    I've been going to Fitness Together in Belmont for a little over 3 years now and it has been working for me in ways I would never have guessed when I started.  I love the friendliness and  competence of all the trainers. Each trainer has a different personal style, but they are all great!  Paula smiles nicely and doesn't let me stop working; Brian explains body dynamics and nutrition; Paul connects with me no matter how I'm feeling - and then gets me moving and feeling better. They all let me be crabby and complain if I want, but I usually leave much happier than when I arrive. Because of their emphasis on form and good body mechanics, I've been able to do things I would never have dreamed  of attempting by myself or in a regular fitness class.  Without injury (knock on iron).

    I've enjoyed the weight-training since I started, and recently decided I wanted some really heavy lifting.  FT obliged with a program that has increased my strength, shaped my body and made me able to lift wiggly grandchildren safely and repeatedly.  Today, working with PJ (the owner), I reached my goal of a 100-pound incline chest press!  It's awesome working with him - he trains my body and my mind to accomplish much more than I think I can do.  

    At Fitness Together, I've discovered the joys of the bench and the lifting cage.  Not the usual thing for an older retired woman would say - but something that really suits me.  FT really does provide individualized coaching and support. Some of us are runners; some are lifters; some are dancers.  It feels right to work with people who can design programs that enable each of us to do more of what we love, and to expand our ideas of what we can do.

    Ron R - age 40

    I knew I was going to be turning 40 soon and I felt like I was in the worst shape of my life.   Finally, my wife was sick of listening to me and said that she thought I should go back and see Tony.  That was the best decision I have made in a long time.  After working with the trainers for the last 8 weeks, I have lost over 25 pounds* and have not enjoyed exercising this much since I was 25.  They are pushing me harder than I could ever push myself and it feels great.  The team at FT in Auburndale is terrific and I look forward to every training session.  I cant wait to lose the next 25!

     

  • Melissa P - age 45

    After giving birth to the twins, I wanted to have more energy to play with my children and feel stronger as I enter my mid-40’s. I have felt stronger, lost some weight and it keeps me focused on taking care of myself*. My clothes fit better and I am in better shape for skiing. It works for me to have an appointment. What I like is the privacy, the individual attention and the scheduled appointment.

  • Christy C

    Where to begin? They are just awesome. From the very first meeting with Josh, the owner to the last workout I had. Every experience here has been 5 stars. Josh has the best energy (you do, Josh). Not too pushy but so helpful and SUPER positive. It's like he's genuinely excited you're getting fit. :)  And it makes you WANT to get fit. The trainers are ALL great. Friendly, fun and all very knowledgeable and all very able to modify for whatever obstacles you have. Best of all: its nice and private, so if you're a little intimidated (like me) to workout at a gym in front of countless people, this is your place! Oh and honestly the prices are so reasonable. Whether its their Sudbury or Wayland location you really cannot go wrong here. Thanks guys!*

  • Tiana W
    Natick

    Between working a full time job, babysitting part time, and being a full time college student, I have a hard time finding time to take care and nourish my body the way it needs to be. I started at Fitness Together in Wayland two months ago because I knew that I needed the extra push to get going in the right direction; and it has been one of the best decisions of my life! Josh, the owner, makes himself available for each client and makes sure to tend to everyone's needs.I have had the pleasure of working with every trainer in the Wayland location (Kevin, Maria, Kurt, and Dawn) and they are all absolutely fantastic. Kevin distracts my mind when I am doing a difficult exercise with a funny story about his dog or wall (ask him about it!). Kurt has a very vibrant personality and always gets me to laugh through the whole session, and Maria will take the time to do the workouts alongside me as support and she also gives me great tips on nutrition. I use the showers before I go to work, and I usually don't like public showers but this one is very clean and well managed (and stocked with the best deodorant and lotion ever). Even though I just started two months ago, and there are clients who have been going for years- when I walk in the door everyone knows my name and makes me feel like I belong there. I have never felt stronger and more energized (not even in high school!) then I do now after working with FItness Together. If you are considering using fitness together, I would highly highly recommend it.

    Rose C
    Sudbury

    From the age of 15 until I was in my early 30’s I was always underweight (I even resorted to taking medication to increase my appetite to get me to 100 lbs!).  In my late 20’s I started developing extreme fatigue and muscle & joint pain. Up until then I was a high-energy person. I was eventually diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune disease that causes debilitating fatigue, affects the heart, lungs, joints and major organs. I was told the best way to manage this disease was to reduce stress. I managed to avoid the typical treatment of steroids for the first 15 years after my diagnosis. But, then came mid-life and hormonal changes which wreaked havoc on the Lupus. I needed to take prednisone briefly for the first time since my diagnosis. I gained 40 lbs in a 4 year period. I went from a size 6 to a size 12. I tried a weight loss program but I knew that without devoting time to exercise…..I wouldn’t make any real progress. I needed to do both.

