Endometriosis, PCOS, Hypothyroidism and VMAX

Two weeks ago I finally took the plunge and went and tried out the new VMAX Fitness centre in town… I really didn’t know what to expect but did have high hopes as I had been told it is excellent for pain. So Friday after picking up the kids and hubby coming home from work I thought to myself – you’ve got the opportunity… GO.

I went back the next morning and signed up for their 2 month package.

I have been going everyday, except Sunday’s and this past Saturday, I didn’t want to push myself after the 2 classes I went to Thursday and Friday plus doing a couple sessions on my own both days.

I am not shy, now, about the health issues I have. I have also always had pain when exercising… when I had my hysterectomy I knew it probably wouldn’t take away all the pain, but its made a huge difference. However I’ve always had pain if I’ve tried to do abdominal exercises – in my pelvis and lower back. In the 4 1/2 months since my surgery I have thankfully had a lot less pain and been a lot more comfortable, however the pelvic pain when I have tried to do exercises for my belly it hasn’t been very comfortable, for my lower back especially. Which has been the bitter sweet part, yes I’ve had a lot less pain and I’m thankful for that, heck my hubby and kids are too, but I was feeling extremely frustrated knowing I needed to begin doing more exercising but physically not being able to. Damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I would never go back and not have had the hysterectomy though. My quality of life is so much better… and getting much more better!

The first week and a half at vmax I used the Trio and did the programs Tasha recommended. I honestly began to feel my core beginning to strengthen, and without pain! I actually could feel my muscles working and I felt good! One of the reasons I was hesitant in going was I wasn’t yet a believer, it had to be too good to be true, you stand on a vibration plate and lose weight… but no you don’t just stand there.

I googled to see if I could find anything on the health issues I have and vibration training, but nothing, nothing at all current or local. I am not getting my hopes up for anything too spectacular to happen, however I certainly have noticed I am feeling better, my core is stronger, I do have more energy and lucky me, hubby said he has noticed I am toning up!

In just over 2 weeks I have gone from someone wishing I could be into fitness to someone who looks forward to going to the VMAX Fitmess Centre to work out.

As someone who once was a non-believer, I am loving grabbing the exercise mat and feeling the sweat drip off me – the class I went to I learned some awesome core exercises!!! And even after doing the core exercises doing another 10 minute set on the machine doing squats and ab exercises. What’s even better is I can go wearing my work clothes, I can go at any time that’s convenient to me and it doesn’t take much time. The energy I am feeling now is great, I feel so wonderful after and look forward to everyday I go back.

For anyone living with either, or all like me, PCOS, Endometriosis or Hypothyroidism should give it a shot! I certainly am glad I did, I thought I had my life back before, but I didn’t have this energy. I’m looking forward to when I do my measurements again. 😉
