01When did you start your fitness journey?

I started in February of 2018

 

02What motivated you to start?

I had just moved back home to Houston from Dallas and I was ready to make a change and start living life again.

03What were your goals when you initially started?

I wanted to lose weight but was intimidated by how much I needed to lose. So at first my goals were to just stick to a better diet and fitness routine. As I saw the weight falling off I started to set 4 week weight loss goals for myself and started pushing myself harder in my workouts.

04 How are your goals different now?

Yes, before I just wanted to lose weight. Now that the weight is gone I’m focused on building my endurance so I can run longer and pushing myself more with weights so I can be stronger.

 

 

05What results have you seen since being part of the Empower Community?

Since starting Empower I have seen the best results from a workout that I’ve ever seen before. I’m stronger, leaner, and my running has changed completely. I started off walking most of the tred and now I’m running the full time and faster than I ever have before. My body continues to tone in every area and my self-esteem has done a 180!

06What did you struggle with the most when you started ?

My biggest struggle was finding a workout that worked for me. I have tried everything from Pilates/Yoga to boot camps and even Orange Theory but I would always get bored and quit. From the day I started at Empower that has never been an issue. I’ve never done the same workout twice so I’ve never gotten bored! Definitely do not have the same issues I had when I first started.

07How does working out at Empower Fitness Lab effect your daily life?

Yes, my whole life has changed! I wake up with way more energy these days. I’m not nearly as lazy as I used to be. Even doing simple household chores is easier. I try and find new and fun activities with friends and family when on vacation, which I used to never do before.

08What advice would you give to new and current members?

Set workout goals for yourself. Whether its running a 5k or simply making it to two workout classes a week, it really helps motivate you. You feel a great sense of accomplishment when you meet those goals and it makes you want to set newer more challenging goals in the future.

 

09Has any one at Empower made an impact towards your goals? If so, who?

Absolutely everyone! From the second I stepped foot in Empower I felt so welcome. Sometimes going to a new gym can be really intimidating. Everyone at the front desk is so friendly and they all make an effort to get to know you. The trainers are so helpful. They push me harder than I would push myself but would also adjust workouts for me when I needed it. My technique with weights and boxing has completely changed for the better. You can tell everyone really cares and wants to see you succeed.  

10What has been your overall experience been like with Empower?

Empower changed my life. I now have a gym that I can call my own and I would never leave. I can’t thank Empower enough for helping me stick to my goals, but most importantly pushing me to new fitness levels. I wouldn’t change a thing about Empower, it really is the best workout I’ve ever done with the greatest people!

01When did you start your fitness journey?

I started April 1, 2019

 

 

 

 

02What motivated you to start?

When we relocated to Houston for work in October 2018, we were distracted with new jobs, a new home, and a new town full of new restaurants and things to do. At our previous home, we worked out at least 5 days a week since my wife, Jennifer was a Les Mills Instructor. While enjoying our new home, we lost our motivation and quickly gained weight and started feeling horrible. With both of us ready for change, we found Empower and got to work!

03What were your goals when you initially started?

Overall better health, losing 30-25 pounds, and getting back to our routine of 5-6 days a week in the gym.

 

04 How are your goals different now?

WellI am down about 25 pounds and definitely feel better. We average 5 classes a week and feel as we have found "our" gym at Empower!  I think the variety in each class makes it easy to get motivated and the trainers are really good!

 

05What results have you seen since being part of the Empower Community?

I feel much stronger and my cardio is as good as it has ever been. I am also learning to enjoy the Cycle and Yoga classes. Another great reason we are at Empower!

06What did you struggle with the most when you started ?

My biggest struggle was getting up at 4 AM to get to the gym and staying on the really strict diet we are following.  Now we are so excited to get to the gym that getting up is easier, and our food program has advanced and become easier to manage. We have definitely made some life changes.

07How does working out at Empower Fitness Lab effect your daily life?

YES! I feel so motivated to start my day after a class. I feel much more alert, and being in better shape has always allowed me to get the most of my busy days.

08What advice would you give to new and current members?

You have joined the best gym in town. Use the facilities and try everything. The trainer are some of the most motivating people I have ever been around, and your fitness level does not matter as long as you give 100% and "leave it all on the floor!

 

09Has any one at Empower made an impact towards your goals? If so, who?

Khang for sure, along with Brandon and Corey who always make sure your form is correct (I really like that!). Also, Tayo, Bianca, and Alicia. 

10What has been your overall experience been like with Empower?

I feel like every class is incredible, HIIT, Cycle and Yoga. The trainers are amazing, and the personal service makes it feel like you have the trainer one on one, even though you are in a group class setting. It is honestly the best choice I have made since moving to Houston.
