Fitness Together

Ed Yarb

When it comes to fitness and activity, I had neither in my life prior to joining Fitness Together. Physical exertion and I were complete strangers, and it showed! Somehow life accelerated after age 35, and here I was facing my 50's decade out of shape and pretty much hopeless. It wasn't that I didn't want to get in shape... I had the desire, but no commitment. I joined gyms and programs in the past only to fail myself and quit literally within the same month I joined.

So here I was at age 53, secretly harboring a desire to take one more shot at getting into my best possible physical shape in years, but I had no direction. No plan.

Somehow, my fiance Deb got a flyer from Fitness Together and examined their business. Group Training, she thought was the answer for my accountability issues. Finally, an affordable way to make a customized workout and hold myself accountable to someone who invested their time in me.

I've already broken my commitment-phobia. I'm going on 3 months at Fitness Together and actually getting results! Kristin is my group trainer, and she's amazing. She can work me hard, but can tailor any exercise to my ability level. She makes me not want to let her down. Accountability! That's the key.

The entire staff have been amazing. You're not a number or just a face, you're a name, and you are remembered. The information I have received from nutritional and diet support and workout routines has been far more useful than anything I've been able to gather on my own. And it works.

In just 3 months, I'm down 20 pounds, and changing body shape dramatically*... (well, for ME it's dramatic) Fitness Together is working for me, and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. If you think your days of being or getting in shape are over... start walking, and take your first steps into a Fitness Together.

I look forward to working out more days soon, and for the people at my Fitness Together who are reading this, I thank you from the bottom of my healthy heart.

After I moved from Michigan to Sand Key in May, I had put on 12 pounds, my energy level was low and my appetite was high. I decided I needed help. So in December I asked Siri on my iPhone to find me a personal trainer near me……………… and she told me about Fitness Together. There they were only 5 minutes from my condo. I began training with them. They are fabulous!!!! I told them that for the last 5 years my job has kept me on the road for 50,000 mile per year. That is a lot of sitting, my core shape was gone. In the morning I would wake with lower back pain, I thought it was my mattress. They customized an exercise plan to fit my needs, now my energy level is back, and my back pain is GONE*!!! THANK YOU FT! I took the Whole 30 challenge, l love the nutrition support and knowledge that the team has given. I feel so much better. I have a few more pounds to lose but I feel amazing. Fitness Together always makes me feel comfortable and welcome, I love the personal attention.

Exercising on my own wasn’t working. I came to the realization that I am never going to push myself as hard as someone else would. I decided I needed a personal trainer. That’s what the “stars” do, right?

Signing up with Fitness Together for a personal training program was one of the best things I’ve ever done! All the trainers do a great job of mixing up the exercises and keeping the workouts TOUGH but FUN! I really like the personal attention and the extra one-on-one motivation I receive with every workout. Seeing fast results is another great motivator. In only 2 months I lost 18 pounds of fat, reduced body fat by over 6% and lost over 17 inches*. I still have a ways to go before I reach my goal but I feel confident I will get there. Fitness Together is worth every penny!

I began my membership at Fitness Together after receiving a letter in the mail but kept it for a few months before I made the decision to try it out. When I initially started it was my goal to improve muscle definition. After about 4 months to my surprise I learned that flexibility is what I needed most and never really understood the importance. Between growing older and working a desk job I didn’t realize how inflexible I had become. Weight lifting the correct way has all but eliminated nagging lower back pain and made me much more flexible.

The personal attention of the trainers is what keeps me coming back. I enjoy the encouragement and challenge to improve in a private setting where I can advance at my own pace. Proper nutrition remains my biggest challenge and one I have not yet taken advantage of at Fitness Together. With my travel schedule I struggle to maintain proper nutrition but I am not giving up. With the help of the staff I will eventually figure out what can work.

The energy and friendliness of the staff and the personal relationships I have developed have kept me motivated to maintain my weekly routine. My schedule only allows me two visits per week at FT and once on my own so I do my best not to miss.

