Kelly’s yoga class is better than physical therapy.
I love MorGainz Fitness! The staff are so welcoming and the gym is so clean!
"Amazing owners that are dedicated to having a clean, well equipped and full functioning gym."
"Has the dual atmosphere of typical "pick things up, put things down gym" along with a friendly, educated staff of instructors, trainers and owners. Wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"It's a great, clean, family oriented gym! I've been a member since 2013 and wouldn't even think of going to a different gym!"
"We've had an awesome several years here! The staff are always friendly and accommodating, and the availability of equipment is comprehensive. 24/7 access is a huge plus as I'm a bedtime lifter. Would highly recommend."
"This place is the best. Great equipment, fantastic classes, the best staff and owners. You have to try it! There are "no excuses!"
In January 2018 I set out to lose 40 pds by my 40th Birthday. Saturday 6/16 marks the big 4-0…the scale says that I lost 32 pds….just shy of my 40 pd mark. I am not at all upset, actually I am overjoyed as I can continue my journey to strength and health knowing that each day is a better version of who I was the day before. I did not walk this road alone and I have to give credit to Lori Marek, who pushed me off my fat ass, Dave Morgan, who has guided me through this world of fitness and health, showing me that physical limits are meant to be shattered and having the patience to help me help myself and last but most certainly not least Marilyn Alberter and Dennis (mom and dad/Grammy and Pappy)….without your help none of this would be possible! From the very bottom of my heart, I THANK YOU ALL!And finally, to the only hearts that beat with to my rhythm….Josh, Grady and Ronan! You are my reasons! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Everyone has a their own reason for starting a healthy lifestyle. This is my story. Within Six years I had two back surgeries and a hysterectomy. I was eating unhealthy foods, taking medicine for anxiety (which developed after my surgeries), I wasn’t exercising at all – I had no energy. I was tired all the time and started to lack self-confidence. Overall I had little to no motivation. My new lifestyle journey started in February 2018 when I had to buy an evening gown for a formal event. Looking in the mirror I hated myself. I decided to join West Hills Fitness, but did not know how to exercise properly. In March 2018, I hired their personal trainer, Dave Morgan, and also began to incorporate some wellness supplement products into my daily routine. In the first month I lost 6 inches! Dave not only had me performing weight lifting techniques I never thought possible, he also helped me to develop better nutritional habits to help maximize my results. Not long after, I began to have more energy and was no longer dependent on my anxiety medication. To date, I have lost total of 28 inches and 24 pounds AND have muscle definition! I love how just by exercising and eating well my mood has improved and has made me a more positive person. This is a lifestyle, not a quick fix to lose weight. You have to have a mindset and thanks to the love and support I have received from West Hills Fitness I was able to turn my goals into reality!
I reached a point in my life where my “at home workouts” were not helping me achieve the level of physique I was looking for. After spending the last few years dedicated to my children, I knew it was time for a lifestyle change in order to take care of myself. Joining a gym seemed rather intimidating to me. I did not want to get in the way of the gym members who had their usual routines and lifting weights was not something I was familiar with. I reached out to Kelly and she immediately go me started. She introduced me to a new type of fitness routine, not only through exercise, but nutrition as well. Her patience, guidance and encouragement allowed me to achieve my goals. After several months following her 90 day program, not only has my physical appearance been transformed, but I feel so much better mentally and emotionally. I want to thank Kelly to be flexible around my daily schedule and for her encouragement.
As an ex-professional fire fighter, I used to keep myself in shape for such a physically demanding job. As I changed careers, I let myself go, got lazy, and just lost interest in staying in shape. I became a couch potato which led to obesity. West Hills Fitness opened at the end of 2016 and Dave & Kelly Morgan walked into my life. Kelly took command of my nutrition, working my macros out to perfection. Dave took me under his wing in the weight room and made sure I was getting the best workout plan that would transform me into a healthy lean 64 year old. It’s been a very hard 12 week transformation and Dave & Kelly have been with me every step of the way. I have lost almost 28 pounds of fat and gained 2.5 pounds of lean mass. I’ve lost 4 inches around my waist so far. I have maintained my resting metabolic rate. I am looking forward to the next 12 weeks, and the next and the next. This is a lifestyle!
I always though I lived somewhat of a healthy lifestyle, but never got the results I wanted. I was constantly doing cardio with the occasional weight training session. My diet was always off no matter what I ate, very frustrating. So I decided to join MorGainz Fitness where I met with Kelly and chose to start her 90 day program. She set me up with customized weight training routine and a nutrition plan to match my body. I started to see a difference within the first month. I had more energy, my clothes were fitting better and overall I was feeling great. In 90 days, I lost almost 8 inches and 10 pounds of fat! I love the program and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to be healthier and feel more confident! Thanks again Kelly for all your help and support!
After being retired and going to the gym every day without seeing results, I was getting very frustrated. I am 71 years old and have back problems. I spoke with Kelly and she got me started on her 90 day program. She individualized the program to me. I had to track my food intake and my exercises. In 90 days, I was smaller and stronger and very happy with my results. I feel very good about myself and will continue to follow this very sustainable program as long as I possibly can!
I actually started the 90 day program with Kelly on a whim after looking for local gyms and wanting to see a change in my body and overall fitness. The results far exceeded my expectations!!! She created a logical,consistent, sustainable and realistic plan for the goals I wanted. She thoroughly explained all of the exercises in each of the workouts, the method to the madness, the extreme importance of correct nutrition, and most importantly, put up with my many questions! I put on 8 pounds of muscle in 90 days! If you're looking for a change in your physique...this is the way!!!
"I was disgusted with my lack of motivation and energy. Nothing fit and at 151 I had enough. I joined MorGainz Fitness and started on Kelly's 90 day program. I immediately began to feel better. At age 47, it was way easier, and not nearly as time consuming than I thought it would be. Kelly and Dave were both available with tips, support, help and encouragement whenever I needed. They really helped me stay accountable. If I can do this, anyone can! The program can work for ANYONE's schedule! It took me 4 months to complete the program, but I'm down 27 pounds and 16 inches and couldn't be happier!"
