  • April has proven herself over and over again not only through my personal success of nearly 40 lbs. lost and a 10% decrease in body fat in only five and a half short months, but she does it the safest and healthiest way possible with a lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise for each of her classes and clients. I've never felt so strong, so beautiful, and so confident in myself that it's almost as if I've been born again. Thank you April Gatlin for believing in me and being my rock and my motivator through this journey. I couldn't have done it without you. One thing that everyone needs to keep in mind while chasing your dreams and reaching your goals, as long as you want it as bad as she wants it for you, then you will succeed!

  • I have been a personal training client of April Gatlin’s for almost two years. You get a personalized program focused on what your needs are. Never the same old routine, something different every week. She’s helped me go from frumpy to firm, not only in muscles but in self-esteem and confidence!

    Mary Costa | 53 years old

  • My whole life I have always struggled with weight loss. After 43 years, I finally "got it"!!!! Starting BGW has changed me, my body, and my view on living a healthy lifestyle. Being held accountable by my trainer, April Gatlin, was the first step towards my change. The bootcamp pushed me beyond what I ever thought I could accomplish. This whole process has not been easy by any means, but well worth it!! I feel the best I have ever felt in my life. I now look at living a healthy lifestyle as part of my everyday life. A big thank you goes out to BGW, my fellow BGW friends, and most of all April Gatlin, who has guided me along in so many different ways.

    Kelly Peddle | 36 pounds lost

  • In May of 2012 my doctor told me that he wanted to put me on high blood pressure medication at age 33. I was at my heaviest weight ever of 347 pounds and I knew it was time to do something about it because I met April Gatlin, the owner of Beyond Gym Walls, Inc. I began training with her and she held me accountable with my diet and pushed me to work harder than I ever thought I was capable of. Over the past year of knowing and training with April and Beyond Gym Walls I have lost 110 pounds and have gone from a 50 inch waist to a 36 and an 3XL shirt to a large. I owe all of my success to April and Beyond Gym Walls.

    Carey Ackerman | 110 pounds lost

  • Since personal training with April, I’ve noticed significant changes in my core and overall balance and stability. Sitting behind a desk all day doesn’t do anything for your overall health so we need some encouragement and someone to push us at just the right time. Staying focused on my needs eliminates wasted time and efforts that has produced noticeable improvements.
