Joining outlaw north was one of the best decisions of my life. I’ve only been a member for four months or so but I’ve learnt SO much and had SO much fun and have so many new friends and people that inspire me!
Even though I was super nervous at first because I’m kind of shy and I’d never even really set foot in a gym before and had never made it past the first tryout for any team in school, (I tried out for them ALL haha) and it was a spur of the moment decision when I first emailed saying I was interested, right from my intro sessions Lacey and Jay made me feel super comfortable and were really patient with my billions of questions (Jay: “do you know what a dead-lift is?” Rachael: “holding it above your head?” Jay: “um nooo…” lol). All of the coaches are amazing and super knowledgeable, and always looking out for all of us and finding ways to scale movements to whatever level you’re at. So there are no excuses not to try it :)
The one-on-one nutrition class I would 100% recommend, Lacey is brilliant at creating personalized goals and helping you stick to them, and though she makes the process manageable, the results will have you feeling like you’re a nutrition superstar.
Besides the actual working out, which is really hard but awesome, the culture Jay & Lacey have cultivated is really unlike anywhere else. It feels more like a family (admittedly, a big crazy family) than a gym and I look forward to going all day. Everyone at outlaw is super supportive of each other, regardless of what level you’re at, and everyone celebrates each other’s accomplishments and looks out for one another. You’ll never finish a workout without getting a bunch of high fives and a bunch of smiles after. and I guess that’s why they call it the happy gym :)
