2019 Challengers Success Before & After pictures:
On April 24 2019 I woke up and told my husband I have to change something or accept this miserable life I have been living sitting in a
chair most days falling asleep and still in pain and very much over weight. I called
Jason that morning at JFTS. I became very nervous because I just committed to something I wasn’t sure my body was up for. That same afternoon my doctor told me I was a DIABETIC It scared the daylights out of me but thank goodness earlier in the day I had already signed up for the 8 week challenge at JFTS that started May 01, 2019. The diabetes scare was the extra kick I needed to make the change..I lost 21lbs and several inches and I became stronger during the 8 week challenge. When I heard about the transformation challenge I thought that is exactly what I need to keep me focused on the journey of lifestyle change. I haven’t felt this good since my high school years and it’s because of my training and support at JFTS. I want to do the body transformation challenge to keep me focused on better health, eating clean and to hopefully be rocking a healthy strong body with full body movements into my future years. And oh yeah to say at 51 I changed my world.
Well after doing the 16 week JFTS TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE I am in a much better place in this world.
When I told Jason Crouse I was thinking of doing the transformation his exact words to me were. “Denise the only person you have to beat is the person looking back at you in the mirror “ I kinda chuckled to myself and thought I just see everyone else in the mirror when I am training and they are who I have to beat. Well I soon realized everyone else is doing there own thing, and I am going to have to stop staring through who was really staring back at me. I realize now I was staring past that
person because I did not like what I seeing looking back at me. A very overweight unhealthy and unhappy person. So I thought to myself put you big girl pants on dig your heels in and beat that person looking back. So that is what I did, with the help of JFTS and my new JFTS family always cheering me on (and of course my dear husband for always being there and putting up with my some days not so good moods ) I trained 6 days a week tried to eat as clean as possible. With a few slip up here and there I would get right back on it the next day. With that all being said I feel in my mind I have one the challenge because I beat that miserable person that was staring back at me. I now see a confident happy and much healthier person looking back at me that I am now proud to look at and say that is me.
I am very thankful Jason Crouse followed his dreams and shares them with Saint Johners in two locations. Without his dreams Of helping people stay healthy and mobile and his awesome team I wouldn’t have met mine, to be fit and healthy in my golden years.
Thank you Jason Crouse, Annette Ellis and the JFTS team and family
When I decided to sign up for the JFTS Transformation Challenge I would have never believed it if someone told me what changes would take place at the end of 16 weeks! Yes there are the visible changes in my body , but the changes that aren’t visible to the eye are the most valuable to me! You see , the Kim before this challenge would never put herself first, would never wear a bathing suit let alone step on a stage with one on!! I always cared what others thought and would make choices based on other people’s opinions! I can honestly say I am living my best life and learning to fall in love with who I really am! I’m so excited about where I am headed and wondering what’s next for me. I have so much ambition to set new goals ! This journey has only lead me to find new passions that were just waiting for me to find the courage to live them! I am more spontaneous, take risks, and stepping out of my comfort zone! I am doing the things that make KIM happy!!! I don’t care what others think and I’m learning to not make room for toxicity and negativity in my life, only positive and people that want to build me up and help me reach my goals! I received so much growth, so much knowledge, so much confidence, so much hope and excitement for my future .....the list goes on and on. Right now I am living my best life and nothing will stop me! Thank you JFTS!
The transformation challenge has made me feel a confidence I never had before. I feel happier, healthier, more positive and I am not always worried about what I look like. I used to change so many times in the morning trying clothes on until I felt comfortable. Now I’m happy with all my outfits feeling confident. My lifestyle has changed for the better. I’m not as food crazy as I was before and I’m happy with the healthy food choices I am making. Having the courage to get up on stage was huge. I never thought in a million years I would do something like this. It has been so fun! This experience has me setting new goals for myself and I am so excited to accomplish them.
Overall I have lost 21 pounds and I couldn’t be more proud of myself! This transformation has helped me both physically and mentally. Jason & Annette at JFTS are so inspirational and made this such a great journey.
In July 2019 I entered a Transformation Challenge Sponsored by JFTS(Jason Crouse) Gym it was a 16 week transformation that came to a conclusion last night at the Saint John Fall Classic at the Trade and Convention Center. Well I cannot express the Gratitude I feel for Jason Crouse and Annette Ellis the time and attention you gave to us through this transformation the motivation and yes attention to the details to prepare us to walk out on that stage the very best versions of ourselves on that night, so we felt like we belong on the stage go far above and beyond. To the girls that shared this journey with me and stepped way outside our comfort zones to do that, that was also part of the transformation, a bigger part then most will realize. As we are not the people we were when we entered this challenge. I know for myself that all the hours of practising the poses that was for Jason and Annette, I wanted that done to the best of my ability with my lack of experience with this venue, but for me I wanted to bring the best version of who I am today thanks to this journey with you, to make you proud because knowing you and how you love to change peoples lives for the better well Jason and Annette you have most certainly done that for not just one but many! You took shy, bring no attention to ourselves people and made them feel like superstars and if that's not a transformation that surpasses just the physical part of this journey well then I don't know what is. To all the members at the gym I cannot thank you enough for all the support and encouragement you gave and having you in the audience last night cheering us on made getting up there alot easier. To my family and friends who have been a great support system I could not have done this without you and one more person I cannot forget to mention Scott Duncan, my trainer I hope you were proud last night because I think at the transformation level we rocked it! since you know better then most just how far I have come from the first training session. and I will see you Monday morning as I continue to show up and change even more.
