How Did You Get Started?

Looking back I can say I have always been involved in some sort of exercise. I started jogging back in high school my junior year, I was also on the drill team, gymnastics and cheerleading squad. After the birth of each of my 5 children I picked up the exercise of jogging to help lose the weight I had gained during the pregnancy.

It wasn't actually until May 1992, that I started to get serious about being fit and increased my daily jogging exercise from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Fourteen years later in February 2004, I decided I wanted to add some upper body strength so I started a weight resistance program, which has evolved into a six day a week 1.5 hour full body workout. I love the strength gains and beautiful muscle definition I have been able to achieve-something jogging alone could not do.
