Success Stories

  • Joining Corefit not only met and exceeded what I had hoped to find in a gym and team of coaches, it unexpectedly gifted me with a community of folks with similar desires and passions, many of whom are now my closest friends. There have certainly been big accomplishments along the way to celebrate – 100 lbs lost, first solo hike, first Spartan, clocking a 7:40 mile - but it was the individual, daily choices and wins that cemented my new identity and life. So much so that despite taking on a second job last year that made for a 70-hour work week, I continue to show up for workouts and runs, even when it means rolling in after a 10-hour grave shift. It is who I am. I was once afraid, living a small life that I worked to control at every turn. I now intentionally take on fears and chase after life, seeking the edge of things in a life that is wide open and full of possibility. I am strong, mentally and physically. I am an athlete and a runner. I delight in who I am and live a hope and excitement for a life that exceeds anything I dared to want or expect of it. All because of a single decision, made hundreds of times over. Do hard things.

    I am Tethra, I am 45 years old and I am an athlete.

  • My name is Lynn. My current age is level 65. I signed on with CoreFit in 2009 because a Bootcamp class was being offered which sounded like fun. I didn’t need to lose weight but I wanted overall fitness. The gym offers a variety of classes at different times of the day to suit your needs. On the occasional day when you don’t want to go….it’s the coaches and community of people that keep you motivated to show up. So much positive energy! Consistently showing up a few times a week since 2009 has allowed me to stay active outside of the gym. I enjoy hiking, skiing, MTB, trail/road running and OCR. This gym can be a great fit for anybody. The coaches will modify any workout for you. The members are super friendly and class sizes are kept small.

  • Cindi's story on YouTube

    In January 2008, I stepped on the scale, weighing more than I ever had in my life. I had tried everything to lose weight – Weight Watchers, Curves, Phen-Fen, etc., only to gain back what I lost, and more. This time I was determined to lose the weight and develop a healthier lifestyle. I started working out with Kurt in Jan, 2008. He came up with an exercise program and nutritional plan (not a diet!) that worked for me; he was always pushing me to work a little harder, a little farther each time I worked out. His confidence in my ability to achieve my goals is what has kept me motivated. Since I started with Kurt, I have lost 55 pounds of FAT and dropped from 48% to under 23% body fat while putting on 12 pounds of lean body tissue and the weight has stayed off and I am motivated to continue! Kurt has convinced me that a sound nutritional and exercise plan is the only way to achieve my goals – and not fads, gimmicks, and weight-loss pills.

  • Did you want to join an exercise class? ...not really. I’m too old, I’ll never be able to do all that stuff, not for me.

    Then I found out that the instructor has a background in Physical Therapy and that your workouts will be modified to fit your ability. (Now here’s a person that could actually understand what recovering from total knee surgery is like.)

    Now I was getting mildly interested and thought, “I’ll try a couple of classes.”

    After several classes and meeting some of the nicest, most supportive people I’ve ever met, my interest was growing.

    Then I discover that I actually had MORE energy after each class. And most surprisingly, I was losing weight. That was when I realized what I thought I needed, was sleeping late and taking it easy... was oh so wrong! What I needed to feel better and have more energy and confidence was to get moving. (Who would ever have guessed that you could start lifting weights at age 80). And who knows, I could actually get back to the weight I have on my driver’s license...

    There is never a boring class at CoreFit. Plus you get great music for added inspiration.

  • This was an actual email sent towards the end of one of our challenges:

    "I just wanted to say thank you for offering these awesome classes. I was having some health issues and had my bloodwork re-tested last week, in 5 weeks all of my numbers have lowered significantly and my doctors are thrilled. I attribute it to the working out and diet change I started with CoreFit. This class has helped so much obviously with my health but with my mental state as well. I feel so good after I attend class and you’ve made me feel empowered to work through the workout. So thank you. See you Monday,"

Master Trainer

Our bodies were meant to move. When I was younger I wanted to move fast to compete in sports. But wisdom, experience, my love for the outdoors, and my years as a father shifted my motivation and left me wanting to move better in order to live more.

His eyes are obscured by the bill of his hat, but his mouth is open in the universal expression of 'victory'.

It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty & strength of which the body is capable. — Seneca

For as long as I can remember I’ve been in awe of muscular human physiology. Being neither naturally strong nor athletically gifted I assumed that such strength, muscularity, and power were gifts that some people were given and that others were not. I was not.
