Relentless Family Spotlight – Keith Weiland

relentless strength training personal training bangor maineThe hard part about having such a loyal and long-lasting gym family is that eventually life changes and people move.  So sometimes you lose great members because of a job change, relocation, etc.

Unfortunately, that recently happened with Keith.  He joined up with us several months ago and immediately brought a fire and personality to the gym like no other.  I’ve often said that the best part about Relentless is the soul of the community, and nobody latched right on to that like Keith.

We’re sorry to see him go, but wish him well on his new ventures!

Name:
Keith Wieland

How would you describe your situation before joining, and what did you want to change?
Getting older and realizing I was deconditioned. Desire to feel better, move better and improve my psyche.

What were you most apprehensive about?
My apprehension was mostly fear of failure.

What is one of the first things you noticed after starting?
That the staff were all very helpful and engaged even during the busiest times. Friendly banter was a great motivator for me personally. The “ribbing” was essential to my progression, Isaac, Rob and Patrick are masters of this art form.

My motivation to stay fit has changed for life I believe. When I reflect on where I was when I started compared to now it’s surreal. The few days before I left town I actually had the gumption to challenge the 405 DL club. Though I didn’t get there I was glad to have even considered the challenge.

What would you say to anyone who was thinking of joining?
Just get after it and join Relentless!! You won’t regret it. I’ve been going since December and wish Relentless could relocate with me. I appreciate the men and women of Relentless and the men and women that put the effort in every day. I’m grateful for my time with Isaac and the crew! Thanks for crossing paths with me. Peace.

10 Steps To a Lean, Fit Body – Part 1

relentless strength training bangor gym fitnessI’m going to break down building a strong, healthy body that has both “show” and “go” in ten simple steps..

Why would I do that? Because I’m tired of all of the conflicting, confusing stuff out there in the fitness world.

The truth of the matter is that if you want to build a lean, strong body that performs and looks the part it’s way too easy to get lost in the sea of information out there. Turn on the TV and you’ve got workout infomercials hitting you in the face. Click on the radio and you get blasted by ads hawking some stupid wrap. Heck, a single click of a mouse will see you be buried under a deluge of information. There’s basically no end to it. Quite frankly, it’s frustrating at best and maddening enough to throw your hands up at worst.

At Relentless we’re well known for being “BS Killers”. Sometimes that means that we’re a little blunt, but so be it. My clients hire my coaches and myself to cut through all the noise, kill the mumbo-jumbo, and get them great results without the stress and goose chases of having to hunt down and then figure out how to apply all that information.

So, in light of that goal, let’s cut to the chase. Continue reading
