Well, I too need to get over being shy, so here is my fitness story. Bryan, I had said I was never going to post these on fb, but gotta just do it! Just like my first bootcamp class at the Inferno back in 2010 (approximately that time) on Provincial Road. I needed to do something about my weight for some time, I was weighing in at approximately 360 lbs, the year prior. At that time, I needed to get over being shy about coming in and doing a class by myself, nobody would join me! I was meeting people who were at the same fitness level that I was at, getting a fantastic workout and sometimes not able to make it to the end of some classes, but that was in the beginning! Well, after my first few classes, I was hooked! Fast forward to 2012, I got injured, found out I have severe osteoarthritis in my knee and had severely damaged my meniscus, great! Doctor informed me that I should consider swimming and not continue with any bootcamp classes, avoid stairs and wear a knee brace if I wanted to do any activities. Hmmm, well, I didn’t listen to my doctor, entirely. 🙂 I continued with boxing classes and TRX, avoided any jumping, running, squats, bootcamp classes, and wore my knee brace during classes. Bryan worked with me by giving me alternatives to what he was instructing so that I could at least do something and get a good work out in. I didn’t want to leave the Inferno! Fast forward to December 2015 to January 2016, Bryan introduced personal training. I thought about it, was scared to death to try it. It was only 6 sessions at that time, how hard could it be? Yeah right, not going to lie, it hurt like hell to walk the next day, pick up my coffee cup and even blow dry my hair! But, during that time, Bryan worked with me, pushing me to get that “give me one more good one” in and suggested that I didn’t need to wear my knee brace any more. It was tough, but I was going to do it, at least finish the 6 sessions! I stopped wearing my knee brace back in January 2016. Fast forward to today, I am continuing with group personal training, which I just love my group (Leah, Jim, Alida, Beth, and Cathy) and TRX. Slowly getting stronger, able to walk the next morning (most days, depending on what Bryan has up his sleeve!), jogging during the warm ups, some squats, step-ups on the box, even with both feet at the same time! I am getting closer to losing ½ of me, still more to go! 🙂 The pictures were taken in July 2015 and August 2016. During that time, I lost 4 inches in my chest, 3.5 inches in my waist, 9 lbs, 3.5% fat loss and gained 2.5% muscle. Since I began this journey in 2010, to date I’ve lost approximately 166 lbs. and still going! I cannot THANK you enough Bryan, you ROCK! 🙂 For the continuous great training and always getting that f#@%^&* extra one in! The Inferno is the place to be for anyone’s fitness journey, great classes, trainers, atmosphere and great warriors!

My fitness story: Okay- I am not usually the type to share my story but in the spirit of inspiring someone who may need it… here goes. I started coming to the inferno in November 2015. I was literally shaking with nerves as I walked through the door and lovely sparkly Tara greeted me so warmly. I had never been the type of person who worked out or went to any gym and my intention was for a short term weight loss fix- 3 months and done kind of thing. That first boot camp was really intense and I remember feeling really vulnerable and embarrassed about my fitness level but then Shannon came over to demonstrate a few things and offer some kind words. As I was leaving that morning I said to Bryan “that was really difficult” and he responded “yeah, but you did it!” Fast forward a year and a half and its safe to say this gym… Read more “Katie M.”
I have been going to Bryan’s for a lonnnng time…since he had just started at Provincial and the classes were small (maybe 4 or 5 yrs? I dunno how long it’s been lol). At first I was MAJORLY intimidated! I am a plus sized gal and the words ‘boot camp’ to me just screamed “you gotta be fit to do this”. But, I figured I’d give it a try and go at my own pace. I didn’t do everything (I still fizzle out in sets & do the lower impact for a lot of exercises), but I got thru it and was hooked…and so was everyone else! I watched the classes quickly grow in size and was proud to be part of the successes of the Inferno. I WILL be the ‘reality check’ voice for you though and say it begins with you. Over the years, in true Samantha fashion, I have yo yo’d in weight and when I am… Read more “Samantha Q.”

Ok here it goes ! I have been debating to post this for a while ! I started this journey over a year ago with so many doubts and excuses as I had tried every diet in the book in the past and never worked ! I never saw myself as fat and to those who know me they know how much I lack confidence 😂when I was forced to try the inferno from my dear and close friend , I had no idea what to expect and I had no goals I just knew that I needed a change as my unhealthiness was affecting my every day life ! As we were greeted by Bryan he said we should try it for a couple of days , we started that day and when we were stretching after the warm up I turned to my friend and asked if we were done lol ! I don’t think I did 10%… Read more “Alida”
Bryan’s Fitness Inferno – regardless of its daunting name – has been a safe haven for my umpteenth attempt to stay fit. I have always struggled with poor eating habits and maintaining the motivation to practice an active lifestyle. Years of gym memberships, workout videos, diet fads, etc., proved ineffective and I wasn’t able to commit for an extended period of time. Bryan’s is the first fitness venture I’ve committed to for over two years. The body transformations and results are addicting. The atmosphere is electric. The fellow members and trainers are inspirational and embrace your efforts by sharing their own journeys. I have never felt so welcomed and met such energetic people in our city. You would never think I could walk out of a place dripping sweat and limping to my car all with a smile on my face. I owe my discovery of Bryan’s to my best friend that is more or less an addict of this… Read more “Sandra”
