Crystal Trahan
Founder/Leader
There was a point in my life when I felt that I was at end of my rope. I was stuck in a miserable marriage, suffering with depression, and taking prescribed antidepressants. I was a stay at home mother of four who was shy and absolutely hated herself.
So, in 2006, I started to exercise. Not because I wanted to or even thought I could look a certain way, but because I heard exercise helped with depression and I was desperate. One of my first memories of my father was watching the Olympia show together and him saying to me, You know you could do that. I thought, NO way! My dad loved to lift and he walked every afternoon. I remember lifting with him and how much I loved it. I felt strong and it made me feel good about myself. I wanted to get back to that feeling, so I decided to try. Someone had given me a BowFlex. It had been sitting in my living room and I decided it was time to start using it. One day a few months later, I saw a picture of myself and did not recognize the person I saw. It was the first time I saw something that was beautiful on me¦.MUSCLES! I realized my life might have been out of control, but with weights I could control what my body looked like. Then, one day, I heard cardio would burn that stubborn layer of fat, so I decided to start trying to run. I knew it would make me sweat and I HATED to sweat! On my first try, I could only run to one mailbox. I just could not run, so I researched it and discovered a breathing technique that changed everything. I teach it to all of my clients today. In-2-3, Out-2-3. That's was it! Now I was starting to lose weight, but something was missing. I had no clue how to eat! I tried to eat healthy food, but felt clueless. I took it one day at a time and did my research. I would wake up, read, exercise, and run. My body was changing, my life was changing, and most of all, my mind was changing. I got a job as a receptionist and without even realizing what I was doing, I started training the girls in the office. One day, my boss approached me about chasing my dream. Dream? I didn't have a dream or did I? I gave up my job, ordered personal training books, and began to study. Soon after, I joined a church and met a man who would be managing a gym close by. He invited me to check it out. When I walked in, it was only rafters, but I knew without a doubt I would change my life, and others, in this gym! I started to teach cycle and pump group fitness classes! With this new routine and the knowledge I was gaining about healthy eating, my body had changed tremendously and my confidence sky rocketed! Within moths I was approached to start training others and I decided to TRY. Within 3 months, I went from three clients to 15! Life was perfect right?

May 2012 began the journey of a lifetime for me! When I walked into that gym that day to start bootcamp, I had no idea that it would be the first day of the beginning of my life. I was overweight, depressed, and miserable.
I didn’t know who I was, didn’t know where I wanted to go, and was very far from God. Today, I can sat that none of those things are true! Doing bootcamp and spin changed my life and my body. Losing 120 lbs. was the bonus of this journey because I have found a new passion. Being able to help people change their lives, reach goals, gain confidence, and find their own strength brings me the greatest joy! It’s what drives me every single day! “Crazy Works” (clearly!) and I’m so thankful for my new life.

In January of 2013 I hopped on the crazy train to become healthy and fit and what a wild ride it has been. With God and Crystal by my side and 87 pounds gone, I have changed from the inside out. I can honestly say that I feel better then I ever have.
Within 7 months I lost the weight but I have gained so much more. I am now a spin instructor, and run 5k and 10k, and best of all a personal trainer. I'm ready to help countless women get their smile back, their life back, and their confidence back with an added bonus of losing the weight they desire. The truth is when you come into our gym it is like no other, you will change from the inside out. The most important part of this experience is the fact that you will not be the same person as when you walked in those doors. You will be stronger mentally, physically, and spiritually. I will help you reach and exceed your goals and show you what your fullest potential truly is. You can go further then you ever imagined, you are stronger then you know, and you are valuable and worthy. I aim to motivate and encourage others towards a more positive healthy and active lifestyle through fitness, surrounding you with not only great trainers but creating friendships and bonds within boot camps of people who are on the same journey that understands your struggles. What sets us apart form other gyms is the fact that we achieve goals together by guiding you in healthy eating, give you accountability, and a challenging workout that is modified for all levels. We believe in eating healthy and doing it the right way, no pills, no gimmicks, no tricks.

