Congrats to Amber for being February's Athlete of the Month!! Amber has always been tall and thin through out her life and has a hard time gaining muscle. When Amber started out on her fitness journey her main goal was not necessarily to lose weight, but to gain lean body mass and make better food choices. Amber has completely changed the shape of her body, gained strength, and quality muscle all while maintaining her weight!

EVERYTHING! Max effort is one big supportive family of crazy gym lovin' people. The coaches at this gym go above and beyond to run a successful strength and conditioning class while taking time to focus on the little things, like helping you on a skill you want to achieve, or making sure a new member is comfortable in a class. Everyone wants to see each other succeed and achieve new goals, it's such a positive environment!
