The Peak Zone program is awesome. At 11 months in the program I have lost a good amount of weight, and, more importantly, I feel in much better shape. The program keeps you interested with different work out phases and the trainers are all excellent. The only reason I wouldn't score this a 10 out of 10 is the ongoing cost commitment. The value is there in the benefits of the program and what you get, but for some people the cost will be prohibitive to joining. As with any exercise choice you get out what you put in, however, peak zone has all the tools in place to help you succeed in a way that just joining your local gym and hoping for the best will never compete with.
What i love about Peak Zone Fitness;
Personal trainers who are actually well trained and who are THERE every single session for me all year long ... no extra charge, no limit on number of hours.
VO2 and basal metabolism testing every 2 months
Nutrition planning individualized
Seeing my heart rate on the board at all times and getting an email printout of my progress 30 minutes after i leave
I am about to sign up for my 5th year!!!!!
I felt like the “trainer” I was dealing with was really young and inexperienced. While he may know a few things about fitness and nutrition, he just seemed really inexperienced in dealing with people. I mean, he didn’t do anything wrong, he just doesn’t seem to have great people skills. Just really awkward and kind of got on my nerves... There are some things you just can’t teach.
Also, no one cleaned or wiped down machines/equipment during or post workout which signaled to me it doesn’t get done throughout the day in between classes and that’s just unacceptable.
I was totally turned off by my assessment experience and my then by my first attempt to workout...
I don’t know if I’ll be back except to cancel my membership. Wish I had my money back.
My complaint continues to be the lack of enforcement regarding clients signing-up. If a class is full, then individuals who did not sign up should be forced to take the next class and not take precedence over the few members who do sign up. If management is not willing to enforce this, then perhaps they should get rid of the "requirement" that clients sign up and just have clients come on a "first come, first serve" basis.
During the colder months, there are not enough hooks in the gym for clients to hang their jackets, etc. on .
I would like to see the lighter, weighted body bars come back, at least as part of the equipment available. It makes it easier if you require different weights to do various exercises and have to change weights within a relatively short period of time.
I love the workouts. The trainers are tough but also very motivating! I love that they really work with you to achieve your own personal goals, but also give you the extra nudge when your having an off day or are ready to increase a weight etc. I also love that each workout time tends to have the usual suspects attend. I love walking in and seeing my core workout buddies who help encourage me and push me! It's a GREAT community of people!
Kelsey hands down is THE BEST childcare worker I have ever seem in a gym. She is caring, compassionate and fun, but also keeps the kids in check! My kids love her! She is a true gem!
