October 2015 Member of the Month: Denise Lovell

When I started at Body Renew, I had pain in my shoulder, back, hips, and knees. It seemed as if, one part at a time, my body was giving up on me- so I decided to hire a trainer and change that! A year later, with James McKinley, I am so very thankful I signed up and was given to someone who would understand my issues be patient working with me. The only pains I get now are the ones from him kicking my butt during our workouts! We set goals to walk up stairs without problems, be pain free, and weigh 130 with tone and definition. I have accomplished all that and at 40 years old I have never felt better!                                              Trainer Testimonial: Denise approached our training with the perfect mindset of determination and perseverance. She has faced more adversity, inside and outside the club, then I usually see, and she has done it with class and a ferocity I admire. She had some setups with injuries, had some unexpected complications, yet here is she is with goals met, a smile on her face, a positive attitude, and the drive to run her health and fitness on her own. I couldn’t be more proud of her and I know she will be successful on her own!

September 2015 Member of the Month: Tammy Budahl

All of a sudden I was Fifty, Fat, and Frustrated with growing health problems. In December 2014 after two trips to the ER, I decided it was past time to take charge of my life and get healthy through lifestyle changes. By not allowing myself to focus on the 100 lbs I had to lose and by shifting any negative thoughts towards only the good things in life, I was able to conquer mental road blocks that I was too old and too out of shape to join a gym. By taking small steps and celebrating the journey, I’m really enjoying the process of getting healthy and having more energy than I’ve had in years! I also look and feel 10 years younger. I’m proud that Body Renew is now a life partner towards keeping my lifestyle goals on track. The trainers and members are phenomenal. Surrounding myself around positive people with the same goals at Body Renew continues to make it fun. My trainer, Solomeia Kojin has been instrumental in my success. Solo’s vast knowledge of training and nutrition along with her follow up on my progress keeps me inching towards by final goal of being Fifty, Fit, and Fabulous.*                                                                                                                                                                                                              Trainer Testimonial: Helping Tammy on this journey has been my pride and joy. I am amazed at how positive, consistent, and coachable she is. Her results and outlook remind me of why I enjoy being a fit pro when I have a tough day.*       *Your individual results may vary.

August 2015 Member of the Month: Alexander Mendoza

MOTM Alexander MendozaI have been training with body renew for a year now. I can truly say it has been a wonderful transformation. When I began, I had just finished physical therapy for knee reconstruction. I sought someplace to train, but even then, by myself I seldom went beyond comfort. I seemed to just sit there wondering what to do next. Not knowing really how to train, I knew I would eventually lose interest and just give up. With my doctors consent I sought further assistance. I remember when I started with my trainer; I could barely do 5 lunges, was overweight, and now at 47 felt tired most of the time do to inactivity. Well my trainer Pawel Przetocki was not excepting excuses. He did for me what I was unable to do for myself, motivate and encourage me to push on. With his help and expertise, I found renewed determination to leave the tiered and unhealthy person I use to be, and push on to a renewed body, strengthened and full of energy. It wasn’t easy at first but with the equipment and trainers at Body Renew I soon started to see improvement. Soon I was running again, hiking and feeling so much better about myself, which was the best part of it, the more confidence I gained the better I felt. My doctor was amazed, I had lost 45 lbs. gained muscle and my knee was no longer an issue. I hope to continue on this path and new life style that I have learned as a member of Body Renew.*                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Trainer Testimonial: It has been an absolute privilege to train Alexander over the past year. He maintains an endless positive attitude, and an enduring willingness to tackle any exercise, no matter how grueling. This new version of himself is enjoying much more energy and vitality, enabling him to live each day to the fullest.*

July 2015 Member of the Month: Todd Heuston

When I started I was out of shape and on medications to control blood sugar and blood pressure. I am still half way to my target weight but now realize that the goal is not as important as the journey. Now I take the pleasure in pushing myself to new challenges and new athletic goals. Stephen has altered what I believed I could be physically capable of and now I want to push myself harder and faster every day!* Trainer Testimonial: Todd’s passion for a better life in fitness plus my vision for what he could achieve were a perfect match. I have pushed him to the brink on several occasions, he continues to come back prepared for more. He has been able to conquer goals while setting new personal milestones along the way. We still have work to do. Nevertheless, reflecting on this accomplishment shows great reward! Job well done!*

June 2015 Member of the Month: Scott Moore

When I started working on my transformation about 6 years ago, I had joint and back pain associated with everyday activities, and had a lot of weight to lose. When I couldn’t tolerate the discomfort anymore, I lost a lot of weight on a fad diet, but gained it back after losing my father to cancer and letting my emotions take over. I had ballooned to 280 pounds. I got back into training at Body Renew and made progress again, but got stuck on a plateau for months even though I wasn’t near my end goal. Solo pointed out to me that my nutrition needed some serious improvements, and I soon began the 72day challenge. To my amazement, I’ve busted through that plateau and barely recognize myself in the mirror. Words cannot express how great I feel now and how much I appreciate what Solo and the rest of the staff at Body Renew have done to support me in this journey.*
