Workout And Words For January 12th – Giving Thanks To Kyle

Nine months ago I emailed Double Edge Fitness, my body was hurting and I was frustrated where I was at and I wanted to see what Double Edge was all about. I didn’t think that they would get back to me, but within an hour I got a response from someone named Kyle. He said that I should come in and meet with him. I thought, “Great what have I gotten myself into this time.” I met with Kyle and told him my story, half sobbing in his office, and I told him some of my goals. Kyle wasn’t deterred by that weepy sad girl that was sitting before him. He said that he would train me, so we set up some appointments and away we went. I was pretty skeptical of him at first but that disappeared after my first session with him. Kyle has an immense amount of knowledge about the human body, kinesiology, nutrition and how to obtain various fitness goals.

Kyle pushes me harder than I would ever push myself. He definitely knows that fine line between what I can handle and what would be too much that I could possibly hurt myself. I trust Kyle and his training even though I fight him on jumps and squats. He really is knowledgeable at what he does.

Thank you Kyle, you have made such an impact on my life. I appreciate all that you do for me. I’m so grateful that you responded to my email nine months ago. I recognize all the hard and extra work you put into my training and I’m very thankful for it. You have made me enjoy working out again, and I actually look forward to coming to the gym to find out what kind of craziness you have planned out for the day. Thank you so much Kyle Hemsley, you are an amazing person.
