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. LOLBut 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.
Both of my kids attend this school. We have known the owners forever. Everyone that works there is awesome.
Joel is very passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! Joel also places the highest value on correct form & technique with each exercise to ensure maximum results without ever risking injury. He will develop a plan specific to you, and tailor each exercise to your specific goals. He documents everything and tracks your improvements each time, identifying what works for you. Workouts are never boring, and there are always new and exciting exercises. He knows how to motivate me, he makes each of my training sessions challenging, but rewarding. Joel is always very encouraging and has a vast treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge. I highly recommend him as your trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals.Dubose Fitness gets results.-Brock
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!
The JCC is a fantastic facility to be a part of. I was impressed by the cleanliness in every area of the gym especially in the babysitting area. Theresa at the front desk is amazingly helpful and professional as well as the babysitting staff. The JCC makes it very convenient for parents to schedule babysitting services online and my 3 year old loves being there. The fitness center uses the latest gym equipment and has top-notch personal trainers and group fitness instructors. The aquatics area is very well-maintained. On my first visit there, I immediately could sense the family atmosphere. I joined in May and through the use of the fitness area and classes, I lost 20 pounds in my first month.
The JCC is an awesome place to work out. The equipment is always in good condition and there is never a wait, there is an indoor pool, child care is provided while you work out, and the staff is friendly and really gets to know you. I love that they provide towels so I don't have to lug everything I own into the gym. Lots of extras are offered too, such as Jewish food for holidays, classes and guest speakers, festivals for kids -- all included with your membership. And free coffee every morning! Lots of parking and a beautiful facility.
Friendly and fun Gold's Gym. Love, Love, Love the Zumba classes with Renada and Ormando. Front staff will always greet you with a "Hi, how are you?" and when leaving you will hear, "Have a good day!" There is enough space between the equipment so you are not splashed with your neighbor's sweat. There is a large variety of equipment for strength training, cardio, as well as a track. You will never get bored! I highly recommend Golds Gym on Killian Rd.
Joel is a great trainer and motivator. He is also very knowledgeable in every aspect of a workout and how to properly workout. He provides a lot of good advice on how to live life the healthy way. I loved working out with him. I keep signing up for more sessions because not only he is a good trainer, his workout routines have already had an impact in my body and mind.
Shannon and Jessica were wonderful to work with. It was an amazing experience to do the 6 week classes and see the transformation from life vests to swimming. I can't express how worth it it's been. With over an hour and a half drive and 4 children 7 and under, do it! It is worth every penny and every minute.
The JCC is a great place to work and workout. Everyone is really friendly and the atmosphere is great. There is something for everyone when it comes to classes and programs. It's much more than a gym, it really is a community center where everyone is welcome. That's why I love being here!
Love this place. I was hesitant to go it first. Wife talked me into getting a personal trainer. I've had him for six months and have seen phenomenal gains!
