Clients since 2010

In their own words:

1. What are your hobbies/interests?

We enjoy Skiing, Cooking, Music and Entertaining with friends

2. What is your main source of motivation?

Our motivation comes from wanting to live somewhat healthier lifestyle than we had in thepast. The fact that we can do this together along with our excellent trainer Ally has kept us coming back week after week for 6 years now.

3. What do you feel Fitness Together has helped you with the most?

Having set weekly appointments to work with a trainer has lead to far greater health and fitness for both of us. As avid skiers, our fall training program focuses our routines on getting ourselves ready for the slopes each season. From a nutritional stand point, we’ve learned that moderation and some better choices lead to a healthier lifestyle.

4. How do you think you have most improved since working with Fitness Together?

We are both in far better shape than when we first started. Strength, stamina and overall physical and mental health has come from our weekly sessions. Health issues first brought me to FT 6 years ago. Most of those are no longer an issue as the custom tailored programs have helped me overcome some of these physical challenges.

As I headed towards the big 6-0 my health became a motivating factor. All the aches and pains were a sign that I needed to take this seriously. Now I ache for different and better reasons. The one client, one trainer concept really sets FT apart from all the other gyms and exercise fads I’ve tried. Accountability and no excuses have kept me on track. I have a greater confidence and inner strength to be able to handle all the crazy incidences that occur in daily life. I also look better and feel great! The one thing I now have is hope. I know FT is a place I can go where all the trainers care about me and share in all my success, whether they are big or small. Their encouragement has kept me going towards my weight loss and fitness goals and I am confident that together we will achieve them.

As an active woman, I walk everyday and pride myself on eating healthy.  However, after many years of the same exercise routine, I found that I was no longer seeing results.  When I heard of Fitness Together and their motto of “1 Client – 1 Trainer – 1 Goal” it seemed like the answer to my exercise rut.  My trainers,  give me different exercises each session, which has helped me build upper body strength and whittle away inches from my midsection*– two things that proved impossible to do with walking alone.  Since I began training with them, I have seen improvements in many areas of my life.  First and foremost, I have noticed incredible changes in my health.   My blood pressure and cholesterol, which both were a little high when I started at FT, are now within normal range.*  Also, after a year and a half of training, my core is noticeably stronger.  I credit FT for the progress I have made.  They are hardworking, dedicated, incredibly encouraging and supportive and truly care about me reaching my fitness goals!  The one-on-one training I receive at Fitness Together has remarkably improved my life and is something that I will continue indefinitely.

To me Fitness Together is the best in Rhode Island. The trainers are awesome and they all want you to be successful. They're great! They push me, motivate me and show me that they really care.

FT has changed my attitude about exercise. I started late in 2008. I was about 15 pounds over weight, lacked strength and stamina and was dealing with restricted flexibility due to arthritic hips. FT put together programs that improved all of these things*. The trainers are excellent and the atmosphere is fun. They have become my friends as much as they are my trainers. Having scheduled appointments means I stick to the program, something I never did when I belonged to a regular gym.

FT is not a gym Factory! In the first meeting they actually listened to my goals and improvements I needed to make to my body. Matt and his team have continued to tailor a program to meet my needs and have held me accountable to achieve them. The Nutrition Together program was something I didn’t expect but it has been fabulous for me. I've lost a total of 30lbs* and better yet I have learned a lifestyle that has kept the weight off. It has taught me the right things to put into my body. FT is the total package!

Client Since September 2009

The crew at FT are helping me achieve my goals by developing workout plans that push me but do not exacerbate any of my existing conditions. They have also given me the guidance necessary to change my diet habits. The nutritional program has been a huge help. The greatest area of improvement for me since I started at is the increase in my strength and endurance. The loss of weight and inches* has been a great bonus but for me the greatest benefit is that I feel younger than I did several months ago.

Client Since September 2010

Fitness Together has truly improved not only my health, but my outlook on life. Before FT, I put myself last in most situations, focusing only on catering to others and putting my dreams on the back burner. Now, I really appreciate myself for exactly who I am and because of that I am more focused on taking care of myself FIRST and making my dreams and goals a reality, not just an after thought. FT has made me a genuinely happy person. Thank you Matt, Lara, Erskine, and Allison for EVERYTHING!

