I began my weight loss journey 3 years ago shortly after being diagnosed with diabetes. I developed diabetes at 249 lbs., not 250 only 249. I opted for gastric sleeve surgery once the Dr. said it can cure diabetes. I followed all the recommendations as closely as possible. It is no quick fix it is a lot of work and takes daily dedication. I’ve maintained my weight within a few pounds for the past 2 years. Then January 2016 rolled around and like most of us we start to examine our lives. I knew I wasn’t exercising enough and without proper and consistent exercise I might not remain healthy, I lacked motivation. I had the $9.99 a month gym membership where there were plenty of treadmills, fitness equipment, dumbbells, let’s not forget pizza and bagels that, which I don’t understand. The fitness equipment I knew nothing about and was too intimidated to go near. That lack of knowledge, discipline and honestly courage pushed me to look at alternative exercise options. I knew I needed the help of a professional personal trainer.
That search ended very quickly when I came across Individual Finesses website. Everything I read on there, gave me the courage to pay them a visit. Of course I drove in and out of the parking lot the first time but the very next day I parked and went up those stairs. From the moment I walked in I knew I was in the right place. Jim greeted me as if we were old friends. He fully explained the program the philosophy, yes, the cost or as I see it the investment in me. I have been working with John for 5 months and I have received everything I had hoped for and told I would get. I’d like to end by saying the whole team is incredibly supportive, encouraging, and friendly. I am one of Individual Fitness client of the month and honored to have been recognized. Thank you IF.
“What I like most about my program here at IF is the personal approach and understanding of how my medical conditions limit me and require adjustments. The trainers are all professional and push me to achieve attainable results.”
“We feel stronger, more energetic, and proud of the changes we’ve made. Tony and I are so appreciative of the team at IF for motivating us to improve our health and for putting a program in place that we know we can keep up for a very long time.”

“I fully recommend IF and their programs because it works! It challenges you and it makes you feel part of IF. It’s a wonderful team. They motivate you, they are a powerful example, and they have great recommendations for your nutrition.”
“Thanks to IF, I now have a whole new wardrobe without going shopping. I can wear anything in my closet and everything is actually loose or too big. To sum up my experience thus far: 21 pounds lost, 13 inches gone!! They listen to me and that’s how I have achieved the results I have.”
“The staff has made me feel comfortable and welcome...I have worked hard since the middle of January and have lost a lot of weight, and gained a lot of strength. At first I couldn’t do a single push-up. Now I can do three sets of ten. That is a huge step for me. I look forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring.”
“With the combination of my weight and blood pressure where it is, I said ‘That’s it! I need a change in my life!’ [After working with IF]...I am down 26 lbs, nearly 2 inches in my waist, and 1.5 inches in my hips. I have grown physically as well as mentally towards a better me.”
