Day: November 27, 2013


I first met Oceana when she decided to join our Lose It! weight loss competition with her husband in January of 2013.  They had decided that they both wanted to set their new years resolution to change their daily habits and lose some weight, especially after the birth of their child.


Oceania started the competition with her goal in mind and never looked back.  She started to workout on her own as well as participate in some group exercises classes and every now and again some personal training classes.  Oceania and her husband met with our club nutritionist to talk about making healthy eating habits throughout the day.  Every week that Oceania weighed in she dropped 2-3 lbs; even with being on vacation, the Super bowl, having a new born baby and working she was able to figure out her diet and exercise and continue to make healthy choices…and it paid off.


Oceania won our Lose It! weight loss competition against over 30 other competitors.  In the 12 weeks she lost over 12% of her body weight, dropping 1.98 lbs per week; she also lost 1.4 inches from her arms, 1.6 inches from her chest, 3.6 inches from her waist, 5.2 inches from her hips and 2.7 inches from her thighs.  More important than her amazing body transformation was the fact that her whole family changed their daily habits to include healthy choices in everything they did and they continue to do it as a family.

Member Spotlight: RAMYA SHILOH

Moving from the east coast with her husband, she was new to the Seattle area but was interested in learning some martial arts as she already had a background working with personal trainers and fitness instructors and was ready to try something new.  After using Google to search for health clubs that offer martial arts she found the Seattle Athletic Club and my bio.


The club and I were perfect fits for Ramya from the get go; with her positive attitude and wanting to learn martial arts she I knew she would excel quickly here.  After our 1st session she fell in love with the Savate Kick box training where she received a high pace workout, and was learning the martial arts that she had been wanting to learn for a long time.


One year later she has lost over 30 pounds, and is working on getting her black belt. She is attending classes at Seattle Athletic Club downtown to make her training regimen well rounded, and learn from all of our great instructors. I am so proud to have met this amazing person who shows it is never too late to learn something, and have purpose. Keep up your abominable spirit, and dedication. Congratulations.
