It is that time of year again…

If you do not want to be part of the 92% of New Year’s Resolutions that fail…

If you think “you are too out of shape” to join a gym…

If you think you have too many injuries and limitations to be able to safely join a gym and workout…

If you are tired of investing in the wrong things…

If you understand that the answer isn’t jogging on a treadmill and all of the other easy things we wish worked or thinking you have to run yourself into the ground and puke every workout is the solution is actually unsafe and counter productive.

We are exactly the place for you.

So what time of year is it? It is when…

The ONLY fitness facility in Erie…

Built specifically for you, your abilities, your goals and everything in between that  consistently gets extraordinary, tangible major life transformations…

Presents to you, the New Year New You 8 Week Fat Loss Challenge.


“New Year’s Resolutions” will shortly be falling off… but rather than give up we embrace the life changing time of year where Twoguns Training Systems runs the now fifth annual, New Year New You.

Once a year we “kick off the New Year” with our often imitated but never replicated New Year New You – 8 Week Fat Loss Challenge where teams of 3 participate to see who loses the most combined PERCENTAGE of pounds of fat lost, pounds of muscle gained and inches lost to win a $1000+* Grand Prize.

Quick aside to tackle the most popular question right off the bat. Everyone starts from an equal playing field. I emphasized “percentage” above because it means that it is based off of where you start. So a 200 pound person essentially has to lose double what a 100 pound person has to lose for it to be equal percentage wise so no starting weight has neither an advantage or disadvantage…


MTM Winners 2

The first year, Keri, Hope and Brandy combined to lose 44.5 pounds, 10% bodyfat, 8.5 inches off their waists and 7 inches off their hips and 2 inches off their arms and take down the $1000 Grand Prize.

2014 NYNY Winners

Three years ago, Courtney, Steve and Mary combined to lose 42 pounds, 12% bodyfat, 10.5 inches of their waists, 6 inches off the hips, and 1.5 inches off their arms and take down the $1000 Grand Prize.


Two years ago, Mandi, Carla and Mary T combined to lose 42 pounds, 14% bodyfat and well over 50 inches combined to take down the grand prize.

What are the details?

2016 New Year New You Application To Apply

– Challenge starts on January 30th and runs until March 27th (8 weeks).

– Regardless of which entry fee or package level you sign-up for, you will have eligibility for the $1000 grand prize. (There are three memberships options. More details below)

– Three (3) people per team; must include at least one (1) non-member/client of Twoguns Training Systems. A team may consist of three (3) non-members. Having a team is by no means required to join. If you don’t have three (3) you will be placed on a team.

– The beginning weigh-in must be between January 28th and February 1st (no weigh-ins before January 28th and none after February 1st); and the final weigh-in must be done between March 25th and March 28th (no final weigh-ins after March 28th).

– Participants are recommended to complete minimum three (3) to four (4) workouts per week during the contest. A combination of strength training, metabolic and group personal training classes are recommended to achieve maximum results though you are not limited to four (4) per week.

– *A minimum of fifteen (15) teams must participate in order for the $1000 grand prize. If less participate then the challenge will still be held but with a lower grand prize. If more, than potentially more.

– Again, the winning team is calculated by pounds of fat lost, pounds of muscle gained and number of inches lost. A percentage system is used so that someone who is 250 pounds and loses 20 pounds of fat and someone who is 125 pounds and loses 10 pounds of fat, receive the same amount of points so everyone is on a level playing field.

Included is…

– 2 Month Membership at Twoguns Training Systems.

– Before and after measurements.

– Full nutrition program included for the 8 weeks. As well as nutrition journal reviews each week.

– Weekly accountability meeting to keep you on track exclusively for participants. Including a private Facebook group for the challenge.

