kelly climbed mount picchu with the perfect workout's help!
Other workouts didn’t cut it for her, and she wasn’t seeing results. But the personalized training with The Perfect Workout set her on a new path. “I had never worked with a personal trainer before, and it’s been amazing having someone who’s really watching my form and looking out for me.”
“I was a non-believer.” When Kelly Gaynor first heard about The Perfect Workout on the radio two years ago, she thought it was too good to be true. How could 20 minutes, twice a week make a difference? Still, Kelly was intrigued. She stopped into the Walnut Creek studio for her first workout, and asked some tough questions about slow-motion strength training and what the average client looks like. “She looks like you,” the trainers told her. Knowing that she fit in to The Perfect Workout environment put Kelly at ease, and made her confident that she could do the training. Trying slow-motion strength training for that first day was a challenge, but Kelly faced it head-on, and she’s been a believer ever since.
One of the biggest things Kelly was looking for in a workout was something that would keep her youthful as she got older. “As one ages, you see people who are older and you know you’re going there. They can’t do things they used to do. I didn’t want that to be my future.” At 61, she knew she needed to keep active. Other workouts didn’t cut it for her, and she wasn’t seeing results. But the personalized training with The Perfect Workout set her on a new path. “I had never worked with a personal trainer before, and it’s been amazing having someone who’s really watching my form and looking out for me.”
Kelly had torn her ACL and had three knee surgeries in the past, so she prioritizes safety when working out. Her two trainers, Rob and Danica, always respond to her needs and adjust each exercise to make sure she isn’t straining or hurting herself. Their care and motivation have paid off. When she started with The Perfect Workout, Kelly could lift 155 lbs. on the leg press. Today, she can lift 235! She’s also gone from 50 to 75 lbs. on the lat pull down, and increased significantly on every other machine.
Kelly’s newfound strength paid off when she traveled to Peru recently to climb to the famous valley of Machu Picchu. “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I had never hiked before, and this is one of the toughest hikes in the world!” But because of her newfound muscle and energy, she knew she could conquer it. A few times on the trek, her husband suggested they turn around, but Kelly wasn’t having it. Eventually, she reached the top and it was all worth it. Ultimately, she climbed over 2,100 feet—the equivalent of climbing the Empire State Building 1.7 times. “Thank you Danica Cramer, Rob Wight, and The Perfect Workout. You helped me climb Machu Picchu!”
