Success Story- Chris B.

I first met Chris about almost a year ago, in May of 2015.  A month or two into our training together, we were talking about what she did for her workouts on her day off.  The answer was “nothing”.  She was starting to do some jogging on the treadmill before our sessions and she seemed to like it, so I asked if she would ever consider doing a 5k run.  The thought of that scared

Just try!

It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you just TRY. A couple weeks ago I had had a crazy busy exhausting week at work (and it was only Wednesday).  I had low expectations for my standing climbing date that night but I wasn’t going to bail on my belay buddy. But somehow I seem to have some of the best workouts when I’m exhausted. Exhibit A- that night I started climbing routes a whole grade

Success story- Diane P.

I have always enjoyed walking, bowling, playing softball when younger, dancing, and exercising.  I belonged to many different fitness clubs and organizations over the years including Elaine Powers, Dance Slimnastics, Jazzercise, Olympic Fitness, Curves, and Zumba.  I was a Curves member for several years when the centers in both Port Washington and Cedarburg closed.  Needing another club to join, I checked out Anytime Fitness in October 2012.  I remember meeting with Katie and being so

Success Story- Marielle H.

Why did you join Anytime Fitness? Honestly, I first joined because it is right across the street from where I work. (which meant I had no excuse not to go) I am so glad I did, because the environment and the trainers have really made it one of the best experiences I have had at a gym! What positive results have you seen from your workout so far? Not only have I lost weight (a

Success at last! I joined Anytime Fitness about a year ago. I have always been involved in some type of gym membership throughout my life. I always felt I was doing the best I could with my workouts which consisted of hours on the treadmill, elliptical or bike. I did throw in some of the weight machines  as well however never progressed to my goal of weight loss. When I started at Anytime Fitness, I

Success Story- Erika P.

When I started at Anytime Fitness, I was a size 16 and just over 200 pounds.  Working out on my own and eating what I thought was a good plan did give me initial results, but then I plateaued.  I knew if I wanted to see real results, I needed some help.  After working with Jessica Helmlinger, I’ve noticed such a change.  I’ve lost another few sizes, am developing great muscle tone and am now

Advocare 24 Day Challenge results: body weight vs. body composition

I am just finishing my third round of the Advocare 24 day challenge, and I am excited to report great results! Each time that I have done the 24 day challenge, I have experienced significant improvements in fitness and wellness. After my first round, I experienced a notable increase in my fitness as I was getting into peak bike racing season last summer.  I felt stronger and more fit on my bike than I had in a

Exercise vs. training and why you need a personal trainer

With 2014 here, many people are thinking of New Years goals and resolutions.  About a month ago, some fellow trainers and I started discussing the difference between training and exercising.  Many people don’t realize the difference, and with the influx of people starting to exercise again after the Holidays, I’d like to expand on the topic. Are you exercising or training? Exercise is the act of deliberate physical exertion with short term intentions. This category covers a
