I was looking to lose some weight. I didn’t think I could shed 46+ lbs., but my Weight Loss Coach did and never let me believe otherwise.
When I joined EFC earlier this year, the choice was a simple one; they have the best equipment, best facility and best staff in the area. In my initial visit with my Fitness and Weight Loss Coach she asked what my fitness goals were and like most people, I answered, “I want to lose weight and get in better shape”. She mentioned the “Take it off Weight Loss Program” and said to consider this program as it focuses on eating right, exercising and losing weight. Through a 12 week program you develop healthy eating habits with “grocery store food” (not processed foods or frozen dinners) and integrate that with a regular exercise routine and the results will come.
I decided to start on the program the first week of March and the pounds started to drop. Even with a busy schedule, this a great plan because you have options for your food choices. The best part of this plan is that if you follow the program, hunger is not an issue and it is easy to stay on track as you are eating well balanced meals with healthy snacks throughout the day. Another major component for me was the food journal in which you document everything that you eat. Then once a week, I would meet with my Coach to discuss how the week went as far as what I ate, how I worked out and how many lbs. I lost that week. The weekly meetings really kept me motivated and focused on reaching my goal.
I have to say that after twelve weeks, I couldn’t be more satisfied with the result. Not only did I achieve my goal, but I exceeded it thanks to my Coach and the best health club around. I would highly recommend the Take it Off Weight Loss Program to anyone looking to lose weight.
Thank You EFC!
I have been working a Fitness Coach for about 6 months. I always thought I was in fairly good shape until our workouts began. It is pretty amazing how many muscles are unused and deteriorate, as one grows older. Before I found Everybodys Fitness, my exercise routine consisted of walking 2 to 3 miles four (4) times a week. I tried other gyms but never felt comfortable.
I was feeling the stress from work and not taking the time to properly exercise. In addition, I was noticing changes in my body such as a lack of strength and energy. Working with a coach, I am feeling the difference! He is kind while forceful. He is encouraging yet assertive when he knows I need that extra push. He is attentive to my needs and very knowledgeable. We focus on the full body with functional movements. I feel stronger. I am less tired and stress free!!!! I look forward to going to the gym more so now that I have noticed changes in my body’s shape, size and strength. I am building muscle and endurance!!! My Kids who are all into fitness are proud that I have jumped on the fitness bandwagon. Just recently my husband had a medical emergency. Luckily I was there to catch him and successfully lower him to the floor. He is twice my body weight. A year ago I don’t think I would have been able to do that considering my back problems and lack of strength. My future fitness goal for next year is to walk the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure along side my daughters.
Thank you EFC!
I joined EFC one year ago today (11-19-11). I feel so much stronger, physically and mentally, than I did a year ago. The variety of classes and equipment are of course important, but equally important is the support of the wonderful staff and coaches. Thank you everyone for helping me stay motivated enough to lose 50lbs so far. I look forward to seeing how much more I can accomplish in year two!
After a year, I am happy to say that EFC is a great club. The people are friendly, the place is clean, the equipment is state of the art, and the focused training programs are great workouts. All of the trainers are knowledgeable and approachable, and never too busy to answer a question about exercises or equipment. Thanks for a wonderful year…looking forward to more.
I’ve been around the fitness center scene a long time, never have i had the focus,determination and the results i have had with EFC, the training staff is awesome and the group training sessions are great , it is just an all round AWESOME experience which has helped me with reaching a 53 lb weight loss mark with more to go …and a goal i know i can achieve and maintain, THANK YOU EFC
This gym is so clean, never crowded, and the staff are so friendly. After only a week I feel like I could come here everyday!
