Epic Fitness Member Dan Bailey, who just joined us as a member in January and who just completed our 6 week New Year New You Transformation Program shares his story below. In just a short 6 weeks, Dan made an amazing transformation losing over 26 pounds of fat and more than 5 total inches lost in his waist and hips combined. This helped his team of three win the cash grand prize of $3,000! These changes have spilled into other areas of his life, which he talks about below.
Where were you before you joined and became a client of our gym? How were you feeling?
I had lost about 50 pounds of weight, starting in August of 2016. I was just doing Weight Watchers. It had worked but only to a point. I could never get to the next level. I wanted to be the best me possible, and I could not do it myself. I needed help to get there. I was feeling frustrated with the results I was getting. I needed to do something different.
What was your turning point that you decided to take action and become a member?
I think for me, I just got tired of trying the same thing over and over. I was getting older, and was growing very tired of carrying all the extra weight around. I was very afraid of the potential health problems that would come find me if I did not do something about it. I also want to keep living life at a high level as I grow old, and I would not be able to do that if I kept going the way I was. Knowing I could not be healthy without some help I started to look for it. It just happens I know a world class strength coach, Dan John, who told me to go to Epic Fitness and work with their team. Looking back, I wish I had done it 5 years ago.
What happened when you joined? What are some of the biggest changes since you have joined?
When I joined, I was super nervous at first. But right away, everybody there accepted me, and I fell in love with the Epic family. Everybody there is so positive, and I feel so alive every time I leave after working out. Sometimes it is hard to get out of bed, but when you look in the mirror, it is so worth it. The biggest changes for me is my physical appearance. My clothes either don’t fit me anymore, because they are too big, or things I have not worn in years now fit. Everywhere I go, people comment on how good I look. I don’t take complements well, so that is a big change for me, in a great way. I have more muscle and strength than I ever thought I would. I don’t get winded as easily anymore, skiing is way more fun, and I have made a whole new group of friends!
What would you tell other people about Epic Fitness?
I would tell people how great Epic Fitness is! The entire team of coaches and staff are all amazing to work with! The programs that are developed individually for you work great, and the support you get from everyone is amazing. It really feels like a community, a group that everyone is welcome to be a part of. Epic is by far the best gym I have ever been to, and was the best decision I have ever made for my health and mental well-being. It is making me the best me I can be, and upgrading my life daily! Do yourself and everyone who loves you a favor, and join Epic fitness, it will make you the person you always knew was inside you! I only wished I had started sooner!
