Congrats 8 weeks to wellness graduate Maureen for completing the program, and making great strides to improve her health, wellness and fitness goals. In her video she shares her experiences with each aspect of the 8WW program.
“It has had a great impact on my life, and I’m going to continue. This is a journey.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint in terms of our lifestyle and wellness. It is a life long
process, so I couldn’t be happier and more appreciative to the folks here.”
My initial goal in beginning 8 Weeks to Wellness was to simply feel better. The stress of caring for an elderly parent and the wear and tear of 62 years contributed to digestive problems and chronic aches and pains. Medical examinations found no serious problems, so I was left to treat symptoms with the normal regiments of antacids and ibuprofen. I considered myself a healthy person with an active lifestyle, but I didn’t feel well. 8 Weeks to Wellness provided an integrated program that included all of the elements that I have never been able to be consistent with. I needed the structure of the program to give form to my good intentions so that they could become reality in a consistent and comprehensive way.
The training part of the program provided new insights into working out and gave me the extra push to challenge my body. The adjustments and myofascial release therapy not only provided treatment, but also helped me understand the causes of my body aches. The result was physical and mental relief. The structure of a healthier diet and supplementation was also extremely helpful. The practice of using a journal to record what I was eating helped keep me on track and resulted in a change of lifestyle. My body now craves healthier foods and I have become acutely aware of how much better I feel when I keep my body well-nourished throughout the day. No more binge eating from feeling famished at the end of a long work day.
The results for me have gone far beyond my goal of feeling better. I have experienced a change in body composition, I have a stronger core and balance, I have a new love of exercise, and I have actually found great pleasure in healthy foods. An additional feature of the program was the use of a before and after blood test. Feeling better is a very subjective measurement of success, but the facts afforded by the blood work provided me with an objective look at the significant changes that had occurred internally. I truly am a healthier person thanks to this program.
I am grateful to the entire staff of Kambeitz Chiropractic for their encouraging and kind manner, their commitment to excellence, and their professional expertise.
As we’ve said before, people join our 8WW program, or come to our personal trainers with different goals. The goals fuel the “why” – which is the underlying motivation that working out will help you accomplish.
Recently, one of our long time patients, Jill made the trip to Peru. In anticipation of her travels she made the time to visit our gym and personal trainers. Based on her hiking goals, a workout regiment was designed, and we were delighted to hear her results.
Great job Jill, and thanks for sporting the KCHWC t-shirt in Peru!
We were planning a trip to Peru, including a hike up to the top of Wayna Picchu, the peak that soars above Machu Picchu. It’s almost 1,000 feet above Machu Picchu, almost all rock steps and switchbacks, with few rails to assist you. Although I had been getting chiropractic care at Kambeitz Chiropractic for quite some time, I hadn’t focused on getting in shape. When I mentioned the upcoming hike, they recommended working with the trainers to make it a possibility!
I couldn’t have asked for a better team to get me to my goal! I actually enjoyed the hike, the gorgeous views and my feeling of accomplishment. I expected to be extremely sore the next day, but wasn’t! We hiked several more ruins during our trip (Ollantaytambo was another ruin with lots of steps to climb around) and I had no problems.
Thanks again to everyone, I know I couldn’t have done it without you.
For the past four years, Kambeitz Chiropractic and Dr. Kambeitz has been a very strong asset to my lacrosse career at the University of Denver. Whether he was treating me for an injury or offering an array of stretching techniques, Dr. Kambeitz has a profound understanding of my individual needs. Through his meticulous care and proficiency I am pain free today and was able to keep healthy throughout my college career. He was able to keep me healthy as he has an acute understanding of athletes. Without Dr. Kambeitz’s golden hands and the rest of Kambeitz Chiropractic, I may not have triumphed to my ultimate goal, playing professional lacrosse.
