Cheryl Rapp was a founding member and has been kicking booty with us ever since. Cheryl inspires us everyday, even on days when we might be a bit low energy, to step up, and give everything we’ve got. We all need a little motivation now and then and we appreciate her tenacity to show up every single time.
Following a car accident about a decade ago, she was restricted from favorite physical activities like lifting weights and running which led to a sedentary lifestyle. “I became a couch potato, gained 10 pounds, and could not fit into my favorite pair of jeans. Once the restrictions were lifted I immediately wanted help losing weight and developing a weight training routine. I sought out a trainer who challenged me to run better and workout harder. With [Dave’s]… help I have achieved goals I never thought possible!”
One of the many things we love about Cheryl is that she understands the value of training with a professional who recognizes the individual needs of each client. “Working with Dave has helped keep me centered. When work stress is high, Dave has helped by giving training routines that focus my mind on my workout. This eases the stress all while producing results! Without Dave’s strength training, I don’t think I could have completed a marathon with a personal best finishing time!”
Exercise is an integral part of not just physical but mental health. Getting into the gym and doing the work makes us calmer while boosting our self-esteem. Cheryl has seen the benefits in a very quantifiable way. When she was sedentary, she felt poorly but once she got moving again after the doctor’s go ahead she felt better than ever. “I have learned that the only obstacles getting in my way of achieving more fitness goals are personal struggles with self-confidence and determination.”
“Dave is a hard working trainer who shows genuine enjoyment with his job/gym and helping others achieve goals. No other trainer I’ve had sends personal shout-outs in the middle of the day. These messages are much needed confidence boosters.” A big thank you to Cheryl for working so hard on her personal goals and for letting us be her guide. We are honored for the opportunity
. She is the kind of member that we hope all our clients aspire to be.
