Tierra Whitlow

If you’re anything like Tierra Whitlow, the atmosphere and equipment of a new fitness center can be anything but inviting. Impersonal fitness centers hadn’t worked for her in the past, and workout videos were equally ineffective.

But when the busy mom decided to give Fit4Lincoln a try, the isolation she felt at her previous gym didn’t exist. In its place was a welcoming atmosphere filled with trainers who took a sincere interest in her wellbeing, and members who were equally welcoming.

Four years and 30 fewer pounds later, Tierra is grateful to have found Fit4Lincoln. It’s just the right fit for this active mom, who works her fitness workouts around a sales associate’s job at Casey’s General Store and caring for her two children, ages 9 and 11.

Fit4Lincoln has been a life-changing experience for Tierra, whose active
lifestyle as a high school student-athlete at Lincoln Southeast a dozen years ago was interrupted by a torn ACL.

Over the years, inactivity led to poor nutrition and weight gain. Four years ago, she had peaked at a personal-high of 204 pounds and decided to give Fit4Lincoln a try. Her skepticism turned into delight. Tierra likes the approach of owner Matt Priess and the trainers at Fit4Lincoln.

“They push you, but not to a point where it’s beyond your limits,” she said. “They have a good idea of your capability level, and the members are very supportive.”

Fit4Lincoln has been a life-changing experience for Tierra. Her schedule calls for five 30-minute workouts per week. Working around a changing work schedule, she now makes the 10 a.m. class at the gym, and often tries to go back at 5 p.m. and catch a second class.

Thanks to a phone app that keeps her on course, Tierra has replaced junk food with high levels of proteins and lots of veggies. “I wanted to eat healthier,” she reflected, “and the nutritional counseling I’ve received has allowed me to do that.”

Now within 25 pounds of her goal to weigh 150, Tierra is proud of the path she’s chosen. If it’s time to pursue your quest for a better body, discover the right fit at Fit4Lincoln!
