This is a long overdue review of Fitness Together Hingham, MA and a much-deserved review. If you were like me and always hemming and hawing about taking care of you I hope you’ll read this.
I started contemplating going to Fitness Together in the summer of 2011. I had gone to a sample session at another “get in shape place” so my initial thought was, “This is no different than the other place.” I kept the original flyer I got in my backpack and I would look at it from time to time. In July 2011 or so, I was changing locations for work and I thought, “Ok this might be my time to make some additional changes.” I emailed the Fitness Together location in Hingham and I got a very nice response from Ken Fischer. I looked at it and thought – “eh, I’ll get to it.” Three weeks later, I emailed Ken again – this time I left my phone number and he called me to set up a meeting so I could at least check it out. I agreed to go to our initial meeting while I was waiting for my pizza to be delivered. In my mind I was thinking, “Sure I’ll go – but this will never work.” I wrote the directions down and got my gym clothes ready for the next day’s meeting.
On my way there, I came up with every conceivable excuse not do this. “What’s the point? I’ll just gain it back. I can’t commit. It’s probably too much money anyway.” You name the excuse and I thought about it. I got there and Ken was waiting for me. Even though I was scared to make the change, Ken made me feel comfortable. He was very professional and personable. He smiled and assured me every step of the way that there was no pressure – if I walked out of the studio at that moment it would be ok but he was hoping I would stay. We went over the basics, history, goals, and food tendencies just so we could get an idea of where I was and where I wanted to be. I would say that because of Ken’s personality it was the first time that I ever was honest aloud with myself never mind a complete stranger. We went through and did an assessment and I got to see the equipment that we’d be working with – free weights, multi-functional machine, kettle bells etc.
Towards the end, we discussed pricing. It was a very fair and open conversation. Ken provided me with all of the information and options I could have wanted. I had previously researched and found that the rate of the one-on-one sessions was the typical going rate and I was comfortable with that. It is more than your local gym but let me tell you something – it is worth its weight in gold. I decided to sign up that night – what I thought about was all of the fads I had done with little success, limited success or short-lived success. I decided on August 17th that this was going to be the day I was going to actually pursue my health for me. I committed for a three-month stint. At the end of those three months, I had lost approximately 14lbs but I was also stronger - stronger in mind and in body!*
I am still with Fitness Together and pursuing those goals! I would never have pursued Fitness Together if it were not for Ken Fischer. He is a professional but so much more than that. He listens to you as a person – knows when to push you harder than you think you can handle and ease up when you need that little break. Ken is not intimidating but rather supportive. Every step on your weight loss journey he takes with you and when you succeed he just smiles because he knew you could do it before you did. Ken has helped me lose the weight and move forward in my life. He has helped not only me but my brother too! He’s working with my brother – someone who I never thought I would see hit the gym – and he goes and LOVES IT! It is possible to work out and change for yourself – that’s what I have learned. Ken and Fitness Together Hingham is a big part of why I have succeed and why I will continue to succeed.
