Pam Brown

“I joined TFX as I wanted to take care of myself, feel stronger, be healthy both inside & out. After being a member at a traditional gym I saw results but my workouts became monotonous & I slowly became bored & started to lose focus. This went on for quite a few years. I would get motivated and work out regularly but I would always seem to end up in the same place ~ seeing like progress & little support from the trainers. After trying out TFX I felt invigorated after just the first 30 days & knew this was not the same old gym or workout routine. I definitely see results in my weight as well as my overall body appearance, my clothes are fitting better almost on the big side & I have more energy. I look forward to working out now and my body actually craves the endorphins.

The workouts are just 45 minutes they go by so quickly but I always walk away feeling so exhilarated more than I would after 2 hours at the gym. I appreciate all the positive encouragement from the trainers during the workout & their reassurance when I can push myself to go harder or stronger as well as their guidance when I hit a plateau or not progressed as I should. They help me pinpoint where I could see better results. I highly urge anyone who is thinking of starting a workout routine or even those going to a gym to come to TFX just give it a try & see the results!”

“I joined Transform FX in December 2011. For the past 1 1/2 years I struggled with my motivation or desire to “get-back-in-shape”. I felt like I was on a constant roller coaster ride with exercising and with my eating habits. I didn’t want to spend the money on a gym membership to work out for 2 hours 5 days a week to get the minimal results that I’ve gotten in the past. Another TFX member suggested I try bootcamp one night because she talked highly of it and what sold me was “it’s ONLY 45 minutes”. So…I had to see for myself. Since then, I’ve been a member and in 3 months I’ve lost weight and several inches all around. I enjoy how all the sessions are filled with different exercises ~ the routines are never the same. I’ve regained my motivation, desire, and energy to work on my body inside & out. I’ve motivated my husband too…he’s more of a gym rat than a bootcamper, however, I’ve seen his results and he has thanked me. My trainer(s) have been a huge help with keeping me accountable for my daily nutritional log and providing me with various food suggestions when I’m feeling like I’m in a food rut. Several of my friends have commented on how I look and I then go into my sales-mode to have them try TFX one night. I know it will change their life like it has changed mine!!!!”

Carolina Quinonez

“I was browsing Group-on one day and found this great 4 week deal for boot camp sessions in Concord. It was great timing because that same day I was trying on a pair of what I use to call my “fat jeans” and they were fitting snug. I decided to purchase the deal and see if this would finally give me the motivation I was looking for to get back into shape. It is March 2012 now and I joined in August of 2011 20 pounds lighter and several inches smaller I can definitely say I found the motivation that I was looking for with TFX.

TFX doesn’t provide you magic excelsior or gimmicks to lose weight fast. Instead what Anna and her team of trainers (Ale and Sean) provide you with are ways in which to incorporate exercise and eating healthy into your everyday life. With my hectic work and commute schedule incorporating healthy eating habits was pretty hard especially for someone like me who hates to cook and just has very little time to do much of anything. To sum it up I pretty much ate out all the time and would hardly look at what I was putting into my body. When I met with Anna to go over my nutrition she pointed out that preparing your own food and eating less processed food could really help with weight loss. She also went over keeping a food journal to but down what you are eating and track your calorie intake. This definitely makes you more aware and accountable for what you but into your body. Keeping a food journal has really changed my eating habits but best of all its made me learn how to cook.

What I love about TFX is that it doesn’t matter the shape that you are in or if you have never worked out in your life. Anna, Ale and Sean work with you and strive to get you into the shape you want to be in. Not only that, they will modify an exercise for you should you have any aliments that prevent you from doing certain motions that an exercise requires. I enjoy the people I get to work out with and the instructors we get to train with and I want to thank them for helping me and the others strive to attain our weight loss goals.”

Kenny Mendoza


“The reason I joined Transform X Fitness Bootcamp was because I was tired of being a couch potato. In the process, I kept putting on weight and I started to have low self-esteem and confidence. Bottom line, I just didn’t feel good about the way I looked or felt.

I signed up for the 5:45am class and I can’t believe I get excited about attending every morning! Since I’ve joined, I have more energy and my muscles are beginning to tone. More importantly, I feel really good about myself and I feel like I even walk “taller!”

I really enjoy the fast pace of the class. I also get to do new exercises, which means the classes never get boring. I really enjoy the exercises that utilize the kettlebell and dumbbells because I feel my muscles working. The key to my drive has been working out in a group environment because I see everyone else working hard and that makes me want to work hard also. Just as valuable are the trainers, as they modify exercises to fit your needs and serve as motivators during each class.