A year and a half ago, I felt tired, had no energy, was beyond uncomfortable, in and out of my clothes, and embarrassed because I had allowed my weight to rise to 165 lbs. I did not feel myself. I knew I needed to take the steps required to begin to feel myself again. There have been many stages to this process in the last year and a half, however, the biggest was to take control of my body, my health and my weight. I am not a big box gym type of girl at all and find them intimidating, so when I was referred to JFTS, I messaged Jason right away and set up a time to meet with him. I immediately knew JFTS was the right fit for me and becoming a member that day was the best decisions I could have ever made for myself!! JFTS and its members quickly became like a family and a great support in helping me reach my goals!!
I have lost a total of 54 lbs. and I feel so much better, not only on the outside but also on the inside!! I sleep better, have more energy, am stronger and fitter than when I was in my 20’s and have so much more confidence in myself for reaching my goals!! Thank you so much to Jason, Annette and all of the JFTS staff for simply being you and making JFTS such a welcoming, personal, healthy, professional and motivating place to be! Forever grateful
In July 2019 I had reached my heaviest weight ever. I had no energy, no purpose and was sick all the time. On impulse I joined the JFTS 16 Week Body Transformation Challenge. Little did I know, it would be one of the best decisions ever. I knew I needed to be accountable to something, I knew I needed guidance and support. I got all of that and so much more. My transformation goes so much further than skin deep. I have found a sense of peace within and am generally a better, happier person. I have a confidence I haven’t felt in years. I lost 33lbs during the challenge!
The connections and friendships made along the way were such a beautiful and unexpected gift. The other challengers were amazing. Any time I started to doubt myself, they were there to talk some sense into me. We had so many laughs along the way and developed true & special bonds. We became each other’s biggest cheerleaders. It was so heartwarming to see women lifting each other up.
The support from Annette and Jason was priceless. They coached, nurtured, encouraged every step of the way. They believed in me long before I could believe in myself-for that I am eternally grateful. This truly was an amazing, life changing experience.
Hi, my name is Wendy Stevens, age 47, mother of 3 (ages 19, 20, 22)
For me, it’s wasn’t about achieving a perfect body; it’s not a diet, but, a new lifestyle, I started a year ago and my weight was 144lb and I knew I needed to join a gym and get back in shape after seeing photos of myself. As of today, I am at 119lb - I lost 25lbs . I wanted to feel good in my skin. , take care of myself, smile more and be more confident. My journey has been about feeling strong, happy and healthy and getting out of my comfort zone! JFTS has been my Therapy after going through a lot of life changes (divorce and losing my parents & family members) I am choosing to stay positive and live each day to the fullest.
About me: I have been a runner for years, I have done ½ marathons and a lot of 10k’s but NEVER touched weights as I was insecure and intimidated until I joined JFTS and started doing metabolic classes, high energy classes, combined strength and cardiovascular training 3 mornings a week. When I started JFTS I couldn’t even do 3 push up and after a few months of training and being pushed by Jason, I could do 25 + and l learned the proper way how to lift weights and strengthen my Core with “Annette’s AB Classes” Just knowing I have an amazing support system at JFTS every step of the way, speaks volumes, they are like family and have helped me become a better version of myself physically and mentally. Now this 16 week challenge and transformation has lead me out of my comfort zone to where I am today on stage and I am living my best life.
Thank you for everything , you both are an inspiration Jason & Annette.
If you would have told me I would ever do something like the transformation challenge I would have told you is that you were crazy.
I joined JFTS in November of 2018. I loved it right away.
I started the The challenge in July of 2019. It was life altering for me. I wanted to challenge my thoughts on body image. I wanted to do something that would challenge me and this transformation was one of the biggest challenges in my life.
I learned to be more accepting of myself and when I was down I only stayed down for one day. I felt mentally and physically better. I have more energy. I met some pretty amazing people.
I had a lot of support from my family, friends, the other transformation participants, and Jason, Annette, and Nas.
I could have not done this without any of you.
Would I do it again? In a heart beat♥️
The best thing I’ve ever done for myself was join JFTS. I needed to put myself first and really focus on getting back into shape and living a healthier life, because I hated what I seen in the mirror .
I enjoy everything they have to offer, with all the one on one training, group training , and support anytime of day ( Jason even gives you his cell number ) he answers every question ( even as silly as mine may have been) I love it there. And when i heard they were doing a body transformation challenge, I knew that was the extra kick in the butt I needed! They gave me all the right tools I needed to really transform my mind and body, they were there for everything! The group workouts, the motivation, the support, and the relationships you make with the other challengers are next to non. This challenge really did change my life for the better. I am the most happiest I’ve ever been, I am now putting my health my myself first , and it is all because of JFTS and his wonderful team!
JFTS is truly more than just a gym. They are family, and I am blessed to be apart of it.
If you are looking to put yourself first , and are looking for the best team who really supports you along EVERY step of the way, then you found it. JFTS is your new family, and all I can say is welcome to the family ❤️ you are welcome here
