UpLift has been the perfect place to get back on a healthy routine. As a former collegiate athlete, I was used to getting programs made for me. When I graduated, it was difficult for me to workout out consistently and come up with exercises on my own. Having knowledgeable trainers develop personalized programs for me has been a game changer. The trainers do a great job of encouraging and challenging me while ensuring I meet my fitness goals. So far, I have lost 30 pounds, have a 6% reduction in body fat, and am down total body, 15 inches. More importantly, I feel healthier, have more energy, and have found a community where I know I will continue to show up and stay engaged.
After researching the choices, I decided UpLift was the place for me. The trainers are great; they’re always on the floor teaching, assisting, and keeping me motivated. They help me understand nutrition and the best nutrient-dense foods my body needs to be at its healthiest. I love every routine, and the results have far exceeded my expectations. I feel better, stronger and healthier than ever! Update: I have had two babies now and did the pregnancy workouts UpLift developed throughout my pregnancy. It has made labor and delivery easier, as well as getting my body back after my babies were born. As Mom’s, we must take care of ourselves, even when life gets really busy. The guidance I receive at UpLift is amazing!
Joining UpLift Guided Fitness has significantly improved the quality of my life! I lost seven pounds and saw a notable difference in muscle tone in just my first several weeks of membership. I feel more energetic and confident, I am stronger and have easily been able to maintain my ideal weight this year. My friends have been singing the praises of UpLift for years. After my hysterectomy a few years ago, my metabolism really slowed and I was slowly gaining extra weight and feeling less energetic. I decided to give Uplift a try knowing that strength training and good nutrition would make all the difference in my health. UpLift offers a perfect balance of training & support. I love having my workout changed every 12 visits (every month). It cost thousands of dollars over a few months for my husband and I to work with a trainer at a local big box gym I love that UpLift is a women’s only gym and I love the staff and the energy of the members. I recommend Upift every time I have an opportunity because the experience has been so positive for me personally!
At least 30 pounds overweight when I discovered Uplift. With very little upper body strength, I set out to get strong and healthy. Jill kept encouraging me to weight in and measure regularly, so I gave in and made an appointment. I decided if I was going to start working out, it made sense to make an effort to eat better and try to lose some weight too. That evening changed my life. Jill and I talked about what I eat, when I eat and why I eat and she made several suggestions for improving and changing my habits. She challenged me to not eat bread for three weeks, change my breakfast to two eggs, a bunch of sautéed veggies. I knew sugar was my downfall, so I decided to try to eliminate them, and while I was at it, no pasta either. I would allow myself a square of dark chocolate every day and low sugar fruits such as berries to make my sweet tooth happy. We also set a limit of a glass of wine one or two days a week. I could eat chocolate and drink wine so I was happy! We created a workout plan, and I decided I would take off only one day per week. Three days a week I would lift and do at least 20 minutes of cardio; three more days I would do 45-60 minutes of cardio. Today I can happily say I have lost 43 pounds and more than 32 inches from my hips, waist, thighs, arms, and chest. I went from a size 14-16 to a size 6-8. If I can impart wisdom to anyone reading this it would be that it is never too late to get in shape. Take the time to care for yourself. We only get one body and keeping it healthy is one of the most important things we can do as we journey through life! The trainers at Uplift truly care about you and want to help you reach your goals –no matter how long it may take!
I joined UpLift in November of 2006. When I started, the only thing I knew about resistance training was that it was something I “should” do, because it was good for maintaining bone density and gaining core stability. I never thought I could gain visible muscles. I cannot believe how much my feelings have changed! Resistance training is the key to fitness and good health. I love lifting weights. I plan to have resistance training in my exercise plan forever. I have lost 20 pounds without really trying. I’ve lost inches and measurements. I’ve gained muscles that I can actually see. I’ve made changes to my diet with the guidance of UpLift. I eat more whole grains, more blueberries, and more vegetables than I ever had before. UpLift is an incredible place to start and continue your exercise program. The personal one-on-one attention is second to none. If I have a question, there’s always someone there to help. The monthly program changes are essential in keeping fitness fun and interesting. The personal attention that I get at UpLift would cost much more money at another gym.
I became a member at UpLIft because I wanted to get strong and fit! UpLIft has a very guided approach and I meet with a personal trainer every 12 workouts to get a new routine. Free personal training included in my membership! I knew I needed resistance training to maintain healthy bones and to develop strong muscle structure as I aged. After joining UpLift, my bone density increased almost 6 percent. My doctors were astonished and so was I. After an hour session, I feel revived physically and emotionally. I am physically stronger because I go to UpLift. My arms are firmer and shapelier and I have great balance. I feel better emotionally and not just on workout days, but for days after. I know this may sound silly, but my vision is clearer, my thought process more focused. More importantly, I feel happy, healthy, content – like superwoman! UpLift trainers have helped me understand nutrition as well. The trainers help you get your nutrition on track and encourage eating often, moderation, and education. They help you change your eating habits. I love talking to women about UpLift! I tell them all of the above, and add that the energy and good spirits of all the members adds to this special “women-only” atmosphere. You will love it here
I was the very first member at UpLift when it opened in 2005. When I joined, I considered myself active and in good shape; I was at the gym pretty much every day! After I went through my initial assessment with Jill and Chris at UpLift. I quickly realized that I had hit a plateau and would never get in better shape if all I did was cardio 7 days a week. I started gaining muscle and losing fat after only a couple months at UpLIft. At the same time, I was learning balanced healthy eating habits (which I thought I knew but was dead wrong!). Two years later, when I turned 35, I was in my best shape ever! At 5’1” tall, I weighed 107 lbs. and, most importantly, I felt great and absolutely loved my body. Then, I got pregnant and gained 35 lbs! Jill and Chris were there for me; they developed a special workout routine and I lifted weights all the way until the day before I had my baby. And I was back at UpLift six weeks later. UpLift’s encouragement and routines that change every 12 workouts, along with my discipline and adherence to the exercise routine, and consistent approach to healthy eating, definitely paid off. Thank you, UpLift! (Alona lost 10 lbs., 15 inches, and 19 mm in her caliper measurements. She trimmed 5 inches off her waist, and 3.5 inches from her hips.)
