    August 2020 Client of the Month

    I had always been active and athletic, but in my mid-thirties I hit a point where I was in the worst shape of my life! There’s a picture my husband took of me in the summer of 2019 on a hike up Mt. Cardigan. It was a wake-up call - I did not like what I saw or how I felt. I needed a change. I was not disciplined or educated enough to do it on my own. I needed a guide. Since joining Individual Fitness, I feel 1000% better. I am leaner and stronger. I have energy to do the activities I want to do. I sleep better at night. I have less stress and anxiety. I have endurance for harder activities like hiking and skiing.

    IF Client of the Month
    I have wanted to interact with a personal trainer for several years, but I had trouble finding the right fit. I was impressed with IF’s philosophy and testimonials as described on the website and during my initial visit. I had been seeking someone who would really view me as an individual and listen to my concerns, and IF offered that. With my IF personal trainer Mike’s encouragement, I started a 90-day fitness challenge on March 1 st . I had no idea that I would end up completing this challenge in a lockdown! That sure made it interesting. The challenge had several components, and I was able to crush all of them:
    Weight: my goal was to lose ....
