DOWN 35 LBS!!! Way to go Cristina!!! 

"I have danced all my life. That being said, in my most active years I also ate whatever I wanted, as I spent innumerable hours in the dance studio. Fast forward to last summer as I completed my MBA. I had spent the past two years living and traveling abroad in Europe. Needless to say, many hours were spent studying, wining, and dining. Exercising and eating healthy? Not so much. 

When I got home from Barcelona, it was a huge wake up call for me. I was the heaviest I had ever been and extremely out of shape. Thanks to my sister Jessie (already a NJFF success story!), I was inspired to also make the necessary changes for a healthier lifestyle. I signed up for a 6 week program at NJ Fitness Factory, began a nutrition plan, and never looked back. Despite my dance background, I admit I can be a bit lazy, so I found that the one-on-one personal training sessions were extremely effective for me. Frank was a fantastic trainer who not only motivated me, but also pushed me to accomplish new goals each week! He also prevented me from slacking as I knew I would have to be accountable to someone other than myself. 

Loving the changes I was both seeing and feeling in my body, I decided to try the 90 day challenge next! During this time, not only was I losing weight, but I was actually building muscle and toning up! Since I started in September, I have lost over 35 lbs! A big thanks to the entire NJFF family of trainers and staff for all your support and encouragement during this time. Now it's Doug's turn to keep whipping me into shape! Can't wait to see what's coming up next."

"I've been an active person for as long as I can remember and have been fortunate to have never really had to "diet". However, no amount of exercise could prevent my body shape and size from changing over the years.
My goal in meeting with Marc at NJ Fitness Factory wasn't necessarily to lose weight, it was to educate myself on how to combine exercise with diet for a healthier lean and mean figure. At 5'1 1/2" losing 7-8 pounds made a huge difference. With "Miracle worker Mike" I pushed my muscles to the max and taught my husband and daughters how to eat more nutritiously and adventurous. Today is my 40th birthday and I can't say enough how this was the best gift ever. After three months of training I feel great, and for the first time in my life, I'm sharing a photograph of myself in a bikini.
Thank you NJ Fitness Factory for making 40 fabulous!!"

Hey guys, Marc here. We've always been big on tracking our clients progress by weighing and measuring. But to be honest weighing yourself everyday or even every week is a big mistake. If you're currently doing that I'd encourage you to stop. NOW. Let clothes sizes be your indicator for success. If you have 50 pounds or more to lose and the scale is not budging then there's something that needs to be addressed...exercise, diet, or hormonal imbalance. 98% of the time it's one of the 1st two. But if you have 10-20 pounds you want to lose and the scale doesn't move BUT you are fitting into smaller clothes then you are succeeding!

I've heard alot of people ask: is it because muscle weighs more than fat? Well not really. It's just that muscle is more dense. See 5 pounds of muscle equals 5 pounds of fat. They're both 5 pounds. The difference is that muscle takes up less space.
It's very possible to slowly gain muscle and slowly lose fat and see the scale stay the same.

Our client Karen has had a similar result and has really come a long way. I wanted to feature Karen this week because she recently came to us with some serious news. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I couldn't believe it. I think the big shocker for me was how strong she was. She said to me, "I'd rather be here than stuck at home thinking about it." Karen has been fairly public about her diagnosis and gave me permission to speak about it. She said she wants to increase awareness and help other women fight this disease.

Sometimes doing what needs to be done is about perspective and realizing that there's always someone in a tougher situation that is getting the job done. We all are busy. Have families. Responsibilities. Are tired. Get unmotivated. But when I see a woman getting herself to the gym that just received that diagnosis, I know anyone can muster the mental strength to get themselves there. Karen you're an inspiration to us all and we will be right here fighting with you.

Never ever give up,
Marc
Karen's Story

"Like most of the women I know, I was a slave to the scale obsessing over the number as if it had some magical powers. Here's what is finally sinking in after joining NJ Fitness Factory...the scale is not the be all & end all of my progress. When I first walked into NJFF, I already belonged to another gym for a while and had lost some weight. I bought a one month membership to give myself some variety and I never left. That was ten months ago!

When I first joined I was squeezing into a size 10. I can now slip into a size 8 without hesitation (sometimes even a size 6!) I recently purchased a dress in the Juniors department to wear to a destination wedding. The dress only zipped about halfway but I really liked it and felt it was the perfect dress for beach wedding in Punta Cana. I brought it home and hung it where I had to see it everyday. I asked Frank, who I worked with one on one to show me what I needed to do to make that dress zip. Between my sessions with him and the group sessions, that dress zipped without hesitation. The number on the scale did not change all that much but my body did. Not only do I feel strong, but I can see muscles I forgot that I had. One of my greatest joys in life is being a grandma...but not looking and feeling like one!
I am thankful that I walked in that day! I am thankful that the entire staff made me feel welcome. I am most thankful for the friends that I have made and the love and support they give me as I continue on my journey."

