Dawood Amedi

Before & After

“My name is Dawood and I’m a father. I’m just a normal guy that finally found a program that works. I’ve tried all sorts of training programs, gyms and diets with no long term results.

Luka and his amazing team of trainers helped change the way I do things in the gym and the other 23 hours of the day. They really care to see you succeed, not just short term but also, and more importantly, long term. They helped me see fitness is a gift and you give to yourself and it should not be a temporary goal but rather a journey, way of life.

At Renton Results Boot Camp I got help with my nutrition. Things that were realistic and long term and not short term fads. I only trained 3x a week for 35-40 minutes and did some short metabolic furnace workouts at home on 2 other days. In 9 weeks I lost a little over 40 lbs and 10.1% body fat!

I have honestly never felt better and I have energy all day for my full time job AND my own business that I run in my free time.

The only thing I can say is if you’re thinking about joining this program, stop. Don’t put it off another day, don’t start Monday or next week. DO IT TODAY! Like me, I promise you’ll be glad you did!”

Dionne Bailey

Before & After

“Before I came to Renton Results Boot Camp I had just started trying to eat healthy and exercise about 2-1/2 months before that. So I had lost almost 20lbs already. I was shocked at how intense but short the work outs were and even more surprised by the immediate results in weight and inches lost! And it was in about ½ the amount of time that I was spending in the gym everyday. Needless to say I was HOOKED after the first week!

I was most nervous because I thought it would be too hard for me. I didn’t want to get in there and not be able to do anything and feel embarrassed. I learned VERY fast that everyone is working so hard (whether they had been there 2 weeks or a year) that they aren’t worried about what you can and can’t do. The trainers are very good about encouraging you but also pushing you when you slack off, and very importantly they have a high level of expertise and knowledge to modify things specifically for you when necessary.

In the 4 months I was at Renton Results Boot Camp I lost about 35lbs and LOTS of inches. I wish I would have measured before starting. I went down 5 dress sizes so I KNOW I have lost a lot of inches.

I am so motivated to keep working hard to reach my goals of being in good physical shape. I feel more confident and healthy and ready to take on new challenges!

I would absolutely recommend this program to others. In fact I have had over 20 friends buy the groupon when it came out and/or purchase the April special. At least 3 of my friends that I know of have joined and I tell EVERYONE who asks how I’m loosing so much weight that they should check out Renton Results Boot Camp too!”

Amanda Stuart

Before & After

“When I came to Renton Results Boot Camp I didn’t know what to expect. I was one of those people that hated doing group classes because I was so self conscience of my weight. I was 193 lbs and now I am 142 lbs and wear a size 5 and couldn’t be happier! I have so much more stamina and strength than I have ever had in my life! I am able to climb a few flights of stairs and when I get to the top I am the one asking why there isn’t more stairs to climb!

I have worked with other trainers and the thought of doing 30 minutes of cardio followed by weight would have me thinking I’m walking out of this gym and never coming back! With Renton Results Boot Camp, I’m able to complete cardio and weight within a 35 minute period and get the results I want! I couldn’t imagine life without it!

Luka is an amazing inspiration in my life and has helped me in so many areas improving myself mentally and physically! I am forever grateful for what I have gotten from his Renton Results Boot Camp and I’m not stopping here. I’ve a lot to achieve and the sky is the limit!”

Rebekah Baker

Before & After

“Mom transformed from frumpy & fluffy to FIT & FABULOUS!”

“I am a mom of 4 young kids who wanted to get my body BETTER than it had EVER been! I had no energy & felt worn out & washed up! I didn’t have the time to go to a gym & workout for 2+hours. I needed a quick & efficient workout plan that burned fat, built lean sexy muscle, & kept me motivated to stay consistent! Luka & the Vigor Ground Team gave me just that. I never trained longer than one hour, including warm-up. In 10 weeks I lost 20lbs & over 12% of my body fat!! Luka got me so fit I became a national NPC Bikini competitor! The bootcamps are just plain FUN – Lots of energy, sweat, encouragement, & good ‘ol hard work – The team is there to help you no matter what level you’re at or injury you might be dealing with. You’ll never get discouraged in this energetic & supportive atmosphere! I promise you, you’ve NEVER experienced anything likeVigor Ground!”

