We’ve reduced fat, built muscle, and improved our cardiovascular health.
When we started at Individual Fitness last fall, we were starting to feel the effects of our age. I’d been working full-time and going to school full-time for three full years, and my busy and sedentary lifestyle was starting to catch up with me. Eric has a horrible family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, and bad cholesterol. And SURPRISE! Our son had just informed us that we were about to have our first grandchild. It was time to start thinking about getting and staying healthier if we wanted to be around to play with our grandchildren.
We both thought it might be nice to lose a few pounds and improve our cardiovascular health. Eric wanted to lower his blood pressure, and I wanted to learn how to eat real food in a healthy manner.
Fast forward eleven months to today, and we’re both feeling more confident in the way we look. I even retired most pairs of my longer “old lady shorts” this summer in favor of shorter, more stylish versions. Eric’s catching himself admiring his arms in windows and mirrors that he walks by. We’ve reduced fat, built muscle, and improved our cardiovascular health.
Early on, I noticed that shoveling our decks was suddenly easier. I went from thinking I had no interest in running to running my first 5k. In our assessment tonight, Eric discovered he’d lost nearly 20 pounds and reduced his body fat percentage from 24% to 18.2%! I’ve increased the number of pushups I can do from a measly 9 to an impressive 25.
Making a commitment to be at Individual Fitness twice a week for training has made all the difference. We thought we were in decent shape a year ago, but now we truly know we are!
Thank you, Jim and John, for building a program that works. Thank you, Mike, for keeping us on our toes by catering workouts that hold our interest and keep us challenged. We can’t wait to see what else the future holds for us!

“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.”
