Diamond Head

Cindy & Mike at the Top!

Cindy & Mike C.

Fitness and Health are not only for the individual but for Family and Friends!
We would like to not only recognize but honor Cindy and Mike Curran, dedicated and valued clients here at FT Grand Haven.

Recently on a Mona Shores High School Band Trip to Hawaii, Mike, Cindy, and their sons Patrick and Sam (also clients) climbed to the top of Diamond Head, a famous volcanic crater, located on the South-east Coast of O'ahu at the end of Waikiki overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Diamond Head is a crater that has been extinct for 150,000 years. The crater is 3,520 feet in diameter with a 760-foot summit.

With both Mike and Cindy's dedication to not only their own health but that of their family's, we were very proud to receive a phone call full of excitement and achievement from Cindy who was calling from the top of the summit telling us of the family's accomplishment.

Curran Family we are proud to call you FT Grand Haven Clients, and you embody everything we are here to teach and try to represent day in and day out.

Continued Success and Good Health!

Brock Carlston

Athletic Success Story

"Well, FT helped me take my game to the next level! By training with the outstanding trainers I have been able to put on 20+ pounds of muscle. I have also brought my cardiovascular endurance to the next level. Plain and Simple, if you want to go to Fitness Together and get results with professional supervision, Grand Haven is the place for you, or you can just go to a gym do a couple lifts here and there and just be average, your call! FT is great for results; however, the friendship i have built with all the trainers is definitely just as important!"

Brock played high school hockey for three years with the Mona Shore Sailors (left) while training diligently at Fitness Together Grand Haven with Ron Clark.

Afterward, he began to play for the Cedar Rapids Rough Riders in the USHL for two seasons.

For the last two seasons he has been with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs out of Alaska in the NAHL (right), where he played a huge role in helping the Ice Dogs claim the USA Hockey Junior A Tier II National Championship early this May (center).



Barb S.

Fitness Together Client and Active Professional

Fitness Together has changed my outlook on life.  After feeling like losing weight and getting in shape was an unattainable goal, I called Fitness Together.  It was my last ditch effort.  I’ve been on every diet known to man, but never knew how to workout correctly.  The personal trainers with whom I work at Fitness Together are very knowledgeable and they take the time to explain every exercise.  To my surprise and delight, I lost a pant size after only 2 weeks and my double chin went away after 4 weeks.  In only 5 weeks, I’ve lost 13 pounds!  I love the new lease on life that Fitness Together has given me!



Rachel T.

Fitness Together Client and Business Woman

I had hit a significant plateau for six months after losing the initial 40 lbs on my own. Fitness Together broke that plateau and it really started coming off quickly! I am down 16 dress sizes. I am most proud to carry my "before" pictures (I never am without them) to encourage others and show people it can be done.




Dear Ron & Jen,

I wanted to thank you and your staff for helping me to achieve what I was not able to do on my own; to get this body of mine whipped back into shape. I have been training with Jen and Kyle for ten months and I am ecstatic and truly amazed with the results! I have more energy than most 20 year olds. You have made me believe in Fitness Together's mantra of 1 Client, 1 Trainer, 1 Goal. Keep up the good work! See ya next week!
