"I find that a lot of clients come to FT thinking that they don't have enough time to get fit. My response is simple: We specialize in helping people with limited time get results.
"The beauty of our programs are that they're truly customized. Our programs are designed to deliver an effective, efficient, science-based workout program that gets results. We'll hold you accountable to not only showing up for your workouts, but your nutrition and cardiovascular activity as well.
"Contrary to the common belief that being fit requires you to log hours in at the gym every day, getting fit with us at FT can take as little as two to three hours a week."

"Having no time is the most common answer I get from clients. I always tell them to prioritize by putting their workout sessions on their weekly schedule as a can't-miss appointment just like they would a doctor's appointment."

"The most common excuse I hear is, 'I don't have time!'
"Physically inactive people have just as much free time as exercisers, so you can chuck this excuse. Instead, schedule your exercise time with a Fitness Together professional trainer where your time is used very efficiently.
"Your personal trainer develops a workout plan and organizes each workout for you. All you need to do is come ready to work. With our one-of-a-kind private training suites, there's no time wasted on waiting for equipment, no stares and glares from others. It's just you and your trainer in a private training suite to maximize your results.
"If you can't find a full 30 minutes during your day, break it up into 10- or 15-minute segments. Use every trick in the book to squeeze in exercise. Get up a few minutes early and take a brisk walk. Use 15 minutes of your lunch hour to walk the stairs. Walk the dog or lift weights after work.
"Keep a calendar of your workouts so you can track your progress and stay motivated. Or find a Fitness Together studio where we do this for you! And remember that exercise generates energy; the more energy you have, the more you will accomplish each day!
"You won't regret being more active and taking time for you as you will feel better, look better, have more energy and be able to pass on your healthy lifestyle to your children and grandchildren! Just do it!"

"The most common reason is their lack of time. Something may come up and they have to cancel their session. We teach our members a 10-minute routine that is high intensity so they have no excuses. They always love the suggestions because it is a real challenge."
