What Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness is All About

Our Group Personal Training program is specifically designed for people who want to workout with a passionate and fun group of like-minded people who have a desire to be, do and become more. We specialize in putting ALL fitness levels in a positive group environment that creates  motivation, inspiration, inspiration and accountability.  

If you have read this far then it's clear that you are truly serious about making a positive change in your life and you want more then ever to a sculpt, slim and fit body that will give you the CONFIDENCE you deserve. Most people want it, but few will actually do anything about it so let me take a minute to acknowledge YOU for taking this first step. 

I want to be very clear - this may be an important consideration for you - our program is NOT for people who want to "get their butts kicked" or walk out of a workout feeling like they've been hit by a bus. They are not for anyone who wants to be in a competition each and every workout session. Our workouts are scientifically designed to deliver body-transformation results AND make you feel & move better than ever before. Form and function are two very important factors in our training program. Don't worrying, though, as we will educate you on how to do both. 

​I also want to share that Get You In Shape is a small, family-owned business that puts a real emphasis on relationships. We consider our Clients a part of our Get You In Shape Family, and they share the same view. We’re NOT like a big-box facility or a national franchise that basically rents you equipment and may offer some personal training services for a few hours a week. Our clients’ success goes beyond the programs and services we offer.

The relationships we create and our clients’ strong desire to do business with US is how we can truly make a difference in their lives. But don't take my word for it, check out our 500 plus YouTube Success Stories on our playlist ​on the top browser. These are REAL PEOPLE with REAL Success Stories!

“Where Are They Now” Spotlight – January 2018 – Bill & Mary Brown

Success Story

Mary Brown is a pediatrician and started with GYIS in October 2008. Bill Brown is a project manager (EE) and started in December 2009. They reside in Coppell.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Mary: Before joining GYIS I got moderately consistent exercise but not really an organized or well-planned regimen. Just before joining I was walking 2-3 miles with a friend and our dogs 5 days a week. We joined GYIS together to try something different “just for a month” to see what it was like.
Bill: Before joining I had taken a 28 year break from vigorous exercise. My exercise consisted of walking whenever possible.

Q: What results and benefits did you initially experience with the Get You In Shape Program?
Mary: Initial results after joining the program were mainly development of more muscle and learning to do better cardio. I had more energy as a result of the exercise program.
Bill: I lost 5 lbs. initially, learned how to do a sit-up (needing weights on my feet in order to do it) as well as all the other exercises.

Q: What results and benefits you accomplished since that first year?
Mary: I’ve maintained my weight pretty well over the last 8-9 years. We have done 6 or 7 sprint triathlons which wouldn’t have happened without the encouragement of the GYIS trainers. I participate in 5k runs. The challenges that we have participated in through GYIS have helped with nutrition. Cardio club has been really a benefit for me since the variety of things we do, I would not do on my own.
Bill: I started running again, including going to cardio club since it began and have done numerous runs from 5k, 15k, turkey trot, 8 mile and several half marathons. I picked up biking with various friends that I met through GYIS and have done a sprint triathlon once a year.

Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?
Mary: I hadn’t been in any previous programs but would do circuits at the YMCA which was pretty repetitive. GYIS has a lot of variation in the workouts, excellent trainers and a great atmosphere. We all feel accountable to each other to show up and work out together. Everyone is encouraged to work at their own level. There is a definite feeling of community here.
Bill: This is the first program I ever tried but I saw how much Mary was enjoying it so I signed up. I never thought I could work out at 5:30 am either. I really enjoy the people and the trainers.

Q: What do you feel have been some of the keys that have helped you throughout the journey?
Mary: The consistent weekly exercise is the biggest key for me. Using myfitnesspal has helped (I do have some screenshots with 40:30:30 right on the nose). Getting to know so many people who are also trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle has also been a big motivator for me.
Bill: Consistently working out with the help of the excellent, committed trainers has been the key to my success using this program.

Coppell Trainer Rookie of the Month – January 2018 – Beccy Ratliff

Success Story

Beccy Ratliff and her husband own a Construction Management company and have lived in Coppell for 24 years.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Before joining GYIS, I was tired and had no stamina. My muscles were tight and I had no flexibility.

Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
I had enjoyed participating in the program about 5 years ago and I knew of the outcomes others have had by following the darn instructions. I also liked that GYIS gave back to the community through Special Olympics so my decision was easy about a group to join.

Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
My first impression of the GYIS program is how welcoming of all ability levels and how the trainers are always willing to work with you on form and getting the most out of every exercise. The trainers want to see you improve as much as the client.

Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
One of the best tools that I have used that has benefited me is confidence in myself with the encouragement of the trainers. I also have benefited from the nutrition classes that remind you of eating so that you attain your goals.

Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?
What makes GYIS different and unique is the opportunity to work out in the fresh air of the community parks and the comradery of the other members. You never feel like you are working towards your goals alone, but with a team of individuals who want you to succeed!

Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
Of course my ultimate goal was to lose weight so that my clothes fit better, but I wanted to make me a priority. I wanted to feel better overall and I was tired of not being able to move like I could 10-15 years ago. Through GYIS I lost 7 pounds my first month, but more importantly, I have energy to get through the day and I have more flexibility. I still have more work to do and I am excited to continue with GYIS.

Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
If you are looking for a group to help you move toward a healthy lifestyle and overall well-being then GYIS is the place for you. The motivation is more than the final goals, but the everyday progress you make.

Coppell Personal Trainer – A Tribute to personal Trainer Julie

blog , Coppell Trainer Tip

Coppell Trainer - A Tribute Video For Get You In Shape Trainer Julie McCan.

Julie McCan is sadly moving to McKinney so will be leaving the Get You In Shape Team. She leaves after having started as a client in September of 20018 and being a personal trainer since October of 2008.

Get You In Shape just celebrated out 10th year since starting the Coppell group personal training program in 2008. Julie has been with us through the journey all but 10 or 11 months here in Coppell.

I remember when Julie came to the Strategy Session with me and sharing what she was looking to achieve in her health and fitness.  She was looking for something different after recently retiring from the corporate world.

She had been on a roller coaster her entire career gaining and losing the same 25 pounds.

She wanted to put her health a priority, be consistent in an exercise routine and was looking for some variety in her workouts so that she would enjoy working out. She soon (in just a few weeks of our program) learned that Get You In Shape was the perfect fit for her.

In my situation, I started the Coppell Get You In Shape group personal training program in October of 2007. By the time Julie joined our fitness program program as a client we had grown from just one class of 5 participants to multiple session times per day and over 80 training clients in a little over 8 months.

With the growth, I was praying for a great personal to join my wife and I as a trainer so we can better serve our clients and community.

I put an email out letting everyone know I was looking for a trainer and thank God that Julie answered the call. She was only a client a few weeks when I sent that email. It was meant to be that our lives crossed paths because she answered the call. She mentioned to me that she was looking for something she could do in retirement that would be rewarding to her along with keeping her motivated and accountable to her own wellness goals. 

She did not have any experience in personal training but had all the qualities needed to lead and help make a difference in the lives of others.

She shadowed me first three months as she was working to be a Certified Personal Trainer.

I think this is a great point to make here.  

You don't get good at something over night.

I like to use Darren Hardy's quote all the time and I think it relates to this.
“Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE”

She had no experience as a personal trainer so shadowed me for 3 months while she studied to get her Certification.

Instead of learning on her own how to lead a group, how to conduct a personal training session, how to interact with clients, etc, she decided she would learn from someone with years of experience willing to help her become the best trainer she could be.

It's a lot like when a client comes to us wanting to lose 30 pounds and are not willing to follow the proven step-by-step system that has been produced over 500 Video Testimonies (that's just folks that shared a video of their results). They try to do it on their own making the process much harder and not getting the results they desire. 

Why reinvent the wheel and try doing it on your own when you can just "Follow The Darn Instructions" from a proven program?

I know very well from my personal journey that it takes time to learn and grow, I got my Master's Degree in 1999 and spent the next 8 years of learning, practicing and training. Getting better and improving in all areas that would help me serve and help people become the best version of themselves. 

After years of work, it wasn't until 2007 that things exploded in my fitness business and things grew because I had made those small consistent choices day in and day out over a period of time. 
BELOW IS A SPOTLIGHT VIDEO OF JULIE SHARING HER GYIS JOURNEY

After three months of shadowing, Julie was equipped to lead and be an awesome personal trainer.

For 9 years, Julie has been a huge part of why Get You In Shape is what it is today. She used her leadership experience from her previous corporate job to help me as a business owner. She was able to take the lead roll as our Lead Personal Trainer and help develop some of our team. 

I am forever grateful that she answered the call.

With Julie leaving comes some CHANGE.

Life is a series of "seasons" so with that comes Change. Some are easier that others. Luckily, we have known about this change for close to a year so it's been a gradual realization that Julie will be moving. 

Either ways, it's CHANGE.

Change for me as the business owner.

Change for Julie as she moves to her dream home and closer to your grandbaby. 

Change for the Get You In Shape Team.

Change for our clients, many of whom have changed their lifestyle with Julie's help.

Change is inevitable with life.

I have come to understand that I have to be grateful for the time Julie was with us.

I have to share how Thankful I am for your friendship and for the time she was able to give to be a part of our team.

I also have to realize that CHANGE is happening now. 

Thankfully, we have been blessed with some amazing trainers in which will take over the sessions so we don't miss a beat as a business helping others look, feel and perform better on a daily basis. 

I have to realize that after the gratefulness, I need to embrace that change has to take place.

How does this relate to you?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and new something has to change?

Have you ever been asked by your kids "come on..let's play tag!" and you are not in shape to even run around and play a game of tag?

Have you put some clothes on and they were too tight for you to wear?

Have you have received bad news from the doctor about your health? 

These are all signs that a lifestyle CHANGE needs to occur. 

I believe we all have a desire to be more, do more and become more.

I believe we all have the desire to be the best versions of ourselves.

I believe we all have the desire to be a better spouse and parent. 

How can we do that?

We all know that it's tough to face the facts that we need to make some changes in our habits. 

With 2018 upon us...I put together a Free Goal Setting Training on how to make those changes.  CLICK HERE to download it.
