I had lived in Bronxville for twenty-seven years when I walked past a sign in front of a narrow storefront opposite the hospital last Spring. It said something about getting into a smaller size of jeans. That caught my attention. Who wouldn’t want smaller jeans? For some weird reason, I stuck my head in and discovered it was Fitness Together. The head trainer, Lonnie Walton, came out of his office and greeted me.
It turns out that despite the narrow width, Fitness Together was a very deep space with two private gyms running back to back. It was immaculate and attractive. Lonnie, an incredibly fit and articulate man, explained that he designed custom workout plans and trained clients one at a time in the private space. Now I have always been fascinated by The Biggest Loser. I have always wondered what it would be like to have my very own Jillian or Bob. Lonnie was a walking advertisement for his profession. He obviously walked the walk. Impulsively, I signed on for my first package.
What a great decision. In the last couple of years, I have gotten heavily into ballroom dancing and Argentine Tango. One of the byproducts of all that fun is pain. At the time I had a hip and leg problem that flared up every time I tangoed and even kept me awake at night. It had been bothering me for months. I had tried massage and physical therapy. Before my first session, Lonnie asked me about any aches and pains. I told him about the shooting pains down my left leg. He listened. After a couple of sessions, the pain disappeared. It has never returned even though I do tango all the time.*
After a break over the summer from Bronxville and Lonnie, I developed an upper back and neck issue. Again, I returned to Lonnie and it magically abated.*
I’m not sure what he does. But, he really knows his business. And, he’s a blast to talk to. Fitness Together and Lonnie should be the talk of the town.
