Athlete of the Month – Amy F.

October 2nd, 2018

I am so thrilled to showcase Amy as October’s Athlete of the Month. When I think back to my very first phone conversation with her (almost a year and a half ago), I remember how moved I was by listening to her share her lifelong struggles with weight. She was extremely motivated to do whatever it took to get results.

Athlete of the Month – Sann K.

September 1st, 2018

This month’s Athlete of the Month has GRIT when it comes to getting STRONGER. She has both perseverance and passion for her long term strength goals.

This loss of muscle and muscle function is called sarcopenia. If you live a sedentary lifestyle, you’re pretty much doomed for frailty. Along with this loss of muscle…

Athlete of the Month – Candice P.

August 10th, 2018

When it comes to body transformation, our August Athlete of the Month is very motivated for change. A few months ago she asked me if I would hold her more accountable to her weight loss goal.

Being that Father’s Day is only a few weeks away, it’s so appropriate that TGA’s June Athlete of the Month was motivated to change his life and walk through the doors of TGA because of his daughters, Joann and Nicole. When I asked Sam what his motivation for starting TGA was, he adamantly said “MY…
