BOLT Fitness was built with one purpose: To help people age 40 and older lose weight, get stronger, and become the best versions of themselves through pain-free fitness and real-world nutrition.

"Looking at Mike when I walked up that driveway, I knew... This is it... this is the conversation that is going to change my life... And I was right!"

“In reality, weight loss was not my primary reason for joining (although that did happen) . I actually have a local doctor I should be thanking for some of the reason I joined.

Sadly he was right. So I would “get into shape” at BOLT, relieve stress, and if I lost weight it was a bonus. I didn’t want to make the weight loss a factor in my commitment.

I remember where I parked. I know where Mike was sitting when I walked up. I know exactly how I felt walking up the hill to the open garage door. I didn’t even step a foot into BOLT and it hit me. Looking at Mike when I stepped over that threshold, I knew, “this is it….this is the place…this is exactly what I need…this conversation is going to change my life”.

And it did.

Even though I have gotten stronger, improved my energy levels, and have lost over 40lbs…The hardest part is still that walk up the hill.

But I know once I get through the door, the coaches and the awesome people at BOLT will get me through the next 45 minutes and I’ll be better for it when the session is done.”

People Over 40 Who Want To Get In Shape Make One COLOSSAL Mistake…

What worked for you in the past will not work for you in the future.
 You won’t get away with, “not having to really work out” anymore…
 You can’t get away, with “I can eat whatever I want as long as I workout” anymore…
 The days of, “I’ll just workout for two hours every day and diet really hard for 6 weeks, lose 20lbs and fit into my dress” are over…
 Your life is different now. 
 Your body is different. Your hormone levels and metabolism are different. Your joint structures have changed over the years and are more likely to feel creaky and painful. 
 On top of that…you work so hard to take care of everyone else, that taking care of yourself becomes last priority. 
 Before you know it – “age” feels like it punched you right in the gut. You try to punch back with those old quick fixes that worked for you in your twenties and thirties…but “age” is blocking them left and right.
 You eventually start to think that this is just the way it’s going to be. You’re going to gain weight, live with joint pain, and feel sluggish for the next 50 years.
 And you know what…You’re right. You will. 
 If…You sit back and let it happen.
 It doesn’t have to be this way.
 Joe went from debilitating chronic back pain to finishing 4th in his age group at a 1-mile open-water swim.
 Linda went from 20lbs overweight with knee pain to finishing a 150 mile bike ride at 60 years old.
 Patty hasn’t been able to go on hikes with her family since the kids were in middle school (they are in college now), and now she leads the pack.
 Each of these three individuals, along with hundreds of other local adults, were built customized plans around their goals, schedules, and budgets to get them from where they were to where they are today. 
 They ALL achieved their success without:
  • Exercising more than 4 hours per week.
  • Doing unsafe, crazy heavy, or high-impact exercises.
  • Fad diets, restrictive food plans, or expensive supplements.
They all do:
  • Only perform exercises that feel good for them and don’t aggravate any old injuries.
  • Strength train at least 2x per week.
  • Prioritize non-processed foods 80% of the time while allowing themselves to enjoy the other 20%.
  • You can do it too. With an open mind, some extra effort, and a little bit of guidance…
You can change your life.
