#GetFitWithSigridSays — Let’s take this fitness journey together at Fitness Mecca, Bacolod mommies! All photos on this blog post are by Jerancy Antonio.

There just comes a point in your life when your metabolism becomes sluggish and you pile on the weight. It started when I was 39. I am 42 now, mother of two girls, ages 8 and 4. I would go on a diet but couldn’t follow it through and it seems, the very little that I eat just bulks up on my tummy and sides. The energy is low, I don’t have much strength, and although I haven’t had my blood works lately, I know that I don’t have a clean bill of health. There is one thing that I haven’t done though– that’s to get on a regular exercise regimen at the gym.

Problem Areas

So here are my stats:

Height: 4’10
Starting Weight: 129 lbs.

Based on my starting weight that was taken at the gym, I am 29 lbs overweight. It may not be so bad for some, but the problem is, my weight gain is directed only at my upper body. My legs and feet remain the same size and so they bear the brunt of the extra weight.

What’s worse is that my right leg is longer than my left leg. Honestly, only Fitness Coach Mike Rotas has noticed that during my assessment. I know about the difference but I never thought it was the cause of the pain on my knees, my feet, as well as my back and neck. Well, after all, they are all connected. Honestly, I don’t really care if I’m fat, I kinda accepted that. But what I can’t accept is the pain. It’s too much, especially if I need to stand up for quite some time or walk a short distance. It also troubles me that I keep on taking painkillers just to relieve the pain. Thankfully, I don’t have other maintenance medicines yet. So before it happens, I have to do something drastic.

Workout That’s Designed for Me

And with this, Fitness Mecca has partnered with me to support me on this journey to good health–to a quality life. Fitness Mecca is the newest health hub in Bacolod City with the most modern gym equipment. They are located at the Robinsons City Walk, so parking is not a problem.

When I signed up, I was given an assessment. Coach Mike checked my balance, flexibility, and other health conditions. He then designed a program for me for weight loss, something mild that will slowly build up.

I am excited because the program was designed specifically for my needs. Also, I am happy to work with the coaches of Fitness Mecca because they are also happy to help me. While they offer one-on-one coaching services for a different fee, they will still help you even if you don’t. The staff will make sure that you know what you should be doing. They also make sure that you don’t hurt yourself.

Aside from their customize fitness plan, there are also group classes that you can join, too, such as Zumba,Β Cycling, RIP 60, Yoga, Bodymax, Omnia, Functional Circuit Training,
