My name is Jillian Rodriguez and I am a 29 year old mom of two young children.

After gaining 55 lbs with my last pregnancy I knew something had to change. Not only was I unhappy with my weight gain I was physically in pain. After touring a few different gyms, my husband and I came to the conclusion that Ultima just seemed right for our family.

We have two young girls and the employees in the kid care as well as the rest of the staff have just been beyond amazing with them! I am a stay at home mom and my children, prior to joining Ultima, had never been away from me. My oldest was two and a half when we joined and had a very difficult time adjusting at first with being away from me. It wasn’t long though before she looked forward to going to the kid care center and playing with all of the new friends she had made! She always has such an amazing time when she is there and I really feel it was because of the great staff in the kid care and their patience that she now loves it so much. She always talks about all of the employees at Ultima and how she can’t wait to see them. Everyone there feels like a second family and always greets us with a smile.

One of the things I like most about Ultima is that there is something for everyone. My mom is a member at Ultima as well and LOVES going to all of the classes they provide. It has really improved her strength and energy which was one of her main goals and she has met some great people she now calls friend. My husband loves coming to Ultima for the atmosphere and the variety of equipment offered. He needs to stay in shape to keep up with our young children as well as staying fit and healthy for his job. Ultima has helped him to accomplish this.

It was hard to initially start my work out journey but about a year later and going about 6 days a week I am finally below my pre baby weight and physically stronger than I have ever been.

I cannot wait to see where this journey takes our whole family and we are so happy to do it at Ultima!
