A brief history at Amplified Fitness. Tell us how you got started and your experience.
— My daughter Noelle joined the Fitness Challenge last January. I could see that through Amplified she was stronger physically, emotionally, and mentally. Her confidence levels and self-esteem were the highest I’ve ever seen… when I was looking for an improvement in my own physical well-being, I looked towards Amplified and took the Challenge!
The success and struggles you have been through at Amplified Fitness?
— I’ve seen my weight and body fat numbers improve better than I could have imagined. At 57 years old, I believe I am at the best shape of my life, simply because your pillars (fitness, nutrition and support) work. No struggles… I was “coached” that I will only get what I put in. So the struggles are really stepping stones to my success.
How often do you attend sessions at Amplified Fitness? —
I attend no less than 5 days a week and try to squeeze in a Savage Saturday in when I want to really test my limits. But, I do increase my activities, even outside of Amplified in order to meet my goals.
Making new Amplified friends… and then watching as those friendships flourish because of similar goals. Also… seeing other’s progress!
Least favorite movement? Least favorite workout? Least favorite moment…
Hmmm, I guess when the protein shakes hit 🙂 Least favorite workout? What else… burpees 🙂
Maintain weight, yet recompose fat weight to muscle weight.
Anything else you want to share about yourself: what you do for fun, what you do for work?
Married for 26 wonderful years, with three amazing kids. Lately, we’ve been travelling A LOT. Italy, Hawaii, England, Paris, tons of states… love it! 28-year member of the United States Air Force, set to “retire” next year (which simply means transition to a new career)
-What keeps you keep coming back for more?
The people. The culture. The support. The coaches. The burpees.
What do you like most about Amplified Fitness?
Exactly as Thomas said from day one: it’s a family.
Which charity have your chosen for Amplified Fitness to donate to?
Primary children’s Hospital.
Would you rather do 500 burpees in a chewbacca costume or drag a 100lb sled 10 miles?
I’ll take the sled. I figure I lost 25 pounds, so it’s really ony a 75 pound sled.
What Would You Tell Someone That Was Considering Joining Amplified Fitness?
It’s an investment in yourself… much more than a gym, but rather a true tribe in which you can find success if you apply yourself.
