The act of exercising takes will power; but acutllay getting extreme results while having fun only happens at FIT! Group exercise is extremely motivating to me and having a group atmosphere with the feel of personal training is what you get from Deb & Victoria! I have been a member since Feb. 2008, and have been hooked ever since not to mention I don't believe I've done the same workout twice! I have exercised all of my adult life both on my own and at various gyms but, FIT is where it's at! The variety is beyond belief, the classes are fun and motivating, and the feeling I have when I leave is priceless Thanks Deb for getting me hooked on FIT and thanks Victoria for coming along and only adding to what Deb had already created as a welcoming place to exercise. Fitness is very important in my life and by bringing my daughter, Tia, along to spend time in the kids room at FIT she has made some great friends (children of other members) and appreciates the importance of fitness. Thanks for being so great to Tia also! Good luck in the new location.. I am excited for you both! And, I am excited to spend my time excercising in the new place!