    With my family history (my mother had a heart attack at age 41 and my father has hypertension and had two strokes), my high blood pressure and high cholesterol, extra weight, along with Lupus – I was at a very high risk for developing heart disease like my parents and most of my relatives.

    In 2010 I was unhappy in an extremely busy job, working as an Executive Assistant for 12-14 hours a day at a Boston hospital, with a long commute and just didn’t have the time or the energy to get motivated to exercise. I got the courage to leave that position and last January (2011) moved into a great new rewarding job that I love, at the same institution. It was just a month or so later that I began to face marital issues and eventual separation. My self-esteem plummeted. I knew I needed to take control of my life and find a way to cope with the stress, eat healthier and improve my strength. It was time to focus on me for a change. I believe that I was able to get thru this most difficult year in large part due to my training at Fitness Together.

    I didn’t think I could afford personal training – but FT worked hard to find a way to allow me to manage it financially. I spend two days a week with my trainer- Dawn, who helps me find routines that protect me from injury. She knows when to push me and when to ease up if I am not feeling well. This method helps me stay consistent. I have more energy, strength and flexibility. I’ve lost 30 lbs!* I have 10 lbs to go to get back to my ideal dress size (6)! 

    Most importantly – I’ve significantly improved my health. I have been a client for one year, and recently had my first physical in nearly three years. I’ve lowered my blood pressure, reduced my cholesterol significantly, and my c-reactive protein (which measures inflammation- mine has always been very high) was completely normal for the first time in 20 years. I haven’t had a significant Lupus flare in more than a year. I feel better at age 50 than I did at 30! 

    The best part is that I love my time at the gym (especially the strength training) and really look forward to going. I am completely comfortable and happy with the entire staff at FT in Sudbury. I won’t ever look back. I have improved my mental and physical health, and I look forward to my happy and healthy future!*

    I have been going to Fitness Together for four months now and the only mistake I made was I didn't come here years ago. I would've saved all the money I wasted at other gyms and programs that I never went to. I can honestly say that this is the first time in my life that I really look forward to going to the gym and working out. Thanks Andy and Josh!*

  • Helen G

    Aerobics. Weights. Stretching. A complete body workout making you feel better than when you arrived at the studio. I am stronger and healthier since I started training with Dawn. She tailor makes a workout that challenges me every time - never a boring day since I started over eight years ago.*

    Pam Brunnett
    I have lost over 40 lbs, gained muscle, significantly reduced my body fat...

    Bottom Line: If you are looking for some help in reaching your personal fitness goals, you should strongly consider joining Fitness Together in Belmont! The main reason?: The People! This place has some amazing trainers! They are what has kept me going there for the past year. Well, them AND results! They have helped me get those results though, so perhaps I am right back to saying the real reason is the people there! 

    Some of the things that make this place great:

    *They make it a fun and welcoming environment! Every single time you walk through the door, they greet you by name and with excitement and enthusiasm. I'm serious...every single time! It makes you feel good just for showing up and a bit happier to be there, especially if it's on a day where you really had to drag yourself there kicking and screaming. 

    *They truly listen to what your goals are and come up with a personal plan that is specific and unique for you! In my experience, there are a lot of places and programs out there that claim to create personalized programs, but they are not truly personalized. At FT Belmont, they have regular sessions with you to discuss your specific goals and they create a personalized nutrition and training program based on those discussions and your specific goals. For Real! I see them writing customized workouts all the time for myself and others or coming up with nutrition suggestions to fit with various individual's circumstances or limitations. They take the time to really get to know their clients and figure out what will work for them. This has been particularly important for me given that I was recovering from a major sports injury (and 2 surgeries) when I first started going to FT Belmont a year ago...and I also had some pretty big goals in mind!

    *They regularly change up my workouts. For me, this is key! First- in terms of making progress, I know that this is important. Second-let's face it; doing the same workout over and over is miserable!

    *They regularly check in and track progress towards goals and they do it in a way that is motivating. They acknowledge and celebrate progress and they also identify when changes or tweaks are needed to either get things back on track or to help progress continue.

    *The trainers are extremely knowledgeable. The short and sweet -- they know their sh*t!

