Welcome to our Mind Body Fuel small group training sessions.
Mind Body Fuel describes this sessions perfectly. Here's why:
How many times have you set a weight loss goal and then went head strong into the weight loss journey only to find yourself getting overwhelmed and frustrated a few weeks in? Or maybe you try to eat healthy and make the right choices for yourself, but your family is not on the same page as you and you find yourself struggling with proper food choices? Then there is the kid factor. How many of you have kids that are on the go from the moment they step out of the bed until 9pm every night? Eating on the go is the easiest option for you while trying to maintain some type of sanity in your on the go life.
What if I told you that you are not alone? What if I told you that you could still have success in your weight loss journey as long as you maintain patience and focus throughout the journey?
Many of our Mind Body Fuel participants have been here for an extended time period. They have seen many successes in their overall journey. But they have also had some stumbles in their journey. And with any journey you should expect/anticipate some stumbles. After all, you are human and you will have moments. But it's how you handle and overcome those stumbles that truly define you and the journey you are on.
"My journey at ITS started about 2 years ago. And i wouldn't trade it for the world. I've lost 15 pounds and went down two pant sizes. I have struggled with emotional/stress eating for a long time. So I had a really tough time starting out. Attending boot camp has helped me channel my emotions differently and drink more water. The more I challenged myself and thought about the dress in my closet I love but can't fit into the journey became about me. My biggest motivation for starting this journey was my mom. She's always pushed me to be the best me no matter what it was I wanted to accomplish. Now it's the satisfaction of breaking my PRs and truly doing it for myself. If your just starting out, have an outstanding injury that is holding you back or are trying to evolve your workout routine, I recommend Boot Camp at ITS!"

"It's been about 3 years since I started boot camp at ITS. Of my many successes, I am most proud of my pull-ups and chin-ups. They are still a work in progress, but I am proud of how far I have come. I am now able to squat up to 115# repetitively, independent on tire flips and bench press with 25# kettlebells. My biggest motivation is the physical strength I have gained through this journey. And I am not done yet! Along with my successes are some struggles like waking up at 5am to get to class by 5:30am. I also struggle at decreasing my sugar intake...it has been a constant battle and I am always working at it. My reason to continue to come to boot camp at ITS is because of Anna and her knowledge. She constantly changes up my workouts to meet my goals of increasing my overall strength and decreasing my fat especially in my "trouble" spots. She also helps guide me on recovery for sore muscles and/or any injury I may experience from life in or out of the gym."

"My ITS Bootcamp journey began a little over a year ago. The image in my head of myself was always way healthier than the image in the mirror. I committed to ITS Bootcamp to help align the two. As a full-time employed mom of three, I had very little time for myself and needed to make myself a priority with no more excuses. I embraced the idea that waking up at 4:30am for the 5:30am class (before work) was the only time that was mine. From the moment I walked in the door for my first session, I knew I belonged and found "my thing". Anna and the rest of the ladies are welcoming, supportive and encouraging. I have lost over 50 pounds and countless inches since starting at ITS! The positive shift in mood, increased energy, better sleep and overall improvement in my health are all successes to me. The newfound awareness to pay attention to my mind and body is such a gift. My biggest motivation to continue ITS Bootcamp is to become even stronger and maintain my new whole-body health. One of my favorite things about Anna is that she continuously challenges me (in a safe way) as I progress through my journey. I found me and I love it! If you have been searching for “your thing” or have been terrified to find it, I highly recommend ITS Bootcamp!"

"I have been coming to Bootcamp since November of 2017. Although I love the fact that I have lost pounds and inches, it is what I have gained that I needed the most. I have found the support of an amazing group of people, who make working out fun. Anna doesn’t let us give up (no “can’t” in the gym), and she has a way with words so we know we can do it, even when we are doubting ourselves. The confidence I have found in myself is awesome. I know that I can accomplish the goals I set if I keep pushing. It hasn’t all been easy. My life is busy and full of stress which presents many challenges for weight loss. Some ways I have learned to tackle these issues it to meal prep on the weekends for the week ahead, always drink my water and listen to Anna!"

Not sure how many years Nichole has been coming to ITS…at least two years for sure. She has some significant successes on her journey. She is able to do her rope drills and flip a large tire. Her biggest motivation for coming to class is the ladies she works out with. “Plus Anna always helping me when I do something wrong.” She still has her struggles…and understands this is a journey not a race. She struggles in trying to find the healthy balance of eating right and living life. She has overcome this by having one cheat day. She also has a hard time when someone can do something in the gym (or life) and she is unable too. “I tell myself that we are all in different places in our journey and that’s ok.”
