I’ve been a long-time member of Shape4Life and continue to choose this fitness studio for many reasons:
*Shape4Life is for everyone.
Unlike “box gyms,” I’m not a number or faceless client in an overcrowded class. The trainers know me by name and take time to get to know my particular fitness goals, place in that journey, and work with me directly to support me in reaching those goals. They teach me exercise modifications when necessary so I don’t injure myself, and challenge me to pick up that higher weight, try something new, keep going and working when I want to stop or quit, or take a different class.
As teachers and mentors, the trainers educate me about nutrition and how physical exercise and proper nutrition go hand-in-hand in terms of attaining my fitness goals.
*Shape4Life welcomes all shapes and sizes.
I’ve belonged to other fitness studios or gyms where I felt “out of place,” invisible, or intimidated when walking out of the locker room because I’m curvy and not the so-called “perfect” size 0.
At Shape4Life, I’m in classes where other clients are at all different fitness levels, ages, dress or pant sizes, and at different crossroads and places in their fitness journey. It is a supportive and accepting environment where best practices, tips, recipes, and even frustrations are shared and discussed. It is a place where I belong, grow, and am challenged in each class.
*Shape4Life trainers live the wellness journey and want me to live my best life.
Finally, the Shape4Life trainers have lived the weight-loss journey I am currently on and so they know success, the frustration or setbacks involved, and the hard work it takes to maintain health and wellness. I don’t feel alone in, what at times, can feel like a daunting journey. That personalized attention is invaluable and priceless.
