Trainer Channéll is ecstatic at Edan’s results! As an athlete, Edan struggled when getting pregnant. Initially, she did not like to train with others but found community at Inspire Me Mommy classes. Then, she set out to train for a half marathon and triathlon relay! We have had the pleasure of coaching Edan in nutrition, personal training, lifestyle coaching to help her take 1st place in both triathlon relays and run her half marathon post-baby!
Trainer Channéll is very proud of how far this mother/daughter duo have come in just one year! Training 2-3 times a week privately and taking 1-2 fitness classes with IBP per week, Rachel and Rosemary have lost over 20 pounds and 20 inches! Great work for sharing 10 children between the two of them! It’s NEVER too late.
Trainer Channéll works with her client Tim on simple base motor skills. Time has recovered from a stroke and put in his gym time training to be as functional as he can be at this point in his life. No matter what happens in life, you must always work hard at being your best. Great job Tim!
“I started taking Channell’s free to the community, Shape Up Reno Bootcamp, and I feel like that really kick-started my body. I had definitely made progress by then and begun losing weight, but I feel like my weight loss has been supercharged and much more steady over the last 3 months. I’ve only been weighing myself about every 3 weeks, and have been down 3 pounds each time the last several times I’ve weighed.
As I mentioned, I didn’t start this because I was necessarily upset with how I looked, but I wasn’t happy with how I felt.
Now I feel healthier, I’m stronger than I’ve ever been, and I’m certainly not complaining about the 3 sizes I have shed!” weighed.
I have now lost 28 pounds since January of this year. I feel like I have a clearer goal in mind, and for the first time it seems possible. A year ago I would have told you I couldn’t run from my bedroom to the front door if my house was on fire; now I go for regular jogs around my neighborhood on days I don’t make it in to the gym!

I met Channéll more then a year ago. I was coming back from a injury on my knee, I was overweight, and not very motivated. I was just generally working out to get back on shape. Then, she invited me to her Saturday morning bootcamp. I said “…I don’t know – I work graveyard, I’m off at 8am” and she replied “Well, bootcamp isn’t until 10am, you have time to get here.”
I realized that my shift and scheduling was not a valid excuse to her. So, I agreed by saying “Sure I`ll be there”. After the first class I was ready for more! So I after a year of being a bootcamp addict, I want to say thank you Channéll for being an amazing trainer.
More then that, I would like to say thank you for also being life coach who always has a positive attitude, is willing to teach, and is always smiling. It’s obvious you are loving what you do. I think everyone should try Channèll’s bootcamp, I guarantee they’ll keep coming back!

I have tried dieting and exercise in the past, but they never worked because I didn’t stick to the programs. I had a difficult time sticking to programs when I was the only one trying; while others around me were eating ice cream and unhealthy foods. I felt a lack of support.
Now, I am determined to reach my goals whether or not family and friends support me. I came to this conclusion after I signed back up for personal training with Channéll. I quit a year ago after working with a trainer for a brief period of time because I did not continue my discipline or motivation. I have decided I want to do the best that I can regardless of what others want to do with their bodies.
I currently am losing weight, inches, staying accountable and determined working with Channéll 2-3 days per week, and on my own 2-3 days. My minimum goal is to lose 50 more pounds! I feel confident I will reach my goals this time with the support I have from Channéll who make me feel positive and welcomed!
I am determined to reach my goal and NOTHING is going to stop me!!
