My name is Nancy Leonard and I’ve been coming to No Limit for 10 years. My life is great, I’m stronger than I’ve ever been, and I have more endurance than I’ve ever had. I feel more toned than I’ve ever had ever been before and all those things have led me to be able to recover from my injuries. I’ve had some injuries and some surgeries, all orthopedics, since I’ve been here because I am active. I had a total hip replacement, I’ve had a PRP injection for my tendonitis, and in my knee, I’ve had a glute tear and those are over the course of the last few 5 years. In each case, my trainer has worked with my physical therapist to my orthopedic doctor to help me get back to where I was prior to the injury. What motivates me to come here is that I want to stay healthy and I want to live a long life.
I am in the senior citizen group and there are a lot of seniors that come here and I think we all realize that you know not proper nutrition obviously is a key but also exercise and staying strong and being fit so that should something happen to you you can recover and all of us that train here. I do other things outside the gym that are active physically, we may not compete in competitive sports but whether you’re 16 or 60 you’re going to be active if you come here outside the gym and you’re prone to injury and so you want to be able to recover from that and continue to live the fullest life you can possibly live outside the gym. I come to the gym to take care of myself because I want to live long, want to live as long as I possibly can and not just live, but I want to thrive
I want to be able to enjoy life outside the gym to the fullest extent that I possibly can because I’m healthy and that’s my physical health and that’s my mental health so one of my biggest enjoyments is being in the outdoors going to national parks, hiking, swimming in the ocean, diving, snorkeling and that takes strength and endurance and I wouldn’t have it unless I was here at the gym and so I want to be able to live and enjoy children my children and my grandchildren as long as I possibly can and that’s why I’m here.
