"I knew Gymnazo was a high quality facility, but I didn't really have much of an idea of what to expect my first time (except the obvious bits: exercise in a group setting with a trainer). I was totally operating on my wife's descriptions of her experiences. Walking in the door that first time, I felt immediately welcomed by the staff, not only with their smiles, positivity, and enthusiasm, but also by the fact that they knew my name before I even had the chance to introduce myself. That, quite honestly, blew me away. And the first session? It was fantastic. To be honest though, I wasn't sure it's what I really wanted to do (over, or even as a supplement to my personal workout routine). But I decided I would definitely do the second session. My experience was exactly the same. After both sessions, I walked out feeling I had been given a great experience: a workout totally appropriate to my level of fitness (challenging but not overly so), the coaches consistently motivated, encouraged, and praised the work every participant was doing, and they never stopped paying attention to each person's posture, technique, and form. Both sessions ended up being something I had never experienced before, at any workout facility, anywhere. Gymnazo is truly a one-of-a-kind facility, operated by the most professional, well-informed, positive folks I've come across in the exercise industry. Yes, exercise professionals often present as positive and enthusiastic and passionate. And yes, they want to you to exercise well and reap the benefits. But the coaches and staff at Gymnazo are a totally different caliber of exercise professional. Their interest and passion for the health and well-being of clients, their obvious attention to everything (from the big picture to the little details), and their commitment to professional development through continuing education, makes them truly stand out. And then there's the way they create community. It's a truly special place.
For all those reasons, I decided to join. Sure, I love the fact that I can schedule a workout type and level that fits in with how I'm feeling on a given day, show up, be greeted by name, and be given clear and continued instruction, guidance, encouragement on each exercise. But what I really love is the fact that all that is accompanied by the qualities of the staff I noted earlier. They clearly want and know how to help me reach my fitness goals. You leave after each workout in so many ways better than when you walked in. I can tell that that will never change. Gymnazo is worth your time and effort."
