"How did you get started with RockBox?
Lane: My “baby sister,” Debbie Vitale (pictured right), and I decided to give it a try as RockBox in Blakeney was opening and the location was between our two houses. It was a great way for us to be able to schedule time together and both get in better shape. We would manage to connect before or after to hang out for a little while, so it was great on many levels.
When you started, what were you hoping to gain from becoming a member?
Lane: When I joined RockBox, I was hoping to lose some weight, get in better shape, and work out with Debbie – but it definitely turned into more than that. I have always loved playing sports, and always hated working out – find working out incredibly boring. I looked forward to RockBox like it is a sport, even though it is clearly a workout!
How much weight have you lost with RockBox?
Debbie: Almost embarrassed to admit… I have lost 40 pounds! 😳 Also Changed to plant-based diet… the combo of RB & diet allowed me to go off medications for blood pressure & cholesterol. My energy level is awesome! I feel very strong & capable! I really enjoy being outdoors, and feel great now when climbing, cycling, playing tennis etc!
How has RockBox changed your life (confidence level, energy level, personal relationships, etc)?
Debbie: I have not felt this good since battling breast cancer and a heart attack and other health issues & surgeries…and I was actually working out pretty intensely at another (boutique) gym during those times. The community & instruction plus encouragement at RockBox was what I needed to finally get myself back into “Fight” Mode!!!
I am happy to say I have lost 8 pounds since Lane and I did our photos together in March 👏👏👏
