ACE-certified Success Stories



April Ulm
ACE-certified Personal Trainer
Phoenix, Arizona

A few short years ago I was an extremely overweight mother of two, miserable in my own skin. I was 25 years old and over 200 pounds! Exercise was the last thing on my mind—I wanted the easy way out. Each time I started to exercise I’d end up convincing myself I couldn’t do it and it was too hard. My health was starting to suffer and I had trouble keeping up with the kids and climbing the stairs. I knew something had to be done. Instead of feeling like a 25 year old, I felt 50.

I bought a treadmill and started walking at home. I slowly started to feel a difference. Then I decided I needed to change my eating habits. I knew I did not eat right but I didn't want to go to WeightWatchers or a place like that so I started on frozen Healthy Choice meals and continued to exercise.

I eventually felt ready to add in the strength training and joined Fitness One Gym in Phoenix, Arizona. This was the third time I had become a member there. I started working with a personal trainer who has now become one of my dearest friends. Thank you Kerri! She really is responsible for leading me down the path of personal training.

I am now an ACE-certified Personal Trainer and a small business owner with a great desire to help others like myself. The journey was not easy but now at 27 years old I am down to 130 pounds, healthy and can keep up with all my normal activities without any problem—even a few activities I never thought were possible for me.

This past year I competed in two figure competitions. I didn't have a chance in the world compared to some of those girls but I made it there from over 200 pounds and I got my body fat down. For the first time in years I was proud of my achievements thanks to exercise and eating right.
