Lost 7.4 lbs and 2 inches!
“I’ve been a member at Pursuit for just over a year now. I had several surgeries this past winter that left me fairly sedentary and with a few more pounds than I’d like to carry. When this challenge came up, I knew it was perfect for me to jump start some changes to my body and health. With the support of my classmates and trainers at the gym, I have been focusing on setting goals and changing habits.
I’ve really concentrated on eating clean and eliminating mindless snacks between meals. I watched portion sizes, made sure I was eating plenty of protein, and followed the Isagenix 9 Day Cleanse to the letter. I added one group training class per week and ran a few miles over the weekends. I’m thrilled with the changes I have seen and I look forward to continuing what I have started. On the final day of this challenge, I found that not only had I lost pounds AND inches, I finally tested out of that purple band and became a black band ninja!”

“Even though I was the last one in my family to join Pursuit it didn’t take me long to get hooked. At the beginning of the New Year I promised myself I would challenge and push myself outside of my comfort zone. I started fulfilling that promise by doing the New Year Transformation with my mom and sister and was committed to making some permanent changes to my lifestyle. It wasn’t easy, but I proved to myself that I could get through a challenge. With this transition I wanted to see if I could do it by myself and be dedicated to losing some pounds that had overstayed their welcome. I knew adding personal training on top of my 3 group training sessions was going to push me physically, but doing the Isagenix cleanse was going to push me mentally. I honestly don’t know if I could have continued if it wasn’t for the support of my success coach Adam and the other trainers. Their constant encouragement and the support of everyone at the workouts was awesome and really helped me not sneak a cookie in trying times. Now I really believe and know I can accomplish anything and I can’t wait for the next challenge whether it is inside or outside the gym! “
“I started my first challenge at Pursuit last year to get into better shape for my wedding. The workouts were great and I lost a ton of weight! After I got married, I lost the motivation to continue with the program until I started the Spring Break challenge. I decided to put forth all my effort to get healthier. I followed the meal plan closely and made sure to record what I was eating to track my progress. I also kept track of 3 habits I felt I needed to improve on: taking a fish oil supplement, eating at least 5 servings of veggies a day, and drinking 100 ounces of water a day. With the support of my husband, family, and trainers at Pursuit I was able to jump start my weight loss goal!”
Lost 3.1% bodyfat and 4.75 inches!
“I have dropped 3% Body Fat and have more ENERGY! I have spent over 10 years wanting to get in better shape and healthier, instead my excuses have gotten me FAT and FLABBY. I am a real estate broker. I drive about 60,000 miles a year and I am always on the road and eating out in a rush. I was not eating healthy and I drank way too much soda. My wife and I have tried many times to start work out plans, but have struggled to stick with them more than a couple weeks at a time.
This Sprint 2 Spring Break Challenge has been the perfect kick start for me to change my life and build a body that I can be proud of. The Trainers and workouts at Pursuit Fitness are very motivating. The Pursuit Fitness Team has pushed me to make some simple changes to my diet and challenged me during every workout. I am amazed at the results in just 3 weeks and I am finally motivated to make the changes in my life to eat healthier and reach my fitness goals. Thanks Pursuit Fitness team!”

“I started 2015 by meeting with my doctor and a nutritionist about my weight. Their advice to me was simple: eat the right foods and add more exercise to my weekly routine. I started tracking what I ate and going to the gym, but I was not seeing any results. I wasn’t consistent and ended up gaining weight. Then the opportunity to join the Sprint to Spring Break Challenge arose. I was so nervous about what the experience would be like and if I would see results. Ryan, Adam, Joe, Sarah, Michelle, and all of the other members of Pursuit made me feel welcome and comfortable. They provided me with all the tools I needed to understand what to eat and how to perform the exercises. They were right there encouraging me when I wanted to give up. Most importantly, this community genuinely cares about each other and that makes a world of difference.
I am really proud of the progress I made over the course of the last three weeks. I really gave this contest my all and I see that my hard work is paying off. I’m still a long way away from my long term goal, but now after this experience, I am 100% sure that I will be successful in hitting it as a member of PFP.”

“My name is Kathleen and I am 55 years old. I’ve been happily married to my husband for 30 years and we have two wonderful sons (ages 26 and 22). Last year when I hit 250 pounds, they were worried and told me that they wanted me to be around for a long time. Of course, that is what I want too but hearing it from them made it “real”. Well the old saying, “you get what you pay for” is really true. I could join a gym and pay $10.00 a month but I would be on my own. I wouldn’t have anyone tailoring an exercise program to suit my specific needs. I wouldn’t have anyone watching out for me and making sure I am using proper form while working out so that I don’t get injured. I feel like I have ownership in Pursuit Fitness. This is my personal gym and I have my own coach whom I can contact anytime I need advice. I typically work out Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays at 6:00 am. No one has to push me to go. I honestly enjoy it and love how it makes me feel. I look forward to working out those days. The other members are so supportive and fun to be around. The challenges are great because they take you out of your comfort zone and really make you focus on your goal for a certain time frame. You sure learn a lot about what you can accomplish when you are eating the right foods to fuel your workouts. A big thank you to Ryan, Adam, Sarah, Joe, & Michelle for providing me with such an awesome opportunity. I’ve accomplished a lot but I still have more work to do. This is a new way of living for me. I feel healthier, stronger, more confident and happier because I work out at Pursuit Fitness. I wish the same for all of you.”
Lost 4.6% bodyfat and 6.4 lbs!
“I am absolutely delighted my daughter, Jen, introduced me to a gym and fitness program she found to be friendly, encouraging and effective. Pursuit Fitness and Performance is a time and lifestye I now share with my daughter as well as the fun community of fellow personal improvement seekers and gentle but persistent coaches. I didn’t realize that coasting for more than 5 years on my previous fairly good fitness level had caused me to become pudgy, thick waisted and perhaps a little mentally thick too. I’m excited about the strength, flexibility and quickness I’ve gained in only 3 short weeks.
When my daughter first invited me, I admit I dreaded the thought of committing to a diet and time consuming exercise, but this gym made the challenge fun and very doable. I am excited to be able to continue this program that has made me realize how much better I can feel.”
Lost 12.6 lbs and 4.5 inches!
“I started at Pursuit in February. Within a few weeks, I noticed changes in how my clothes fit, but the scale hadn’t moved much. When I heard about the Sprint to Spring Break Challenge, I was excited for the possibility of boosting results and getting to my goals faster. I far exceeded my expectations of what I could accomplish in 3 weeks! Small changes really did make a big difference. One of the changes I incorporated with the challenge was eating vegetables with breakfast. I’d been good about eating veggies for lunch and dinner, but rarely think to include them at breakfast. Another change is walking as much as time and the weather allows. I work close to Creve Coeur Park and have been walking at lunch most work days. My dogs have been loving getting walks around the neighborhood multiple times a day. At Pursuit, I did group training 4 days each week and pushed myself get better with every workout. It was great having Joe to check in with and knowing someone cared about how everything was going. I’m looking forward to what I can achieve going forward with the help of the great coaches at PFP!”
