MUSCLE MEMORY / TESTIMONIALS
“Stronger than I was when I was in my twenties”
I started training at Muscle Memory with my daughter because we were looking to upgrade our own workouts. I enjoy the atmosphere, and since I started coming, I’ve completed the Delta triathlon two years in a row. I am in the best shape of my life, stronger than I was in my twenties. Personal Training is the best way to improve your fitness. – Greg Baron, client since 2006
“The trainers push us hard enough to get the results we want while keeping it fun”
– Karen and Patti, small group clients since 2005
I have been coming to Muscle Memory for approximately 7 months now following my resolution to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday – Mike has been my trainer since I started here. The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Mike’s combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs and challenging (yet achievable) goal setting. His professionalism, knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his work and ultimately his clients, provides the perfect scenario for success! I highly recommend Muscle Memory and their fantastic trainers to anyone with a specific fitness goal or just looking for a healthier lifestyle. Oh, and my own resolution – down 43 pounds! Thanks Mike!!

When did you begin at Muscle Memory and why?
I joined MM 5 years ago after getting a new hip. I initially started with some personal training to gain confidence in moving again after surgery before I joined in Saturday morning group classes. Me and the initial group of 7 other women have become good friends and stay in close touch over the years even though our classes have changed.
What were your expectations of Muscle Memory?
Or what did you want to get out of it? My expectations of MM was a supportive and inviting environment that I would want to come to. Initially my goal was some basic fitness activity, but didn’t get down and serious until the start of 2012 and I was getting well into my 60’s.
What are you currently doing at Muscle Memory, classes and personal training?
It sounds like I have nothing else to do, but I have a full time senior management job downtown but still currently I manage to do a full hour spin class, a boot camp, the wonderful new spin & strength as well as some personal training to do some specific work on strength and balance. I am a little bionic in that I have a new hip and a titanium steel plate in my arm, but I keep on going and everything is adapted to any specific issues I have.
What have you gotten out of it/what have your results been?
I made a resolve for 2012 to lose 75 pounds and I have achieved that goal in 13 months and I do owe a hunk of my success to the continued support & encouragement from the fabulous trainers and fellow fitness pals at MM to keep on going. The trainers really do take a personal interest in you. Being in the registered classes makes me accountable and encourages me to show up when believe me, those dark and rainy mornings at 6:00 a.m., it seems like there could be a lot of great reasons to not make it! I feel better both physically & mentally than I have in years!
“As a 62 year old woman, I’m well aware of the benefits of exercising and, in particular, weight training. I’ve been working with Shannon for a year now and have found that I feel very empowered in and with the strength, weight loss and muscle definition that I’ve gained in addition to range of motion. I’ve recently run a running race where I came in second in my age group and contribute that outcome directly to training with Shannon. She’s a wonderful trainer… experienced, fun, funny and always, always holds me accountable… which I love. I highly recommend Shannon and miss my workouts when I can’t attend.”
“Regular exercise gives me a feeling of well being that I don’t get from other activities. I’m stronger and more coordinated than when I was younger, which I feel is important to maintain as I age. Whether it’s weights or cardio Shannon makes all my workouts challenging, fun and something I look forward to.”
