I’m noticing toning in my arms and calves…

“My son finally convinced me to not only start working out, but to get a Club 24 training membership. He told me to give it 6 weeks, if I didn’t see or feel any changes, I could quit.

I have to admit the first week was a challenge for me, I have never worked out enough to be sore before but I stuck to it. It got easier and within the first two weeks I was sleeping through the night, something that hasn’t happened in years.

By week number four, I was noticing some toning coming back into my arms and calves. My family even started to notice my increased strength and muscle tone. I am now on week number 13 and it is working, thanks to my son and Club 24.”

I am already down 10 lbs…

“ I joined Club 24 almost 2 months ago. I was nervous, the only exercise experience I had was PE in school almost 20 years ago and I am the heaviest I have ever been. The club 24 staff set me up with an assessment – the best $30 I have ever spent. I am already down 10 lbs and I feel the best I have felt in a long time – thanks Club 24.”

“Tomorrow marks 3 months since my first group training at Club24…

JerrySooter_beforeI’ve really enjoyed the work-outs and look forward to the variety. This evening I was reflecting on the last 12 weeks and decided I’d take a few minutes to share some thoughts and observations.

Several months prior to making the switch to Club24, I had heard someone from Club24 talking to the KONA radio guys about the training classes. For some reason that stuck in my mind and I remembered it when I started looking for a new gym. Club24 on Gage is on my way to/from work, so it is a perfect location for me. I stopped one day on my way home from work; Gilbert showed me around and talked about the group classes. He offered a 1 week free trial, so I really didn’t have anything to loose. I found that I really liked the classes…the routine is pre-planned; I don’t have to think about what exercise to do on a given day or wait in line to use a piece of equipment. Just show up and put in the work. Results followed. I signed up for the Group Training membership after my trial period expired.

My results are not as fast or dramatic as what I want, but most things in life never really give you instant gratification. Over the past 3 months, I’ve dropped about 15 pounds, 2% body fat, have had to buy smaller pants, am sleeping better, and have more energy. Thanks to all the trainers for their support!

What ‘clicked’ and made me start coming in 4-6 days/week? I can’t really say for sure. Maybe it was another so-so check-up with the family doctor and him telling me (yet again) to get more exercise. Maybe it was seeing myself in pictures. Maybe it was frustration with clothes that were getting tighter. Whatever the case, something clicked and I actually look forward to my daily work-outs.

My motivation for continuing is the fact that I HAVE seen some results. Without some kind of tangible results, it is so easy to stop. The training staff ensures that I don’t just slog through 30 minutes on the elliptical; they push me to keep going and working harder each day…something that I wasn’t managing to do when working-out on my own. There can be a fine line with their pushing, especially considering that I’m 49 and most of the trainers are in their 20’s and 30’s (who wants someone the age of their son or daughter telling them what to do?). They all do a great job of walking that fine line; motivating and pushing, without making me feel foolish if I have to take a break partway through an exercise.”

I lost 7.1% body fat…

“I signed up for a Club 24 training membership September 1st, 2011 (right after my last Benton Franklin County Fair elephant ear.) I was up to 23.2% body fat and 183lbs, the heaviest I have ever been. On December 1st, 2011, I was down only 5lbs but my body fat dropped to 16.1%! I LOST 7.1% body fat! I was discouraged at first because I watched the scale every week and not much changed. Looking back I am amazed at my results. THE PROGRAM WORKS.”

It has been an amazing journey…

“I recently started my Club 24 training membership three weeks ago and I am already down 10lbs. I was scared at first, I didn’t think I could keep up because of my knee injury and weight but it has been an amazing journey. We are in small groups and, I work out with all kinds of people that end up pushing me more than I typically push myself. I can’t wait to see where I am at in the next 3 weeks.”
