After working from home for several months starting in March, by summertime, Heather Fasola of Concord was feeling a little stir-crazy, isolated and sluggish.

She had gone from a super active job as a fourth-grade teacher to streaming her classes from home and not going out much.

“In July, I had started to feel unfit, lazy and just not comfortable,” says Heather. “One day I was walking into the pet store and saw Fitness Together next door and thought I’d give it a shot. I knew I needed help.”

Since then, she’s worked out faithfully three times a week, dropped 20 pounds and transformed her body from Covid-flabby to tight and toned.

“I didn’t know what to expect, as I’d never worked out with a trainer,” she says. “I was a little intimidated before starting, but not after that first session. The big surprise for me was how much fun it is. My workouts are the highlight of my day…total me time. The trainers are a delight and are always changing up the workouts to keep my mind and body guessing.”

Studio Manager Alli Kaliszewski reports that Heather has been a pleasure to train.

“She’s always in a great mood and up for any challenge we throw at her,” says Alli. “As soon as she started seeing results from the workouts, her awesome attitude became even better and she grew more motivated to progress.”

As they do with all their clients, talking about nutrition has been part of Heather’s training, too.

“They ask me about what I’ve been eating and offer excellent suggestions for how I can make simple changes to my diet that produce a difference,” she says. “The combination of nutrition and physical training has affected every other part of my life, from having more energy to sleeping better and feeling less stress.”

Fitness Together is offering a Six-Week Transformation Challenge. Simply train at Fitness Together either in small groups or one-on-one for six weeks. If you don’t lose at least 20 pounds, you either get your money back or apply what the six weeks would cost to future training.
