Hear What Some of our Members Have To Say...

177 lbs – unhappy & unhealthy. Tight size 14 jeans. Waddled when I walked. Couldn’t run 2 minutes without feeling like my lungs were going to explode.  Diet consisted of mainly high carbs, high fat and an occasional vegetable. Wow – looking back it seems like a lifetime ago but it really wasn’t. That was me in 2009 when I first started ED meals and buddy training with Win. I dropped 32 pounds but foolishly let old bad habits creep back into my life and I slowly gained back 15 of my 32 lost pounds.  At first it was just a pound and then another and by 2011 I was almost big enough to wear size 14 again. I made the decision that I wasn’t going to let myself slide backwards any further and that I was not going back to the “old me” so I gladly signed up for Earthly Delights’ first ever “Just Win” program. This was a 6 month commitment to train with Win 5 day a week and to eat Earthly Delights’ meals 4X/day, 7 days/wk. I started this at 157 lbs and 24.8% body fat. This program ended in March and I’m really happy and bummed at the same time.  Happy because I am now down to 133 lbs and 14.5% body fat and I feel so much better - both emotionally and physically.  I have so much energy and have a lot more self confidence. Bummed bec the group workouts were so much fun and I really miss them. 

 Training with Win, we never knew what to expect when we came to the studio. One day we would be out in the parking lot flipping tractor tires, the next day dragging our torsos across the studio floor using only our upper bodies or whipping giant heavy ropes up and down. Always interesting and very challenging. I can’t say that I miss the food; the reason for that is I still eat their meals 7 days/week! The meals are convenient but the main reason I continue to eat them is that the food is real, not “diet” food which makes staying on the plan a pleasure, not a challenge.
If I were to rate Earthly Delights’ food and workouts with Win at Earthly Delights Fitness, I would give 6 stars even though the rating scale only goes to 5.  Win of Earthly Delights gets an extra star because he really brightened up my life.  I recommend that anyone interested in getting healthy contact Earthly Delights, they make it easy to commit and get fit.

I can't say enough wonderful, amazing, spectacular, super, awesome things about Earthly Delights Fitness (EDF), it's instructors & fitness programs. I started their Zumba & UJAM classes in early March of this year & so far have lost 14 pounds since then & counting, wooh-hoo!!! The BEST part about this weight loss isn't just the weight loss itself. I am having a blast & learning to dance,,, it doesn't even feel like I'm working out, just having a great, great time with the awesome people in the classes I've met so far!!! A sincere thank you to: Win Shortland, Lizzy Liz Fichtner, Elena Crandell, Jessica Manzano, Belinda Adel Berdan & Beatriz Rish. Lovin my EDF

I have to mention my great appreciation for the excellent training, and knowledge I've received from Earthly Delights Fitness. I originally joined EDF to augment my martial arts training and to try out some of the many interesting classes that were being offered. I thought I was already pretty knowledgeable from my long background of fitness experiences but had no idea just how much I would learn, improve, and achieve here.

Win's Get Fit Circuit Training program has proven to be just fantastic. His life long, well informed experience, and training techniques have done wonders for augmenting my martial arts training. I credit him with making me much healthier, and stronger while helping to eliminate pains and injuries from imbalances or other less complete workouts! Smart, intelligent conditioning is crucial in an effective training plan at any level and Win expertly handles multiple levels of capabilities during any given class. I am very grateful for his knowledge, and excellent instruction and I look forward to developing even further!

The Ujam classes here are highly spirited, and every bit as enjoyable as they are effective. Lizzy Liz leads as a standout instructor and superior example of what any good Ujam experience can be. Her super positive, high energy classes add to the cardio blast. Her influence on seriously changing peoples lives for the better is undeniable, evident not only by the many students she has inspired, but also the group unity that surrounds her. Aside from the obvious cardio, weight loss, and toning benefits that come from Ujam, it has also turned out to be an excellent way for improving, and maintaining flexibility which is very important to me in preventing exercise related injuries at advanced training levels.

Whatever your exercise preference, or fitness goals, there is a class here for you. Regardless of your current fitness condition, or goals, whether it be weight loss, cardio conditioning, or strength building, the potential to exceed, and achieve new levels of fitness is open to us all here!

I am 41 yrs old, 5’2”, 2 daughters.  I’ve never been fat, but I certainly carry 50 lbs I don’t need.  I suppose I am borderline obese, although I am blessed with a structure that hides well the lbs (I am plump all over J) I got used to the idea that this was the way it was going to be.  I slowly began to notice and accept that I would probably end up looking like my loving memory of my mom… then I realized and asked myself the question:  why??? Of course, I had heard it all before, I have read magazines that talked about the important of exercise and eating healthy, blah, blah, blah…  but I was not motivated or inspired to change. In late November 2011, my friend Tracy invited me to join her Kickboxing class at EDF.  I came expecting nothing – only going to try the class, and just go once a week, but mostly to share a class with Tracy. I had no personal expectations, or commitments.  I wanted bonding time with a friend. I met Win on my 2nd day at EDF. He encouraged me to try the Group Classes; I opted for Zumba, as I was intimidated by U-Jam.  A few days later, I was trying U-Jam - I hesitated at first and concentrated on feet only, then progressively became more enthralled in the beats and rhythms. Most importantly, the people around the room are contagious; the instructors make it fun, and safe to try new things. Suddenly, I felt all inhibitions go; I no longer felt self-conscience. Next was the feeling of freedom and flying on the dance floor!  All within a matter of weeks!

