Superhero of the Month – Sheryl Hazen

“Sheryl is a force to be reckoned with at the gym! Her positive attitude and determination during tough workouts are a testament to her will power.  No challenge is too big or too hard for Sheryl, and that’s the mind set that has led her to accomplish a 225lb deadlift, 185lb back squat and at least 4 unassisted and unbroken pull-ups.  I am excited to see what this year holds for her in new PR’s, and new tests of mental and physical toughness”.

Q & A

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

 

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

“There was never a time when fitness was not in my life, but in my 20’s and 30’s i worked a lot, drank more, ate differently.  I definitely was not as healthy as I am now!”

 

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

“I would say about 2 years ago when I joined Mo-Mentum I started really getting kind of frustrated that I was working out a lot and not feeling or seeing much change in my body.  That is when I started doing personal training, or maybe I just needed a big change.” 

 

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

“Since I have been doing semi-personal training, I have definitely become much stronger and have accomplished things that I never would have tried and maybe even lost a few inches.  In the past two years, I did a half iron-man, 2 Beast Spartan races in high altitude, and 3 other spartan races.  I have definitely become way more competitive and determined now then I have ever been.”

Why do you make fitness a priority in your life?

“Staying fit is a major priority in my life, I try to workout everyday or at least do something active if I’m not at the gym.  I do not feel at my best or great about myself unless i make this a priority.  My husband is a 12 time iron-man on his way to the world championship and my son is a very competitive water polo player. So as a family this is very important to us. 

 

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

“My happy place is being with my family , we spend every summer on the North Shore of Kauai, swimming, hiking and surfing.  And in the winter we spend weekends skiing in Mammoth.  There is nothing I love more than this! Dylan, my son, has grown to also love being active and competitive.”

How do you feel compared to 1 year ago? 

“Compared to one year ago I am definitely stronger and look more fit. I look forward to the year ahead, my fitness goals keep getting harder and I am determined to accomplish them!”

SPECIFICS? JOB? AGE? CHILDREN?

I am 44 years old, I have a 10 year old son and my husband ( who is also like having another kid). I am not sure there is a good “job title” for taking care of my family!