I joined EFC two months ago and honestly can say it’s like no other gym out there. A big reason I went so long without going to a gym was the simple fact that I am not the strongest or fit of people and hated going and feeling like chicken little or something. The name says it all “everybody’s fitness center”, it really is. It’s a gym… where you can go and feel comfortable in your own skin, whatever it may be. The staff there is awesome, they know you by name as soon as you walk in…you feel welcome…kind of like cheers except with smoothies instead of beers. The fitness equipment is absolutely state of the art, all of my friends that belong to the monster gyms are jealous of me that I get to use all of the great machines. I purchased 6 training sessions with Joe which I got more out of than I could ever imagine. When I first went in to sign up, I thought to myself… “I’ll just sign a contract for a year, and then I have to go”, now I can’t wait to get to the gym. I can honestly say that EFC has helped me change my life…..Thank You!!
I joined in December and had a few rough months medically and Ginny took the time out of her busy schedule to touch base with me! That made a lasting impression on me and now I look forward to going to work out! Thanks Ginny for that! and Seth has giving me the strength NOT to give up and keep going and not get discouraged Ty Seth and for the most part everyone is extremely nice… Keep up the great work guys!
DO you want to get in shape and have fun this is the place! The Staff is great, the people that come here are very friendly and you feel at home, if I can do this anyone can!!
Nicole a.k.a. Pain Maiden, has made such a difference in my life. She is without a doubt the right fit for me. Thanks Jason for pairing us up! The gym is great, the people are fantastic…I hate exercise and Nicole and EFC have made it easier for me to just be me while I’m there. I am writing about my journey since joining EFC…so, if you’re thinking about a gym or a personal trainer, just go in and check the place out…you’ll notice the difference from other gyms right away! Thanks to you all…I’m one step closer to a Cherry Butt!
I’ve always been intimidated by going to a gym and I usually ended up not continuing. Well Not here. I love it and so do my daughters. So Glad I joined. Thank you Barbara, Jason, Joe and Nicole! For making us feel so welcome. The equipment is awesome too. The tv’s make the time for Cardio (which is my least favorite thing to do) go so quickly. And I love the Matrix the machines are so easy to work. I have to say, for the first time I actually look forward to coming to the gym.
Everybody’s Fitness Center is much more than just a “fitness center”; EFC is a community. The EFC community is a mix of knowledgeable staff and a group of members motivated to reach their fitness goals. The entire gym has a positive vibe that will make anyone comfortable. As someone new to the “fitness world” I was terrified to join a… gym. I was intimidated by machines and afraid that I would fail. The staff at EFC worked with me to overcome these fears. Whether it was Joe challenging me in a training session or Nicole providing moral support with nutrition, I quickly became comfortable. I now look forward to my time at EFC. I have even conquered my fear of spin class. I now look forward to Sunday spin with the great music mixes. I cannot say enough positive things about my time at EFC. Since opening in October, I have lost over 20lbs and have challenged myself in ways I would have never thought possible. I have reached goals and have created new ones. I could have never done it without the community at EFC. It truly is Everybody’s Fitness Center.
I had been away from the ‘gym world’ for a long time. This is the most accepting, non-judgmental gym I have ever belonged to. Nicole is an awesome personal trainer and once I’m over my pneumonia, I’ll be back on track!!!!!!
I joined when the club opened back in October. I hadn’t been in any sort of organized fitness program since my Sophomore year in high school (1990-91). I’ve been blown away by how spectacular the experience has been. The staff, the equipment, and the other people working out have been beyond expectations. I’m working out 3-4 times a w…eek, twice a week with a trainer. I’m down 15 pounds, feeling stronger, more energetic, and just healthier every day. This is the best fitness decision I’ve ever made.
Two and a half months later and things are better than ever. I’m now down 25 pounds. Strength, flexibility, and stamina are all up immensely. Yoga, personal training, and just being around a bunch of amazingly positive people who really care about my health and well-being is a spectacular experience. I can’t say enough wonderful things about EFC, the staff, and everyone I’ve met in the last six months at the club. Grade A+ for the whole experience.
Just joined and I love it so far. The staff is wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable, and the equipment is brand new. Now, if they could just make it easier for me to get up at 5:30am, they would be the best gym EVER!
