A transformational joy. Working out at Fitness Together in Mission Hills has been a tremendously positive experience. From the first conversation I had over the phone with Blake, to each of the workouts with all of the trainers, I have enjoyed my time and am extremely grateful for having found this group. Just a little background on why I chose FT in Mission Hills – I am a workaholic and excuse expert. Over the last few years, as my work responsibilities increased, my physical health decreased. Once having been happy and excited to get to the gym, I became increasingly avoidant – sometimes with good reason, such as “I’m exhausted - over the course of three days I have slept seven hours,” and sometimes without good reason, “I’m not going to work out today – there are too many sweaty people at the gym.” I’ve tried every yoga class, every Pilates studio, every spin class, Zumba, what have you. I’ve belonged to expensive and not as expensive gyms. I’ve worked out with trainers and followed my own regime. All of those things were fine and worked on some levels, but they just weren’t sticky enough for me. And over the years, I abandoned all of them, my body paying the price. I came to FT feeling years older than I am, and realizing that I was, for the first time in my life, completely lost at the gym.
Blake and Gwen’s team helped me out of my self-induced fitness confusion and transformed my mind and body, helping me to again feel confident, strong, capable and healthy. From the various healthy snacks for your post-work out refuel, to the ultra-clean, well-taken-care-of cardio machines, there for you to conveniently warm up before your session, it is obvious from the minute you walk in the door how much pride this team takes in ensuring a safe, fun, clean and effective workout. They are extremely flexible and have worked around my silly work and travel schedule, helping me fit my work outs in at times that are digestible for me. I cannot even begin to describe how important and helpful their flexibility has been. They make the experience fun, easy and positive. It’s a workout I always look forward to. It’s an experience I always enjoy. And it’s a team I am always feel grateful knowing. Each trainer – Blake, Gene, Allison, Alyssa and Cat – has taken the careful time to get to know me, my boundaries and my strengths, and to help me achieve the best results for me. After each session, I feel stronger, healthier, slimmer and more energized. Over the course of a few months, I know I am stronger, healthier, slimmer and more energized.* The workouts are challenging and fun, interesting every time, effective every time. It’s all because of this team of expert, passionate, caring trainers who have my best interest in mind. And here’s the added bonus, these aren’t just smart, educated and driven health professionals, these are great people who you actually enjoy seeing every week. They truly care about you both as a client and as a person.
If you have the opportunity to check out FT in Mission Hills – do it! It will do all of the great and wonderful things for your body and… it will make you feel better. I am so lucky to have found Blake and Gwen’s team. It’s been the best gift I’ve given myself and has been more than worth it. Can't wait for my next workout!