“Almost 2 years ago, I was overweight, uncomfortable with how I looked and felt, and wasn’t eating healthy. I’d tell myself I’m going to the gym tomorrow. Many tomorrows came and went until I finally decided enough is enough. Time for action. I was intimidated at the thought of going back to the gym since I was so out of shape and self-conscious. I started with group classes at MorGainz Fitness Richland and it was NOT easy. I’d have to stop several times and modify some of the moves, but I was there and that’s what mattered. Everyone was super supportive and encouraging. I also made changes to my eating. I didn’t want to jump on a fad diet that wasn’t sustainable. So, I started tracking my calories and I stopped drinking soda altogether. I began to see results with a healthy 1-2 pound loss per week. About a year into this routine, I was talking to Kelly about the necessity and many benefits of weight training. I had always wanted to incorporate that into my fitness journey, but I didn’t know what to do or how to start. She suggested training with her husband, Dave. What a huge difference maker! He pushes me without sacrificing form, which is exactly what I need. He keeps the workouts challenging, but achievable. He is very professional and an expert at what he does. I have noticed tremendous differences in the way I look since I started lifting. In fact, this is the best I’ve ever felt! I look forward to each session and get stronger every time. Looking back at my before picture, I NEVER thought I’d be where I am now. Sure, there are days I don’t feel like going to the gym, or I make a bad food choice, but that’s OK! Life is short and I’m human and just get back on track. I have made fitness part of my daily routine because I feel better mentally and physically. Kelly and Dave are incredible people. They really care about their clients. You will not find that at a commercialized facility. Plus, I feel great knowing that I’m supporting a local small business. If you are in a situation and you know you need a change, call Kelly or Dave. I know it seems overwhelming because I once was there. You owe it to yourself to make a positive change. You’re the only one who can make it happen, so what are you waiting for?“
“I started this journey with Kelly back in April when I lost all hope in my body and the gym and even though it was a long (and sometimes frustrating) journey it was totally worth every moment! Plus, it isn’t over just because I graduated the program with her, I plan to keep pushing to get my body to the healthiest it can be. She gave me the drive and confidence I needed to get myself into the gym and to stay there. While I’m not seeing a lot of big change in my body, I know for a fact that I am so much stronger from where I started and will only continue to get stronger! And Kelly not only gave me the tools to get there, but also the confidence in where I’m at now, that I love my body in all its short stalky strength and will just keep blossoming into that beauty and self-love the longer I use the knowledge and tools she gave me. I know it’ll be a loooong journey to get to my goal strength and body, but I can see it getting closer, and now, thanks to Kelly, I have the tools to get there & a little more patience with the process!”
"I used to be that all or nothing type of girl with diet/exercise. I would go hard on a new diet or new workout program and give up when I didn't see the results I wanted after a few weeks. I would do cardio at the gym forever, it seemed like, and wouldn't see results. The vicious cycle of losing a little and gaining it back has been going on for years in my life. Then one day I was reading about Kelly's 90 day program at my gym (MorGainz Fitness West Hills) and thought I would give it a shot. I was getting married in a few months, and I had to do something to feel confident on my big day! I met with Kelly and we went over the program and exercises. She MEASURED me, not WEIGHED me. Before I met Kelly, I was obsessed with the scale. I would weigh myself daily, sometimes twice...it was taking over my mind!!! Kelly introduced me to strength training, which I as always afraid of. I thought cardio was the way to go, but I was SOOO wrong! I got over my fear of the weight room and walked in there like a BOSS and got it done, and only 3 days a week!!! Kelly has taught me that it takes time and results do not come overnight! After only a few short weeks on her program, I started feeling good and STRONG. I no longer worried about the scale or how much weight I lost. My mind was now geared on how I felt and how my clothes were starting to fit. Kelly measured me every month and I was smaller each time in different areas! This program is not a diet...it's a lifestyle and it fits right into my busy schedule! Anyone can do it! Now that I have the basics and the habits down, I will continue challenging myself to keep getting stronger! This WILL be a part of my lifestyle! But, most importantly, I feel more confident in my wedding dress that I did a couple of months ago. So thank you so much Kelly for teaching me the ways....YOU ROCK!!!
"There was a time when fitness was not a priority in my life. I had lost a lot of weight post pregnancy just by changing my eating habits, but as I approached 40, it wasn't as easy to keep the weight off. I joined MorGainz Fitness about 5 years ago with the goal of just using the cardio machines to "get in shape." I gradually stepped out of my comfort zone, taking various classes, and was feeling great about my progress. I changed jobs in this last year; my schedule changed, and I found myself spending less time in the gym, and old habits starting to creep in. I needed something to motivate me, and hold me accountable, so I decided to try Kelly's 90 day program. I've quickly gotten back on track with nutrition, and I've been making it to the gym 3-5 times per week. It's still a work in progress for me, but I've definitely become stronger in the last 3 months, and I look forward to continuing this journey. Thanks Kelly for all the help!"
"I have tried about every diet in the books! I would lose weight fast and then gain it back plus more! When West Hills Fitness (now MorGainz Fitness) opened in Westmont, I decided to give it a try. I learned a lot from great people, and awesome trainers and owners! I year and a half later, I have stayed committed and now I'm getting healthy the right way! Everyone always asked me how are you doing it...I tell them I exercise 4-5 times per week and eat healthier. It's not something that happens overnight, you have to make a life change!!!
"The Ignite 90 program helped me lose the last 10 pounds of a significant weight loss. Kelly taught me the skills needed to build muscles. She helped me build the confidence needed to work out with weights without spending a lot of time in the gym."
