No excuses for this lady! Surgeries on both kneecaps have not stopped Lori from being a regular bootcamp class member who always gives it her all! She credits the Summer’s Fitness instructors with helping her to increase upper body strength, balance, and endurance. Lori loves a challenge, and says that pushing a 45 lb. plate is one of her favorite exercises! An intense workout can be done, despite the need for modifications! Congratulations to Lori, who exemplifies the motto, “Everything in moderation, be consistent, and stay determined!”
Before joining Summer’s Fitness, Lisa felt overweight, tired, and out of shape. She was becoming self-conscious of her body image, but that’s all changed in the 5 months she’s been at our facility! Lisa decided to make her health a priority, and often attends the 6AM classes because they fit best into her busy work schedule. Her diligence has paid off; in less than 5 months, Lisa has lost over 17 pounds and nearly 20 inches! “I feel the boot camp workout coupled with weight training has made the difference in my success,” says Lisa. “I feel energized, happier, more confident… and lighter!” Keep up the good work, Lisa!
Kathleen has been a member of Summer’s Fitness for over 10 years, and you might think she has discovered the fountain of youth! Instead, she has discovered functional fitness training, which has increased her strength, mobility, and energy level. She has no problem maintaining an active lifestyle that includes working full-time as a physical therapist, keeping up with her 5 grandchildren, and gardening. Kathleen’s energetic and engaging spirit is an inspiration to us all. Congratulations on achieving your personal best!
Working as a server at a local restaurant doesn’t always make it easy for college student Cari to make good food choices, but with the support of the Summer’s Fitness staff, she keeps herself on track. Thanks to her nutritional plan, 30 minute classes (her favorite class is kickboxing!), and small group personal training, Cari is seeing results! The structure and guidance have not only helped Cari lose inches and gain strength, but both her energy and confidence levels have skyrocketed! Keep up the good work, Cari! You are amazing!
Bobby, a competitive bowler for over 35 years, says that “the years have taken a toll on my body.” To offset the constant soreness he experiences in his shoulder, knees, ankles, and wrist, he has begun taking classes and working with trainer Devin one on one. He is seeing some positive results, boasting losses of 3 lbs., 2% body fat, and 3 inches overall! “In just the short time I have been with Summer’s Fitness, I feel I have more energy for activities, and I have noticed a better range of motion and flexibility.” Great job, Bobby, and good luck with your quest to compete on the PBA 50 National Tour next year!
My training sessions are never boring and I love the different ways of exercising specific muscles without just ‘lifting weights.’ Thanks to Summer’s Fitness, my clothes definitely fit better – I’ve lost 2 pant sizes! I am able to get through my day without feeling like I need to take a nap! I don’t find myself asking for help to move heavy objects! It’s hard to explain all the ways exercising has improved my daily life…everything from laundry to yard work is so much easier. It’s feeling better and living a healthier life.
Although losing weight has been a great accomplishment, I feel like my biggest accomplishment would be quitting smoking. I quickly realized there is no possible way to smoke and exercise. I was able to quit cold turkey and found that the more conditioned I got, the easier it was to stay away from the cravings. I don’t think it would have been as easy to quit if I had started in a different gym! I also have a ton of energy that I didn’t have before. I have goals that really keep me pushing and excited about life. In fitness, there are an unlimited amount of goals you can set for yourself; lift more, run faster, work harder. I never thought I could be so pumped up about fitness! In just 5 weeks I lost 16 pounds, 9 inches, and 3% body fat – and I’m not done yet!
Initially, I thought that I would feel intimidated in a gym, that I wouldn’t fit in or keep up. But the staff and members at Summer’s Fitness have always made me feel comfortable and welcome. I enjoy gardening and being active with my family and grandkids, and exercise has helped me continue to be able to do that.
At 54, Summer’s Fitness has gotten me to and helped me maintain the best shape of my life! I have also made many friends here who push me to run faster, lift heavier, and push myself during class. My favorite is the Sunday bootcamp with Steph!
The other members are really supportive! I thought I would have to spend hours at the gym to lose weight. I learned that when I work out correctly and applied the nutrition plan, I don’t need to spend hours at the gym. I have gained so much confidence in myself. I am a healthier person inside and out and have become a better mom. I love making healthy meals for my family and started experimenting with new foods!