– A Habits coaching component (Brand New)

– And some more to be announced fun…

These could be you…

Gen B&A

Not making a decision is in itself making a decision. And actively making a decision that avoids getting your life the exact way you want it, is a horrible decision to make. Commit to making a change and become more confident and better able to anything life throws your way. People who are legitimately strong (in every sense) get through life more effectively and more enjoyable

Now this is important the cost is $100 specifically to participate in the challenge, In Addition To two months of whichever membership option is best for you. We aren’t cheap but we aren’t the most expensive by any means either but we are undoubtedly and without question the best in the area and you WILL transform your life if you put in the dedication.

We have three main membership options and since what we do is so individualized, I cant tell you which option(s) are best for you or which arent for you without first seeing specifically how you move in the most thorough fitness assessment in northwest Pennsylvania because if you aren’t assessing you’re guessing and we don’t guarantee results by guessing.

To schedule a strategy session to see what the best fit is, fill out the application below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

I always tell clients and prospective clients that in 5 or 10 years, other competitors in the area will have caught up to our equipment, how to more effectively run fat loss programming, results etc and while we do it best now, that isn’t what I want to be what completely differentiates us from everyone else.

What truly makes us different is the immersive and supportive community we’ve built based around support and camaraderie and truly caring about you and your results. You aren’t a client here, you are a family. Not just to me, other owners or our coaches but to our amazing community of other clients who want to succeed and see you succeed. That is ultimate how we are different.

We are a team in every sense of the word. And when everything we do has be mimicked and copied, our culture of serious fitness and not so serious humans in a dedicated, truly judgment free environment to get you to your goals, will always differentiate us and never be able to be copied. I look forward to changing your life.

What can be done in 8 weeks?

Motiv - Coach

That quote is an important part of our core values at Twoguns Training Systems. We intentionally call our team/staff coach or fitness professional because we are not “personal trainers”. Personal Trainer is what is the average in the industry. Punch the clock, doing it on the side while you “find a real job” and lacking education and a genuine skill set to help people. That is exactly NOT who we are and what we do.

“We Change Lives” is something we take very seriously.

If this is your first experience with us, please check out our About Page as well as our What Do We Do Here page.

Netty Full B&A

That is Annette “Netty” Mitchell and this is a quote from her guest blog she wrote for us on her story and journey with us…

“I turned 55 years old this week. I look back and wonder why certain things have happened and/or how certain people have come into my life.

Things I know: I’m thankful of my friendship with Bridget which lead me to Dan and Twoguns Training Systems. I am thankful that Dan thrives on education and brings the best possible there is to Twoguns and that it is never boring there.

I am thankful for Dan and all the coaches and the assistance and fun they provide. I am thankful for all the new friends I have made. I am thankful for the positive experience it has made in my life and the new doors it has opened for me.

I can see possibilities now, versus only limits before. I am thankful I have gone down several sizes and now have a waist! My triglycerides have gone down to 82 in the last screening and my menopause symptoms are all but gone. I would have never imagined that in December of 2014.

I am thankful for the safe, non-judgmental space that Twoguns provides where unicorns do exist. Working out there always make a good day better and a bad day tolerable. I am very thankful for the new life I have and of my Twoguns experience!”

“So when Danny asked me to write this blog, I questioned him because I am not the typical “weight loss” story as I didn’t have “as much” weight initially to lose as a lot of other success stories, but I am extremely proud to say that what I gained is way more important to me than what I lost.

I have gained a much better posture, I have toned muscles where I didn’t think was possible, and yes I have dropped pant sizes, but most importantly, I have gained a second family, constant support and motivation, and a completely new outlook on life. A true “third place”. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone at Twoguns for everything you have done for me and alongside me in the past year!”

“This was a different atmosphere than some other gyms I had been to where I heard people talking about how someone “like me” should be in a special class and people get looked down on but at Twoguns I could do what I could where it was appropriate and also do exercises that would build me up to the “normal” exercises when appropriate. It was all about you getting better compared to your former self, not someone else. Weight and age have never been an issue from day one.”