"I have been coming to the Morgan's gyms for years. Before Kelly's Ignite 90 program, I didn't have the courage to go out on the floor to work with weight lifting. Now, with her expert guidance and targeted approach in the Ignite 90 program. I am beyond inspired. I love the way I look & feel. I've gone down a couple of pants sizes and I love the workouts. I highly recommend her program & I talk about it to people all the time."
"I loved the Ignite 90 Program with Kelly! I can't believe the difference, especially since I was SO RESISTANT to weight training. Now, I'm a believer. I have improved body posture, more confidence, I sleep better, my digestion has improved-just to mention a few things. Just do it!!!"
"Over the past several years, I've wanted to join a gym and get serious about working out, but I always ended up throwing money away because I gave up due to frustration. I didn't know if what I was doing was going to help me reach mu ultimate goal of weight loss. I would be thereon my own and had no support to help me on the way. I was intimidated by all of the machines because I didn't know how to use them and what proper form was so I didn't get hurt. I was also in the mindset that I needed a "workout buddy" to hold me accountable, but I quickly changed that and started thinking I needed to hold ME accountable. A really close friend of mine told me to check out MorGainz Fitness and so I did. I got online, checked out their website, and came across Kelly's Ignite 90 Program. I called the gym immediately and set up a meeting with Dave & Kelly. I knew from speaking with them, that this is where I needed to be. They were already so informational and supportive and I wasn't even a member yet! This was at the end of July 2019. Leaving that meeting with them, I decided it's time to make a change. On August 1, I started Kelly's program and have been in the gym every other day since then. I was very nervous, still very intimidated, BUT after my first workout with Kelly, I knew I could do this! I became confident in myself and walked through that door with my head held high knowing I was going to kill my workout! I always thought that working out was the hard part, but it's not! It's actually the easy part. It's getting the nutrition down that's hard! Figuring out macros and counting calories is the hard part and I'm STILL trying to get that part down. Don't get me wrong, there are days that I struggle with wanting to go to the gym and I just want to skip, but I get myself there and get through the workout and feel so great afterwards. I'm sleeping better, have better posture, and have a much better attitude since completing this program. My clothes are fitting differently and I've lost a total of 9.5 inches! Seriously, if I can do this, anyone can! You just got to want it for yourself and stay committed!"
"For a while I had been feeling like crap and knew I needed to change, but I had to idea where to start. I really struggled with holding myself accountable and I was disgusted. I didn't think the gym was for me because I had no idea what to do or how to properly use any equipment and I was terrified of exercising in front of people. I had met Kelly several months ago at my work's wellness day and decided to check out their website. I came across the Ignite 90 Program and thought "This is exactly what I need." When I first met with Kelly, she asked what my goals and expectations were for the program and I told her that I just wanted to get healthier. To me, that meant being able to walk up the steps without getting out of breath and to just feel better in general. I almost didn't make it through my first workout session with Kelly, but she believed in me and supported me and I struggled my way through it. It's a miracle that I even went back after that because it was so hard for me, but I did. Somehow I managed to keep going back, and now I can't imagine not going to the gym. I truly love it and am so thankful for Kelly giving me the push I needed to get started and to stay committed. I still struggle with the nutrition part, but I understand now that it's not all or nothing. It's a process and it takes work everyday. Just because you don't eat as well as you should one day doesn't mean it's ruined. Just start over the next day! On paper, I have only lost a few inches so far, but my clothes are looser and I've even gone down a size. I seriously can't thank Kelly enough for helping me change my life."
Hi..my name is Allison and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I graduated from Kelly’s Ignite 90 Program! I’ve been in and out of the gym for about 6 years, being most committed over the past year. As an athlete, I’m always interested in staying “in shape,” but I never truly knew what it would take to get there. I just tried different workouts and hoped for the best. After seeing Kelly workout at the gym and admiring her motivation for fitness I thought...she can help me push to that next level I wa looking for. My goal was NOT to lose weight...I wanted muscles and STRENGTH!!! This program got me just that! (With the added bonus of inches and pounds lost that I didn’t really expect!). My volleyball game has significantly improved, not only in power, but in endurance. That shocked me! What I loved most about this program is....it is not rigid! It was flexible to my busy schedule and I had zero planning to do. I got myself to the gym every other day and the results came! For anyone questioning if this is the program for you, I’d say regardless of athletic ability, shape or strength....a resounding YES!!! It jumpstarted me to engage in a whole new level in my fitness journey, I’m more confident in the gym and have never felt better about my body!!!
Going into this program I was about 4 months postpartum and had made decent enough progress on my own, but was stuck for lack of a better word. So I decided to get tier 1 because I already have decent enough experience in the gym to take the instructions given and get it done. I didn’t really have a specific goal in mind as far as my weight goes or anything like that, I actually have no idea what I weigh. I essentially just wanted a challenge and to change my general body composition. I’ve struggled with anorexia since I was young, and Kelly was absolutely fantastic at helping to remind me of how food is fuel for my body, and the number on the scale means absolutely nothing in terms of my progress. Though it is and will always be a struggle, this program has showed me that my body has strength that I never knew was there. And that it doesn’t deserve to be starved or deprived, but rather fueled and loved. I will say without a doubt the most important thing I have gained from this program is the strength to make my day to day life easier when taking care of my mother. Before this, I couldn’t even get her up or down a ramp in her wheelchair and now I’m doing it with ease multiple times a day. Looking good is cool and all, but feeling stronger and being able to do the things I used to struggle with means the absolute world. And the knowledge I gained through this program will be with me and applied throughout the rest of my life.
“I have completed my 90 day ignite program with Kelly and I have felt stronger and more energy in my body. I had lower back surgery and have had issues with pain afterwards for years. I needed an exercise program that could strengthen my lower back to experience less pain and protect it from flare ups. Kelly has given me that and it helps tremendously. Thank you for that."
