Q/A with Lydia
What are your favorite things to do?
Hanging out with my family and kids.
My favorite place to eat:
Modern American & Asian Fusion: MKT, Manolin, Issian, Yoroshinku, Joule.
Family Friendly: Tutta Bella, Kozue.
Do you remember when you started our classes and why?
I started with Dillon as my personal trainer in 2004 when she was at Sound, Mind and Body and I have followed as she grew her business. I started with a personal trainer because I found that I didn’t have the discipline to go on my own for fitness – it is easy to prioritize other things. A regular schedule and connection with a personal trainer helps to make sure I make time for fitness. I enjoy the session as an oasis from the rest of life.
What are some health and fitness goals you have achieved since being here?
I was wimpy when I started all those years ago. My first meeting with Dillon was a fitness test to see where I was at. At that time, I couldn’t do push ups, couldn’t lift much, and had limited flexibility. I am now a much stronger person and can do all of those things.
What is a quote that you live by?
I am aspiring to put on my positive pants.
Anything else you’d like to say about your experience at the Fitness Lab?
Dillon is fantastic, exactly what I needed as fitness coach who has helped me through the last 15 years with two pregnancies and growing older (but stronger) everyday!
About Dillon Kreider
Certified personal trainer and owner of SOMA TRAINING. I can’t imagine a better job – every day, I get to help people improve their lives and achieve things they never thought possible. To see the gains in strength (I just watched a woman who used to struggle with knee push-ups rip off 20 standard push-ups) and confidence that come with fitness is truly inspiring.
