It is a Judgement-Free Facility

I joined Synergy nearly six months ago after “persistent suggestions” from my wife to do so; my wife has been a faithful member of Synergy now for well over one and half years. She loves going to Synergy and thought the experience would be good for me. I hate to admit it in writing, but she was right.

When I joined Synergy I was overweight, stressed and out-of-shape (to put it mildly). I had never really formally worked out before and had no idea where to even begin. I had tried going to gyms in the past, but without the knowledge of what to do there, I never got into the hang of it and often found many excuses to bail out. There was no one to hold me accountable, no one to assess my needs and help shape my goals, and certainly no one to teach me the valuable skills I needed to know in order to have an efficient, effective and fulfilling workout.

Synergy provides an environment where someone like me can thrive. It is a judgment-free facility where both men and women can feel comfortable working out no matter the age, gender, size/shape and skill of an individual. The small group classes allow the trainers to really focus in on everyone’s needs. In fact, it is not unusual for exercises to be modified for those that need it. The classes are challenging, but the time flies by. The mixture of cardio and strength training keeps things interesting while not overdoing it.

What really makes Synergy standout are the people. Brad is a terrific spokesman for the product and really cares about his members. While I know Cynthia is a great trainer, I have primarily worked with Jim and Sean – both of whom are amazing. Jim and Sean know everyone who comes through the door. They remember (somehow) everyone’s strengths and needs and quickly adapt and guide participants through the workouts often without even being prompted. I have learned so much from the two of them and am very appreciative of their time and guidance.

To date, I have lost nearly 20 pounds, feel much stronger and have been able to find a good outlet to shed some of my stress. Synergy has improved me in so many ways, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to try something different.
