Before and After

Q: What was the deciding factor that helped you become a Personal Training client?

A: I wanted the guidance of a Certified Trained Professional that could help me achieve my goals while not re-injuring my knee or shoulder. During my initial “interview” the Personal Training Manager really demonstrated to me in a professional way what can be accomplished safely.

Q: How long have you been a Fight Club Personal Training Client?

A: Since Jan 26, 2015

Q: What is your overall feeling about Training here at Fight Club?

A: It’s different than your normal glitz and glam gym. Your surrounded by people working towards a goal whether that’s weight loss up active competition, very inspiring to be around on a consistent basis. That attitude is different than your normal “water cooler” gym that center more around what your wearing than getting results.

Working with my trainer Steve has really gotten me further in a short amount of time than where I ever thought I could be. His ability to bring out my best is unparalleled in various previous gym experiences. At the end of the day its someone with a friendly positive attitude in my corner helping to guide and answer all my questions, getting the best results possible.

Q: Describe what part of you experience training here has made you the happiest?

A: Having everything I was told in my initial interview come true through hard work and dedication! When I started out on this journey I was not able to complete numerous exercises with any type of repetition or consistency, despite my best effort. And now not only am I doing the things I couldn’t do just 90 days ago, but I’ve gotten the confidence to start and complete more advanced workout routines maximizing the one on one time with the trainer pushing it to the limit each time we meet. Its also given me the motivation to make certain life changes I never would have previously, biggest thing has been making the commitment to myself and following through on my diet.

Q: Describe some of the most important benefits you’ve received by training with us?

A: Diet, Diet, Diet, its been the biggest adjustment I’ve made. It’s been the most influential and timely help the entire staff has helped guide me with. In my 1st 90 days I lost 32lbs through hard work and dedication while not giving it all back during breakfast, lunch and dinner. While I still would like to loose more and work towards new goals, I know today that I have the tools and confidence to continue on that road knowing whats been accomplished recently. Also in general I’m a happier person having gotten rid of the work days frustrations at the gym combined with a healthier life style at home.

Q: Please explain specifically what you’ve gained from your experience here?

A: Having never boxed previously, I’ve learned that I really like it. Being a competitive person, boxing allows me to get it out of my system while learning a new sport and getting into shape. Not realizing the combination of Stamina, Power and Speed required to do it correctly, its helped open up a new avenue to get fit and keep it interesting. As a person that’s tried numerous things over the years to stay in shape, ultimately failing due to various reason but most notably because of boredom with the same routine day after day. Fight Club keeps it fresh and interactive allowing you to experience different things on a consistent basis. Also I’ve learned that there is new and interesting methods to work out that do not require endless hours in the gym.

Q: What was the deciding factor that helped you become a Personal Training client?
A: I always wanted to have personal training because I really had no clue of how to properly exercise. I didn’t know what muscles to focus on, I didn’t know many exercises, how many of them to do, how much cardio, nothing really! I always wanted to be active and strong, but I didn’t have any guidance.

Q: How long have you been a Fight Club Personal Training Client?
A: For about a month, I had 10 personal training sessions with Wendy.

Q: What is your overall feeling about Training here at Fight Club?
A: I love how wholesome Fight Club is. You have many options, whether you want to jump in one of the kickboxing cardio classes, or do some ellipticals, weight training by yourself or anything you feel like. You have the freedom to chose how you want to work out, and you have a variety of classes and equipment to do so. Exercise, like dieting or anything you do can become monotonous and repetitive. If you don’t mix it up, you’ll get bored and be more likely to quit.

Q: Describe what part of you experience training here has made you the happiest?
A: I can’t lie, I love the way I look right now. I have never been more in shape in my life. Apart from this superficial gain, I also feel stronger and more active. When you are more physically active and strong and eat the right way, your mood changes completely.

It’s an overall change of lifestyle, all for the better. When you take care of your body, you feel healthier, happier, and your self-esteem rises a lot.

The eating monitoring was what helped me the most! I didn’t know how much of an impact a good diet had on the way you work out.

Q: Describe some of the most important benefits you’ve received by training with us?
A:

  • Significantly better eating habits
  • Learned how to exercise for the results I want
  • Great improvement in physical appearance

Q: Please explain specifically what you’ve gained from your experience here?
A: I’ve gained a positive lifestyle. I used to be very sedentary and lazy for everything, and that wasn’t doing anything good for my life.

When you eat healthy, exercise regularly, and are fit, you feel better about yourself. When you feel better about yourself, you become happier. Self-confidence makes you feel more capable of doing more things. Not just physically, but mentally and in your daily life.

Q: Is there anything else at all that you’d like to add?
A: Wendy is awesome!

Q: What was the deciding factor that helped you become a Personal Training client?

A: I’ve always been active, doing sports in high school and college. I continued to workout after my sports days but I mostly did cardio. I wanted to begin lifting weights to gain muscle and lower my body fat, but I wasn’t sure how to get started. I had Terry test my body fat percentage and when he told me about his personal training program it felt like it was something I could definitely do. The idea of having a trainer to hold me accountable to reach my goals was exactly what I needed at the time.

Q: How long have you been a Fight Club Personal Training Client:

A: 6 months

Q: What is your overall feeling about Training here?

A: I love training at fight club, Terry always challenges me to try new things. He constantly incorporates new workouts and equipment to keep things interesting.

Q: Describe some of the most important benefits you’ve received by training with us.

A: Training at fight club has taught me how to train correctly and safely for my body.

Q: Please explain specifically what you’ve gained from your experience here:

A: I’ve gained a lot of knowledge about weight training as well as stretching. I’ve definitely found that stretching is very important. Without stretching, injuries are much more common.

Q: Anything you’d like to add?
A: I’ve gained a lot of confidence training at fight club and I hope to continue building on that.
