RippedFam Results

Jessica Holguin

While self quarantined I thought back to when I started my journey to self discovery at 300lbs. In the beginning the goal was just to be able to walk and climb stairs without hyperventilating. The wins were small and the body aches continued because my weight caused my knees and lower back pain. Everyday was a …

Matt made an effort to lose belly fat and tone up. He saw results, but when he found the RIGHT workout, and determination he crushed his goals. “Ripped has been mad impactful on my progress. I thought I’d share a pic before/after I found ripped…  I started loosing the belly by the time I found …

What made you come to Ripped? After my Golden Retriever dog of 13 years passed away, I became super depressed and stopped working out. I never thought I would feel that way, it threw me by surprise. I gained 30lbs for the first time in my life. After coming out of my depressive state, I realized …

I FINALLY understand how exercising is addicting… It only took 8 years and lots of nagging from my girlfriend… I’ve always wanted to be in shape. Not only for my physical appearance, but also because I have always struggled with mental health. Which ironically, has also been my excuse for NOT getting my butt into …

My fitness journey started roughly two years ago when I was in the midst of one of the most stressful, emotional, hectic and demanding points in my life. Looking back, this is probably one of the most critical moments in my own personal growth and development, not to mention the point where I started to …

I’ve been a member at RippedPHL for six months. I’ve always been consistent at going to the gym and had a personal trainer in the past, but when I moved to the city in January it was hard to find a gym I enjoyed.  I joined two gyms but could not find the motivation to …

STRONG is the word I would use to describe myself.  Thinking I was in shape and ready to take on something new, I tried my first class at Ripped last September.  Well, I made it through, but knew I had only just begun. Almost a year later, I feel stronger as an athlete and person.  …

My RippedPHL journey began in the summer of 2016. I had signed up for my first marathon, but I was having a hard time finding motivation and time to train for it while finishing up my anesthesiology residency. Luckily, I had been seeing advertisements for a new running based workout gym right around the corner …

I have been looking for something like Ripped for a long time. I have been working out since 9th grade and now I am in my late 40’s, I have always been frustrated by the traditional routine of doing Cardio training separate from the weight training as they are not two different disciplines they are …

Kerri Lee

I joined Ripped about 1.5 years ago. I’ve always enjoyed being active, but life had got really busy prior to that. I spent the previous 4 years having 2 beautiful babies, going to school part-time, and working. I was about to finish grad school and knew that my next goal would be getting fit. To …

My fitness journey started when I was 22, working my first desk job after college, and hadn’t stepped foot in a gym since high school. I absolutely love food but knew nothing about nutrition, and as I stayed in denial about my weight climbing, I was horrified when I returned from a family vacation to …

I have loved playing sports since I was young! As a kid, I played on a million different teams  and juggled soccer, basketball, field hockey, and lacrosse. In high school, I concentrated on field hockey and lacrosse and continued to play club field hockey at Virginia Tech. Being on a team and playing sports was …

Samantha Citron

My love affair with Ripped PHL began a little over a year ago. I was working at the front desk at a cycling studio where I also worked out consistently. When the cycling studio closed, I had to decide where I would workout. I had taken classes at Ripped PHL before and always enjoyed them …

My journey with Ripped PHL My journey, or as I like to call it, my enlightenment with Ripped PHL started a couple of years ago when my favorite workout studio closed and I was grieving the loss (I know that sounds weird but Lithe Method was an amazing community for me) and I just wasn’t …

My fitness journey is really really long, so I’ll give you the short version. I was not really into fitness that much in high school. I quit gym class as soon as it became “optional”.  I did cheerleading, which I loved, but I got mad at my coach when he made us run and I believe I …
