I'm a long-time Fitness Together Belmont client and consider the cost an investment in my health. Here's why:
Weight loss: I've lost 45 pounds as a client at FT Belmont and most importantly I've kept it off for almost 2 years. This is the first time in my life that I have been able to maintain a significant weight loss for more than 6 or 8 months.
Running: I’ve never been a runner or an athlete. Because of the support I receive from the trainers at Fitness Together, I am now a runner. I did my first 5k in June 2012 with FT and have done 12 more since. I completed the Tufts 10k for women in 2012 and 2013.
Yoga: FT doesn't specifically focus on teaching yoga. A couple of the trainers were
worried that I wasn't doing enough post-run stretching, resulting in a loss of flexibility and knee soreness. At their recommendation, I am now incorporating yoga into my schedule and can really feel the difference. I love that the trainers at Fitness Together make recommendations that help me and my overall health!
I do 3 small group Pack training sessions each week and have a blast! The trainers are knowledgeable and know when and how to challenge me. When the little voice in my head tells me that something is too hard or that I am too tired, the trainer's voice is the one I listen to and keep on working. The trainers can modify exercises to make them a bit easier or more challenging based on the individual needs of the clients - this is not a cookie-cutter kind of a workout!
The atmosphere of the studio is very supportive. The trainers support the clients, and the clients support one another. FT Belmont a great place to work-out!
