s a 52-year-old postmenopausal woman I lost 19.4 pounds and 27 inches in the 2015 Obsidian Challenge. Combining three sessions a week and carefully following the provided nutrition guidelines the pounds and inches steadily came off. It was thrilling! Knowledgeable and encouraging instructors lead classes on a new low impact head to toe workout each week. There was no boredom in the warm up, balance moves, core work, cardio sprints on the slide board or compound movements with weights. Variety is the spice of life and you get a generous portion each session and a great sweat! I could literally feel myself becoming more lean and strong from week to week even though I would often step onto the carpet to do an optional move utilizing good form. Age is not a factor for success. Obsidian is the best thing that I did for myself in 2015 and I recommend it to anyone looking for better health of body and mind.
Thank you Lacey and the Obsidian Fitness team. Your studio is a positive and empowering place and it has changed my life.
I love to exercise.. I always have, but after getting married several years ago life became focused on a career, then kids, I didn’t make exercise and health a priority. I went through two rounds of In Vitro for my two oldest children and the hormones did not help with my weight. I have never been a big person so I really struggled when I was having a difficult time losing the baby weight. I lost some weight after my second child with tracking my diet and I started taking step classes at Obsidian Fitness but I was not as committed as I should have been and the weight loss was short lived. We were surprised with a third child 2 years ago and I decided after he was born I needed to refocus on myself and my health. Obsidian has not only helped me lose the baby weight but my body has changed, I am in better physical shape than I have been since college. My husband, family and friends have been very supportive. I now take time every week to attend 4-5 Obsidian or studio classes. I just finished the Holiday challenge and lost 20 lbs and 18 inches. I have never felt better, my body is strong and I am a better wife and mother. Obsidian works, it is now part of my life and routine – I wouldn’t have it any other way!Rebecca
After spending nearly a decade pursuing a career in medicine I achieved my goal of becoming a young physician. The only problem was that I didn’t feel young. I felt tired and exhausted. With some encouragement from my wife I decided to join “her gym.” At first I was skeptical, another benefit of a career in medicine about joining a gym…but Obsidian Fitness wasn’t like other gyms I’d joined before. I jumped into an 6 week challenge and the weight started to melt away but more importantly I had more energy. At the core of my new work regimen was Obsidian, a total body work out like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. Now after nearly 6 months of working out at Obsidian Fitness and doing Obsidian twice a week I’m in the best shape of my life and continually challenged by the work outs. The staff is knowledgeable, encouraging, and supportive. I would recommend Obsidian Fitness to my friends, family and patients. If you want your life and health back then get to Obsidian Fitness and take it back.Matt
I came to Obsidian Fitness at a time when my body and mind needed it most. I was stagnating after having already lost 100 pounds and needing to lose another 50 just to get to a healthy BMI. ObsidianFitness was critical to me losing another 25 pounds, of what I consider hard pounds and weight to lose! Lacey and her team of top athletic instructors gave my body the perfect workout to mix up what was becoming a stagnant routine. The obsidian board makes exercise fun, but it is efficient so a just a quick workout gets long-lasting results. The weight lifting, strength training and pure cardio classes were fun and efficient. I got in and out in an hour but week after week I saw the number on the scale go down without having to workout hours a day. I enjoyed Lacey’s personal coaching style and her recommendations. She was spot on in her advice for health, nutrition and mental plateaus, helping my overall journey feel directed. I love Lacey, her team and the ObsidianFitness gym. It’s a place that feels like home.
Thanks ObsidianFitness!Alissa Owen
