November Rockstar of the Month!

Each month we choose someone who wants hard inside and outside of the gym as our member of the month. This month its Vicky! She's worked extremely hard for this and I couldn't be happier for her! Here is Vicky's story and be sure to check out her pictures below: I started here at RF back in December of 2014. I had previously been on Weight Watchers and lost about 50 pounds but the weight started to creep back. I knew I wanted to do something to get in shape for good, and then my sister told me about coach Steph. She convinced me to sign up for the boot camp, and that grew into coming regularly. I started feeling healthier and well, so I knew that I’d found a place I wanted to be. I eventually started going to the elite fit classes and then went into the strength training class as well. RF is just such a great place all around, coach Steph, with the help of coach David, and coach Kerri put in so much work to make it welcoming, without holding back on delivering the training and discipline you need. Coach Steph works within my abilities, and is always pushing me to do better. She knows when I need to increase the weight I am working with, even though I sometimes I don’t feel like I want to or can! But she knows what everyone can or can’t do, and it’s just so great to know your coach has your back and genuinely cares about you. It’s not just the coaches either, every member comes together and it’s like having a real team. Thanks to RF, I've completed a couple 5K’s, including the Beast Boot Camp and the Warrior Dash mud run. I also competed in the team Festivus Games. It might be hard work, but when you feel yourself getting stronger and healthier then land a podium finish at the Festivus Games it’s all so worth it. RF has made such an impact on my daily life that I can’t express in just numbers and words like “I’ve lost so and so inches or so many pounds.” Yes, I’ve lost weight and can fit in all kinds of clothes, but thanks to Steph and the others, I feel healthier than I’ve ever been, I KNOW I’m healthier and definitely stronger than I’ve ever been. Even more so than when I was a teenager, and I’m 56 years old! It’s never easy getting up at 5 in the morning, or coming to work out right after a long day at work. Sometimes I just want to lay in bed, but I know that keeping up at RF means being happier and healthier, and I can’t ever image my daily routine without it.     If you want change your life to come join us! http://revolutionfitnesstraining.com/ We have some great deals going on right now through Groupon!

Where to begin...

Where to begin... I am a 56 year old women who has survived breast cancer and has had bilateral hip replacements. I have always exercised, mostly cardio with a little weight training but was not getting the results I had hoped for. When a co-worker told me about Stephanie and "Revolution Fitness" I thought I would give it a try.....after all the first workout is free!!!!   I must admit after that first workout I hurt in places I didn't know could hurt!  I realized that this "boot camp" workout could be just what I needed. I signed up for 1 month of "boot camp".  My measurements, weight and photos were taken. Stephanie calculated my % body fat and % lean muscle.....I had my starting point!!!  At the end of the month all measurements etc. were redone.  My % lean muscle was up while my % body fat was down...I was excited to see and feel the positive results....that was 6 months ago and I am still getting leaner and stronger ��. Our/My health is precious and requires our active participation to be maintained.  Working out is not easy but the benefits far out weigh the work...."LIVE LONGER STRONGER."

I am a 37 year old...

