John Pickering is such an inspiration to anyone who has the great privilege of seeing him train. The things he is able to do during his sessions is really incredible - most people 40 years younger would have trouble doing some of the movements he conquers! John has a terrific attitude about trying new exercises and to his overall training. He always gets to the gym early and stays after, which has really accelerated his ability to train and progress. Also, he rarely misses a session and when he does he makes it up within a week - truly committed to feeling great and being active inside and outside the gym. He is also eager to work through movements that are a challenge to him (he even asks his trainer, Nick to try them again so he can get better at them). We couldn't be more inspired by John and the attitude, mindset, and friendly personality that he brings to the gym every single time. Thank you, John - keep inspiring all of us at WILCOX, the trainers and all the clients appreciate everything you do.
The first ever High Five Award goes to Nikki Fletcher.
High Fives Nikki! 👋
Nikki has experienced some amazing changes in her approach to training over the last several months. She has really committed to our Habits for Massive Impact. This has allowed her to lose some serious inches and Nikki even says that she loves the way she feels when she is moving! She has even gotten her family to adopt some amazing nutrition habits. Nikki’s positive attitude is contagious - we have never seen Nikki in a bad mood, in fact, she has one of the biggest, best smiles every time she walks in the door. This type of approach to life and to her efforts in the gym have lead to great success!
Congratulations Nikki and we all thank you for your inspiring effort and enthusiasm to health and wellness!
Here's a MASSIVE HIGH FIVE for you!!
Much Love, Wilcox Wellness & Fitness
How a stay at home mom fully committed to healthy living - not just for herself but for her daughter too
We want to be the very best versions of ourselves. We want to live our life with vibrancy. We want to be the life of the party! We want our kids to be excited to play with us. We want to be excited to play with our kids! We want to live our life without any limitations. We want to come home from work at the end of the day and have more to give our family - instead of just melting into the couch.
Emily Stanley wanted more - being a stay at home mom she was 100% committed to being there for her daughter and just like everyone else, her health and happiness took a backseat to everyone else’s health and happiness.
Emily rode the fence on joining our KickStart Program - unsure if she had the time, unsure if she was ready, and unsure if she had the mojo to get it done.
We are so happy Emily joined us. This is Emily’s Story:

Melissa always has such a positive attitude and she has inspired her entire family and those closest to her to cultivate a lifestyle of health and wellness. She has not only transformed her life – she has transformed the lives of people around her.
Melissa Canwell is an inspiration. Her story is a story of determination, grit, and commitment.
She has gained the confidence to do all of the things in life that she loves doing and has also fallen in love with some new activities. Melissa has gotten very into mud runs and obstacle course races and even organized a team from Wilcox to participate in the first Wicked Muddy Mainer this year.
It hasn’t been an easy path for Melissa – she has experienced some set backs with injuries that she sustained while doing an obstacle course race.
This is where the story gets good – most people would use this as justification to Netflix & Chill. Not Melissa. She was back to her training session just one week after breaking her ankle. Our trainers were able to make modifications to stabilize her ankle so that she could still remain consistent with her training program.
If Melissa’s story has inspired you, we would love to talk with you about how to get started with your commitment to healthy living. Click here to schedule a time to chat with us:

Tammy has such a positive attitude and is an absolute joy to train. Her positive energy and strong work ethic is contagious and especially helpful during the Early Bird sessions when most people are half asleep. We just love that Tammy is always willing to try new exercises and the brightness that she brings to the training sessions.
"My name is Tammy McLaughlin, I'm 43 years old, I am a certified dental assistant and clinical team leader at creative Dental Solutions, and I also hold a massage therapy license on the side.
I was so nervous about making email contact, I scoured every inch of the website over and over and over again and I bet I filled out that initial contact form a dozen times before I actually hit send.
I was so worried about feeling uncomfortable and out of place like I had in past other gyms, but I very quickly found that I had nothing to worry about.
The trainers are wonderful group of people I love every one of them. Their positivity, caring, and happiness is contagious, and the people that I work out with, they're like family. I love that it feels like we're all in it together.
I look forward to seeing these people everyday and I love to meet new clients because I know how much they're going to love it here too.
I was miserable. I'd been physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted for so long. I was stuck in a routine of terrible insomnia only to fall asleep 30 minutes before my alarm would go off, and then hit snooze 5 times, not having enough time to eat breakfast and then head off for a very long day of work.
Then after work I would come home eat and fall asleep in front of the recliner until it was time to get up and go to bed and then repeat.
I had chronic headaches, chronic brain fog, and a chronic bad mood which wasn't good for anyone.
I also have a family history of Alzheimer's disease. If that's in the cards for me in the future, will committing to a healthy lifestyle change that for me? I hope so, either way I want to ensure that I'm able to fully enjoy my life whatever the future brings.
I think the biggest impact for me is that training here has given me back control of my life. It's so much easier from the state I'm in right now to be aware of how I'm feeling both mentally and physically, and how little change is an activity and nutrition have such a huge effect. I have so much more energy than I had before. I no longer have a chronic headache and I can think so much more clearly, and I'm just generally so much more happy."
"I have totally enjoyed working out at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness. It was a great move for me to join and I couldn't be happier. I look forward to gaining strength and endurance over the weeks and months to come.
Pete Warner went through our KickStart Program about a year ago and has stuck with his training sessions for the past 365 days and has seen incredible results. Pete recently published this follow up article describing his health and fitness journey at WILCOX.
“A year into this new regimen, I’m stronger and more agile. My balance has improved tremendously and I have more stamina… Doing yard work and other projects that may have once induced fatigue is now easier. Trudging through the woods on deer hunting expeditions also is more enjoyable.” states Pete in his article.
It just goes to show you how much your life can change by focusing on healthy habits that are sustainable for a lifetime! Pete said it best, “The first step can be a small one, but it’s the most important one. With determination, patience, and support, a more fit and happier you is within your grasp.”
Great job Pete - thank you for sharing your story!
Our trainers are blown away by Nicole Barbeau. She has made so much progress in just a month of training with us - even the trainers notice her confidence as she is training. We love your determination, Nicole! Keep it up, you are inspiring us all!
A healthy mindset is so incredibly important. It is the framework for everything in our lives, the lens from which we experience the world. Hannah, we are so honored to support you in your growth. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your health and fitness journey.
We are so impressed with Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn is a stay at home mom to a 6-month old and 3 year old. She started training with us because she wanted more energy and stamina to keep up with her busy household.
