Here are the highlights for August, Boom!
#limitlesscrew vet Greg is continuing his weight loss journey with now over 25lbs lost in the last 8 weeks!
He’s also now at a lean 12% bodyfat, incredible work!
Debbie and Tricia, a #limitlesscrew power pair, just chopped over a full minute off of their duo cardio circuit in less than two months! I’m super proud of their consistent effort here each week and it’s definitely paying off!
Quick lunch break/sweat break workout for local company Pacific Eagle Electric today! What a way to break up the workday and get fitter, happier employees in the process!
I can’t wait to see what September brings, keep it up #limitlesscrew!
What a great month for Limitless and the Limitless crew! Here are some of the highlights:
Allie achieved a new record on her gut-busting core circuit. Breaking her record from 3 weeks ago by an entire 4 minutes!
On a side note, Allie also achieved her longtime goal of completing an unassisted chin up! Way to go!
It was a family affair at Limitless, with a 3 1/2 pack of clients. Great work to the Hardens!
New member of the Limitless crew, Veronica, increased her max burpees in 1min by 20% in 3 weeks! Look for more big improvements from Veronica in the near future with her continuing hard work!
In 6 months, limitless crew member Allie has gone from being able to complete a respectable 23 full pushups in one minute to now hammering out nearly TWICE that amount (42) in the same minute WITH her feet raised 2ft above the floor!
Great performances this month but I have a feeling that August will be bring even more awesomeness!
Lots of progress was made by the Limitless Crew this month! Check out some highlights:
Ryan brought his son, Camden, with him for a fun father/son conditioning session to start off his summer vacation!
After three full weeks of training here, John increased his max deadlift to 225lbs x 10reps (up 60lbs) and increased his dumbbell standing press to 50lbers x 10reps (up 15 lbs each arm).
Longtime client Josh increased his 2 rep max on bench press by 40lbs since this February!
Bryan more than tripled the amount of push ups he could do in less than 6 weeks!
Greg lost over 10 lbs this month! By making a few changes to his diet to compliment his intense circuit training, he is way closer to his goals!
Keep up the great work Limitless Crew, next month we’ll see what the females at Limitless can do!
At last the chaos of constructing, deconstructing and moving has slowed down enough for me to let the rest of the world know that Limitless has changed locations! So if we’ve been out of contact for a while and you’ve driven by the old location horrified that Limitless looked to be no more, don’t worry! We aren’t going anywhere! (Well, except for our new location)
No longer at the north end of Petaluma, we are now right in the heart of it. Across from whole foods on East Washington street is our new spot. Street and building signs will be up very soon and I am very excited at the opportunities that this new location will bring with it.
So if you haven’t checked out the new spot yet, come on by and say hi!
Nestor, Steve, and Shawn
Finally, Client of the Month is back and we’re making up for lost time with a solid three-pack to start off 2015!
These three guys have been coming to Limitless regularly two times a week since last year. Originally as a four pack (CJ is an honorable mention for client of the month this month), Nestor, Steve, and Shawn are good friends and roommates who decided to come by a couple times a week after work to up the intensity in their fitness routines and to help out with the sports they play like soccer and basketball.
The workout sessions are quick, 30 minute sessions filled with strength-training and athleticism-building circuits aimed to collapse them on the floor in a puddle of sweat by the end. Without a doubt it is working because every single time they revisit a circuit they’ve done before, they don’t just break their previous record, they shave whole minutes off their times! (What else would you expect with a crew who says that ultimate burpees and battleropes are their favorite exercises!)
Needless to say, I need to constantly create tougher and tougher workouts and exercises to keep up since there appears to be no slowing down in sight for them.
Who knows, If they keep this up we may have our first 2x COTMs by the end of the year!
Happy end of 2014 everyone, and what a year it was.
Most definitely this second year of business for Limitless has been a year of growth for me, both personally and professionally. The amount that I have been forced to learn and adapt to as a fitness trainer and especially as a business owner and entrepreneur has been great but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love it because as I look back, it is apparent just how far I’ve come. It excites me imagining where I will be and what I will feel like next year when I look back on 2015.
Limitless has matured substantially since 2013. It has developed from a dream, to a passion project, to now, a real business. Like I am all grown up or something. I have met numerous new people through Limitless this last year and I am eternally thankful for the clients who are still going strong since 2013 (each of which have achieved Client of The Month recognition I believe).
To everyone thinking about New Years resolutions, I invite you to resolve to invest in yourself in 2015. Not necessarily with money, but investing with time. It can be easy to get caught up in life and neglect you’re own health and well being. So pick up a book and start building a regular habit of reading. Get off that chair, pump out some pushups and squats once or twice a day. Change is always difficult and/or painful at first but the good news about building new habits is that the more you do them, the easier it is to keep them up!
Thank you for your support and I hope your 2015 is full of growth and prosperity!
It has been a long time coming for October’s Client of the Month, Dermot is one of the first clients to join Limitless back in mid 2013. He is also the other half of the Shailee-Dermot plank power-couple! (See the previous COTM). The two of them have been consistently coming in each week for well over a year and their dedication is paying off.
Dermot has an impressive list of accomplishments here at Limitless SCF including doubling the amount of times he can bench press 115lbs well into the double digits, 20% increase in pushups completed in one minute (to almost one per second!), and increasing the number and depth of squats completed in one minute. The accomplishment Dermot is most known for around the gym, however, is the max front plank. He has held the overall client record for front plank for nearly a full year now, bringing the record to a seemly unreachable 8 minutes, 2 seconds! His perseverance in setting and keeping this record has no doubt inspired many clients and opened their eyes up to what is possible.
Besides being a client, Dermot is also a good friend and mentor of mine. I learn at least as much from him in our sessions as he does from me. He is a huge support for me and I consider myself lucky to be able to see him every week.
When he’s not getting big bicep pumps and breaking plank records at Limitless SCF, Dermot works as a radio host and a highly recommended life coach as The Celtic Coach!
Here’s to smashing more records and working our way towards conquering that elusive 10 minute front plank!
“Brett has a vast knowledge of how the body works and how everything is connected. I know this because I love to learn new things, so I quiz him often. I would highly recommend Brett to anyone and everyone. He is a terrific fitness trainer and a truly wonderful person inside and out.”
