"I am down 30 lbs ..."
“About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroid Disease which so far has required only monitoring, no medications. The side effect to this was hormones bouncing around, throwing off my metabolism and causing me to gain weight.
Most people assume weight gain is due to overeating which is not true at all. My weight gain was actually due to not eating enough food as I was left with no appetite which put my body into crash mode.
Being someone who has never dealt with weight issues even after having two kids, this took a major toll on my confidence and daily life. About 2 1/2 years ago I decided something needed to change. My original goal was just eat better to feel better but after eating better for 6 months I knew I needed and wanted something more.
This is what lead me to Empowered Fitbody. Fast forward 2 more years. I am down 30 lbs. and stronger than I ever would’ve become on my own. This program has continued to push and support me along the way. I was never someone to step out of my comfort zone and try something new, but there was nothing uncomfortable about the ‘FitFam’ I was instantly welcomed in to. I am truly grateful to have found such an amazing group of people to be on this journey with.”
"... I have gone from a size 11 to a size 4!!"
“When I first set out on this journey I wanted to lose weight, get stronger and feel better. I started to celebrate little victories like drinking a gallon of water a day, lifting a heavier weight, eating a nutritious meal or not having any alcohol – to name a few.
Then, somewhere along the way as I started to see results month after month, my mindset transformed and I became even more motivated and more committed. I wanted (and still want to) see how far I can go, see what milestones I can break and experience the ways my body will reward me for consistently staying on track and treating it well.
I have come to truly love this lifestyle and doing whatever it takes to achieve my goals isn’t hard work anymore—it’s habit. I make meals and snacks that I love and enjoy more than the bad-for-me ones. Proper nutrition, routinely getting to the gym several times a week and being committed to achieving my goals has resulted in me going from a size 11/12 to a size 3/4!!
Being a mom and owning my own business demands quite a bit of my time but I have learned that investing in myself and being healthy is the most important thing I can do. There is a built-in support system at Empowered Fitbody that is second to none … I am very grateful for that and humbled by this experience.”
"I've lost fat and gained lean muscle ..."
“This program has changed my life and opened the doors for me to create a sustainable, enjoyable, healthy and fit lifestyle! The community of people at EF are so encouraging and supportive; the trainers are extremely knowledgeable and provide challenging and effective routines as well as meal plans specifically for me.
I am now armed with the knowledge of how to live this lifestyle and not feel like I have to “diet” to see results. I’ve lost fat and gained lean muscle. I am so glad I stepped outside of my comfort zone and made the choice to join this team ... I am forever grateful for my FitFam and the transformation I have experienced thus far.”
"I have been a part of the FitFam at Empowered Fitbody for just over a year, and I can't believe what a difference a year makes. I am down 40 pounds, wearing a size I haven't worn since high school, and most importantly, I now feel healthy, strong, and more confident than ever!
The trainers at Empowered Fitbody are amazing and have been there for me every step of the way. They not only hold you accountable, but have a way of making you hold yourself accountable too. I've followed a meal plan tailored to my needs and goals, received coaching on proper form during workouts, and gotten tons of sweaty high fives and encouragement from others during group sessions. I am in awe of what my body is capable of now doing.
My only regret is that I didn't start on this journey sooner, but I'm excited to see what's ahead- this is only the beginning!"
"I am down 40 lbs ..."
"I have gained self confidence ... "
"I've been with Empowered Fitbody for about 2 years and going strong. Going in, I was going though a very hard time in my life but, I did not want that to define me or my future so I said ENOUGH.
As a single mother, I refused to let any obstacles stand in my way. While at Empowered Fitbody, I have managed to juggle 2 jobs, finish my degree (and back at it), set a great example for my son (who occasionally comes into classes with me and is my BIGGEST supporter). And, I STILL made sure to schedule time to come in for classes that are very flexible and easy to work with.
I am so thankful for all of the love and support that Empowered Fitbody has given me. I have gained self confidence, self discipline, knowledge about nutrition and health, as well as never giving up on yourself. I not only gained my life back, but I gained an entire family where we are supportive of each other and our journeys together. I am extremely proud and grateful about being apart of this great community, and humble on how far I've come and the work I've put in. IF I CAN DO IT ... SO CAN YOU!"
"... my self confidence has grown while my waist line has shrunk!"
"I started at Empowered Fitbody in 2015 after seeing a friend of mine have great results with Empowered Fitbody. I immediately fell in love with the training sessions and the atmosphere. Each training session is designed to target a specific muscle group. Liz and the other trainers are extremely knowledgeable and motivating.
I was also given a meal plan designed for me and my lifestyle ... I work full time and the support I had from everyone is amazing. We are all excited to cheer and celebrate each other's successes along the way. In my time at Empowered Fitbody my self confidence has grown while my waist line has shrunk!"
"I have lost way more pounds and inches ..."
"I started my journey to a healthier lifestyle over 2 yrs ago. I was going to the gym spending countless hours there, I did a range of different exercise programs including CrossFit, but I never saw lasting results.
Joining Empowered Fitbody is the best thing that has happened to me. I have lost way more pounds and inches than I thought I could achieve on my own. In the process, I have gained confidence, strength and a new family of friends that have also contributed to my success.
I was given a meal plan tailored just for me, and exercise routine that works my whole body. I have built tons of lean muscle and I am always held accountable with my meals and training. I could not have done it without the professional help from the Empowered Fitbody team which has, in a way, become my second home."
"I have lost 20 lbs and I'm down to a size 1/2 ..."
"I had been going back and forth about joining a gym but I had always talked myself out of it because it never worked before and I couldn’t stay committed. I didn’t know what I was doing or know about proper nutrition. I tried searching for gyms in Watertown, but nothing came up that reflected a gym I could stay committed to.
I talked to Liz, at Empowered Fitbody, and she invited me for a consultation. I was able to try a few classes and, although I didn’t love it right away because I was so out of shape, I was reassured that it will get better each week - that each week would get easier with a can-do attitude.
The trainers at Empowered Fitbody have been extremely encouraging. I started believing in myself and every week I saw improvements which kept me motivated. I was set up with a customized meal plan and once I started that, everything came together. I can’t believe how strong and how far I’ve come mentally and physically. There is a ton of support at Empowered Fitbody; someone is always available for any questions you may have and they are extremely knowledgeable. The program keeps me accountable and also keeps me on track. I’ve lost 20 lbs and I’m down to a size 1/2. I’m looking forward to this continued journey and can’t wait to see how my body progresses."
"I've learned how to adopt a healthy lifestyle ..."
At 35-years old with three kids, I started to realize that I need to lose some weight and change the way I was eating. I knew what I wanted, but I was confused on where to start and how to reach my fitness goals.
I needed a little motivation and after doing some research, I found Empowered Fitbody and have had great support in the progress that I have accomplished in the past few months. I'm not only feeling more energized, but I'm also happy with the results. My body looks leaner and I have more confidence in myself. I have not only lost weight but most important I have also gained so much knowledge on how the body functions, how to eat for my body type and how to adopt a healthy lifestyle without starving myself all while enjoying the foods that I love.
I'm feeling healthier not only physically but mentally as well. I'm so glad I made the decision to enjoy Empower Fitbody.
