"I started with Russell back in March. I can honestly say I have never experienced anything like Russell’s fitness program. For my entire adult life I have struggled with weight and finding a fitness program which would benefit me. I am not a person who hangs out in gyms or considers myself athletic and because of this I have a lot of insecurities and often defeat myself before I have even attempted. In other fitness programs I had, I was given instruction and did lose some weight but I was never inspired to become more fit, not only physically but also on a level which spans a lifestyle. However, I knew from the start that Russell was different. What he has, is unique. To be honest, 2 weeks into Russ’s fitness program, I was feeling just like I had in all the other programs - I was defeated yet again, feeling unable to complete his programs and not losing weight. It was at that moment that Russell intervened. He knew I often got in my own head and could tell I was feeling self defeated and he pulled me aside and shared with me his own stories of defeat and triumph and showed a level of depth of interest in my success that no other trainer ever has. From that day forward he would help me get out of my own head, and stay motivated to do that “30 more seconds” or “2 more reps.” I can honestly say I am today more fit, more motivated, and more ME then I ever have been in my life. Russ has a level of attention to detail which far exceeds any other trainer, and a level of empathy which makes you not afraid to fail and motivated to thrive. Russ takes the time to help you in anyway you need it, from motivational talks, to educating you, to looking over your food logs and making helpful suggestions. I’m happy to say that I’ve lost close to 20 pounds, lots of inches, and gained a healthier lifestyle thanks to Russ!"

I am officially a little over 3 months in my journey with Russell Scales and my results are starting to show...I have hard days and bad days still and sometimes feel like giving up but I always come back...I try my best to go to bootcamp 4-5 times a week and have been pretty consistent with that...I continue to make healthy food choices and drink lots and lots of water..I have gotten so close to the people I workout with at bootcamp, It's almost like family..i truly look forward to seeing my bootcamp people..I post my progress for anyone who is just starting and feeling like you can't do it or your not getting your immediate results...as Russell always says, "you get what you put in" so keep coming back and keep working and you will get there...One. Day. One. Workout. At. A. Time.
This is me, 22 pounds lighter and I dunno even know how many inches have shredded away..but I do know how many times I say thank you through out the day because people are constantly noticing my changes...I do know how many times I answer the question, You look great, what are you doing? I do know how many times I put on clothes in the morning only to take them them off because I can't keep them on my waist...Russell provides results and if you don't know, you better ask somebody!!!!

I began my journey with Russ at Prime Wellness about 8 months ago. The first 3 months were the most difficult. After I lost my initial 25 lbs.,
I have continued to work on my strength, endurance & nutrition that will continue to take me to the next level. Continuing bootcamp for me, gives me the
accountability, to show up. My fellow boot campers "rock a workout "& always make you want to work just as hard! I have wasted money on gym memberships
to "state of art" gyms, but without Russ to challenge me and push me to want more from every work out, a gym membership is like a "flatline" to me.
He has taught us, you can not just work out and continue to have bad food habits. Sharing his knowledge on food, along with how to reach our goals will be a
an ongoing way of life for me, always striving to gain more strength, be my healthiest & look and feel my absolute best.
Thank you so much Russ, for your ongoing support in my journey.

I started with Russ about six weeks ago. I had gained a lot of weight going through school, and working full time. I felt really bad about myself, I was tired all the time, and I knew I needed a change. I found Russ through a woman I work with and haven't looked back since. I go 3-4 times a week to his bootcamp classes. I really enjoy them because everyday is different, and I feel like I've accomplished something after every workout! Not only is Russ there to train you, he motivates you to do your personal best and not give up. He also helps with food recommendations, and checks food logs and gives advice. After only 6 weeks I have lost 50mm in body fold measurements, and almost 4 inches off my waist! I have honestly not felt this good in years. Russ promotes a healthy lifestyle, not just a workout regiment, and that's what makes training with him so great!

I gained a ton of weight after getting married, and I placed my health on the back burner. I didn’t know where to focus my efforts, and even tried the bootcamp classes at the gym. The trainer wasn’t accessible and would not take the time to demonstrate exercises, because I guess I was supposed to know what a “S KB Press” was… That’s terrifying for someone who hasn’t really used a set of weights. I wanted to get stronger, drop body fat, and increase my energy, but I needed some help. I saw Russell’s post about the “Lean by Halloween” challenge a few days before October 1st. It sparked my interest, because I saw how active he was on Facebook and the types of results people were seeing. He immediately responded to all my questions and concerns within minutes. I couldn’t believe the response time!
I decided to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself, and I’m glad that I did. In the first two weeks, I lost 34mm of body fat, gained strength, and despite all the strength training, I even lost a few pounds. I can’t say that the classes and nutrition are easy—there are days of struggle—but the way that I feel now is what makes the hard work worth it! With the Championlife Bootcamp Subscription, you’re not just getting a killer workout (yes, killer, because you will be sore). You’re getting a trainer that wants to see you succeed and provides the tools in order to help see that you do. You’re getting a comfortable atmosphere that allows you to go at your own pace. You get a nutrition group right at your fingertips. You’re getting a connection to a network of people that are pushing right along with you, thus, accelerating your motivation. You get the whole package!
If you are wondering where to start your journey to better health and fitness, put your trust in Russell Scales and his Championlife Bootcamp Subscription—you will not be disappointed!

Working with Russ Scales and his 'Champion Life' approach to fitness has been fantastic! I've seen encouraging results - but that's only one reason why I love participating in his morning bootcamps. I've lost body fat and several inches in my first month with Russ, which is very motivating. My favorite benefits, though, include the energy I feel throughout the day after a morning bootcamp with Russ! The intensity is just right-- he pushes me more than I push myself when working out solo. And the group dynamic fosters a team atmosphere - we all cheer each other on. I also like his mental approach to fitness - challenging us to be the best version of ourselves in all aspects of our lives. I'd recommend Russ Scales to anybody!
