Patrick wrote us to thank Tiana for the great results she helped him achieve during the 40-day Training Challenge: “After rehabbing my injured knee for the past 10 months this program provided me with a great bridge bringing me back to fitness. During the 40 days I achieved all of my goals including improved strength and conditioning. Through the increased activity and Tiana’s nutritional counseling, I also achieved a substantial weight loss. Tiana is an excellent coach that has a tremendous understanding of fitness and movement patterns. She was able to modify each exercise to make it both safe and effective for me. Thank you for everything, Patrick”

He always gives 100% and his coordination, strength and agility have all seen great improvement. Always entertaining us with a story or ancecdote, Owen has become a fundamental part of our Dryland group. Congrats, Owen!

Carter was new to the Dryland program last fall. He immediately showed us he was a force to be reckoned with. Carter’s high energy level was at times a challenge to harness, however, he showed what he was made of and has made remarkable strides. His natural athleticism helps in the agility drills as well as strength and balance drills. Great job, Carter!

“Throughout my training at Parisi I have noticed a significant change in my speed and my overall strength. I couldn’t be more grateful for my trainers Jen and Vince.

I am very excited to continue my training with both Vince & Jen.” – Soccer Player Chayce Buono

Step Dancer Grace McClay

Parisi Speed School Athlete: Step Dancer Grace McClay
Parisi Speed School has enhanced Grace’s performance on the stage and on the soccer field.

“I started training with Jessica at Parisi Speed School because I wanted to become stronger, faster and more agile, which would help me with my two main sports — Irish dancing and soccer.  I danced at the World Championships for Irish dancing earlier this year, and it is my goal to qualify to compete there again next year, so I need do a lot of extra work in addition to dancing to help me to meet my goal.  In the short amount of time I have been training with Jessica, she has helped me so much. My strength has improved and my speed has increased tremendously. Every time I come to train, even though I’m tired and sweating, I have fun because my trainer is there beside me pushing me. Also, when I feel like I can’t do anymore, I tell myself I can do it, and that it’s only going to help me. I believe there is no limit to the ability to be successful; you can do anything and everything is possible. I’m so excited to continue training and to see additional improvements in the future.” – Step Dancer & Soccer Player Grace McClay

“Grace has made incredible progress since starting Parisi training. She is the perfect example of how skills of strength, speed, and agility, translate through all platforms, such as dance. Grace always comes to training in high spirits and eager to challenge herself. It is a pleasure to see Grace’s skills and confidence evolve through training.”– Coach Jess Petti

Fitness Success Story: Janet Murff

October 19, 2016 by karen

Healthier and happier — Club Fit Member Janet Murff started training with Personal Trainer Candice O’Brien in 2015 and is now stronger, fitter, and happier.

 

Club Fit Member Janet Murff and Personal Trainer Candice O’Brien — working together to help Janet reach her goals.

“I’d like to express my appreciation to my trainer Candice and Club Fit. I am thrilled! The physical & mental benefits of exercise are amazing.

When I made my decision in November 2015 to have a personal trainer, I was out of shape and feeling stressed from two years of the life changing activities of caring for one’s parents; too much driving, too much sitting. Realizing what a difference a trainer would mean to my success, I signed up — and as luck would have it, I was paired with the right trainer from day one. I began with the goals of improved health and fitness. I knew that I could only commit to two or three gym visits per week. Consistency would make it work. Weight loss was far down my list. Today, I am much stronger, fitter, more toned, and happier than I was a year ago. Weight loss has been a bonus. I know that I could not have done this alone. I am excited to set new goals for 2017 and look forward to continue working with Candice to help me reach these.” – Club Fit Member Janet Murff

Congratulations to Janet on her hard work and her commitment to health!

Soccer Player Gabriel Nieves has seen improvement in his game in just a few short months.

Parisi Speed School has helped me improve my game a lot in only a few months. I am now faster, and stronger, which helps me get to the ball faster so my  finishing is better. Hopefully in the next few months I can improve on my game even more.” – Soccer Player Gabriel Nieves

“Gabriel has been training in Parisi consistently since May. In three months, he has increased his explosiveness, as well as his lateral movement, which has improved his soccer game. Gabriel is one of the hardest workers in the program. His attention to detail and commitment is what sets him apart from other athletes. He is always the first one to demonstrate a drill for a new athlete and never leaves the facility without giving his fellow athletes a high five. Because of his work ethic, determination, and sportsmanship, he is a pleasure to train and I am confident he will go far in his soccer career.” – Coach Jen Ritz

Fitness Success Story: Kathi Grossman

July 29, 2016 by karen

Kathi Grossman joined Club Fit in October of 2013 at the recommendation of her doctors. Read how Club Fit has helped to impact her life and help her reach her fitness goals.

 

Kathi before, and how she looks today, showing her remarkable transformation.
Kathi before, and how she looks today. Amazing progress on her fitness journey!

