Lost 40 Lbs

I had worked with personal trainers (one-on-one), joined big box gyms, and tried working out on my own – none of which worked for me. So, when a friend told me about how much they loved Synergy’s small group training, I was excited to give it a try (considering this was probably the only type of gym I hadn’t tried).

The entire process was quite easy. I first had a phone conversation with Brad, the owner, who was more than helpful in answering all of my big and small questions. Next, I came in for a meeting with Jackie, Membership Service Manager, who gave me a tour of the gym, went through the easy-to-use online scheduling system, set me up with the Six-Week Jump Start program, and led me through some initial fitness tests.

I have been with Synergy for four months now and have lost 40 lbs. and dropped 10% in body fat. Since my initial fitness test, I have doubled the time in which I can hold a wall sit, I have over tripled the time in which I can hold a plank, and quadrupled the amount of push-ups I can complete.

Its Not Just About Weight Loss

This past weekend, I finished the 3 day, 180 mile bicycle Trek Across Maine for the fourth time. While a challenge, as it should be, it was not grueling due to this past year’s training at Synergy. And my improved level of fitness made the challenge enjoyable.

I’ve been a member of Synergy for over 2 years, and each year the 3 day hill-filled Trek – an excellent measure of endurance, strength and cardio fitness – has gotten easier to accomplish – and consequently, much more enjoyable to do. Improved cardio fitness has given me confidence to take on road biking challenges which once seemed close to impossible. I’m looking forward to doing a one day Boston-P’town ride this weekend, and a ride across NY State this summer, thanks to the whole body workouts at Synergy. The focus on core strength and cardio improvement – geared to my personal level of fitness – has allowed challenges which seemed insurmountable to be within reach – and enjoyable.

Synergy can help you as an athlete improve your own personal level of fitness and give you confidence to go for goals which once seemed out of reach.
