In 2013 I started working out at the gym. In June of 2014 I got married. Of course, in true bride fashion, I wanted to look amazing and I needed to lose some weight. I started personal training 3 days a week with Vern! We hit it off immediately! I know how to workout, I know what I need to eat but knowing is waaaaay easier than doing. So, I turned to Vern for the support, guidance and motivation I needed. I loved working out again!, and it was so much nicer having a big smile and ball of energy to see when I walked in those doors. I didn't even know I was getting my ass kicked! Let's be real, it hurt and it was hard but I laughed the whole time! Or, I sang, and my voice is awful but Vern would just sit there and laugh with me:) it wasn't easy being my coach! I have a medical condition that could flare at any time, and it did. I also had old sports injuries that reared their ugly head whenever they could! However, Vern took these opportunities to show me new stretches and take care of me. I could go on and on about my experience with him but I'm sure I will run out of room soon. Vern, I am so happy to see you following your dreams and still smiling through the hard times. Keep it going!
