My name is Katie, and I started working out at Lift in January 2020. I am a full-time stay-at-home mom and wife who works about 30 hours a week for a virtual school. Needless to say, my days are very full. After giving birth to my little one, I did not make time to focus on my own health and fitness, which led to me gaining weight. About 9 months after my baby girl was born, I was very frustrated with where I was physically and mentally, and I didn’t feel like I was able to be the mother, wife, and teacher that I wanted to be. I was desperate to find something to help me get back into fitness and take better care of myself. 

I researched several gyms in the area, but the time commitment for their sessions was too much while I was trying to balance work and caring for my little one. I was starting to feel discouraged when I drove by Lift and saw their sign advertising 15-minute training. I had seen the sign before but honestly didn’t think 15 minutes would make a difference. However, since it said the trial week was free, I thought it was worth trying; 15 minutes seemed doable, and I am so grateful I took that risk. 

I reached out to Shaun asking for more information and if the training would be safe while nursing my little one, and she assured me that the sessions would be safe; I met with Shaun for my assessment soon after. When I first met Shaun, what stood out to me was her kindness and that she readily answered all of my questions; she didn’t hesitate once when explaining Lift’s exercise philosophy, and she was patient and made me feel heard. I have lost over 25 pounds and 14 inches so far; I feel stronger and more agile (helpful with a toddler); and I am much happier and more optimistic than I was just a couple months ago. Lift hasn’t just helped me improve my fitness; working with Shaun and team Lift  has helped me improve my mindset, and I have become more confident in myself through working out with her. Training at Lift isn’t just about physical fitness; the team takes the time to invest in their clients personally, which leads to lasting results. 

When I started at Lift, I was also given the opportunity to do the nutrition program called Precision Nutrition. Because of this program, I have developed a broader understanding of nutrition as it applies to me personally. The lessons and weekly habits focus on making small changes, and those changes are having a lasting impact in my personal life. If I were to describe the program succinctly, I would say that it focuses on changing your mindset about nutrition and really helps educate about the reasons why I eat the way I do, helping me focus on the emotional part of eating. Rather than focusing on a list of do’s and don’ts, it focuses on a series of better choices and small changes, which are more likely to lead to lasting changes and long-term healthy choices. Shaun has been my coach through the program, and she has been very supportive, encouraging, and has given me great feedback. I feel more empowered when it comes to the nutritional choices I am making, and the way the program focuses on small changes has helped me make progress while balancing caring for a toddler and working. 



Eating well is a form of self respect.

I began LIFT in 15 in 2013 with my husband. We love the targeted, quick workout. I continued through 38 weeks of pregnancy and Shaun was great at adjusting my workout, while keeping me strong. My work outs helped me stay more active while pregnant, helped me with my labor and helped me postpartum. I started my workouts again after five weeks of my baby’s birth and definitely recommend it!

Lift is a body, mind & spirit work out all in one. It is an efficient use of time & way to maximize results in the body. I worked out with Shaun for 11 months & have seen tremendous changes in my body, stamina, mental health and overall well-being. Shaun is a mindset coach, fitness coach, therapist & friend rolled into one -all in 15 minutes! The shifts and transformations that take place in 15 min twice a week are phenomenal! I have to do the work, and invest in me, Lift maximizes my effort!



Every journey begins with the first step.

Thanks for the December Challenge – check in for your workouts twice a week, eat clean- maintain or lose weight! Shaun is great at cheering you on as you lift more weight! Shaun and her team also hold you accountable!! Great way to spend 15 minutes!

Before working out at LIFT I had done the “gym thing” many times with no success. I have always just been the tall skinny guy and have had little to no success at the gym, so I decided it couldn’t hurt to try LIFT for 6 months. I was very skeptical to say the least when I first heard about their workout plan of only 15 minutes a day twice a week. Well, thanks to the most amazing trainer guiding me and pushing me every step of the way, after 10 months I had gained around 20 lbs of muscle. I am now on the body comp program so I can attempt at a six pack by summer and in the 3 weeks that I have been on it have lost 4 percent body fat! I love the workout atmosphere LIFT and do not foresee myself ever going back to the normal gym atmosphere. Not only do I have a GREAT trainer at LIFT, I have developed an even better friend. Here’s to seeing the results of what another year will bring!

Shaun and her team have made a huge impact on me – They are always cheerful, encouraging, and motivating. In my first 8 months I was able to lose 35 lbs the healthy way!



TO change your body, you must first change your mind.

My wife and I started just 6 weeks ago. We (maybe me) were skeptical of the concept of anything happening in 15 minutes. Impossible right!? Wrong. After crawling to my car a few times I was beginning to feel the 15 minutes could be effective. Legs, why work out legs? Well, I haven’t felt as strong on the ski hill or mountain bike since I was 20! Btw – I’m 47. Bottom line, LIFT Works. If you feel differently you are incorrect. Thank you Team LIFT. The 18 pounds I’ve lost and strength I’ve gained in 6 short weeks has dramatically changed my “power to weight ratio”. I’m hooked.

Our program is designed to work on your absolute worst days, not just your best days.

Mirus, the Latin word for wonderful, extraordinary, that’s what I call LIFT. Life changing is another. My name is Tina; I’m 46 years old, a wife, mother, grandmother, and devotee of the 15-minute workout. I always thought that my body served me well, I play volleyball, softball, ride my snowmobiles and dirt bikes, I started snowboarding, but now that I started at Lift, my performance is well, amazing. My serving has improved; I can move quicker, I stood up on my snowboard without turning over and pushed myself up! I just donated three bags of clothes that don’t fit because they are too big!
