I have worked out for years and was and am a real cardio junkie! I would do triathlons, runs etc and love the crazy sweat and rush you get from cardio. Over a year along I was losing interest and drive and was not seeing the results I wanted in my body. I was chronically tired and as I ramped up training I always got sick.
Then I looked at PUSH!FIT. I love the personalized and focused approach to both my workout program and nutrition program. What a difference it has made to how I am executing the exercises and we are focused on areas that I need to work on; posture, left shoulder, core. It is so specialized to what I want to work on, I love it and we incorporate cardio on days that I am not in the studio. A perfect balance.
My name is Carrie and I’m a mother, wife, grandmother and retired Resource Teacher. Underneath all these titles was an unfit woman who was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I had unhealthy eating habits and was overweight. I felt that walking 30 min several days a week would not only help me lose weight but keep me lean and fit. Hahah, I was fooling myself. I even joined a typical gym thinking that was the answer but after several months on their ‘circuit’ or treadmill, there were no results.
I Joined PUSH!FIT after observing a friend lose weight, lose fat, grow stronger and lean up in just 3 months. The transformation was incredible so I thought “why not”, I’ll give it 6 months and see what happens.
To be completely honest, a best friend of mine had already joined PUSH!FIT and suggested I do the 90 day Fit and Lean program with her. The studio is about a 35 minute drive for me but I agreed to try this out because I thought my friend was looking for an ally to help her accomplish her goals! Unaware of her true motives, I arrived at PUSH!FIT to complete my orientation and initial body composition. Listening to the results I slowly realized that she was gently telling me that I was overweight and WE needed to do something about it. (I love my friend.) I was nervous about joining because my hips were sore and I was having trouble climbing the stairs in my house. I had torn a muscle a year or two earlier which had limited my activity…
I have less brain fog and have lost 10% body fat!
PUSH!FIT has become a great part of my day.
My shoulder and neck tension issues are largely in control. I have increased strength, better cardio, good sleep, better nutrition knowledge and habits and overall, I am improved, which has been a great way to hit 50!
I have been an active person over the last 30 years and after a back injury several years ago, I have struggled to find an exercise program to help me get back on my feet. After attending an open house, I signed up for the exercise and nutrition programs at PUSH!FIT, and have not looked back.
I became accountable for my well being.
Learning to eat the right foods at the right time along with the exercise has enabled me to lose weight, inches and become more toned. I feel stronger and have energy plus! I have achieved this goal because of the positive attitude and support offered from everyone at PUSH!FIT, along with my family and friends.
I wanted to start a fitness program as I had not made a lot of time to exercise consistently since having my son. I was feeling low on energy, I had lost muscle and wanted to get back to my pre-pregnancy shape. In addition to that, I compete on a high level sports team and wanted to be in the best shape possible so I could perform well.
Since joining PUSH!FIT, I have been able to lose inches, body fat and more than 15lbs. I feel toned, strong, healthy, confident and fit. I have surpassed my goals and feel good about myself again…
For the past 10 years, I had been consistently putting on a few pounds a year from a love of junk food and too much wine. My clothes size started increasing and everything was getting tighter. The final tipping point was when I saw a picture of myself from the back and actually didn’t know who it was. I knew then that I needed to do something to get back to the me I pictured in my mind.
To date I have lost almost 20 lbs. Although this is great, the big deal is not the pounds, but rather the way I feel and look. I feel healthier, stronger, leaner, more energized, and more motivated than ever to keep going to hit my end goal….
I joined PUSH!FIT on the recommendation of my friends and neighbours, Kathryn and Nathalie, who were already diligent members and in fantastic shape. Prior to joining PUSH!FIT, I felt I was in reasonable health with a normal BMI and using running and skiing as my primary forms of exercise. At first, I didn’t feel like I needed a new fitness routine. However, with age, I was frequently injured with knee and hip issues. After attending a try-out class, I was hooked on the idea.
Looking for a complement to running, PUSH!FIT seemed like a logical choice. What I didn’t realize was…

About 10 weeks ago I started with with Christine Line’s team at PUSH!FIT studio. I had signed up for a triathlon in August and while I’d done these types of races before, I hadn’t done one quite this big.
Twice a week I would meet up with Christine Chisholm and she’d work me over. I must say, I was really intimidated at first. Everyone at the gym was so young, fit and buff.
Ten weeks later I’m excited to say that I’ve noticed some significant changes in myself….
I live with constant low back, neck and nerve pain. I was approaching a milestone birthday and I had slipped into a rut of inactivity which only fuelled the pain. I was feeling blue and desperate to get control of my body and my life. I attended one of Carl Weston’s back clinics and was so impressed with his knowledge that I booked an assessment and signed on for personal training. I’ve been with PUSH!FIT for 4 months and I’m amazed at my progress. I enjoy the hard work required to strengthen my core and the muscles supporting my spine…
During the last six years before joining PUSH!FIT studio, I felt that my physical ability had become stagnant.
Although I was active, I lacked energy and stamina. Christine Line of PUSH!FIT studio, along with the nutritionist have taught me to achieve a balance of nutrition and exercise enabling me to reach my goals of weight loss and feeling healthy and fit in a short period of time!
I could not have done this without the support and encouragement of all the Trainers, Nutritionists and my family!
My journey started simply from a referral from my Chiropractor. I knew I had to make changes in my life but had not taken the initiative myself and really didn’t know where to start. I had been very active my whole life playing basketball and volleyball but through various injuries over time as well as work and family commitments had moved away from that and become very inactive. I had also joined a gym previously but had very mixed results. I had an assessment done at PUSH!FIT and was shocked at how poor my results were. From there we went through a comprehensive list of options and worked out a training and nutrition program that best met my needs…
I could just image how the conversation might go with my wife if she were to say to me: “Mike, I’ll love you when you are old, I’ll love you when you are bald, I’ll love you if you are fat. But, you don’t have to be all three.” Maybe that would be the nudge I’d need. So before it got to that, I thought I do something about the later.
From the age of 25 to 42, my weight crept up to almost 240lbs. At nearly 6’4” I wouldn’t have been described as “fat” but I certainly felt “Doughy”. I play a few sports, but each year I seemed to get a bit bigger, a bit slower, and a bit weaker. I was getting injured. It was getting more difficult to keep up with my kids on the ice and ski hill…
About 5 years ago, I realized that, although I was an active person, I wasn’t exercising regularly. So I started running and exercising at home but felt I had reached a plateau. My level of fitness was not where I wanted it to be. I joined PUSH!FIT on the recommendation of a friend over 2 years ago and I am so glad I did!
Since joining PUSH!FIT, I have seen significant gains in my strength and overall fitness. I am stronger now than I have ever been. The trainers provide new, high energy workouts that leave me feeling great. I love the small class size because I get a personal trainer-like experience with the social aspect of working out with others…
I have have lost over 20% Body Fat since starting this program and sticking to it!
Down 6%! Lost 12 pounds of Body Fat, Taking care of me!
I lost 10% Body Fat. I gained 7 lbs muscle
At first I thought I would join PUSH!FIT to just to lose a few pounds and shed some of the baby weight. Little did I know that it would be the beginning of a larger journey! Looking back at the past year, I have to say that being at PUSH!FIT has become more of a personal challenge to find "myself". I think all of us have this inner person that you know is the REAL you. That looks a certain way, and behaves a certain way. Over the years with work, kids, and other commitments I feel like the true me got a bit lost. Exercise has been the one thing I can control and getting stronger and fitter has been the motivation to keep going. Plus it extends into other aspects of my life and makes me feel more balanced…
