Stories of Success
It was a difficult decision for me to leave my old gym, but you have made me feel so welcomed and valued that I can’t imagine training anywhere else. It is your personal touches that makes Tuff Girls so great. Mike and Karin are equally welcoming and create a true family atmosphere no matter when I train. Your workouts are awesome. I love the variety within each workout. Thank you again for being you.
These classes have truly become my therapy and my relief from life when it gets hard. The past year has not only taught me that I am strong physically, but I am even stronger mentally. I have the power to push for what I want and for what is right. I will not be beaten! So thank you. Thank you for pushing me and for reminding me of what I am capable of. It means so much!
Christa, you are utterly honest and real, and it’s very remarkable. When I see you approach me during training (after I think, Oh God), I know I will be able to do what you instruct me to, and will do it well. Thank you for your training, there is no doubt I am getting much more than my money’s worth. So then though you hear it often, please recognize that our thank you’s are as heartfelt and honest as the look in your eye; it’s what we have to give.
I just want to send a quick note to let you know what a difference this past month has made in my life! I love working out now and look forward to it every week. I feel so much more confident about myself and my abilities. I know it’s only been a month but I’m already seeing changes both mentally and physically. Thank you so much for all you do! I’m truly inspired by you and everyone at Tuff Girl Fitness.
Thank you for your strength and encouragement. I’ve loved every minute of training with you guys.You promote an image of strength and beauty that we all can embrace, and it’s way more stunning than anything Hollywood (or our mainstream media, for that matter) could produce.
Thanks for always pushing me, you’re truly amazing and an inspiration! Coming to your classes have made such a difference in my attitude, body and how I work out. You make me want to push myself and work my hardest. For that I am so thankful and grateful!
I just wanted to thank you again for being such an awesome coach. You guys have helped me get to a place I NEVER EVER thought I could be. You have brought out a side of myself I never knew existed. I love being in the gym, I feel comfortable being in the gym. And you guys got me there through your coaching and your awesome support. I can ask questions, even stupid little questions, and you guys always answer them. Or, if I need help with something during the middle of a work out, I can just yell out your name and you’ll come running! Never with an annoyed stare or like you are being inconvenienced. Instead, you come running with all of your support and willingness to do whatever it is I need. So, thank you. Thank you, thank you. I cannot say it enough. You guys are an inspiration, role models, and friends. I cannot wait to continue on my journey with you all!
I never in a million years would have thought I could be as fit as I am, seriously, I was crying doing burpees because I remember trying to do them in my first class and doubting that I would ever be good enough to do multiple burpees in one go. I wasn’t crying because I didn’t want to do it, or because they were hard (which they were) but because I DID them and could have kept doing them and how could I have doubted I would get to this place…and it feels great!
I am in such a better place because of you and your amazing gym. Even though I am not at my goals (yet) I feel like I am in a better place in my life than I’ve ever been. I enjoy the exercise, I enjoy the coaching and protection we get from you, I love the sisterhood and friendships, I love how you encourage us to go beyond what our mind says we cant or won’t. I just keep getting better and better because of you. Where else can you get this type of genuine support and care from a coach? I have never found it until now. You’ve made it possible for me to believe again that I am not locked in a body I have hated for so long!
Training with you and all of these amazing ladies has certainly taught me that STRONG is what I ALWAYS want to be. And I want EVERYONE to know it. Yes, losing weight helped me not worry *so* much about what people thought, but YOU and Bodyology have shown me that the ONLY way to go through life is STRONG and POWERFUL. At ANY size, and ANY stage in life, and in ALL things. I am always a work in progress. But I’ll get there. Not to sound weird, but I really love you and what you have given me is a gift I can never re-pay.
You are an inspiration, fabulous mentor, and beautiful woman. I am blessed to have found you, and the Tuff Girl community to help me discover the strength I have within. For the first time today, after 15 years of disgust, tears, hatred, and pain, I began to love my body. Thank you for everything you do.
In the year I have been training with you, everything about Tuff Girl Fitness has changed me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unyielding support. Thank you for choosing this path. Thank you for sharing your amazing with all of us. I am excited to see what I will be able to do after another year.
I wanted to say thank you. You have put together a kick ass program that I really enjoy even when I feel like I’ve been wrung out like a towel. Thank you for your dedication and support.
Not only are you and Karin and Mike amazing coaches, you have fostered an incredible environment of teamwork at Tuff Girl the likes of which I’ve never before experienced. Every class, there have been women, further along on this journey than I am, who have rooted for me and given me the extra push I’ve needed to hold a plank just a few seconds longer or do one more mountain climber. It became clear that this was a fitness regimen I could stick with. You have an incredible impact on my self esteem and I will never forget the day Christa got me to do a pull up for the first time. Yes, I needed help (that’s a lot of weight to get up above that bar!), but assisted or not, it was something I thought it would be months and months before I would do. I left crying tears of joy that morning.
I feel so much better, more relaxed, more confident, and stronger since I started in July. I’m down two pants sizes (my original goal..guess its time to dream bigger), and can run up and down the stairs at school without getting winded. So thank you all so much for changing yet another woman’s life. I had really gotten to a point where I was paralyzed by fear and hopelessness and that’s been largely turned around, thanks to you all of you! I’m so grateful for this experience everyday. I have so much further to go on my journey, but I know I’m on the right path. You all truly transform not just women’s bodies, but our minds and hearts, as well.
Thank you so very, very much for all you do every day.
Thank you for believing in me and, more importantly, helping me believe in myself.
I don’t have words to express how much your guidance, wisdom, knowledge, support and love has changed my life. You may never understand what a broken woman I was when I entered your gym a couple years ago, but I remember. My entire life is different now. I’m a better version of me in so many ways…better mom, better friend, better person. Thank you. You guys have created something beautiful there, and I’m so honored to be a part of it.
What are you capable of?
