CLIENT SPOTLIGHT – SUSAN CLARK

Susan Clark is 54 years old. She is a native Floridian.. actually, a native Miamian. 😄She has been a “stay-at-home domestic goddess” for 28 years now, and she is a calligrapher by hobby.

Susan had just lost her mother after being her primary care taker for many years. She had picked up some bad habits like smoking and just wasn’t exercising like she had been before. She used to do half marathons and training, but she let that all go for at least a year while she had cared for her mother. Susan was feeling a little low. 

While scrolling on Facebook one night, she found a fitness challenge and felt like it was a message, so she called the number and spoke to Lyonel – she was thankful that Lyonel gave her so much time. She told him all about her dirty little secrets, like the smoking, which she was embarrassed about. Lyonel told her to come by the gym so that they can chat some more in person. And that’s when she signed up for the challenge.

She completed the challenge and felt really good. She felt motivated and was happy that she showed up. The accountability factor was huge for her. She felt that Lyonel had a vested interest in his clients. He spoke to her on days that she felt really off and wasn’t feeling like her utmost fittest, fantastic self. He would motivate her by saying, “You got this” or he would give her a hug. There were many times when she counted on that.

The clients that Lyonel attracts seem to be like-minded. The gym didn’t feel like other gyms that she had been to where everybody is just buff and fit. Lyonel’s gym has all different ages, ranges, and capabilities. She feels good at LyonStrong. She feels like she found her tribe.

Before she started at LyonStrong, she felt very unmotivated. She felt like she couldn’t breathe at times and very unhealthy. Since then, it has definitely been a progression. She now feels extremely strong. She has not lost all the weight that she wanted to lose, but she feels very very fit, and her movement is unbelievable. She feels like she moves very well and feels extremely nimble.

In the beginning, Susan felt like she had two left feet with the Functional Patterns training, but now she feels a lot more connected and she can move much better, which has also raised her self-esteem and has her definitely feeling better overall.

LyonStrong has impacted her lifestyle because she now has more stamina. Since she moves better and she’s not hurting, she’s not having to rest. She feels like she has energy throughout the whole day.

LyonStrong has changed Susan’s life by giving her a commitment, a place to go to where she knows she is going to be missed if she doesn’t show up. She is not going to feel good if she doesn’t go, it affects her mood. So on days when she doesn’t feel like going to the gym, she knows that if she goes, she will feel so much better afterwards. It has all been positive for her.

Susan has made incredible strides. She’s been working with me for about 2 and a half years, and I’m so proud of her… especially because she quit smoking!

If you’re on the fence about starting your fitness journey with LyonStrong, Susan says, “Just start! But just make sure to give it at least 3 months minimum, and if you want to be fair with yourself, then give it 6 months to really see the changes – mentally, physically, and with your stamina.”

SUSAN’S FUN FACTS:

Favorite Quote: “Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not. Remember that what you now have, was once among the things you only hoped for.” – Epicurus

“Changing your routine or changing your style of workout where you may have thought that working out a certain way is beneficial, is hard for some people. Change is definitely the hardest thing for most people. But I would say to change it up a bit. Try something new!” – Susan Clark

It’s been a pleasure to have Susan as part of our LyonStrong family!

Her will power, willingness to try new things, and positive input has truly been admirable.

We are so grateful to be a part of her journey.
