Before I started at No Limit I didn’t work out that much. I use to go and walk around the park, or I would go to the gym but I didn’t have any idea of what I was doing. When, I was at the gym I always did the same thing: warm-up on the treadmill, and then look at the other girls around and use the same machines and did an exercise that they were doing. In addition, I believe I was working out probably twice a month. I was never an active person.CONTINUE READING
There are two main reasons that most people in the fitness industry use to help motivate and recruit clients.
Those reasons are ok, however, they aren’t the real reason why you should be taking care of your body. After all, it is the only one you are going to have.

Growing up, I was in all different sports, soccer being my favorite. I played through high school and also in outdoor/indoor adult leagues over the last 10 years. I’ve always been boarder line obsessed with working out and trying to stay fit. I would go to the gym daily but never really had the knowledge of what was best for me. I was a “if I’m sweating, I’m working out” type of gym goer which usually put me on a treadmill or elliptical for long periods of time. My focus was to be “small”. I decided I wanted to try a boot camp and found one that I really enjoyed. It was an all-female gym in Fountain Valley that had 30 min classes. This was what got me wanting to really push myself. Our lease was up at our apartment and we were looking to move back towards Placentia/Yorba Linda which wouldn’t allow me to continue working out where I was.CONTINUE READING
Before going to No Limit my life consisted of mostly physical therapy trying to recover from my accident. In January of 2010, I suffered a traumatic brain injury from a motorcycle accident in which I lost all movement and strength in my left side.CONTINUE READING
I have been reluctant to write my story because I didn’t think it had the WOW factor that everyone is used to seeing. But then I thought maybe there is someone out there who is in the same position I was 10 months ago, will read this and take the leap! So here goes…….CONTINUE READING
Before I came to No Limit, after Kristen bought me a month pass for Christmas, I was working out a few days a week but she told me I wasn’t working very hard and just going through the motions. I had been told a few months earlier that my cholesterol was over 200 and needed to eat better and exercise more.CONTINUE READING
My journey at No Limit has been an absolutely incredible almost 4 year experience. It began during the Summer of 2011 with a Groupon to try out the No Limit Bootcamp for 4 weeks. At that time the No Limit gym was still a dream of Sako’s. Bootcamp was held at Eucalyptus Park in Anaheim Hills. I had done bootcamps in the past but they didn’t compare to the No Limit bootcamps, which at that time were taught by Mark and Tony. I hadn’t exercised in awhile and was definitely out of shape. I had done some personal training at 24Hr Fitness about 10 years prior but it was nothing compared to what I was about to encounter. When Sako opened the gym in October of 2011 I decided to sign up for bootcamp. I really wasn’t committed and didn’t go very often and it wasn’t until January of 2012 that I made a serious commitment to get into shape. Sako e-mailed out an opportunity to everyone to apply for his 90 day Body Transformation program through personal training and nutritional coaching. Those interested had to answer a series of questions as to why we really wanted to participate. Sako was looking for individuals that would be committed. I didn’t know Sako at the time I applied and he confided in me, much later, that he wasn’t sure if I was up for the challenge and it was Mark and Tony that told him they thought I could do it. Yes! I was chosen to participate with two others. My real fitness journey began at No Limit on 1/16/12. This is when fitness got into my blood.CONTINUE READING
Before No Limit my life was all about soccer. When I tore my ACL, junior year of high school, my priorities started to change. I was still working out every day at LA Fitness, but it was the same old boring workout routine. I was just maintaining my body. During this time I was eating whatever and was going out partying 3 times a week (a lot of late night Del Taco runs). I didn’t like the way I looked and I had zero confidence in myself. I pretty much felt like the ugly duckling out of my family and friends. I didn’t feel or look at myself as being an attractive young lady. I knew I wasn’t a small girl, but I didn’t know how to change my body. I just continued my same routine workout, partied, and being unhappy with myself.CONTINUE READING
