Born and raised in Santa Clara County, Colin has been interested in health and fitness ever since his first introduction to a weight room while playing football at Bellarmine.While this was a starting point, it was not until college that he was driven to make a difference in the health and fitness industry. During his sophomore year, his long time ...
Before you dive in, there is something we want you to know: We understand. Most fitness facilities these days seem like all they care about is working you to death, then blaming you when you get hurt or do not get results. The truth is, if you are over 40, the workouts you used to do just won’t work anymore. It’s that simple, but no one seems to care about the 40+ crowd. We do.
We have been specializing in getting people JUST LIKE YOU results for the last 6+ years. When you work with us, you can expect: To lose weight (and KEEP it off). Personal training that leaves you feeling energized and accomplished. TRX, Boot Camp, and Cardio classes that will boost your metabolism and give you the results you want in a fraction of the time. Full accountability and expert coaching that keeps you on track. A clean, inspirational space where you feel comfortable and safe.
I decided to start with Mint Condition because I wasn’t happy with the way I looked and hadn’t been happy with it for a long time. I was called fat twice, and it hurt. I needed something I needed to make a change, and that's why I came to Mint.
I’ve lost a lot of pounds and inches! Pants that I never thought I’d fit into again, fit! Clothes feel better, I feel better, I feel confident. That's the biggest reward - self-confidence and self-esteem.
What I like best about the program is the accountability. I have a set appointments, and it's become part of my weekly routine. I look forward to my workouts; I know how much better and stronger I’ll feel after each one, and if I don't come in, the only person it's going to injure is me. I won't be able to get the results I want without my trainer and the support I get here.
If you're thinking about joining Mint, I would say come in for the consultation. I knew once I saw the brochure and met with Colin that this was what I needed. Even just coming in the doors and watching how the session and facilities work, you get the feeling this place isn't like and other gym you've been in. You’ll be hooked in no time.
Being a nurse, taking care of patients, and being obese is not setting a very good example, especially when you’re trying to teach somebody to lead a healthier lifestyle. I made the decision to get healthy for me and my family this year, so I could be a better mom, a better wife, and a better nurse.
Since starting my program at Mint Condition, I’m stronger with more energy. I’m feeling good and looking good!
I enjoy the semi-private sessions because of the camaraderie and being able to push one another, and having the trainer expertise there to show you how to do the workouts. It also helps you to be more accountable, knowing someone is waiting for you two or three times a week! So rain or shine, I will be here.
Even if your fitness level is non-existent at this point, give Mint a try! They will cater to where you’re starting and get you to where you want to be.
I decided I needed to start a fitness program because I realized I had gained an awful lot of weight.
My blood pressure was out of control and my eating was out of control, so I decided to come back to a program that I knew would work.
My results have been absolutely amazing! I went from a size 14 women’s pants to a 6, I lost lots of inches, and I’ve lost about 14 pounds so far; Mint Condition is really working for me.
I love the philosophy that Mint Condition has – it’s both body and mind! And my trainer really gives me that boost when I need it and is so encouraging, and that’s why I come here – because they are #1!
To someone on the fence about joining Mint Condition Fitness, I would say “Do it!” It’s hard; when I first started coming, I thought, “I can’t believe I’m going to do this three days a week and make this commitment,” but once you do make the commitment, it is completely life-changing. It’s not a diet, it’s a change of lifestyle, and I would say absolutely go for it! You’ll feel great, and you’ll love it.
I cannot really remember when my weight loss journey began because, honestly, it has been a struggle all my life. For me, the ‘Yo-Yo’ syndrome was a constant, starting with another fad diet and ending with another round of weight gain, eventually ballooning me up to 300 lbs at one point.
So, after trying almost everything, my success story started with the introduction to Nutrisystem as a cost-effective way to regain control over my eating patterns. To my surprise, the food was quite good and I started to see results!
The real turning point for me, however, was when I ended a toxic relationship and realized that it was time to focus on ME. After years feeling emotionally drained, I could finally focus my efforts on getting the ‘real’ me back.
Going in with much trepidation, I met Colin and Brad. These are two of the nicest and most real trainers I have ever encountered. No hard sell, no gimmicks (thank goodness!), just great training and great people.
What really helped me was that they seem to have a variety of price points so that even as an educator I was still able to join and train with them.
What has probably been most significant about my time at Mint Condition is how my relationship with exercise has changed. When it comes right down to it, I have never liked exercise.
For years, I would talk myself out of doing the one thing that would ensure a leaner and stronger person. Sure, I had my gym membership that would be dusted off a couple times a month, but overall, I just could not commit.
Fast forward to today and I can confidently say that I have found an exercise routine that really fits my needs. I am a group member at Mint Condition and I could not be more pleased!
The training sessions focus on key areas of the body, switch every few weeks (excellent muscle trickery!), and are less than an hour (love that!). The best part about the exercises is that most of them can also be done at home on your own time.
Here is the bottom line: I went from a high of 300 lbs. to 204 lbs. today. When I first started at Mint Condition, I had a 44-46 waistline and XXL shirts were still a close friend. Within a year, I had a 38 waistline.
This is the absolute craziest part: I can proudly state that I am wearing L shirts. WHAT??
I find myself having more energy which is greatly needed in the classroom on a daily basis. I am getting stronger and more athletic, which allows me to crank up the intensity. Food is no longer my co-dependent; it is a love that I get to enjoy each day.
BTW – I am talking about REAL food. Nutrisystem ended for me several months ago. Now is all about portion control and substitutions.
Thank you Mint Condition for providing a non-threatening yet challenging environment where I was able to find my inner athlete!”
First, I just want to say thank you to everyone at Mint Condition Fitness.
I had gains and losses at your Transformation Challenge. From the very first get together — I gained motivation, friendship and a plan!!!!
Each day I attended my interval class with my trainer and with my fellow class mates I gained encouragement and the desire to support my classmates.
I gained confidence that I could achieve my goal.
I gained the confidence to work out at the gym and walk more and explored other ways to exercise when I wasn’t in the gym.
I gained the confidence to avoid food and drink that compromised me achieving my goal.
I lost pounds and inches and I gained the confidence to continue this healthy life style for the rest of my life!!!!!
I want to thank Colin for having this program because Mint Condition gives us a safe, wholesome, and happy environment to get our healthy lifestyle back!!!
