Members that Inspire Us

Pamela Sampson joined Bristol Total Fitness in October 2016. Over the past thirteen months, she has lost a total of 120 pounds! Pam has gone from having difficulty walking to exercising for an hour and a half to two hours per day. She has eliminated diabetes and is in a much healthier place because of this lifestyle change. Pam says, “Don’t take fitness for granted. It’s difficult to get back once it’s gone.” Pam works out with a trainer, Will, and she enjoys the challenge that the session’s offer- they keep her motivated and have significantly increased her physical abilities as well. Pam’s journey is an inspiration to us all! Congratulations!
Chip Sousa joined Swansea Total Fitness in December of 2016. Over the last year, Chip has lost an astounding 185 pounds. He starts his workouts with heavy weight lifting because muscle is so important for overall strength and body composition, then does cardio, to stay the fat burning zone for ultimate results. “It’s not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle” is what Chip told us and he definitely lives up to that. In addition to hitting the gym six days a week, he says that diet is 99% of his success. Staying disciplined to your program is the only way to stay on track. Chip says it’s been nothing but a great experience at SWTF because of the great staff. Congrats Chip!
