RehabFit April’s Member of the Month – Tara Stark
Tara has been a member of RehabFit since January 2018! Tara has been very motivated to stick to her weekly routine. She has referred many friends and co-workers to RehabFit and now has company to exercise with!
Why did you decide to join RehabFit?
I joined RehabFit when my doctor highly recommended I begin exercising regularly due to my high cholesterol and type two diabetes.
What changes have you seen in your body or made in your lifestyle since you have joined?
I have changed the way I eat by staying away from processed food and carbohydrates. I also incorporate exercise into my daily routine. I have lost weight, I sleep better at night, and my stress levels have decreased!
What motivates you to keep coming to RehabFit?
What motivates me to keep exercising is my health. I know that I do not want to go back to the hospital, I do not want to rely on medication, therefore I am motivated to continue coming to RehabFit. The clean gym and friendly and knowledgeable staff make me want to keep coming back.
What kind of advice would you give to other RehabFit members?
Get the most out of your exercise – Don’t be afraid to ask for help or change up your program, or try new classes!
