At Xpress Fitness, we like to recognize our clients who remain dedicated and motivated to reach their health and fitness goals. For this client spotlight we would like to recognize Velva Blake (pictured right). Velva received her education from the University of Memphis. She currently works as a Accounts Receivable Specialist at TruckPro, LLC Corporate Offices. Her hobbies include reading, traveling and spending time with family.
We asked her why she enjoys being a member of Xpress Fitness? "I enjoy being a member of Xpress fitness because of the atmosphere. It helps to keep me accountable because when you work out with other people you tend to go just a little harder than you would if you were working out by yourself. I really enjoy the classes and once I leave the gym I still feel energized to do more. Xpress fitness to me is a place where I can come and get a great workout and still have fun while exercising. We are a group of friends, family, co-workers, & neighbors who will encourage each other to stay on track.”
What motivates me to work out is knowing I’m taking the first step on living a healthy/active life. This journey is all about a lifestyle change for me. I needed to do this for myself and my health. Now I just live and breathe it. Our bodies are said to be a temple of the Holy Spirit and we are called to take care of and honor God’s temple. There will always be someone fitter, faster, and more flexible than me but I don’t compare myself to them. I just continue to strive to be the best I can be. When I compare my quality of life now to how it used to be, I know all the hard work is worth it. A healthy, active life leads to a longer happier life. I don’t work out because I hate my body, I work out because I love it!”