Hi, I'm Sandra Lejeune, sister to Crystal. I am a mother of four with a love for fitness; I live a fulfilled life of happiness and healthfulness. But, it wasn't always this way.
My childhood wasn't exactly picture-perfect. My parents lived a life of drug addiction, and I feel as though that heavily impacted my life direction. Their decisions made me want a better life for my own family and myself. I was a single mom for ten years, working as a waitress and later secretary, all while juggling the many responsibilities that come with parenting. I was lost for a very long time, being a smoker and a young person who liked to party, but one day, I got saved and decided to change my ways. I began teaching 2nd-grade students and continued to do so for seven years. I worked hard to give my children the life that I never had, offering them the opportunities I wasn't afforded. I met my husband and later married him in 2011; I had a baby in 2012. I gained 40 pounds after delivering; it was a great struggle to try to lose the weight. I, on more than one occasion, turned to weight loss products to help, but nothing was keeping the weight off. I've heard about the numerous success stories that Crystal and the trainers would share, but I was still too stubborn and resentful to give it a try myself. I felt that the gym had stolen my sister from me. However, I couldn't successfully lose the weight by myself, and I found myself in an extremely dark place. I felt hopeless, depressed, defeated, tired, and frustrated; I couldn't stand the person I saw in the mirror. I wanted to give up, but, I reached out to my sister, and I'm extremely grateful that I did. I got with a trainer, joined boot camp, and I'd soon lost those 40 pounds. All the while, I found myself falling in love with the gym and spin. One of my turning points was when I would run with people to the finish line at races, even after I had already finished. I would push them, motivate them to keep going. I realized that I enjoyed helping others finish more so than finishing myself! I stayed in boot camp encouraging my boot camp sisters, and I soon realized, after steadfast prayer and fasting, that I had been avoiding my calling for so long: my call to be a trainer. I have now gained a strong passion for fitness, and I find immense joy from helping others reach their goals (not only weight-wise but also in their personal lives) and encouraging them to chase and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I realize now why Crystal loves fitness so much; this gym founded on God is one of the few places I've found peace and encouragement in. It's more than just a gym to me; we, all of us, are a family and a team, all with the same goals in mind. Through this place, I have found myself again; I have been recreated, transformed, and I am brand new. I now get to work with my sister and godchildren, and my own children attend boot camp as well. And now, my husband has joined in on our lifestyle. I am the happiest I've ever been. We live in bodies we love and with a gym family that we love. My sister was right, crazy really works. Come get crazy fit with me!

Like a lot of people after finishing college I got married, got a job, and had many other priorities ahead of my health and working out. This included a lot of food and drinks and a primarily sedentary life style that when all combined led me to being my heaviest weight ever at almost 300lbs.
In 2010 two life changing events happened. I lost both of my grandparents only 3 months apart and my first daughter was born. Both events made me realize I needed to change my life and get healthier. It took 2 years though before I really got serious about changing my life. During those 2 years I’d start working out off and on, eat o.k. for a few days then go back to old habits. Finally in 2012 we joined Cajun Fitness and I started working towards my first goal of running a 5K my friend was organizing. From there I got more serious about weight training and researching how and what to do to put on muscle and lose weight. I found boot camp through this efforts and it helped me dial in my nutrition and lose the last 20 or so pounds. After training and doing boot camp for about 2 years and losing close to 100lbs my focused shifted primarily to weight training and trying to get as strong as possible. Through this I found the sport of powerlifting and have been doing that for the last 3 years. It is a continued journey in which I am always trying to learn, grow, and get better at gaining strength through training and using proper nutrition to fuel my workouts and add lean muscle. At Revfit gym I currently run a boot camp, do online training, and teach spin.

