Big Impact Testimonials
"As January of 2014 approached, I found myself to be stuck in a rut with my weight continuing to spiral out of control. I have always exercised and belonged to gyms that offered traditional drop in fitness classes but was never really compelled to challenge myself. I had previous experience with personal training from Beau DeBruin and had heard that he along with Brandon Barker was opening a gym near my home. Feeling nervous and somewhat intimidated I decided to purchase the Groupon which allowed me to try some of the classes to see if this was something that I was interested in and would give me that extra push that I have been looking for.
It was going to Big Impact Fitness that did just that for me...made a Big Impact on my life! After only a few classes, it was apparent to me that Big Impact Fitness was a dynamic and innovative gym that provided both highly challenging and rewarding group classes taught by a group of friendly and enthusiastic trainers. I was not just a face in a class but rather part of an amazing group of trainers instructing athletes of all fitness levels. I especially like the varied nature of the Warrior workouts, which prevent me from getting bored and giving up. I also recently was able to sign my 12-year-old son up for boot camp classes that offer him the same sense of dedication and drive that I have found in belonging here.
This group of trainers is highly knowledgeable in areas of both fitness and nutrition, and is willing to help any chance they get. They continue to motivate me to become not only a stronger, healthier person but also a well-rounded individual who has both the mental and physical toughness to overcome any obstacle in life. The decision to join Big Impact Fitness has not only given me the chance to meet so many amazing people, but also challenged me in ways that I never thought were possible. The opportunities I have had here are endless and for that I can not thank everyone at Big Impact Fitness enough!"
"I have always been a competitive and athletic person who enjoyed working out, but after having two kids, finding time to workout was not easy. After having my second baby I knew that I wanted to get myself back into shape but I would need to make the most of my workouts.
This led me to Big Impact Fitness and their Warrior Workouts, where only five weeks after having my second child I would begin on my fitness journey. Brandon, Jake, and the rest of the Big Impact team instantly made me feel welcome, challenged me to push myself knowing my limitations, and never made me fell as though I was being compared to anyone else that was doing the same workout. With their unending support and encouragement, I would continue to work towards my goal of getting back to pre-baby weight in mind. I also had to keep my time frame realistic, after all, I had put on close to 80 pounds during each pregnancy. With the flexibility in times of the Warrior Workouts and the Big Impact team, I was able to commit to getting in three, 45-minute workouts in a week. After 10 months of workouts I am not sure that I will ever go back to the traditional “fitness center”. Between their workouts and watching my diet, I have lost all the weight plus some and I am fittest I have ever been in my adult life. I am not going to say that it was easy because it took hard work and dedication, but I will say that I do believe that I reached my fitness goal because the of the Big Impact team. I do not dread going to the gym anymore.
I look forward to my time at Big Impact Fitness each week not only because I know that I will get a great workout in, but because they know me by name, have taken the time to get to know me as a person, and I genuinely feel welcome."
"Big Impact is awesome! Brandon and his team have built a community where everyone’s welcome and we all share in our successes. Personally, Big Impact helped me make a lifestyle change, giving me direction and encouragement the whole way. If you’re looking for a great workout and even better community, Big Impact is the place. Many thanks to Brandon, Beau and Jake!"
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time.
