“With fitness and health, when you take that first step, you attract the right people into your life. Your environment changes around you and you can reach your goal” explains Keely Field, a LA Fitness member.
In January 2015, Keely found herself at her heaviest weight, which caused her pain. She would often ignore the pain, but knew it wouldn’t go away. After countless medical appointments, Keely’s doctor explained that she was on the path to Type 2 Diabetes and needed to do something about it. Keely realized she no longer could ignore the pain in her body and needed to be proactive about her doctor’s concerns about her health. Keely knew it was time for something to change.
Shortly after meeting with her doctor, Keely joined the LA Fitness Pro Results® Personal Training Program and started training with Jay Padilla, a Pro Results® trainer. Jay knew exactly how Keely felt. He shared his own weight loss journey, which reassured Keely and let her know that she was in good hands. Keely started to train with Jay on a regular basis and complete a variety of workouts. Each time Keely entered the gym, she knew no two training sessions were ever going to be the same.
Jay’s encouragement and Keely’s dedication to her diverse workouts keep her moving forward. She continues to set goals and reach them every few months. Over time, these goals increase and Keely continues to enjoy successes with Jay. In fact, Keely recently surpassed her goal of losing 50lbs and has lost over 65lbs as of July 1, 2016!
As Keely reflects on her weight loss success, she shares that “you lose people, you lose things, you can lose moments, you can lose friends, you can lose partners, but what you never ever lose is an achievement.” Keely knows no one is going to do it for her. She continues to stay focused on her fitness and work out with Jay. She took her first step into her fitness journey and knows there is no turning back.

Do YOU accept the #Dance2CureALSChallenge?
Here’s how to do it…
It’s the latest craze sweeping across social media channels. You know, people dumping buckets of ice water on their heads. It’s crazy right? But the craziest thing just might be that it has raised a record amount of money for ALS research. Perhaps just as important is the amount of awareness about ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), it’s devastating effects and the research to cure it that the Ice Bucket Challenge trend has created. After all, social media fads tend to fade as quickly as they arrive, but this time a wake of knowledge about the disease will be left with the millions of people around the world who participated.
LA Fitness has been involved with supporting ALS research through Augie’s Quest for a few years now. In fact, every February LA Fitness puts on an event at every club to raise money for this cause. So, once you dry off, come and warm up with us in February. Together, we can find a cure!
