On May 20th, 2013 Body Renew Fitness & Tanning announced on Facebook that they were going to hand select two lucky people who would receive 5 sessions a week with a Personal Trainer for the next 90 days for Free.  We gave everyone 9 days to get their entries in.  There were a few requirements in order to take part. 

1.  The two people will be hand selected by the owners of the company.  We are looking for 2 people that would like to change their life for the better.

2.  Must be overweight, out of shape and in desperate need of losing weight.

3.  Must be willing and able to exercise 5 days a week.  EVERYWEEK!

4.  Willing to workout at the Progress facility

5.  Able to exercise between 10 AM and 7 PM.  Monday through Friday. 

6.  Willing to allow us to video document some of your progress.  

There was no memberships needed, no money out of your pocket, nothing except your commitment to change your life. 

We had 75 people apply for this chance to win this amazing opportunity.  Seventy-five people submit amazing stories of their struggles with weight, health issues, family challenges, eating, lifestyle changes and so on. Every single story had amazing people behind them.  We struggled keeping our composure while reading each and everyone of them.  We debated for days and hours about who to choose and why we should choose them.  In the end, we just found it extremely difficult to pick only two. We announced on May 31st that we had actually decided on three lucky ladies who would take on this 90 day challenge starting June 1st.  Those lucky ladies are, Tiffany Parsons, Amanda Morales and Marisa Slappey.  Each of these ladies have incredible stories and a large support system behind them.  Tiffany wants to change her life so she can spend more time with her mom and be able to be active with friends and family.  Amanda just stepped up in a gigantic way when she volunteered to raise her sisters 7 children along with her own 17 year old son.  Marisa is the wonderful mother of three and wants to teach her children to live a healthy lifestyle so she can see them grow into amazing young adults. 


You would like to follow their journey with them and provide wonderful words of encouragement, cheer them on, push them to be go farther and help them through the rough times ahead, please do by liking our Facebook page.  We have posted videos of them working out and will continue to post more.  Here are a few helpful links for you.

Yes! You read that correctly.  Body Renew Fitness and Tanning now offers Personal Training online.  Were all here for the same reasons right? To get fit and stay healthy.  Some of us just do a better job of staying consistent and being motivated.  I truly believe that everyone benefits from the accountability, motivation and consistency that a Personal Trainer brings to a workout program.  I practice exactly what I preach.  I have two trainers.  Shay Massey trains me 6 times a week (Mon through Sat at 8:30 in the morning).  She keeps my program different every single day, keeps me focused on my goals, my exercises and the reason I wanted to stay in shape.  I am able to simply show up and not even have to think about what I have to do.  I have another trainer that gives me high intensity non stop training 3 days a week at 2:00.  He pushes me to that limit that my body just can't handle 6 days a week.  I leave out of breath, tired and feeling like I just took on the world.  There are days I just don't have the energy or desire to go to the gym to workout.  Yet, I still manage to show up because I have an appointment with my trainer.  I know that I won't allow myself to let them down by not being there.

Are you looking to trim fat, lose love handles, and flatten your belly? We hear a lot about dieting and cutting back our calories to lose weight, but we don't just want to lose weight, we also want to lose fat... and fast!

In a nut shell, without exercising, much of the weight you lose will be muscle, not fat, and your metabolism will slow. The more muscle you have the faster your metabolism burns.  To lose fat, you’ll need to add more exercise to your weight loss program. Try increasing your workout routine to at least 3 days per week for 1 hour each day. Or for faster results up that to even 5 days a week.  Aim to get your heart rate into that cardio fat burning zone of 60% - 70% of your maximum heart rate (max heart rate = 220 - your age) for at least 30 minutes each workout and do a variety of strength training exercises for at least 20 minutes.  You can best accomplish this by combining your resistenence workout with your cardio.  Try circuit training or super setting your exercises.  Concentrate on moving fast between exercises and not allowing yourself to rest.
