Real women, real stories

Sam G.

Name: Sam Griffith

When did you start at T&N?: March 2022

What’s your service?: Personal Training (1:1 and semi-private with my friend, Michelle!)

What was your exercise history before T&N?: “I worked with other trainers in the past, but none as consistently as I do now. Charley cares about my health and wellness. She’s built my muscles, endurance and my confidence.”

Share your story: “Before seeing Charley, I struggled with a variety of basic tasks due to an autoimmune disease (climbing stairs, sitting on lower surfaces, walking on the beach, frequent trips and falls). Ever since I started coming in (I do personal training three times a week), I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my every day life. In addition, I can tackle tasks I couldn’t even fathom one year ago.

Last winter, I sat in the lodge when my fiance and friends went snowboarding – I thought those days were behind me and I wasn’t strong enough to get on the slopes. This year, I completed two runs already with my friends, and am looking forward to the bunny hill in Breckenridge.”

Name: Maria Rodriguez

When did you start at T&N?: June 2022

What’s your service?: Personal Training and Group Classes

What was your exercise history before T&N?: “I have always been someone who went to the gym being an athlete in my younger years. I was getting over an ankle injury and needed the extra motivation to get me started again.”

Share your story: “I stumbled upon T&N back in May after the Fishtown location opening. It looked like something I should try. I scheduled a 1-1 consultation with Carly and loved her energy and the space. I signed up for PT with her twice a week and have been seeing her ever since. I also supplement group classes when I have time as well.

Since joining T&N, I can definitely feel my clothes fitting differently and I overall feel more confident. I see Carly early mornings (6am crew) so it’s helping me establish a better routine in my work and personal life. I’m not so much focused on the scale as I am about getting my body moving for my overall health. It’s been a great feeling working through an exercise and telling Carly we can go up in weight :).”

Stephanie C.

Name: Stephanie Cross

When did you start at T&N?: June 2021

What’s your service?: Personal Training and Group Classes

What was your exercise history before T&N?: “I played sports in high school and early college but since I was 20, never had any regular exercise routine and hadn’t even been in a gym or similar space.”

Share your story: “I have been on a personal health journey since the beginning of 2020, and since that time, I have lost about 150 pounds and became the healthiest, strongest and most badass version of my adult self. I started at T&N in late Spring of 2021, ready to try some kind of regular physical activity besides walking (and I still prioritize those steps!). I had always been interested in strength training and weights, but I never had anyone teach me what to do. The idea of going into a gym was intimidating. I started to look into women only spaces and personal trainers. I needed understanding, patience, and education and I found it.

I am so happy with what strength training has done for my physical and emotional self. It is not about a pants size, a number on the scale, or family or societal approval. It’s about feeling strong, investing in yourself, meeting goals you never would have thought to think of a few years ago. I just got back from a hiking trip to Sedona, and climbed Cathedral Rock, and not everyone in the group made it up. A few years ago, I would have been left at the base wishing I could have seen the view from the top. I’m now able to get to the top and see that view for myself. I chose to invest in and prioritize myself and T&N has (and continues to) help me level up.”
