        Member Testimonial
        As newly retired members of the Clarington community, we felt motivated to focus on fitness and the
        excitement of an active lifestyle. Choosing a Personal Trainer has had the benefit of understanding our
        personal strengths, weaknesses and the ability to set goals. Has it been successful? A resounding yes
        seems appropriate.
        Training started with an assessment of our personal abilities and areas that could be improved. This in
        itself was both eye-opening and useful. Our next delight came from the development of programs that
        were specific to our needs. Every exercise that was assigned had a clearly defined benefit that matched
        our expressed goals. We are also delighted with the fluidity and ongoing changes our trainer makes to

                                                                                                                  Fitness
        the exercises as we progress in ability and come closer to meeting our goals.
        We have just returned from a running event in Burlington. We are both delighted to have achieved a
        personal best in these races. To say we are extremely pleased with having a Personal Trainer and the
        door this decision has opened…somehow feels like an understatement.
