“I have been a happy member of Lady Fitness for at least 5 wonderful years! I have enjoyed Yoga, Step and kickboxing. I fell in love with Zumba and began going to one 1 hour class every day. The pounds melted away and then I hit a plateau. I continued my workouts, and I watched and changed my eating habits and BOOM! Between eating right and burning calories EVERY DAY, I have lost and kept off 60 pounds. Of course around the holidays, I gain a few back, but it doesn't take long to get back on track with my super motivating instructors! The day care is so clean and nice. When I have to bring children, they also have a great time! Thank you Lady Fitness and all of you wonderful instructors over the years! You are the happiest part of my days!” - Michelle
“At the surface, Lady Fitness is a gym that provides both a variety of cardio and weight machines as well as a plethora of fitness classes. However, Lady Fitness is so much more than that! Lady Fitness is a support system. Everyone -- from the employees, to the instructors, to the other members -- want to see you succeed. It really is a community of women that has come together to better themselves and one another!” - Jenny
“After the birth of my third child, I tipped the scales at 255 pounds. I couldn’t walk up the stairs without getting out of breath. I was embarrassed about how I looked and unhappy with my life, but more importantly – I was scared for my future. I knew that the destructive path I was on would eventually lead me to serious health problems. I started working out at home and dropped a few pounds, but there were too many distractions and it was difficult to be motivated.
I knew I needed to try something different, so I walked into the closest Lady Fitness and changed my life. At Lady Fitness, I found a variety of group fitness options, a supportive, energetic environment, and several programs tailored to helping me achieve my weight loss goals. The trainers and instructors were so inspiring that I decided to get certified and am now teaching my own classes. I have lost 75 pounds and dropped 12 pant sizes! At first I was worried the gym membership wouldn’t fit into our tight budget, until I realized that it costs less per month than one trip to McDonalds with my family. It’s the best investment I’ve ever made.
I could never have imagined a life where I was teaching fitness classes, running half marathons, and feeling good about myself. Health is an incredible gift. And I am so grateful.” - Diane
Hi! My name is Nicole and I started coming to Lady Fitness in 2003, while I was in the 9th grade. I was 5’0” tall and weighed 165lbs. This is when my mom and I decided to gain control of our lives and get healthy.
I knew that it wasn’t going to be a quick-fix and that I needed a complete lifestyle change. We decided that to make this lifestyle change work, and last, our home environment needed to change. As a family, we started to eat more fruits and vegetables, and completely got rid of soda in the house, we try to eat less treats, and we don’t have candy sitting around tempting us—out of sight out of mind. This isn’t to say that I have become strict about what I eat; I am now just more aware of what I am eating. I am a firm believer in the rule: everything in moderation. If you completely restrict you’re favorite foods out of your diet you’ll go crazy and eventually cave in. Just little simple changes in my diet have yielded huge results.
Along with changing my diet I also needed to become more active (which was easy because my level of activity was virtually non-existent) so my mom and I started to come to Lady Fitness. While starting out at the gym, we needed someone to push us so we attended the classes that are offered. I am now able to push myself, and though I still love the classes, I am a self-proclaimed running addict and I ran in my first FULL marathon in May.
I just wanted to share a little bit of my story to let people know that losing weight is possible. There is no secret, no pill, and no special diet—it’s just the simple acts of exercising and eating right. It’s a hard long road but your results will pay off and last you a lifetime—so don’t give up!
“It was about a year ago that I hit rock bottom. I was 215 pounds, sad and unhealthy. I needed to exercise. I mustered up the courage and I walked into Lady Fitness about 9 months ago. Everyone there was so helpful and knowledgeable. I had a few free sessions with a great trainer who was able to give me tips and help me organize an exercise plan to fit my needs.
I’ve lost 75 pounds in 9 months since starting Lady Fitness. I have dropped 12 dress sizes and countless inches by exercising and eating right. No magic pills. No shots or surgeries. Just plain old determination and a little help from my friends at Lady Fitness!” - Darcie
