December Superhero of the Month

TamiSuperhero of the Month

Superhero of the Month –
Cindy Minear

Congratulations Cindy! You are definitely a superhero!

Team Mo and I chose our SUPER HERO OF THE MONTH based on several important factors that we believe reflect the values on which the Mo-Mentum Fitness world-class culture has been built upon. 

Mo-Mentum’s Core Values include:

  • Mindset for Growth, constant never ending learning….if you’re not growing you’re shrinking
  • Over deliveron all we do
  • Tribewe all need an incredible tribe!We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.
  • TransparencyWe believe in honesty and being transparent
  • Vitality- we believe in living vibrantly and all out

Since Cindy Minear’s first day at Mo-Mentum she has been “ALL IN.”  Cindy has been ALL IN to her aspirations, to her family and friends and to Mo-Tribe.  Cindy LIVES EXTRAORDINARILY!  

Living extraordinarily doesn’t mean you live every moment happy and problem free.  Instead, living extraordinarily means looking at problems as obstacles that train us to be better.  It means leaning in when days get rough instead of looking for excuses to quit.  It means following your heart and living according to your values.  Living extraordinarily means living vibrantly because you’ve taken great care of your body, mind and spirit.  It also means that none of us do this “living thing” perfectly and when we do stumble we get up, dust ourselves off, learn from the experience and move on. 

 Whenever I talk to Cindy she has something interesting going on in her life.  She’s starting a new business, one of her 6 children has an event she’s helping with or she’s planning for a vacation or a interesting family event. 

 Cindy is always busy, but she’s never too busy to take care of her body, mind and spirit.  Cindy understands that if she doesn’t take time to put on her oxygen mask, her family will pay the price.

Cindy lives by her values.  She hasn’t told me her values; she doesn’t have to tell me because they stand out in her consistent actions.  I know Cindy values her family; they come first.  She values her health and understands that living extraordinarily means taking care of her body.  She values her friends and she values a growth mindset.  Cindy doesn’t ever seem to be stagnant or bored to me!  She’s too interested in life for boredom.  AND one of my favorite things (and I have several favorite things) about Cindy are her bright, cheerful leggings, a definite sign of her individuality and affinity for fun!

We chose Cindy as the December super hero of the month because she LIVES EXTRAORDINARILY!  This is our “tag line” because life is too short to live unfulfilled, angry and in fear.  We help our Mo-Tribe live life ALL OUT and with no regrets!

 If you need inspiration, watch Cindy Minear!  She is a Wonder Woman, Amazon Warrior!  We love you Cindy!   

Love Amanda 

Q & A

Meet Desiree, Mo-Mentum Fitness’s Superhero of  November! She definitely is a superhero!

Describe what your life (and your health) was like before fitness

“I was very active when I was younger.  But after have six kids, I spent all my energy on them and didn’t take proper care of myself.  As a result I slowly gained weight over the years until one day I found my self very overweight and out of shape.”

Was there ever a low point or an experience that made your priorities change

“I think the low point was when I put on my size 18 jeans and could barely get them fastened.   There was no way I was going to purchase size 20 jeans!  Instead I started on a journey to lose weight and get fit.”

How did fitness come into your life (or back into your life)?

“My friend who knew I wanted to loose weight and get fit invited me to try out a kickboxing class she attended three days a week.  I tried it out, and decided to join the class.  That was about eight years ago. A little over a year ago, the instructor of that class retired and I had to find a new place to workout.  Some of the ladies who attend the kickboxing class invited me to try out Mo-Mentum Fitness. I am so glad they did.  I found a new fitness home that I love!”

What kind of results have you seen since starting a regular fitness program?

“Since joining Mo-Mentum Fitness I have lost almost 20 pounds and gotten stronger.  I’m now in the best shape I have ever been in.  The trainers at Mo-Mentum constantly challenge me to step out of my comfort zone and try things I never thought I would be able to do.”

 

Please talk more about the actual changes in your life?

“I’ve made fitness a priority in my life.  I strive to work out M-F every week, no excuses.  I pay better attention to what I eat, choosing foods that provide me with better nutrition.”

Let’s focus in on the blood work. What kind of changes have you seen there? What do these changes mean for you lifestyle, longevity, finances, etc.?

“Being fit means I don’t have to take medication for health issues like a lot of women my age.”

  Why do you make fitness a priority in your life?

“I make fitness a priority in my life so that I can live a healthy lifestyle.  As I get older, I want to be able to travel the world, hike in the outdoors, and enjoy my family for as long as possible. “

These days, what makes you truly happy and feel at peace?

“I make fitness a priority in my life so that I can live a healthy lifestyle.  As I get older, I want to be able to travel the world, hike in the outdoors, and enjoy my family for as long as possible. “

How do you feel compared to 1 year ago?

“Great!  Since joining Mo-Mentum last year I feel stronger, leaner, and better able to face the challenges of my day-to-day life.”

 

SPECIFICS? JOB? AGE? CHILDREN?

I’m 55 and have been married to Dan for 25 years.  Together we have six children: Talia (23), Kayli (21), Aidan (18), Jared (16), Riley (16), and Falyn (12).  I spent 13 years as a software engineer working for Boeing on the International Space Station project before “retiring” when I was pregnant with the twins.  Since then I’ve kept myself busy raising kids and starting businesses.  I started Scrappin’ Twins when my twins were small, which is a business dedicated to providing products for twin and triplet families.  My newest business is aududu book creator, a website that provides tools to help authors create low content books like journals, logs, planners, and notebooks.
