Rachel Stern, Wynnewood, PA

RachelBandASince I started with Performance Fitness, I can do plank push-ups and band assisted pull-ups [Editor’s note: Rachel couldn’t do a single pull up, not even with the heaviest assistance band, when she first started working on pull ups]. I have a pre-existing shoulder condition, and I’m now able to use that shoulder without fear.

Before I started with Performance Fitness, I thought my legs were strong from running, but I’ve actually found real strength since I’ve been training with weights and bodyweight exercises. I guess the most noticeable outward change is that I’ve lost over 23 pounds since October!
