Reign Fitness had an incredible 2016!

It was the second year in our current location and after some growing pains in year 1, we hit the ground running.

We watched our community grow in numbers, our Reign Family learn to support each other, and so many of you strengthen relationships with one another.

“We watched our gym transform from being just a gym and into a real community. It was amazing!” 

In this post…

You will see some of the highlights from 2016 but please keep in mind that this hardly highlights the real every day victories we had, the challenges we faced and overcame, and the real growth of a solid support system in our gym community.

Thank you all for an amazing 2016.

Hope you enjoy!

Our First Ever Bring A Friend Friday

Bring a Friend Friday’s have become a part of our Culture at Reign Fitness.

It’s really because the Reign Fam loves sharing fitness with their friends but also because everyone cares about the people in their lives.

I want to personally thank everyone who has ever brought a friend and shared Reign with them.

Reign was started in that very fashion, with 1 member telling a friend and then that person becoming a member and telling another friend.

It’s because of all of you that Reign is what it is.

And for that…

Thank You!

The Reign Fitness Community will always be our biggest strength.

Team Reign Gets Stronger | Coach Jodeci Joins Team Reign Fitness

Jodeci started off as a member who saw some incredible results and went through an equally incredible transformation!

And…

With that kind of life changing momentum on her side, she discovered a passion for fitness and helping others.

So in January, we signed her and still consider ourselves so lucky to have her as one of the leaders in the Reign Fitness Community!

Team Reign Gets Even Stronger With A New Coach | Coach Megan

In March, the Reign Team grew even stronger with a New Coach…

Boom she took off coaching!

Members Get A Jump Start On The Summer | Nutrition Accelerator 2016

2016 was the first ever Nutrition Only Challenge and it was extremely successful!

Without changing anything to their workout routine, challengers worked to dial in their Nutrition and focused on progress not perfection.

Not only did we see a ton of results, we got the opportunity to see all of our challengers learn so much about their individual nutrition.

Summer BBQ | Potluck

 

Every year, it’s tradition that we hold a Summer Potluck as a way to celebrate our community, our commitment to health, and the individual efforts that make us a family.

A potluck is something Mesha and I both grew up with and something that was and is always a part of our family get togethers.

We wanted to do the same with our Reign Family.

Now we cook for each other (and eat a lot), we laugh with each other, and we celebrate each other as Family.
