GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.
The "one-size-fits-all" method to exercising is quickly becoming outdated. Today, there are more options than ever to live a fit life. However, fear can be the biggest obstacle standing in the way of greatness.
"It was scary to make that decision, but you get to a point in your life where you really want to do something that means something to you," said fitness professional Alecia Gordon.
Two years ago, Gordon enlisted help from fitness lifestyle coach Derek Trombetta. It was a decision that changed her life forever.
"I've done a couple of things that I never thought I'd do, that is, compete in two bodybuilding competitions as well as changed my career from being an accountant to being a fitness professional," said Gordon.
"To hear somebody say you've actually affected their life for the better, it's indescribable," said Trombetta.
The fitness coach is also a local firefighter. He says he's been in the business of helping others his entire life, but now, he's now taking that job to the next level.
"I've literally been to hundreds of gyms and I've never seen anything just like this."
His results-based fitness facility, 970Muscle, operates on positivity, encouragement and a will to rise above adversity.
"Having Derek there to support me and just smile from ear to ear every time I showed up at the gym was a lot of motivation," said Gordon.
"Literally it's my passion, you can see that. And I think you can feel that in here, and other people feel the same way," said Trombetta.
The facility is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's designed to meet the needs of everyone.
"Anybody that wants to train towards something and get results, this is something that facilitates that," Trombetta said.
"People of all levels can come here and feel very welcome," said Gordon.
"You know my purpose, even all of our purposes, is to enhance other people's lives and when we figure that out, it's amazing," said Trombetta.
He's helping people physically and mentally, no matter where they are in their fitness journey.
