Since I began working out at Fitness Together in Andover, i have lost over 20lbs, gained strength and improved my flexibility.* I feel much better inside and out, having gone from a size 38-40 to a 33-34!*

The staff at FT is enthusastic and knowledgable, making you want to go your sessions which gets you results, you don't see that at a gym.

I have more energy and have gained more strength and flexibility, which I need in my work. I feel good about myself, especially when I go clothes shopping and look in the mirror.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you work out at Fitness Together in Andover, especially if your lifestyle is a busy one, If you find yourself saying " I don't have the time to workout", check out FT. They will create a program for you that is effective without taking up hours and hours of your time.

Having battled my weight for all my life and having gone up and down (mostly up!) for quite some time, i reached a point where I knew I had to make a change. Fitness Together was the change I needed.

Gym memberships in the past did not work for me for two reasons. First, I would always make some excuse why I could not go regularly. Life got in the way:I had too much to do,I was too tired after a busy day at work or the kids needed me for some reason. Secondly, I had some physical problems, (bad knees and lower back) and there were limitations on what I could do well, if at all.

It has been just over five months and I have lost approximately 37 pounds and 26 inches.* I have never been so motivated to do something for me. I still have a ways to go, but I am loving the results so far. As with any program, it is what you make of it, but Fitness Together and the great trainers are a wonderful support team and will help you work towards your goal, whether it be weight loss, building muscle mass or overall toning.

I am grateful to the wonderful people at Fitness Together for their support in helping me reach my goals.

Tracy Simpson

Tracy first came to Fitness Together when she realized the baby weight she’d put on three years prior wasn’t going to come off without some major changes to her lifestyle. Tracy committed to her training and nutrition program and saw greater results than she ever imagined. “My trainers are amazing. They are the primary reason why I come here.” Since starting at FT Tracy has lost 50 lbs. and went from a size 14 to a size 2*. She also increased strength and flexibility and has competed in the incredibly demanding Tough Mudder challenge. Trainer Tom Lavoie says, “She really has kicked up her strength in a big way. She’s continuing to grow, as far as her strength, flexibility, and improving her overall health.”

“After YEARS of exercising with no significant weight loss, my wife gave me the best gift of my life, Personal Training at Fitness Together Andover. I’ve been training at FT for over five months and have accomplished so much. I have noticed significant weight loss (over 30lbs), strength gains, an increase in stamina and many inches lost (down 4 pant sizes and 1 full shirt size)!*

I would absolutely recommend FT Andover to family and friends! Since it’s personalized, the workouts target exactly what’s needed and the trainers definitely know what they’re doing.

The best part of coming to Fitness Together is the feeling of a hard, strong workout and knowing that I’m getting results. I’m less tired, more focused, healthier and in an all-around better mood.”

Hi. I’m Sue. When I walked into Fitness Together in Andover I could hardly pick myself up off the floor, let alone do a push up! After working with the staff and my trainers here my stamina went up and my weight went down! I am proud to say that after a lot of hard work on all our parts my strength is great, and I can not only get up off the floor but I can do those push ups! Thank you to Amy and Joe and especially to my trainers Patrick and Lizzie! Your knowledge and encouragement led me to the stage I’m at today! Thank you all!

Client of FT Andover

Joining Andover FT came after years of lethargic office work and unsuccessful surgery for a lower spine problem. I needed expert help which Jay and the rest of the Andover FT team have more than delivered.

After only four months of working together, not only is the effect of my spinal problem being minimized, but I have lost weight and feel in the best shape of my life*. More importantly, as a result of the training so expertly designed by Jay and his team, I have regained a confidence to do things that I would have previously not have attempted; bringing a better quality of life not only for myself but for my wife and our children.

Working with Andover FT is always fun and exciting, Jay constantly changing the program design not only to build on the gains I am making but to keep the training fresh and interesting. It is obvious that Jay and the team are committed to helping me get the most of training during the sessions also spend a lot of time outside of the sessions redesigning the program to meet my specific needs.

I am truly grateful that I joined FT and for the dedication of the FT team helping me exceed my goals. Working with FT is providing me with a sense of accomplishment that is inspiring me to seek more general life style changes for a healthier future.

Great place! I am working with Heather there now, and I think the whole experience is DEFINITELY well worth it. Fitness Together gives me personally customized workouts and assessments to fit my goals. I like that you work with an individual lead trainer, but there's also a sense of community within the studio to make sure all clients get what they need. Heather makes sure she takes all my fitness goals into consideration so she can tailor my workouts to helping me achieve them.

