Member Success Stories

Member: Robyn Richardson

Club: Litchfield MN


My weight loss journey began late January when a friend approached me at the gym and told me I looked like I had lost a lot of weight.   I felt like I had and since I have not owned a scale or weighed myself in a couple of years; I thought I would get on the scale at the gym.  I really thought I was going to be pleased at what I saw.

Well, to my horror I discovered I weighed more than I ever have in my life.  The scale read 168 lbs. and I’m only 5 3-1/2”.  So I mentioned this to the manager, Elsie, and she encouraged me to keep exercising and watch my diet.  I started coming to the gym every day and using the treadmill for 35-45 minutes with an incline intervals program or intervals of higher speeds.  I also cut down on meal portions, eating at night, between meals, and substituted one of my meals with an Isagenix shake.  I started losing weight almost immediately.

It’s now three months later and I’ve lost 20 pounds!  I have begun to wear clothes that I have not been able to get into for quite some time.  During the past three months, I have had Elsie to encourage me and I am very thankful for her support!  Besides fitting into my clothes, I have a lot more energy and it’s so much easier bending over and running up and down the stairs. 

I would like to thank Elsie and Anytime Fitness!  It’s such a great place to come and exercise, and I cannot over emphasize how important Elsie’s support has been for me."

“I was 35 years old and every bit of 400 lbs. (probably more but most bathroom scales won't weigh that high) when I finally came to terms with the fact that I either had to lose weight or die.

I started cleaning up my diet but I knew that I needed to increase my activity level. I had kept a membership at Anytime for years and had used it exactly twice at this point. I've had more "exhausting" workouts since, but the most "difficult" workout I have ever done in my life was walking into the gym for the first time since deciding to live a healthier lifestyle. I was far too heavy to run on the treadmill so I spent about 20 minutes on an elliptical machine then limped out of the gym with two cramping calves and sense of accomplishment for taking that first step. I continued with cardio, added in weight training over the next 6 or so months and eventually began working with a personal trainer. Andrea Fennern, my trainer, was an amazing source of training and nutritional knowledge. More importantly though, I think, she was a source of motivation and emotional support through my journey over the next two years.  Since the days of being exhausted walking up half a flight of stairs I've lost 160 lbs, run several half-marathons, hit a 305 lb bench press, and gained a sense of self-worth that I wouldn't have thought possible at my heaviest. Anytime Fitness, their staff, and the rest of the gym rats that I see every day have made this journey not only possible, but a lot of fun at the same time.”​

Member: Leigh Eide-Christian

Club: Mandan ND

One of our favorite members, Miss Leigh decided at 53 years old she was going to make a goal for herself, in honor of, and to stay healthy for her grandchildren.  With 128 days until her 54th birthday, she decided she would workout every day until her birthday.


She drove by every single day until working up the bravery to stop in and get a membership. At first, she came in little by little, at that point, she lost hope and was thinking of giving up. Instead she decided, this was too important and so she started to work with a trainer. She turned the hour of t.v. each night that she affectionately called "Leigh time" into gym time for herself.


She made the decision that she was going to work out every single day and she has been in


Leigh has more than earned her Member of the month award at the club, but she is also such an inspiration to so many. She is so humble and so sweet. 


 Her favorite phrases are, "When I am 90, I want to be a silver fox that everyone is inspired by!" "If I can do it, I know anyone can!"

We win, when you win!

Here is our member Dale Lipp. He is in the club every day, sometimes twice a day and gives it everything when he is here. First picture was his heaviest at 260, and now he is at 180! He told us he has so much more energy, and gets bored with his day when he's not here.

Just goes to show what a true lifestyle change can do!
