My name is Antonela and I have a few words on Getfit program and how it influenced my life. Together with my colleague Cristina, I signed up after reading a post on Portalen, where there was only a short description on what Getfit was supposed to be about. But it had everything I needed mentioned: sport, health, team & fun. I signed up two hours after seeing the post and there were already 10 on the list. By the end of the day, all the max. 15 participants have signed up.
Before actually starting the training, we had an individual assessment based on diet, weight and expectations. People are different in so many ways, they have different habits and mostly different expectations. I started the program with my mind set on losing weight. But after the first meeting I had with Rikke she convinced me that all I need was more confidence, exercise and equilibrium in my diet.
“I should probably say I was not a morning person. But waking up early for training? Always. We have two sessions / week, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:30-8:30. There couldn’t be a better way to start the day. I gather so much energy during the workout that I am so efficient and happy throughout the day. Our entire office knows about me and Cristina following this program and they always ask on how it goes and what new health facts we’ve learnt. They find it very fun.
We have no adjustable tables in Romania. It was strange for me in the beginning to stand during working hours, but after Rikke told me how beneficial this is for the body, I started doing it. Many times a day. The colleague next to me started doing the same. This can only make me happy. I feel that I inspire not only my colleagues, but my friends as well. I look better, I eat better and most of all, I feel better. I am stronger, more energetic and definitely happier. ”
…..”Last and not least, I don’t have enough good words for Rikke. She is such an inspiration! Not only that she is brilliant at what she does, but she makes training fun and she makes us appreciate ourselves more. She is not only a fitness trainer, but a life trainer and I am so happy to have met her.
Rikke and Getfit is definitely one of the best social parts I love about COWI. I have friends working everywhere in Danish industry and I can confidently say that there is no program like Rikke through COWI has. This is definitely an asset to be valued.”
