Testimonials


The workouts are fabulous! I was inspired by everyone who was at Fitness Optimist.

From the trainers to the clients, the support is unbelievable.

After going over and understanding the nutrition, I finally realized that proper nutrition and exercise habits equal weight loss.

I have lost 25 lbs and gained a healthy lifestyle!

The first week I started, they put me on a nutrition program and checked my measurements monthly, which shows me what I need to work on and motivates me in reaching my goal.

I feel healthy and energized. I still have a little bit to go but I'm almost there! The Fitness Optimist is family oriented, has a clean environment, the staff is informative, helpful and friendly.

I heard great feedback from various people but, after my own experience it surpassed my expectations.

The trainers at Fitness Optimist gave me good advice and suggestions and took the time to explain to me how eating works in conjunction with your workout regimen.

I was thrilled to go from a size 26 to a size 14! The trainers take a personal interest in the clients and their goals.

I lost close to 60 lbs and 9% body fat.

They look deeper than just the physical aspect of your needs and really draw the goals in you that you didn't even realize you had.

One thing that also made my transition a smooth one was that once you're a member you will be treated like a ROCK STAR, Literally! Thank you!

I have had many gym memberships, joined Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers on more than a few occasions, and still over weight.

I would get some results but they were all short lived.

I was given an ad for Fitness Optimist by a friend.

We had decided that I would be the one to call to get the info for the both of us.

I am glad I did. I have lost about 60 pounds thus far, and I am stronger than I have ever been.

The workouts are completely different from what I was doing.

They are hard work, they challenge you every time and they provide results.

The staff and other clients are supportive and motivating.

We are like a family. I love it, I'm loving my results and you can too.

When I came to Fitness Optimist I was 300lbs, out of shape and on the verge of being a diabetic.

This worried me because Heart Disease, Diabetes, and High Blood Pressure run in my family.

I made the commitment to try Joe's program follow his instructions and in a few months I have dropped over 60 lbs I am more defined, stronger, faster and leaner than I've been in over a decade, but that's just the beginning.

So not only will you look and feel better but most importantly you will learn the things you need in order to maintain your new you.

The program is not easy, but if you commit to it, and follow all of the advice, I can make you a promise you that it will be the very best decision and life choice you have ever made.

I've always been a fan of the biggest loser, and I've watched all 13 seasons that have been on tv.

After every finale, I wished that I could have made the same transformation that the winner did.

So soon after the 2011 season, I got tired of dreaming about change and wanted my own "Biggest Loser" moment.

I went on line in search of a boot camp and found Fitness Optimist.

I encouraged my sister to go with me for a consultation and after talking to Joe Buabeng, the owner, we signed up sight unseen.

It's the best investment that I've ever made.

One year later, I have lost over 45 lbs. and reduced my body fat percentage by 15%.

Needless to say I have had quite a body transformation. I am able to do exercises that I would have never dreamed of, and I can run 3 miles.

Thanks Joe for the work that has already been done, but we have some more to do to reach my ultimate goal.

People do not recognize me and are constantly asking me how I did it.

I've struggled with my weight and health for a very long time and dreamt of feeling and looking great in my body.

It took work, patience, focus and determination to stay on track, it was work but it's the best thing I've ever done for myself.

Because of my drastic change, good nutrition and exercise have become a permanent part of my life.

For the first time in my life, I enjoy exercising! I've lost over 90 lbs.
