I’m motivated by the up coming summer and want to get back into great physical condition like I was when I was competing in mixed martial arts and most importantly of all my general health.
I’m motivated to get back into my summer body after a long winter of bulking up and lifting hard and heavy. But now it’s time to slim down and show my gains, but as anyone that works out as hard as I do knows it takes a lot of dedication and motivation to hit your goals or close to it anyway. Well I really hope I’m picked for the Nexercise March madness challenge. Thank you.

Sarah G. – Alpharetta, GA
I am motivated by my family. They have been cheering for me my whole life. When I was four years old, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor on my optic nerve. It impaired my vision and it was hard for me to do anything really active. After going through chemo for two years from age 4 to 6 it shrunk; however, summer of 2012, MRI showed growth.
Doctors didn’t know what to do. Now I am on a clinical trial medication that breaks down my muscle and increases my CPK levels. Exercise is a burden. Thankfully, my family is still right by my side pushing me through. I am on my high school swim team (state champs for two years in a row!!!) and enjoy kickboxing and taking a stroll in the beautiful outdoors! I’d like to thank Nexercise for giving me the opportunity to have a little extra motivation while working out and whenever I feel like I should just give up. Ill do almost anything for an iTunes gift card!!!
I am motivated by my boyfriend and my desire to live a healthier lifestyle.
Shannon P. – Riverdale, GA
I am motivated by my family and my sense of self worth. For years my weight has ballooned up and down. I have tried every fad diet know to man and always tried to get a “quick fix”. In January of 2014, I decided to hunker down and focus on getting healthy. I knew that if I stopped fixating on the scale and just focused on exercising and eating healthy, the weight would come off on its own. As of today, March 14, 2014, I have lost 25 pounds. There have been no fad diets and no obsessing about the scale. I exercise 6 days a week and use Nexercise to motivate me. Nexercise keeps me accountable and I owe a large portion of my success to Nexercise. Everyone who wants to succeed in their goals should use Nexercise.
Shannon S. – Parsonsfield, ME
I am motivated by: The knowledge that I am making myself a better person. The work I am putting into myself to be the best version of myself body, mind, and spirit. The confidence I have found in gaining this perspective, understanding, and hitting new accomplishments. I am motivated by my children who I never want to suffer from poor self esteem due to childhood obesity. I hope they learn healthy habits that become routine rather then obsessive. And lastly, I am motivated by all those that have dared to call me an inspiration! Boy, I don’t want to let them down!!!!
Leigh D. – Lebanon, TN
I’m motivated by: not fitting in my clothes and wanting to.
Stephanie T. – Naples, FL

Stephen F. – Kennesaw, GA
I am motivated by the fact that my wedding is a year away. 20lbs down 80 to go.
Tyler J. – Vestaburg, MI
I am motivated by my brother, girlfriend, and uncle. All of them push me to better myself not only as a person but as an athlete. Whether it be on or off the field, their expectations of me are always high. While exercising one of them is always there pushing and helping me achieve goals I would never be able to reach by myself. All three of them bring something different to the table each time. My brother convinces, pushes, and motivates me to exceed my goals and boundaries. My girlfriend is more protective and makes sure I use proper form, so I do not hurt myself. My uncle advises me on apps I can use to track myself, supplements I should take, and different exercises I should try. They have helped me stick with my training and I hope they continue to be my motivation.
Will E. – Anna, TX
I am motivated by my desire to be there for my fiancé and to see my nephews grow up. I’m done being the fat guy that can’t do things with family.
