Hours of Operation
I started my weight loss journey April 2018. I knew my life had to change dramatically as I was finding it difficult to do everyday tasks like walking, stairs and enjoying time with friends and family. A friend asked me to join Weight Watchers with her and I did. When I first got on the scale I was embarrassed not only by the numbers but that my weight was what doctors would classify as obese. I took to the program quickly as it was easy to follow and did not require you to starve yourself to see results. Flash forward to October 2018… I was 30 pounds down! I was so proud of myself, however, I’d hit a plateau. I knew fitness was my next step. I checked out all the local gyms but as soon as I walked through the doors of NRG 4 Life Fitness, I knew it was the one for me. The staff and trainers have quickly become family. Everyone knew my name by the second day! I joined NRG mid October and have lost another 15 pounds (as of Dec 29) Total loss of 45 pounds!! NRG has the BEST classes. There’s so much variety that it ensures I work all the muscles in my body. The trainers and members are kind and do not judge. No matter what level you are, everyone encourages and literally cheers you on!
I still have a long journey ahead of me, however, I’m happy to be on it and I know that my NRG fam will help me stay on course!Jenn F.
If you want to improve yourself all you have to do is start.
I started with 20 minutes of walking once a week, gradual small changes led me to a better diet, a structured exercise plan and now I’ve lost 80lbs.

My journey towards a healthier lifestyle started on December 27th 2017. Although I previously ran half marathons and enjoyed the benefits associated with healthy eating, I fell of track. I was looking after everyone else except myself. With years of shift work, caring for aging parents and an active social calendar my weight had crept up to 215 pounds. As a nurse, I knew my BMI was in the obese category on my 5”4 frame. I was becoming short of breath and was suffering from terrible heartburn. I was miserable! I knew it was only time before I would be on medication for diabetes, high cholesterol and elevated blood pressure. I’ll be 50 in August and decided that enough was enough. We are given only one body and need to take care of it. It was an epiphany. Time to get serious! Now that I’m 40 lbs lighter, I know I have the tools and determination to trim down another 20 lbs. I thank the constant encouragement from my “NRG Family” for keeping me motivated to. The Amazing Race Members Motivation program is a great example of this.
I recommitted to working out more diligently and decided to start by introducing lean proteins, fresh fruit and vegetables into my diet. I avoid (bad) fats and stay away from food with little nutritional value. I have a real passion for food so spend time creating delicious recipes using herbs and spices. Being prepared is key! It’s so easy to grab food that has little value when not prepared. I spend a lot more time shopping and chopping! It’s worth it.
NRG 4 Life, Sarah and Terry have provided our community with the most incredible venue to help us achieve our goals. Terry’s warmth and smile, even at 5:30 a.m. make NRG a pleasant place to go. Sarah always has nutritional tips and enjoys sharing recipes. She is devoted to her clients and is certainly an inspiration to all. I must add that Sarah and Terry employed our daughter at NRG. She learned so much and enjoys the benefits of exercise and healthy diet due to their positive influence. I am forever grateful.
I thoroughly enjoy the spin classes that are offered throughout the day and evening. Each instructor offers a different style with various type of music I enjoy them all. Brenda, Marlene and Dean are so motivating! Neil and Taya, I can’t thank you enough for your support and motivation. My goal is to continue on this plan, attend more classes and enjoy the benefits associated with physical fitness and health!
