I recently ordered a 30 kg (66 lb) bag of sand to build a play area for the kids in the garden.
On the day of delivery the postman comes to the door and announces that I have a package to sign for. He says he will need some help as it is very heavy and can't lift and carry it himself. He asks me if my husband is home to give him a hand.
Always one for a challenge - I reply that I can do it! I reach into the van and drag the sandbag, place it on the floor, deadlift it and carry it into my home. I would love to say it was easy - it wasn't. But it was possible and I felt great to do this without assistance. The postman was amazed! :-)
I know several months ago I would have had not even attempted this and would never have considered myself a strong woman. Darryl's training program has helped me build up my strength in practical ways, and given me the self confidence to attempt things I had never done before - not just preparing for the gym but for real-life.
That's what training is about for me now. Thanks Darryl!
