 Thank you for all your kind words!

This was the best weight loss challenge that I have ever competed in!! From the beginning meeting to the end, It was very organized, very challenging, rewarding and most of all fun!! The Tuesday Fit-4-Life Workouts were great with all the teams together, but also getting together outside the gym, making new friends and pushing each of use to do things we normally would not do. And really feeling rewarded at the end. Not only will I do this next year, but I will recommend it to others!!! IT WAS GREAT!!!! Thanks Again!!!! Carrie McClure

I wasn’t going to do this because I am not in great shape, but I am glad I joined in mostly because I learned I could do more than I anticipated. Judy B.

You all did a great job and I miss it already! Dennis

The Fit 4 Life Challenge was just another example of the dedication of Lori and her staff to encourage, teach and lead by example how to improve your health and self image through hard work and a good support system. My initial goal was to lose a dress size – and I did. However, with the discipline I learned and the feeling of accomplishment I achieved, I am eager to continue my quest for a healthier, stronger body. Thank you Lori and your wonderful staff. Laura Jahn

The fit 4 Life Challenge was a fun and enthusiastic program that got the whole team involved! It was good to be held accountable for your choices. I appreciated all the useful information the staff provided. Gail

Throughout the full 60 days of the challenge, I always felt the support and encouragement of my team members, Lisa, Lori and the staff of Coaches at My Stronger Self. What was most impressive was that although this was clearly a challenging competition ALL team members encouraged and supported ALL the other teams and many of the teams even worked together at times. I am quite certain that no one and no other fitness facility is more sincerely committed to the good health and well being of their members than Lori, Lisa and the entire staff at My Stronger Self.

The fit 4 life challenge was a great experience. It showed that if you work hard you would see results. You got out of it what you put in. The team effort was also motivating and fun. I’ll be ready for the next fit 4 life challenge! Carol

This was a terrific way to kick start the Summer. My “New Year’s Resolutions” were wearing thin when this start, so it was very welcome. The eight week length was perfect as it was enough time for actions to become habits. Thank you so much for all the extra work this took on the staff side. I’d love to do it again next year!! Heidi Kasab

I was hesitant in joining the Fit-4-Life Challenge because I had been working out for over a year already and had not seen the weight loss I was looking for. I did however decide to join and am so glad I did! It got me re-focused and I was accountable not only to myself but to my team. I did not want to let them down or myself! I beat my personal weight goal and started running again. This is something I haven’t done in about 10 years! If it weren’t for the Tuesday night run we did I still wouldn’t think that I could run 3 miles!! So thanks on so many different levels – for the support, getting us to think outside the box, meeting new people and exceeding my goal! I will participate again and will highly recommend to others! Thanks Lori and Lisa! Megan

I can’t begin to express all my positive thoughts about the staff and members at My Stronger Self.  It was great fun and I obtained great results. I highly recommend it to anyone needing a nudge to get started toward reaching weight loss and fitness goals. The staff at My Stronger Self is knowledgeable and caring, the members are supportive and friendly, the workouts are challenging and yet still fun! They have the whole package at My Stronger Self. Give it a try. What have you got to lose?  ~ Michelle Hamilton, 2012 Winner

Excellent program. Keeps you focused and in touch with people with the same goals and interests. A great way to try new things and push yourself to the next level of fitness.

The challenge has totally changed me for the better. I see working out in a whole new light. I enjoy coming to the gym and the friendships that I have are wonderful. Everyone there is just awesome.

I loved the Tuesday Fit-4-Life Workouts, it was great having all teams together, showing support not only for your team but for everyone, a little competition is always fun.

FANTASTIC … Lori was great, always pushing us to do the best we could, reminding us not to loose focus and to work hard not only for ourselves but also for the team … the rest of the staff was great, they gave support to everyone regardless of what team you were on.

All the staff at MSS rocks. They seem to genuinely care about the clients. They work hard to provide the right mix of challenge/fun. Loved all the extras that Lisa did with the videos and the emails keeping us pushing forward.
