A Message from the Owners
Sep 21, 2011
Wilda and David Young are the owners of Fitness Together, which they opened in July, 2007. They saw a need for a physical fitness facility that offered a high degree of specialized attention, in a private environment, in order to improve overall health and fitness. They found that "doing it on their own" through jogging, health clubs and home gyms simply did not work. They needed the commitment and accountability offered by a professional Personal Trainer, and preferred the environment offered at a private studio.
Wilda is a Physical Therapist specializing in Women's Health and urological issues. She found that the medical profession can address the specific issues, but is not able to provide the ongoing attention necessary for making significant lifestyle changes.
David is a retired business person with vast experience in International Business. He spent far too much time in airplanes, hotels, and business meetings, and suffered many of the health challenges faced by business executives these days: lack of energy, unwanted weight gain, and high blood pressure.
Neither Wilda nor David are Personal Trainers. They are not "meat heads" or "gym rats." They are not in to "body building," nor are their trainers. Rather, Wilda and David have been enthusiastic Fitness Together clients from the day the studio opened, and they pay for their trainers' services just like all other clients do. They do this not only to stay in shape, but so they can understand and continuously evaluate the "value proposition" of Fitness Together's services. In other words, they want to make sure Fitness Together clients are getting exactly what they pay for.
Fitness Together is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and The Better Business Bureau. David says, "The fitness industry sometimes has a sketchy reputation. All of our sessions are by appointment only. THis means no waiting for equipment, no long-term contracts, and no parading around in front of a gym full of people. We're especially proud of the fact that since we opened in 2007, we have not had a single complaint to The Better Business Bureau. Not that we've 'resolved all complaints'--we've simply had none to resolve! Remember, we're clients too!"
