This week I signed on an 89 year old client this week and I'm OBSESSED with her.
Here's the story. I got a call from Elaine on Wednesday – she left a voice mail saying she was interested in a personal trainer. I could tell from her voice that she was over 18 but had no idea what I was in for. I started to call her back to let her know that I was too busy and couldn't take on another client… then she told me she was 89! Wow! So impressive that she's calling me looking for a personal trainer. As soon as I heard that I knew that I needed to meet her. In University I took an exercise and aging class and really loved it so that was a good start off point for exercise ideas and plan development. Her goals are simple – she wants to improve her balance for the winter ahead and get in and out of chairs with more ease. SO great. SO inspiring… I hope I'll be calling trainers at 89.
We've had two sessions already and she's just the cutest little lady ever. I feel like I am her contemporary … Matt always calls me his little 80 year old. Love her.
She has inspired me SO much this week.
