Finding Fitness After Survival

Alloy Client of the Month: Bobby Willms from Worx Clubs Wenatchee Valley, Washington!

I was in a severe car accident, breaking my neck and my arm. I fractured my C1, C2 and C3 vertebrae; the doctor said a C1 fracture is almost always fatal and a C2 fracture almost always leads to paralysis.  God’s miracle and a Subaru saved my life, and I am truly grateful every day!

After surviving, I was determined to increase my health and fitness. I joined Worx Clubs of the Wenatchee Valley (Washington), and I know it gives me a much better quality of life.

When the Alloy program was just getting started, I was approached to try it out – so I did. It is the best thing that could have happened! Through Alloy, I have made great strides in my physical ability, which has transferred over to a marvelous state of well-being! The workouts have gotten me into the best shape of my life, and the social aspect gives me an increasingly positive outlook. The friends I have met in my training have been a real joy to me – I look forward with anticipation to meeting up with my gym buddies!

Every member of the Worx Alloy team is fabulous, knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging! Wanting to get the most out of my workout, I very much appreciate that they observe and tell me ways to improve my form. They always demonstrate and fully explain the exercises for the day and strive to keep us safe, giving modifications for any exercise.

Attendance at Worx is my personal obligation – and a priority in my life. I drive two hours round trip to be there, and with Alloy I am in the best shape that I can be, both physically and mentally!

Alloy App FAQ

The Alloy app launch has a lot of moving parts and has caused a little confusion; so, we wanted to answers some frequently asked questions and try to clear things up:

Q: Does the app work on Apple and Android devices?
A: The gym-side app only works on Apple devices. So, your coaches and admins will need an Apple iPhone or iPad. The web version of the app will work on any computer. The client-facing app (the version that your members will download) works on both Apple and Android devices.

Q: Is there a charge for the app?
A: Alloy has paid the development cost to build the Alloy app on the existing Trainerize platform. Trainerize will charge you for your usage, but there is no charge from Alloy.

Q: How do we see a demo of the app?
A: In the most recent emails they said they are ready. Contact Trainerize to speak with their dedicated sales team!

Q: How do we add our trainers and clients to the app?
A: Once you subscribe, you will be assigned an on-boarding specialist who will train your team on how to use the features of the app and assist you with uploading your clients, adding coaches and etc.

Q: Will others be able to see our client data?
A: No. Your portal is secure.

Q: Who do we contact if we have problems?
A: Trainerize has created a special team specific for the Alloy app. Your case will be given the highest priority by a member of this team.

Q: Will the weekly workout templates be available through the app?
A: No. The workout templates can still be found on the Alloy platform, just like always. But, you can download the program templates from Learner Nation to your IPad and go paper free! That’s what we’re doing at the mothership!

Q: How do we order the app?
A: Follow this link to sign up

Client of the Month: Gaining a Healthier Fitness Lifestyle

Alloy Client of the Month: Eric Manthy of The Alaska Club East in Anchorage

As someone who has always had a very lean body and has struggled with my weight for many years, I’ve achieved a new, healthier fitness lifestyle with Alloy. Going on four months of training with my trainer at The Alaska Club, I’ve seen results I never thought were possible to achieve. With the guidance of Demetris & the Alloy® Training Systems, I have managed to gain 40 lbs, while keeping my body fat percentage down.

Through my fitness journey, my trainer has helped correct my form on exercises I thought I was doing correctly for years – but was actually risking hurting myself! I’ve learned new exercises and techniques using the Alloy® Training Systems that keep me motivated to help me reach my fitness goals.

In addition to having a much healthier body and appearance, I now have confidence that helps me not only in fitness, but in my day to day life.

Alloy Client of the Month: I Couldn’t Do This By Myself

I have to thank everyone at Alloy Personal Training Center, for “altering my birthday suit.” Thank you for greeting me and giving me the encouragement I needed when you honestly said “we are in business because of people like you.”

In the beginning, I thought I was just going to go into the gym and shed the extra pounds. Well, I tried for a few months but I was really playing the system. I didn’t commit until I got the news that my very close cousin had Type-2 Diabetes and was losing her sight. I was determined to prevent this from happening to me. I went to my doctor for my annual physical and I was declared to have pre-diabetes. The doctor gave me several instructions for a strict diet then sent me home to return in six months. What was I to do?

My turning point was when I realized that I could not do this by myself. Alloy helped me by building an individualized workable plan for my eating habits. Now that I had a new way of eating in place, I needed the proper and most effective form of exercises. I had an exercise plan designed for me and appointments made for me. Now it was up to me to follow and be accountable!

I realize exercise and proper eating habits go hand in hand. It is a lifestyle – not just something you can do here and there. Some days it’s hard for me to get to Alloy, but once I get through that door and swipe my card, my whole attitude changes instantly. I can honestly say that I have restored my energy level and my pre-diabetes condition is under control.

All of the coaches have contributed to my weight loss, for which I am amazingly grateful. The Alloy team keeps a watchful eye to make sure I’m on task, as well as doing the exercises correctly. I could not have done this without their kindness, interest and patience; I thank them all from the bottom of heart.
