MAC Member Spotlight - Sandra Reynolds

In October of 2017 I was tired of being overweight and depressed. Nothing fit right, I hated the way I looked. I felt like my prime had passed. I decided to take control. I joined MAC...and it changed my life.

I read an article which indicated you lose about a percent of muscle mass annually after age 35. So I joined a small gym in the Toledo area about 6 years ago and was surprised how little I could lift … not that I could ever lift much of anything!  So before going the Silver Sneakers route, I thought I would try some of the other classes.  They were tough but the instructors and classmates were very encouraging (as they are at the MAC!).

July Member Spotlight - Joel Iocey

Like many people, I believed this would always be the case, however when I hit my forties I discovered I was wrong. In my youth I had acquired some bad habits, smoking, poor diet etc... These bad habits caught up with me. I was getting the "love handles" and if I tried to exercise, it was difficult because I couldn't breathe due to my smoking.

April Member Spotlight - Ully M.

"The doctors and the nurses were convinced that if I was not in as good shape as I was, I would not have survived any of it. All of the weight training with machines and class workouts really paid off in the most amazing way."

"Each month, the weight kept falling off.  After 100+ pounds lost in 1 year, I can’t say enough about CrossFit and the changes is has made in my life.  I went from a XXXL size 22 to a M and size 10-12 in 1 year.  I am no longer pre-diabetic, I don’t count calories and my metabolism actually burns now."

November Member Spotlight - Liz & Aaron

"Working out isn’t a short term goal.  It is a lifelong commitment. It takes time and there is no quick fix or magical pill.  You just have to keep pushing yourself and set new goals.  When you plateau, do something different and don’t quit.  Keep it exciting, change it up, find what works for you!  God gave you one body.  Take care of it the best of your ability and it’ll take care of you."

September Member Spotlight - David E.

"I have been a single parent of two awesome girls all these years and have still found a way to train 5 to 6 days a week. I train because it makes me feel good. I believe that if you feel good about yourself, it leads to a positive attitude and in return makes you more of a pleasant person to be around."

MAC Member Spotlight - Mark F.

It is not easy, but anyone and everyone can make significant change in their lifestyle. Like so many things, I had to decide for myself to make a change before anybody or anything could help me.  There are virtually unlimited people and resources waiting and willing to help, but it simply could not work until I made the decision to change.

My best pieces of advice are:

1-     If your goal is fat loss, ensure that strength training is the primary focus of your exercise routine.  A common misconception (especially among women) is that you need to do more cardio to burn more calories, which will translate to fat loss.  The truth is, the positive metabolic effect of added muscle will trump the temporary calorie burn from cardio EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

When I decided to make the commitment to join MAC, it is was more about trying to extend my life by getting healthy. In 2014, I had a stroke, and afterwards I had to learn to use my left side again. On top of the stroke, I had been gaining weight over the years.

Marla's Amazing Journey

After sustaining a rare and complex spinal cord injury in August 2013, I had a barrage of 12 doctors in 6 states having a field day with my case. They offered little hope for recovery, few options for pain control and surgical options that were high risk for paralysis.
