30 Minutes Towards a Better YOU!

I have never been one to do a lot of exercise. I never liked gym and was so happy when it became optional in high school. As an adult, I realized the importance of doing exercise. There are so many benefits to it physically and mentally.

I had hurt my wrist a few years ago and it was awful. I wore wrist braces/k-tape, went to the chiropractor and physiotherapist for years. I remember my physiotherapist telling me that I need to start doing exercise to gain muscle in my arms to prevent my wrist from hurting. I didn’t make too much of it when she told me and continued to visit her every few weeks for temporary pain relief. I started 9Round in September 2017 reluctantly as I knew there would be a lot of punching involved. I asked the trainers to tie the wrist wraps extra tight to prevent further injury. By the end of December, I noticed a significant improvement in my wrist. I no longer needed to wear the wrist brace while working all day on the computer. My physiotherapist told me that I had muscle and because of that my wrist had improved. She was right!

9Round Sage Hill has everything that I like – great environment, music, trainers; it’s a small community. Traditional gyms intimidate me because I’m not in shape and I don’t like to work on machines. This 30 minute workout gives me cardio; strength training and I feel great when I leave. Another example, I have never been able to do a sit-up EVER! Matt and the rest of the trainers never gave up on me and now I can do a sit-up and even more than one in a row. It was such a huge accomplishment for me!

I asked Matt, Certified 9Round trainer and manager, to be a guest on my blog today to give you all some more information on 9Round and the benefits!

    1. It’s hard to stay active but it’s so important. I’m really tiring to go twice/week and make time for it. Goodluck – I’m sure you’ll get back into the groove.

  4. I miss boxing so much! I used to go to a boxing gym, but I am reduced to walking and squats and prenatal videos. I’ll get back into the ring soon enough once I pop this baby out. Boxing is seriously the best total body workout!

    1. I’m so glad you enjoy boxing as well. It truly is a total body workout. Soon enough you’ll be there.Enjoy this precious time!

  5. That sounds great!! It is way better to have someone helping you out when training! I wish I had the motivation to keep up with that! Good job!!
