Q: What has kept you coming to the Get You In Shape program?

I have stayed engaged at GYIS because I love the work outs, I love the people associated with GYIS, and I love the results.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?

I exercised infrequently. I ate “out” all the time with little attention to my caloric intake. I was wearing a pant size I never dreamt I would have to wear. Most evenings after dinner, my focus was “what is for dessert?”

Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?David Shaw - Before & After

The staff really cares. They make sure you are doing the exercises safely and to maximize the activity for the best results. If you need a modification of an exercise, they are there to help. The staff are not drill sergeants as the words “boot camp” might make one think.

Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?

a) Have an eating plan each day. Lack of planning usually leads to bad choices. b) Using myfitnesspal.com helps me understand the nutritional value of everything I put in my mouth every day. I am “addicted” to entering my food daily to see what my caloric intake is each day. The most important tool I have learned is the power of stretching BEFORE and AFTER workouts. The benefits have been amazing.

Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?

The only other programs I have tried are Weight Watchers and working out on my own. Both were boring. At GYIS there is a set schedule of workouts to commit to which is good for me. The workouts are different each day so there is not a boring repetitive slump to fall into. The trainers make the workouts fun as well. My daily workout is the “fastest hour” of my day by far. Being assigned an accountability coach that you meet with frequently has been a huge motivator and very helpful.

Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?

I have lost 42 pounds, dropped 2 pant sizes, improved my one mile running time over 3 minutes to the mid 9 minute range and I have gained a lot of strength.

Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?

If you want to get back into health and fitness without going thru all the pain and suffering the other programs offer, GYIS is the place to be!!!
