Andy Jordan (South Houston Location): For almost a decade before coming to Life Fit I lived a defeated life. A series of substantial tendon and muscle tears had left me broken and depressed. I was living with an “I can’t attitude” and the more I focused on what I couldn’t do the less I did resulting in substantial weight gain, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and muscles so deteriorated they felt as if they would snap at any moment. I would see activities like CrossFit, skiing, climbing, biking and the Olympics on TV and just be heartbroken that I “couldn’t” do these thing anymore. I was miserable and even though I hid it very well the truth was I was dying inside a little every day! In the summer of 2015 I was driving down Fuqua heading to a meeting when I saw a bunch of people in the parking lot flipping tires. I said to myself with a tremendous amount of jealously and sadness “I wish I could do that stuff”. I knew it would be good for me, I knew it would help me feel better but I was so lost I just couldn’t bring myself to stop in. After all what was the point, “I couldn’t do it”, “I would just get hurt again”, “I might be embarrassed”, you name it and I had a reason not to stop. Thankfully the Lord is more patient than I. Over the next nine months every single time I would drive down Fuqua something in my heart and soul kept nudging and telling me to stop in. Finally on April 4th 2016 I could no longer resist that nudge in my heart and I had to stop. I entered Life Fit not knowing what to expect but this smiling bundle of energy came up to me and said “Hi, I’m Viviana how can I help you?" I remember just looking at her and saying I’m broke and I need help (whew this is harder than I thought)……She says "I got you, let me introduce you to my brother Fabian". I told Fabian my story, I told him I did not want to live with an "I can’t attitude" but I needed he and his team's to help me find out WHAT I CAN DO! He immediately started to go through his philosophy, talking about where we could start, how we could modify every exercise if needed. He told me about this amazing team that he had assembled and the fantastic people that worked out here and how we could do this together. Let me just say I was hooked. I was introduced to some of our awesome members that day and I signed up for 6months unlimited before I left. April 7th 2016 was my first workout and I like to say it was the day I started to live again! I am so blessed and fortunate that God led me to this place! I love the people here, I love every trainer I have worked with and I miss every single member when I am out of town and miss a class. Life Fit has helped me regain an “I can attitude” and I am eternally thankful. My diabetes and blood pressure are under control and my weight is dropping. I get asked by a lot of people how many inches I have lost or much weight I have lost and while it is substantial it is not my main concern. I am not trying to achieve a certain amount in a certain time but rather enjoying getting a little better, a little stronger and a little healthier “one rep, one set, one day at a time”! My journey has only just begun and with this amazing group of people it is the journey of a Lifetime! So I would like to thank my Life Fit Family and my Lord above for joining me and guiding me in this wonderful journey, you are all truly a blessing!
Alyssa Sandoval (South Houston Location): My fitness journey began 3 months after having my son. I started off slow by going 3x a week. When I started, I had the mindset that I wasn't badly out of shape but Lifefit workouts proved me wrong. I kept going and kept learning about fitness. Eventually, I started going everyday, 6 days a week. That's when I felt like I really unlocked potential for myself. I was becoming so much healthier and stronger. I was in the best shape I had ever been in. It just so happen that during that time of my life I was also enlisting into the navy. With the help of some trainers they would run with me after morning workouts, push and encourage me. In no time I was working out 2x a day 6 days a week. The gym was definitely life for me and I loved it. Everyday I am getting stronger and learning more about my body.
Delia Espinoza (South Houston location): It was almost 4 years ago that I was at a very devastating time in my life; going through the heart ache of divorce after 29 years of marriage. Pondering on all the why's; and what was wrong with me! My first thought was I'm fat and I need to lose weight; so I go to a diet doctor to get weight loss pills. Instead I was given medication for high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol! I blame the ex-husband! Lol....
My friend Stephanie Silva-Belle asked if I wanted to go with her to zumba. Who would have known; that what the enemy took for bad that my God turned it around for good! It was then 2013 that I met Fabian Villarreal with Life Fit. I will never forget that day after zumba class "hey, would y'all be interested in boot camp"? Super excited I said yes and my friend just stared at me. I barely could make it that first couple of days. I told my friend "I don't think this is for me! But, if you push me I'll go! My girl pushed me and I've been with Life Fit every since.
It's been a life changing experience and journey for me. I never in this world thought I would every be where I am today! I feel great and I feel good about myself. I am a work in progress God's not finish with me yet! I thank God for giving me strength because without him I couldn't / wouldn't do it! I love the atmosphere at Life Fit, the staff is amazing, caring and helpful. The trainers have great instruction and details making sure you've got the right form at each station. Everyone helping everyone. I just love the members of my new life fit family!
I encourage anyone looking for a gym this is the place to be! Listed in the top 10 in Houston! God is doing great thing here.....
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
For nothing will be impossible with God

William Marroquin (South Houston Location): I joined Life Fit Gym June 1st 2016 just to try it out. Right after the first workout I was beat but wanted more and more. The Life Fit crew is a great team and helps you so much to accomplish any goal you make of your own. Great workout routines and even how to eat better, which is a major factor with living a healthier lifestyle. I make time to get my daily workout complete. Having to run my own business takes a lot of my time, but I will not put that as an excuse to "I'll just go tomorrow". I have more energy, I feel younger, outdoor activities are fun now and I'm able to keep up. I have broken the barrier of many bad habits which include lack of exercise and of course eating. I don't eat perfect BUT I'm aware of what good and bad. It was a struggle at first but once the ball is rolling you become adjusted to it where it becomes a part of your lifestyle. My daily commute to attend LIFE FIT GYM at the 5am class is 1 hour, coming from Katy, TX. I wouldn't change it at all. All the people are great motivation and always help out as well. And this is only the beginning!

