The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have Transformed their health and fitness. The Get You In Shape Spotlight clients for August certainly have made HUGE strides in their first 5 months of the Get You In Shape program. Brooke & Heather both started boot camp in March of 2014 and developed a friendship at boot camp while increasing their fitness and health. Check it out below.
Question #1 Name, what you do, and where do you live?
Brooke: I am the Branch Manager for an Irrigation and Landscape Supplies Distributor and I live in Coppell, TX.
Question #2 Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
Brooke: I joined to lose weight, get back in shape, gain self-confidence, and develop better eating habits.
Heather: I found the Groupon for Get You in Shape and decided to join to get into a regular workout routine. I have really enjoyed the consistency the program provides, expertise of the trainers, and the great workouts.
Question #3 What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Brooke: As far as exercising, I was very inconsistent and had no routine. I had low energy, especially towards the end of the day. Just overall, I felt very “blah”.
Heather: I have always led a healthy lifestyle, but after starting a career in Corporate America it became more of a challenge to find time to workout. The Get You in Shape program provides flexibility and works really well with my work schedule.
Question #4 What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
Brooke: Within the first week I knew I would love the routine. The times fit into my schedule well and I immediately made a friend (Heather) to help keep me accountable. In just the first month I felt better about myself and my body. I had more energy and most of all was in the routine of going and enjoyed working out.
Heather: Loved it!! The trainers provide a great atmosphere where they work with your fitness level and also challenge you to do better. I really like that each workout is different.
Question #5 What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
Brooke: I’m doing the Summer Slim Down Challenge. The Advocare products work well for me. I like the accountability calendar and the My Fitness Pal App as well.
Heather: I have utilized the MyFitnessPal app and the Get You in Shape emails with tips and links. Also, I love the access to the Member Only Website, which includes the trainer tip blog, nutrition plan and program ideas, and the Get You In Shape Program/Exercise booklets.
Question #6 How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? What makes Get you In Shape different or unique?
Brooke: I feel like there is more client involvement and comradery than any other program I have tried. The workouts are tough but fun. Never boring and never the same thing over and over again. It keeps you engaged and wanting to come back for more. The trainers are motivating and super nice. From the Trainer Tips emails and the fun stuff like Build Your Own Program, it keeps it fun and GYIS provides so many tools to help.
Heather: The amazing trainers & staff that organize and make everything possible. The other boot campers also make this program a great experience with additional motivation and support.
Question #7 What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
Brooke: As far as results, I’ve lost more inches than pounds. Which just tells me I’m gaining muscle and losing fat! After 3 months, I’ve lost 1.5” off my chest, 3” off my waist, 2.25” from my hips, and 2” from both thighs. I’ve lost 4lbs from my starting weight. I have so much more energy and self-confidence now! I feel good about myself and I feel good about how I look. I’m much more conscience about what I eat and I feel much healthier overall.
Heather: I have felt a huge improvement in my energy during the day and I am also sleeping better at night. I feel great! Since starting in March, I have lost 7 pounds and noticed an improvement in muscle tone. I started off with a 8.32 minute mile and I am now down to 7.41–very exciting!
Question #8 What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
Brooke: To anyone looking at this program I would say join. You will not find a better program with better people that actually works. Joining was one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself.
Heather: Come try it out! If you are looking for improvement, results, and a great training staff – then this is the perfect program.
