Full-time, hardworking Speech Pathologist Melinda Cooper is on the path to feeling good and being accountable for her future.
As a 50-year-old wife and mom, Melinda began experiencing aches and pains. Her mother and grandmother both suffered from chronic arthritis, and she didn’t want to endure aches and pains for the rest of her life. “I’ve got to make a change,” she explains, “and I want to travel more and not be held back by body pains.”
Melinda made a change by joining Pledge To Fitness in Bellaire. Upon joining, she was given a non-invasive 3D fit scan that would accurately analyze her body measurements, allowing the trainers to pinpoint her goals and set up a routine tailored to her needs. “Alarming and terrifying,” Melinda said of her scan results, but in the two months she’s been with Pledge To Fitness, there has been a notable improvement that she has found very encouraging.
“My 14-year-old daughter noticed a difference,” she told me with a chuckle. “It just feels great, and I’ll keep doing what I’m doing.”
Pledge To Fitness has allowed Melinda to stay accountable. She has an individual one-on-one trainer who has helped her stick with the program. Other gyms may have tons of equipment, space, and amenities but without the type of expert, personalized training and support offered at Pledge To Fitness it’s all meaningless. Melinda has been teamed up with two different Pledge Coaches to address different needs, and she feels a strong connection to them. This connection is a big motivator in the Pledge To Fitness family.
Melinda wanted to start lifting weights and has now done so with the help of Coach Carlos, whose workouts are engaging, motivating, and keep her pushing for the next level. She wanted to resolve an old torn knee ligament injury and now has with the help of Coach and Pledge Massage Therapist Viviana, who has experienced and rehabbed similar injuries. Melinda wants to stay strong and feels she is doing exactly that. “My 14-year-old daughter noticed a difference,” she told me with a chuckle. “It just feels great, and I’ll keep doing what I’m doing.”
Melinda now works out three times a week at the studio and walks 2 miles a day on her own. “I don’t have any more aches and pains, which has made a big difference.” Studio owner and trainer Andres praises Melinda for being consistent and making time in her busy schedule to come to the gym, highlighting this as the key to her success. The Pledge To Fitness Team atmosphere has offered her positive support and kept her accountable.
Goals without action are just dreams, so we give kudos to Melinda for acting and turning her dreams into reality. Melinda has always wanted to run a marathon. She now feels like it’s a true possibility. We will be watching for your marathon debut!
