On Your Own Stories: Maria Brown
OYO Fitness is more than just your fitness solution, it’s about creating a culture of On Your Own health, fitness, and empowerment. We reached out to OYO Gym users for On Your Own Stories to learn what keeps them motivated and what inspired them to start their fitness journey with us.
Maria Brown shared her OYO story in hopes of inspiring others to discover the OYO Personal Gym and reach their goals.
Why did you purchase the OYO Gym?
“I saw it in an Instagram post of Flexy Body Babes. I was intrigued by the portability of it, that the SpiraFlex technology used in the OYO was also used on the International Space Station, and also because it’s a Kansas City company!”
How has the OYO Gym helped you improve your strength, shaped specific areas, and/or lose weight?
“I was using it casually to supplement my gym workouts. I mostly used it at work, walking while I use it to get me up from my desk. I have had several staff and vendors ask about it, as it’s a fixture in my office. I wanted to learn to use to its fullest capacity, so I joined the current OYO 10-week challenge … and now I use it mostly at home, but also bring it to work to do a few more exercises with it some days.”
What about your busy schedule? Tell us about how you work fitness into your lifestyle with the OYO Personal Gym?
“See above … most weeks I’m in my office at work more than at home, and I need something to make me get away from my desk on a regular basis. I’d gotten a Fitbit, but even it couldn’t make me move some days. I had a few resistance bands at work, but still they didn’t inspire me because I had to stay in one place to use those. So I needed something portable, lightweight, but yet allowed me to move around and still challenged my muscles… OYO Gym is a perfect fit for my needs!”
Working at a desk all day can take a horrible toll on your posture and muscle tone, and Maria has found the perfect solution to not only preventing the many negatives effects of sitting, but to getting fit while on the clock!
