BRE

Bre came to Studeo with an ambitious goal: to lose 5% body fat in four months. It seemed impossible—but it wasn’t long before her custom nutritional and fitness program began delivering results.

MARK

A lifelong athlete, Mark joined Studeo to keep up his regular routine—but ended up on a journey that took him all the way to the CrossFit Regionals.

THERON

Studeo is the only place Theron’s ever wanted to be. He works hard and trains even harder, splitting his time between massage therapy, coaching, and training to compete at the CrossFit Games.

LORI

A busy entrepreneur and mother of 2, Lori had little time to spare for the gym—until she joined Studeo and fell in love with her weekly Tabata class.

BRE BLAIR

36, Actor, Model, Competitive Soccer Player

I was in Vancouver from LA for a shoot and needed somewhere to workout that would get me actual results. Knowing my soccer background, one of my good friends suggested Studeo. She said they had a more athletic style, which I just assumed meant super intense—like, hate and love your trainer at the same time intense. Which was cool, because that’s usually what I’m into. Plus, after years on the field, I needed a place that could deal with some of my lingering injuries.

I showed up with a pretty big goal: to lose 5% body fat in four months. To me it seemed pretty impossible, and I wasn’t really sure that even a hardcore gym like Studeo could make it happen. Little did I know, they’re pros at body science.

Instead of just designing a workout, they also took a hard look at everything I was putting in my body. It was goodbye delicious Vancouver cuisine and hello strict nutritional plan. I didn’t even have time to mourn the loss of complex carbs, however, because my trainers were always on my case, pushing me harder with every session. Things definitely never got boring.

The warm-up sessions were new for me. I’d never had a trainer take the time to work on mobility and strengthening pre-session before. But I think being prepped really helped elevate my workouts (though I still usually left with shaky legs).

In the end, I got there. I lost 5% body fat in four months and I did it in a way that was safe and healthy. Since then, I’ve slowed down a bit (and reunited with cheat days) but I’ve already started working to get back to my PB. Now that Studeo’s in LA, I’ve got no excuse. To me it’s important to always be at my best, and Studeo’s combo of physical and nutritional guidance is exactly what I need to keep going.

LORI JOYCE

42, Entrepreneur, CEO of Betterwith Foods, Co-Founder of Cupcakes, Mother of 2

If you were to describe me in one word, it’d be “busy.” Or maybe “whirlwind,” depending on the day. As mom of two small boys and an entrepreneur twice over, I don’t really have a ton of time for just me. Which is okay. I love my family and what I do. But a few years ago, I noticed my body couldn’t keep up anymore. It was time to make myself a priority again.

The first time I climbed those steps at Studeo, I didn’t know what to expect. Sometimes gyms like this can be filled with big egos and people too cool to make eye contact. But it wasn’t like that at all. It was just a bunch of good people who wanted to be healthy.

I made a promise to myself that no matter what was happening in my life, I’d always make it to three classes a week at Studeo. I figured if regular exercise could make me a healthier, happier person, my family and businesses would benefit too.

I wasn’t wrong. Classes like Overdrive, Urban Detox and Tabata have become staples in my routine. They may go by quickly, but they consistently work me hard. It still amazes me that I can see results with such limited time to actually spend at the gym. But I do. When I’m there, for that hour or whatever, I forget everything else that’s going on in my life. It’s like a reset button. These classes have made me a better decision maker, a clearer thinker, and a more fun mom. Stress doesn’t get to me as easily. Sometimes I even wait to make a major business decision until after a Tabata class. For real.

At the end of the day, I’m not training to be a pro athlete or anything. I just want to feel good, to be able to eat the food I love (and I love food), and have enough energy to keep up with my businesses (and my kids). As long as I can stick to my 3x a week plan, I have no doubt I can achieve this, and then some.

MARK ANDREW

60, General Manager of Semiahmoo Hotel, CrossFit Champion, Grandfather

I’ve been athletic all my life. Even when I was on the road for work (a lot) I always made time for regular workouts. So when I joined Studeo, I didn’t expect anything life-changing, though I did wonder if I’d be the oldest guy there.

I started out with group classes like Urban Detox. Figured it’d be a nice way to ease myself in. Wrong. I’ve never sweat so much in my life, at least not in the last 30 years. But I liked it, so I kept going. The results came pretty organically, and I began to feel more like I belonged here. With the coaches’ encouragement, I eventually found my way to CrossFit. And that’s when things really got rolling.

I wanted to take my workouts to the next level, so I signed up for private training. My coach even worked in a custom warm-up routine with the help of the gym’s massage therapist. I’ve had a bad shoulder for years, so we always started with something to strengthen the muscle and improve mobility before moving on to the more intense stuff.

All those hours of training paid off. Last year, I qualified for the CrossFit Regionals and I placed top 60 in the world. It was crazy, but it wasn’t enough to make it to the CrossFit Games. So now I’m training even harder.

To be honest, if you’d told me I’d be doing this in my 60’s, I wouldn’t have believed you. But somehow Studeo’s been able to get me in the best shape of my life. Next Spring, I want to place in the top 20 (for 60+) at the 2017 Regionals, and then hopefully qualify for the Games. I know my trainers can get me there.

THERON WHITE

36, Registered Massage Therapist, Running & Endurance Coach, CrossFit Champion

I believe greatness comes from building a solid foundation. If you’re strong, if you know how to move your body, you’re going to reach your fitness goals. Probably surpass them. At Studeo, I wear a lot of hats. I’m a coach. I’m a massage therapist. And I also train, mostly CrossFit.

It’s the only place I’ve ever wanted to be. Whatever role I’m in, I’m always pushing for better. Whether it’s helping someone work past an injury or kill it in the CrossFit box, I’m going to see them reach that goal.

A while ago, I hurt my knee pretty bad. It was three weeks before my first half marathon. Thought I’d have to bow out. But I spent those three weeks in intense massage therapy, and it changed my whole outlook. That’s when I realized the power of massage and movement training.

I work with people both pre and post workout, depending on what their body needs. If I’m coaching, I use the same principles. You can make someone sweat, you can push them hard, but if they lack the proper technique, they’re not going to get to that next level or they’re going to hurt themselves.

I use a lot of corrective exercises, like neuro reactive training. It sounds complicated, but the science is simple: use the body’s natural instinct to resist and react to applied force. It’s a great way to improve reaction time and form when done right. I also spend a lot of time researching new techniques. Usually I test them on myself first for a few weeks and if they pass, I’ll work them into my programs.

With my own training, I push just as hard. Actually, Studeo reminds me a lot of my competitive sports days. Everybody is bonded by sweat and works together as a team. I love getting in the box. The energy in there is insane. Even though I’m a coach, I still have my own goals – like making the CrossFit Games as a Masters Athlete. It might not happen for a few years, but I’ll get there.
