Freeletics Experience – Bob’s Story

quote bob1

There is no excuse to avoid sports. If you want to be fit, nothing is stopping you. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. There is nothing in your way. Of course, it will not be easy. But with discipline, hard work, and determination you will succeed. Some people think they have good reasons to give up: “I’m too out of shape.” “I don’t have time.” “I’m not strong enough.” But these are just bad excuses. Don’t let your damn excuses get in the way of your dreams.

Bob is a 45 year old IT manager from Amsterdam. When he saw all the strong, young and determined Free Athletes in our community, he thought he was too old. But he didn’t let this excuse stand in his way. He tried Freeletics and he succeeded. Read his story.

My name is Bob. I’m 45 years old and I guess you could say I’m pretty average. I’ve trained at several different gyms in the past, but never succeeded at getting the body I wanted. So I finally decided to take control of my life and finally do something about it. I had seen Freeletics and was impressed by all those young athletes. But it looked too hard for a 45 year-old man.

Maybe it really was too late for me but I thought, “What the hell, I’ll give it a go anyways.” I bought the Training Coach and a pull up bar, cancelled my gym membership and did my first Freeletics workout ever: Aphrodite. This was a shock… I finished in 37 minutes. But it took me two days to recover.

I’ve trained several days a week for more than ten years. I even ran a couple of half marathons. But I had never felt like this. I was exhausted, but completely satisfied. I knew at that moment that Freeletics was going to help me become the person I always wanted to be. I was on my way to complete fitness, with a body to match. I’ve been a Free Athlete for about six months now and my body has thoroughly transformed (My PB for Aphrodite is 19:20).

But the biggest change has been my confidence. Now I know you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. I’m stronger today and better looking than I was at 25! This just goes to show you, you are never too old to change your life for the better. Freeletics really is for everyone. Anyone can be a Free Athlete. I know because I am one.

No excuses. Nothing stands in the way of a Free Athlete. At 45, Bob is reaching and surpassing his fitness goals. Age didn’t stop him. Fear didn’t stop him. What are your excuses? Don’t let them get to you. Tell us your story.
