You know the drill #RIPPEDFamily—the celebrations are never ending! Meet Angel Chadwell, another one of our three R.I.P.P.E.D. 2 Fit Challenge winners. Angel teaches R.I.P.P.E.D. and Rumble at her studio, Hi NRG Fitness in Christiansburg, VA. She has been a certified instructor now for 4 years and enjoys teaching such a fun, effective format while gaining support from R.I.P.P.E.D. Family.
Get to know her story below:
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What do you like about R.I.P.P.E.D.?
Angel: I get a total body workout that changes often enough so that my participants see results yet don’t get bored. I am allowed flexibility to mix and match Seasons as long as I follow the proper format, so that allows me to keep everyone on their toes. I have a diet and nutrition plan that I can follow to be my healthiest self, and it’s free! I’m surrounded by supportive and motivational people…What is NOT to like about that?!
R.I.P.P.E.D.: Why did you choose to do the R.I.P.P.E.D. 2 Fit Challenge?
Angel: I entered the R.I.P.P.E.D. 2 Fit challenge along with several from my studio. I was already eating an overall healthy diet but knew there was definitely room for improvement and I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I enlisted my husband’s help and support (he’s the one who does the cooking at our house.)
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What were your main motivators through the challenge?
Angel: It was very rewarding to be on this journey with those from my studio as well. In addition to the R2F Facebook group, we had our own private group at the studio. I could see them changing right before my eyes! We took each other’s weekly progress photos, talked about our journey, did measurements, celebrated numbers coming down.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What was the most exciting part of your journey?
Angel: It was a big eye-opener when one’s husband went to the doctor and his blood sugar had dropped from just over 200 to just about 100 in just a few weeks! Medications are gone and new clothing sizes all around! I was honestly so excited about everyone’s results, and don’t get me wrong, I am thrilled with MY results, too! To date, I’ve lost nearly 14 pounds and 13 1/2 inches off my body. Who wouldn’t be happy with results like that?
We’re beyond happy—we’re ecstatic for you Angel. You are no doubt a rock star! Thanks for sharing your story and spreading the wealth of a healthy lifestyle through your classes.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: Anything else you’d like to add?
Angel: I’m truly blessed to be part of the R.I.P.P.E.D. Family and represent R.I.P.P.E.D. and RUMBLE. Anyone who can be part of this program should not hesitate, but do it without a second thought. I am excited to see what’s in store for R.I.P.P.E.D. because I know it’s going to be awesome!
