Elevate Fitness Studio’s recent Mommy Makeover movement was a hugely successful event. So much so in fact that 11 of the group members went on to hike 10,064 feet up Mt. Baldy. These wilderness warriors woke up at 2 a.m. to begin their hiking mission alongside other determined mommas and two Elevate trainers.
“This was my first hike since I was a little girl,” shares local mom Iraida Stephens, “I was nervous as we started out and I just kept thinking can I do this?”
For Stephens and her fellow hikers the experience reaching the top of Mt. Baldy was nothing short of overwhelmingly positive. With the support and encouragement of the group they were able to not only revel in the fact that they had made it to the summit, but also to enjoy the incredible view while watching a breathtaking sunrise.
“I didn’t realize how challenging the hike would be for all of us,” said mom Shauni Calhoun. “It felt amazing to be at the top of the mountain, but I don’t think many of us, including myself, would have made it without the support from trainers Paul and Jennifer. “
“The faith that Paul and Jen had in all of us is what allowed me to be able to keep putting one foot in front of the other,” said Michelle Hauck, “on my own I would not have believed I could do it.”
“These great coaches inspired us to make the challenge something we would always remember,” shared Cassie MacPherson, “and I loved being a part of a group of mommies who worked to motivate each other as well.”
"We are so proud of EACH one of the Moms that did the hike. This is a very challenging hike with a 4,000-foot vertical incline and descent. It's the hardest thing most of them had ever done. I know it wasn't going to be easy for them, but with the proper rest, hydration, fuel and focusing on 1 step at a time, it's amazing how much people can accomplish. We are still on a high thinking about each one of their accomplishments," boasts Paul David, Head coach and Elevat owner.
Elevate Fitness offers a completely different experience than any other gym. The hike up Mt Baldy was an experience that has motivated moms to accomplish challenges even beyond physical fitness.
