Vicki gave up a lot of years to take care of her family and now it's time for her to take care of herself. Check out the video here to see how she's been able to stop feeling sorry for herself and gain confidence.
I just had my 6-month checkup. Again for the second time in a row my A1C is even lower below six and my cholesterol is 145 which is down as well I've lost 8 lb and my blood pressure is lower also. My doctor asked me how I did all this in a year. I told her it was the people at Fabulous Fitness!
I came to FabYoulous because of Kim's corrective exercise training. I had repeated problems with plantar fasciitis, bunion pain, knee tenderness, which led me to slow down or stop any exercise I was currently doing. Kim started with foam rolling and with in 2 sessions I noticed a difference! I wanted to have some kind of training that I would be able to continue if I did have some injury, so looked into small group training. I had been going to big gyms and community exercise programs for many years and always felt like I didn't progress and the "trainers" that were there just to teach one level. And that level was never ME. I really enjoy and appreciate the level of interest Fab has in all of their clients. My main reason for continuing past the corrective exercise was to be more flexible, have better balance and not have ridiculous pains that came out of nowhere My balance is sooo much better and I can get up off the floor after playing with toddlers now.
It has been 5 months since I joined. My specific goals were to improve my energy level, to improve my general fitness and to lose weight. So far, I have noticed a great increase in my energy level and my random aches and pains have completely disappeared. As yet I have not lost any weight but I have noticed a change in the shape of my body. I can see that my thighs and back side are more toned and a lot less jiggly. I have also noticed that my waist is starting to return. I am hoping that the lack of weight loss so far is an indicator that I was actually turning fat into heavier muscle. The next goal is to lose some of the excess weight around my middle. There have been non visual improvements also. My stress level has decreased immensely even though this year I have had to take on being the primary caregiver for my brother with Alzheimer's who is 15 years older than me and whom I have not seen in over 5 years. The take away for me is, that feeling fit and strong is about so much more than looking thin.
I got in my car the other day and when I put my head back against the seat I noticed that my ponytail was too tight and it hurt. Then I paused for a moment as I realized that nothing else hurt! Nothing on my body hurt except my ponytail being too tight! This is the first time in YEARS that I can say this!
Joanna was overwhelmed by taking care of an adult daughter with disabilities and both of her parents having Alzheimer’s. She decided to give strength training a try to help her gain strength to be able to take care of the people she loves in her life. Check out the video below to see how it turned out.
I have been holding off reviewing this place for months now for my own selfish reasons. It’s so good I didn’t want to share it! Kim and Sherri are amazing trainers and do not make you feel like you’re working out. If you hate working out, this is your place! If you love working out, you’ll love it even more. Jessica is my favorite yoga instructor, ever! She helps you do what’s right for your body and doesn’t make you feel bad about yourself if you don’t get where you want, right away. The other women I’ve met in my classes and in training are all encouraging and positive. It’s amazing to workout in a space with all women. We’re all encouraging of each other. They’ve taught me to love my body for what it can do! You need fabYOUlous fitness.
Working with Kim has been an amazing experience for both mind and body! I sought out Kim’s expertise with heart rate training to help me meet my running goals safely and efficiently. Kim is so personable—warm, engaging, and invested. When you work with Kim, you know she is in your corner cheering you on as well as gently challenging you when you need it and holding you accountable because she truly wants to see her clients succeed on every front, not just physically. She is authentic, which makes working with her so much easier to face your own barriers because there is no shame—only support. While I met my running goal, I can honestly say that it became more than just about running—she really helped me view myself differently and to see both the big and little wins, which I needed. I’m so grateful to have her—highly recommend!
Mary had back surgery, didn’t have good balance or any leg strength, and couldn’t get up and down off the floor before starting with us. Find out how Mary got her groove back.
I love the variety of group classes offered, the instructors, and the women that attend each class. The instructors are very knowledgeable and are fantastic with providing positive feedback to their students who are in different fitness levels. Overall, FabYOUlous fitness keeps you on track to want to continue on with your healthy personal fitness journey.
Kim designs great workouts that are appropriate for every fitness level. This is a fun, no judgement zone where you’re always encouraged to become the best version of yourself!
This is a great studio. All the trainers have their own way of training and I get something extra when I take a session with a trainer that isn't my usual group leader. I've never felt stupid or embarrassed to admit I can't keep up or don't know what the h#$% I am supposed to be doing!! Advice? Don't wait anymore. DO IT!!!!!"
I am so very grateful that I found all of you! You fill my cup overflowing with happiness.
Stephanie was working out at a big box gym and was struggling to achieve the results she wanted without personalized attention. Watch the video below to see how she changed her life.
I have been enjoying working with Kim so much! And all the women I have had the pleasure to workout with so far have been lovely. Such a body positive space as well. Definitely recommend
A safe and welcoming, woman only fitness studio!
Anne knew she should be strength training but needed someone to show her how and what to do. Adding strength training twice a week has been a game changer for Anne. Watch the video below to hear more.
Adding strength training has been a real game changer for me. I’ve been amazed at the changes I’ve seen all while having fun with other women working towards their goals.
Kim knows how to relate to the client. She readjusts the workout according to my weaknesses & what I want. She will keep you moving when resting certain muscles, which makes a more effective workout. She’s very knowledgeable which is what I need. I have had bilateral knee replacements, bilateral rotator cuff surgeries & a recent hip replacement. She has shown me a better way to exercise so that I can continue to move.
Sara felt like she wasn’t comfortable in her body. She struggled with strength and stamina to do just everyday things and that made her feel ashamed. Watch the video below to see how Sara changed her life.
Well, I have to say finding the right exercise program for oneself can be hard, VERY hard. Going it alone never worked for me. Even group classes ( exercise, yoga, water aerobics) at the community center--meh. One and done. For years. But this. This place. Weight training with these awesome instructors and classmates-- holy cow! Heaven sent! I remember when I left my first meeting with Kim last summer, I texted Anna-- if I can't stick with this I'm a lost cause. Ha! Here I am one year later. Yay, me!