Emily Sack

Client Since May 2006

After I entered my 40's, I noticed the pounds creeping up on me. Even more important though, I had never felt in really good shape. I joined Fitness Together in May 2006, and I’ve never looked back!  When I first started, I could not do a push-up, and I was resigned to settling into middle age with a “muffin top” around my stomach – since then, I have gained strength and lost inches. I feel much better about the way I look, but what I hadn’t realized was how much confidence I would gain!  For the first time in many years, I got back on a bike, and ended up taking a cycling trip in Canada last summer. I enjoyed it so much that I’m planning another cycling and hiking vacation this summer.

All the trainers at Fitness Together have worked with me on strength, cardio, and endurance, as well as balance. In the past, when I had occasionally tried out a trainer at a gym, I had always felt intimidated. What I love about the Fitness Together trainers is that they are challenging, but very attuned to your level, and flexible so that they can address your priorities. They really focus on each client individually and constantly adjust your program so that it is always challenging and never boring! They are knowledgeable and serious about what they do, but they are also a lot of fun, and they know how to motivate.  

I want to thank Fitness Together in Barrington for making a huge difference in the way I think about my abilities. If Matt has his way, I may even be training for a half-marathon in the not too distant future!

Words cannot express how amazing Fitness Together has been throughout my weight loss and physical training.* I am amazed at the level of professionalism with the staff. They have been there 110% of the way. Incredible! Thank you so much!

Maybe it was midlife, or maybe an awakening, or maybe my pants were way too tight,
but it was clear I needed to lose some weight. Also, due to a family history of
osteoporosis my doctor encouraged me to exercise with weights. After a few failed diets
and exercise programs I was frustrated. 

Fitness Together has turned out to be the perfect fit for me. Having Matt and Donna as my
personal trainers to instruct, guide and encourage me has made such a difference.* On my
own I would never have been this successful.

Summer 2010

It has been fabulous! I actually came in with not a lot of expectations. I’ve been working out for a while, but I was a little nervous coming to a new place and having to change up my workout regimen, but it has exceeded, far exceeded my expectations. Just a great bunch of people here. I’ve been working with Lara and Matt and they are just so knowledgeable, just really, really know what they’re doing. So I am excited to go back home and show the results to all my friends back there.

Eight years ago, I delivered my second child and found myself 20 pounds over my goal weight. Between raising two kids, working full time, and keeping my husband in line, the last thing on my mind was exercise. It was then that I discovered Fitness Together. I figured I would do a few sessions, lose some of my baby weight, and move on with my life. During the next few months, I quickly came to appreciate the one-on-one attention and tailored exercise programs. I began to feel stronger and more centered. These days, the exercise is less about losing weight and more about keeping myself sane and in shape. I suppose I also exercise to stave off the aging process. When my mother was diagnosed with dementia years ago, I came to realize the importance of exercise in preventing this terrible disease. With my chaotic life, the Fitness Together team always keeps me on track towards better health.*

One of the best decisions I made in my life was joining Fitness Together! I still remember the first time I spoke with Matt and Lara. They were so supportive and gave me the confidence to believe in myself because they believed in me. They took the time to understand me and the challenges I had with weight loss. Matt and Lara took the time to get to know me. They follow up with me with emails or phone calls to make sure I stay on track. Lara is always looking for ways to support me with nutrition as well as fitness. Lara, Allison and Erskine make sure they push me to get the most of my workouts and I THANK YOU!  I have so many things to thank Fitness Together for, but what means the most to me is that they have treated me life family.  I have lost 125lbs and over 78 inches.*

If it wasn't for my Fitness Together family, I wouldn't be the person I am today. There are no words to describe what they did for me. They changed my life forever. They are an inspiration to me and because of my FT family, I pay it forward by sharing the knowledge and support they have given me on my weight loss journey to other people who need someone to believe in them the way they believed in me!
