What are the benefits of joining a community-based fitness gym?

First and foremost, Loft Fitness offers the best value for your money, compared to any other type of gym. The primary reason is that we are locally owned and operated, and the goal of the members of our community-based gym is to provide help, support, and encouragement for each other. You’ll find the environment more welcoming and less intimidating.

Further, you’re getting your workouts programmed and lead by a certified coach and expert on a daily basis. Rather than walking into this gym without a plan, we’ve already written one for you and will lead you through it with the group each day!

At the end of each workout, you’ll receive a unique report card that tracks your progress. We also take snapshots of your workout every day and store them in our system. This is nice because it allows you to compare your progression from week to week so that you know when you’re making gains, and when your body may require some recovery.

A community-based group fitness gym is also better for your health than being at home physically inactive. There are many studies that have shown that individuals who exercise with others and share their thoughts are less lonely and suffer from depression less which has a direct link to physical health.

When it comes to making your lifestyle shift, you’re going to be in a group of people that are on the exact same page as you. You’ll get accountability from other members are also Seattle locals (who also want and need to make progress!). It’s a fun, social atmosphere where everyone is striving for the same goals!

Finally, another benefit of joining a local community-based group fitness gym is that it will help you stay in shape for anything since you’re getting a variety of new workouts regularly and constantly bettering yourself!

Through our experience of working with thousands of Seattle locals at Loft Fitness over many years now, there are some other benefits too! You’ll find yourself going to the gym more often, you’ll feel better about yourself and your confidence will grow. This all typically leads to weight loss or a healthier lifestyle overall!

Feel free to contact us anytime with questions on how we can help you make a lifestyle shift! I hope this article was helpful in encouraging you to get involved with our group fitness classes.

Mallory Berger

Owner & Coach

Growing up a competitive swimmer, I discovered my passion for health and fitness at an early age. I began lifting weights and bodybuilding during college and then competing under the NPC in Figure and Bikini competitions in early 2010. While I enjoyed the training, the extreme restrictive diets, hours of endless cardio, and sole emphasis on aesthetics became emotionally and mentally draining.

Feeling lost with yo-yo diets and inconsistent results, I walked into my first Functional Fitness gym in 2014. I was hooked immediately. I remember thinking “OMG I WAS MADE FOR THIS!” It really was what I had been looking for in every aspect. The competition, the community, the training methodology; I loved it all. I was working in corporate fitness as a personal trainer, but it didn’t take long before I decided to pursue CrossFit full time as a coach and competitor. I dove in deep by learning as much as I could about the sport, movement, body mechanics, recovery, and fuelling my body through the proper nutrition.

CrossFit completely changed my outlook on fitness. It slowly taught me to appreciate my body for what it was capable of doing instead of what I thought it was supposed to look like. I learned how to work with my body and to accept myself for who and what I am and to my disbelief, the results I always wanted seemed to magically happen also!

My biggest pleasure now is helping other people achieve the same “ah-ha” moment that I had! No matter the goal, there is literally nothing I love more than helping someone learn what their body is capable of through proper nutrition and functional movement. The sky is the limit!

Bethany Pappas

Owner & Coach

There are only a few things I truly love in this world- my ginormous family (blood and chosen), eating & drinking delicious things, and all things Loft. I seriously think I have the best job in the world on every front. Every day, I get to be a part of running a small business that creates a powerful and dynamic platform for individual change. I get to get up in the morning and facilitate a team that helps people PLAY (read: workouts). Fun!! I am privileged to be able to help people have fun and get in shape for a job.

I grew up living in many places across the US – mostly in California and at times in a converted school bus.  I am the eldest of seven and will reliably give it to you straight when asked. I LOVE learning but passing on value by teaching or leading is even more fulfilling for me. Whether I’m seeking out the humans that are the best fit for our gym, training our staff or working directly with our current members – it’s my job to help us/you/them create habits and choices that trickle into the rest of their lives. Over 14 years into this functional fitness “stuff”, I am humbled daily by the opportunity to do what I do.

COACH

I started my CrossFit journey in 2017 at Crossfit Templum, and have gained many  friendships, business partners and relationships for life. Let’s not forget to mention that I have also gained muscles!

With dedication and hard work I lost about 50lbs. I am surrounded by great coaches and people that push hard for themselves and for others. In 2019, I made the decision to become a coach and lead like they do.

ONE DAY OR DAY ONE , YOU DECIDE.

A lifelong technologist, I discovered CrossFit when I realized I needed to step away from the computer and get in shape.  Little did I know the impact it would have on my life, both physically and mentally.  Now I love sharing in the journey with others, whether it’s coaching or throwing down in a WOD together.
