What do you do when you're relatively healthy, but you feel like you're capable of so much more?

Today we sit down with 32 year old Mario and learn how his passion for being a model father figure helped him shed his dad bod once and for all.
It's not every day you meet super-athletes like Cason Wilburn. Wilburn recently returned to Virginia from the Summer Olympic Swimming Trials held in Omaha, Nebraska. Wilburn's story originates with inspiration from his family who helped fuel his journey.
When Carolina decided to change her life she knew she needed the help of an expert that would be just as committed to her goals as she was. With the help of her Explosive Performance Trainer Ashley @ash_spoto_ , Carolina was able to lose over 100 pounds! But this story isn't just about weight loss, it's about the new life Carolina found afterwards. Shopping for clothes is no longer like walking into a haunted house, walking up the steps no longer makes her knees ache like she's climbed Mt. Everest, and her abundant amount of self love now pours into the world through an unsurpassed love for all. We hope you enjoy hearing her story as much as we did.
Whether you are an athlete or simply a fitness enthusiast, there are days after hard training in which your muscles will become stiff and sore. During this time, it is highly recommended to take the day off (passive recovery), but active recovery can prove to be more beneficial for your body than static rest.
Mike started Zone4 two years ago when he weighed over 300 pounds and is now down to 215 pounds today. What an inspiration! Consistent strength training, cardio routines, and nutritional support from his Zone 4 Coach, Heather have helped Mike stay on the path to achieving his goals.
I attended my first FREE trial Zone 4 (TNT) class at the end of June and I’ve been hooked ever since! Working out is now fun for me and I look forward to going to the gym daily! I’m a competitive person so being able to work out alongside others and compare my progress throughout class makes me push myself even more! The group environment allows space to workout independently without feeling overwhelmed and our awesome trainer gives us the personal attention and extra motivation/push we all need every now and then! The flexible schedule allows me the ability to attend 4-5 sessions per week. This has mentally challenged me and physically changed me therefore I am forever grateful!
During all of my interactions, the staff has been friendly and helpful!
What a great gym! Chang Yi and his staff are exceptional. I have been a member of this gym for over 10 years, you can definitely see a lot of new equipment, new staff, and new positive energy.
I am beyond satisfied with the service I have received, the excellent new equipment, and the results I have achieved in such a small amount of time. During the past month I lost weight and dropped one dress size.
There is a wide variety of machines and fitness tools to use throughout the facility and every time I have been in to workout it has been completely spotless. Looking forward to continuing to meet my fitness goals with this great company.
This is a great gym with more than everything one needs in a gym! The equipment is good and the cardio area is bright and energetic. There is ample room for free weights and stretching. I have found the classes to all be excellent with very good instructors. And, an added bonus is free, available parking.
