Casey S's Success Story

What inspired you to begin your lifestyle transformation?

I knew I had gained a lot of weight and was shocked after not stepping on a scale for a long time to find that my weight had climbed to my pregnancy weight. I knew I had to make a change. As a mom, juggling a career and raising children, there was never enough time to work out, but I decided it was time to make my health a priority and make the time. A friend of mine encouraged me to give Hard Core Fit a try.

How did Hard-Core Fit help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your life?

After the first week, I immediately began to see results. I felt great from eating right and exercising. The meal plan was easy to follow and the Hard-Core Fit family provided a supportive environment encouraging success.

Tara S's Success Story

What inspired you to begin your lifestyle transformation?

After my fourth child and entering my mid 30's I decided I'm going to take better care of myself. Heart disease runs in my family, my body looked different, I wasn't happy with my aging appearance and I also had no energy.  I was thinking about joining a gym but I had never seen results from going in the past. Then I seen the email for the Hard Core Fit Challenge. What caught my eye was the meal plan and personal trainer. So I figured I'd give it a try. I need someone to tell me what to do. 

How did Hard Core Fit help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your life?

The first time going to HCF, we were explained a brief overview of the gym and how it works and Dr. Tony went over a meal plan. Once I left the gym that night I went straight to the grocery store to pick up my new healthy options. As far as the eating goes I've realized the portions I was eating was way too much and I was also skipping meals as well. This was not helping me any. While at the gym Dr. Tony switches up our exercise routine daily so we achieve results. Dr. Tony and Shannon are always there to make sure you are doing the exercises correctly and giving you that extra push. I've never got that from going to a gym. You don't feel lost at HCF.  I'm now down 9lbs and 2inches off of my waist with more energy than before.

What inspired you to begin your lifestyle transformation?

After a "bad" check up at the doctors I decided to make some changes. First and foremost was to quit smoking. Being already very much overweight I knew that I needed to be  very careful to avoid any more weight gain. I decided, once and for all, to change everything...stop smoking, lose weight and eat better. About that time a friend brought the Hard Core Fit 21 day challenge to my attention and I decided to give it a try, honestly not expecting too much.

How did Hard-core Fit help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your life?

Hard-core Fit has given me the tools to succeed. As simple as it sounds, if you follow the food guidelines and show up at the gym you will get results!  I just had to follow what Dr. Tony said! There isn't a quick fix or a magic pill, just eat better and workout. For the first time in a very long time I feel hopeful that I can actually do this!! I feel better and have more energy then I have had in years!! I still have a long way to go but with Hard-Core Fit I believe I can do it!

Lisa V's Success Story

I joined HCF for the PTA Challenge but for me it was more than just making money for our school. I wanted to get back to being healthier, and fit.  After two consecutive pregnancies, the first being twins. I had gained a lot of weight. During my first pregnancy I was on very restricted bed rest at 18 weeks and during this time I put on a lot of weight. After starting to lose that weight I became pregnant again after nine months and put the weight right back on.  The following years were difficult for me to gain control of weight with the changes my body went through adding the stress of not just three children but three children on the autism spectrum.  My life was all about them. Now with them being in school, I wanted a way to regain who I am. I tried all the popular trendy "diets" from weight watchers to Isagenix but those life styles were not for me and they did not include the fitness component. 
HCF gave me the perfect combination of both the nutritional aspect and fitness aspect that I was looking for. After the six week Challenge I signed up for a year. HCF gave me the variety I was looking for in working out as well as a comfortable, friendly environment.

"I needed something to jump start myself back into living a healthy life again. At one time, I had been in great shape. Worked out daily, ate healthy, felt awesome. And then I slacked off, typical story. A friend of mine had been pushing me to join HCF for close to a year before the challenge came along. She sent me the email and it sounded almost too good to be true. A meal plan, a personal trainer and all the advice I needed and wanted? I just couldn't let it pass me by. So I took my lazy and tired self to HCF and haven't looked back. The first few weeks I felt like I was going to die. Apparently a year of no exercise isn't good for me!But slowly I started seeing the difference. My clothes fit better and overall, I felt better. I wasn't tired all the time. I wasn't cranky all the time. I have my energyback. I'm wearing clothes I thought I'd never be back into. Yes, HCF is a gym. But it's also a community of people helping each other strive for the best, lead by a man who has more energy than should be allowed by one person. And thank God he does, because he energized my fat butt into a not so fat butt now. 🙂 "

Amy F's Success Story

What inspired you to begin your lifestyle transformation

I was so tired of not being able to do anything due to being so overweight.  Two friends gave me a push in the right direction.  I am so much happier than I was.

How did Hard Core Fit help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your life?

I started at HCF by doing a weight loss challenge.  Now I am able to move better and also breath better.  I am able to do more physical things like walking and able to help my mother a lot more around the house.  I am also eating a lot better with the help of the meal plan from the challenge.  I pack my lunches and smacks with better and healthier choices.  All of this is to keep me on the right track in my lifestyle transformation.

Kathleen's Success Story

Kathleen DiGiovani

My story.
Joined HCF in Oct 2013 as part of a corporate challenge. It was the perfect blend of nutrition assistance and physical fitness to help this 40 plus working mom get back into that pre baby shape. After the challenge ended, I became a member of HCF because the other members were welcoming and helpful and Tony tailored each workout to fit my "old age" i.e., the knees and my asthma. Two years later I am down almost 20 lbs, I have run several 5k races and my skirt says Size 4. Thank you HCF

Katelyn C's Success Story

• What inspired you to begin your lifestyle transformation?

I reached a low point in my life and I needed to make a change. I heard of the program through a friend and decided to check it out.  It was the best decision I could have made at the time. Without the support of Dr. T and the other members of this gym I don’t think I would have ever made it to where I am today.

