I have managed to not only lose an additional 55lbs (110lbs total) since that time but have also packed on a significant amount of muscle mass.

How you may ask? The staff and owners of UPLIFT push each and every member to keep coming back, put in the work, and never give up.

I meet regularly with Jena for personal training sessions that focus on form and adding variety to my strength training program.

After several near-death surgeries and a heart attack at 29, I decided to get serious about my health and went from 278lbs to 181lbs in only six months. How? I built an entire team, including a personal trainer, nutritionist, psychologist, physical therapist, and sports masseuse. Having the same team as Hollywood stars allowed me to reach my goals fast and produce insane results.
