I've had three Silver Sneakers Fitness instructors, two at another (much larger) gym. Jennifer, at RetroFitness, is the best thing there ever was. She yells at us every once in a while but her rapport with us is so wonderful that we love it. In fact, at least one of three guys will yell at her once or twice every class, 'We love you. Jennifer!" even as we're moaning in near exhaustion. And we, men and women, mean it. She knows, incidentally exactly how much she's pushing us and IS very careful about not pushing us too hard. I have a right wrist that has caused problems in the past and seeing me do "on-the-chair pushups," she came over to make sure I was all right. I could swear she almost had tears in her eyes. Well, she probably didn't, but that's how caring she is.
Bottom line: We deeply appreciate Jennifer for her kindness but even more for what a truly gifted and knowledgable instructor she is, in fitness training but in very peaceful, meditative "cooling-down yoga," too. There might be a class that's not too big once in a while (just 12? rarely) but don't lose her. She's a real gift.
My experience with Retro Fitness has been great. I have recommended to my son who did join and have noting but good things to say about the gym and the staff. It’s a clean, friendly and very positive place to work out. My results have been superb with Team, classes and personal training
