Most impressed with: The cross-training aspect of her personal program
It didn’t take long for Anita to start feeling – and seeing – the difference.
“The energy boost I got from my routine was almost immediate. I felt better, looked better. . .my clothes fit better. . .I’ve already done more than I thought I was capable of on my own.”
That’s what we’re here for, Anita. When you succeed, we succeed.

“As a busy working mother I have had a lot of stops and starts with trying to workout consistently and get in shape. And, during the times I did work out, I knew I never really pushed myself very hard. In the end, it always seemed to be that everything and everyone else came before my own well being.
The fitness trainers are exactly what I needed: motivation, accountability, supportive and talented trainers and challenging EFFICIENT workouts.
I would recommend them to anyone who is ready to commit to achieving their fitness goals. I am convinced that their approach is the only way I can reach my personal fitness goals. I only regret not doing it sooner”.

“I would have to say all good.
I knew I really needed to get into a regular exercise program to improve quality of life as I age. In the beginning, I rated working out at about 2-3 on a scale of 1-10. . .now I would probably rate it about 7-8 (you really didn’t think I would going to say 10 did you?)
My primary reason for starting was concern about bone density. A little over 2 years ago, I tested as having low bone density over my entire body. . .even lower on lower body than upper body. The doctor put me on Actenol and calcium plus vitamin D, but everything I read suggested that I also needed to add weight bearing exercise. I joined because I knew from experience that I wouldn’t stick to it on my own. Eighteen months later, I was tested again. My upper body bone density had moved back into the normal range and the lower body had greatly improved. If I improve as much on next test, I’ll be able to drop the Actenol.
I’ve also seen other benefits. . .I have better flexibility and strength. . .as I would have expected. What I wasn’t expecting was that I sleep better and seem to have a great deal less pain from arthritis.
Weight is still a problem. . .I really enjoy eating. I have been fairly successful in the last couple of months, but only time will tell if I will continue to lose and then maintain.
I believe the best thing is the trainers…everyone I’ve worked with is great. They seem to really care about my success and keep me working to improve my diet by suggesting reading materials to reinforce their suggestions.
Thanks to all of you. You have created a very pleasant place.”

“Me, work out . . .Never! I never thought I’d be working out but that all changed when I was given the opportunity of a lifetime. I was one of three ladies selected for an extreme makeover. We were given a list of luxuries but the one that turned out to be the best part was the free sessions!! I didn’t think that at first, I thought I’d just get through them and be done with it. Turned out that was the best part of the entire package I received. I don’t even call them work outs – they are now known as my “fun-outs”. You’ve put that spark in me to help me achieve the goals I set. I feel 20 years younger with the amount of energy and flexibility I have now. I will never say never again. Thank You!”

“I originally started to workout for my outward apperances, but what I found out is that working out has become much more essential to my sense of well being. Working with the trainers has made me a more confident personal and I feel that the fitness program has improved my attitude towards life and work. I have more energy and sleep better, which benefits everything I do.”
“Over the last two years, I had become overweight and unfit due to a combination of working and going to school full time, poor diet, and inconsistent exercise. I did not have the time or motivation to join a gym, nor did I want to work out in front of other people. I knew I had to do something to improve my health but I just wasn’t ready yet. After a few more months of struggling with my weight gain and lack of motivation, I decided it was time to commit to my health. I just got engaged and wanted to look fabulous in my wedding dress. Most importantly, I wanted to live a long and healthy life with my amazing husband.
I knew it was time to do something about the 40 extra pounds I was carrying around. During my sessions, I was impressed with the enthusiasm of my trainers and their immediate dedication to helping me reach my goals. In addition, the friendly staff and clients helped keep the environment free of intimidation unlike other fitness programs I’ve tried!”
“You’ve been a remarkable and rewarding endeavor in my life. Once I started I’ve been going strong ever since. I cannot imagine my life without guidance from my trainers. Over the last 2 ï¿½ years I have decreased my cholesterol, lost 23 inches, dropped two sizes and feel more energetic and accomplished in my health and life.
Working with the fitness trainers on specific programs for my goals and participating in extra cardio training have been the main reasons for my success. Last year I ran my first 5K and this year they are helping me train for my first half marathon. I will also partake in the Danskin sprint triathlon. It is very exciting to have these two new challenges and I now know I can achieve these goals.”

“I’m not new to gyms and fitness programs. For fifteen years I’ve been a member to various fitness centers.
Nothing would keep me motivated and focused while showing real results – until I found your amazing fitness trainers.
The staff is very supportive – I feel like I’ve always got a workout buddy. My initial motivation to join was to lose weight. I’m thrilled to report I’ve lost fifteen pounds and my favorite clothes are a smooth fit! I have to say though, the most surprising and wonderful thing isn’t what I’ve lost, but what I’ve gained. Before working out, I didn’t know what it felt like to be strong. I didn’t know what it felt like to be faced with a physical challenge and think “no problem – I’ve got it”. What a freedom!
Thanks to you, I’m a new woman. I did the work, but you offered the tools.”
