What does a normal day look like for you?

I work Monday through Friday – 9 to 5. I sit in an office all day. To get to work, I sit in traffic for a minimum of 3 hours a day, sometimes more. I rush home. I take care of my dog; I let her out, feed her and get ready and change for my Alloy class. On Monday night, I take ROW and FLOW at 7:20. I come home, I eat a healthy meal – created using guidelines Alloy has taught me – and I get approximately 6-8 hours’ sleep every night.

Why do you work out?

What benefits do you receive from it? I work out because there are many benefits. One: it makes me stronger. Two: I feel better and I have more energy to do all the things I want to do. Three: It makes me look good and, therefore, I feel better about myself in general.

Why do you come to Alloy?

Because at Alloy, with the help of Tina and Michaela, I have learned that high intensity training combined with lifting weights — is HOW YOU LOSE BODY FAT!!!! It’s called: Metabolic Conditioning!! Michaela likes to refer to it as “MAGIC” and I would have to agree.

How is Alloy different than other gyms or studios you have been to?

Because Alloy cares about YOU! The team at Alloy wants you to succeed. Let’s face it. These girls/guys are totally fit; doing 3 and 4 classes a day, sometimes more. Do they care if you don’t come to class. . .. YES, they do!! Do they care if you don’t lose weight. . . .. YES, they do!! These guys are here to help US attain our goals. At Alloy, the team is so MOTIVATIONAL. When I am spinning or lifting weights and I am watching Tina, Michaela, or Rick teach us classes . . . I am inspired to be like them because they are fit, they are strong, they look good and they are healthy. Everything, I want to be!!

What is your favorite Alloy class? Why?

It’s hard for me to pick my favorite class at Alloy. I like them all and all for various reasons. I love the rowing for the muscles in my back. I like the kettlebells for the muscles in my arms. And, I really like the Pilates for Athletes because it works the core and has some great stretching techniques for the entire body.

Have you experienced any tangible benefits since joining Alloy, ie. weight loss, compliments from friends, inches lost, more energy, etc.

For the past year, I have consistently been 140 lbs. When I started, I was already lean but could not get rid of the body fat around my mid- section, near the front of my arm pits, etc. It has taken me a lot of hard work and it is starting to pay off.

Since I started working out at Alloy, I have lost approximately 15 pounds and 4 % body fat. I have the figure I had when I was in my 20’s and my family and friends have noticed and give me compliments. These workouts have transformed my body! I not only look good, I feel GREAT!! I will continue to work out at Alloy Fitness because it has made me STRONGER in every aspect!

Alloy’s nutrition program has played a big part in my success. The program has taught me to eat the right foods at the right time. It’s not a crash diet, it’s now my way of life.

What does a normal day look like for you?

Weekdays I wake up at 4:30AM and head to Alloy to take a class or strength train with Michaela. After getting my ass kicked, I go to work feeling ready and energized for the day!

Why do you work out?

Many different reasons…mostly to be healthy and strong! Secondly, look and feel good. Love the energy it gives me.

Why do you come to Alloy?

It’s the combination of challenging classes and knowledgeable trainers. The class size also helps ensure I have good form and avoid injury. I love that the classes incorporate strength training and cardio so my time is maximized!

How is Alloy different than other gyms or studios you have been to?

The instructors push you, but prioritize proper form…I feel like they really care about my progress.

How do you feel after an Alloy class?

Like a badass! I feel really strong and can take on the day!

What is your favorite Alloy class? Why?

IronRyde… Combo cardio and strength training…Music is always great. You can tell the instructors spend a lot of time picking music and choreographing the workout to it! It’s so motivating.

Have you achieved any fitness goals recently (ie. Ran a race, did well in sports, etc.)?

I recently went on a hike to the Blue Hills….the last time I hiked it, I was extremely out of breath and had to rest often. Now, it seems more like a challenging walk than a hike. I also can now do 15 pushups! That’s a lot for me!

Have you experienced any tangible benefits since joining Alloy?

I am stronger, move better, injury free, and my resting heart rate has dropped by 25 bpm, I’ve lost almost 25 pounds since I climbed Machu Picchu last October and have gone from a size 12 to squeezing (baking muffin tops) back into my size 4 jeans (I am comfortably between a 4 and a 6). Exercising and being strong has helped me overcome back pain, foot pain, and given me tons of energy.

Q: Why do you work out?

Working out is a mental stress reliever for me. That’s why I like to work out early in the morning. It clears my head, improves my overall mood and helps me focus at work.

Q: What does a normal day look like for you?

A normal day for begins at 4:40am. My fiancé and I drive to Alloy for an unbelievable hour-long workout. I love working out in the morning because it allows me to get SO much stuff done after work. I have the time and energy to take care of everything at home and hang out with my friends because I got my workout done by 6:30 am.

The Alloy effect on my mood is apparent immediately. When we get up, my fiancé and I drive together and do not say one word to each other because we’re tired and cranky. After working out with Tina or Michaela, we are both in the BEST mood, blast the radio and get fired up for the day. It is a great start to our day!

Q: Why do you come to Alloy?

My sister Michaela got me in the door at Alloy. I am getting married in September and wanted to feel and look my best for my wedding. Between her constant support, along with both Tina and Liz, I find myself looking forward to my workouts which is a first for me. I come back to Alloy each day because it is a positive, fun environment with an extremely motivating team.

One of my biggest goals when joining Alloy was to become stronger. In just two short months, I have already achieved that goal. I could barely do a push up when I started and now I am up on my toes completing an insane amount of push-ups each week. My family and friends can already notice a difference but, most importantly, I can see and feel a difference in myself. I feel the best I have felt my whole life and have Alloy to thank for that!

Q: How is Alloy different than other gyms or studios you have been to?

I have tried SO many different gyms, studios and programs and Alloy has been my favorite. Alloy’s trainers push me to a level that I never thought I could achieve. Since starting at Alloy, I’ve noticed my strength rising quickly as well as a positive change in my attitude. And I keep getting better! Alloy’s classes keep pushing me to become stronger and more fit which helps me see more and more results.

Q: What is your favorite Alloy class?

I love IronOAR and IronRYDE. These classes are no joke and the perfect combination of either rowing or cycling and strength training. I leave both these classes soaked in sweat and feeling so strong! We use kettle bells, the TRX system and a ton of burpees to get in a serious workout this morning.

I also love Row and Flow. I usually take this on Thursday mornings after 3 or 4 days of working out hard. It is SO needed and allows my body to recover from the intense workouts I have done that week.

RYDE45 is also a killer workout done in just 45 minutes. I take this Monday morning. It is a great start to my week and sometimes a great way to recover from the weekend. Ok, so I guess I love them all!