While I have not advanced at the pace I would like due to my work schedule I can say I am in the best shape I have been in over 20 years. With the help of the staff at Fitness Together I am certain I will eventually reach my goals.

I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with you and your team, JD in particular. My evaluation results this week were just great...but what they don't show is the fact that I am down 2 -3 sizes* (to a 5!!!) and that is what really matters to me. That, and the fact that I have never looked or felt better in my life.

JD is just great...he's an excellent motivator, as well as a down-to-earth, professional guy with a consistently positive attitude. We work very well together, and the results are clearly visible...he sets a great example, and he is really a pleasure to be around.

Your program is demanding, but I always feel great when I leave your studio. That's a real testament to you and JD.

Thanks for working with me,

In just eight short weeks Fitness Together Belleair has changed my life*. I have been training three times a week with them and together we have drastically increased my strength and flexibility*. During my sessions I have learned to work out much more effectively and efficiently.

In regards to my diet, Fitness Together has done a great job teaching me valuable lessons such as what to eat and what not to eat. It was tough in the beginning to change my bad habits but I slowly started to eat and live a healthier lifestyle. By combining my strength training with a healthier diet I was able to drop two inches off my waist in just eight weeks*! I was ecstatic to see how much I have improved my life. I feel more confident and I am a much happier person. I love Fitness Together and I look forward to each one of my workouts!

In May of 2013 I was notified by the State of Wyoming that I had won the trip of a lifetime in the Grand Teton National Park. My initial joy was quickly replaced with a genuine concern on whether I would be able to complete the high altitude trek after many years of a sedentary lifestyle.

On the referral of a good friend, I began an intensive training program at Fitness Together. The trainers provided me with expert guidance on exercise as well as excellent instruction with diet, stretching and cross training methods to use on my "days off". In four months, I lost 20 lbs and gained the strength and confidence to climb 12,000 ft peaks day after day*.

The most amazing part for me was the encouragement and the genuine concern displayed by the staff at Fitness Together. I am also extremely impressed with their attention to detail and safety that allows me to continue training aggressively without significant injury. As a practicing Orthopaedic Surgeon, I am most impressed with the trainer's knowledge and concern for safety.

What began as a short term goal has become my new lifestyle. I have referred friends and family as I feel Fitness Together Belleair provides the best environment for anyone who wants to get in better shape.

In short, Fitness Together has been a life changing experience for me. I think you're stuck with me as a client for a long time to come!

I have been going to Fitness Together Belleair for almost a year. I suffered from Avascular Necrosis over 4 years ago, I was not supposed to live, walk, talk, or see again but here I am! I have lost over 5 inches in my chest, waist, and hips* at Fitness Together! I can’t believe it! Fitness Together Belleair has helped me with my Nutrition and eating habits and has helped me to walk and move around so much better!* I am very happy with the strength I’ve gained in my muscles. If I can do it, everyone can!

I have recommended Fitness Together Belleair to many of my friends and will continue to do so!

I first heard of Fitness Together when I saw that they were opening a new studio near my home. After visiting the studio and completing my free work-out, I was hooked! I have been a client since 2005 and I believe that I am their original client. Since starting at Fitness Together, I am fitter and stronger. During the Whole 30 challenge in August 2012, I was able to lose weight and inches which is important to me*. I am in my early 50s so weight loss has become more difficult even since I started training.

The trainers are extremely professional and knowledgeable. They motivate me to achieve goals that I would not do on my own. Each trainer individualizes the training program based on the goals of the client. The overall energy and environment in the studio is very positive. I recommend Fitness Together to my friends and believe that they can benefit from working out with the FT trainers.

When my trainer of 6 years left the area I was lost. After extensive searching I found Fitness Together! It had been a business in my neighborhood for a long time so I visited. The facility is well organized and well staffed. It was a very clean and everyone is very friendly.

The trainers are a professional group of people and they are always there for my session, on time and prepared. The workouts are challenging and fun. They have helped me keep on track with my fitness goals and weight management. They have been supportive when I’ve been injured. They help me keep my training ongoing and consistent. It’s a lifetime path and I’m taking it with Fitness Together Belleair.