"Success- the accomplishment of an aim or purpose." "I have been active my whole life and have been an avid gym person since I was in college. I've joined gyms, worked with personal trainers and taken aerobic classes. Last November I felt depleted and unmotivated .....seasonal depression was setting in. I was working out with a trainer and I just didn't enjoy it anymore, so just like that, after 3 years, I quit. It felt so good to come home right after work and plop down on my couch every night instead of working out. Once summer came I knew it was time to "get back". Every week I was going to start and I just kept making excuses why I couldn't start that week. I knew that I needed to find something that was going to make me be held accountable and that's when I looked into Kelly's program. Success is different for all of us, for me it wasn't about losing inches per say, it was about getting stronger and more importantly, making going to the gym a habit again. It sucked at first. I was sore and angry at myself for letting so much time go by. But after the first 2 weeks, I was hooked and began looking forward to getting to the gym after work. Everytime I wanted to go easy or skip a rep/set, I could hear Kelly in my head saying "you are only cheating yourself"....lol. I am now back to loving my gym time and stronger than I was 90 days ago. My next goal is to really try to improve my nutrition. I am a work in progress. Shout out to Kelly for being my guide, my confidant and my friend.”

After being asked by many of my clients...”Have I always looked like this?”...the answer is a resounding NO! I have had many years of yo-yoing, fad diets, pills, an unhealthy relationship with food, a terrible self image, body dysmorphic disorder, periods of extreme exercise, periods of anorexia, consistently comparing myself to others and always wanting to be someone else. Also, a reason we wanted to create an inviting and welcoming environment to EVERYONE at all of our facilities. We KNOW how hard it is in the beginning ❤️ I was always bigger than my teeny tiny friends as a teenager. My bad behavior and toxic thinking started then. I thinned out when I was active duty AF, age 19, but quickly ballooned after I turned 21. Alcohol and frequent 2AM fast food runs will quickly add unwanted fat. I started running around age 24 (easy when you live in Sacramento) and I was on Fen-phen for 3 months. I dropped 25 pounds in 3 months and looked and felt terrible. Still thankful I didn’t suffer any long term damage from those drugs. I then started adding The Firm videos into my routine which was my first real encounter with weights as an adult. I was adding some muscle which of course was changing my shape in a way I really liked. Next comes marriage....and a baby boy in 1998. I gained 40 pounds with my son and it took me almost 2 full years to lose it. During that time I became addicted to the gym. Mostly weight lifting and spinning. And...I was in nursing school. Next comes baby #2 and a relocation back to PA. I only gained 16 pounds with her. I was in healthy habits, so the baby weight fell off. I am a stress NON-EATER, so over the years and challenges in my life, I’ve dipped below 150 pounds, which is an unhealthy weight for me. It truly wasn’t until we opened the gyms (Richland location in 2012) that I fully transformed my body into the lean machine I am today. It has taken me years to accept who I am, that I’ll never be like the tiny, skinny friends I wasted so much time envying in my life. I still strive to learn and teach and become the best version of myself...inside and out which is still a struggle sometimes. Even better, I have such a passion to help others, especially women. We are so hard on ourselves, and on each other, for no good reason. Life is hard enough without that poison. My normal routine is 3 total body lifting routines every other day with my amazing lifting partner of almost 5 years Priscilla Hoffman and kettlebell with the legendary Bill Maher on Saturdays. I literally spend approximately 4 hours a week in the gym working out...that’s it. I teach yoga twice per week which is such therapy some days! I meal prep on Sunday’s and I track my food intake. Can I also mention how therapeutic it is to feel strong???? Oh...and...I LOVE French fries and cake and a really good burger. I love pancakes and chips & salsa and alcohol too. Portions....and fitting things in your daily macros are KEY!!!!! YES....I eat carbs!!!!! Lots and lots of carbs!!!! I just turned 49, I’ve weighed between 147-161 for the last 24 years (minus 2 pregnancies). Now, I avoid the scale most of the time because it’s truly pointless. In my brain, I’ll NEVER be happy with the number it displays. I get my body composition and resting metabolic rate checked approximately every 6 months. (I can do much more often now since we have the technology to do so.) I am currently around 16.5% body fat and am stronger than I have ever been...with no signs of slowing down...also thankful this corona pandemic seems to be nearing its end. 2020 was such a challenging year for us and many other small business owners. I hope my story inspires, motivates and encourages everyone who takes the time to read it! No fake news here....genuine honesty from my heart and unfiltered pictures. I’m living proof that this lifestyle is achievable AND sustainable. I think we are all screaming for something REAL! My goal is to help as many people as possible...near and far! Life is far too short to not be happy ❤️ #fitover40 #yesyoucan
“My body has done a lot of changing Over the last 13 years... I’ve had 10 pregnancies and have been blessed with 5 children! I’ve stretched and shrunk a lot! I was a gym-goer once upon a time, but a bunch of babies later... I needed help! I started looking for a local gym and found MorGainz! I knew the Ignite 90 Program was exactly what I needed! I met Kelly, the first time, to go over the program and she assured me that I’d get great results if I ‘stick to the plan!’ So I did... there were bumps in the road (travel, sick kids, etc.) that delayed me, but I’d pick up where I left off and kept going! Here I am at the end of the program, down 10 pounds and 7.5 inches! I wanted to be ‘skinny,’ then I realized that STRONG is more fun! 💗 Thanks Kelly for lighting my fire for fitness again!” #transformationtuesday #yesyoucan
“I am a former coworker of Kelly and I follow her on Facebook. I was seeing these success stories for her programs and reached out to her. Only problem is I’m 4 hours away in Virginia. I was going to the gym and running 3-4 days per week. I gained 10 pounds back from a former weight loss program and just couldn’t take it off. So Kelly decided since I already go to the gym, we thought I could do her program long distance through the apps she uses and texting. Well, I started just before Thanksgiving. First month went great and I saw changes within a couple of weeks. Then Christmas and New Years hit on month 2. I didn’t lose or gain, but didn’t make much progress. It was hard to stay on track. That’s ok because this is life. Month 3 I got back on track and the results showed. I might not look much different in pictures, but I’ve lost inches off my waist and my clothes feel much better. It’s amazing to see the strength I have gained in the last 3 months. My husband and coworkers she the change. Best thing is using the app for my food intake...it shows me how I’m eating etc and helps me make better choices. Of course I’m human and I do cheat at least once a week😉. This program is amazing. Thanks Kelly!”
