I train at FSI because I enjoy working out, and the workouts at FSI are always challenging.  Chris changes up the workouts by making a game-type setting out of some. The workouts are enjoyable, and even though I continue to challenge myself to meet personal goals, the gym and all the people in it are positive influences in me meeting my fitness goals. The biggest factor is that at FSI, you are there for yourself and your own personal goals. You are not in competition with anyone. You are encouraged by others, but no one ever judges you by the weights you use or what you can do.

I have seen a loss on the scale. I have also lost inches. My clothes are fitting better. The biggest results I have seen are the improvements in my running. When I started at FSI, I could barely run to the tree without having to walk back, and now I can run further and more times without stopping. This is not without the help of other’s encouragement and running by my side.  I have also increased my weight one time since I started at FSI. I started with a shoulder injury, and now I am doing regular push-ups. You just want to better yourself, and you know you can reach your goals.

The feeling you get after you are done with your workout. The accomplishment. You know that you are going to the gym, and you will see the same people who are now becoming like family to you there right by your side.  You know that you will complete the workout. The feeling of reaching my goals. Making my kids proud of me. I want to be healthy, and I do not want my kids to worry about taking care of me in the future.

It is a gym that you can reach your goals at your own pace while surrounded by positive people and a knowledgeable coach. It is not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. There will be times that you want to give up, but there will be people that will encourage you to keep pushing. You will see change, and you will never be judged or feel out of place or uncomfortable. If you take the first step, you will not regret it.
