"Thanks to the combination of Fitness Together and my weekly mileage, I’m tackling hills with more power and running stronger."*

I bought a sleeveless shirt. On purpose. More than one. And it’s because of my husband’s bad knees. He knew he needed to work on strength training to help him prepare for possible knee surgery, so he researched numerous facilities and decided on Fitness Together. Twice a week, he would come home sweaty and drained, and knowing the workouts were working in his favor. The idea of gaining muscle and strength was intriguing to me, especially on Tuesday, March 3, 2015.

It was on my calendar, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it until I read on Facebook that someone got in and that reminded me… maybe I should check to see if I did too. That’s when I found out that in just eight months I was going to run the largest marathon in the world, the TCS New York City Marathon, and I knew I wanted to do more than just pound the pavement.

I was paired with my husband’s trainer, who changes up my workouts each week. I never know what seemingly HUGE weight will be handed to me in his even HUGE-ER paw, and how many lunges and wall balls I’ll be told to do – and each time I’m amazed at what I actually CAN do, thanks to Fitness Together coaching.*

It didn’t take long before it started… The first time was from a stranger. “Excuse me,” he quietly asked. “Do you mind if I ask you where you work out?” I could have kissed him. Then later from a male co-worker, “What are you doing?! Your arms are buff!” * Another co-worker, “You looked pretty fit walking across the street just now.”* And from a stranger, “I can tell you’re a runner, look at your arms.”

I look forward to the trainers cheering me on during my assessment as I try to do-just-one-more rep. I look forward to the one-on-one assistance I get, even with the gym slang, which cracks my trainer up because half the time I don’t know what he’s describing. I require a demo.

November 1, 2015 is marathon day. Thanks to the combination of Fitness Together and my weekly mileage, I’m tackling hills with more power and running stronger.* My goal isn’t speed. It’s endurance. I plan to cross the finish line stronger than my two previous marathons. This time wearing a sleeveless tech shirt, naturally.

"I look good! Great in fact. But better yet, I feel good about myself."

Playing sports my entire life never led me to working out. Back then, women ran a mile then started a game. So, I have never, actually, worked out.

Boom mid-life…

Gyms are intimidating, clothing gets intimidating, social norm in the facilities become intolerable. It's too much.

But one day I trusted some guy on the phone, walked in, and have been loyal ever since…

As they have been to me.

In my almost two years there they have seen me go from being overweight, to major reconstructive surgery due to complications with late age childbirth, to broken bones due to outside attributes, and yet every workout is thought out, sincere, planned, successful... and, yes… awesome!*

Broken arm? No worries, they'll work around it.*

And, yes, I look good! Great in fact. But better yet, I feel good about myself.*

I cannot say enough about Fitness Together. This is a hidden gem. I almost don't want to give my secret away, but if it helps anyone who is feeling bad, isolated, and even bored... just go. Get your spunk back!

You're honestly in the best hands and care. And care is the most important.

"...I made the first appointment at Fitness Together and haven’t looked back! To say I am hooked is an understatement. I learned quickly there was something special at Fitness Together."

I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty decent athlete. I’ve competed in sprint triathlons, half marathons and other smaller distance running races for the past 15 years, and always maintained a good work ethic strength training at the gym. However, nothing quite prepared me for what Fitness Together would bring to my life.

I first heard of Fitness Together about a year ago from a friend who just had a baby. She looked amazing. She was so happy with her results and raved about the trainers at Fitness Together. I had to give this a try – especially since I was going to be married in five short months! My goal was to look the best I ever have for my wedding day. I wanted to trim up and look toned and strong. So, I made the first appointment at Fitness Together and haven’t looked back! To say I am hooked is an understatement. I learned quickly there was something special at Fitness Together. From the initial consultation to my last session this past week I continue to be impressed with the staff. Let’s face it – you can have a nice, clean, state of the art facility but without the right trainer your success will be limited. Not the case here. They are (and continue to be) extremely professional, knowledgeable and incredibly down to earth, making it so easy to walk in every session, be myself and communicate my goals. Through consistent one-on-one training sessions where I was pushed (as requested) just outside my comfort zone and consistent healthy eating habits (with the watchful eye of my trainer) I lost 8 lbs., decreased my body fat by 4% and lost a total of 6 inches.* I felt so beautiful the day of my wedding --- goal achieved!!   

I’ve been so happy with my results training at Fitness Together, so much so that I’ve continued training long after my wedding (last September). I adjusted my goal to be stronger in hopes that at some point that we’d be lucky enough to start a family. At 37 years old and 16 weeks pregnant, I am so proud to say, I have never felt stronger and healthier*, and I will forever be grateful to my Fitness Together Family. I can only hope that others will experience the same as me, and take advantage of the fantastic operation they have at Fitness Together.

"The one-on-one attention was amazing, and the results were, too. In less than 12 weeks I lost more than 15 inches in size, improved my core strength (and shape) dramatically, created definition in my arms and legs that I never knew I could have."*

I have exercised all of my life; running, cycling, swimming, lifting weights and even trying a personal trainer. Sure, I was in ok shape, but I never saw any noticeable results and still worried constantly about how much or how little I ate.  I felt like the definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result!