Another big turn out for our 6 Week Transformation Program! We weren't sure how the turn out would be this month since this is such a big vacation month and parents are busy with the kids. That didn't stop 100 people from getting on board! And most of those people were referrals. Which is our biggest compliment. Russ, myself, and our staff work very hard to deliver a great experience, great results, with great trainers. We are looking forward to helping everyone over the next 6 weeks and beyond! Thank you all for spreading the good word! With this continued growth Russ and I have some big plans for our clients for the future. Stay tuned! -Marc

Another success story and amazing transformation! We are so proud of our client Andrea. You look fantastic!!

"There's a famous picture of me from high school laying on the beach with the sunblock drizzled on me saying, "I do not exercise". With the exception of ballet until my teens, I never exercised and never believed in it. Then, the 30's hit and my clothes started becoming "snug".
Fast forward to 2014-my upcoming wedding. I knew that I needed a change and it had to be the type of fitness I would and could do. I wanted to be fit and feel beautiful on my big day. I found NJFF by driving by the Bloomfield location on a weekly basis and decided to stop in-and I am incredibly glad I did.
Having been a member since April, I am in better shape now than when I was in high school. I have lost weight, gained muscle, and have dropped about 2 dress sizes. I feel stronger, sleep better, and look forward to going to NJFF everyday. With the help of the suggested nutrition guide, I am eating better-not dieting, but eating the right foods to help me become healthier and continue my weight loss.
At first, like everyone trying something new, I was hesitant and nervous. What if I was unable to keep up? What if the exercises were too hard? But after the first class I knew this was a place and a process I could commit to. The trainers are encouraging without being patronizing. The members are friendly and supportive. Each class had modification options offered as a way to still exercise but at my level of fitness. The classes are varied, challenging, and work all the muscle groups. The #1 reason I have continued to come to class 6 days a week; never the same routine and after 45 minutes of sweating, I have completed a thorough total body workout. If you had asked me in April if I could 1/2 the exercises I can complete now, I would never have believed you. It was with the positive support of trainers like Ryan and Nick that have pushed me to continually challenge my personal best. If you are thinking about trying a new fitness regime or like me said, "I have to do something", try NJFF. I promise you will not regret it!"

Another success story!
We are so proud of our client Kim! You look amazing!!

"I cannot express how happy I am that I made the decision to join NJ Fitness Factory.
Initially, I prepaid for a package from a website and scheduled an appointment to learn about the program. I met with Marc who really took the time to explain the fitness program and answered all of my questions. As I was walking to my car, I thought the program wasn't right for me and that I'd ask for my money back. Fortunately, I decided that I would at least give it a try since it was already paid for and I instantly became addicted. It has become part of my daily routine and I attend classes at least 5 days a week. The trainers are motivating, supportive and make the workouts exciting and challenging. With the encouragement of great trainers; like Nick and Ryan, I am physically doing things that I never imagined myself doing. The physical benefits have been amazing, I am stronger, toner and more confident than I've ever been. In 3 months, I have lost 12 lbs and lots of inches. I am very excited to have reached my goal to be down 2 pant sizes!! At NJFF, you are treated like family and not like a number on a membership tag. I'm committed to a really great fitness program."

Can you believe the picture on the left was taken only 6 weeks ago? Through NJ Fitness Factory's 6 Week Transformation Program, Frank has worked so hard to achieve this amazing transformation. We are so proud of him!!!

I had driven by NJ Fitness Factory everyday for a year saying I should join, but I thought it was boot camp or too intense - I made up excuses. One day while walking I went and met Michelle, Russ and Marc. They spoke with me for almost 30 minutes about the fitness and nutrition programs. I signed up right then for the 6-week Transformation challenge. This was the best decision. I go to the group training classes at least 6 times a week. The instructors are knowledgeable, helpful, and energetic. I leave each session covered in sweat, but thankful for what they do. It's an amazing feeling. The encouragement and support from the team is top notch. They respond to any concerns or questions immediately. They want me to feel better and lose weight. That's what makes it different than any other fitness center for me. I can't say enough about how exceptional NJ Fitness Factory is. I so recommend it to anyone who may be hesitant about getting in shape - this is the place to do it! No attitude, no fear. We are all there for the same reason and everyone, whether client or staff, is there to cheer you on!"
