Megan Stringer’s member profile reads like many you’ll find at Fit4Lincoln and North Lincoln Fit Body Boot Camp: She came for a trial, and is now in it for the long run.
The 30-year-old Lincoln mom of 2 ½-year-old twins is among the latest members who are turning to owner Matt Priess’s two gyms and getting phenomenal results.
In Megan’s case, she went for the Girls Night Out Challenge, a six-week boot camp at the north Lincoln location in Belmont Plaza. The “challenge” lived up to its name, but the weight loss far outweighed the sacrifice. “Pretty mind-blowing, to be honest,” says Megan, whose previous experience at several Lincoln gyms had fallen far short of expectations.
She was tired of the “you’re-on-your-own” attitude she’d found at other gyms. It didn’t take long for her to discover the North Lincoln Fit Body Boot Camp was different – and addictive.
“The members encourage and push you, and the same can be said for the trainers and the owner,” she said. She found herself surrounded by folks who wanted to succeed as much as she did.
The results spoke for themselves. Hitting the gym 3-to-5 times per week, the Crete Carrier employee “won” the six-week challenge with some pretty eye-popping numbers, recording a 7.7% reduction in body-fat percentage, dropping 26 pounds of fat, and trimming 19 inches. And the “gain” she recorded was one she welcomed: 13 additional pounds of muscle.
Pretty exciting stuff for a mom whose motivation was to have her kids share in her improved condition.
Completing a second six-week challenge a month ago, she said the tale of the tape revealed continued progress: more reductions in inches (6), pounds (6) and a lower body-fat percentage (3.5%) while gaining 4 more pounds of muscle.
