Val snowshoeing back home after her 5:15 AM workout!

One of the biggest predictors of success, in any area of your life, and especially in area of fitness, is dedication.  How badly do you want results and how much work are you willing to put forth to get those results?  How are you going to overcome obstacles in your life that will inevitably pop up?

Mindy and Val are two moms who DON’T let obstacles get in their way of getting in their workouts.  I had the privilege of meeting both of these moms recently and they are super cool!  Mindy has 6 kids, but doesn’t let that be an excuse for not working out.  You can find these two friends every morning at 5:15 AM in Mindy’s basement working out to the Fit Moms For Life DVD series.

On Wed Dec 9th, a small “obstacle” occurred.  They received about 15 inches of snow overnight.  Instead of Val calling Mindy and saying she couldn’t make it there, she took things into her own hands, or should I say feet, and snowshoed over to Mindy’s house at 5:15 AM for the workout!

Now that is dedication that we should all strive for.

Mindy's beautiful 6 kids!