 

I have been morbidly obese all my life. I ended up with Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, arthritis, and no cartilage in one of my knees. I was injecting insulin up to four times a day and taking numerous medications. I finally had enough! I had WLS (weight loss surgery) on September 22, 2011, and lost 210 pounds, which changed my life more than I ever could have imagined. Within hours of the WLS I was off all medications. I am still medication free, except for supplements. Having been obese all my life, as the weight came off, other issues arose. No core, no muscle tone, loose skin EVERYWHERE!! My doctor gave me a prescription to join Club Fit on the HelpRx program, which was the best thing that could have happened to me. Personal Trainer Russ was my first encounter with a trainer. I was pretty intimidated, but Russ took his time, listened to me and my physical limitations, and designed a routine just for me. This was the beginning — I started taking classes, and I mean everything, even things I thought I couldn’t do just to challenge myself. I started with Retro-Low, Low-impact Zumba, Kickboxing, Definitions, 4×4, Corebar, Spin, and Yoga. If they had a class I was there. I started to see where I fit and what I liked to do. This could have been overwhelming as exercise was NEVER a part of my life. Now I love to spin and weight train and do a few machines. The instructors were excellent and most helpful. There are so many wonderful people who have escorted me on my journey. There is, however, one person who stands out and that is General Manager Mark Cuatt. He took me under his wing and gave me a crash course in nutrition and then an exercise regimen for me to follow. He didn’t have to do that; he has enormous responsibilities running the club on a day-to-day basis. Nonetheless, we would meet at the gym, I would email him my food menus and things started to change again! This has not been an easy journey. I had a few setbacks but, to date, I have lost 250 pounds!! As I type the number it seems surreal.

I take advantage of most of the things Club Fit offers. I have a MYZONE belt, I use it always and should I forget it, I am lost. I do the FIT-3D scans, which help you see the transformation you are attaining. This experience would not have been as successful without the help of so many of the personal trainers, instructors and coaches. I wish I could name all of you, as you are all very special to me, because at one time you made it a point to help me with your time, advice or even a friendly “Hello!”. ALL of you have made an impact in changing NOT only my outward appearance but teaching me that being healthy is an everyday choice. Mark Cuatt told me once, I am always going to wage this battle in my head with my weight. Some days I’ll win and some days I’ll lose; but “never give up” is the moral of this story.

So I thank Club Fit for helping me find ME—the me I was meant to be. You have helped to give a healthy me back to my husband, children and granddaughter. Hopefully I will be around a long time still working out, and if I can inspire ONE person through my story, then I have made a difference!

Grace showing some of the hard work that helped her achieve her weight-loss goal

“My name is Grace, I came to America in August of 2015. Because of the rich food here I gained nearly 20 pounds in four months. I struggled with the food every minute when I went to supermarket and dining out. The struggle with food took up a lot of my energy and I became depressed so I decided to go to the gym to lose weight and reshape my body. I met with Personal Trainer Dan Lo Cascio and told him my goals were: 1. lose 15 pounds, 2. reduce the fat around my waist, especially abdominal fat, and 3. build lean muscle, look fit and slim! Dan created the plan according to my goals and divided the whole workouts as piece by piece. I never felt bored and I was always challenged! We had a lot of fun every day and I looked forward to the training the next day! I was excited to come to Club Fit each day! Finally we achieved every goal! I didn’t believe we could achieve the goals because we only had one month. My weight went from 53.6kg to 46kg. I lost 17 pounds; two pounds over my goal! Dan did it! I followed his plan step by step. He is amazing; everyone said my body is fitter when I went back China! I am so luckily to meet Dan! Thank you very much Dan! I really recommend Dan. He made a boring hard workout become an enjoyable workout! And most important thing is it really works and helped me a lot… allowing me to build my confidence and get active again!!!!”

Congratulations to Grace on her hard work

Joe’s before and after pics show visible results!

 

Leslie transformed my life and has given me the confidence, ability, and knowledge to resume exercising after being afraid due to my hip replacements and dislocations at such a young age. I have been to multiple trainers in the past, and none of them compares to Leslie: she really understands how the body works and is able to individualize to her client’s needs; For example, her exercises have strengthened the muscles around my hips to prevent dislocation, strengthened my core, and improved my balance. I was ready to give up exercising altogether until I met Leslie! I do not fear of dislocating anymore, and even my surgeon agrees my hips and gait are much stronger. While in graduate school, my son put on excess weight, but has spent the last nine months committed to Leslie’s routine and has lost the weight. Leslie made him feel comfortable and confident that he could do it, and he now looks like a different person. Leslie knew exactly what to do to help Joe. Not only does he look great on the outside, but he more importantly improved his inner physiological health. Leslie is the best! We both recommend her with the highest regard. Sincerely yours, Deborah Dwyer”

We love hearing from happy members who have achieved their goals and gotten results. Congratulations to Deborah & Joe on their hard work and their commitment to health!
