Let's Avoid The F*@K Its!!

As soon as pumpkin spice hits the menu, it seems as if on que our nutrition habits and other health goals are tabled until "the new year". We want to challenge all of our members to utilize these next 3 months to work on maintaining or starting new habits and setting new goals. You will or may have already gotten a questionnaire at your workout to help you get started so you don't come down with a case of the f*@k its!

Overcoming Obstacles:

Join us on November 5th at 9am as we welcome special guest Bobby Reidelberger. We are excited to hear him share his inspirational story of prioritizing his health and taking part in physical challenges like completing a marathon despite living a life in a wheelchair.

Client Spotlight:

Congratulations to our October spotlight client, Bobbi Johnson! She is an awesome client to work with and is never afraid to try new things like completing her first biathlon and 5K this past summer. She is also a valuable member of our Pulse softball team. We look forward to watching Bobbi's success story continue unfolding and are so excited to be a part of it!

Bobbi's Story:

I started my weight loss journey in January of 2020 after receiving some devastating bloodwork results. I knew I was playing with fire, but it didn’t really hit me until the doctor wanted to prescribe several medications. I knew at that point I had to do something. In my life I have tried every diet under the sun and was always successful at losing 20-30 pounds only to fall off the wagon and regain it. I knew this time had to be different. I worked to incorporate movement, eat more nutrient dense foods, and relearn how to view food (no more good food vs bad food). I focused on staying in a calorie deficit by tracking my food/drink intake and walking. Those were the 2 things I did to lose 115lbs, however I felt I needed to do more than just walking, I wanted to be strong! I ran into my neighbor, Suzi Kollmann walking one day and she told me about Pulse and what they do. From the moment I walked in the door everyone was so welcoming and made you feel just like family. Jeff, Josh and Tina have been so amazing to work with and push to you to accomplish your goals. When you say “I can’t do that” they say “yes you can”.  And well they are right! I can do it!  I have accomplished so many things in the last year because of Pulse! They are always there to listen and help you through any fitness struggle or goal you have! I am grateful for my newfound family at Pulse and look forward to crushing more goals with them by my side! 

Josh's Recipe Recommendations:

Check out these delicious recipes! The sweet potato is a different spin than other stuffed potatoes I've tried, and the squash was something brand new for me. Both recipes are very easy and tasty. If you give them a try, please share a picture and your review in our Facebook group!
