Q & A
Meet Perri, Mo-Mentum Fitness’s Superhero of February 2019! She definitely is a superhero!
Describe what your life (and your health) was like before fitness
“I’ve always tried to stay fairly active. If I don’t do some form of exercise several times a week, I get cranky. I try and stay active so that I can set an example for my husband and daughter that exercises is not something you do to lose weight, it’s something you do your entire life so that you have a better quality of life.”
Was there ever a low point or an experience that made your priorities change
How did fitness come into your life (or back into your life)?
“I was working out at another gym for several years, but the focus on fitness wasn’t there anymore. I was happy to join Momentum. I feel that the staff at Momentum has upped the ante for me, so to speak.”
What kind of results have you seen since starting a regular fitness program?
“Since being at Momentum, I have gotten much stronger. I remember when I first started, I used a set of old 6 pound weights and thought they were heavy! Then one of the gals scolded me and told me that I needed to increase my weight, and that I wasn’t allowed to use them anymore. Now I do about twice the amount and I definitely notice that my bingo arms are not as bad as they used to be. Also, when I went snowboarding over New Years, I noticed I wasn’t as winded as I was the year before.”
Why do you make fitness a priority in your life?
“I believe that I will probably live into my 80’s, and I want to have a good quality of life. I want to still be able to travel, ski and enjoy life in my later years. Also, I want to be able to do things with my grandchildren, should I be lucky enough to have them!”
These days what makes you truly happy and feel at peace?
“I’m happy when my family and friends are happy and healthy.”
How do you feel compared to 1 year ago?
“I would say about the same :)”
SPECIFICS? JOB? AGE? CHILDREN?
“I’m 55 and am a mom to a 15 year old daughter. My husband and I have been married for 18 years. I’m President of a non-profit organization called Women of the Wells. We build wells in under-developed countries around the world. “
