Real Results WITH EMPOWERED RECREATION

Tara Alcazar

I feel I have always been an athlete in whatever sense of the word. I played 4 sports in high school, two sports in college, ran marathons during my Master’s program, and taught spinning as a side job. I have always gravitated towards “healthier” food which to me meant more vegetables and fruit and less meat. However, until this 8 week challenge (Empower's Best Body Challenge), I had not had the entire picture of a healthy lifestyle in all aspects, nutrition, fitness, and all around lifestyle. I was planning for a wedding and all of the stress that came with it. This challenge (and my accountability partner) were truly the things that got me through the stress of crazy decisions, family drama, and all the logistical nightmares that come with a large wedding. I make bad eating decisions when I am bored or stressed. My partner kept me from snatching up a chocolate chip cookie by texting me on a daily basis and making sure we planned our workouts together. We checked in with each other over the weekend to make sure we were getting a run in and not drinking or eating too much crap food. We even became pretty good friends and he watched our house while my now husband and I got married and went on our honeymoon. Double bonus for that!

I have NEVER been able to do a pull up and was able to do three in a row by the end of this challenge! I got new meal ideas and started incorporating green smoothies into my regular diet. I explored different supplement brands to enhance the work I am already doing at ER. I have not felt this good about myself or my body in a very long time. While I never really noticed any weight change (I don’t weigh myself regularly), I had people at my wedding (and even people at Mike’s job) comment on how great I look or how “awesome my guns” look in wedding photos. They really do look awesome and I am not usually one to toot my own horn. I am putting my husband through ER workouts in our living room and loving the entire transformation of my lifestyle. 7 pounds down, two inches off the waist, two inches off the thigh. And the best is still yet to come!

“I walked into Empowered Recreation (ER) with the hope that I could increase my strength and flexibility a little. It was getting increasingly difficult to do some basic things like climb up bleachers and lift things over my head, and I knew it would only get worse if I didn't do something.

Thanks to the talented coaches and supportive atmosphere at ER, I have increased my strength and flexibility, but I've gained so much more. Monthly strategy sessions help me set goals, identify my motivation for those goals, and track progress.

Nutrition classes have helped me change my eating habits and the way I think about food. And the group training sessions have yielded benefits that I never expected, including increased energy, improved posture, and even relief from chronic back pain that I'd had since college. Plus, it feels good to be able to do things (kettle bell swings, pull-ups, agility ladder, and more) that I couldn't do six months ago!

All of this has been accomplished in a really positive and supportive environment. Members of all ages and fitness levels are challenged and reach their goals because the activities can be modified and personalized as needed. In addition, the members sincerely encourage one another.

I couldn't have achieved a fraction of the results that I have if I'd used a DVD program or gone to a "big-box" fitness club. The instruction, encouragement, and accountability at Empowered Recreation equip me to be successful, keep me motivated, and make it fun. I'm thankful I found ER, and I appreciate all that Coach Mack and the other coaches have done for me.”

I never was an athletic person, and always did only the bare minimum needed to stay alive… If somebody told me a year and a half ago that I would go to the gym every morning, I would laugh - it was not my lifestyle at all. The idea of going to the gym was foreign to me; especially since I despised those big fitness centers, filled with pretty and strong bodies showing off their lean muscles. But I met Kenny Mack in 2011 who introduced me to his business, Empowered Recreation, and that meeting changed my life. To be frank, it took me another year to finally commit to re-create my body. Now, looking back, my only regret is that I haven't met a person like Kenny 20 years ago…

Empowered Recreation is different. It's not like big-box gyms, or cross-fitness studios. Empowered Recreation offers an intimate and gentle environment that allows you to start working on your changes without feeling shameful, less-than-fit, or being judged.

I found my new family at Empowered Recreation - coaches Kenny, Kate, Nate and all my fellow members. Their support, understanding and patient coaching made all the difference. I realized new horizons for my personal development - physically, mentally and spiritually. I became a new person - confident, strong, committed, determined. I came to realize that I can achieve anything in my life - whatever I set my goals on…

I can't stop thanking Kenny and his team at ER for being in my life - there's no way to NOT work out every week-day.  On top of that, obvious changes in my look and life inspired my wife and some of my friends follow and join ER - what can be better? I am so glad that I can make difference in their lives as well - thanks to ER.  If you relate to my story - kill your doubts and quit hesitating; come over and check Empowered Recreation out!