“I’ve really enjoyed the 90 Day Ignite program and I’m proud to say that my workouts are now a routine part of life and something that I look forward to. I’ve always been active, but the weight lifting has really been transformational. I notice a big difference in how I look and more importantly, how I feel. And....I used to struggle with back pain which is now GONE!!!! Recently I was working out and I thought the weight seemed too light, I must have grabbed the wrong dumbbell, but then I realized it was the heavier dumbbell and I’ve just gained strength. Kelly has been a great motivator and I enjoy the other people I've gotten to know while at the gym. I’m looking forward to warmer weather and getting outside to walk but I won’t be giving up my gym time, too important and too much progress has been made.” #transformationtuesday #ignite90 #yesyoucan
“I am 58 years old and have never followed any kind of workout program. I was tired all time and putting on a lot of weight. I heard about the Ignite 90 program and decided to give it a try. I just finished my 90 days and feel great and I am really starting to see a big difference. I have slipped up a few times with the eating but I have stuck with it. Kelly always says it is a process and she is right. Only one hour every other day at the gym and you feel great after a good workout. Kelly has a great program and is an excellent coach. It has only been 90 days but this is going to be a life long change and I am excited to continue.” #transformationtuesday #ignite90
From Payton...“I’ve watched this woman go from her death bed, and saying my goodbyes to her, to going out and training her body to learn how to do everything we take for granted everyday. I would say through all of this, you can never count on tomoro, so take care of your health today. The stroke literally happened over night and took damn near everything from her and changed all of our lives forever. But even in awful circumstances, a strong family and community will always help heal. I can’t thank MorGainz Fitness enough for the opportunity to work with Dave and Cindy. All of their hard work and patience is a godsend. I just want to say how thankful I am for this awesome facility. My mother is by far the strongest woman I have ever met and I can only hope to continue to help her recover. What’s your excuse?” From Rhonda...”I just want to be better.” #transformationtuesday
”So it begins...I needed to do something for myself, to boost my confidence and gain strength, those were my goals going into the program with Kelly. I was in desperate need to improve my health and mental well being. Working at the gym, I got to see many success stories of those who started their own journey and I thought it was my turn. I jumped into it with her guidance. I have tried some of the exercises years ago but I did not know what I was doing. With Kelly’s guidance I knew I was good to go and to have faith in myself....she is the initial spark for my confidence boost. At first I complained about the aches and pains but it was worth it. Over the length of the program I noticed subtle changes: clothes fit in a different way, changes in my appetite, and I had more energy during the day and I slept through the night.After graduating Kelly’s program I am happy to report the following: blood pressure is down (no need for medication that was being considered earlier this year), I have gained strength and confidence in myself with duties at the gym and my other job, and I am down TWO pants sizes. I will not lie, I did and still struggle with the eating and nutrition aspect but I am still figuring out this amazing journey to a healthier lifestyle. There is support out there and I found mine with Kelly’s program.”
“My 40th birthday was soon approaching and I was feeling the worst I’ve felt in a long time. I’ve become lazy and tired. I was losing myself. I’m not one who cares solely on how I look but man did I feel lousy. I lost all of my energy and was lacking the desire to do things. That’s when I decided I needed a change. I needed something positive! So, I signed up for the ignite 90 program with Kelly Morgan at MorGainz fitness. I had lost my confidence about going to the gym but Kelly helped me to become more comfortable again. The hard part was just getting my butt there. It’s not easy but the hard work pays off. Thank you Kelly for pushing me and helping me physically which has in turn affected my whole being.”
“Ignite 90 has been my life saver. I have always been one that has been obsessed with the number on the scale. I have gone through times of being very active with cardio workouts and hardly eating to get to a certain number on the scale, while also having times where I got burnt out and I just gave up with no workouts and eating fast food constantly. Both cycles I never really felt completely happy with myself. A little over a year ago I had my baby girl and I fell into the phase of not working out and eating anything and everything. About four months ago my family moved to Johnstown. With this move I decided I needed and wanted to make a change. I had no energy, felt moody most days, and just mentally and physically not in a place I wanted to be. After looking up gyms in the area I found MorGainz and started looking into everything they offered. Ignite 90 caught my eye. BEST decision I ever made was to join MorGainz and start this program with Kelly. Kelly is AMAZING!! She has taught me so much and helped me change my mindset for the better. I now understand the balance of a healthy diet and the benefits of weight lifting and boy do I LOVE lifting now! I am so full of energy, stronger both physically and mentally, and more confident. On top of all of that, I had an overall of an 11 inches lost! I am beyond thankful for Kelly and her program as I now have a lifestyle that has balance and a plan I can easily continue. Thank you Kelly for helping me find my happy place!”
“I’ve really enjoyed the 90 Day Ignite Program and I’m proud to say that my workouts now have a direction! I’ve always been an active person and decided to join MorGainz two years ago.I was a gym wanderer…I’d do some cardio, random machines, some weights…truly no direction and I wasn’t seeing any results. My fitness plan was stagnant and I didn’t like it.I had seen a 90 day Ignite Success Story on Facebook and thought this is exactly what I needed.I met with Kelly and she provided a thorough outline of workouts for each month. During all three months I was learning something new…using new machines, different ways of using weights….and pull ups too. Even when I thought, “Kelly has to know that I cannot do pull ups..I haven’t done a pull up since junior high!” Did I ever think at my age I could do pull ups? I didn’t think so, but Kelly did, and you know what? She was right! Pull ups are now one of my favorite exercises to do at the gym.Kelly also helped me learn the proper art of using weights, provided a nutrition regimen, and the power within myself to accomplish my goals. She provided support and assistance along my program and helped me find methods that aligned with my goals.Kelly is a great motivator and she finds your strengths even when you didn’t know you had them.I notice a difference in how I look and most importantly how I feel. I feel stronger, I feel more confident in the gym, and I now have a plan and direction when I walk through the door.Thanks Kelly!! For as you said to me recently….”Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.
