We believe in the power of fitness to truly change lives. It’s why we do what we do – because time and again one small decision leads to new chapters you’d have never thought possible. Here are a few of the members and team members whose stories keep us inspired every day.

Fighting Her Fight

Isabel Orejel has faced two terminal cancer diagnoses and COVID-19, but she hasn’t let that define or control her. “Commit to yourself and know that you can achieve your goals no matter what obstacles are thrown your way.”

A Birthday to Build From

Julian Salazar made himself a promise: to use the year to turn his fitness around. With work and school shut down, he began training virtually, then at his club when it reopened. “When I watch my past self, it’s humbling but exciting … It makes me far more excited for what I can do next.”

Dancing with Doubt

When foot and ankle surgery stopped Elaine Hayden from dancing, she fell into a cycle of self-doubt. But with the help of her fitness coach Lorenzo, she has re-learned to trust in her body and goals. “He pushed me beyond what I could have imagined possible for myself, and it made all the difference.”

A Recommitment to Self

Adam Schneider was reluctant to face the work it would take to turn his life around, but a steady regimen and dependable support network helped him follow his own advice: “Don’t be a victim of your past, be a vision of your future.”

From Health to Happiness

Ian Kurihara had straightforward goals: lose weight and increase his comfort level in the gym. But he soon discovered other benefits. “Venting to my trainer is a little like therapy … just the physical act of pouring my frustrations and unfocused energy into something productive is rewarding.”
