It comes down to four simple words: Commit to be fit!

At BarNone Training, just off 107th Street in Lenexa, Kansas, the rooms are packed before the sun comes up and until it goes down.

Wilson Thomas, a former professional athlete and certified fitness trainer, has people of all ages and fitness levels working hard at working out.

From people weighing 300+ pounds to marathoners, Wilson has plans that work.

How well do they work? Stay tuned. We’ve got a number that will get your attention. 

There is a weekly weigh-in but more motivating than that is the sense of relationship and accountability that develops here.

According to Wilson, who’s been doing this since 2008, many of us are not consistently self-motivating. But, if we have a team around us, that will call us to a higher state of accountability.

That is why so many people show up at 5 a.m. or come in after a full day’s work.

That, and results.

The before and after photos posted around the center are nothing short of amazing.

So, here’s that number; since the first of the year, BarNone’s clients have lost 5,000 pounds!
