Boot Camper of the Month

I had a baby almost two years ago, and this August I finally decided it's time to lose my "baby weight!" I started dieting and exercising on my own but it just wasn't cutting it. A friend of mine, told me about this "amazing" bootcamp at samson's and of course I was like yeah right, I could Never do that, not to mention that the mere thought of bootcamp terrified me! But, I finally got the courage to try it and I haven't stopped ever since! My first time was tough, I was definitely feeling it for a few days afterwards, but each time after that it hurt less and less. It's like a drug for me now and it's truly the only "gym" I've ever looked forward to going to. The trainers are all awesome! They are there to work you, but they also now how to motivate you and they keep it fun! It's never the same workout twice, thats what I love! I've lost 33lbs to date! I feel amazing and I have so much energy now! I would like to say a special thanks to Tony for helping me transform my body into it's best shape ever! Thank you for always being positive, keeping me motivated, and pushing me to be my best! You rock!!!!

More Success

Thank You Samson Strength and Conditioning for helping me reach my goals. I have never felt in better shape than I am now. This amazing transformation started 9 months ago. I weighed 218 lbs., wore a size 38, and was a few months away from turning 29 years old and thought to myself that I need to get into shape before I turned 30. My wife, Trish, had been going to your gym for a few months and I was watching her lose fat and build muscle. She kept telling me to go but I was always to busy or had some kind of excuse. I had been dieting and was losing some weight but once I combined training at your gym with dieting I really started to notice it. Everyone (myself included) always thinks that they can just go to their gym and work out and that will do the job. But I must say your program definitely has different exercises than I would normally do. Plus, you don’t even have to think about what you are going to do next. Your whole workout plan with your exercise, reps, set is all laid out for you, and you always have someone there pushing you even further. Not only was I losing fat, I was also building muscle. Now that I have met my goals I keep setting new ones. Currently I have lost 43 lbs and weigh 175 lbs. I wear a size 32 and feel more confident than I ever have. I can’t remember the last time I was this size (even in High school while playing football I wore a size 34). Once you’ve been going there for a few weeks and start seeing things change it really becomes addicting. Thank you Tony for helping me make this transformation, I cant ever imagine not being a part of the family at Samson S&C. I look forward to meeting my new goals, and who knows maybe even go beyond them.

Lost 75lbs in 6 Months

Dear Tony i would like to thank you and Samson S&C for helping me achieve all of my goals. Not only did you help me lose weight. But also helped me get stronger, faster and much more confident in myself. My whole life i was never happy with my weight, i ate unhealthy and never had the willpower to workout. At one point of time i weighed up to 280 pounds!! You have helped me get down to a solid 195 pounds!! I haven't been down to that weight since like the 5th grade lol... To me Samson is one of the best programs i have ever been apart of. Everyday i look forward to working out. And i have never felt so healthy and in-shape in my life. Thank you for all the time and effort that you have put into helping me reach all of my goals.
