I teach American Literature at Mt. Holyoke College. I've always had a regular exercise regime, whether running on the track or doing cardio machines in the gym because I have one of those tough bodies: I can gain weight by looking at food and it takes months to undo that glance.
When I saw the Fitness Together window for the first time, I was intrigued, but I knew that I didn't have time. At that time, I had a long daily commute. After a bout with pneumonia I knew I needed to get stronger and start working closer to home. On to Fitness Together.
My experience has been terrific. The training staff is superb! These people know their jobs. They understand my tough body and have helped me to make it stronger. I've lost weight, gained strength and confidence in my appearance. Why, a woman I hadn't seen in over a year called my name in the grocery -- not sure it was me. "Gayle," she said, "you're a shadow of your former self."
Now that felt really, really good.*
