Lost over 45 pounds and countless inches so UAC Program: WEIGH WAY LESS
“On my birthday I signed up for the program because I knew it was time to do something for my health. I had tried many quick weight loss schemes in the past, and then ALWAYS gained back the weight. I wanted a proven program that would finally work for me, even if it took time. I chose the WEIGH WAY LESS program because I wanted a balanced approach to healthy eating and weight loss.
The program is awesome! I have been meeting with Lifestyle Coach Heather Rotella each week, and I cannot say enough positive things about her! She is encouraging and holds me accountable. She gives me new recipes when I’m in a rut, and she encourages me to vary my workout when I’m feeling unmotivated. Other members of the Nutrition & Wellness team are there for support, too, and I appreciate all of their encouragement!
WEIGH WAY LESS is truly a plan that you can envision yourself using for the long term. It’s all laid out for you, easy to follow, AND they meet with you and encourage you along the way! It is truly the best plan I’ve found!”
“I joined my friend (and fellow elementary teacher) at UAC after seeing how amazing she looked! Thanks to workouts like BODYCOMBAT, GRIT, and BODYCOMBAT and small group training, we are still at it! I didn’t realize how much of an impact working out would have on me mentally! Getting my workout in first thing in the morning gears me up for my busy day with fifth graders and then my family!”
“When I first starting training in the Thrive program, I struggled to keep up… but after just a few weeks my flexibility and strength improved. Now it’s been several months and I’m feeling much better because of Thrive. Box jumps are now fun!
Due to my schedule I have trained with several different groups and have made many friends along the way. We all have different levels of fitness and strengths, and our trainer Steven always works through each step with us.
I have combined the two Thrive sessions a week with additional cardio workouts and eating better, and have managed to lose over 25 pounds.
I plan to continue with Thrive, and I look forward to the new me in 2018. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get in shape!”
Five days a week, Daniel trains with his wife Tami in the BOXFIIT program at UAC (designed by George Foreman III). They also take classes such as BODYPUMP when they can fit it in their busy schedules.
When Daniel first joined the club, he weighed 172 pounds, and he has achieved his goal of reaching 160 pounds! Tami had a goal of building her upper body strength, and she says she has seen a significant improvement.
“Our stamina has skyrocketed since we have been attending workout programs at UAC. We feel we have become quicker, and our minds are sharper and more alert,” said Tami.
“We originally signed Dathan up for swim lessons because we wanted him to respect the water. He had no fear and would jump right in without hesitation. He didn’t know how to swim yet, so it was unsafe. We felt much more comfortable after he started swimming lessons at Universal. We chose private lessons to best suit our family’s busy schedule and for the one-on-one attention.”
“Dakota was born with a condition called Spina Bifida. Although she is cognitively on the same level as her peers, her mobility is delayed. She is paralyzed in her feet and has reduced sensation throughout her legs. If she were in a group class she would require a bit more attention from the teachers just to keep up. Private lessons have helped her advance at her own speed while getting extra attention that she needs.”
Daniel, Tami, Brielle and Alivia are in this together!

“We joined Universal Athletic Club as a family so that we could all be in good health together. We love the family environment that UAC provides and values, and the fact that our children can get physically fit the same time we do. We felt that UAC was the best option because of its environment, friendly staff, expert coaches, convenient location, and incredible services offered.”
“We are very grateful for our incredible UAC experience, from the classes to the friendships that we have made with employees and fellow club members. Our advice for for other busy families is to find an hour in your day dedicated to quality family time and exercise…and stick to it! Also, sometimes be spontaneous. If you are just sitting around at home, then pack up your gym bags or swim suits go to UAC!” said Tami.
“I feel SO much better than before I started coming to Universal! My mood is elevated and physically I’ve noticed so many improvements!”
“Since starting with Universal, I have seen a significant increase in my overall well-being. … I am extremely happy with my progress thus far, and look forward to continuing with my workouts.”
“I went to every major gym in the area. Checking the benefits of each one there was only one that offered more than what I was looking for! Almost every class you pay extra for with the other guys is included at Universal! This is an amazing place!”
“I’m a Grandpa who wants to keep up with his 2 1/2 year old. I’ve been taking care of my grandson since he was 2 months old. I have diabetes also. I have been coming to the gym for almost 7 months now. I feel great and my A1C number has gone down. The people at UAC took away my fears of going to a gym. I got my wife to join also she is trilled with the waistline inches melting away. Your muscles don’t know how old you are. Exercise!”
“Universal is so helpful! They truly care about your success! They tailor everything to you personally and offer so many different options. They have a wellness and nutrition center as well as a spa and all the equipment you could ever need or want! The classes are what caught my attention. I’m trying hard to lose weight and they are there for my accountability and success! Recommend this place to everyone!!! Go check it out, get a tour!”
“Universal Athletic Club is the gym that has it all. I’ve been regularly attending for the last 2.5 years and have been in the Thrive Program for the entire time. It is great to have a program that pushes you at the correct pace so that get results while making sure that you are doing it correctly. I’ve lost and kept off over 20lbs and pretty much resolved my lower back pain by strengthening my core. The Thrive trainers are truly dedicated to their clients and helping us reach the results we want.”
“I’m a stay-at-home mom and Universal has really brought us joy! It gets me and my 3 yr old out of the house, it gets us moving around and it brings us together while also giving us time apart from each other. I love all the available classes and it feels good to be motivated and energized while BONUS helps me shed some pounds!”
“The Silver Sneakers program is so wonderful. The instructors are very sensitive to our needs, and so helpful in many ways! All of the staff is so nice and helpful, also. It is MY gym.”
