I absolutely love bootcamp!
I am a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer, professional athlete, mountain climber, marathon competitor, and owner and operator of IanFitness Inc., but most importantly, I’m a fitness and weight loss expert.
And as you can see from this photograph of me when I was 8, I’ve been very serious about it for a long time.

I absolutely love bootcamp!
I was really afraid of quitting, or failing, or being pushed too hard. You haven’t pushed me too hard, but you also don’t let me coast. I am not sure how you are doing it, but you are motivating me. No one has ever really been able to do that. I’m not afraid any more (mostly), I don’t want to quit, and I’m starting to think that maybe I won’t fail. So thanks. You’re good at your job, and you are helping me.
I would like to take this time to thank you and you staff. Here is my Ian Fitness experience by the numbers.
I started working at Seattle Children’s hospital in 1977 at 202 lbs. With 36 years there I had managed to gain one pound a year. In the past four years I’ve been able to lose 13 of those pounds permanently. On March 1st I began my Ian Fitness adventure, to date, I am 27lbs. lighter. I weigh what I did as a graduating senior from high school. I am wearing the same size pants that I wore all through high school. In the past four months my HDL (good cholesterol) is up 19% while my bad cholesterol is down 13%. My numbers have changed so much that my doctor gave me a hug after she read them.
My transformation is not yet complete but you have mapped out a successful course that the numbers emphatically support.
I look forward to a to a fitness partnership with you and your staff for many years to come.
While I was very nervous to get started Ian immediately made me feel at ease. At the very beginning I was insecure and really struggling with my self-esteem. I’d taken care of everything and everyone but myself. But once I decided to get healthy, I really committed to it. I didn’t realize how important being accountable to someone else would be but it really did make a difference.
I don’t remember my first workout with Ian but I do remember Ian reassuring me that I could do it.That being said, within weeks of starting with Ian, I found that I was seeing progress. I looked forward to going into the gym because each time I did; I got to try a new workout.
I have been working with Ian for about 7 months and have lost about 55 pounds.I am very proud of the progress I have made. I have energy, I sleep better, and I laugh more often and have more fun. Over the years I have worked several trainers, but never have I worked with someone who was so invested in me and my fitness goals. He has been one of my biggest cheerleaders and is the best teammate you could ask for in this process. He truly cares about making you the best version of yourself and for that I will be forever grateful.
I’ve been training with and receiving nutrition counseling from Natalie for the past four months. In January, I finally decided to take her advice and got serious about improving my diet. Since then I’ve gone from 210 to 184 lbs. Natalie’s glowing enthusiasm and genuine concern for my fitness is apparent every time I talk to her. She’s sweet, encouraging, funny, and truly listens to all of my needs and helps me create a program that works within my schedule. She goes the extra mile by monitoring my food log online, sending me links to healthy recipes, and of course, pushing me beyond my limits twice a week at the gym. Natalie is such a pleasure to work with; I can’t recommend her highly enough.
To say I was hesitant to embark on a “get fit” program with a personal trainer is an understatement. I am a 56-year-old overweight woman whose athletic prowess ended decades ago. But things have changed. Armed with a New Year’s resolution and prodding from my son, I found Ian (and “Ian’s Fitness”) — my own personal trainer.
It’s been three months since that first early morning meeting with Ian at the gym. And I couldn’t be more pleased or surprised. Ian has helped me to feel comfortable, confident and motivated. And what a difference three months have made! Three mornings a week I meet up with Ian before work and WOW — I’ve lost 40 pounds, can cinch my belt two notches tighter, and my stamina, balance and strength have increased incredibly.
Ian’s workouts are varied, fun and challenging. And while it may be hard some early mornings to hop into my workout clothes and head for the gym, I am never sorry once I get there. Ian is helping me to change my life – and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you so much for all that you have helped me accomplish!
I have been working out with Ian for a little over a year and I still look forward to each session. Ian always has new workouts, great energy, and a positive attitude to help you get through any challenge. I have seen excellent results and continue to grow stronger and more energetic after each workout. I have worked out with several trainers and Ian is by far the best trainer I have ever had. His workouts are cutting edge and never repetitive. He makes getting up and going to the gym worth it!
