Success Stories & Testimonials
Congratulations to first time Flying Pig 10k finisher and #IWOW, Marievee Santana! "I ran my fastest 10k ever and attribute the improvement to TRX," she says! Way to go!
Tiffani Fisher is It's Working Out's latest IWOW spotlight. Read her inspirational story:
"I love IWO for multiple reasons. First, I am more than an account here. At IWO, I am a person, with a name... a name that people know! Everyone is SO welcoming and encouraging! Not only are the trainers awesome, but the people attending the classes are just as awesome. It feels like such a community and a home away from home at IWO. Secondly, this may sound weird, but I am starting to like me again. I gained a lot of weight over the past two years which took a big toll on my confidence and general outlook on life. Since joining IWO around two months ago, I am starting to see results, which is helping me regain my confidence, and it feels great! Thirdly, working out at IWO is certainly making me a happier and more positive person.
Thanks to the lovely people, trainers and endorphins, I always leave so happy and I carry this mood into my day. So not only is it helping me physically, it is also helping me mentally, which I believe is just as important!"
CJ & Elizabeth Schmidt are this week's #IWOW! They've been taking TRX for over a year and really noticed a difference this year on the slopes! "I just can't believe how strong we've become," said Elizabeth. They credit TRX for their new ability to ski all day without getting tired and for easier runs on the moguls!
This week's #IWOW is Dede Denning! Dede noticed a huge difference after hitting the slopes for the first time since she began Rowing at IWO. "Normally I would be way more short of breath and tired out west, but I felt great and was much more fluid," she said. "Watch your back, Lindsey Vonn!"
This week's #IWOW is Sara Steinwart. After hitting a wall of being able to get away with not working out consistently and being able to stay “in shape” and bouncing from group workout class to another she was feeling lethargic and gaining weight where it was not welcome. Then she found TRX at IWO. "I’m going on 18 months at It’s Working Out and LOVE IT," she says. "My troubled knees are more stable and I've been able to start running again for the first time in 4 years. The strong core and long lean muscles from TRX have made me in the best shape of my adult life!"
This week's #IWOW, Dave Brown, went "from chump to champ!" Big into goal setting and executing, Dave was feeling like a "chump" after months had past and he hadn't taken any steps toward one of his main goals of 2015, get into better shape. Upon this realization, he took action and began personal training 3x a week and Rowing at IWO. His journey began in October. Fast forward 5 months, Dave has shed 10 total inches, greatly increased his physical strength and endurance, kicked a bad Diet Coke habit and continues to set and crush short and long term goals! "My measurements were important to me, but more than that, I'm a happier person, my mental focus has improved and best of all, I don't feel like a chump."
Today's #IWOW goes to Cindi Acree and her success in the Heart Mini Marathon. "Thanks to my Feb/March IWO training I was able to motor up all the hills, especially Torrence Pkwy, AND get a PR!" Way to go Cindi, keep it up!
This week's #IWOW goes to "The Sister Act" Virginia and Hope Schmidt. When Virginia first started TRX class at 5:45am Hope thought she was crazy, but it takes one to know one because the 5:45am class has become a fixture in both of their lives! "The classes keep us fit, healthy and happy. We both agree, the best part is being able to workout with your best friend."
My experience at IWO has been awesome. I’ve been able to build strength and keep up my cardio with early morning ROW classes and a mix of TRX and circuits throughout the week. IWO has offered diverse workouts from a great group of trainers that deliver challenging but fun classes that have proven rewarding from the start.

“Rowing is fun, easier on my body, and has made me a much stronger runner and healthier person overall. I really appreciate all of the IWO instructors who motivate me towards challenge and improvement, rather than perfection.”
"I love that TRX offers me something different from running....as a marathon runner, I can see my running and overall fitness becoming stronger as I continue the TRX classes and strengthening my core."
Working out with Nikki has been one of the highlights of my 2017! I was so nervous finding a new personal trainer after working with my old PT for over 2 years but Nikki has been such a seamless transition and I’ve seen more results from working out with her in the last 6 months then the past 2 years! In the last 6 months I’ve lost 2.25in around my waist! First off the facilities are beautiful and always clean! The equipment is top notch and the workouts Nikki puts together for me are AMAZING! I love that I can track my heart rate on the TV screen while I’m working out and then am sent a summary of my workout after I’m done. Nikki’s attention to detail and thought that goes into the workouts she plans is extremely impressive. She always has something new for me to try which keeps it fun and makes the time fly by! She’s also a joy to be around and motivates me when I’m dragging which I appreciate so much! I highly recommend It’s Working Out, I’m so grateful to have found such a welcoming and fun place to go!!!