• How did Hard-Core Fit help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your life?

It helped me reach my goal, and then some. I only joined to lose weight and now I realize that it was so much more than that. I made a life style change, and I am more satisfied than I thought I would ever be. I have more energy; I look good and feel so much better about myself. I am so happy I found and decided to commit to this program because it has changed my life completely and I love it.

I wanted to become a quicker, stronger athlete. I knew as a catcher, this program would benefit me in many different aspects.

• How did Hard-Core Fit help you achieve your goal and how have the results affected your athletic performance?

I have improved tremendously as an all around athlete. At a recruiting camp, the coaches were impressed with my endurance and quickness behind the plate. I also had to do a highly intense workout designed for one day and rest the next, however, I was able to do back to back days of this workout with no signs of fatigue.

Gina P. had the following to say about Hard Core Fit

"I have always included fitness into my lifestyle. After years of playing soccer I took about a year off from it all because it overwhelmed my life at such a young age. As I got older I knew I had to put fitness back into my life and the simple fact that I missed the challenge in my life. After trying the gym, zumba, cross fit and MMA I just wasn’t achieving the results that I had hoped for. Finally, I discovered Hard-Core Fit which literally changed my life. Because of the dedication I had and in seeing my results, I had fun and now I constantly crave more! It works so well that I feel I am never going to stop. Hard-Core Fit is what I have been looking for.

So through all the previous programs I have participated in, even though all of them were good for my health and stamina, I just never saw results like the ones I do from Hard-Core Fit. How I see results for myself is through pictures. Every year I go on vacation and I would study my pictures afterwards and every year I am happier with the way I look. I have never had abs before and ever since I joined Hard-Core Fit and put the time and effort in its hard not to crave and want more when it’s the only thing that had worked for me. As long as I can move I will be apart of the Hard- Core Fit family!"

"Being a member of Hard-Core Fitness has changed my life. I have tried going to the gym and workout videos at home and NOTHING compares to HCF. Not only have I watched my body begin to transform but my mindset has also changed. I
now think before I grab for that unhealthy snack. The encouragement and inspiration I get from Dr T and the HCFT family is what keeps me going. I'm 43 years old and have done 2 of the challenges and am feeling stronger everyday!  This is not a gym, Hard-Core Fitness training is a way of life!  Thanks Dr T!!!"

Nicole B.

 


"At 46; following two back to back surgeries; and recovering from Sandy, I simply let things go and just gave up on myself. I became depressed; fatigued and just old. Looking for a way to rebound, I found Hard Core Fit through friends and started by doing the 21 day Challenge that Dr. Tony put together. It was the breakthrough I needed! Now I am feeling great, my body is taking new shape, and I feel energized and happy. This is not just a place to work out. This is a place where you are constantly encouraged, inspired, and challenged and the people that I have come to know are just as awesome! This place charges not just your body, but your heart and your mind! Thanks HCF!"

"I have always been an active person and I enjoy challenging, creative workouts. After being stuck in a "workout rut" for a few months, I've discovered HCF which has given me back my motivation. Not only do I feel great working out again but I'm seeing amazing results. Dr. Riello understands the true concept of fitness and works with people on all levels. I would recommend HCF to anyone from fitness fanatics like myself to beginners looking to get in shape." -Jen After 3 months

“As a Varsity Lacrosse player, i was looking for that extra edge and was not finding it in the gym. In just one week my balance,coordination,and strength has greatly improved doing the Hard Core Fit work out.”

Dom D.  (17) (Varsity Lacrosse Player)

"Starting out at HCF, I could only do about 5 pushups and a few good form situps. I was also one of the slowest players on my lacrosse team and it showed.  After 3 months in HCF my body has changed tremendously.  I can now do 50+ pushups and 12 Jackknife situps, which went horribly during my orientation.  The best though, I am one of the fastest players on my team and got to watch the jaws of my teammates drop the first day of practice this year.  HCF has given me so much more speed and strength for Lacrosse, but also energy to get through school. No one works harder than the HCF athletes.

HCF has changed my life completely in just 3 months. I went from always being in the middle of the pack for Lacrosse to leading the front.  My balance, coordination, strength and especially speed is tremendously greater than what I ever imagined. The HCF family is amazing is amazing and will always push you farther.  I am 100% in better condition going into this lacrosse season then ever before and so confident now that I will be successful."

"Awesome. It worked every part of my body I need for soccer."
Nicole (17) Award Winning High School Varsity Goalie


"The workout was so fun and fast-paced, I had no time to think about the fact that I was actually getting a great workout.  It was the best work out I have ever had and I have been to many personal trainers and many boot camps.  This by far exceeds them all in every way." 
Lauren F.  (34) ( Fitness enthusiast)


I was never an athlete and became conscious about getting fit only 5 years ago.  My basic routine was 20-30 min. cardio  followed by light weight lifting at the gym.  I never liked working out but have stayed committed with minimal results attempting to slow down my middle aged weight gain ( with no weight loss ).  Dr. Riello explained in detail the Hard Core Fit program but it just seemed simply impossible for someone like me to do well with it.  I did not want to try it, but I finally agreed to give it a chance.  I went to the orientation class to get more familiar with the system, the equipment and the exercises.  Watched a little of an in session class, did the orientation but my fears were not gone.  I still felt it was not for me.  However, Dr. Riello assured me I could go at my own pace so I decided to try the Hard Core Fit class.  Now, after my second class, I have to admit it is actually pretty fun.  It moves you so quickly from exercise to exercise you don't have a chance to get bored or concentrate on how difficult it is.  It is truly a new way to bring excitement and fun to your workouts with great results as well.  I am happy I tried it and am excited to continue and think about the possibilities as my body continues to respond."
