Hi! My name is Alyssa Young. I bought a Nautilus Elliptical in February 2015. It was the best decision I've ever made for my life, my health, my self-confidence. I have two children, aged 9, and 4. They are my everything, my inspiration for starting a new healthy lifestyle. My fiancé, Levi, is my biggest support system. Without his support, I may not have made it through the last 6 months of sweat, tears and struggle. I have a love-hate relationship with my elliptical, but at the end of the day, I know it is helping me continue on this joyous path of health and well-being.
After I bought my elliptical, I started a workout routine every morning, I changed all of our family's eating habits (no more chips!), and we all started enjoying the great outdoors, being as active as we could. And that's not hard with two young boys! I started this journey of mine at 160 pounds. I was unhealthy, overweight, and not happy. As the weight started coming off, I found a newfound outlook on my life. I am smiling more, I enjoy being active, I love shopping for clothing! I have gone from a large in clothing to an extra small, I have lost an astounding 40 pounds in these short 6 months, not to mention the 16.5 inches in total on my whole body. I am the healthiest, and happiest I've ever been in my entire life.
Thank you Flaman Fitness for supplying me with this chance to better my life for myself and my family. I am forever grateful.
It's been a very tough year after the stroke which took a significant portion of my cerebellum; the balance and vision center of the brain. What I was used to doing, I no longer could. The expectations I had of myself were no longer achievable. At least they weren't within the time frames I was accustomed to. And so I had to learn a "new normal", as my neurologist likes to say. This meant easing back into high heels, learning to work around the ever persistent headaches, careful reviews of written works, and accepting that there will be days when I am unable to even drive to the grocery store.
In learning a new way to balance my own body I have fallen down stairs, hit walls as though I were shoved, and stumbled over absolutely nothing! It's been frustrating at times for this one-time ballroom dancer. But my treadclimber has been my saving grace!
When I embraced a healthier lifestyle back in February; only 2 months after the stroke; I weighed in at 176lbs with a 39 inch waist. The numbers I will give shortly won't wow many, but I am so proud of what I have accomplished.Today I am weighing in at 167lbs and a 37inch waist! But more importantly, this week I achieved my fist goal; 40 consecutive minutes on the treadclimber @ an average speed of 1.7 with no mis-steps or stumbles! I'm actually so proud I have tears in my eyes. And to top it all off, sweat dropped off my nose so much I needed a hand towel!
I know my weight loss won't impress, but I knew I had to share this huge personal milestone. And I wanted to thank you all so much. I love my treadclimber!
It is hard to believe that it has been about 6 months since the Flaman Fitness “Pay With Your Pounds” advertisement caught my eye. At 60 years old, it was clear that my beer league hockey hadn’t been working as a fitness program. It was time to try something else. Since the exercise machine options available at Flaman Fitness were clearly more economic than a gym membership, that was the obvious path to the new me. I headed down to the Flaman Fitness location on the highway with the nattily dressed dummy who works out 24/7. Being conscious of efficiency, I chose the quietest elliptical in order to continue with my TV addiction while I worked out. I thought the elliptical would be the best choice considering that my old timer’s hockey obsession had not been kind to my knees.
Putting the machine together was straightforward and I immediately took it for a test run……after two minutes it was pretty clear I was not going to get to my 30 minute workout target. OUCH. Perseverance is the key, and although no TV shows last just 2 minutes, I was able to watch commercials while on the elliptical. Every day I put in 15 minutes no matter what, and even after only 2 weeks I knew I was feeling better. Slowly I increased the intensity, and later on just the time. After 6 months, it is 30 to 60 minutes a day. Being at home, there was never an excuse for not putting in the minutes… another benefit as opposed to the gym membership. The key for me was not high intensity, but absolutely every day getting some time in on the machine. Now if I miss a day, I really feel that something is wrong with my day.
I feel better than I have for years, and I am really looking forward to adding to my hockey career with my new found energy. Thanks Flaman Fitness.
