The results are in!

The first group for the Elevate Yourself 6-Week Challenge has finished the challenge and the results are awesome! Each of them gave it 100% and it payed off. All of them started out with boot camp classes and moved up to group classes. They took it to the next level and they are amazing athletes. Their results clearly show that inches speak louder than pounds when it comes to seeing results. I have to say that the one thing I notice when I look at their photos is how proud and tall they are standing in their “after” pictures. Check out their before and after pictures. Way to go ladies!

Mayra Garcia knows how to bring it. She works her tail off when she comes to class and it shows in her results. She pushes herself past her limits each time she works out. Here’s what she had to say about the program:

“When I started this program with Wendy, I knew from the beginning it was what I’d been looking for. With a trainer who cares for what you need and want, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. I did the 28 day challenge and felt in 2 weeks an immediate difference, I lost a total of 9.75 inches and 3 lbs and was totally amazed when I saw my before and after pictures. I didn’t think I had lost so much but I feel so much better and actually look forward to the summer clothing!!!! Its a life changing program its not a diet!!!! I continue to work out with Wendy 3x’s a week and, I again must say she is AMAZING, friendly and caring. Don’t put off for tomorrow, what today could make a difference.”

In 28 days, Mayra lost 3 pounds, 9.75 inches total with 2.75 inches off her chest and 3.5 inches off her hips!


Erika Nieto is one of the hardest working women I know. She has an incredibly busy personal and business life and still managed to find time to do this challenge. When she comes to class, she leaves it all on the gym floor. She is a fierce competitor! Once Erika locates her measurements, we will post them.


Kristi Jones started out doing boot camp classes and has ROCKED the group classes. She is incredibly driven and I have really seen her grow into an amazing athlete.

In 28 days, Kristi lost 3.6 pounds, 5.25 total inches with 2.5 inches off her waist alone, went from 22 sit-ups in one minute to 31 in one minute and increased her handstand hold by 22 seconds!


Jaclyn Pettigrew is just awesome. She started training with me in January and told me straight up that she didn’t like to work out, get hot or sweat. After she started feeling better and seeing the changes in her body, she became hooked! She has only missed one class in 4 months. She developed a stress fracture in her foot and did the entire challenge in a boot. She is a ROCK STAR and she knows how to rock a swim suit!

In 28 days, Jaclyn lost 6.6 pounds, 7 inches total with 1.5 inches off her waist, increased her push-ups from 35 in one minute to 43 in one minute and increased her hand-stand hold by 21 seconds!


Marisa Grijalva can do anything when she puts her mind to it. She put it to this challenge and just KILLED it! This isn’t her first time doing a challenge like this so she knew what was to expect and what was expected of her going in to it. Her results are mind-blowing. I remeasured her three times just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things.

In 28 days, Marisa lost 7 pounds and 16.75 inches total. AMAZING. She lost 3 inches off her waist and 4.5 inches of each thigh. CRAZY! Her pull-ups went from 38 in one minute to 48! Time to move her from jumping pull-ups to the band.


My girls rule.

I don’t even know how to begin this post. I actually started this a couple of weeks ago if that says anything. My heart is so full and happy that I’m kind of at a loss for words. About six weeks ago, I asked six of my girls (I call my clients ‘my girls’) to be my test group for my 6-week Elevate Yourself Challenge. I knew that the program worked on me but I needed to prove to myself that it really worked. All six of them said yes and they were off and running. They stuck to the plan with very few cheats, did the workouts and made it through the sugar and wheat detox like champs. We are finishing up body comps this week and so far, the results have been amazing. I even had to remeasure Marisa three times because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

I am so incredibly grateful that they did this not only for themselves but for me as well. They know how much this program means to me and it makes me so happy and proud that they really gave it their all. I don’t let a single day go by without saying thank you for this chance that I’ve been given.

I know that I am guiding people towards changing their lives but I never imagined how much and how much my life would change. Just as I was starting one of my afternoon classes, Katrina, my awesome neighbor, friend and one of the original six, came over and presented me with a card from my six girls. Needless to say, I was completely surprised and it made me cry! Thank you so much to Katrina Cardenas, Erika Nieto, Marisa Grijalva, Jaclyn Pettigrew, Kristi Jones and Mayra Garcia for believing in me and for believing in yourselves! You all are awesome and will forever by ‘my girls’! Love you all!
