"Exercise is not optional -- the human body is meant to move. To ward off disease you have maintain an exercise program."
Recently, these words of advice were passed on to me and a few other 50-60-something women participating in a "Group Physical" at the Cleveland Clinic. Having a history of back pain, I am very fortunate to have Chagrin Fitness as an integral part of my exercise regime. The quality of instruction and professionalism of the personal trainers is comparable to none in excellence. These past four years, my personally designed workout routine, to improve my body's flexibility, strength, balance, and cardio, is enabling me to lead a fuller life. Because of increased strength, I am able to independently perform household tasks requiring lifting and carrying. Furthermore, when traveling, I now lift and carry my own luggage with no worries of back pain. Most importantly, the workouts at Chagrin Fitness are aiding me in keeping bone and heart healthy without medications. After every workout I feel physically fit and mentally great!
A grateful client,
Personal training was a big step for me. I was in my late fifties and was dealing with painful arthritis. I was really nervous about going to a place where everyone would be physically fit and athletic. But the second I arrived, I was put at ease. One of the other clients came up to me and welcomed me. She said that this was going to be the best thing I ever did for myself -- and it was!
All types of people work out at Chagrin Fitness . . . men, women, young, old, strong and not so strong. No matter what your ability, the trainers design a program to meet your needs to make you as strong and fit as possible. Chagrin Fitness makes working out easy and fun. No two sessions are exactly the same. My trainer varies the workout and sets up all of the equipment. It is so easy . . . and you never get bored because you are always moving to another type of exercise or some other piece of equipment. The session passes quickly with your trainer focused exclusively on you and your needs. I have been working out two mornings a week for over three years. I still am not a bodybuilder or marathoner but I do have my life back and for that I will be eternally grateful.