I would encourage everyone to try out Transform X because it will really change the way you feel about yourself. The most important thing you can invest on is yourself, especially your health. These classes are fun, efficient, and will keep you coming back for more.”

Michelle Henry


“My name is Michelle Henry and I joined Transform FX in September 2011 when I decided it was time to get back into shape. My coworker was raving about a boot camp class that he was taking, which happened to be Transform FX. I received an offer on PlumDistrict.com for an introductory trial. I thought I’d give it a try for a month, but I ended up liking it so much that I extended my membership. I have tried many different classes and gyms over the years, but I feel Transform FX is different. It’s addicting! The 45-minute classes are more effective than spending hours in a typical gym. I look forward to the classes and I rave about them to anyone who’ll listen. Since joining Transform FX, I’ve noticed that I feel a lot stronger and I sleep like a rock after classes. My posture has improved and I even notice definition in my arms that I haven’t seen in years. The classes are great – my instructor is so helpful and keeps me motivated. I like that each class is different, so I never get bored with the workouts. I’ve learned so many new exercises (I can count at least 40!) and proper technique. Plus, all of my classmates are so friendly and help each other get through the workouts. In my class, there are a lot of cheers, woo hoo’s and high five’s! I would highly recommend Transform FX to anyone who is looking for a fun way to get in shape and feel great!”

Tracey Gentile

“My name is Tracey Gentile. I am an RN who works at Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch. I joined Transform FX Fitness back in November 2011. Diet and fitness have always been an important part of my life. I have never been one to join a gym or any kind of fitness class though. I preferred to do my workouts in the privacy of my own home. I had done a lot of work over the past few years to lose the 20 extra pounds I had gained in previous years, but once I started working the overnight shift from 7PM-7:30AM it became really hard to become motivated and have the energy to workout at home. I began to realize quickly that I needed to join something to give me the motivation to work out or else I would undo all of my hard work. I came across Transform FX Fitness from a Living Social deal and immediately bought it. I knew it would be tough to make the classes with my varied work schedule, but my schedule actually fit perfectly for that first month so it must have been destiny! I went on that first day and was hooked! I loved it and continue to love it every day, and am so glad I have since joined as a full member and force myself to go after work in the mornings even if I am dead tired. I always feel energized afterwards. My favorite part of boot camp, especially since I am new to California and don’t know too many people, is the people and the socialization. It is so much better than working out alone at home. First off, I definitely get that accountability that I needed. If I am thinking about skipping class I see these people as depending on me to be there so I go and have a good time. I love that we all push each other to do more and be more in those 45 minutes of working out. The trainers have been great also. It is so important to have proper form and they are always there to correct and encourage you. They are there to support you nutritionally and mentally and their main goal is always to make a healthier happier person out of each of us! I have had the privilege of training with each of the trainers and they are all great.

Let’s talk about results because after all the proof is in the numbers. Since joining I have lost 10+ pounds and about 5% body fat. I have also lost countless inches all over my body, most importantly that stubborn belly fat. My biggest success came with the 30 day program where I was able to kick those last 5 pounds and inches in my belly. Most importantly I feel more energized, healthy, and happy. Working out has become my favorite part of the day. To anyone thinking about joining I would say “what are you waiting for???!!!” Honestly there is no time like the present to get in shape and take your health back. So many people do not make this a priority in life and as a nurse who sees chronically ill and obese people on a daily basis I cannot say how important this is. If you are like me and are shy about working out in public or don’t know if the class is right for you please give it a try. You will not be sorry! The trainers are all great and it really is the people in the class that make it. The clients are all fabulous people and they make it fun and worthwhile.”

Rauly Butler

“This is for everyone – young or old, male or female, fit or not, this is for you! It’s been 8 weeks and I have lost 27 pounds toward my goal of losing 52 pounds. Before joining Transform FX Fitness, I tried every diet, supplement, and gym program out there. I continued to gain weight and the only thing I lost was my money. Gym sessions can work, but it’s hard to push yourself and to keep motivated. Working out at Transform FX is not only motivational, but it’s really fun. You meet new people who have the same goals, you work with very supportive coaches, and it’s never boring – I’ve learned over 40 new exercises! The exercise is challenging at first but it quickly becomes addictive; you feel better and you want to do more. My blood pressure is way down, I am more alert, and I have lots more energy!