“After having a stroke May 25, 2018, I knew it was time for a major lifestyle change. It took me a year and 9 months to finally convince myself to do so. As I was scrolling through Facebook one day, I stumbled across MorGainz Fitness Ignite 90 program. I read the testimonials, looked at all the before and after pictures and thought that maybe this is what I needed. So, in February 2020 I joined MorGainz Fitness Somerset and started Ignite 90. The first time meeting Kelly was a little intimidating (me at 4’10 and her at IDK.. seems like she is well over 6’ lol) However, it didn’t take long (5 minutes) and she made me feel so at ease. My goal going into this program was to lose inches, but gain strength! As I grow older, I find it harder and harder to maintain my strength and my overall weight. Kelly gave me all the tools to make this 90 day program work…workouts, food tips, apps..etc. I was doing great, then Covid hit, however, Kelly kept in touch and even offered at home workouts that helped keep my momentum going.I have now finished her program and I love how I look and feel. I have lost many inches/lbs and gained so much strength. I went into the gym wearing my son’s oversized t-shirts and now wear form fitting shirts!! Kelly kept me motivated and was always there if I had any questions. This has been a great experience and I will continue my new healthy lifestyle journey. Thanks to everyone at MorGainz Fitness!”
“I would like to send out a special thank you to Kelly Morgan. I have been an active member at MorGainz Fitness in Ebensburg now for the past 7 years. I would attend many of the classes the gym had to offer. I found every class to be challenging and enjoyable, but something was still missing in my workout routine. I decided to take the leap and give Kelly’s 90 Day ignite program a try. This was the best fitness decision I have ever made. Kelly gave me the tools/ knowledge I needed in my workout routine that would provide me with results. The workouts she designed for me every month produced results. My meal planning changed in a positive way. I have seen better results in the past 90 days then I have over the past 7 years. I feel amazing. I no longer go to the gym without a plan. My workouts have meaning and are producing the results that I never thought were possible. Kelly you have made a huge impact on my fitness mindset. It no longer matters what I weigh. What matters is how I look and feel. And.... thanks to Kelly I feel amazing. My fitness journey has been forever changed because of you! My 7 days a week at the gym are now 4 days and I am finally get the results I have wanted for years!
“I discovered Kelly’s Ignite 90 program shortly after I joined MorGainz Fitness. I’ve always prided myself on living a healthy and active life, but, as I’m sure most can attest, this past year was especially challenging so I was looking for something that would help re-ignite (no pun intended ) my workout routine. I came into the program looking to continue to build muscle and feel more comfortable in my own skin. I can happily say that after these past three months I feel stronger, healthier, happier, and more energized than I have in months! While I’m proud of my progress over the past 90 days, which includes a loss of 6 inches....what’s more important to me is how this program helped me create a positive lifestyle change. Now, going to the gym is a natural part of my daily routine, I LOVE lifting weights, and I’m consciously, consistently making healthier food choices. As Kelly says, now there is “nothing to do but keep going – forever!!”
”After having two children I wasn’t sure where to start back to the gym and what kind of program would help me achieve my goals. I came across Kelly’s ignite 90 program and thought it would be a great fit! She stressed the importance of weight training and helped me understand why that would burn more fat versus doing a cardio focused program. Kelly helped provide me with the tools I needed to get back into shape and find my love for the gym again. My goals quickly changed from weight loss to getting a new personal record in weight lifted for different exercises. I was skeptical about doing a program over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year but I am so glad I got ahead instead of more behind. 11 lbs down, 9 inches off, and a much happier healthier persona.”
“I had been regularly going to the gym for about five years, but I was stuck in a rut. I knew I needed to switch things up, but nothing I tried was working to help me tone/lose additional weight like I wanted. I finally got my head out of the sand and contacted Kelly. She is such a life-saver! She taught me that it is ok to do total-body workouts (I previously would just work certain regions each time) and to lift until I can't possibly lift anymore! The most important thing she has passed on is that I don't need to obsess about the number on the scale, because my ideal weight should be: "Strong AF". And it's working! I'm stronger, and I can definitely tell I've toned up and I’ve lost almost 8 inches!!! I'll be keeping up with everything Kelly has taught me and I am absolutely going to sign up for her bonus month of training in order to be the most fit I can be before donning a wedding dress in July!”
“I’m not foreign to having a fitness routine and eating healthy. I’ve done my share of home workouts and random classes, but my routine began to feel mundane. I was feeling dull and unsatisfied. I wasn’t challenging myself nor was I recognizing my full potential. I needed more, I wanted more! Rewind 90 days, I came across Kelly’s Ignite 90 program and thought.. this could be it.. the change and challenge I needed! Within a few days I was set to meet Kelly and start her program. During our meeting, she reviewed my workout regimen and discussed my nutrition. In the first 5 minutes Kelly opened my eyes to the changes I needed to “fuel my body”. I love food and thought I knew how to eat healthy.. turns out I didn’t!! I wasn’t feeding my body the nutrients it actually needed.I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t afraid of failing, but on day 1 Kelly turned my fear of failure into determination. Never giving up and completing this program was a personal accomplishment. Kelly’s program has given me the tools that will continue to be a part of my life. Thank you Kelly for creating this amazing program!”Are YOU ready? If not, what’s holding you back?
