Member Spotlight: Andy Lyons

Andy Lyons has been a member of Prairie Life Fitness for over 10 years. He joined PLF to lose weight and feel better about himself. His original goals were the weight loss and to feel healthier. Andy states it took him about 2 years to reach his goal weight; losing 50 pounds! It only took him about 6-12 months before he felt healthier, and only about 3 months to feel better. 

When asked what he likes most about his PLF experience, Andy stated, “I feel better about myself. The last 10 years I’ve had two surgeries; a spinal fusion and shoulder surgery. Because I worked out I bounced back a lot faster than I was supposed to. This last surgery, the doctor said it would take 4-8 months before I would be 100% and it only took me right at 4 months to be 100%. PLF made the difference!”

When asked why he would recommend PLF to his family and friends, Andy states, “I feel PLF is the best work out center in the City. I’ve been to a lot of different places and I always came back to PLF. Also the staff and members are very friendly. I tell people all the time to join PLF because you’ll feel better!”

Thank you for choosing PLF, Andy! Here’s to many more years working out with us!!

The Smart Way to Kick Off the Season

Did someone say back-to-school? Football? Cooler temperatures? Difficult to believe that summer vacation is over again. But, we've made it through another summer of un and it is time to get back into our normal, busy routines again.

Routines… Even the word screams, “boring!” But, it doesn’t need to be. We are creatures of habit and need our routines. Workout routines help us achieve the next goal of fitness levels but it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. Doing the same thing day after day and expecting to achieve different results may not be insane but it can be extremely frustrating for the fit-minded. In the clubs, we offer many ways to mix it up and keep members from hitting plateaus, personal trainers, classes and special activities around the club. However, many of you just want to come and do our own thing and we understand that. For you, we’ve developed the PerFit personal training app. You can read about it in this month’s newsletter. Think about it as one more way to put that data plan to work for you!

Here’s to a winning season of successful workouts and as always, family fun!
