Hello, my name is Ed Walton. I am married to my best friend Michelle and we have three great children, Emma, Megan, and Eddie. I work in the logistics field as a warehouse supervisor. I am a member of the U.S. Army Reserves with the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 2. My biggest struggle fitness wise prior to joining Fit Soldiers was sticking to an exercise regimen mostly due to getting bored with prior exercise plans. My wife Michelle saw an ad in a local advertisement about Fit Soldiers which offered some free sessions. She told me I should try it out and I had nothing to lose.
I found that Fit Soldiers was a fitness program that I could get into and enjoy. In the beginning, my two main reasons for working out were so I could eat what I wanted and stay relatively fit for my military service. Through the years, Dave and Joey have encouraged and motivated me through the various workouts.
Since joining, they have both tried to beat into my head that it is not just the workouts; nutrition also plays a major part in total physical fitness. I can be a bit stubborn and set in my ways but this past year I finally listened and signed up for the New Year New You Challenge. It was a struggle but I stuck with it and actually won the challenge! It was awesome to win but I also learned some great things about nutrition.
I look at physical fitness in a new way now. Do I still occasionally eat the not so good thing? Yes, absolutely but now I’m aware that it is about the total package to getting and staying fit. One moment of a bad choice is not the end of all things, get back on track and move forward. My advice for someone just joining Fit Soldiers is to have perseverance. It is tough when first starting out, but in the end, you will feel stronger and healthier.
Thank you Fit Soldiers!
You too can take your life back and thrive!

When I was around 13 years old, I was in a weight lifting unit in PE class. Unbeknownst to me, the bar, without any weights, weighed something like 40 pounds. I could not lift it. I was probably 80 pounds and could not lift a bar that was half my body weight. Fast-forward 25 years where I’m pushing a sled that weighs over 100 pounds, thanks to Fit Soldiers. For the first time in my life, I feel strong. I can do a pull-up (singular), toe push-ups, and crank out some serious burpees. Read More
My name is Mary Brown. My husband, AJ Brown, and I have been married for almost nine years and have known each other for 16! I’m 32 years old with two kids, ages 12 ½ and 3, and life is constantly crazy between working full time and parenting two children in completely different developmental stages. I’m a Colorado Native whose parents still live in the same house they did when I was born.
Prior to coming to Fit Soldiers I was minimally physically active. I played a few sports in high school, but after that working out consisted of getting on a treadmill or elliptical at some gym for half an hour and calling it good. Having a busy home and work life also made eating an issue, and I often looked for what was easiest and fastest to cook without paying any attention to portion control or nutritional content. I didn’t feel confident in myself or my physical abilities, and I struggled with finding the motivation to make any kind of significant change.
Well my fitness journey and life really started 2 years ago. At that time I could look into a mirror and tell myself I was not there. I am in a career field where you actually need to be fit to be able to perform and do your job duties. I finally made the conscious decision to look at what my options were. In the past I had a gym membership to various big gyms and would go but I had no direction and lacked the know-how. I can remember back in high school I was fit because I was young and playing sports. Then life happened. I spent years building terrible habits and really not paying attention to what I needed to do to stay optimal.

At almost 50 years old I can say I feel stronger than I have felt since I was a teenager. I came to Fit Soldiers 4 years ago at an all-time high weight. I haven’t always struggled with my weight but after having three children and focusing on raising them I stopped exercising regularly or paying attention to good nutrition. As a child and teenager, I had always been active and participated in sports, mostly track and swimming in high school and hiking and water skiing in college, but as I got older I forgot how much I loved to do those things.
