I am a mother of 3 and work full-time.  I have not had a lot of time to devote to myself over the last 16 years.Kristy before and after

I had very low self-esteem before coming to Fit4Life and have sporadically worked out over the years.  In the past, I have gone to a traditional gym and have felt lost because I didn’t know how I should be working out.

My goals were/are twofold:  I have a long-term goal of losing 85 pounds and a fitness goal of just being in better shape to play soccer with my daughter and maybe run a 5K.

In a little over 3 months I have lost 32 pounds.  I have more energy to play with my daughter and am currently training for a 5K at the end of June.

I am starting to feel better about myself.  I didn’t put the weight on overnight and will not lose it overnight but as I see my body take on a different shape and see the numbers on the scale go down, that makes me realize that I am worth it!

I try to be very “me” focused during my bootcamp workouts.  So, after the 30 minutes, I feel proud, exhausted and motivated!

I have realized that I have changed the way that I look at eating.  There are days when I still struggle and want that piece of cake or chocolate (all is good in moderation) but I know the decision is mine as to whether I actually want to eat it or not.  I have the POWER!

What would you say to someone thinking about trying Fit 4 Life

Fit 4 Life is the best decision I have ever made and the best decision you could make for yourself!  If you are looking to just get in shape, the 30 minute bootcamp will definitely do that for you.  The program is well structured so that you work as hard as you possibly can for 30 minutes maximizing your after burn.  If you are looking for nutrition help, you have come to the right place!  There are many options of nutrition plans to follow.  The best part of all is the opportunity to work with a fabulous trainer who helps you achieve both short and long-term goals, is extremely motivating and believes that anyone can do anything with just the right mind-set!  If you want to change your life, you have come to the right place!

Kristy has now lost over 95 Pounds (even since the picture)! Here are the new pictures and what she had to say about the rest of it:

I work full-time in customer service, I am a wife, and am a mom of 3 kids ages 17, 15 and 10. Just

being a wife/mom takes up most of my time. I think the biggest barrier for me is being tired and the end of the

day and not wanting to exercise. I have been working out at Fit 4 Life for about 10 months now but before working out I had very little energy. I

found it very hard to move through my day without being completely exhausted and I had very low self-esteem.

Looking in a mirror was torture (and still is sometimes)!

Eventually I decided that it was time to put myself first,

something that very few moms can or are willing to do. With my kids’ being a little older, I felt I could

challenge myself with this task. I had to get the weight off. I was tired of being unmotivated and I was tired

of also having to shop in the plus size department. I really let myself go and I decided that I deserved to get

myself back on track for myself and for my family! In the past, I have struggled with a sciatic

nerve issue. There were times where I could not even walk I was in so much pain, so I was very concerned

about that flaring up. I also suffer from allergies/asthma and was worried about having an asthma attack. I struggled at first, but now I feel great when I work out.
I don’t even know where to begin to describe how different I feel now.

The change has been dramatic! Besides looking very different, I feel wonderful. I have so much more energy

and was able to play against my daughter in a soccer game (something I would never have done 10 months

ago). I feel motivated to keep going and to spread my love of working out to anyone who will listen. My

mindset is so different now in that I know how to challenge myself to keep pushing forward. I feel more

confident and I think that shows through.

I loved working out with awesome trainers and clients! I enjoyed the nutrition program

and sharing success stories with other clients. It is motivating to hear how other people are changing their lives!

It will change your life forever!! Fit 4 Life is the best thing that I have ever done! The bootcamp classes are an awesome workout. The classes are

only 30 minutes out of your day and the workout changes daily. You will never complete the same workout

twice! The class is structured so you get a full body workout, but also focuses each time on a different muscle

group. I think that is what I like best. Also, it is great to work out with people who are there for similar

reasons as you are, whether those reason are to get in shape or if you are there to lose weight, or both! John and

Grace are the best trainers around! I have learned so much from them as they each bring their own style to the

workout. They both challenge and motivate you to complete each class like it is your last. I tell everyone about

Fit 4 Life and what a great workout it is and challenge any of you to try it as well!

I am the mother of two young boys, a wife and I have a very full time career. Time is always something that has been very limited when it comes to me working out and taking care of myself. Oh, have I learned some great new things these past 6 weeks.

Starting out, I felt like a failure, like this 6 week challenge would not work for me because I have tried so many different things in the past and just have not been successful. Starting out I did not think I was capable of losing any weight, like it was never going to happen for me. I was low on self confidence, never thought I would be able to complete this routine a couple days per week, I was sore and did not know how I was going to make it.

My goals when starting at Fit 4 Life were to begin making nutritional and fitness changes and start transforming my so called life. I want to be a healthier and happier person.

Since joining Fit 4 Life I feel such accomplishment. Not only have I lost inches but this past week I finally hit my 20th pound lost and I feel so excited to continue on this journey and see what this new life has to offer me.

I never expected to feel so energetic and full of life. I thoroughly look forward to my 30 minute workouts and the motivation is so there to continue to make these changes. Each day my clothes are getting looser and I am feeling healthier. The nutritional and fitness support by John himself has been such a great resource and tool to have there every step of the way. When I started the challenge I was so completely sore I could barely walk up and down my stairs and quickly that went away when I continued my workouts and activity. As John always says “The best way to relieve the soreness is to continue your workouts” great advice and it works. Once we have finished a workout I feel such a sense of accomplishment and motivation and I am just excited knowing that I am making changes and I look forward to my workouts now. It is not a dreaded event anymore.

If you are thinking about trying Fit 4 Life… I say “What are you waiting for” come give it a try. The motivation and support is amazing. It is a life changing experience. Come be part of the Fit 4 Life family and learn to make the healthy lifestyle changes that you want to make. You will have no regret in starting this program.

loriI asked John to help me get “swimsuit ready” for a vacation I had booked.  I am a regular at the gym, but I generally just focus on cardio and never really knew what other strength training exercises I could do to shape and tone my body.

I never set a goal, and I think this was one of reasons I was so successful. Rather than focusing on the large amojason_hilgerunt I wanted to lose I just took it one day at a time and changed my daily habits.

I was recommended for weight loss surgery by my physician, but after learning more about it I decided that I could instead lose the weight myself through lifestyle changes.
