I joined the Fitness Firm when it first opened in 1998. At that time, I was working and mostly did the classes after work and on Saturdays. Occasionally I had a trainer show me how to use the equipment so I had a balanced workout.
I am retired now and have had a personal trainer Diana Cummings for the past 7 years. I work out with Diana twice a week and she keeps me motivated and changes up the routine so I am never bored. I work with a trainer because it is important as we age to work on our core, balance, and strength.
I finally managed to get my husband Jim to join about 4 years ago and he agrees that working out helps keep you stronger and more flexible.
The Fitness Firm has a friendly family atmosphere and I would encourage people to join to stay healthy and happy.Betty Phelps
I am a social person. I believe that most people work more effectively as part of a team than they would in isolation. I also think that working as a part of a team increases the chances of achieving your goals. It is for these ideas that I have always enjoyed my membership at The Fitness Firm. From the receptionists, to the physiotherapists, to the trainers, to the owners, I have always felt like a part of a team. The atmosphere at the gym is consistently welcoming, comfortable, and professional. A gym should be more than simply a collection of weights, machines, and programs. Rather, it is the people that make a gym successful. I believe that it is the people at The Fitness Firm who are responsible for the gym’s success, and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.Mike Canham
I joined the Fitness Firm when it opened its doors over 20 years ago. I enjoyed participating in the various group fitness classes. The instructors made the classes enjoyable and a lot of fun. Workouts in the main gym have brought hours of enjoyment and satisfaction, as well as a list of people I have met and consider to be workout buddies and friends. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to use different services offered such as personal training and physiotherapy. I like the Fitness Firm, I feel it has a family, friendly atmosphere.Bev Warwick
