“I’d like to start by thanking the little people (Nick and my wife Jana) and previous spotlight members that have encouraged me along the way. Jana has been coming to the WC for a very long time (never a spotlight member however…just saying) and finally convinced me to try it when the GE Road gym opened. Nick took it from there and has continuously challenged me but always in a fun way. The people you meet and workout with also make it fun. While the before and after pictures may not look a whole lot different, I know I am stronger and healthier for making the small commitment of time to working out. I will miss the friendly banter with Nick when he leaves but am sure the other trainers will keep me coming back as well.” ~Rusty Schopp

 
“Rusty has been the poster boy of GE small groups ever since we opened, and we couldn’t ask for a better example. He has been an extremely consistent client and only skips his sessions if he’s at a Cubs game. His work ethic and good attitude make him a pleasure to train and a great example for new clients. Over the last year he has gained tremendously in strength, endurance, and mobility which shows how willing he is to push himself during class. Rusty also knows every person in Bloomington-Normal which makes new clients feel more welcome as they start their own fitness journeys. I have no doubt that Rusty will continue his hard work and consistency at the Workout Company even as I abandon him to live in the woods.” ~Trainer Nick Cellini

“I really like Team Training because of the camaraderie between the participants and the trainers. The trainings are always different and challenging.” ~Randy Asper

 
“Randy is always great to have in a Team Training. He pushes himself and works hard while keeping everyone laughing. Team Trainings are definitely quieter when Randy isn’t there!” ~Director of Training Maddie

“I joined the Workout Company just over a year ago after completing a 21-day program. At that time, I had not been exercising regularly and had a minor health issue. I felt unhealthy and tired. I thought that I preferred to work out alone and not at a gym, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I was sold on the Alloy training classes and the positive, friendly atmosphere. The Workout Company helped me figure out how to fit consistent exercise into my life again. I am typically not a morning person, so I am so thrilled to have found classes that motivate me to get up early! I enjoy the people that have become my workout friends, and appreciate all of the wonderful instructors who encourage me to do more than I think I can. I am thankful for the Workout Company because I am much healthier, stronger, and happier today.” ~Jen Woodward

“Jen is very deserving of the Member Spotlight. From day one, she has been extremely consistent in both her attendance and her effort. She challenges herself each time, and has always been willing to try new movements, including wall walks and handstand holds :-) Many times, you can find her among a small group of members sticking around after the training sessions are over, putting in some additional work. Awhile back, as we were chatting after a 5am training, Jen shared with us what her journey has been like since the 21 Day Challenge about a year or so ago. Something that stuck out to me was how she articulated the positive way that her fitness routine made her feel. I think that’s an important aspect of this journey, and that particular mindset is very inspiring to others. So “Thank you” Jen, for being a great team training member. I appreciate you being a part of The Workout Company Training Club…even when you were horrified when we moved our training time from 5:15am to 5am :-)” ~Trainer JK

 “The Workout Company makes going to the gym fun. Ever since joining I’ve noticed how much stronger I’ve become compared to when I first walked in the door. Since joining I’ve lost 20lbs and have dropped two shirt/pant sizes.” ~Laura Williamson

“Having Laura in class is always such a joy. She gives her best effort every time she comes and always comes in with a positive attitude. I’ve seen amazing gains in Laura’s fitness level compared to the first time I trained her to where she is now. Keep up the great work Laura!” ~Trainer Allie Ploense

“When I decided that my job just wasn’t doing it for me in the fitness department, I decided to look for a gym to help me remember my days of being an athlete, and one that offered other options for exercise than just standard weights by myself. I like to support local businesses and The Workout Company was the ticket. I like the more personal feel of this gym. I wasn’t overwhelmed when I walked in the door and yet there’s a wide variety of options; there’s something for everyone! The trainers are friendly and help keep me accountable. They support me and push me. They listen to each individual and modify exercises if necessary. The groups feel like a little fitness family. I’m motivated to return for each of my sessions, and even after the trainer kicks my butt, I feel better, physically and mentally, when I walk out of that gym.” ~Cassidy Domagalla

“Cassidy has consistently demonstrated her outstanding work ethic and dedication to her health and fitness goals every week since I began working with her. I started at the Workout Company as a trainer around the same time Cassidy joined as a member. Seven months later I can’t recall a single time when she missed a training session, nor have I ever seen her give less than 100% effort during them. As most of our amazing members know, working 8-10 hours a day, 40+ hours a week, on top of all other demands life throws at us, there can be very little time and energy left for exercise. I believe Cassidy is a great representation of what our fitness community persevere through on daily basis; having the motivation to set time aside, even after a long day of work, to continue to maintain and improve the most important aspect of our lives, and that is our health.” ~Trainer Josh Hrudicka
