In Megan’s words:

I first joined Elevate fitness in 2007 when my parents told me they were concerned about my health.  Having gone from being a competitive horseback rider in college to a lazy office worker my weight gain was starting to show.  I wasn’t overweight but was quickly approaching what is considered overweight for my height.  In addition to my gym membership at Elevate, I signed up for personal training sessions.  My personal training sessions with Raelynn helped me learn how to properly use the equipment. She also helped me devise a plan to lose the weight I had gained.  We kicked my workouts into high gear prior to my wedding in 2012 and I looked fabulous (at the low end of the scale for my height and fit!) on my wedding day.  Due to a change in circumstances, I canceled my membership in 2013.  

When an injury sidelined me in late 2016, I was again inactive and watched the scale climb to a weight I had never seen before.  After being cleared to workout in early 2017, I reached out to Raelynn again because I had seen videos of her workouts on the Pilates Reformer and I wanted in on those workouts.  I came back to Elevate as a personal training client and have lost all the weight I had gained following my injury. It hasn’t been easy!  There’s been ups and downs and setbacks, but I’ve been encouraged and supported by Raelynn the entire time.  Raelynn asks me what I want to focus on prior to our workouts and then tailors them to fit my needs.  Workouts on the Pilates Reformer have greatly improved my flexibility, posture, and strength.  Even the smallest movements have a big impact.  I’m now in the best shape of my life, am the strongest I have ever been, and I feel great!

Although I’ve worked out at other local gyms, I feel at home here at Elevate.  The staff is welcoming and helpful and the members are friendly and courteous.  There’s no place I would rather be as I continue my fitness journey.      

Whether you’re looking to lose weight, tone up, or increase your athletic conditioning, the personal trainers at Elevate Fitness are ready to help you reach your fitness goals.
