This has been a life changing process for me.
I dropped 60 pounds of body fat. My body fat percentage has dropped from 30% to 13.5%. I have well reached my goal and even exceeded it.
Anyone considering losing weight should really see these guys. Along with the owner, Kelly Huggins, I have been trained by the entire staff. They push me, where I might have already stopped. For them, it's not just about the weight lifting, but they help you develop a cardiovascular plan and provide you with the information you need to make wise food choices.
The Fitness Together staff empowers you with knowledge and inspiration. Looking around I saw the other options. This option was the best for me, because it works. It will be the best thing you have ever done for yourself too.
This is a lengthy video (~25 minutes), however, if you watch it in its entirety you will learn something (and you may think it's even entertaining).
It's an interview with one of our clients, Howard Maziar, M.D. Howard is a practicing psychiatrist of over 35 years. Though I plan to do more videos like this one, I thought Howard would be a great start as he is our Client of the Month for January.
Conversely, Howard also provides sound advice as a practicing professional in mental health. Watch what he says about the importance of understanding the mind, body, and soul connection. Of course, he'll tell you all why he loves FT too!
In July of 2011, after two kids and way too many pounds, I decided it was time to get back on track with my health. I researched personal trainers in the Atlanta area. I knew I wanted a more personal approach to working out then going to a "big box" gym and I wanted something that focused on all aspects of fitness (nutrition, weight training, cardio, etc.). I came across Fitness Together North Buckhead's web site during my search and decided to call them up. After speaking with Kelly, the owner, I immediately felt a connection and scheduled a consultation and signed up immediately after that.
The trainers are extraordinarily knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and nutrition. They coach and train based on tried and true fitness principles--you will find no gimmicks here. Not to mention that the atmosphere and camaraderie in the studio is awesome...the trainers continually push and motivate you to go further, all in a positive manner. With a12% reduction in body fat and 75+ pounds lost so far, I am so glad I made that initial call to Kelly.
I can't say enough good things about this fitness studio!
“At first, I didn’t expect to reach certain goals. Surprisingly, you (Kelly) told me I could go further. Now, I have exceeded many goals and know that any future goals are attainable. Besides physical changes, my headaches are under control, I sleep better, and I feel much stronger. So far, I have lost more than 5 inches off my waist and hips. Overall, I have lost more than 17 inches and have lost 35 pounds of fat. It has taken me awhile, but much of what I have learned at Fitness Together has moved from being "something that I had to do," to something that has become part of my lifestyle. I appreciate the positive one-on-one support and motivation I received.”
"I had hit a significant plateau for six months after losing the initial 40 lbs on my own. The personal trainers at Fitness Together helped brake 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."
I actually discovered FT through a Groupon. I had never bought a Groupon before but had always wanted to work with a personal trainer and it was such a great opportunity. I’m glad I went for it!
I like working with a trainer one-on-one in a more private setting as opposed to in a crowded gym. Also, I’ve enjoyed learning new exercises to keep my fitness routine interesting and challenging.
I’ve lost weight and increased muscle. I came to Fitness Together shortly after having my second child and needed help losing the baby weight and regaining muscle tone. I only had a few pounds I wanted to lose, but I met my goal. As a matter of fact, I was just commenting on how I haven't been this shape since I got married 6 years ago! FT gave me the push I needed! Now, my husband is at FT! He is already getting great results!

At 76 years of age, Harry Maziar is proof you can start a fitness program at any point of life. I met Harry at a local barber shop (Cuts Inc.) a few months ago. While I was there we had a great conversation. What impressed me most about Harry is that he is young at heart. He stays busy running car dealerships (South Towne Hyndai) and being an outstanding grandfather. In addition to having Harry, his grandson Josh Phillipson, and his daughter Lisa Phillipson are now with us.

"Hello, my name is Tiffany. I reside in the Brookhaven community, therefore, Fitness Together North Buckhead in Atlanta, GA is very convenient to me.
Besides the convenience, I love the personal attention. I’ve trained with other personal trainers in the past only to realize that I wasn’t using proper form. I also like that there are no distractions and no crowds to deal with – it makes for a more pleasurable experience. I look forward to my weekly appointments! I also like the rotation of the Personal Trainers – that way things are always changing and the clients stay motivated as well!
In addition to toning and strengthening my body, I have more energy through-out the day. I am more alert at work and also less stressed.
I also received nutrition coaching through their Nutrition Together program. Since I implemented the program, I have lost even more inches and unwanted fat pounds. I highly recommend the personal fitness training services at Fitness Together North Buckhead."
"So you wanna workout. But you pretty much hate the gym because there is always someone "looking" at you and judging your every move. Hey, just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.
The solution - talk to Kelly at Fitness Together. I've been going to this place for about 8 months now and absolutely love it. I've had one-on-one training in a gym setting before, but never in a private studio. It's really nice to have the space all to yourself. The workouts last about an hour, but you can shower and change at the studio, so it is really easy to fit in during a hectic day.
The trainers - top notch. Kelly and his team aren't some recent college graduates whose hobby is fitness and needed a job. These guys (and gal) have gone through extensive training and can talk you to death about the science behind the fitness... In short, they really know what they are talking about. In addition to being knowledgeable, they are very personable. Sorry, you aren't going to get a Gillian Michaels type yelling at you and jumping on your back while you jump into a tire. But you will get someone who actually cares about your progress and will give you as much as you can (and should) handle. Don't get me wrong. The workouts are challenging, but not in a dangerous-why-am-I-hauling-300lbs way..."
"I wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased I am with my total experience at Fitness Together. I've tried getting in shape off and on through the years, but it keeps getting harder and harder as I get older and older. Luckily I've gotten a little wiser and realized I needed some help to keep going. At FT you have lived up to your commitments and have created a comfortable setting for one to one training and provided the accountability I needed, not to mention the awesome trainers. Knowledgeable trainers and the emphasis on total fitness has really helped me achieve by goals."
Thank you so much for all the very practical tips at our shopping night at Publix. The small group setting allowed me to feel comfortable asking questions and I’m much less intimated by “looking at labels” and understanding what to look for. With 3 young children, my husband and I are trying to be better role models around healthy eating habits. Having children yourself, I have appreciated your suggestions around packing breakfast and lunch. The mini Cliff bars were a big hit and no one has even noticed the OJ is watered down! This class was a great add-on benefit of an already great FT experience!
"Though I stayed active, after I left FT I started gaining weight and my strength training program became stale. Because I am getting ready to climb Mount Teton in Wyoming, I knew that it was time to get started again. What I like about FT is that they take account for my goals. Since I have started in the latter part of May, I have lost 10 pounds of fat. This actually exceeds how I did the first time. In part this is because of the new Nutrition Together program that has held me accountable to my eating habits. I have a great experience with each visit and the entire staff is great!"

