Fitness Motivation Story

I just wanted to thank you so much during this holiday. I found Summit when I was bringing my mother in for a splint adjustment. That day was the open house in August. As I waited for my mother I was noticing all the equipment. I’ve always have been into sports growing up and liked the gyms. Things started changing as I became older and injured my back. Later that day I came back for the open house, I already had called to set up a time to meet so I could see what could be offered to me. I met you and even with that first meeting I knew I was doing something right for me. I also won a free training session.

I was so out of shape. I started working with you and even though I can’t move well the next day (do to the sore muscles) I have a smile on my face. I have gained so much energy and strength already. There are time I want to quit but your energy pulls me through. I actually look forward to our workouts. I am able to talk to you about many different topics, usually loose count during an exercise, but that is why I love it. I have had other trainers in the past but then it felt like work and soon I did quit. With you I find myself looking forward to our next session.

My mother has also noticed a difference, she stated the other day how much more I am doing and how I am able to move better. I love how you change our sessions to keep things new and interesting too. This also keeps me motivated. I just signed up for 20 more sessions because of you. You keep me motivated, challenged which I love and inspired. I know I can’t do this alone and I am so blessed to have you as my trainer. Again, THANK YOU.
