I came to Synergy at the age of 54, NEVER having exercised regularly in my life. As a kid, I was weak and uncoordinated, and was always picked last for every team in gym class. Over the years, I grew more discouraged about everything my body couldn’t do. To me, exercise was painful, frustrating, and humiliating. I knew I was never going to change my habits by myself, but I was afraid to join a gym. I pictured gyms as places where young, toned, beautiful people showed off their bodies and bench pressed 200 pounds! I’m grateful every day that I decided to try the small group training. The people who go to Synergy are all different ages and ability levels. The trainers tailor the routines so that they are right for each individual. I have found that the other clients are incredibly supportive as well. We cheer each other on, and even get a little friendly competition going sometimes. The most amazing thing to me is that I have stuck to it for over two years. I feel stronger, have fewer aches and pains that come with the aging process, and generally feel more confident about my ability to take on challenges.
