Personal Training Success Stories

Get Inspired, Get Results. *Individual exercise results may vary.

When I first started, my goal was to lose weight. But that has evolved into a lifestyle change. Never realized how it fits together so well... Eating "more", and better, while strength training, could bring you closer to your goal than just "dieting." 

I've seen really great results and it's only because Jeremy, Logan and Carly pushed me harder every week to do better and more. I love the results every time I look in the mirror and every time the weights increase and the push-ups and crunches get easier.* 

Very good motivation! Love the Fitness Together Team!

After neglecting my weight, mindless eating went to 275lbs from 217lbs in 5 years. At 60 years old I made a New Years resolution, "Quit making excuses, get help to get in shape and learn nutrition." The Fitness Together team makes me be accountable. The results are showing! I have lost 20 pounds so far!

P.S. My FT team rocks!

I joined FT with the hope of losing weight, like most do - but got so much more. The trainers are so encouraging that I find myself looking forward to sessions. I accomplish more because they are knowledgeable and determined to see me succeed. Each session is different and that keeps things interesting and fun. I eat better, sleep better and feel better because I am working with the best! The best part is, YOU CAN TOO!”

"I joined Fitness Together five years ago, and since then, I have lost more than 100 pounds*, I'm happier, definitely healthier and I'm in the best shape I've been in more than 20 years.

Fitness Together has the right recipe for success in my opinion. Their ONE CLIENT + ONE TRAINER + ONE GOAL process ensures every workout I do is unique and custom made for my individual goals. The session is me and my trainer, so the entire focus is on me.

When I started the Nutrition Together program, my main goal was to simply build on my knowledge of healthy eating habits, and gain a level of accountability for the types of food I put in my body.

While exercise has been a cornerstone of the results I have seen, proper eating and nutrition has been the spark. I realized that all the working out, lifting weights and running wouldn't let my true results shine through if I still had poor eating habits. Now, I look at food as fuel for my body, and like everyone, I have my cheat meals, but in moderation.”

It was August of 2017 when I first started Fitness Together. I had reached the point that when I looked in the mirror, I did not like what I saw. I didn’t like how I felt physically and even more importantly, I didn’t like how I felt mentally. I had driven by FT numerous times and always wondered about it. I finally said I was going to check it out. I sat with Cailin that first day and I pretty much told her my life story. I was, at that point, hooked.

I have been coming to FT ever since. A year and a half year later, I am down 30 pounds, several inches, gained so much strength both physically and mentally. I have learned so much about nutrition, which I believe was my biggest road block.  It has been a slow and steady weight loss but that is what I wanted. I wanted to make life changes and not drop weight in some quick, fad way. I’d like to lose at least 20 more. And when I do, I know it will be long term because I’m being taught the right way to do it.

Joining FT has honestly been one of the best things I have ever done for myself. It is truly soooo much more than losing weight and looking better. Recently, I have had a big setback in my life. Coming to FT and confiding in all of the personal trainers has been a saving grace for me. Every single trainer here, authentically cares about you, not only in meeting physical goals, but in your overall being in life. I can say, without a doubt, that the trainers at FT are a group of people that I have come to trust whole heartedly. And I don’t trust easily. Besides being highly knowledgeable in their field, every trainer is motivating, personal, practical and FUN!   I call FT one of my safe places. I love my results. I love the people. I love that I can be myself with no judgement. I love that I took that step back in August of 2017. Again, hands down, one of the best things I ever did for myself.

"The trainers at Fitness Together genuinely care about me and my success.  They have taken the time to get to know me and what goals I have set for myself.  They are supportive and encouraging.  They push me each and every time I step through the door.  Each trainer has his or her own unique style so every session is different, and I am never bored with a workout.  Since joining Fitness Together, not only have I lost an additional 60 pounds and 33 inches*, but my confidence and self-esteem have skyrocketed.  I am proud of my accomplishments thus far and excited to see just how far I can go.  There are now things on my bucket list that I never dreamed I would be able to do.  The investment I made into FT has truly paid off."

"After a significant ankle injury, followed by months of inactivity, poor eating habits and weight gain, I was becoming increasingly more frustrated with how I felt about myself, which had then started to impact my job and my family. At that point, I knew I needed a lifestyle change that would prevent me from spiraling downward even further. Attempts to lose weight on my own were unsuccessful due to my busy schedule and lack of consistency. Joining Fitness Together gave me the accountability that I needed to keep me motivated. The trainers geared my workouts to accommodate me during the healing process and have since continued to push me forward to fulfill my goals. The Nutrition sessions have also helped me make the dietary changes that are imperative for a long-term healthy lifestyle. The trainers have been the driving force behind my success and I cannot thank them enough.

 

With the motivation of the Fitness Together staff, I have truly seen the results that I desired. Since joining Fitness Together over 10 months ago, I have seen a significant improvement in my endurance and strength as well as a significant improvement in my personal self-image. I have lost 16 lbs and over 10% body fat since joining Fitness Together, and I look and feel better than I have felt in years.*"

    When I decided to take ownership of my life, I knew I had to start eating and moving differently. My FT journey started at my pace and each week I'm amazed at what I'm able to accomplish. Carly's team of trainers keep it fun and motivating. They are the best at what they do; customizing each workout and always challenging me to do more that I think I can.

    I am stronger and more energetic that I was in my 30's! Following their Nutrition Program (and without dieting) I'm able to make good choices that fit my lifestyle, while still losing weight. Their enthusiasm is contagious...I love it here at FT!!

