A brief introduction:
My name is Jean Nardi. I have been with starr.fit since January 2023. I decided to stop in with my best friend and get more information after seeing members working out, outside. I knew I needed more from a gym then my previous one provided and starr.fit was it.
My journey: My journey started as weight loss since I was but transformed into so much more since joining. I no longer focus on the scale. I'm focused on my progress , eating habits, getting stronger and just being a better version of myself then I was before.
The Starr.Fit experience: My experience here has been amazing . Everyone was very welcoming and willing to help. The previous gym I was at was basically check in and good luck on your own. Here the coaches make sure to help you 100% of the way. The classes are always so much fun, and you look forward to coming back again. Words of encouragement: Don't be afraid to walk in the doors and get more information. You will find a very welcoming gym family. Everyone will help you in your journey .
A brief introduction:
Hello there! I'm Nicole Peters-Calderon, and my fitness journey has been nothing short of transformative. It all began back in 2018 when I discovered the world of functional fitness. The challenge and exhilaration of the workouts instantly captivated me, and I knew I had found something special. However, it wasn't until 2020, when I joined Starr.Fit, that my journey truly took off. I chose Starr.Fit because I was seeking more than just a gym; I was searching for a community that could elevate my fitness journey to the next level. Starr.Fit not only embraced my passion for function fitness and my competitive nature but also offered a comprehensive approach to health and wellness. Their focus on personalized nutrition and holistic well-being appealed to me immensely. I had specific goals for CrossFit, but I also wanted to improve my overall health and lifestyle. At Starr.Fit, I found the perfect blend of expert guidance, supportive community, and personalized attention. Join me as I share my story of growth, perseverance, and achieving my goals at Starr.Fit.
Your journey: In the midst of a challenging period in my life marked by a difficult divorce and unhealthy habits, I found myself at a low point. Struggling with weight gain, fatigue, and emotional distress, my relationship with food had turned into a coping mechanism. Feeling lost, I made a small but pivotal decision to join an unconventional gym, diving headfirst into the world of CrossFit without any prior knowledge. The beauty of CrossFit was its simplicity: just show up. This small step became a monumental turning point, transforming my life in ways I couldn't have imagined. Crossfit quickly became my sanctuary, a place where I didn't need a detailed plan or equipment expertise. Just being consistent became the key, and soon, my outlook shifted. Exercise became a passion, not a chore. Fast forward to 2020, I decided to take my fitness journey a step further by joining Starr.Fit. This decision opened doors to a wealth of knowledge and support. At Starr.Fit, I not only honed my athletic abilities, achieving personal records and mastering complex movements, but I also gained invaluable insights into nutrition. Learning how to fuel my body for optimal performance, both in the gym and in my daily life, became a game-changer.
The Starr.Fit experience:
More than just a gym, Starr.Fit became a community where I found friendship, support, and encouragement. Together, we celebrated victories and lifted each other up during challenges. My relationship with food transformed, paving the way for a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. The journey was not just physical; it was a holistic transformation that reshaped my mindset, my habits, and my happiness. Thanks to that one decision to step into the unknown world of functional fitness and later, to join Starr.Fit, I discovered a better version of myself—one filled with energy, confidence, and a newfound love for life.
Words of encouragement: Show up, and show up often Everyone started at the beginning just like you We are all in this together, and it is not me vs. you is me vs. me and you vs. you. Do 1% better than you did the day before and you will have success in achieving your goals. Regret is hard | Discipline is hard - Choose your hard Obesity is hard | Being Fit is hard - Choose your hard
Meet Jeremy Whitley
I'm Jeremy Whitley, and I've proudly called Starr.Fit home for the past four incredible years.
Fitness Journey: My fitness adventure started six years ago in a local gym, but it truly transformed when I joined Starr.Fit two years later. What drew me in was the emphasis on stretching, a focus on nutrition, and an overall wellness approach—more than just exercise. Beyond the fantastic workouts, it was the community and family atmosphere that sealed the deal for me. The supportive environment, not just from the staff but also from fellow members, was a game-changer.
My Achievements: My initial goal was to dip below 200 lbs and reclaim the freedom to enjoy life without reservations. Fast forward—I shed an impressive 75 lbs, overcoming constant fatigue. Starr.Fit empowered me to move better, intensify my workouts, and handle more significant loads. The guy who couldn't run a mile a few years back ran a half marathon last year. A personal highlight? Becoming an ambassador for the fitness apparel brand "Ten Thousand."
The Starr.Fit experience: Starr.Fit isn't just a gym; it's a family. We're not only working out together but taking on challenges like the Keys 100—where six members run the whole 100-mile stretch of the Keys. Lifelong friendships have blossomed here. The coaches and programming played a crucial role in my success. The personalized approach, focusing on mobility, has transformed the way I move. The challenging and beneficial programming keeps me coming back for more.
Words of encouragement: To anyone on the fence—It's never too late to embark on your fitness, nutrition, and wellness journey. Stay active, stay committed, and watch the transformative magic happen!
Meet The Hawkins
StarrFit… I don’t think I will have the right words and space on a page to explain what StarrFit means to my family. To stay Starr.Fit was life changing for our family is an understatement. We went from a family that did not workout together. From two very active boys and two mildly active girls to a family that prioritizes a healthy lifestyle and fitness. My husband had been a member of Starr.Fit for a few years and had begged me to join him. I always refused because I was intimidated and anxious. I had never touched a barbell in my life and only worked out sporadically and with things like Zumba, jogging on my own, or jumping around the gym equipment aimlessly in a globo gym. When he finally got my feet in the door I never looked back. I think I’m there more than him now! This form of fitness has changed me physically, mentally, and emotionally. Coming into Starr.Fit I had what I would self-label a mediocre self confidence and drive to exercise. Today, I am amazed by all the things physically that I can do that I thought I never could and that has spilled out in all areas of my life. I challenge myself more at work to achieve things I didn’t think possible before. I have found my own value in all areas of my life, and I would attribute mainly to my husband, kids, and gym family. I am excited to see the improvements I have made on the whiteboard when we do repeat workouts. I encourage others that never thought they could do this type of fitness to give it a shot. I might just be the stereotypical obsessive gym member today. It is a part of my identity.
Meet The Hawkins
The StarrFit community challenges each other and supports each other along both a fitness journey and life’s journey. I have made some of the very best friends I have ever had at StarrFit. Women supporting women is HUGE and the StarrFit community embodies that! My family has supported friends from the gym in competitions and family events, and we’ve felt the support ourselves as well! The community has been there for both of my kids as they have grown. The support shown for my daughter in weightlifting has been unmeasurable. Members have shown up to her matches and contributed monetarily to her weightlifting adventures. Various members have come to my son’s football and baseball games. He participated in the Summer at StarrFit program and made huge gains in his physical and nutritional health. ALL because of coach and member support and encouragement! Over the last four years I will tell you I have I lost ZERO weight. Today I weigh the same thing I weighed when I started…BUT I will tell you I am three sizes smaller and most importantly more confident and comfortable in my own skin. When I started StarrFit I could NOT do one push up or pull up…now, I have participated in the Murph workout for the last three years…That’s A LOT of push ups and pull ups! My physical, emotional, and mental well being has done a complete 180-degree shift since beginning StarrFit in 2019. Functional fitness is my favorite type of workout regime and Starr.Fit is my happy place to get it done!
