LifeStories

Renee M.
I am seeing changes in both my body and strength that I never thought I could do at my age. I look forward to continuing my journey with Izzy. I couldn’t do it without him.
Having been active my whole life and belonging to different gyms for 43 years, it was a given that I would join Lifestart Oakbrook when my company moved into the building in 2012. Loving the intimate environment, cleanliness of the club and the great staff, I started group training with Rebecca and then Izzy. I have weight lifted my whole adult life and had hit a wall. The challenge of working out with a group really brought my appetite back and I realized how much I loved lifting and working out. When COVID hit and everything shutdown I was determined to continue on my journey. I worked out with Izzy via Zoom. In the interim my company moved but I started one on one training with Izzy. The one on one training has taken me to new levels. Being an older, petite woman, I am proud to say I can do a wall handstand push up and I am dead lifting more than I weigh. I am seeing changes in both my body and strength that I never thought I could do at my age. I look forward to continuing my journey with Izzy. I couldn’t do it without him.
