I’m down over 14 lbs and am feeling GREAT!!
I joined Our Team Fitness 7 months ago because I wanted to feel better and make healthier decisions. My goals were to lose weight, gain more energy to keep up with my grand kids and to just feel better overall. I have a busy schedule and always found it hard to commit to finding time to exercise. Now, with the help of Our Team Fitness, I make time!
I’m down over 14 lbs and am feeling GREAT!! All the coaches push and challenge me beyond what I thought I could ever do. Rickie Lee, Suzanne and the rest my new Fit Family have supported me through every step of my journey! I love Our Team Fitness’ team and individual challenges, they are really fun and help give me extra motivation to get to the gym. I’ve also fallen in love with the meal plans they put out because it gets me into a regimented schedule and I'm not grabbing what easiest to get a hold of to eat. I can’t say enough about how Our Team Fitness has had a positive impact on my life!
Since becoming part of Our Team is to remember you're not alone in your journey
Being an athlete has always been a major part of who I am. However, after freshman year of college I had little to no motivation to work out, and I was the heaviest I have ever been. Then back in December I came to my first class at Our Team Fitness with my mom and I haven't looked back! Each workout has challenged and pushed me. I've seen myself getting stronger, make better choices with my diet, and I can't wait to get to my next workout when I leave!
Our Team Fitness has helped me lose my “freshman fifteen”. One of the main obstacles I faced as a college student was finding the time to make it to the gym and when I did I didn't know what to do when I got there. Our Team Fitness has so many class times to choose from Small group personal training to Large group classes, it's easy for me to find a time/class that works for my schedule AND they have a full body workout waiting for me when I walk through the door.
My family has been my biggest supporter in my health and fitness journey, but what I found was my family got a whole lot bigger after I joined the gym. From the staff to the members, everyone has been so encouraging and supportive. Something I've learned since becoming part of Our Team is to remember you're not alone in your journey.. There are people out there who are willing and want to help you every step of the way.
The staff are very knowledgeable, but you can tell they really enjoy what they are doing.
I’ve been working out with Our Team Fitness now for 16 months and I can’t believe the changes I’ve seen since joining. As I approached my 60th birthday, I realized I had to make some changes in my life and get back into shape. I had joined gyms in the past, done the weight machine circuits, free weights, jumped on a cardio equipment, got bored and left. So, I was stuck, not sure what to do, or where to go. After talking with a friend, they mentioned Our Team Fitness and the impact it was having on their life.
I decided to give their 2 week trial a shot and after my 1st workout I knew this was not your typical gym. The personal attention you get while working in a group is phenomenal. They know your injuries and make modifications specifically for YOU. Not only is the staff very knowledgeable, but you can tell they really enjoy what they are doing. It shows in every class, people are sweating, laughing, and really enjoying themselves.
Since joining my knees are no longer cracking, my back isn’t aching, I’m more flexible, cholesterol is down, AND I can do push ups! Thanks Our Team Fitness, now I look forward to getting up in the morning and going to the gym. Who would of thought!?
I found a place that could help support me, hold me accountable, and kick my butt!!
A year ago, I decided I needed to make a change in my life because I was unhappy with how my overall health was. I always was very active growing up, but after college I wasn’t regularly exercising and I could start to see a decline in my overall health. I wanted to get back in shape, and after I noticed my body changing, not for the better, at only 24 years old I decided to get in shape. I knew it would be hard because we have way too many great places to go out to eat and grab a drink here at the Jersey Shore which I just can’t pass up! I knew I couldn’t just stop altogether, but I knew if I found a place that could help support me, hold me accountable, and kick my butt, I’d still be able enjoy the Jersey Shore.
I found Our Team Fitness and decided to let them try and help me reach my goals. I can’t say enough about the tremendous help and support I’ve gotten so far! When I would go to a regular gym, I never knew what to do, I would stand there with a dumb look on my face saying now what. I never knew if I was doing exercises right or if I was doing what I needed to hit my goals. Now when I come to the gym, Our Team Fitness has my workouts planned for me and the coaches always make sure I’m working out with the right form. All of the coaches are extremely encouraging as well, whether it be getting an email from Rickie Lee about getting in for a workout to make the MVP board or getting pushed to make one more rep, they've helped me see that I’m on a journey and I won’t get there in one day.
After a year at Our Team Fitness, I have lost almost 40 pounds! I am very happy with those results. It wasn’t easy balancing going to work and school full time and trying to get back in shape, but I did it and I’m still not done! I need to give a quick shout out to my number one cheerleader… my MOM! She’s shown me SO much support through this process and I wouldn't have been able to do this without her (If you don’t know my mom, I’m sure you’ll hear her singing or see her dancing in class!).
Watch out 2020, here I come.
