What started out as a suggestion from a good friend to try a spin class at Jeni-Fit has changed into a life changing journey.   I felt so comfortable and accepted at Jeni-Fit that I began to try some of the other classes offered like barre and boxing. I quickly became hooked.  The classes are small and the instructors are very helpful.

I decided to join DYW in September 2014 to lose the baby weight; my baby is 9 years old! After the initial assessment I was nervous that I would not be able to stick with it but that quickly changed because I was given the tools to make better food choices. I started eating “clean”, tracking my food, and exercising regularly.  DYW taught me that weight loss is 90% mental and I was ready to make myself a priority. I felt so inspired by Christine’s story that I began to think I can DO this!

Jen makes sure that everyone feels comfortable at Jeni-Fit. She takes the time to really listen to what you have to say and helps you achieve your goals. My DYW group was and still is wonderful. There is so much support, encouragement and motivation at Jeni-Fit that you feel like you have become a part of a family, a community of women and men supporting one another to be the best you can be.

After the 9 week program I lost 26 lbs. and felt so good about myself. I continued to exercise regularly and joined a second mini DYW to keep me on track. Not only did I stay on track but I lost another 11 lbs., bringing my total to 37lbs.

To date, I have lost 43lbs and gained my life back. I feel like the “old” me. Christine and Jen continue to support and encourage me along this journey and now it is time for me to pay it forward.

As a long time Jeni-Fit client I decided to participate in the first ever Deflate Your Weight Challenge in September 2012. I was determined to take off unwanted pounds and reclaim my health. The combination of nutritional guidance, exercise and the support of my fellow participates helped me lose 20 pounds in the first six weeks. The program kept me motivated, held me accountable, provided sweat drenching workouts and tracked and celebrated my success along the way. After the challenge I continued to take Jeni-Fit classes regularly, committed to eating “clean” and to date am down a total of 50 pounds. DYW taught me that weight loss is not only physical but also mental. I needed to change my mindset about food, exercise and commitment to myself. I needed to tell myself I can and I did!

What I love about Jeni-Fit is the warm, friendly environment among members and instructors. It is not intimidating which for me was an important factor in getting started and sticking with it. The small class sizes at Jeni-Fit give you the benefits of personal training, but with the encouragement and energy of a group class. Instructors know you by name and provide you with the motivation you need to push yourself further than you would on your own. Jeni-Fit is more than just a gym to me. It’s an amazing community of people who support and care about each other. At Jeni-Fit I get to workout, have fun, make friends and most importantly see results.

The biggest compliment I get is when people tell me I am an inspiration. I did this for myself but am in awe of how my journey has helped so many realize that it’s never too late to reclaim your life and get fit. With the encouragement of Jenifer and my friends at Jeni-Fit I decided to get certified and share my passion. I am currently certified in Indoor Cycling, Piloxing and trained in the Jeni-Barre Method. I believe that fitness classes should be motivating, challenging but most of all fun. As I like to say, “I want you leaving with a smile but feeling like I kicked your butt!”

Thank you Jenifer and your team at Jeni-Fit for helping me see my potential and reach my goals. There’s no better feeling than Healthy!

As one of your “original” Jeni-Fit clients, I’ve been enjoying your indoor and outdoor classes. Last year, however, I decided to “Make Change Happen” for myself and did your Deflate Your Weight program. As a working Mom who hates to cook, I thought it would be too hard to get any real results, but the combination of nutrition and fitness classes were very manageable and provided the tools I needed to finally lose weight and get healthy.

I lost 13.5 pounds during Deflate Your Weight and a total of 20 pounds since I started. Remarkably, I’ve gone down THREE pants sizes! I got to buy myself a whole new wardrobe!

Better than that, however, I’ve made lasting changes to live a healthier life.
I feel better and stronger than I have in a long time. Your variety of classes keeps me coming back (Zumba is my new favorite) and your personal touch and attention helps me stay motivated and on track to keep the weight off.

Thank you for your support and encouragement and for helping me to finally meet my weight loss goals!

I know I needed to do something about my weight and my fitness level. I hated treadmills and did not have the discipline to drag myself to the gym. When I saw an online ad for a boxing class, I decided to try it.

I was looking for exercise that was not boring or repetitive. When I started, I could not keep up with the other participants. All the trainers took the time to make sure the programs met my exercise level. I always felt like I got personal attention in a group environment and for group rates.

As my weight came down and my endurance increases, the classes remain challenging. All the instructors are fun and enthusiastic without being intimidating.

Both the boxing and the spinning are great workouts but also great fun. I enjoy it so much that I actually look forward to a 5:45 AM class.

Even though most of my fellow participants are women, as a man I am continually engaged but also entirely comfortable.

I have now been attending classes for over 15 months. I have lost over 45 pounds and my cholesterol level has dropped from 207 to 169.

I am a true believer that change can happen!

Like almost everyone at every age, I had a desire to lose weight and put my physical fitness in my own hands. At 19 and a college student, I figured there was no better time to start than now. With the help of a very special aunt of mine, she introduced me to Jeni-Fit’s Deflate your Weight program and motivated me to start my journey.

At first I was nervous and feeling a bit out of place as one of the youngest people I saw in the gym and in the program, but within that same week of the beginning of the program, those feelings quickly evaporated. The Jeni-Fit family, (yes you quickly learn it is a family,) are the most motivational, supporting, and loving people you can find. That was a HUGE impact on my success. I was overwhelmed by inspiration and encouragement to keep going and push harder to reach my goal.

It’s evident that the Deflate Your Weight program changed my life. In the nine weeks of the program, I lost 30 pounds and three months after completing the program lost a total of 50 pounds. But I don’t like to focus on what I lost, it’s rather what I gained. I gained self confidence, happiness, motivation, and most importantly a new healthy lifestyle.

If you can’t already tell by all the other success stories, Jeni-Fit provides you with all the resources you need to find results. Never at 19 would I have thought that what I would look forward to most when coming home from school is going to Jeni-Fit. I still have more I look to fulfill and I’m still on my journey, but I can say with full confidence that it’s been the best and most accomplishing thing I’ve done in my life thus far.

I joined Jeni-Fit not with the intention of losing weight, but to become stronger, healthier and fit. Losing weight was a bonus!! At Jeni-Fit I started with the “DYW – Deflate Your Weight” program. I learned to shop for food, which lead to eating better. I learned to exercise the right way so I didn’t get injured. The large  variety of classes  kept me motivated and never bored. As Jenifer would say my eating became “mindful” and I “gave it my all” while I was exercising, I didn’t quit! Living right has become a way of life. I’m taking care of myself to stay a better me. Thanks, Jenifer. I truly could not have done it without you and your studio. xoxo
