    13thirty Fit – Working Out Together!

    You know that exercise is always more challenging with a friend. Whether you’re hitting the gym together, being nutrition-conscious, or meeting up for a run, you help each other reach your goals and feel great together at the same time! Now imagine a class of about 10 people, specifically designed for those of us who have come through surgeries, undergoing cancer treatments of various degrees, and various levels of fitness capabilities. Talk about upping the ante!

    At 13Thirty Fit, every Wednesday night, we are pushed, challenged and changed together. We are choosing to make time for ourselves, encouraging each other—no matter what our week has looked like, what difficult situations we’ve faced, or how we’re feeling!

    Another big piece of 13thirty Fit is nutrition. This past Wednesday, we were taken back to our childhood snacks (in this case, “ants on a log” with locally produced Once Again Nut Butter) and discussed the importance of a whole-foods and nutrient-rich diet. Exercise is important, but what you put in to your body is even more vital to daily health!

    As we build up to two 5Ks this May, I’m determined to keep pushing the limits and challenging myself. Cancer is a tough battle and knowing that you’re surrounded by a community of like-minded friends, who are working hard right alongside of you, is so uplifting and inspiring. Making our bodies fit, healthy and strong is the goal—but growing together and creating a safe, understanding community as we continue on our journey is the true reward.
