I have never went out of my way to write a review about ANYTHING so you know this place must be awesome. After only being a member there for 7 months and having to move back home, this place would be the only reason why I would consider staying. After having my second child and gaining over 30 lbs. (2 years ago) I had been struggling to lose the weight. I had tried EVERY diet, I had even bought EVERY workout DVD but no luck. While running track and playing tennis from middle school through college I thought I knew everything about how to lose weight and be fit but not until this moment in my life did I break down and tell my husband I needed some advice because it was obvious that I did not know what to do. Although it took me a lot of thinking and trying to convince my husband (military man), I invested in a personal trainer at Pivotal Fitness and I can say that the money spent was WELL worth it. Within 6 weeks I lost 30 lbs with the help of Vassil :-). My metabolism is back on track and I have kept the weight off (although I dont go 5-6 a week anymore because of being so busy with school and moving). I must say I worked my behind off but it was honestly the motivation I had along with the different workouts that Vassil had set for me to do and the food that I ate. He gave me master food list and I strictly stuck to that (with giving myself little breaks on the weekend :-)). Although Vassil's knowledge was a huge part of my success, I made it my business to participate in many of their group fitness classes they offer. They have such an array of classes throughout the day that I never seemed to get bored. I truly enjoyed this gym to the fullest along with all the welcoming faces and smiles. Oh let me not forget to mention their childcare services that are free to members. MY SON USE TO BEG ME TO GO WORK OUT EVERYDAY. LOL But all in all I can honestly say that this is the best gym that I have ever been too. I am going to miss coming here.

After avoiding gyms completely for 6 years and creating some pretty terrible perceptions of everyone and everything at the gym, I was asked by a friend to try a group fitness class at one of Pivotal Fitness's Open Houses. I went reluctantly and with a chip on my shoulder. When I left class that day I felt pumped up, alive, and ready to do anything. Since that first class I have participated in various RPM classes, Boot Camp, Zumba classes, and of course Lisa's phenomenal Cardio Strength class, and I LOVE each one. All the trainers are unbelievable at what they do, the staff are fantastic, all the member are like family, and the management is out of this world.There are not too many places I feel motivated by that passion of the people that work there, but I do at Pivotal Fitness. Thank you Pivotal Fitness Staff and Lisa for all you do!
If you are looking for knowledge and experience, you will definitely find it with Fitness Worx. You will not only learn how to work out properly, you also receive a wealth of information on diet and nutrition. I have been training for almost 2 years with Paul and find myself reaching goals that I have never been able to meet on my own. During times of plateaus, which seem to happen no matter how dedicated you are to your workouts, I was taught how to strategically change my routine to restart the fat burning and muscle toning process. It’s not hard to find a trainer; it’s hard to find one that will teach you how to achieve results. I have found the trainer that can accomplish that at Fitness Worx.