“I have tried for years to get in shape and lose weight and be healthy.  Starting with personal trainers at local gyms, organized sports and even at-home workouts like P90X and Insanity. None of those gave me the results I was looking for until Fitness Together.  From the energetic trainers to the science behind the exercise program, it always keeps me coming back and pushing myself to reach a new goal.”*

I began training with Fitness Together in June.  Since then, I have experienced great progress and results.  My energy level and confidence have really soared.

The one-on-one sessions are the key to my success.  I have accomplished exercises I never thought I could, for example a 50 pound kettle bell squat and planks with a 25 pound plank on my back! I owe it all to the trainers at Fitness Together.

Since working out at Fitness Together my wife and I feel so much stronger, healthier, and more accountable. I feel more confident, I've learned more about my body and it's strength.  My golf game has benefited and I can feel the strength in my bis, tris, pecs, quads, and legs.  My wife feels stronger with her nursing job too. Both Mollie and I have learned about eating more healthy as well. Cailin, Kalie, Sara, and Nate at FT are fun, innovative, and educated.  We could not ask for a better bunch of folks to help us in this journey. Thank you Fitness Together!

I have really enjoyed my time training at FT. Each trainer has really listened to what my goals are and they devise programs to help me meet those goals.  As a result, I have more stamina and energy. I truly enjoy how each session is different and challenges various muscles. I have had a great experience with FT and look forward to a long relationship with my trainers!

All the trainers are wonderful to work with! The workouts are always different so it's never boring- let's be honest, some exercises are more fun than others. Everything has been targeted to our goals so they push and encourage us to reach those goals! 

We are getting more toned, building stamina, strength, and losing weight.  For me, one of the best benefits is I'm sleeping better and not so tired all the time! 

Thank you Fitness Together Medina!

Over the past few months, Fitness Together has helped me get back in shape and rebuild and improve my strength significantly. I am more energized and not as tired. My physical appearance has improved and I am happier because of it!

The trainers have pushed me to better myself and work hard at each session in ways that I would not have if I was by myself.  I enjoy working out with the trainers because they're always so friendly and helpful day in and day out!

It has been an enjoyable, enlightening and a hard-working experience I have had at Fitness Together. With all the ups and downs with medical issues and tribulations, the ladies and gentleman over the last 2 years have always been adaptable, gracious, kind and above all supportive in my journey here. Exercise has built my confidence, my knowledge on good nutrition and strength training as well as having the energy to get through each day without tiredness and pain. My accountability to myself has been lacking but the trainers at FT are always encouraging, teaching and uplifting. Overall, this time at FT has been a worthwhile expenditure, and a great place to work out and learn. They also give me the push when I need a nudge in the right direction. They really are the nicest, most caring and supportive trainers I have come across and for that I will always be thankful.

I actually contacted Fitness Together a couple of years ago and had an assessment completed. Family, work, and life prolonged my decision to commit to Fitness Together until October 2018. My pants were becoming tighter and I knew it was time to make a change. Since joining, my pants are not as tight, I feel stronger and my girls get to watch me work out (which motivates them to be active). I love working with all the trainers because they motivate me and push me further than I would go on my own. Right now, that's what I need to get myself active after being away from a gym since my twin girls were born over 4 years ago!

"We both love going to Fitness Together!  This is the perfect environment for us, we can work out together and get the personalized attention and accountability that comes with working with a trainer.  All of the trainers at Fitness Together - Medina are very friendly and supportive and have been a huge help to us on our fitness journey.  Being able to work with different trainers keeps our workouts fresh.  We have only been going for two months but are already seeing the results on the scale, in the way our clothes fit, and in our strength and flexibility.  We feel much better too thanks to combining our personal training with the Nutrition Together program!  We have our energy and confidence back.  But most importantly, we are proud of ourselves and of each other!"

Prior to joining Fitness Together I was unhappy and unhealthy. I was not one to work out in public, so I became one of the millions of people who fell for infomercial scams. I spent crazy amounts of money on “magic pills, magic wraps, magic bands” and so on. Needless to say, none of the “magic” actually worked.Finally, my worst day came, I was getting ready for class and my “fat pants” were officially tight. It was time for a change. I went to Fitness Together for an initial meeting where I was told something that changed my life. Erin told me that I had to look at this as a lifestyle change, not a diet or workout kick. At my first assessment I could not even complete five pushups, but hey, I guess you have to start somewhere. Today, I am proud to say I go to my Pack sessions four days a week, can do 54 pushups, and for the first time in my life, I am excited to go bikini shopping!  Fitness Together not only changed my body, but it changed my life.*

I have been working out at Fitness Together for about 6 months and I love it. For years I have avoided gyms because I was afraid that I didn't know what to do or to be seen around fit people. From the first day of walking into the Medina location, I felt comfortable. The workouts are different every time and I am amazed by what the trainers push me to do and that I am able to do it! My strength, energy, and confidence has increased. I am looking forward to what the next few months will bring!

I made my Fitness Together consultation appointment desperately hoping for help to lose weight and to be able to use my knees again. I am entirely too young to be using a cane, but I was dependent on it when I started with FT. As a result, I was considering weight loss surgery. I am now cane free and losing weight and I attribute my success to the trainers who keep each work out interesting and adjust it to my strengths and weaknesses. The nutrition sessions have also been invaluable. One reason I had such a hard time losing weight on my own was because I didn't understand how all the ingredients in food affect my body. Using MyFitnessPal and reviewing my meals in nutrition sessions has helped me get on the right track. I didn't think I'd make it through the first workout. The trainers are so encouraging and willing to work with me that I am now able to do workouts I never thought I would be capable of. I can't thank the Fitness Together team enough for where I'm at and look forward to where I will be this time next year!
