What’s your Limit: Unlimited MMA Member Profile
We often struggle to find inspiration in your daily lives. The truth is, you don’t really need to look very far to find it. We all need a little bit of inspiration and motivation to help us in our fitness journey.
Each month we will be profiling a member of the Unlimited MMA family–to give us a chance to get to know them and learn a little bit about their fitness journey.
Pamela Leong works at Alden Lane Nursery, was born in Schenectady, New York.
She now lives in Fremont, CA and has been part of the Unlimited Family since the beginning. We commend Pam for her strength and dedication,
and hope that her fitness journey becomes and inspiration to you!
Have you always been active all your life?
I have always done some type of workout or routine but I never was very consistaent with anyone of them.
I would stay consistent until I reached my goal and then I would stop because usually by that time I was bored with it all.
I used to work out to the Jane Fonda Video when I was in my 30′s! (Hey, don’t laugh, it got me in the best shape ever at that time)
I never really did get into playing any sports, not that I don’t like them, there where just too many kids in my family growing up so there wasn’t really enough money fot it.
What prompted you to join the gym?
I was starting to gain weight pushing 180lbs. I remember telling my daughter how I didn’t feel good and I have to do something about it.
This one particular year for Christmas she gave me the best gift ever!! It was a membership to Milipitas Health and Fitness.
That was 11years ago! I started my journey at the gym as soon as Christmas was over. I started with a few personal training sessions. Soon after, I started coming to the gym 3 to 4 times a week.
My motto was “Nobody or Nothing is going to get in my way of success and getting on track to a healthy lifestyle”
What Sparked your interest to join Unlimited MMA?
One day I discoved Kickboxing and decided to take a class–we were still in the old room with no equipment.
I left class that day feeling sore but great!! That’s the day I knew I had finally found something that I love!
I have never looked back. I come to the gym to this day (After 11 years) still 4 to 6 times a week.
There are no excuses not to be there.
It’s a commitment that I made to myself 11 years ago, this was going to be my new lifestyle.
What do you like most about Unlimited MMA?
I Love Unlimited! I love my coaches (Rudy, Jose, Robert, Brian, Tristan, Miranda) and my teammates.
They are all the absolute best!! They continually encourge me and inspire me to try and do my absolute best.
Unlimited is like a second family to me. I have made so many long lasting friendships that I will cherish for a lifetime.
I also love that there are many options to chose from. If Cardio Kickboxing isn’t your thing then you can try a Muay Thai class (which I really love too), Crossfit
Jujitsu or work up to Level 2 and spar with the Fight Team—they have all levels. Over the years, I have tried them all and I love them. The only thing I never really wanted to do is get in the ring for an actual fight.
I don’t like getting puched in the face LOL!!!
What are some of the struggles you’ve come across in your fitness journey?
Some of the struggles for me is sometimes maintaining my weight and remembering that it will come back if I don’t stay on track. I have been pretty lucky as far as physical damage to my body.
I do have a tear in my rotator cuff and a disc that is a bit off, so that slows me done a bit–but it will never stop me!!
What advice or words of wisdom can you give current/future Unlimited members?
Words of advice: Don’t make excuses..Just do it!! You gotta stay consistent! That will be the easy part once you find out what it is you love to do.
I say try it all and see what you love, then Get Some!!!
