Sweat Transformation: Lindsey

5 months ago I was staring “40” in the face and ready to try and reclaim my old self back after having three kids. I love to run and after having my first daughter and even my second, running was enough for me to feel okay with my body shape. After the third baby, coupled with age, running no longer did much for my overall body shape. I needed to mix up my routine a bit. I knew I wanted to incorporate weights along with cardio. Since running can be done with a kid or 2 in tow, I also knew I needed to come up with a little over an hour a day, to complete a workout, where I was kid free.

At first, I tried some classes at big gyms and shoved my crying kid in a dirty kid’s club while I jumped around in a crowded room with tons of ladies. I quickly figured out that that was not the answer. Not only was I stressed about leaving my baby while he was clearly unhappy, I wasn’t getting anything out of the large classes. I would leave each class feeling more defeated than when I entered. I needed one on one instruction by a qualified trainer who could tell me exactly what to do to achieve results.
After looking at Danielle’s website and reading reviews, Sweat Training sounded exactly like what I was looking for. My first visit I took and boot camp class. I was amazed at how much I could sweat in such a short amount of time! I was still looking for a longer, more intense workout so I tried the group training. It was perfect! I made a commitment to come in at 6:00 a.m., while my family was still sleeping and start my day off right.

 I feel like I have a personal trainer even when there are up to 3 additional people in the gym with me. After each class, I am out of breath, challenged and my body feels like it has really accomplished something. Most importantly, I feel like I am making the most of the hour that I have to myself, and not wasting one second of it!

I continue to take 3 group training classes a week and try to mix in some boot camps as well. Danielle has given me a lot of attention and is extremely patient and works really hard with me. She’s gotten me to a point where I am more comfortable with trading my “mom” t-shirts out for cute workout gear! Overall, I am a happier person, have more patience with my kids and husband and feel healthier because I am doing something that is not only great now, but will have a lasting effect!


Rian's Transformation Story

Throughout my early adult years, staying in shape was never an issue due to participating in collegiate soccer. It's easy to stay strong and toned when you are working out twice a day, and have games on the weekends.

Following college, a big move and new career took priority over my health, and it was difficult to get back in shape after a five year pause in consistent training. It's easy to lose focus and not see how your body is affected when you're so used to seeing yourself every day. I think my first rude awakening was seeing a picture and hardly recognizing myself. I knew I had to make some lifestyle changes, and it was going to be a tough road ahead. 

When moving back to Cincinnati, I tried a bunch of different workouts with my friends or by myself, and all of it was just ok. Nothing really motivated me or got me excited for a workout. In summer 2016, one of my friends introduced me to Sweat, and I immediately saw connections between their training and the training I had done for soccer my entire life. The class size was perfect, and I felt like I was getting the same level of attention as I was with my college trainers. Danielle and the trainers are great motivators, and they seriously know their stuff.

In 2016, I started with a few boot camp packages. In 2017, I started the 12 month unlimited plan, and began training anywhere from 3-6 days a week. I also did a few Group Personal Training packages to really ramp it up. I am so much stronger than I was years ago. It's pretty crazy to think how incredible of a workout this is for just 30 minutes a day.

Throughout the past 3 years, I have pushed myself at Sweat, and am now down 45 lbs. I feel stronger, happier, and more confident than I've felt in years. I'm to the point now where I look forward to working out every morning at Sweat, and I'm excited about what's to come!
