Q&A with Amy Leon, Co-owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We want our members to feel like they're part of a community and never like they're in this on their own. To that end, we encourage students to go at their own pace and continually offer positive reinforcement throughout the workouts to reduce any intimidation.
What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?
We just had one client report that she has lost 17 pounds in the last 10 weeks—but more importantly she lost 10 pounds of pure fat and gained muscle in the process. Another client has lost more than 20 pounds in four months. When she first came in, she couldn't run around the gym. But now she's completing one-hour classes and taking on every challenge she's given.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
The biggest mistake is the negative self-talk and self-sabotage; so they give up on themselves too quickly. Or they don't push themselves out of their comfort zone. We do encourage members to go at their own pace while taking on challenges as often as possible, so they see the change and growth happening.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Getting into shape is such a personal and emotional journey for many people, and we really respect that notion when people come to our gym. We want them to know that we really appreciate that they want us to help them in some way and we truly take that to heart with every member.