I started spinning with Crystal in 2013 and started bootcamp January 2014 and still going strong. I know without bootcamp and the encouragement from Crystal and my daughter Court I would not have the muscle gain and better eating habits I have today.
I always thought I ate right and exercised enough and for the most part I did.. I have been working out since I was in high school. I just was NOT eating the right foods or lifting enough weight to make a difference. So why stay in bootcamp all these years? I need the accountability Crystal holds you to and also I love the relationship I have formed with my bootcamp family. I could not do this without them. Remember I LOVE to talk and most of the time that gets in the way Not sure what's harder gaining weight or losing weight. Just remember we all have our own bridges to cross. Also, thank you Stephanie Gaudet for being my original bootcamp partner and Sandra Lejeune for putting up with me now in bootcamp.. So Looking back at my old pics OMG, I needed food and heavier weights. Now I am a trainer and I love it. I am currently training the 50+ ladies and they are amazing. They give me there ALL everyday. Thank you Crystal from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with these amazing women.

I started my fitness journey in the summer of 2013, and my life has been changed ever since! I remember being in Costa Rica, one of the most beautiful places, and all I could think about was how uncomfortable I was in my own skin and in a bathing suit at such a young age. That’s when I knew something had to change.
I was on the fast track to being overweight and living an unhealthy lifestyle. When I got home from that trip, I hired Crystal as my personal trainer and lost 22 pounds that summer. What I gained was so much more! With hard work and dedication, I am now living a life I love, in a body that I love, and I get to help others do the same! The first step is taking that leap of faith and trusting yourself to get through this process. Trust me, I know it’s scary, I’ve been there! I was so afraid of all of the things I would have to give up (unhealthy food, alcohol, sleep in order to get to the gym early, laziness, EXCUSES!) to get to where I wanted to be… but what about everything you could gain? What about being able to wear anything in your closet and feel confident in it? Or being able to be active with your family outdoors? Or just being physically stronger than you ever thought possible? Could you imagine what your life would be like if you just lost all of your excuses and made your fitness and health a priority in your life? How much different would your life be and how much better would you feel? I love being able to work with women and help them find their confidence again. Self-love can be one of the hardest things to teach ourselves, but I get to see people loving themselves more and more every day at our gym, and it’s such a beautiful thing! I truly believe that if you have the right mindset, learn to believe in yourself, and are ready to put in the work, you can achieve whatever goal you have set for yourself… even if it seems so far out of your reach right now… I promise you, you can get there!

Broken is the one word I would use to describe myself when I stepped foot into Revfit Gym.My insides were just as broken as my outside. New mom of a precious baby girl named Harleigh. I had fallen victim to post-partum depression and had completely given up on everything.
I decided to join RevFit after seeing a dear friend's transformation and being so unhappy with myself and how much I had let myself go. I made this decision in hopes of finding the old me. Needless, to say RevFit and Crystal surpassed all my expectations. I not only found the old me, I found a better me. A happier me. I learned to love myself, which turned into me being able to love others. Crystal taught me to shift my mind and my heart, she changed my inside first and the outside was just a bonus. I joined RevFit as a general member in June of 2016. I started working in the daycare and decided to shift my goals and joined Bootcamp with Crystal in October of that same year. I hit my goal of losing 60 pounds in August of 2017. I had no idea what was ahead of me after I hit goal. I became a Spin Instructor and not long after I became a Trainer. Not only do I get get the privilege of telling my story, I get to help give others the opportunity to tell theirs. ...And remember, God uses the Broken.

After going through numerous health challenges that hindered me from being productive as a mother, coach, and all-around person, I decided to join RevFit gym in August 2017. Not only did starting Bootcamp and embracing a healthy lifestyle heal me physically, but it also tapped in to making me stronger mentally...
I had the ability and strength to be more beneficial to my family, to my friends and to my boys on the team. In November, I began training to be a Spin instructor, and the rest has been a whirlwind since. Crystal and I not only train women in Bootcamp, but we also train our basketball players who have successfully won District Championships, reached the Top 28, and attained numerous individual accolades as well. My joy and love come from having the ability to share with others the gift that was given to me when joining the gym – a nutritious lifestyle that offered me peace and happiness. Being a trainer is not just a job for me, but it is a valuable “present” that I wish to share everyday with others.
