WELCOME TO THE COLISEUM CHALLENGE
Our first testimonial is from Helen. She initially joined us through a challenge group and continued on as a member. Helen has been with us since 2017 and now we couldn't imagine the gym without her! Thank you for sharing Helen and for everything you do for everyone else!
"I lost 30lbs, gained muscle, learned how to eat properly, but most importantly, I now have a new Family who supports me!"
"The Coliseum is not just a place to workout, it's a community that genuinely cares about your well being!
"I finally found a home where I can be me, and where I can share my success and failures with my new-found family. I encourage everyone to give it a try!"
Our next testimonial is from Rob. Both he and his wife Marisa came through one of our challenge groups together and have been with us since as members. Thank you for sharing Rob and Marisa! Both of you have been amazing additions to our community!
"My wife and I completed The Challenge last fall (2018). We had come back from a vacation and were unhappy with our bodies. The coaches were amazing and the meal plan made it easy to follow. It was hard work, but it totally paid off. We shed pounds and body fat and now are in the best shape we’ve ever been in. We have been members since the challenge and continue to learn each class we attend. We’re so happy to be a part of the Coliseum family!"
This is Marisa >>>>
Marisa was Captain America for one of our "Team Theme" Workouts.
Marisa is unaware that we have added this here lol :)

A few more words from our members.....
"During the challenge they kept you motivated and wanting to come back each day. I actually wished that it was more then just three days a week!"
"Staying on as a full member has been just as great."
"It is an amazing environment and I am so happy to be a part of it."
"I was sore and sweaty but I really enjoyed it. Coach Mike was patient and accommodating when adjusting to my needs."
"The difference at the Coliseum is everyone wants you to succeed."
" I love that I have found a group of people that make working out fun and coaches that encouraged me to be “Better Than Yesterday.”
"Once I got to the gym the relationships, the laughter, the excitement, the group, the knowledgable instructors, and the positive environment is so motivating!"
"I felt more excited to workout than I ever had before."
"What I did lose? Two waist sizes, one shirt size, the pain in my lower back, insomnia, depression and the fear of failing in the gym."
"I've watched men and women, young, old, fat, skinny, and everything in between come through the doors of The Coliseum and we all share one thing in common... We just want to be better versions of ourselves."
"This Challenge could be a launching point for your life!"
