I haven’t taken a day off in 10 consecutively. My name is Jillian and I am an EPIC addict!
When I was looking for a gym to join, finding a team and community to dive head first into was a priority. It took me only a single workout at EPIC to realize what a special “family” the gym created. Having a small group of dedicated trainers and partners is the cornerstone of my focus, and inner drive. I have seen huge results over the past few months since I’ve joined — in my body, form and most importantly mindset.
I’m sure my friends are tired of hearing me regale them with how great last nights Burpee Hell was or how many races I’ve signed up for, but I can’t help but share how great being part of this gym makes me feel.
As a Doctor I save lives routinely, But to have someone Like Alexander Nicholas ,mentor me and Save My Life is an incredible feeling. I will forever be indebted to him, and how he ran next to my daughter during the kids Spartan race , only to have finished his race, then to run it with my daughter, then with our group, He is a Hero! Thank You Alex for all that you do, and for all the lives you are changing for the better, You are an Epic Human being!
Before joining Epic Hybrid Training, I had been in a constant search for a workout that was intense but also fun and functional. During that search I had been to Equinox, NYSC, NYHRC, boxing gyms, Flywheel, Soul Cycle, boot camp classes and had tried out a bit of CrossFit; everything I could think of. While there were parts to like about each, none ever made me feel like I was getting a complete workout program and none ever made me want to go back again as soon as it was over. The workouts at Epic are intense, as in “sweat through everything I’m wearing” intense. I’m grateful that I rarely worry about getting an injury because Alex, Daz and Julia are so focused on form and mechanics. Everything is done with the goal of engaging stabilizing muscles to become functionally strong, not “gym strong”. My favorite part about what makes Epic unique is the rotational style of the workout program: there are days that feel cardio-heavy, days that feel strength training-heavy and all along there is plenty of core work or yoga. I feel like I benefit so much more from the high-intensity interval training at Epic than from 45 minutes of the same cardio exercise or a workout focused towards only a few weight-lifting movements. I came to Epic around seven months ago and it’s been a transformational decision: I’ve lost a lot weight, added muscle mass, improved my balance, increased my flexibility and feel healthier than I have since I was a kid.
Joining [Epic Hybrid Training] was one of the best things I’ve done for myself. I have been working out off and on for years at different clubs. Being at the gym was becoming boring. I was hoping to find something fun and challenging. The name itself sounded like fun. The training program was exactly what I was looking for. I was also happy to find that the atmosphere was laid back and un-intimidating. Daz, Julia, and Alex are great instructors and partly the reason why I am at a point where I would be selected Member of the Month. They continue to challenge and encourage me, and everyone to work as hard as they can at their own level. As a result, I have reached a new level of mental and physical strength. For that I am grateful.
