I would like to tell you about my journey that I am going through, but first need to give you a little history. I was in a horrific car rollover accident over 7 years ago. I lost my best friend/sister in the accident. I was very badly hurt and have had chronic pain ever since. In the last few years I have fallen twice (my balance and stability was not good). I thought this was what I had to deal with the rest of my life. My cousin was worried about me and bought me my first 10 personal lessons at Fitness Together in Mission Hills. I was skeptical at first, but eventually went. Since I started training not only has my core gotten stronger, but I have lost 20 lbs since January. I never thought I could feel this good and lose the extra weight that I have been carrying all these years. The owner Blake Beckcom has been working with me to make me feel as good as I feel today. His wife Gwen has a blog with delicious recipes and calorie counts that I am enjoying. I track my calories daily with the lose it app I have on my phone. I love working in the private setting. They have fabulous trainers that are very knowledgeable and work with people with all different types of problems. I would recommend them highly. They have changed my life and I am so grateful. Suggest you make a change today and go to Fitness Together in Mission Hills on 4019 Goldfinch.
I have trained at Fitness Together for over four years. I cannot say enough good things about these guys. The owners, Blake and Gwen are just good people- very caring and committed to their clients achieving results. My personal trainer is Sean Ryback. He is top notched, very inspiring and motivating. Every workout is challenging. Best of all, Sean and I have begun tracking my progress with weight loss. I'm down ten pounds from the beginning of the year. Give Fitness Together a shot - especially if you dread training in big gyms - and realize that you deserve the personal attention that FT provides.
I've been with FT in Mission Hills now for almost two months. I have been extremely impressed with the professionalism of the staff. They are friendly without being excessively chatty - focusing on the workout - and always upbeat (but not annoyingly so, as can happen sometimes with other trainers). I especially appreciate their ability to stay on time, even at the end of a the day after many clients. The latest I have started a session has literally been no more than 2 or 3 minutes (and I got those minutes back at the end). The space is very clean and functional, and they take care to constantly disinfect after each client. The workouts are challenging and of course tailored to me, and they mix it up quite a bit, keeping it interesting and keeping the learning curve climbing. All the while they push and inspire without yelling or being rude, like you can get in some boot camps. I'd recommend them to anyone who is committed to improving their fitness.
I just tried the initial evaluation at
Fitness Together, and it was very comprehensive! I got my BMI, Body Fat ratio, height & weight, along with explanation of what it all means. The trainers here are very patient and good teachers.
I was able to try out the equipment at my own pace and experience what a personal training session is like. I love the fact that there are private rooms for the sessions. No one watching you!
If it's been a while since you have experienced what it feels like to have a coach teaching you and pushing you to go just a little bit beyond what you feel like doing, you should give Fitness Together a try. I had fun, and felt really good.
I have had several personal trainers in the past---Fitness Together is the real deal! They really care and take time to know my goals. The workout suites are private and that has helped me focus. I am finally getting results--and I must say, it is nice to see my body literally transform now. Thank you Fitness Together.
The people make the difference! The experience of training 1 on 1 is far superior to training alone at a big box gym. Your time is maximized for results. IMHO a personal training, customized for you, is the ONLY way to go. I have trained with Blake, Gwen, Gene & Alyssa. They really know how to motivate in a positive way. I feel better at 49 than I did at 20. Thanks FT.
I recently made the decision to invest some money into MY health and happiness. I recently turned 40 and I wanted to look good PERIOD; not just look good for my age. FT helped me reach my goals with diet and exercise by giving me the skills and motivation I needed to become healthier and happier. Whatever your golas are, I believe that FT can help you. Their one on one training really worked for me and I am beyond happy with my success.
A transformational joy.
Working out at Fitness Together in Mission Hills has been a tremendously positive experience. From the first conversation I had over the phone with Blake, to each of the workouts with all of the trainers, I have enjoyed my time and am extremely grateful for having found this group. Just a little background on why I chose FT in Mission Hills – I am a workaholic and excuse expert. Over the last few years, as my work responsibilities increased, my physical health decreased. Once having been happy and excited to get to the gym, I became increasingly avoidant – sometimes with good reason, such as “I’m exhausted - over the course of three days I have slept seven hours,” and sometimes without good reason, “I’m not going to work out today – there are too many sweaty people at the gym.” I’ve tried every yoga class, every Pilates studio, every spin class, Zumba, what have you. I’ve belonged to expensive and not as expensive gyms. I’ve worked out with trainers and followed my own regime. All of those things were fine and worked on some levels, but they just weren’t sticky enough for me. And over the years, I abandoned all of them, my body paying the price. I came to FT feeling years older than I am, and realizing that I was, for the first time in my life, completely lost at the gym.
Blake and Gwen’s team helped me out of my self-induced fitness confusion and transformed my mind and body, helping me to again feel confident, strong, capable and healthy. From the various healthy snacks for your post-work out refuel, to the ultra-clean, well-taken-care-of cardio machines, there for you to conveniently warm up before your session, it is obvious from the minute you walk in the door how much pride this team takes in ensuring a safe, fun, clean and effective workout. They are extremely flexible and have worked around my silly work and travel schedule, helping me fit my work outs in at times that are digestible for me. I cannot even begin to describe how important and helpful their flexibility has been. They make the experience fun, easy and positive. It’s a workout I always look forward to. It’s an experience I always enjoy. And it’s a team I am always feel grateful knowing. Each trainer – Blake, Gene, Allison, Alyssa and Cat – has taken the careful time to get to know me, my boundaries and my strengths, and to help me achieve the best results for me. After each session, I feel stronger, healthier, slimmer and more energized. Over the course of a few months, I know I am stronger, healthier, slimmer and more energized. The workouts are challenging and fun, interesting every time, effective every time. It’s all because of this team of expert, passionate, caring trainers who have my best interest in mind. And here’s the added bonus, these aren’t just smart, educated and driven health professionals, these are great people who you actually enjoy seeing every week. They truly care about you both as a client and as a person.
If you have the opportunity to check out FT in Mission Hills – do it! It will do all of the great and wonderful things for your body and… it will make you feel better. I am so lucky to have found Blake and Gwen’s team. It’s been the best gift I’ve given myself and has been more than worth it. Can't wait for my next workout!
Working out at Fitness Together in Mission Hills has truly upgraded my life! I have been going there for two years and have seen slow and steady results that I know I can maintain. My trainer Alison is very attentive, knows what she is doing and we still have a good time with the workouts. She has added boxing to my workouts, something I've never liked, and I now look forward to those workouts the most. Gwen and Blake are very caring people who truly want the best for everyone. The atmosphere is positive and lively and the personal attention is top notch!
The "Biggest Winner" !!!!!!. I have been training with Alison at Fitness Together for over a year and love the one-on-one training I have received. Blake and Gwen run a first class personal fitness facility that really care about their clients. This facility provides you with all tools and training you need to be the "Biggest Winner" in meeting all your fitness goals!
