Started looking for a gym for a bigger size lady like myself, went to a few of the national chains and really felt uncomfortable. I got a free pass for Mademosele and tried it. The average size woman there was not a tiny 20 year old. They said they offer free personal training, so I tried them on a month to month deal. I can now say I am hooked. Classes I take do not make me feel uncomfortable and I feel i can use any of the equipment and pool without feeling like I don't fit in. I do use the free personal training and while she helps me she helps others as well, I feel like I have a chance now to lose some weight and not be treated like an outsider, I'm glad I found Mademoisele.
I joined stages when I was pregnant and now I do the mommy and me program. I'm so glad they are here! When I found out I was pregnant I couldn't find a place to workout where instructors knew how to modify my exercises. I found stages and was able to take prenatal yoga and pilates. I also took their modified aerobics/toning classes. As a result, I had more energy and less back pain! And I didn't have to worry about if the exercises were safe for my baby - they did that for me! Now I'm in the mommy and me classes and love it! I get to workout with my baby and meet other moms! There's truly no other place like it! Love the instructors and the other moms!
I made the mistake of going and joining another gym because it was cheaper and I cancelled as fast as I joined because it was TERRIBLE. I joined Aspen Athletic Club Rockwell location and I was in AWE! this place is so awesome! HUGE and its alot better than edmonds location which is where I was a member for a year. I love it here! HUGE weight room I dont have to wait to use a machine or free weights its so GREAT! cardio machines are new and the staff is REAL FRIENDLY!!!! I love it here and I plan on achieving my fitness goals AT ASPEN ATHLETIC CLUB!!!!!
