Since I have started training with Brent in October 2011, it has now been 18 straight weeks of losing weight and still counting. I have lost over 25 pounds, 5 percent body fat as well as over 30 total inches off my body and still going. I have realized that if I want to see changes, I’ve got to put in the time and effort whether it’s in my personal training sessions, the classes I attend or the workouts Brent has me do on my own.

Just like mom, I was also living an extremely unhealthy lifestyle. I was eating out all the time, usually at all the finer of fast food restaurants 2 or 3 times a day. I have been heavy my entire life, so seeing myself as the fat kid was just a part of my every day. However, this had gotten so far out of control that at my annual physical where it was usually just a “shame talk” from my doctor, this time was given a prescription for my own high blood pressure medication, and weighed in at an unbelievable...

My experience with Donald Williams has been nothing short of excellent. His personal dedication to my health is what sets him apart from other personal trainers. Improving my health was not only my goal, but his as well. Each day when I arrived at the gym for my workout, Donald was enthusiastic and motivating. Donald always made me his top priority and gave me a sense of empowerment.

The turning point for me in getting into healthy shape and shedding excess weight was joining Prairie Life and working with my personal trainer, Becke Grundman. When I started working with Becke I set a goal to lose 20 pounds. 12 weeks later I had exceeded my goal... I lost 22 pounds! I was feeling great and was excited with my results. I decided that if I could lose 22 pounds, maybe I could lose 25… or maybe more. Eventually I was able to lose 40 pounds and my body fat dropped 8.8%. I went...

Three children and eighty extra pounds later I wasn’t feeling so great about myself. I had never struggled with my weight prior to my second and third pregnancies and I wasn’t really sure where to start. After seeing a girl on T.V. with a story similar to mine who ended up working with a personal trainer, I decided that might by just what I needed to help motivate me. I joined Prairie Life in February of 2010. By training twice a week in the beginning and completely changing my lifestyle, I was able...

It's all about the people who work there. Everyone si so friendly! My personal trainer is Armah Mitchem. He always greets you with a big smile and genuinely cares about your success. Looking and feeling better is obvious, but the friendship I have developed with Armah was unexpected, yet awesome. He is my mentor and my friend. Along with our workout regime we always box for our cardio, which is something Ive never done before, but really enjoy. He is the reason I am where I'm at physically so I work...

I joined Prairie Life in late October 2010 after a year long dieting regimen and weight loss of 104 pounds. Prior to coming to Prairie Life, I checked out 20 gyms in the Omaha area and sadly none of them seemed to meet my needs or expectations. I was ready to give up until I spoke with Brad. I explained what I was looking for and he invited me to come take a tour and talk about the services. When I toured the gym I really felt at home. Brad listened to what I was looking for in a work out routine...

I started out depressed, 202 pounds and wore a XXL in clothes. My doctors were on me to lose weight and eat better. I was pre-diabetic, had high cholesterol, bouts of breast cancer and really bad knees. My job created a lot of stress on my lower back and neck. Exercising incorrectly in the past always made my back and neck worse. Since working with Jessica my life has totally changed. My knees are great, my doctors are very happy and my "fat" mood and depression are gone. I initially was scared to...