"Kristen, you continue to be a great trainer that I don't take for granted. You are one of a kind."
"Pushing and praising at just the right time. My measurements were important to me, but more than that, I'm a happier person!"
"Your studio is the AWESOM-EST!!"
"My favorite success since coming to It's Working Out is the reduction in shoulder pain I've had. I play ALOT of tennis and almost quit due to constant muscle soreness and pain. With the help of Kristen and the IWO professionals, I've strengthened my shoulder to the point that I no longer worry about it when I play. Or, actually...ever!! I also was fortunate enough to work through a knee injury this past winter after a 9 year old took me out getting off a ski lift, and run the Flying Pig 1/2 marathon. I wasn't fast but I made it due to the strength I had from all the lower body work we do with the TRX.Thanks IWO."
"How unexpected to be greeted by name when I walk into class. How welcoming, especially for someone new to the studio. I noticed the studio on my house hunting trip. Now that I have tried rowing, TRX and Yoga I am even more impressed! What a nice studio and quality teaching!"
"The instruction exceeded my expectations. Clear instructions and so fun. The best workout I've ever had!"
- J. K.
"I'm not the fastest rower or the strongest at TRX, but no one judges, and each day I improve. It is great to see results and to enjoy this wonderful facility. I've lost inches, regained energy and restful nights of sleep."
"I'm so thankful to TRX! It's made a huge difference in my life and my health. You have the best trainers in Cincy."
I absolutely love the TRX and Rowing classes offered by It's Working Out. The trainers are friendly and do a great job of facilitating the work out classes. I really enjoy the rowing classes which pushes me to get my cardio up! I would recommend this studio to anyone looking to get into great shape!
"You are sooo wonderful. I love TRX. I love you and the instructors. I love the participants and our TRX community. I love the workout. And, I love the transformation it has made in how I feel and look." -Jeff Goodman (Of course, we feel the same about Jeff!)
- It's Working Out Team
"I have more energy, have shed some pounds, and shrunk my waistline from TRX classes. The expertise of all the trainers makes the time fly by as we are working hard with good tunes and burning calories! Thank you TRX!"
In 6 months of regular TRX and ROW (3-4 x /week), I have shed 15 pounds and dropped an entire dress size. I have more strength and endurance than I've had in decades. Thanks to the warm reception into this fun community, the instructors' enthusiasm and encouragement, this couch potato is reformed!
"TRX is a fantastic full body workout! It not only gives you bursts of cardio but also is a great resistance training. It worked muscles I forgot I even had and made it extremely enjoyable. Kristen is very knowledgeable and positive which makes TRX that much better!"
"I am loving TRX. Most motivated I have been in a while about my workouts. I love how it is always different."
"I wish I would have taken a "before" picture prior to starting TRX! I never ever thought I could get the body I have now. Within two weeks I saw such a dramatic difference in my shape, I just knew I could only get better...and I have! Girlfriends have asked if I had plastic surgery! The best thing is the time in class flies by. Are you afraid of thinking you will look stupid or can't follow the moves? Wrong! It is as if you are getting a private lesson and a class combined! The instructors make you feel so comfortable and the attendees are concentrating on their own form so no one is looking at anyone else."
"TRX has been a game changer for me. I get a terrific workout no matter which instructor or class. I look and feel more fit, and as a long time swimmer, I notice my endurance and strength has improved dramatically since I've incorporated TRX into the mix!"
"It's Working Out"...really because Kristen and her staff make this so fun and fresh you almost forget you are working out! Don't be fooled though, this is an all over body workout you're sure to feel the next day. The TRX trained staff are so knowledgeable they are able to focus on every muscle group in each 50 minute session giving you the all over body workout you crave. Their enthusiasm keeps class moving in an upbeat fashion moving from triceps, to hamstrings, on to obliques, the whole while making it adaptable for every level of fitness. Incorporating this workout into your regular fitness routine is sure to give you the results you have been looking for!"
"When I first started TRX it was challenging, but definitely worth the time and effort. I had a pair of pants that I thought needed the waist let out. I was preparing to get them altered when I decided to try them on one more time. To my astonishment, the pants no longer needed let out due to my waistline decreasing. It was simply because the great TRX workouts were "pulling in my waistline."
"I have been taking TRX classes for about a month and my pants are already so much looser and I'm getting tons of compliments. I am losing inches. I feel so much stronger, too."
"Fun and fabulous :)"
