NEEDHAM, Mass., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthy women are proudly crossing the 5K finish line and entering into a new lifestyle of improved wellbeing thanks to Get In Shape For Women.
Novice runner Kasey Kahler is one of the fifteen Get In Shape For Women (GISFW) clients who ran their first race at the Marshfield St. Patrick's Day 5K. An emotional experience, Kahler went in uncertain about finishing, but was convinced when her daughter and husband motivated her forward while waving and cheering at the Marshfield Sea Wall.
As a client of GISFW, Kahler has been training 3 days a week doing High Intensity Interval Training (HITT) along with 25 minutes of weight training. HITT is a form of cardiovascular exercise in Get In Shape For Women workouts that continues to burn calories for approximately 2 hours after the workout is complete. She has followed the nutrition program religiously and knows that her commitment to making major changes is what enabled her body to transform and lose 15 lbs of body fat.
"I totally cut out soda and I really care about being healthy. I want to learn to eat better and teach my daughter to eat well too. I just want to be in shape, be healthy, and better my life," shares Kahler about her experience and goals at GISFW.
Kahler knows she will continue participating in 5K races now that she's completed her first. As her body becomes even leaner and stronger from the weight training workouts at the Get In Shape For Women studio in Marshfield, she will surely see more races and more results!
"The combination of weight training and High Intensity Interval Training plus smart nutrition and accountability is THE number one way to lose weight, burn calories, and develop lean muscle mass," states Marshfield Studio owner Jon Knochel. "My team is so very proud of Kasey and all the 5K runners from our GISFW studio. They are training their bodies for long term health benefits."