Susan Thompson

Before & After

“I started training at Vigor Ground 1 1/2 years ago. My goal was to turn 65 and join medicare in the best health ever! I succeeded–Sept of 2011! I’ve gone from holding a plank on my knees for 3 seconds before collapsing exhausted to the ground, to keeping up with many of the regulars–even challenging some of them! I’ve lost 70 lbs and gone from size 20-22 to a solid size 10! The trainers accomodate all levels from ellite fitness competitors and athletes to those like me who could hardly do anything! I love boot camp and am there 4 times a week! It’s NEVER dull, never the boring repetitive routine of other gyms where I’ve worked out! My body never gets a chance to adapt to an exercise because they are always changing up the routine! Great combination of challenges with circuits that work all my muscles, getting my heart rate up there, adding just the right breaks–like 10 seconds–to make it all work! Exciting to come each time wondering what it will be today!! I’m in and out in about 45 minutes with an amazing work out that leaves me exhausted for the first 10 minutes after boot camp, but then rejeuvinated for rest of day! Positive, encouraging atmosphere with staff and fellows boot campers who believe you can do it and help you prove just that! I am still pinching myself and amazed that this WORK!!! —Susan (65 year old babyboomer grandma!)”

Mayra Sanchez

Before & After

Mayra had tried just about everything before from diets to hiring personal trainers at the local Renton health club. She never had any real results when it came to weight loss and had been seriously frustrated before giving Renton Results Boot Camp a try. At the beginning Mayra’s mindset was holding her back because she thought her genetics were stopping her from getting the body she deserved, which meant she was skeptical about the program. After the first couple of months Mayra dropped 16 lbs and saw that she can do it! She joined the Back To School Transformation Contest and came in 2nd, dropping 27.3 lbs. After 6 months Mayra dropped over 46 lbs of body fat getting her body lean, toned and full of energy. She is a rock star boot camper!

Dennis Williams, Jr.

Before & After

“I lost 24 lbs in 6 weeks and am now in the best shape of my life after having spinal stenosis surgery…”

“Before training with Hocevar Performance my training was at a regular gym and I was just maintaining the results I had achieved in the past. I wanted to get leaner as well as get my strength levels up. To top it all of, the year before I had 2 knee surgeries and spinal stenosis surgery, this is very invasive. The doctors told me I shouldn’t lift heavy weights and had advice to restrict much of my physically demanding activities. I was frustrated and feeling like there is no solution and that I may always have to “watch what I do”.

I was skeptical that I could maintain my muscle while losing the fat as I had always done regular cardio and never had success. I was really worried about not being able to do the strength workouts because of my back and knees. I was told not to deadlift, squat, run! I didn’t know how I was going to deal with that.

At first, training with Hocevar Performance I lost 24 lbs in 6 weeks with training specifically outlined for me and my trainer keeping me accountable with my nutrition. Most importantly, my pain levels have almost completely diminished and I have never been as strong, athletic and flexible and even the doctors were amazed that I can squat, deadlift and sprint with absolutely no pain! This is all because of the great programs that were catered to my needs and constant emphasis on form.
Because of Hocevar Performance I now feel better than I ever have, lean, muscular, pain free and able to perform anything!”

Matt Fields

Before & After

“Walked into spring training at 238 lbs and 9.1% body fat…. performance was through the roof!”

“My first year and off season training with Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance I was looking to take my performance to the next level and move up the ranks of the Tampa Bay Rays. My experience and results were way above expectations, I went from 252 lbs to 238 lbs and dropped my body fat from 15.2% to 9.1% (measured by the Tampa Bays start of the season) and even more importantly my performance went through the roof, from hitting power, sprint speed, etc. not to mention getting rid of my nagging injuries..

The training was challenging and there is definitely no b.s.-ing at the HP facility, but there is constant motivation, an unbelievable environment and training that is designed specifically for your goals. If you’re an athlete looking to get an edge over the competition and stand out from the rest I highly recommend Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance!”

Christina Spencer

Before & After

“So before I joined bootcamp, I honestly thought life was just fine and that the world had a problem but I didn’t. I was going to figure out a way to make it ok to “thick” because it was culturally acceptable to be that way. However, I know in the back of my mind that I was completely out of shape and sometimes walking up a set of steps would wind me.

Before joining, I didn’t know what to think! I figured it would be crazy skinny people running around trying to save the poor fat people!! I thought that it would be too hard and that I would never be able to keep up with the exercises or the eating.

