Operating as usual
Josh came to his first class hesitantly, bc friends/previous clients of FTM Gym said he should. Here's what he says after surviving his first one!
"I'd like to come Thursday’s for sure. If my schedule allows I want to make it to one other class during the week, but for sure Thursdays. I’m still sore from Thursday but it feels good. Like it lets me know what areas I’m out of shape in, and it also lets me know that what we did was beneficial."
From our friend Torrey -
"I am Torrey (they/them) standing on Tiwa land.
To all my friends on their journey to health and a better relationship with their bodies, I would like to introduce you to Wade, owner of FTM: Freedom to Move, the best Zoom work out class I have been privileged to observe."
It's real life working out at home!🤣🤣
Liz says "it felt great to workout today after having to miss several weeks due to the demand at work." Awesome job being able to get back into it and giving 110% in your workout today...

Abel says "During COVID times need to get creative with workouts findings new ways to stay active!
Cory says "Had a blast at April's first Pumpersize class. It was so much fun and it was great to spend time with Ashley, Liz, Sue and April and Wade and I set a new record of working out 30 minutes. Woot Woot! If you want a little cardio and a little fun come join us next week."
Sarah says "Jackson and the dogs insisted on being part of our couples session last night 😂 felt good to workout with wife again ❤️ thanks April for the Virtual training ❤️"
and Ashley said "Couples workout with Sarah, April handed our butts to us with this virtual workout! Felt good to workout with my honey again!!!"
Liz says "Holy cow! Another awesome 1 on 1 Virtual session with April Hawk. I warmed up 6 minutes on the bike and 2 minutes bicep burnouts. Then walked down my driveway and back before my session even started. Every exercise was 3 minutes and she brought it and kicked my ass. 1st exercise was 4 different which ever I could do Russian twists with or without a kettlebell, crunches, planks, next was step ups with a sink squats, hip raises, mountain climbers, hammerheads to shoulder raises started with 7#'s and dropped all the way to 2lbs. Next skull crushers I liked those, sides with 15 lb. kettlebell dropped to 7# when I felt pain in the left side of myhip/back. Had rows then last exercise was step up to a chair alternating legs. Most everything was a 10, a few 9's. Got a sweat going on. Yeah!! Pics to ?
This is Apri's very first client that she has worked with a year and a half. What an amaaazing transformation inside and out!
Here's what Ms Rita says " This is a combination of Monday and Wednesday's workouts. That Kettle bell is no joke. Try lifting 9 lbs when your arms are already fatigued. And the wall push ups when you chest is still sore from the Flys on the stability ball. But I feel great. Being transparent right now. I really debated over adding my transformation pic. Even though the pic is proof, I still do not see it. I still feel like I'm the pic from 2019. And before you get started with your comments and intervention, let me be clear, I'm ok and I know I've put in the work. I'm just telling my own truth right now and my trainer and my family have already given me the pep talk. #workingonme #nopainnogain #canyouseethetransformation 💪🏾💪🏾 @ Freedom To Move Gym"
Miss Rita says "I had a great workout today. Before I started working out with April, I would have good intentions when I said I was going work out at home. I would either give up before I got started or I would quit early because I could or lack of motivation. I have a goal in mind and I really want to get there, so I'm at it again. Modifications for my lower back and knees, 4 minutes each. Y'all 4 minutes is a long time my muscles were burning. #buildingstrength #ronacouldntstopme #movingforward @ Freedom To Move Gym"
72 years old?? Doesn't matter!
"Ok. I finally have the energy to type. That was a heck of a workout! I'm feeling pretty good today, so it's all good.
I finally got my lats involved - they were very sore yesterday, thanks for the help with form!
My whole back was sore, top to bottom.
My hamstrings and glutes made walking difficult yesterday(In a good way).
My shoulders, front, back, and sides were sore.
In general, I was wiped out.
My abs are feeling stronger and I'm seeing more definition in my upper arms. Yay!"

Liz says "Awesome 1 on 1 Virtual session with April. 3 minutes per exercise. I came into this session not feeling it I was emotionally not with it, but April got me to let it go and pushed me to my limits. Bike was 1st same sport 3 minutes and sprints in between, did step ups, sink chair squats, triceps, 21 30 seconds 2 times around 3 different exercises. Plank walkouts were the last exercise, by the time I was done I couldn't get off the floor. I could hear Sue and Ashley in my hear saying you got this get it
Pics to follow.
Miss Rita says "Ok so this was actually on Wednesday evening, but better late than never. When I tell you that I can still feel every muscle we worked, that's no joke. Especially my glutes!!! Glute pulses with the red rubberband for 3 minutes. That 3 minutes felt like a lifetime. Do not sit down and say you will do it when the gym fully reopens. Do it now!! Working out at home or in the park will get the job done. I'm learning how to be accountable to myself and not make the excuses I was making before. Am I at my goal? No I'm not, but I feel great and I'm working on it. I'm not preaching to anyone, but myself. I've got a lot of free time and I might as well use it. #michellobamaarms #strengthening 💪🏾💪🏾"
Each one of these ladies have a busy schedule, but they still find time to commit to their health and longevity! I never put any expectations on their workouts, yet all I ask is that they try and at the end of the workout they are very grateful and on their own accord have pushed themselves to the limit! I couldn't ask for more as a trainer and by trying their best, they are able to reach or even surpass their goals!
This is what we do with our Sunday evening. #bullfrog #workout #outside #fun #FTM #freedomtomove #lgbtqia #frogworkout

Ms. Cheryl never ceases to amaze us with her can do attitude and willingness to step outside her comfort zone more and more! Although she can't work with April in person right now, the bond and trust they have built can surpass any restriction in place and they manage to have fun and get the job done nonetheless!
Miss Rita says "Well look who's back!!! I am doing VTS(Virtual Training Sessions). It was a bit of a challenge for me today, since I haven't worked out since March 10th and I'm used to my trainer being in the same room. April was there online with a good workout for my upper body. Now I've got to work on my core again. I thought not having weights or the other equipment was going to be an issue. (it be will here May 6th) How about a case of water, a bottle of Bleach & my stability ball got me through this workout. So I no longer have an excuse, household items work just as well. When I started this journey, my goal was to lose weight to have knee replacement surgery. But working out saved my life. #ivegotatestimony #ireallydowantmichelleobamaarms #addingsomemoretomywhy @ Freedom To Move Gym"
Melanie says "I have to be honest, I was a little....well OK a lot skeptical about doing a Virtual Training Session. But let me just say that it kicked my butt, literally 😂. Wade Hawk was patient enough to work through my skepticism and gave me an at home work out with the equipment I already had. I am now a believer!"

Marissa says "Another great work out with the hunny. Nothing like a nice full body workout to start your day!
Sue messaged me and says "Hi! I need to tell you a little story-I was running for the bus this morning and when I got on, a guy was looking at me with his eyes wide open and his mouth open. I sat behind him so I asked him if he was OK? He said he was amazed how well I ran and I was not gasping for air. I told him I had been exercising for a year and it was paying off! When he got off the bus!"
