It’s been almost a year since we did a Member Spotlight on our very first Rock Your Jean Challenge winner, Elaine Sumner. We’re proud to say that Elaine has kept dedicated to her goals and continues to transform her body and her life!
Not only that, but she was also selected as our Member of the Year in 2016!
In just one year, Elaine has lost 37 pounds, 18 inches and 6% bodyfat!
“I was very surprised to receive the Member of the Year Award. I was also very excited. There are so many great women at Fox Fitness and any one of them would make a great member of the year. I haven’t thought about what I have accomplished as huge or super exciting. It has been a journey, but a great one. I could not have achieved all that I have achieved without the support and encouragement of all the trainers.”
Elaine was selected as our Member of the Year for several reasons, one being her continued commitment to her own fitness, nutrition and health.
“Winning the first challenge was a huge motivation. I didn’t want to go back to the person I was before. Every little win just added to my motivation. Feeling better and becoming stronger just continued to push me.”
One thing that kept Elaine motivated was celebrating all of her wins! We believe in setting attainable goals and celebrating all of your successes, no matter how big or small.
“The fact that I never gave up was my biggest accomplishment. All the little accomplishments like fitting into size 12 jeans at the end of the year. Having to get a smaller belt size. Fitting into the same size as my daughter. All the little things add up to the big things.”
Elaine doesn’t show any sign of slowing down! She has set her 2017 goals, and we’re excited to see her reach them.
“I want to get below the 200 lb mark which has been eluding me. I don’t care how long it takes to get there I know I will get there. I also want to complete the FitRanX level 1. I also want to be able to do all my pushups on my toes. Considering I had to use the wall when I started this will be a huge accomplishment.”
Elaine stayed motivated and motivated so many others to improve their lifestyle. She has referred over 8 people into Fox Fitness this past year.
“I would tell someone who is just starting out to celebrate all the little wins no matter how small. All those little wins add up to big wins. Also make the choice to join is a step in the right direction. Don’t get discouraged because you can’t do something…you will get there. You are already doing more than you were before. Last piece of advice, rely on your trainers, that is what they are there for and they will give you all the support and encouragement you need. Also use the women in your classes as your support system. We are all there for the same reason.”