'I remember when Carlos Zapata started Life Fit, he weighted 186 pounds, now he weights 156 pounds and is feeling lean and clean. When he arrived at Life Fit Gym his body ached, had shoulder and knee problems and as soon as he started to become active he started to feel a lot better, the pain went away. Look at his results! ~Fabian V

Viviana Villarreal (South Houston Location): When my brother Fabian opened up Life Fit in July 2011. I remember thinking to myself thank god I wasn’t worried about my weight even though I know I should be. He pushed and pushed me to no Avail I was set in my ways of unhealthy eating and not wanting to exercise. I remember making up any excuse so that I didn’t have to get up in the morning and go workout. It got to the point that every time someone brought up my weight and the fact that I didn’t work out even though my brother owned a gym. I would get offended and walk away. Fabian for years tried to get me into the gym and fall in love with Fitness just like he had. I just rebelled harder! It got to the point my mom would force me to go workout and of course I rebelled by not working out to my full potential.
This cycle lasted for four years I would start to lost weight and then something would come up and I would fall off, But no matter how many times I would have to start from the beginning My brother was always there to help me get started again. He had not given up on me like I gave up on myself over and over again. In 2015 I made the decision that I would not stop! This time I would get down to the weight that I wanted to be, I was tired of letting my brother down. Knowing that I could do it I was just being lazy. 2015 I hit the ground running and started to get more involved with the workouts at the gym. I remember working out next to the members at the 5am and feeling the support that the members have for one another and more importantly the support Trainers have for the members. With the continuing support of my brother who was my biggest supporter as I started the journey to not only losing weight but also changing my life style, He advised me, he supported me but he was also my biggest motivator when I wanted to give up and when I would hit my plateau where I would no longer lose weight he would help me figure out what I was missing so that I could continue with my journey. After five years of trying he was able to break through to me because of his passion of helping people make life style changes. Here we are in December of 2016 and my only regret was that I didn’t listen to him sooner!
Ana Salinas (South Houston Location): I want to share my weight loss journey to let y'all know that it is possible! It all depends on how bad do you really want it?! I'm very proud to say that I have come a long way and it hasn't been easy but it has been so worth it! I want to thank my trainers at Life Fit Gym for the support they give me , for pushing me to reach my body goals I thought I would never reach! The team work and people I have met have been a big motivation that pushes me on days that I don't feel like going. I love and enjoy my workouts, the results, the transformation, I absolutely love it! I feel safe and comfortable when I workout at 5 in the morning knowing that I'm wit a group of people who go and do the same thing I do, PUSH and WORKOUT!! I train 5-6 days a week 1 hour a day is doable, you just need to push hard! I have two kids, I'm a mom, wife, and have a full time job. My days starts at 4:00AM, Sounds crazy, but your body gets use to it! Your body achieves what your mind believes! Clean eating is a must to definitely see good results but it became a big part of my lifestyle. I have a little over a year at Life Fit Gym and have seen amazing results. Went from a Medium size to an Extra Small. Lost a lot of inches and body fat and definitely gained lean muscle

Dora Valdez (South Houston Location) In Spring of 2011 I sat down with Fabian and we came out with a schedule of training 3 days a week. We would meet a local park and he would train me as my personal trainer, that was the true beginning of Life Fit Gym. We met 3 days a week at that park until he opened his first location on Fuqua in July. I weighed in at 265 that summer of 2011. In the beginning I felt soar and hated it but it was something I knew I had to do it for myself. By the end of 2012 I had already passed the 200lb mark and continued to lose weight, by mid 2013 I had reached 170lbs and decided to take a break from Life Fit, but not from working out. I continued to work out daily (mainly cardio) and I kept my weight off but never saw any major improvements or change since I took my break. Early 2016, after talking to Fabian I decided to come back to Life Fit. I also joined the Muay Thai class that was available, I’ve seen my body change dramatically – I’ve lost more fat and gained muscle. My body is leaner and more toned more than it has ever been. It has been a journey but one that I’m thankful for! I couldn’t have done it without Fabian and the amazing staff at Life Fit Gym”

Norma Morales (South Location): My journey started in 2013 that’s when I started going to Lift fit. I always struggled with my weight. I started Life Fit weighing 200 pounds I was not seeing a differences just going to a regular gym and doing Zumba classes and etc. Life Fit has changed me so much. Fabian is the owner of the gym and one of the trainers. I have not seen a trainer that cares so much about your health. Fabian is not the only one there that cares about you George is the other awesome trainer that always ask you HOW MUCH WATER DID YOU INTAKE TODAY AND HOW MANY HOURS DID YOU SLEEP? Little things like that matter, you may not think so, but all that counts a lot. I am a 5am breakfast club LF person sometimes 6:30pm but I like to go in the morning because I have energy all day at work. People tell me that I am crazy, its hard in the beginning but once you start going and you do to stop your body automatically wakes up early. Sometimes I do it twice and they tell me that I am really crazy but I love it. I want to thank Fabian and his wonderful staff for pushing me so much and getting my results. People be patient, you will get your results! You may not get it in one month or two it can take a year or two until you get the results you want.

Stephanie Bluth (Spring Location): I found new motivation at Life Fit Gym. I had tried other gyms with similar concepts but Life Fit Gym is by far the most professional and dedicated to the success of its members. My weight loss and muscle gain had plateaued for over 3 months and with just 6 weeks at Life Fit Gym I have already achieved several of my goals. I have built relationships with all of the trainers and together we have built a program that has already yielded amazing results. The support I received during my first challenge led to 7 inches lost in just 6 weeks. I know that the sky is the limit and my body will only get stronger. Life Fit Gym is truly helping me build a lifestyle around fitness and healthy habits.
