Q & A with Tony -
How long have you been a WRAC member?
I started in April of 2017, right after moving back to Wenatchee.
What was your main reason for joining the club?
I needed to find a gym and I knew a couple of people who worked at The WRAC. Plus my dad is a member and its only a few minutes from my house and on my way to work.
What is your favorite part of the facility to utilize?
The free weights/lifting area. Although I enjoy cycling class with Tony and A.J..
How long ago did you begin your fitness journey & what is your main goal?
I played sports in high school and have been interested in fitness all of my life - I even job shadowed a personal trainer at The WRAC my senior year. But I really committed to changing my lifestyle on New Years Day this year. I looked in the mirror and didn't like what I saw. So I committed myself to changing what I ate & consistently going to workout. My main goal was to get to 193 lbs, which was my high school wight.
What has been the hardest part of your journey? Most rewarding?
The hardest part has been changing my eating habits. I was an athlete in high school and was able to eat whatever and my eating habits never changed, so it took me awhile to adjust to not eating fast food and cutting out the junk food. The most rewarding part has probably been needing to buy new work and workout clothes. The old stuff doesn't fit!
Describe how you feel (overall) NOW compared to how you felt when you first started on your fitness journey.
Faster, lighter. Its difficult to describe beyond just saying, better. But I do feel a lot better...I am proud of what I have accomplished thus far, but I am not done yet.
Free weights or Cardio?
Is it a cop out to say both? I enjoy lifting but its hard to beat going on a run and watching the sunset.
Leg day or Arm day?
LEG DAY!! I really enjoy lifting heavy things so squats and dead-lifts appeal to me.
Outside of working out at The WRAC, what do you enjoy doing for fun?
Well I am an Assistant Golf Professional so I enjoy golfing, but my favorite activity has to be basketball.