    *As I mentioned above, they truly take the time to get to know you and are constantly working towards helping you achieve what it is you want to achieve (even if you are constantly complaining while doing it)! Trust me-I've definitely done my fair share of complaining! They take it all in stride and they constantly push me in motivating and creative ways in order to help me get what it is I ultimately want! By getting to know their clients so well, they also know when to change things up on the fly based upon your mood, soreness, limitations, etc. Yes, I can be moody, especially at 6:30am when someone is telling me to do a burpee! I am not a morning person.

    *They make it fun! Yes, you read that right; they can actually make working out fun! I have played sports my whole life and have done my fair share of working out, but I'm definitely not one of those people who enjoy it (if those people even exist). What I do enjoy is the way I feel afterwards, the way it helps me perform better and the changes to my body as a result of the work put in. The trainers at FT Belmont have fun and energetic personalities. They are very motivating and they make me laugh all the time. This helps get me there on those days when I really don't feel like working out. Besides, I know they will call me if I don't show up!

    *They hold you accountable, in positive & motivating ways.

    *I've seen some really amazing results!

    Let's talk cost real quick. It's expensive; I'm not going to lie. It's my biggest complaint about the place. HOWEVER-at the end of the day, it has been worth every cent! Don't get me wrong, I would have liked to have spent less, BUT, I have lost over 40 lbs, gained muscle, significantly reduced my body fat %, lost a lot of inches, increased my cardio capacity, replaced my wardrobe because nothing fits anymore, increased my strength, returned to playing hockey and made significant progress towards recovering from my injury and getting back to playing soccer again. So, it was worth it! I do not think I would have made this progress in other cheaper programs. In fact, I've tried in the past and haven't been able to. So although other alternatives may have been cheaper, if they didn't work I would have just wasted my money altogether. My experience at FT Belmont has been fun (even when I've hated it), motivating, flexible and personalized. They hold me accountable, they are knowledgeable, they care and most importantly, I have been able to stick with it and get some great results! I would not have continued to go here for as long as I have if that were not the case. If you are serious and want results- IT'S WORTH IT!

  • Ken Reyes
    reyes726@gmail.com

    Where to begin? You come to Fitness Together feeling a tad overwhelmed and not really sure if you are ready to make a commitment. You think, in fact you know, that this is gonna cost you, not only in cold hard cash but physically as well. As PJ shows you an F.T. PowerPoint presentation your mind starts to wander (which is easy to do for any PowerPoint demo). You start asking yourself many questions: "Is this gonna hurt? Will I even be able to do a single push up? Can I afford this? What will happen if I puke on the rug from sheer exhaustion? Should I buy instead that flat screen TV? What have I got myself into?"

    You then start to rationalize, "I will just eat right" or "I'll buy a treadmill and workout in my basement". But then reality sets in; maybe not right away but maybe days or weeks later at home or at work or while driving- you feel the bulge of your tummy under your shirt; you're out of breath when you walk up stairs or you just don't feel awake all day. You realize that you are in fact ready to challenge yourself and workout like you never have before but you're gonna' need some help. You join F.T in spite of your self-doubts and fears. The flat screen TV will have to wait.

    The first day is sheer torture. They prod and poke at your body and take measurements with funny looking instruments. Shriek! The weight scale tells no lies. They make you stretch and do push-ups and sit-ups. Suddenly, day one is over. You think, "This actually is not so bad. I can do this." Later on that day, you remember that the trainers are all friendly and are genuinely interested in making you a better person. It's actually a nice place to be.

    Your second session comes along and you are now feeling even less self-doubt. Some of the exercises they start you with are challenging; you've never used free weights before; and those pieces of exercise equipment look intimidating; your body has never done that type of move; you want to puke on the rug from sheer exhaustion. This is the point where you would normally quit if you were doing this on your own but instead your personal trainer encourages you and makes sure that you progress slowly and surely. You decide, "Yes, I will return for my next session- after all, I've already paid for it." Subconsciously though, you know that you really do enjoy the workout! This continues on and on for several weeks. You feel really comfortable working out at F.T. It's like your own personal gym. Some sessions are really hard and you think, "How can I get a refund?" But you persevere because your pants start to fit better and you have lots more energy during the day. You start to see toned muscles underneath your clothes.  You like what you see in the mirror. You've made some new friends at the gym and you can't wait for your workday to end so that you can get a good workout at F.T. You've made vast improvements in your exercise routines. You have never once puked on the rug in spite of sheer exhaustion. You can now do dozens of pushups and sit-ups within a minute. You are stronger and fitter like you have never been before. You've come a long way from that terrifying day 1. You think, in fact you know, that it was all worth it.

