Success Stories

“People might call me crazy, but my favorite part about Legacy Fitness is actually the people. I love the camaraderie and friendships that I’ve found there. I started Legacy in August 2012 to prepare for Tough Mudder-Austin and continue to come because I want to stay feeling good; especially since turning 40 this year.

Legacy has not only made me feel good and in shape – the biggest difference for me has been my mental strength.”

“My overall health has improved greatly because of Legacy Fitness. It’s nice not to feel sluggish during the day anymore. I’ve witnessed a loss of body fat and an increase in energy. I’ve also found that making smarter food decisions has become a lot easier.

The accountability makes me get out of bed at 5am. Getting my work out in that early in the day is great because my daughter is still asleep, so it doesn’t take away from my time with her and I probably wouldn’t make it to the gym after work otherwise.

Some people say that they couldn’t get up that early and are proud of my dedication to take care of myself. My family can see how much happier I am because of the Legacy Fitness and how much better I look and feel.”

“Legacy Fitness has been a great change in my life. My wife loves it since my alcohol consumption has decreased tremendously. I’m more cognizant of what I’m eating and drinking as a result of joining.

I have always neglected working out my legs. After joining Legacy, I’ve noticed an increase in strength in my legs, specifically my quads. As a result, I have also noticed a considerable decrease in pain in my right knee. I will never forget the 400-squats… as a warm-up!!

Jan is a great instructor who keeps the class motivated and is willing to alternate exercises if you can’t perform them normally. I keep coming back for more because of the built-in health benefit. I’ve lost weight and leaned up and don’t want to lose what I’ve achieved so far. “
