Fitness Together is second to none. Over the past few years of working out with FT, they have not only made me stronger physically but mentally as well. They keep me on track, they push my limits (but never to the point of overkill) and they believe in what I can do even when I don't believe in myself at times. In short, the staff at FT have made me healthier and even though there are days that I am not sure I feel like working out as I am always glad I did as I walk out the door and start my day.

54 and stronger than ever!!!
I can't say enough about FT! I'm a 54 year old woman who needed to lose weight (notice I said "needed") in order to look and feel better and be healthy. I really liked the idea of working out one-on-one with my own trainer in a private studio as opposed to being in a large class, or even with a personal trainer in the middle of a big gym. And at FT, there is nutritional support as well. You get to use a great online tool with exceptional personal attention to tweaking your diet so that you eat optimally for weight loss and good nutrition (they don't sell special food or vitamins). But obviously the biggest thing here would be the trainers, and believe me, they really know their stuff. They are by your side for the entire session, training and educating you for correct form, and providing constantly changing exercises that tone your entire body the right (and most effective) way. To me, this is priceless and something that most of us can't get from a book or from watching a video. I've lost over 50 lbs and am more toned and stronger than I was in my twenties - and I thoroughly enjoy the compliments and other positive feedback I've been getting. I never thought I would ever wear something sleeveless again - and now I can't wait for summer and tank tops! And one last thing - I've discovered my inner athlete! Who knew I'd be kayaking, hiking mountains, or running 5Ks with all the other active and fit people out there?! FT is truly one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. I will never go back to my old ways because being (and looking) fit is way too much fun!
40 LB. WEIGHT LOSS. Gained energy and confidence.
I started going to Fitness together in August of 2010. I won a trial session at a fundraiser for the Burlington Facility. Little did I know, I not only won 3 free sessions but won my healthy life back. I have never been a workout person but have always been active. I was fit most of my life. I continue to get up and go but life, 2 kids and a busy job were my "Excuse to pack on a few pounds" I was excited to get started at the gym. However, I was very concerned with lifting weights and doing a one on one training session. I worried my lack of experience would make me feel uncomfortable and look foolish. Just the opposite happened. I started my first session by saying "I have no idea what I'm doing" The sincere response I got from my new trainer was something on the lines of "It's ok because we do know what we are doing". That was just what I needed to hear. A bad back and lack of experience did not hold me back. I've lost 25 pounds and Like Brendan (The owner and one of my trainers) says it is finding your path to a healthier you. It's been a Journey. I'm still enjoying it every week. I am close to my goal weight and can not imagine going back to the way I was just 9 months ago. People have commented on my new looks and I know I look better because I feel better inside and out. I say if you are thinking about it make the call.
Five months ago I had an important decision to make. I was recuperating after a serious illness, feeling sorry for myself and completely unmotivated in life. Because of my illness I was put on multiple medications for my heart, my joints, and my blood. I had gone from never taking any medications to taking 6-8 in a matter of 30 days. What was most frustrating and difficult for me was to remember that at one point, in my adult life, I was a very active person who enjoyed playing sports and other outdoor activities. After almost a year of recuperation I found myself at the highest weight of my life, on two different blood pressure medications, and being told by my doctors that I probably have Type II diabetes and they were considering starting another medication. This was my turning point. I could continue down the path of a sedentary life, poor eating habits and getting quite good at self-pity, or I could take my life back and realize that while my illness is in the back of my mind, I cannot let it rule my decisions and I needed to find the person I was not so long ago. As luck would have it, my wife ran into someone, Dave “Nordie” Norden, who we knew quite well and had not seen for quite a while told her about Fitness Together Burlington, he said it changed his life, most importantly he said it changed his family’s life. She was sold before we even went to meet Brendan – the owner. After meeting with Brendan and hearing about the program, and getting a sense of his knowledge and enthusiasm, we knew that this was the gym for us. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made. I have belonged to many gyms in the past, but I have never had a personal trainer with me every step of the way showing me exactly how to do each exercise, and explaining to me why I am doing it. The majority of my workouts have been with trainers. I can’t say enough good things about them. Right from the beginning, they got to know me, what my goals and limitations were. Each workout was customized to me and aimed toward helping me to meet my personal and overall health goals. The trainers are always upbeat, and they really make the workouts something that I look forward to. Personally, the workouts I have had at FT-Burlington have been the most challenging workouts I have ever had. I know that I wouldn’t have pushed myself this hard if I were working out alone in a regular gym. Another area that sets Fitness Together apart from other gym memberships is the nutrition component. I have been using the Vitabot on-line nutrition tool that is offered. This has been a great way for me to learn how to eat a balanced diet and hold myself accountable. The trainers consistently talk to me about nutrition and are happy to answer any nutrition questions I might have. I am happy to say, after 5 months going to Fitness Together Burlington, I have lost over 60 lbs. and 42 total inches. What is most important to me however is, as of this month, I am off all medications and my blood pressure is normal. I feel so much better about myself, and I look forward to continuing down the path of an active and healthy lifestyle. Brendan and his entire Fitness Together Burlington staff are amazing people, and I can’t thank them enough for helping me to get my life back.