"I really enjoy going to Fitness Together North Buckhead (Atlanta,GA), because of the great staff and environment. The personal training there is unmatched by anyone else. They are personable and they push me just hard enough, not to the point of killing me. When I started in April, I was at 23% body fat and now I am 16%. I dropped 11 pounds of fat and the shape of my body has improved a lot. I can now wear more form fitting clothes that show off my muscles."
"At Fitness Together North Buckhead, I am assured that I am neither overdoing it, or "underdoing" it. Everything is done one-on-one and the focus is on me. Since January, I have lost 3 inches off my waist and decreased 6% in body fat. I know that Fitness Together is the right fit for me and I look forward to continued results! These are the best Personal Trainers in Atlanta, GA!"

"As a recent mom, my focus was to lose baby weight. I was excited to get back in shape and have energy again!!! Fitness Together was the perfect place to improve strength, flexibilty, and that energy I was dying for again. Weight loss happened, but more importantly all around wellness and a strong sense of weight training and resistance training. The trainers Katie and Dennis are top notch and cater to your goals. Highly recommend to anyone looking to feel good, lose weight, gain strenth, and improve flexibilty!"
"I thought I knew how to eat healthy and exercise but my body weight certainly was not reflecting this. I knew I needed help but wasn’t sure where to turn until I saw the postcard from Fitness Together in the mail box. I called to see if they could help me and I had an appointment the next day. With a goal weight loss of 50 lbs I decided to do everything they told me to do because if I didn’t lose the weight then I could say “This program doesn’t work”. But much to my surprise, it did work and I lost 70 lbs in 7 months. My trainers motivated me to the point of actually being excited about working out. Not only did they teach me how to lift weights but they also taught me how to eat right. I wrote in my food journal every morsel I put into my mouth and without criticism they kept me on the right path of a healthy lifestyle. They took the guess work out of it.
That was 2 years ago and yes…I have kept the weight off. I continue to train at Fitness Together because I enjoy the workouts and the people that work there. They not only help to keep me motivated but the knowledge I’ve gained from the trainers at Fitness Together is invaluable and will stay with me for the rest of my life."
"I knew I needed the help of a trainer. But in a city like Atlanta where trainers are as abundant as places to eat, finding the right trainer was important. The reason that Fitness Together was and remains the right choice for me is the familial environment, the quality of the trainers that Kelly employs and the commitment of the trainers to help me achieve my goals.
The trainers are concerned about the quality and not the quantity of the weight I lift. They know exactly when to push me harder and when to jump in and assist, all the while keeping the emphasis on form - knees bent, back straight, breathing in and breathing out. My commitment to see results and the discipline to stick with the program has produced phenomenal results. I have lost 18 pounds, decreased 10% body fat, and 7 inches off my waist.
So if you're mid section is getting a bit flabby too or you'd like to build strength, don't let another day go by without considering getting a personal trainer and choosing Fitness Together to help you achieve the results you want."
"It is friendly, close to my home and a place for me to go workout. I need a professional to help me because of some health issues. I also feel challenged and work at a pace that I can handle. The trainers are all very encouraging and very knowledgeable about what I should do to improve my strength, but not hurt myself. I really like the 1 on 1 idea and I feel more comfortable in that setting.
I am firmer, have more energy, better posture, and I know I am stronger. At my age I know the workout is good for my bones. I have hated to exercise, but look forward to coming in 3 times a week and after 9 months, I would really miss this activity in my life if I had to stop. It is becoming a routine (a habit)."
"I really enjoy the one-on-one concept and personal attention that you get at Fitness Together. This format ensures me that I am not going to do something that can potentially hurt me. As a dentist, the upper back and neck strength I developed has been crucial to my career. Of course, I have received other benefits such as increase muscle tone and improved overall vitality. If you're looking to fit, then I highly recommend Fitness Together."
"I have been going to Fitness Together since January 2009. To give you a little history about myself, I was going to a trainer 10 years ago and knew the benefits of being on a regular exercise program. After I quit, I gained 25 lbs and had no energy. I had developed high blood pressure, high cholesterol, had become pre-diabetic, and was on my way to being a medical catastrophe waiting to happen.
Since I have been going to FT, the results have been great! I have dropped in pant size and my stamina is greater. My health issues haven been brought into the guidleines of a healthy 67 year old male.
My wife and I both have Fitness Together to thank. They are friendly, encouraging, and most of all care about us and the results we need to achieve. Thanks again to Kelly, Katie, dennis, and Jim."
