When the people at FT say they will do something, they do it. They call you with follow-ups if you ask a question or make a request, they give advance notice about conditions with the weather, covid, etc. Also, the trainers are people who want to be trainers. They aren't doing this part-time until they find a better gig. They are really passionate about fitness.
