Reach Intro

  • Jul 6th, 2018 at 10:49PM

Hello! I'm Gisèle. I live in Toronto with my husband and two teens, 18 and 16. I'm a televison-web content producer.

I really enjoy exercising and working out. I need to work out everyday, if not, I feel miserable. I'm happy doing a class at the gym, cycling, hiking or just going out for a long walk. I really enjoy the outdoors. (gotta get out of the city!) I've done 7 Kenzai programs. Finished Iron in May.

I've been wanting to do Reach for a while but was always a bit reticent. I like to sweat and work hard, and was afraid that Reach wouldn't do it for me. I think I'll probably want to add a bit of cardio and weights to my program and needed to have time to do all that. I'll be on vacation for about three or four weeks of this program, so I should be able to fit it all in. That being said I really need Reach....I really need to work on my flexibility....

My goal is to do the splits like the girl on that first post.....but I'll keep it realistic so if I can touch my toes while seated by the end of this.....I'll be ecstatic!

As for the karaoke go-to song.....I'll say Breathe by Faith Hill. Breathe because you know....we seem to be doing a lot of it in Reach....so much so that I sometimes feel like I'm hyperventilating by the end of the workout. And as for Faith Hill....I grew up on a farm, so I think I've got some country hidden deep down......and when I'm alone in the car, on the highway, driving back to the farm....I tune into a country station and belt out some sappy boy, girl and pick-up truck tunes.

Looking forward to reaching with everyone!

    Country music? I didn’t know that about you!

      Fantastic summer to be having a holiday. You must be glad you are near the lake. I plan to weave some resistance in too. I just finished sculpt and there was strength every second day. Maybe I’ll try to follow that. Sing away!

        The country music is just for solo car rides. There is always a story in the lyrics and country melodies tend to be simple for someone who can’t sing....like me!

          With all that vacation time ahead of you I am sure you’ll have an aweseome time combining reach with additional workouts! Wishing you a fun program!

            Using vacation time to focus on your fitness is advanced thinking! Wouldn’t expect to hear something like that from a newbie! 😄 I have a feeling that you will be palming your toes closer to program completion! 👍

              Welcome, Gisele. Reach will feel altogether different. This will present challenges. And where there are challenges, there is growth. Slow down and lean in!
