In February of 2008 I made a phone call that truly changed my life. It was to Fitness Together. At the time, I was working for a weight loss company. I was so busy helping others get healthy that I had forgotten about me. I noticed that my blood pressure was getting higher and I was experiencing pain in my hips and knees whenever I would walk. A light bulb finally went on! I knew that I would not be able to enjoy my future if I didn't take care of myself now.
Even though I live right around the corner, I had never thought of going to Fitness Together for help but my son met one of the owners, Mike, and they got to talking. Next thing I knew, my son was trying to talk me into going to FT and he wouldn't shut up until I went! I met with the other owner, Katie, and I knew right away that they were totally different than any place else. The main thing that I took away from my initial meeting with Katie is how genuine of a person she was. I told her about what I wanted to achieve and she told me how that was going to be done.I had a few objections but she resolved all of them. I decided to put my future health in the hands of the trainers at Fitness Together.
Since the day I joined, I have consistently worked out 3-4 days per week and have increased my cardio activity to 6 days a week. I have lost 22 lbs. of fat, 7% body fat, and dropped 2 dress sizes!* My trainers (and it's fabulous, you get more than just one!) are so encouraging and ALWAYS have positive attitudes. I am sure that there are no other workout centers that have such a high caliber of trainers working under the same roof as FT does.
There is one other thing. In July of 2009 I joined the statistics and became unemployed. Decisions had to be made on how our family was going to cut back on expenses. One expense that we talked about cutting out was my training sessions. Luckily we rethought that and came up with other ways to cut back. I knew that I could live without certain things but to stay healthy physically, mentally and emotionally, I simply could not live without my workouts at Fitness Together.
