Lizzy's Success story

Lizzy’s Story

What is your motivation?

My motivation comes from multiple sources, my most important motivation is my son. He motivates me to push myself to be the absolute best version of myself. He see?s me work hard to do my best, giving him motivation to workout and be healthy. Also people who tell me how far I?ve come, ask for help when they?re first starting off in their fitness journey. It shows that the results of my hard work is apparent, and this motivates others. This in turn motivates me to do even more.

What brought you to Advantage Personal Training?

I was working out at another gym, doing insane cardio and using no weights. I wasn?t losing any weight. A friend suggested I try an Advantage?s Challenge. Two years later I have lost several pounds of fat doing heavy lifting and very little cardio. I?ve gained a ?ton? of muscle, and it?s all because I accepted the Advantage Personal Training Challenge.

What keeps you coming back to Advantage Personal Training?

The atmosphere, the trainers, always being pushed and motivated to do more. It?s the best gym you could be a part of!
