LiveFit Challenge Week 8: Leslie’s Update

Leslie Iles works in Radiology Services at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.

Yup, it’s official I’m addicted…to Spin. Any form, spinning during a class or taking the bike in a hallway and doing it on my own. When I first started taking a spin class my butt hurt, my knees didn’t like when climbing a hill standing or anything that took me off the bike seat.  Today my butt doesn’t hurt unless I do a very long seated climb and my knees don’t hurt when I am off the seat.  I sweat like a pig, the workout is amazing and one hour just flies by. I have done a spin workout every day this week and I am not sick of it.  We even had an impromptu spin class with three 6-pack members this week in the hallway at the Aurora Sports Med building.  We had lots of laughs but worked our butts off.

I have a spinning buddy who I also believe is addicted, Linda one of the 6-pack members. We have become exercise buddies, planning workouts every day.  We motivate each other, we laugh and when we are exhausted we push each other to keep going.  Thank you Linda!!

Yesterday was my fitness assessment and I am proud to say I have lost a total of 7.25 inches  and 7.4 lbs.  It has been a grueling two months but the hard work is beginning to pay off.  I can’t wait to see where I am in June. Next week begins our triathlon class…