 So, this year, I've actually put mind and body together with my soul to become who I was created to be: To love and feel loved, to make a commitment to myself so that I can enjoy others as well and life at large.  In my old head tapes, I heard selfishness every time I tried to take care of my body. All I needed to do was feed the mind, because the mind is the most important thing... This is correct up to a point. When I joined I weighed 168 lbs.  Today (4/2012) I weigh 143 and dropping.  I have received great instruction, education, dedication, and encouragement from Win, Inspiration, determination and accountability from Lizzy Lizz. They are a powerful duo. Thank you for what you do.  And for making dreams come true.  We feel at home at EDF.  Your commitment to see our dreams flourish along with yours is unstoppable.  I have seen Win encourage, challenge, laugh with us, babysit for a mom taking a class, going extra miles for a client going through a very hard time.  I have shared tears on the dance floor hearing Lizzy Liz inspire us to dig inside of us and bring forth the best in us.  I came without expectations, or dreams… Until I heard Lizz say “If you don’t have a dream, you better get one!”  I did! This is not a regular gym.  This is a place of caring, growth and support.

I started Earthly Delights in August of 2011 as they offer U-Jam every day of the week. Little did I know that they would have so much more to offer…. The class sizes are small, the people are real, and the instructors are truly committed to helping the members reach their fitness goals. Losing the extra weight has always been a goal of mine and not until I joined the ‘Commit To Be Fit’ program at EDF, did it become a reality.  Win and Liz say, “Simply show up, and we’ll do the rest!” So true – they have introduced me to a ‘clean’ and healthy lifestyle and the results are amazing! Since I joined EDF, I have lost over 30 pounds (and counting) and am embracing a stronger, fitter ME!

 EDF Team – words can’t begin to express my gratitude for all the ways you challenge, inspire, and help me reach my fitness goals everyday!

My journey with U-Jam started in October 2010, and at EDF in August 2011. I joined the commit to be fit group that launched in January 2012  After seeing the amazing results that LizzyLiz had with the Flygurrls in May 2011, and then with The Swag Sistahs in Dec 2011 i, I just had to join and be a part of it!  I have learned SOO much more about health and nutrition from Liz and Win, and their encouragement,support and discipline have helped me drop 46 lbs total! (I lost some before in Dec when the Swag sistahs were encouraging me to join with them, and I lost 18, and when I went full force on the diet and exercise plan on C2BFIT, I lost another 28, plus almost 14% of body fat. I went from 2x to an XL, and now its time to get a new wardrobe!) I was always skeptical about losing weight, and it was hard to find a diet/lifestyle change where u truly get results! I have been struggling with my weight, high blood pressure and all the things that go with being overweight, and i figured that I would just be stuck taking pills for the rest of my life. I had worked out for years with cardio, but didn't get the results until I fully committed to the C2BFIT program. I have muscles and definition in places where fat reigned supreme, and am still working to reach my goal of 60 +lbs total. With the love, support and accountability to my C2BFIT group on FB, I am confident that I can not only reach my goals, but will successfully help and encourage others to do so as well! Thank u Liz and Win for all your hard work and training-it truly has been a blessing to me and to my family! Much love 2 u all, Just believe!

I just want to say thank you so much to Win and Liz for changing my life. I have been trying to loose weight now ever since I had my two children who are now 5 & 6 years old. I have tried personal trainers and other "Big Gyms" and haven't been able to lose any weight. I started thinking whats wrong with me I am  gaining more and more weight every year since I turned  40. I even tried eating salads and running for one hour, but couldn't loose any weight. Then a month and a half ago when I was on FB a friend I hadn't seen in almost 2 years told me she had started going to Earthly Delights Fitness and she had lost a lot of weight and she was having fun exercising. She told me about Liz's eating clean diet plan and Ujam and how she was addicted to this new dance class. It sounded like fun so I went and tried it out. A month and a half later I am down 31 LB. I believe the success to my weight lost is the support and unity from not just the owner and trainers but everyone at Earthly Delight Fitness gym. They really treat you like family not just another client. Win and Liz really care about your well-being and success. Now I am so addicted to all the classes there I do Ujam,kickboxing,Get fit and Zumba! The gym is also kid friendly so  there are no excuses ,and the kids have fun too! In fact my daughter loves Ujam also. I know my goal weight is achievable now that I have EDF family supporting and believing in me. If you want to get healthy ,loose weight and have fun with the best trainers and just being surrounded by great positive energy then EDF is the place for you! No excuses! Just come and try it out and you will see results, it really works.
