Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
Gina: I joined GYIS to improve my lifestyle, to eat healthy, exercise regularly and feel better. For me exercise and eating right go hand in hand.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Gina: I’ve always led an active lifestyle.
Bob: Actually I thought life was good a lot of customer entertainment with high calorie meals, lots of product sampling, with little or no time for exercise.
Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
Gina: At first it was tough, I felt soreness in muscles that I didn’t realize I had. I loved the sense of community, the trainer’s encouragement and the explanations of exercise modifications depending on fitness levels.
Bob: It took me a while to get it I would sign up for a three month program thinking it would kick start me into working out on my own. I did not see the results I wanted and needed until I committed to full year. I than realized the GYIS was a great way to help change my lifestyle.
Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
Gina: My recent life changer has been using MyFitnessPal, this has been an eye opener to record the food I’m consuming. Also, the GYIS Facebook and weekly tips and workouts are great!
Bob: Monthly weight and measurement tracking have been instrumental in keeping me motivated. Group contests such as The Biggest Winner, Mileage Challenges, etc., helps you to keep yourself accountable to fellow team mates. I have recently been using the GYIS face book page for extra dieting and exercise tips.
Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?
Gina: Of course I have a gym membership, but that’s all on my own. GYIS, gives me the sense of community and the encouragement of fellow boot campers. We are all in this together with similar goals in mind. Love the flexibility of class times being offered and the weekly communication keeps me motivated.
Bob: The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and genuinely care about each individual they coach. Brad and Cynthia Linder have also created a great community atmosphere with their GYIS business. They have truly paid their good fortune forward by participating in numerous community events to benefit many folks in need.
Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
Gina: Recently we participated in a team event to lose weight, this was fun and the friendly competition was good. I lost 9 pounds in just 6 weeks, made some new friends, used MyFitnessPal consistently, and feel great. It has also helped that Bob and I are in this program together. Although we don’t normally work out together, we eat better and encourage each other.
Bob: In the first month I lost 8 pounds and continued to lose two to three pounds a month for the first year. I am into my second year and have lost over 50 pounds. My maintenance weight goal of 220 pound should be obtainable by the end of this year. I have decreased my mile time from twelve minutes to 7:16 and hope to break the 7:00 minute barrier sometime this year. I am out of the XXX Large clothing and can fit into a XL. I feel better, eat better, and sleep better.
Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
Gina: Definitely give it a try, you won’t regret it. Follow the program and you will see results. You will get out of it what you put into it.
Bob: This program will work for anyone at any fitness level. The workouts are geared to work at your own pace and are never the same. The GYIS program works great for couples as fitness and dieting goals are in line and this makes for a happier home.
