. This body will grow older, but so much stronger. W.O.W. has been one of the best things to happen for me. Lori Castellini is my coach, my "therapist" and my friend!!!
