My relationship with Infinity Fitness AZ was initiated by Scottsdale Soccer ‘Blackhawks’. The Blackhawks is the largest soccer Club in Arizona and we wanted to find a speed, agility and strength organization to align our training for the children in our Club. I was immediately impressed with Chase, Heather and Mike – their knowledge and their care.

I started working out at the facility this summer and committed to the Fitness Challenge this past September. My goal for the Fitness Challenge was to lose over 20 lbs and the commitment was simple from Chase and Heather – commit to the facility three times a week and follow the eating and supplement plan. Three things really helped motivate me – My Fitness Pal is a great tool to hold you accountable and to give you a sense of your intake, the wall of either achievement or shame – depending on your outlook in life – was both humbling and motivating, and the 6am class is always a fun group to remind you if you start off course! Members who have completed previous challenges are also a great resource to help you particularly with nutritional ideas.

Through the experience I reached out to Chase and Heather a couple of times and they gave me great feedback and aside from being disciplined and accountable to myself, I simply followed the plan outlined. I ended up losing 22 lbs through the challenge and 4.3% in body fat.

If you are thinking of doing it in January, don’t hesitate – it is great fun, very motivating and for myself life changing.



You know you’ve created a good goal for yourself when it scares you. I must have created a really good goal, because I’m terrified! Four weeks ago, I hired an IFBB Physique Pro to help me train for my first Figure Competition. This means on November 14th, I will be walking on stage in a teeny tiny bikini and 5 inch high heels in front of hundreds of people to be judged on the physique I bring to the stage. I have created a goal to put myself outside my comfort zone, to hold myself more accountable than ever, and do something I never thought I was physically and/or mentally capable of doing.

I knew I needed to do something dramatic. I am a big advocate of the saying “practice what you preach.” I teach everyone else how to work out, how to eat, how to create good goals for themselves, and tell everyone to overcome temptation to become a better version of “you.” To everyone else, I was in decent shape already; however I wanted more and wanted to be better. I have always been told I should compete, but always just laughed it off and insisted I was not in THAT kind of shape. But why couldn’t I create that?

Three weeks ago I started dieting hard, training even harder, implemented 3am cardio sessions before work, and started working with a posing coach. I knew it was going to be hard, but this is definitely a full time job in itself. So far, it’s totally worth it! My body is transforming into something it has never been before, I’m seeing muscle definition I never have before, and I’m actually eating more than I ever have before too! I’m excited (and terrified!) to share this journey with everyone, glad I have so many people to hold me accountable, and I am VERY thankful for the support I am getting from my Infinity Fitness AZ family.

(I will be competing in the NPC Western Regional in Mesa, AZ on November 14th, Figure division; visit http://www.npcmilesproductions.com for details, pictures, and tickets.)