The one thing that stands out from last year (2010, you were not a fun time) as probably the best thing I did for myself was participating in the IanFitness Boot Camp. (Well, there were two things. I’m really happy I adopted a dog, too, but that’s another story.) Boot camp is really fun and a great stress reliever. It’s fast paced, never boring or repetitive and it does get results. I started in the summer, and after one month, I got stronger, leaner and healthier, and I really appreciated having it as part of my routine.
It’s super affordable for the number of classes you get to attend and since it’s held twice a day (6:15 AM and 7:45 PM), it’s easy to fit into your schedule. The sessions are around 30 minutes and are a combination of cardio (warm up jogging, sprints and other) and a number of exercises that utilize many different muscle groups at once (core, shoulders, arms, butt, legs), making the most of every second of the workout. During the summer, sessions are held outside at a park on Queen Anne and the winter months are inside at ProRobics (also on QA or Laurelhurst).
Everyone has fun because the trainers are upbeat and clearly love what they do. Also, there’s no reason to be intimidated or competitive with others as everyone works to his or her own level. I’ve enjoyed this boot camp and the way it makes me feel so much that it totally shifted my lifestyle to be about getting exercise and fresh air, getting a lot of rest in the evenings and eating well—as opposed to a steady habit of happy hours and sacking out on the couch by 7:30, exhausted from drinks and pub food during the week. My going-out budget now goes to boot camp! So, double whammy on improving health habits!
Ian’s Fitness is a fantastic work out. Great trainers and great workouts that make you feel great afterwards. I actually look forward to attending these workout classes and leave feeling motivated. It’s a great environment and the results speak for themselves. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the Seattle area.
I love the IanFitness-style workouts! Ian has helped change my life. Instilling a positive attitude, discipline, and fun active workouts have made all the difference.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about IanFitness. Bootcamp has helped me tremendously in my weight loss and transition into a healthier lifestyle. When I started, I was at an unhealthy weight and needed to change it fast. I was really nervous about being too out of shape to make through my first Bootcamp but alas, I did it.. Each day, the exercises were different and I never got bored. In fact, I was looking forward to a new day to see what we were doing next. I could tell a difference in my mood and energy level, I’ve never felt better. Not to mention I was losing weight, the healthy way, and it was actually doable! I have lost 30 pounds since I started Bootcamp with IanFitness and I intend to increase that number. With IanFitness, I have no doubt that I can do it.
I was a bit nervous to start the camp because I wasn’t sure if my level of fitness was up to par, but after the first couple of days with encouragement from the staff and a workout environment conducive to success, I was inspired to work harder. Ian does a great job of encouraging the campers while also pushing them constructively. It is evident that Ian sees the potential in everyone to reach their own goals and I really got a feeling that he wants those goals for us as much as we do. The camp really provides an air of confidence in a group setting. Whether in the morning or the afternoon, everyone in the camp is working and struggling together and it really helps make you want to push yourself and others to succeed. The workouts that we do are setup to where each person can work at their own pace, yet are still able to push themselves when they want to. We had to start at 6:15 every morning for three days a week and it was early but it gave me more energy throughout the day and was a great start and end to every week. We were also provided with a meal plan and an extra cardio workout for off days as well as a day to rest. This complete program helped me feel better about my fitness gave me more energy and encouraged me to want more and work hard for myself because I deserve it. I will definitely be attending the summer camp and as many camps as I can in the future. Thanks Ian!
Ianfitness has changed my life in so many incredible ways! I had packed on weight weight being a full time mother and a caregiver to my husband. I was busting out out of my size 12 jeans, eating really unhealthy, had very low energy, and was tired of hiding in hoodies. I have since dropped 6 sizes, gained muscles, lost inches, and my nutrition is based on clean eating. I am so thankful for Ianfitness. The workouts are challenging but worth every minute. My confidence has grown and I set new goals for myself with health and fitness. It’s no longer about the number on the scale anymore. It’s about the way I feel: strong, fit & capable. Thank you IanFitness.