I am a 37 year old married mother of one. Since having my daughter I had been struggling with my weight. Before starting at Revolution Fitness I had been watching my diet and exercising regularly and had managed to lose 30lbs. I had reached a plateau and was getting frustrated. I heard about Revolution Fitness through a co-worker. After my first workout I was hooked!! I instantly could tell I was working muscle groups I had not worked before. I made the decision to sign up for the unlimited boot camp package. Seven months later I have managed to lose 6% body fat while gaining lean muscle and couldn't be happier with the results. I have not felt this strong and healthy since I was in my 20s. Added bonus is my husband has noticed the difference and he LOVES IT!! UPDATE: I have been a member of Revolution Fitness for 3 years now and could not be happier for the decision I made to join. My goals over the last 3 years have continued to progress. Initially I just wanted to lose the extra weight that I had been holding onto since my pregnancy. When I met that goal the next one was to get my body fat down to 15% which was no easy feat since my starting body fat was around 26%. I am happy to say that I was able to accomplish that this spring. With the encouragement of Steph and other members my new goal is to see if I am able to get my body fat down to 12%. The workouts can be challenging at times but when I finish I feel a since of accomplishment. I can honestly say if I have to miss a day I get frustrated. The classes offered provide a stress relief form me that I didn’t have before. Steph is always there to encourage and push you to do the best that you can. She knows what each member of the gym is capable of and pushes them to perform their best. Yet she also knows when a person is not able to perform certain exercises and makes modifications for them as well. The comradery with the other members is also key to making the workouts fun. Everyone is always encouraging you to finish those tough workouts. Some even will do extra reps after they are finished so you aren’t left as the last one completing the exercise. I have honestly made lifelong friendships with other members of the gym. We are like one big happy family. I have been able to accomplish so many things since joining Revolution Fitness. I have completed several 5K runs which speaks volumes for someone never being a fan of running. Steph also encourages members to participate in several other events throughout the year such as the Warrior Dash, Savage Race, and Beast Bootcamp to name a few. This past spring I competed in my first Festivus competition and for being 41 years old I think I did extremely well competing with people in their 20s. I enjoyed the competition so much I let Steph talk me into joining the partner Festivus competition this fall with another member from the gym

Before contacting Coach Steph...

Before contacting Coach Steph at Revolution Fitness, I had lost 40 pounds however, I lost it the wrong way by not eating, dieting, stress, etc.  My eating habits were horrible. I knew I needed help on living a healthier lifestyle with good nutrition and an exercise routine. I contacted a friend of mine who I watched transform her life into a more healthy and fit lifestyle. We reviewed my lifestyle and what I was looking to accomplish, she recommended Coach Steph at Revolution Fitness.  I was not the workout type, but contacted her and went to see Coach Steph.  I didn't really know what I was walking into.  She put together a workout schedule and we began to work on my food plan.  We decided on 3 day a week Semi-Private Personal Training plan it's very challenging but rewarding. I didn't know how long I would stick with this new lifestyle, well it's now been 6 months and I love it!  Coach Steph really keeps on you with food logs and always pushes you in the workout sessions. I have lost and additional 15 pounds, lost another 15 pounds of fat and my body fat has gone done 5%+ since joining Revolution Fitness.  I've started running and doing 5k's and have now signed up for several obstacle races/runs with members of Revolution Fitness and Coach Steph.  My blood pressure and blood sugar have all gone back to acceptable/healthy levels.  I feel much better and life is good now!  The staff and members at Revolution Fitness are amazing and have become my second family.  Joining Revolution Fitness has been the best decision I could make!

I started my journey...

I started my journey off weighting in at 375 lbs , the Dr said I was a border line diabetic. I had lost 20 lbs before joining Revolution Fitness that is really where I had to get serious. Coach Steph and I put together a plan that worked for me , i started off working out 3 times a week ,now I work out 5 to 6 times a week. As of today I'm down 60 plus pounds, I'm 57 years old it has been one of the toughest things I have done, but the most rewarding. Eveyone is so supportive I highly recommend Coach Steph and Revolution Fitness.

After treatment for breast cancer...

After treatment for breast cancer, I made the conscience decision to change to a healthier lifestyle.  When I first met Steph Woods, I was severely weak from several surgeries & chemotherapy.  I was also over weight, had poor mobility, little flexibility & became severely winded by just simply walking up & down my stairs at home as a result of my poor eating habits & sedentary lifestyle.

 Now I can proudly say that after working out with Steph as my training & nutrition coach for the past 3 years, I am 4 sizes smaller, increased my lean weight from 121.35 to 132.57, dropped my fat weight from 59.64 to 33.43 & dropped my body fat percentage from 32.95% to 20.14%.

 With Steph in my corner, she has encouraged me to push myself to a stronger, leaner & more self-confidant me.  I enjoy the camaraderie & friendships that I find at Revolution Fitness. Instead of sitting at home watching TV, I now find myself with the Revolution Fitness Team participating in community events such as 5K runs, obstacle course activities & physically challenging fundraisers that I never would have dreamed of doing before.

 I beat cancer twice & because of Steph Woods & Revolution Fitness I am thoroughly enjoying a healthy active life.
