Lacey Peterson is the Athlete of the Month for March!
HERE IS WHAT SHE HAS TO SHARE WITH US ABOUT HER JOURNEY SINCE JOINING FRFW:
“Gosh, I am so absolutely honored to be named Athlete of the month!! First and foremost, I would like to thank Robyn, Lisa, and Stephanie for being amazing coaches, pushing me to work hard during the workouts, and helping me work towards my goals. I would also like to thank my awesome friend Danielle Roper for telling me about this amazing gym and staying on me to get there!
The main reason that pushed me toward joining was my archery elk hunt in fall of 2016. I was hunting with my boyfriend, his best friend and his uncle. Now mind you I am trying to keep up with grown men, walking miles upon miles, up and down mountains. I didn’t do any conditioning over the summer and it definitely was a struggle at times! I kept going though and stayed right there with them. After the season was over I was thinking to myself, if I had shot something how would I have packed out this massive animal in the shape I was in? I could have done it, but my point is I don’t want it to be a major struggle. I want to be able to climb those mountains, pack out those animals, and kick the hunts butt!!
I started this journey around Christmas; I definitely struggled with getting to the gym and keeping a healthy diet. I was very discouraged and there were times when I didn’t go to the gym at all! Being 25 years old, I’m thinking to myself WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? I was letting my coaches and the ladies around me down! I told myself you should be making it to gym and getting into the shape you want to be in. After the New Year something just clicked. I have been seeing a difference in my body and how much my body can handle. It is definitely amazing when you put in the work what your body can do and how strong you can become mentally and physically. I have moments like anyone else where I don’t see a difference or convince myself I don’t see any change. This is what keeps me coming back, I want to see those muscles come in and my body change. Being strong is the new sexy!!
I see how hard all of you work to meet your goals and it is VERY motivating for me. When I feel myself wanting to quit I look around the room and see you ladies working your butts off, that’s what keeps me going!! I have quite a ways to go, but I know with all the support from every single one of you ladies in this gym I can get there!” Lacey
