What made you hit “download”?
I liked what I saw when I looked at the preview – the varied workouts and the personalized plan. The workouts looked like something I could do when I was traveling and I was impressed by the positive reviews.
What was your first workout like?
I began by following the personalized, full-body workout plan and I found the first workout very challenging even though it was only 10 minutes. I didn't let that discourage me. Knowing that there was a workout for me to do each day and that there was a weekly goal to achieve, I was able to stay motivated. It also helps that the workouts are only around 10-20 minutes long.
Have you noticed any changes in yourself – before and after using 8fit?
Yes definitely, I have a lot more strength and stamina than I did before.
What's your favorite 8fit recipe?
The crustless spinach quiche has been a hit with the family and I have prepared that a few times.
What’s your ‘why’? Why did you begin this journey, why do you keep it up?
I have always liked to keep fit but I travel a lot which makes it hard to stick to a routine. Once I began using the 8fit app, I was able to maintain a fitness routine both at home and when traveling. The workouts are easy to do in a small hotel room and you don't really need a gym space.
What advice do you have for someone just getting started?
Try following the personalized workout plan to progressively build on your fitness. It's also a great way to get to know the exercises and to learn your way around the app.
Do you have a favorite quote, mantra, or motto?
If you continuously compete with others, you become bitter, but if you continuously compete with yourself, you become better.
