“I joined Advanced Fitness and Wellness Obesity Management Program looking for guidance to help in my struggle to lose weight. I received much more. This program helped me lose weight AND change bad habits. I am more knowledgeable about how important exercise and eating right are a way of life. I now have more confidence and self-esteem. The motivation the staff gave me was a true blessing. I saw that they understood my struggle and genuinely wanted to help me with my goals. This is a lifestyle change that does work. For me, this program is great because they gave me the tools and knowledge to get where I wanted to be. The changes within me are not only to my benefit, but to those in my life who mean the most to me, my family. Thank you so much!”
“After joining the Advanced Fitness, I gained a lot of power, energy and strength using their innovative ways. I learned new techniques on how and what kind of physical exercises I must do. I incorporated bodybuilding processes, weight lifting, workouts at home and many more for greater strength and improved performance. I’m fortunate that my friend recommended Advanced Health & Fitness to me so I can accomplish my goals.”
“My family and I are very happy using the Child Functional Training Program for childhood obesity, it really shaped up the life of my children. My kids were suffering from heredity obesity and it negatively affected their physical and psychosocial health. Professionals at Advanced Fitness and Wellness are very friendly and effective in communication, so my kids didn’t feel discomfort and co-operated with them fully. I am very appreciative of their kind attention. Thanks a ton!”
“The Heart-Beat Program by Advanced Fitness and Wellness provided me consistent support on healthy eating, working out, better lifestyle choices and many other things, they really saved and improved my life. Using their heart health program, my all heart issues have been solved. I was finally able to turn my problematic life into the perfect one. Advanced Health & Fitness is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for a healthier and better well-being, everybody should grab it up.”
“The Dia- “Beat” -It Program, as per its name, I finally succeeded in beating my diabetic problems, which gave me a reason to live life happily. I was suffering from diabetes, which really made my life worse, but after joining Advanced Fitness and Wellness, I learned how to control my sugar level, high blood pressure and other symptoms through fun & challenging exercises. I was also facing diabetic neuropathies, and the professional staff at AFW helped me heal my symptoms and ultimately I’m leading my life without any health issues or stress. Thumbs Up!”
“I joined Advanced Fitness and Wellness when they opened two years ago (my first-ever gym membership), and the experience has been life-altering. Not only am I in the best shape of my life despite being in my mid-40s, the chronic low-back issues I’ve had since my late-teens have become manageable. Before I started at Advanced, I never would have imagined that I would actually look forward to 5:30 AM bootcamp classes, but now those early-morning workouts have become one of the highlights of my week. Dr. Glenn always offers challenging and interesting exercises in a welcoming and supportive environment, and the class feels like a bunch of friends pushing each other to achieve our individual best. Over the past two years, I’ve learned that there are few things more rewarding than setting a strength or fitness goal, and reaching it through hard work and dedication.”
“This gym has a sense of community. If you are struggling or looking for ways to switch up your normal workout out routine, the staff is more than willing to help you find what works for you. Exercise is not one-size-fits-all, the staff knows this and designs a plan for you.”
