The certified trainers at Elite Fitness know that the best motivation is seeing results. When rating their clients’ progress, they transcend mere measuring tapes and scales; they also use the FitRanx fitness rating system, which allows clients to rank themselves against others in their community. With every sweaty pull-up and jumping jack, clients watch themselves move up the ranks within their age group, gaining momentum as they increasingly grow stronger, leaner, and more confident.
A staff of bariatric doctors helps the pounds fall of their clients’ frames with custom weight-loss programs. They teach their patients how to create a healthy diet with food easily obtained at a local grocery store, while out at a restaurant, or at a vacationing neighbor’s house. As medical professionals, the team also expertly recommends any accompanying prescription diet medications that may help individuals safely attain their weight-loss goals.
Nutrition coach Lori Haddle is very aware of how uncomfortable someone who is overweight can feel. As a child, she battled with body-image issues and struggled with her weight for years.
She made the decision to improve her life after having her first child, but it wasn't until 10 years later—when she started working with a health coach—that she finally figured out how her body responded to certain foods and diets. From that moment on, everything changed. She was able to make informed, guided decisions about health and nutrition, and was ultimately able to drop the weight, boost her energy, and even stop taking her cholesterol and acid-reflux medications.
To help others make the same changes that she did, Lori became a health and lifestyle coach. She follows the principles of bio-individuality—which teach that no one diet works for everyone—and she creates personal wellness plans that are as individually tailored as a tattoo listing the names of all your former teachers. Lori offers a variety of services for families, teens, and adults.

Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by inserting plant-based hormone pellets under the skin.