Up until then I was a high-energy person. I was eventually diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune disease that causes debilitating fatigue, affects the heart, lungs, joints and major organs. I was told the best way to manage this disease was to reduce stress. I managed to avoid the typical treatment of steroids for the first 15 years after my diagnosis. But, then came mid-life and hormonal changes which wreaked havoc on the Lupus. I needed to take prednisone briefly for the first time since my diagnosis. I gained 40 lbs in a 4 year period. I went from a size 6 to a size 12. I tried a weight loss program but I knew that without devoting time to exercise…..I wouldn’t make any real progress. I needed to do both.

    With my family history (my mother had a heart attack at age 41 and my father has hypertension and had two strokes), my high blood pressure and high cholesterol, extra weight, along with Lupus – I was at a very high risk for developing heart disease like my parents and most of my relatives.

    In 2010 I was unhappy in an extremely busy job, working as an Executive Assistant for 12-14 hours a day at a Boston hospital, with a long commute and just didn’t have the time or the energy to get motivated to exercise. I got the courage to leave that position and last January (2011) moved into a great new rewarding job that I love, at the same institution. It was just a month or so later that I began to face marital issues and eventual separation. My self-esteem plummeted. I knew I needed to take control of my life and find a way to cope with the stress, eat healthier and improve my strength. It was time to focus on me for a change. I believe that I was able to get thru this most difficult year in large part due to my training at Fitness Together.

    I didn’t think I could afford personal training – but FT worked hard to find a way to allow me to manage it financially. I spend two days a week with my trainer- Dawn, who helps me find routines that protect me from injury. She knows when to push me and when to ease up if I am not feeling well. This method helps me stay consistent. I have more energy, strength and flexibility. I’ve lost 30 lbs!* I have 10 lbs to go to get back to my ideal dress size (6)! 

    Most importantly – I’ve significantly improved my health. I have been a client for one year, and recently had my first physical in nearly three years. I’ve lowered my blood pressure, reduced my cholesterol significantly, and my c-reactive protein (which measures inflammation- mine has always been very high) was completely normal for the first time in 20 years. I haven’t had a significant Lupus flare in more than a year. I feel better at age 50 than I did at 30! 

    The best part is that I love my time at the gym (especially the strength training) and really look forward to going. I am completely comfortable and happy with the entire staff at FT in Sudbury. I won’t ever look back. I have improved my mental and physical health, and I look forward to my happy and healthy future!*

    I have been going to Fitness Together for four months now and the only mistake I made was I didn't come here years ago. I would've saved all the money I wasted at other gyms and programs that I never went to. I can honestly say that this is the first time in my life that I really look forward to going to the gym and working out. Thanks Andy and Josh!*

    Aerobics. Weights. Stretching. A complete body workout making you feel better than when you arrived at the studio. I am stronger and healthier since I started training with Dawn. She tailor makes a workout that challenges me every time - never a boring day since I started over eight years ago.*

    I have lost over 40 lbs, gained muscle, significantly reduced my body fat...

    Bottom Line: If you are looking for some help in reaching your personal fitness goals, you should strongly consider joining Fitness Together in Belmont! The main reason?: The People! This place has some amazing trainers! They are what has kept me going there for the past year. Well, them AND results! They have helped me get those results though, so perhaps I am right back to saying the real reason is the people there! 

    Some of the things that make this place great:

    *They make it a fun and welcoming environment! Every single time you walk through the door, they greet you by name and with excitement and enthusiasm. I'm serious...every single time! It makes you feel good just for showing up and a bit happier to be there, especially if it's on a day where you really had to drag yourself there kicking and screaming. 

    *They truly listen to what your goals are and come up with a personal plan that is specific and unique for you! In my experience, there are a lot of places and programs out there that claim to create personalized programs, but they are not truly personalized. At FT Belmont, they have regular sessions with you to discuss your specific goals and they create a personalized nutrition and training program based on those discussions and your specific goals. For Real! I see them writing customized workouts all the time for myself and others or coming up with nutrition suggestions to fit with various individual's circumstances or limitations. They take the time to really get to know their clients and figure out what will work for them. This has been particularly important for me given that I was recovering from a major sports injury (and 2 surgeries) when I first started going to FT Belmont a year ago...and I also had some pretty big goals in mind!

    *They regularly change up my workouts. For me, this is key! First- in terms of making progress, I know that this is important. Second-let's face it; doing the same workout over and over is miserable!

    *They regularly check in and track progress towards goals and they do it in a way that is motivating. They acknowledge and celebrate progress and they also identify when changes or tweaks are needed to either get things back on track or to help progress continue.

    *The trainers are extremely knowledgeable. The short and sweet -- they know their sh*t!