“I have worked out over the years but as I had my children it got harder to find the time to do so. I got tired of being “unhealthy and unfit”. I wanted to feel comfortable in my body again. I decided to join Morgan’s Fitness. As I was browsing their website I noticed Kelly’s Ignite 90 and thought what better to way to get back at it! I sat with Kelly, we went over my life style and what I wanted to achieve. She gave me a workout plan each month and a food tracker to track my MACROS/calories. I was always AMAZED each month where I would start and to where I would end each month, as far as the inches I have lost, but also at how much stronger I was! I have pushed myself more on this program than I ever have and plan to keep doing so! It’s a great feeling of being stronger, more fit and having your clothes feel good on you again! Thank you Kelly and MorGainz Fitness!”
"Seven months ago, I was diagnosed with Chron’s Disease in my small intestine with one of my symptoms being unexplained weight loss. Due to also having Gastroparesis in my stomach, my weight was already slowly declining over a span of 8 years. I have always been a tiny and thin woman, so the additional symptom of unexplained weight loss because of Chron’s resulted in me decreasing to 90 pounds. Three months ago, I reached out to MorGainz Fitness Richland and joined Kelly’s “Ignite 90” program with the goal of gaining back weight. Through the program, I learned better nutrition and gained knowledge on proper strength and muscle building exercises. Three months later, can proudly say that I have successfully gained back 8 pounds (and still going up!!). I am very grateful and blessed to have had Kelly as my trainer, guide, and cheerleader during this process. Her knowledge, expertise, and overall positive attitude has led me to feel and look the healthiest I have in years! I learned that I am stronger than I thought, both mentally and physically, allowing me to push limits I never even dreamed of. This program was such a blessing and I have no clue where I would be today without it! Thank you for everything, Kelly!!"
“Physical fitness was something that was always important to me, but over the last 4 years I had settled into a job that was primarily sedentary and very stressful. During this time, I put on a significant amount of weight and was extremely out of shape. I felt miserable, and was at a point where I could not walk up a flight of steps without becoming very short of breath. I hated the way I looked and I hated the way I felt. During that time I had tried various fad diets and fell into a yo-yo routine. Everything that I had tried was failing, I kept gaining weight, and I was at my wits end.I knew Kelly from our time working together as nurses. She is someone that I always trusted and respected. Over the last couple of years I had been reaching out to her, but never fully committed to starting a fitness routine, until earlier this year. I had reached a breaking point so I contacted her one more time. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how things would go. I was 70 pounds over weight and lacked confidence. I warned Kelly that she may have her hands full with me, but she was definitely up for the challenge. I started the ignite 90 program with Kelly and was sold from the first work out. Within the first two weeks I immediately started feeling so much better, and so much stronger both physically and mentally.Kelly is extremely committed to helping you achieve your goals and is always encouraging. She’s also very knowledgeable and will designed a fitness/nutrition routine specifically for you. All you need to do is listen to her, follow the plan, and I promise that it will work for you. When I started I could barely hold a plank for 10 seconds and now I’m doing push ups. I am amazed at how far I’ve come in such a short time. No words will ever be able to express my gratitude to Kelly for her patience, encouragement, and support. She truly brought me back to life.My advice for anybody who may be on the fence about starting Kelly’s program would be to make yourself a priority and do it. As Kelly says- you always have time for the things that put you first.”
“I decided to look into kellsmprifram after a friend of mine completed her program and I saw how successful she was. I have never been a gym person at all, never played sports, and had no clue how to lift weights. I had been a member of another gym for over a year and never saw any progress. I wandered around using random machines that I felt comfortable with without following a structured program.I was pretty nervous the first time I walked into MorGainz Fitness Richland and met with Kelly, but she immediately put me at ease as she explained the program and showed me the exercises. I told her my goal was to find a program that was easy to follow and give me results. Along with the exercises, the nutrition information she shared with me has really made a difference in my grocery lists and daily food choices. Kelly’s confidence in me being able to complete the 90 days with success along with her positive, encouraging attitude is exactly what I needed. 3 months ago, I never could’ve imagined that I would be a person who became a regular at the gym and not use any excuse in the book to skip it, as I used to! Thank you to Kelly for all of the reassurance, support and knowledge that you have shared from day 1 to today. You were right…I can do this!”
“I am not a big fan of social media and I am only doing this post out of respect for Kelly, MorGainz Fitness Ebensburg (Ebensburg, PA), and to say thank you.In neglecting myself I slowly began to notice that my belt sizes needed to be adjusted bigger and my stomach was getting in the way of me tying my shoes. Then came the day when I had enough and I decided to join a gym.I never lifted weights or belonged to a gym in my life. I tried to figure things out on my own without success. After seeing pictures of a friend of mine who successfully completed the Ignite 90 program and seeing her results, I contacted Kelly the next day.Throughout the program Kelly was very inspirational, supportive, and stayed in close contact with me throughout the entire program. Her demonstration of proper lifting technique and portion sizes for meals was extremely beneficial. I did exactly everything she said and stayed consistent with routines.Once I got comfortable with the eating and registering my food through the app the weight and body shape started changing quickly.Thank you Kelly and MorGainz Fitness.”I would like to add that we repeated his body composition at the end of the program. Not only did he lose over 11 1/2 inches, he had a 24.2 pound fat loss and a three-quarter pound muscle gain. His body fat decreased by almost 10%. Incredible results! #yesyoucan
“Before Kelly’s Ignite 90 program, I drifted between different workout programs and had no clue what I should be doing or what I should be eating. Kelly guided me through and not only told me what to do, but more importantly why to do it, so now that I’ve completed the program, I can coach myself and won’t go back to my old ways. Kelly’s program was a game changer and because of it, I’ve added inches to my arms & legs in just 3 months while maintaining a great weight!”
