What makes a fit life even better? A BFF! And by that we mean a Best Fit Friend! As part of BFF Week, we’re sharing some of our readers’ best fit friend stories! Today’s is from Jodi, whose partner in (fit) crime is Cassy, a personal trainer! See all the BFF stories here.
I met my BFF 6 years ago … at the gym! I had been a gym member about a month when Cassy started as a trainer. I can make friends with anyone, so of course we started talking. I had another trainer at the time, but we would chat, started hanging out and quickly became best friends.
After about a year, I started training with her every week — yes, my best friend is also my personal trainer!
She has pushed me to do things I never thought I could or would do — including an indoor triathlon and a 10K (see photos above!) … and she was right by my side for both. When I broke my foot and had surgery last year, she was, of course, there for me. She helped me maintain my active lifestyle by safely modifying exercises.
Yes, we do have fun during our weekly training sessions, and may get sidetracked at times, but she is ALWAYS there for me to push me to be my best self. I love her.
She is my sister. My fit friend. My best friend. —Jodi Danziger
