Northampton, MA Group Fitness Training Member and Former Diabetic

John’s program and the congenial non-threatening environment of Fitness Fusion are a large piece of why I was able to overcome diabetes.

I heard of Fitness Fusion through my wife, as John Glynn opened the gym in my wife’s building. My first class was in July. I met with John and he did a fitness evaluation with me and recommended the fusion camps. I must admit, I found the first workout to be very hard. The work out was varied, combining cardio with strength and core training, and even though I thought I was in pretty good shape (and comparatively I was) I could not finish a whole circuit without taking a break. To be honest, I felt like puking! John was so supportive and knowledgeable and assured me that I should go at my own pace. As weeks passed, I began to see improvements. My energy level has improved and I began to feel differently. I can now complete a whole circuit of exercises without stopping and I look and feel better than I ever have. For the first time in my life, I truly enjoy exercising.

More importantly, as of my last check up, my diabetes is totally under control (without meds) and I have entered a new uncharted phase of my life.

I cannot recommend John and Fitness Fusion enough. I believe strongly that John’s program and the congenial non-threatening environment of Fitness Fusion are a large piece of why I was able to overcome diabetes. John is always supportive, and open with advice about nutrition, stretching and what to do on recovery days. Now, as my fitness level has improved, John knows just how to and when to push so I can move beyond my plateaus.

He’s always willing to meet with me to discuss my fitness goals, and I can mine his extensive knowledge to make sure I continue to improve. Exercise has become a part of my life now, and I thank John and all the other members at Fitness Fusion for making it so. If you commit yourself to growth and improvement, celebrate milestones, while recognizing but not agonizing over set backs, then you will see results with John and Fitness Fusion.
