In March, I contacted IF to start a weight training plan. I knew I needed weight bearing exercise and I would follow through if I had a schedule and someone to put me through the paces. Jim convinced me to start right away despite my busy spring schedule. I’m so glad I did. The strength and endurance I gained training at IF made a big difference this year with my goal to complete my second 10 mile swim event. My swim partner had to stop swimming in early June so my swim training took a hit. I put in less time in the lake but was putting in time strength training and cardio on the elliptical. The team at IF tailored my workouts to what I needed for my shoulders, endurance and stretching exercises days before my event. The increased core and shoulder/arm strength carried me the hour over any training swim I’d completed this summer.
I look forward to setting new goals (I’m only planning to swim 5 miles next) and reaching them with IF.
