Client of the Week – Mr. Roy 79 Years Old
Mr. Roy turned 79-years-old today, but you wouldn’t be able to tell his age if you watched him working out at Repke Fitness. He is agile, full of energy and challenges himself daily with physical exercise; he gardens for hours on end, goes on walks, does a morning exercise routine, and twice a week he comes to Repke Fitness for personal training sessions.
Mr. Roy is a Repke Fitness superstar. Out of all of our clients, he has had the most birthdays in life (his our wisest client). In 2013 (at 75), he started training with us. Today (4/30/17), is his birthday and we would like to wish him a very happy birthday. We love having him as a client because he’s a hard worker and is very inspiring to EVERYONE at our studio.
Mr. Roy hadn’t always been this way though; at 75-years-old, Mr. Roy found himself sitting around, doing nothing and gaining weight. Had he continued on this path, who knows where he would be today. Mr. Roy came to Repke Fitness’ personal training studio to get back into shape 4 years ago. Since then, he has lost 20 pounds and says that he has more energy now than ever before!
Mr. Roy is very, every active even on days he’s not working out at Repke Fitness. He typically gets well over 10,000 steps per day on his Fitbit. Something that even much younger people find challenging to do. He is an inspiration to everyone at Repke Fitness. Other clients who come to Repke Fitness often ask about him because they see how hard he works out. True story, a new client thought he was a personal trainer at Repke Fitness. She had saw his video on our website and assumed he must be a trainer.
Mr. Roy also inspire our personal trainers because we here so much excuses from clients. We often here clients say, “oh at my age, I can’t do this or that because of my age etc.” Not Mr. Roy, sometimes we have to tell him take a break. In the last 4 years, training Mr. Roy has been very rewarding to us. Since he started, he now brings his neighbor Mr. Pete to train with him as well. They’re good buddies and close in age. It’s great to see and have clients realize that it’s never to late to start a workout program.
