Jennifer F. finished her workout last night and I watched her get back up on the pull up bar. When I asked her what she was doing, she told me she was going to practice her pull ups because she was committed to getting one unassisted pull up before July. Cool. Sounded like a good goal to me. After her first pull up, I made a comment that I thought that would be no problem – in fact, she would have her first within a few weeks. WRONG I was… she got her first right there on the spot! And then her 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th. I’m not sure how many she did, but she was so excited she didn’t seem to want to stop! Congratulations, J!
