All the trainers at Fitness Together Amherst are friendly, unintimidating and sensitive to my needs, never pushing too hard but pushing more than I would on my own. They offer great advice and are very knowledgeable about physiology - in fact, when I had a problem with my shoulder for months their diagnosis of the problem was a lot more accurate than my PCP's (I've since switched doctors!)
I also like their cancellation policy, oddly enough: you must cancel at least 12 hours in advance of a session, which for me translates into going in even when I am not having a good day and just don't feel like working out - and I always feel better afterwards!
Friendly trainers with great expertise. They listen to what you want to work on, and are clear about what to do with each movement. Supportive and encouraging. Keep track of what you have been working on. Consistency between trainers. Beautiful flowers!
I liked the concept of working each time with a single trainer and primarily a single goal.
Also, the several different trainers I worked with were consistent in their programs and lists of exercises so that I felt individually dealt with.
The 45-minute period is an appropriate time span and I learned something each time. I also enjoyed each of the individual trainers and built up an excellent relationship with the woman I worked with longest during my 24-session signup period.
Friendly, knowledgeable, fun, and flexible (e.g., when I decline to do the exercise suggested, the trainers always have multiple other exercises to suggest! :-) ). In sum, great trainers. I am definitely in better shape than when I started almost two years ago. With only two workout rooms, only challenge is getting appointments that work well with ones schedule.
Keep up the good work Fitness Together!
Feels personalized. I walk out exhausted but proud of myself. I never feel like I am being asked to do more than I am capable of, even if the trainers are more confident than I am in my abilities. I am grateful for their very positive attention.
The personal attention, professional approach. I feel communication is a priority and the trainers are well prepared to work with you. They are able to work around any limitations you may have and give positive feedback as you train. They are also a great group of individuals and make coming to FT a pleasure.