I love that I look forward to coming in as often as I can and continue to challenge myself
I joined Our Team Fitness in July of this year. I was always a relatively fit person and enjoyed being active. After a few years of taking care of everyone else and making excuses, I had become the least-fit I had ever been and then I was in an accident. The after math of this greatly restricted my ability to move freely, and also severely affected my balance and strength. After quite a few months of therapy, I was looking to expand on some strength training and get back to feeling better.
Our Team Fitness has been instrumental in encouraging me and helping me discover just the right workouts that fit my abilities, continues to support my rehab, and pushes me to become stronger each week. While my main goal was to become more active, as well as regain strength and build muscle. I also just wanted to be more physically active during the week to keep my energy up and have something to look forward to every day. I wanted to get back into shape and make my physical activity a priority. I wanted to show up for myself!
In the short time I’ve been a member, I have already noticed my endurance has greatly increased, I’ve begun to regain muscle as well as improve my mobility and flexibility. I love that I look forward to coming in as often as I can and continue to challenge myself.
I love the groups and classes I have taken and the really positive atmosphere that is such great motivation to (help me) continue my journey. I honestly feel better than I have in a long time and that is because I have made committing to Our Team Fitness a priority for myself.
The thing that has made me keep getting out of bed at 5-something AM!
I joined Our Team Fitness in March of 2019. I had two things in mind that I wanted to get out of a workout program: One was to move my body and work up a sweat consistently, since I have a 9-6 office job and I felt like I was barely moving throughout the day. The second thing I wanted to accomplish was to get off the diet culture/exercise rollercoaster/yo-yo I had put myself on for all of my adult life. I wanted to work out from a place of self-love, not from a place of punishment because I ate something earlier that I felt guilty about. I wanted to work out consistently because I knew that it would benefit my mental and physical health overall, and because it truly is a privilege to be able to work out and I shouldn’t take my body for granted. I really wanted to shift my mindset about exercise in general, and I am so grateful that Our Team Fitness has given me the ability to do that.
The thing that has made me keep getting out of bed at 5-something AM, is that I know that if I didn’t show up, someone would care. Jon, Rickie Lee, or another coach would surely follow up with me and ask why I didn’t come. Or check in with me via email. Or ask the next time they saw me. The classes are small enough that you notice if one person doesn’t show up. The fact that the Our Team Fitness trainers really do care gives me the accountability that I need to keep showing up in class. As I write this, it has been six whole months of waking up early and getting a good sweat in before work – which is something I could have never, ever imagined myself doing even just a year ago.
Jon and Rickie Lee have really helped me take my goals and break them down into measurable, doable achievements. I got advice on how to keep myself limber at my desk and small things I could do during the day to keep myself moving in the office. The most important thing, though, is that Jon and Rickie Lee both really listen to what I want to get out of my workout experience and they never pushed me to make drastic changes or extreme commitments. I had gained and lost weight using extreme methods in the past, and I was just done with the short-term successes and wanted to really look at the fitness component of my life in a big-picture way. I feel understood and validated by Rickie Lee at our goal-setting sessions, and she has the patience to answer every little question that I have.
When I first joined Our Team Fitness, I was afraid of doing Burn class because I was so out of shape. I couldn’t do any exercises on the sliders at all. I was picking up the lightest weights I could find out of fear that I wouldn’t be able to do more. My attitude has totally changed since then. And so have my measurements – I’ve Iost 10 inches all around so far.
A few months after joining, I felt comfortable asking for more feedback in class and accepting more challenging weights. One of the major catalysts for this attitude change was getting the MyZone® Heart Rate Monitor. I thought I was pushing myself and working hard – but as soon as I strapped the monitor on and started seeing real-time stats, I realized that I could be doing a lot more. I was comfortable at the level I was at before getting the monitor, and I thought I was burning a lot more calories and putting more effort in than I actually was. Now, you can catch me checking the screen during class to make sure that I am truly working hard and really challenging myself. It was a reality check for me and it allowed me to get out of my comfort zone at the gym. I have such a sense of accomplishment after each workout now, knowing that I can see my hard work recorded and hit the MEPs that I want to ensure I leave the gym having put in a good effort.
I love Our Team Fitness. I have never been in a consistent exercise routine this long ever before. Motivation is fleeting – a passing feeling. You’ll always be chasing it. The only true way to make a positive change is consistency and discipline, which I have cultivated at OTF. The level of dedication that the trainers have surpasses any other kind of fitness experience that I have participated in. They are all of our personal cheerleaders, and they make sure that we show up, mentally and physically, at each of our workouts. I am so excited to achieve new things and see how I will grow in the next few months as well. The support that I have from the coaches and the workouts that we do make it easy for me to want to keep coming in time and time again, even if I have to force myself out of bed. After all, it’s what we do day-to-day that shapes who we become. And Our Team Fitness plays a major part, 3 - 4 times a week, in helping me be the absolute best version of myself.