Since beginning bootamp in December, I have lost over 30lbs and I have gained muscle all over! I am much stronger and leaner than I have ever been in life! 4. I am completely in love with the people and the workouts at Renton Results Bootcamp. I can’t imagine life without going to a bootcamp. It makes me feel energized, fit, and empowered! I am able to wear clothes that I haven’t been able to wear comfortably and I feel more confident about my body. 5. I try to recommend this program to as many people as possible. If I can change my world and lose 30lbs, any one can! The program is invigorating, the trainers are amazing people who genuinely care about helping you to improve your health. Renton Results promotes a love for life and a love for people changing their life to get the body and the life that they always wanted!!”

Doug Lawrenson

Before & After

“In 2007, at the age of 48 I injured my back at work. The pain shooting down my right leg was so bad that I couldn’t sit in my car without screaming, I had to have a stand up desk at work, and sleeping was always a question. My doctor had followed the standard treatment, painkillers, anti-inflammatory meds and physical therapy. The medicines help cover up some of the pain, and the physical therapy, while helping, after 6 months was proving to be something that wasn’t going to get me back to “normal”. I than had an MRI done and it was determined that I had degenerative disk syndrome (mostly due to years and years of not treating my back right) and a bulging disk from the injury that was pressing on my sciatic nerve causing me all the leg discomfort. I had 2 injections in my back, neither one really help, and I started getting acupuncture treatments. I have to say that I thought I had found my way back. Acupuncture was giving me more relief than anything I had tried to this point. I was 49 years old and at this point wanted just 2 things. I wanted to be able to play golf again, and I wanted to be able to sit on and ride my motorcycle. The acupuncture had gotten be to a point that I was able to golf some and ride my bike, but I couldn’t believe that I was going to have to live the rest of my life with daily pain.

Fast forward to January 2009. A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to try out a new boot camp workout. It was at a new gym in Renton being started by the husband of one of the dance teachers from the studio where my daughter danced. So a couple weeks before my 50th birthday, we headed off to see what Renton Results boot camp at Hocevar Performance was all about. After our free week trial period I was hooked. The workouts were intense and because a lot of it was bodyweight stuff, I wasn’t afraid of it hurting my back more. Luka is very knowledgeable in how the body works. He makes sure proper technique is used not only for maximum benefit, but to make sure you don’t injure yourself. The workouts are structured so a trained athlete, a stay at home Mom, and 50 year old guy like me can workout together all get a great workout. And results? After just 2 months working out with Luka, and following a meal plan he put together for me to help me achieve my goals, I went from a starting weight of 215 to 185, and lowered my body fat percentage from around 20 or 21 percent to about 15 or 16. And the best part of all this is the condition of my back. My sciatic pain is all but gone, I am probably in the best total body shape I have ever been in. and that is saying a lot from a guy that played practically every sport under the sun at one point or another from childhood through my college years. At age 40 I ran a marathon, competed in triathlons and rode my bicycle 200 miles in one day. None of that training did for me what Luka and Hocevar performance has done for me in terms of total body conditioning.

I have been training with Luka for almost a year now and have no plans to quit. There is still a lot of work to do. The boot camp workouts have become a part of my weekly routine, and while I may curse Luka during a workout, I really miss them when they are not on my schedule. I have kept the weight off, continue to get stronger and am really looking forward to taking it to the next level. Not to mention I am playing the best golf of my life and I know my fitness level has a lot to do with that. Thanks Luka, thanks Hocevar Performance, and thanks to my fellow boot campers who push me to be better every workout.”

Jim Tweet

Before & After

“I lost 63 lbs in 3 months and won the competition…”

“I finally became honest with myself after looking in the mirror and I knew that I had to do something about my weight and about the way I was feeling. I was always felt sluggish with low energy levels and I found myself being unproductive throughout the day. I decided to enter a weight loss competition and chose Luka and Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance as my personal training corner.

Training with Luka was definitely out of my comfort zone but one of the best decisions I ever made. I had constant accountability, motivation, nutritional advice as well as training that pushed my every day and a kick in the butt when I needed it! I ended getting results I never dreamed with a 63 lb weight loss as well as losing over 10% of body fat. Many of my friends and family didn’t recognize me….

If you are serious about achieving incredible results and you stop convincing yourself that there are short cuts then go to Vigor Ground Fitness and Perofmance and change your life, the results are nothing short of spectacular if you are willing to dedicate yourself.”
