Christy was contemplating a career change when she met Beth, owner of CareerFit Mom. “I was thinking of going to grad school, while also applying for new jobs. Beth helped me with my applications and resumes.”
But it was Beth’s positive energy that was the biggest benefit.
“It was great to have someone be positive, but also objective. I felt supported and empowered.”
Since then, Christy has felt empowered to set a new goal – to incorporate fitness into her life.
“Fitness is not something I grew up with. It’s not something I liked. And, it’s not something that I find easy,” she explains honestly.
“I did it for myself, but I also wanted my son to see that women take care of themselves. I wanted to give him that example.”
So, while the idea seemed daunting, Christy hired Beth for personal training at home. Despite her husband’s demanding schedule and her commitments with her son, this enabled her to establish a weekly fitness commitment and become more comfortable with the exercises in private. After a year, she had the confidence to join group fitness classes.
“With Beth’s support, I feel less self-conscious and enjoy exercising with my new friends. I also feel like I am taking care of my body and my lifestyle reflects my body type – now I am athletic.
“This is a long-term process for me and I couldn’t have done this without CareerFit Mom.”
