I like the privacy of working in a smaller gym and the custom nature of the fitness program tailored to my level of fitness and goals. I also really like the warm and very professional staff. Finally, as FT is an 8 minute walk from my house, I like the early morning incentive to boost to my metabolism.
The fitness programs are carefully designed for my body and my goals in mind. The staff are very knowledgeable and provide detailed answers to my questions. Everyone is so friendly. It really does feel like family!
I appreciate the specialized approach. Daniel and Stephen do a great job of focusing on what works for me and my issues.
I also appreciate the support and interest in my being successful. At times I think nothing is getting better. Then Daniel or Stephen will share their insight or a statement of encouragement. Makes a world of difference.
The six week check in is awesome. It helps to show me that I am making positive changes. I was ground zero at the start of this process. It will take a long time for me to truly get this body turned around. I can do it!
What's not to like? The trainers are very professional and friendly. They somehow know just how far they can physically "push" me to help achieve my fitness goals without "breaking" me. In other words, the FT trainers physically challenge me to do more, but must also be paying close attention to my grunts, groans, and grimaces to avoid causing any possible injury. Feeling a little soreness the following day is expected, but getting hurt would derail the chances of achieving my fitness goals.
Frankly, I believe the primary reason over-weight people like me avoid going to a gym is simply because a crowded gym has a mix of members having differing fitness levels. Placing my flabby, "before" body in a gym full of much fitter, "after" bodies would make me self-conscious about being out-of-shape. Consequently, I've avoided going to a gym which, predictably, has made me less fit. FT is different -- it is a welcoming, semi-private facility that inherently eliminates any opportunity for me to feel ashamed about my currently over-weight body.
The owner, Stacy, is also very friendly and invests her time to ensure my fitness goals are met. The owner and trainers have done everything possible to ensure I will successfully achieve my fitness goals, so failing would require a deliberate effort on my part.
Bottom line: The Georgetown FT has a winning combination of owner, trainers, and facility that motivate me to work-out. With FT's guidance, I know I will achieve my fitness goals.
Trainers are serious, well schooled, but personable and fun, which obviously makes a tough workout more enjoyable. Everything is very professionally run, from scheduling to workout routines to assessments. Convenient location for us is a major plus.
