I can't say enough about Fitness Together! I'm a 54 year old woman who needed to lose weight (notice I said "needed") in order to look and feel better and be healthy. I really liked the idea of working out one-on-one with my own trainer in a private studio as opposed to being in a large class, or even with a personal trainer in the middle of a big gym. And at FT, there is nutritional support as well. You get to use a great online tool with exceptional personal attention to tweaking your diet so that you eat optimally for weight loss and good nutrition (they don't sell special food or vitamins). But obviously the biggest thing here would be the trainers, and believe me, they really know their stuff. They are by your side for the entire session, training and educating you for correct form, and providing constantly changing exercises that tone your entire body the right (and most effective) way. To me, this is priceless and something that most of us can't get from a book or from watching a video. I've lost over 50 lbs* and am more toned and stronger than I was in my twenties - and I thoroughly enjoy the compliments and other positive feedback I've been getting. I never thought I would ever wear something sleeveless again - and now I can't wait for summer and tank tops! And one last thing - I've discovered my inner athlete! Who knew I'd be kayaking, hiking mountains, or running 5Ks with all the other active and fit people out there?! FT is truly one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. I will never go back to my old ways because being (and looking) fit is way too much fun!
