Biggest Loser of Gibson County interview (female) 3


Laura Heidenreich answers the question “What would you say to someone who was maybe a little bit scared to join the contest?” Her answer “That was me!” Laura lost 10 inches last contest & wants to raise the bar this time! She’s hired a personal trainer to guide her. I even saw her doing the deadlift the other day. I said “Laura’s doing the deadlift?! Next she’ll be a bodybuilder!” lol

We have 16 contestants so far eyeing the cash prize. Ages 17-52. We have one bodybuilder. Weights range from 158 to 332. Bodyfat range 28.7% to 49.5%.

Princeton Fitness is an exciting 24 hr fitness center that is huge- it spans 2 buildings on the historic town square in Princeton, Indiana (Gibson County). PF is locally owned/ operated by Jennifer, a small-business owner. We have 8,500 square feet & 4 floors of space, cardio, tons of weight plates, benches, Sprint Circuit machines, 4 heavy bags hanging, & a huge room for aerobics/kick-boxing/Tae Kwon Do. There’s a quiet loft for yoga and massage therapy. In filming for YouTube, we share the neat stuff & my members can critique themselves.

See before & after pictures of the Biggest Losers of ’07 & ’08 at myspace/princetonfitness & videos of the quarterly Strong Man competitions (Next: Apr 26th, 1 pm) at youtube/princetonfitness (You can join the Biggest Loser contest at any time. There’s one going on now. Next Kickoff: Apr 12th, 10am- weigh-in & intro to the program.) We have 16 contestants so far eyeing the cash prize. Ages 17-52. We have one bodybuilder. Weights range from 158 to 332. Bodyfat range 28.7% to 49.5%.

Our rates are low enough that everyone can afford us, with limited memberships at only $3/wk. Full access is only $4.50/wk. Sign up with someone else & save- full access for 2 is only $7/wk. …But don’t let the cheap rates fool you. This place is nice & improving every week, as we are remodeling room by room. The atmosphere is old school, where 100-year-old architectural charm meets modern convenience. If you’ve never been inside (or haven’t been in the last 3 months) you should check it out. Even members who come in once a week are surprised by the changes we make each week. Shane Bonaparte (Princeton) said, “I don’t even go there to work out anymore… I just come to see what you’ve done. I love that place. I don’t call it Princeton Fitness… I call it My Place!” Other testimonials are on my website at home.insightbb/~fit

Evansville TKD Academy is opening a new branch in Princeton, upstairs at PF. Taekwon-Do classes held Tues & Thurs 5:30 pm. Ages 6 & up. $40/mo. 2nd & 3rd family members $20/mo 4th or more family members $5/mo . Uniforms $35.99 plus tax. SPECIAL- 1st mo plus uniform $69 (save over $11).

I get a kick out of teaching people how to use the machines & setting them up on training programs that suit their needs. Once they know what to do to make changes, it’s as if this becomes their personal gym & all I do is keep their towels clean & answer the phones for them! I also enjoy seeing the members come out of the kickboxing class covered in sweat & saying “Great class!” & when they say their pants are falling off them! It is empowering to take control of your waistline & I love being a part of it.

The key in making a business like this work is to A) create a place where people are comfortable & free to try new things B) give them the right equipment, training & encouragement C) know when to push & when to coddle & D) be there when they need you. After all, it’s the people that make this place great!
