Since moving to New York from Toronto in June 2013, Nabeel faced some challenges in which we all can relate. With the endless list of restaurants and bar options in NYC and working long hours, he had gone from 190 to 215 pounds. Driven by the desire to overcome mid-day tiredness, lower energy levels and offsetting daily stress from work, Nabeel started his fitness journey.
As we all normally do, Nabeel started out with what he was used to doing in the past: weight lifting. Unfortunately, he soon realized we was not in the physical shape he once was; he lacked motivation and energy to continue with this routine. When Nabeel tried Prime Cycle for the first time, he did not know what to expect. His first class was a positive one! He now cycles 3-4 times a week while supplementing his rides with weight lifting at least twice a week. Since joining us back in June he has lost an incredible 25 pounds!
With immediate results, the class environment and the help of the instructors giving him that extra boost to push himself to the next level, Nabeel keeps coming back to Prime Cycle. When on the go, using the Prime Cycle app helps him book for his favorite instructors, Julie and Dani, who motivate him to reach his top performance. Having a competitive nature, being able to track his stats for each class keeps him determined to improve.
We are proud to have Nabeel as a loyal, Prime Cycle rider, as we are with all our clients! Keep up the motivation and drive that Prime Cycle promotes. #FINDYOURPRIMEPOWER
This year our instructors set resolutions for themselves that fit their personalities, their goals and their lifestyle. Read below to feel inspired to stay on track through out the year with your resolution. Which instructor do you relate to?
This year Julie is inspiring her friends and family along with herself to get more out of their comfort zones. Setting a daily reminder on her cell phone to remind herself every morning when she wakes up to get a little more out of it. While Julie is teaching her classes she reminds her riders that they too can feel a little uncomfortable but it will feel so rewarding after going out of your comfort zone. Julie is also trying her best to cut out those curse words, you might start hearing her say "sprint your ducking butts off" while riding in her class. With her husband and her children's motivation they push her to be the best she can be and keeps her focused on the positive things in life! Alexa has set her resolution to revolve around a work/life balance. While not at Prime Cycle, Alexa is going to strive to see more friends, try new restaurants, visit more cities and be open to new plans. Keeping a healthy balance will result in personal happiness, as well as, the motivation to branch out and try new activities. She wants to send the message to the riders that staying happy and enjoying every day is the greatest gift you can give yourself! So stay active and busy doing things you love, with the people you love!
Dani doesn't do resolutions, she does reality checks. Crash diets, crazy cleanses, promises and restrictions never work. After 15 years in the fitness business Dani can say that what works is commitment, consistency, dedication and keeping it real with yourself over time 365 days 24/7. Hold yourself accountable, make a solid effort everyday to treat your body kindly and it will respond by giving you the results you want. YOU have to put the work in. You have to want it more than you don't. Skip the resolutions and the insane expectations, put one foot in front of the other and keep things moving in a positive direction. Drink some water and skip the alcohol too..that always helps! You go girl! Not only just subscribing to setting New Years resolutions, Abbey, aims towards daily intentions and monthly goals. She has learned that little pieces make the puzzle fit and with perseverance you can overcome those roadblocks that tend to get in the way towards your big goal. This year Abbey will taking it easier by raising up to gratitude when she feels fear and not submitting to being lowered when something feels hard. Instead, she chooses to make it easier by finding the thanks for a piece of it. With Spain already booked for March, Abbey, also plans on visiting two new counties that she has never seen before. Come check out Abbey Tuesday mornings at 7AM to help fulfill another 2016 resolution she has.. a wait list for her class! Lets Do This!
