How long have you worked out at SportXcel?
January 15 2012
What makes SportXcel different than other gyms?
Each work out is a group session, however the trainers individualize the work out for each of the participants. They push us when we need to be, and modify when appropriate, based on each individual. They are all very positive, encouraging and supportive of each of our individual goals and progress. The training and workouts seem like they could be more intimidating than another gym but the trainers and SportXcel environment are the exact opposite and very welcoming of all participants, all levels of fitness, and differences in goals.
Each training session includes a wide variety of activities developed to help us improve on total body health, strength, and balance. There are several adult classes offered each day and although each class trains the same body parts, each time slot is unique. It is great to have the different time options each day, but we all seem to have found our favorite class. The SportXcel environment is very positive and healthy. The gym has attracted a right mix of clients who span a wide age range and ability range, who are enthusiastic about working out and supportive of one another.
The gym also includes individual personal training, specific sports focused training, team training, therapy services and more. The SportXcel staff are trained and committed to assisting when needed to ensure healthy clients.
Do you train at SportXcel for events (e.g. Skiing, 10ks, soccer, hiking, etc.)? If so, how has training at SportXcel helped you perform better in those activities?
I am not training at SportXcel for an event or other athletic activity. However, I am in better shape than I have been in many years, so if I wanted to participate in another athletic activity I would be prepared. The SportXcel workouts have helped me with important regular day activities. I am stronger, and healthier. I am able to sleep better, eat better and can manage the work stress more effectively. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want to look better in their jeans?
Any other information or comments may be added below! I have met a lot of great people at SportXcel and rely on my workouts for an important balance to a healthy lifestyle.