In January of 2007 I started working out at Fitness Together, South Park.  From the beginning I knew that these workouts were different.  They were truly unique, geared specifically to me and my goals, and included exercises that I could never have done on my own. The one-on-one attention was amazing, and the results were, too. In less than 12 weeks I lost more than 15 inches in size, improved my core strength (and shape) dramatically, created definition in my arms and legs that I never knew I could have, and even lost a few pounds along the way.* Hooray for the revved up metabolism! I feel incredible.* I am more energetic, happier, and able to do anything I want to at home, in the yard, or for fun.* A friend asked recently if I would go back to working out on my own, now that I’ve “learned how.” My answer was “No way…I’m hooked!”  Fitness Together has ended the insanity. I’m a convert for life!

"I can honestly say that I look forward to every single session because of the thoughtful encouragement I receive, the fabulous results I am getting; and it's just a fun place to go. I did everything they asked me to do and lost 20 pounds in 14 weeks!"*

One day about 4 months ago I saw a co-worker that I had not seen in several months and noticed she had lost a lot of weight.* As we talked she told me how she did  it with Fitness Together. Her comment of, "It's the best thing I have ever done for myself," stuck with me.* Over the years I had not been able to find a routine that consistently worked for me to keep my weight down. So I spontaneously contacted a nearby Fitness Together location. They suggested that I come in for a free fitness consultation. Little did I know, that day was the first day for a huge change in my life.* They explained how their program works - a combination of workouts, healthy diet and accountability. We outlined my goals and a general program. I now do a workout session with them 3 times a week, and run 3 days a week. I keep a journal of what I eat. They review my journal with me and help me make better choices in food type as well as portion size; as a result I give a lot more consideration to what I eat! I did everything they asked me to do and lost 20 pounds in 14 weeks.*

It has been great for me. I have been surprised that I love going to the workout sessions. It's not just an exercise program to me; it's also a very personal relationship with a group of individuals that has helped me find a healthy lifestyle while having fun doing it. And the more weight I lose, the more incentive I have to maintain a good diet. It's always a celebration when I drop a pants size or need a new hole in my belt! It has surpassed all my expectations and I feel great. It was an exciting day for me when one of my trainers casually told me I was looking lean. I know, it's hard to believe, but I can honestly say that I look forward to every single session because of the thoughtful encouragement I receive, the fabulous results I am getting; and it is just a fun place to go. My only regret has been why I did not find them sooner!

"Thanks to Fitness Together, I was able to lose 26.4lbs., decrease my bodyfat percentage by 9.0% and lose a total of 16.25 inches."*

I came to Fitness Together as an unhealthy and overstressed person. I was in a downwards spiral and needed a lifestyle course correction. I also knew that I needed some hard-core support to turn around. My initial intent was to get a “jump-start” and then transition into a routine on my own. It was during one intense workout where I was on the last circuit and struggling to finish when the trainer looked at me and said “at this point it’s all mental, not physical” and that’s when it hit me, this was not just a program to get in shape, I had found a great outlet to manage stress and work-out my mental muscles too. I love showing up and having the entire workout pre-planned and ready to go. I enjoy the varied workouts to keep things interesting and fresh. I like the solitude of a private environment, but more importantly I value the tough love no-nonsense push from the trainer to get me to the next level of performance.

The past year has been a journey and a lifestyle shift – the early results provided the momentum to make lifestyle changes that included eating habits, cardio workouts on my own time, and ensuring that I kept to a routine of cardio and strength exercises  when I’m on business travel 2-3 times/month. My journey continues as I relocate for my job from the Charlotte area to Atlanta GA where I plan to connect with the local Fitness Together for continued success.

"...I decided to give Fitness Together a try. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!"*

I first heard about Fitness Together from a friend who had been training at one of the studios. She kept saying how great her experience was and she was looking amazing after losing weight since starting training with a Fitness Together personal trainer.* I had gained weight because I had not worked out in a while and decided that I needed help. With a little push from my friend I decided to give Fitness Together a try. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!*

From the moment I walked in the door I knew that something was different about Fitness Together. This was not just your regular gym. I was instantly greeted by smiling trainers and friendly clients who were warming up on a variety of cardio machines in the lobby. Even though I had been active in my younger years, I was nervous because it had been so long since I had exercised with any consistency, but my trainer was patient with me and was able to push me just enough so that I was tired at the end of my session but still left feeling a real sense of accomplishment. I knew I wanted to come back!

Not much has changed since that first session. The trainers still greet me with a smile and the facilities are always clean and organized. I look forward to working out each and every time and now commit to three training sessions each week. I have built great relationships with my trainers who feel as much like family as my real family do. They really know how to program so that I am reaching my goals and constantly change my workouts so that I don’t get bored – I never know what to expect but each time I work out I surprise myself with what I can do.

After just a few short weeks I was already feeling the benefits of my training* but it wasn’t until my son got engaged to be married that I truly reaped the benefits of personal training at Fitness Together. I knew I wanted to look great in my formal (sleeveless!) dress on the day of the wedding and my trainers really helped me to lose weight and tone up my arms so that I felt confident in my dress. The workouts have been vital but the nutrition guidance was also a key component to my results. In less than a year I was able to lose more than 25lbs., 7% body fat and more than 15 total inches, including 4 inches around my waist.*

It meant so much to me to feel beautiful and confident on the day of my son’s wedding and I know that I couldn’t have done it without the knowledge, encouragement and friendship of my trainers at Fitness Together.