“I've always been big into the gym and having a routine but I was stuck with why my body wasn't changing.I joined MorGainz and read into Kelly’s 90 day program and said let's go I know what I'm doing, just need the program.I fell in love with watching myself gain muscle where I've always had a hard time in my arms… watching my triceps come in and my biceps has truly been an eye opening experience for me.Nutrition has always been a struggle from sporting events and on the go with 3 kids, but I noticed on days I logged and meal prepped I felt amazing vs the days I didn't ( still work in progress)I lost 8.5 inches all over. My repeat body composition analysis showed that I gained 3.5 pounds of lean muscle mass and I lost over 3% of body fat.You truly can achieve anything in life if you truly want it.. no excuses! Life is a roller coaster full of unexpected events, but how we deal with that is what makes us or breaks us.”
From Anna:“My story:I’m not a complete stranger to the gym, however after years of being a working mom, running kids everywhere and being in my 40’s, the weight slowly crept on. I decided in January I was headed back to the gym! I wasn’t but a few months in, until I realized I needed more than cardio, and I came upon Kelly’s ignite 90 weight lifting program and it was just the push I needed. Thank you Kelly!”You crushed it Anna Meyers! You achieved your goal of adding muscle and losing fat! In fact, you gained 5 pounds of lean mass and lost 7 pounds of fat!!!! Almost 8 inches lost!!! You look amazing and I’m so proud of you! Isn’t it so interesting that your body weight changed by less than 2 pounds…and this is exactly why I tell people to stay off the scale!!! Thanks for trusting me!
From Christina:"I had recently lost weight but something was missing... I had no energy and I definitely needed to tone up. I had a gym membership in the past, but mostly had no clue what I was doing and I gave up.I first heard about the ignite 90 program at work. The program sounded so exciting, I had to check it out. I was nervous at my first visit, but Kelly was so friendly and made me feel at ease with this new weight training program. She had so much enthusiasm it was contagious and I couldn't wait to get started. Kelly demonstrated my first months exercises and I felt, I CAN DO THIS! She made it look so easy.I had two goals in mind:1). My first goal was to be able to keep up with my man, Gary, on hiking trails while on vacation out West in September2). My second goal was to increase my muscle and strength of my stabilizer muscles to prevent re-injuries to my back ( 3 injuries since 2017.)She gave me a nutrition plan to follow. It was definitely an adjustment to my low carb diet, but I needed more carbs to fuel my body during my workouts.It was a slow start for me because of the fear of re-injury, but I worked hard and it paid off. Kelly would respond to my fear saying, "TRUST ME!" I hit the floor running and 3 months later I love my results. I met both of my goals!Thank you Kelly for all the encouragement, enthusiasm, and the knowledge of diet combined with weight training/exercise.”Can I also add that after her repeat body composition, Christina gained 1 pound of muscle and lost 2 pounds of fat. She was also 3.5 inches smaller overall. Congratulations on a job very well done!
“I am a breast cancer survivor going on almost 2 years, but it’s just recently that I started feeling like a survivor. I had a rough rebound after finishing all my cancer treatments and surgeries and just as I was cleared to get back to living, the pandemic shut down started. Most days I didn’t want to get off the couch and when I did I couldn’t wait to get back to it. In addition to being very sedentary, I did a lot of comfort eating and justifying about what I deserved because of what I had been through. I knew I needed to do something to overpower my excuses, to become healthier and gain back my life. That’s when my good friend told me about Ignite 90 and suggested I message Kelly.I did everything to try to convince Kelly to let me do the program outside the gym. I had never belonged to a gym and just thinking about going to the gym gave me anxiety. I had such a fear of being judged and being imperfect in a pool of perfection. However, my biggest concern about starting any workout was getting injured since I had been so inactive so I decided to dive all into Kelly’s program and joined MorGainz Fitness Richland and started Ignite 90!During my initial visit Kelly I wasn’t surprised, but was completely mortified that my body composition measurements showed I was over 40% body fat. I thought for sure I was never going to be successful when she told me I should only eat 1400 calories and only 39 grams of fat a day!!! The workout routine, however tough, did not seem as torturous as some of the home programs I had tried to work through in the past so I didn’t dread them. I began to view the gym as a retreat—a place where for 45 minutes or so I could focus only on me. No one was judging, everyone was friendly and lots have been really encouraging. I began to feel so alive, so strong and so happy to be alive and I am absolutely in love with feeling this way!!! I have found myself again. I have rediscovered my joys—there is so much I want to do now that I don’t have enough time in each day to get them done!None of my days are perfect-I eat chocolate and sometimes more than I should, but I am learning to find a better balance. I have discovered that my idea of trying to be perfect is ridiculous—no one’s perfect and no one should demand perfection. I keep reminding myself that if I have a bad day—it doesn’t mean I should give up and return to all my bad habits thinking I am bound to fail anyway. Now I just remind myself that I will just do better tomorrow. With Kelly’s help, I have learned to change my thinking—I am not on a diet, I am on a journey to live better. It doesn’t come easy, it’s a constant conversation I have with myself every day, but anything worth doing isn’t easy.As a survivor I feel inclined to share a Breast Cancer Awareness plea. Please take time to become breast aware. Talk to your doctor about your breast cancer risk. If you are over 40, call today and schedule your mammogram—I know it’s just one more appointment and one more thing to do but believe me, making time for a mammogram is much easier than making time for all the appointments you will need as a cancer patient. Early detection is the goal. When you are breast aware and know your risks, you are more likely of detecting cancer early. Early detection could save your life but it could also spare you from having to endure some of torturous cancer treatments. I was 42 when I was diagnosed—still considered young in cancer terms. I was 6 months over due for my mammogram. After mastectomy surgery my lymph nodes showed minimal traces of cancer cells resulting in the need for chemotherapy. I can’t help but think that if I would have gotten my mammogram on time(6 months earlier) before the cancer began to invade my lymph nodes, that maybe I could have avoided the need for chemotherapy—and never lost my hair, never developed a blood clot from my chemo IV, not had to fight the nausea, the depression, and been able to move past cancer sooner. Please learn from my mistakes!”