    *As I mentioned above, they truly take the time to get to know you and are constantly working towards helping you achieve what it is you want to achieve (even if you are constantly complaining while doing it)! Trust me-I've definitely done my fair share of complaining! They take it all in stride and they constantly push me in motivating and creative ways in order to help me get what it is I ultimately want! By getting to know their clients so well, they also know when to change things up on the fly based upon your mood, soreness, limitations, etc. Yes, I can be moody, especially at 6:30am when someone is telling me to do a burpee! I am not a morning person.

    *They make it fun! Yes, you read that right; they can actually make working out fun! I have played sports my whole life and have done my fair share of working out, but I'm definitely not one of those people who enjoy it (if those people even exist). What I do enjoy is the way I feel afterwards, the way it helps me perform better and the changes to my body as a result of the work put in. The trainers at FT Belmont have fun and energetic personalities. They are very motivating and they make me laugh all the time. This helps get me there on those days when I really don't feel like working out. Besides, I know they will call me if I don't show up!

    *They hold you accountable, in positive & motivating ways.

    *I've seen some really amazing results!

    Let's talk cost real quick. It's expensive; I'm not going to lie. It's my biggest complaint about the place. HOWEVER-at the end of the day, it has been worth every cent! Don't get me wrong, I would have liked to have spent less, BUT, I have lost over 40 lbs, gained muscle, significantly reduced my body fat %, lost a lot of inches, increased my cardio capacity, replaced my wardrobe because nothing fits anymore, increased my strength, returned to playing hockey and made significant progress towards recovering from my injury and getting back to playing soccer again. So, it was worth it! I do not think I would have made this progress in other cheaper programs. In fact, I've tried in the past and haven't been able to. So although other alternatives may have been cheaper, if they didn't work I would have just wasted my money altogether. My experience at FT Belmont has been fun (even when I've hated it), motivating, flexible and personalized. They hold me accountable, they are knowledgeable, they care and most importantly, I have been able to stick with it and get some great results! I would not have continued to go here for as long as I have if that were not the case. If you are serious and want results- IT'S WORTH IT!

    Where to begin? You come to Fitness Together feeling a tad overwhelmed and not really sure if you are ready to make a commitment. You think, in fact you know, that this is gonna cost you, not only in cold hard cash but physically as well. As PJ shows you an F.T. PowerPoint presentation your mind starts to wander (which is easy to do for any PowerPoint demo). You start asking yourself many questions: "Is this gonna hurt? Will I even be able to do a single push up? Can I afford this? What will happen if I puke on the rug from sheer exhaustion? Should I buy instead that flat screen TV? What have I got myself into?"

    You then start to rationalize, "I will just eat right" or "I'll buy a treadmill and workout in my basement". But then reality sets in; maybe not right away but maybe days or weeks later at home or at work or while driving- you feel the bulge of your tummy under your shirt; you're out of breath when you walk up stairs or you just don't feel awake all day. You realize that you are in fact ready to challenge yourself and workout like you never have before but you're gonna' need some help. You join F.T in spite of your self-doubts and fears. The flat screen TV will have to wait.

    The first day is sheer torture. They prod and poke at your body and take measurements with funny looking instruments. Shriek! The weight scale tells no lies. They make you stretch and do push-ups and sit-ups. Suddenly, day one is over. You think, "This actually is not so bad. I can do this." Later on that day, you remember that the trainers are all friendly and are genuinely interested in making you a better person. It's actually a nice place to be.

    Your second session comes along and you are now feeling even less self-doubt. Some of the exercises they start you with are challenging; you've never used free weights before; and those pieces of exercise equipment look intimidating; your body has never done that type of move; you want to puke on the rug from sheer exhaustion. This is the point where you would normally quit if you were doing this on your own but instead your personal trainer encourages you and makes sure that you progress slowly and surely. You decide, "Yes, I will return for my next session- after all, I've already paid for it." Subconsciously though, you know that you really do enjoy the workout! This continues on and on for several weeks. You feel really comfortable working out at F.T. It's like your own personal gym. Some sessions are really hard and you think, "How can I get a refund?" But you persevere because your pants start to fit better and you have lots more energy during the day. You start to see toned muscles underneath your clothes.  You like what you see in the mirror. You've made some new friends at the gym and you can't wait for your workday to end so that you can get a good workout at F.T. You've made vast improvements in your exercise routines. You have never once puked on the rug in spite of sheer exhaustion. You can now do dozens of pushups and sit-ups within a minute. You are stronger and fitter like you have never been before. You've come a long way from that terrifying day 1. You think, in fact you know, that it was all worth it.
