Alyssa Mueller has been amazing to work with. She has taught me so much and is always available to answer my diet and exercise questions both inside and outside of the gym. She has changed the way I think about fitness, teaching me that there is more to working out than cardio and showing me the importance of weight training. Thanks to Alyssa for pushing me and making exercise enjoyable again.
I have been a member at Better Bodies since 2004. I was a sporadic gym goer for quite awhile. Todd would call now and then and ask how we were doing and asked if there was anything he could help us with. Then as years went by, I began attending the gym more frequently. More recently, I have trained for marathons and I am now trying my hand at figure competitions. I have become familiar with most of the staff at Better Bodies and couldn't ask for better trainers and front desk staff. They are willing to help when questions arise and demonstrate proper form when asked. The small group and large group training class are outstanding!!!! I love when they put together challenges for us to do. It helps get to know more members and develop close friendships. I love this gym and everything they have to offer.
When it comes to physical fitness & health, my philosophy has always been this: “Tend to the body. The mind & soul will follow.” Thanks to Scott Stevens AND Omaha Elite Kettlebell, this is 100% true for me on all platforms.
There IS no one better than Scott Stevens. Expect immaculate professionalism, courtesy, patience but Most Importantly, BEYOND ADVANCED Level of Knowledge AND Experience. His high level of expectation held for students/clients, is a major driving force for both client & instructor and sits abundantly clear. Failure is not an option.
Scott’s impeccable attention to detail of your every move is invaluable & inarguable. He is tough, but never mean and will hold you to your commitments & goals. He possesses a unique yet valuable ability to identify the difference between when you mentally don’t think you can go further, but he sees you can & will encourage you to do so. At the same time, he hears you & doesn’t continue to push when you know, you really ARE done.
Safety & correct form is ALWAYS front row – so whether you need to break yourself from poor form or bad habits, learn a movement for the 1st time OR you’re about to put yourself at risk for injury, no matter how subtle, Scott WILL catch it & correct you by walking you through the process. (This alone can serve as motivation not to slack on anything, because you will get caught! :))
Don’t want to take my word for it? Give him a call - in 5-10minutes you’ll KNOW what I say is true & you’ll feel you are in good hands. Ask for his bio, or even better, his list of credentials. There are so many, he would literally need to carry around an 11x14 business “poster” instead of card for contact info & referrals. 100% true. For me, he is my teacher and always will be, who truly can walk the walk, but he would rather show you how. He is a born teacher. It’s a true gift & it shows.
I ask you: why drink Evan Williams Whiskey once you’ve gotten used to 21-year old Red Breast? (google it or try it if you don’t know) – or trust me. It’s top notch quality, it’s divine and you ALWAYS get what you pay for. HE is worth every cent. Stop wasting your time shopping around.
Omaha Elite Kettlebell:
YOU & your well-being, STRENGTH & success are priority. ALWAYS at OEK. You will be taught in a way that is meaningful, clear & effective. Your questions will be answered thoroughly and you will be taught correctly & precisely from the beginning. You will learn that losing weight & increasing endurance come with StrongFirst kettlebell, but your Goal: is STRENGTH.
To some this matters, others maybe not - the community here is Niche but, well, Strong. Everyone I personally have encountered has been more than friendly & even better, ENCOURAGING, complementary & inclusive. What I’m about to say, sometimes comes as a surprise to people when I share because I do tend to make friends easily & enjoy people, HOWEVER, historically speaking in most places & settings, I tend to feel like I don’t belong; that I’m some sort of outcast or 3rd party on the outside looking in. I’m certainly not a hermit or a victim by any means but truth be told, I usually have some sense that I’m not part of the group. Yet, most people do want to feel like they belong. And at OEK, I legitimately DO feel like I belong; like I’ve found one of my few tribes. It matters who you surround yourself with. So you want to be stronger? Healthier? Live Happier? Surround yourself with other strong people & like-minded individuals. And I love this element & vibe you feel here in this regard. It’s just another asset that makes OEK truly unique.
Since middle school, my personal interaction with fitness & sports has been various school sports (basketball, volleyball, track & field) to cheerleading in college, a 12-year membership to 24-hour fitness, in which I participated in boot camps, aerobics, had a few personal trainers. I’ve done zumba, pilates, yoga, beachbody, just about all of it.
Incidentally, I ended up breaking my 12-year contract with the gym, once I discovered StrongFirst Kettlebell – as NOTHING, comparably engaged my body in full the way the movements do in StrongFirst. I felt SO strong so immediately & saw the fastest results YET! This, however, was nothing comparative to what Scott+Omaha Elite Kettlebell brings to you. Regardless of whether you do one on one training, or participate in the weekly classes, there is truly nothing like StrongFirst, embraced at OEK, in all the many vats of health & fitness I personally have experimented or engaged in. Get started! I look forward to seeing you there and become an even better YOU!!!! :)
This is the first time that I went to a gym that have free weights but everybody always says all they have bad attitudes and it's dirty I don't really think this place is dirty I thought it was pretty cool there was some big people nobody bothered me I mean I wouldn't care if they did anyway but I still think it had a great attitude and clean environment and maybe on under Renovations but I had a good time and I've really enjoyed it and I want to thank you iron Heaven gym
I've always dabbled in exercise and trying to fit in workouts. In 20 years, I've never been able to commit long term on anything though, until I started working out with Liz and Fit Mama! It is the most encouraging, non-threatening, no judgement community of women. Liz is sweet, caring and always has fun workouts and I've never done the same one twice. She does meal planning as well. I'm in my second year doing workouts here, and I love it!
