Our August 2019 client spotlight is dedicated to Hope Ferguson!
Xpress Fitness: Tell us a little about who you are, what you do?
Hope: My name is Hope S. Ferguson. I am a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Memphis, TN. I am also a Lieutenant in the US Navy Reserves Nurse Corp. I am the Committee Chair with the Tennessee Association of Nurse Anesthetist for the Political Action Committee and the Nominating Committee.
Xpress Fitness: What do you like to do in your free time when you are not working or working out at Xpress Fitness? Fun Fact?
Hope: In my free time, I like to travel. I enjoy taking trips. Some of my trips this year alone have been to Rota, Spain, Montego Bay, Jamaica, and coming up soon Iceland. I also enjoy seeing the newest movie release in theaters. I also enjoy seeing a live band, dancing, and bowling.
Xpress Fitness: How is training with us different than other gyms and how have we helped you?
Hope: Training is different with Xpress Fitness in relation that the gym is really a family and everyone is encouraging each other regarding accountability. With the family atmosphere, I have continued to be encouraged to continue on my fitness goals. Although every day is not a great day, I pick myself up and continue to come in to push myself forward.
Xpress Fitness: What motivates you to work out and maintain a healthy lifestyle?
Hope: Two years ago, I had a little bit of a health scare, which encouraged my lifestyle change. During my yearly physical check-up, my doctor notified me that my blood pressure was in the hypertension stage 1 phase and that my cholesterol was 256 which normal level is less than 200. The motivation for me to continue to work out is the fact that two years later I have dropped my blood pressure into normal range of healthy living and my cholesterol is now down in normal limits. I have also transformed my body. Although the scale for me really hasn’t changed, my body has totally transformed.
Xpress Fitness: What is your guilty pleasure food?
Hope: My guilty pleasure food simply said is sweets. I love candy such as, chews, taffy and skittles. Not a fan of chocolate.
Xpress Fitness: What advice do you have for somebody looking to start training?
Hope: The advice I have for somebody looking to start training is best said by saying just start. Everyone story is different and your gain and losses should not be compared to other people gains and losses. I am guilty of that and I work on that daily. For everyone that may be insecure and don’t want to start, jump in there and just have the confidence to start even if you are alone because I promise the journey won’t be traveled alone.
