My name is Kay Keiffer. I have been married to my husband, Doug, for 35 years. We have three grown children. I am the owner and stylist of "Kay's Hair" located 913 St Rt 28 Milford, Ohio. I have been a Milford resident for 17 years
My fitness journey began about 3 years ago, when I was so sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time. I had tried everything on the planet to lose weight. I decided to try a personal trainer this time. I had about 85 lbs to lose! I found Mike Hammond, a N.A.S.M certified personal trainer at Fit4you. We worked together as a team! Our personalities just clicked and I knew I had a good one. He pushed me harder than I would ever push myself. He encouraged me and believed in me. I was about 8 months into my training and had lost about 50 lbs when I had a horrible motorcycle accident. With a lot of broken bones to heal, I was down and out for about 5 months. I lost a lot of muscle, but didn't gain any weight back. However, I was weak and had to start once again with Mike to get me back to where I was before my accident.
I was a member of planet fitness for 3 years, where I started my journey for getting healthy and fit. However, I reached a point in my fitness level that I needed more than what Planet Fitness had to offer. Mike suggested I join MAC to go farther in my fitness level. So, I did and my progress has soared because MAC has so much more to offer to those who want to take it to another level! The staff is very friendly and welcoming! They have so much to offer for a smaller gym! I just love it there!!
My word of advice would be to invest time and money on a good certified personal trainer. If you are willing to put in the hard work, they will get the weight off! I have been working with Mike for over 3 years. He keeps me accountable, which keeps me on track! A personal trainer will help you with your fitness goals to do it safely and effectively.
This has been literally a life changing journey for me! I am 55 years old and I feel and look better than what I did in my 20s. I never ever want to go back to the unhappy, unhealthy person that I was. This is my lifestyle now – loving life and all it has to offer!
