Member Spotlight – Greg S

“I am Greg Simpson.  I have lived in Colorado for 25+ years, my wife Renee is a native. We are both software engineers and dog parents.  I am a retired musician (drummer) and I stay involved with music by taking guitar lessons for fun. Renee is a retired musician and she pretty much dropped it all, sadly. We try to get up to Breckenridge to do some skiing as often as we can.  It keeps us moving in the winter months.

Renee is in remission from cancer and doing well.  As I talked with her doctors and mine, I got the message that it was time to lose weight. I have been a student of April’s since she started Faith Fitness, but I never really paid attention outside of the classes.

Once the covid shutdowns kicked in and my basement gym setup took away my excuses, I started paying more attention. The result has seen me lose a little over 30 pounds in the past year or so. It feels great and keeps my doctor happy. The only down side is that I had to buy all new pants.  But that is a good price to pay.

I am 57 years old and I feel like I am in the best shape of my life. I aim for 3 or 4 of the recorded sessions a week.  I try for lunch times and then aim for after work if I miss that. Between workouts and paying attention to what I eat, the results have made me pretty happy.

April is a great motivator and she makes up some good and challenging classes without a lot of repetition. The freedom to work out with her recordings on my schedule is just awesome.

Thanks April!  Keep up the good work.”
