Rian's Boot Camp 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.

I started another new job that summer, and wasn't coming as consistently as I planned. This past winter, I started the 12 month unlimited plan, and began training 5-6 days a week starting in February. My trainers continuously encouraged me to keep coming back more than just a couple days a week, and I am so glad that they did. I am so much stronger than I was four months ago. It's pretty crazy to think how incredible of a workout this is for just 30 minutes a day.

Aside from the fact that I've lost 12 lbs. in the past 3-4 months, I feel stronger, happier, and more confident than I've felt in a while. I am getting tons of compliments from my friends and family, and it's a great feeling. 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!