The place looks fantastic: when you come in, there's a nice cardio area complete with TV to keep you entertained while you're on the treadmill, bike, or elliptical, and there are two fully equipped private training suites. If you are the only client in during your time slot, your trainer will even let you pick the music station!

Fitness Together also does excellent nutrition counseling.

DO IT NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back in June of this year a friend of mine introduced me to the folks who run and own “Fitness Together” in Andover.. What a wonderful piece of luck that was for me.

I was out of shape and very much in need of some professional guidance in establishing an exercise program that would get me back in shape and do some work to get my heart working and to get my body in shape..

The Team at “FT” took over and I am now working out with their guidance three days a week. I am stronger—I have more knowledge about a good diet program – and I am hitting the golf ball longer than when I started.*

This is a wonderful team—they are caring and very professional in all they will do to help you get back in shape. The facility has all of the latest equipment and every attending client gets his or her “own program” with targets established for each individual.

If you want to get back in shape, if you want to live longer, if you want your clothes to fit better* ---- call 978- 623-8181.

The staff are trained professionals and beside that they are very warm and friendly people.. No age limit on the people you will meet at “FT”. I truly appreciate what they are doing to get this 84 year old body back in shape….

Get with it—you will truly benefit..

When it came to looking at working with a personal trainer, I tried to look at the overall cost/benefit. I was facing borderline high blood pressure and the start of sleep apnea. Did I want to pay for personalized fitness training or for increasing medical co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance? It was an easy decision to make when I looked at the big picture with a more long term focus. An investment in myself, instead of a payment for an ongoing treatment.

Instead of accepting my current medical situation, I decided to work to turn it around. Since working with the trainers at Fitness Together these past months, I no longer have any symptoms of sleep apnea and my blood pressure is 112/70!* What is so different with personalized training is that it changes to accommodate my increasing capabilities and pushes me as hard as I need to be pushed. I know that I could not have known myself what levels were appropriate for me, or how to keep the workouts challenging and ever changing. When I take the time to work out, I want to make the most of my time and investment, and I know that at Fitness Together I will continue to get the right mix.

Fitness Together has been an excellent, life changing investment for me. Last spring, as a stay at home mom with a baby and a toddler, I felt that I had no energy. I knew that with two babies in less than two years, my body had been through a lot. I also knew that, if I was honest with myself, I was overweight for years before that as well. I knew a woman from the Mother Connection who had done the extreme makeover though Fitness Together and she looked amazing. I asked her about her experience, and very hesitantly, called from more information. My initial conversations with Steve Swanson, one of the owners, convinced me that this was the best thing I could do for myself.

The trainers make the workouts challenging and also enjoyable. Steve spent time going over my nutrition and encouraging me to improve my cardio. Over the summer, I felt my strength and endurance increasing. I actually had the energy I wanted to have to make it through the day without feeling exhausted by my children. Due to an injury, I had to take a break last fall. However using what I had learned about nutrition, I was able to keep off all the weight I had lost. I started back again in January.

I feel better now than I can remember feeling in many years. I have energy and I know that I am eating the right things and feeding my family well. I make exercise a priority. So far, I have lost over 30 lbs and dropped three clothing sizes!* I know that I will continue to make progress and work toward my ultimate health and fitness goals because I have developed tools that I can use every day.

I recommend Fitness Together without hesitation. The owners and staff will take time with you, get to know you, and help you to figure things out for your body and your health. For me, it is, without question, and investment that will pay off for years to come.

A Wedding and her first 5K Race!!!

I had been a client of Fitness Together in the past, and when I needed to have gallbladder surgery in 2010, I returned. I had three months to prepare for the operation. The trainers at Fitness Together developed a plan tailored for my needs and by my surgery date I had lost several pounds and increased my cardio ability*. I credit that program with making my recovery quick and painless.

That same year I became engaged. Fitness Together got me ready for my wedding dress shopping. By the time my first fitting happened six months later, my wedding dress was two sizes too big!* The staff at Fitness Together were so motivating and supportive during that time. I could never have done it without them. By my wedding date, I had lost almost thirty pounds and was running three miles.*

Since that time I have run my first 5K race and I continue to work with my trainer at FT. I know from experience that fitness is not something that you achieve and forget about. It's something I will work on every day for the rest of my life. The staff have helped me by being consistent and tireless advocates in helping me reach my goals and doing so with humor and patience. I never thought I would look forward to working out, but I do now.
