“What motivates me to bring my A game every single day is knowing that how I got here in the first place was through being a member,” explains Rob. “It empowered me and changed my life for the better.

Meet Shanie Rusth of UFC GYM.

“My escape is fitness and getting a really good workout in,” Shanie tells us. “What makes me unique in terms of my delivery is that I have a background in mixed martial arts. In my workouts I like to combine boxing with different bodyweight exercises.

“Every day you have voices in your head telling you that you can’t do something, or that it’s too hard. To be able to overcome that and prove yourself wrong to go above and beyond your limits of anything you every dreamed of doing, that’s what escaping my limits is.”
