Charter Fitness Member Gains Happiness, Confidence Through Personal Training

CHICAGO - April 4, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Few would deny the benefits that regular exercise can bring to a person's physical well-being. Studies have shown that even 30 minutes of walking each day can help with one's weight loss, muscle tone, heart rate as well as bone health.

Equally important but often overlooked are the emotional benefits exercise brings. People who exercise regularly report being happier.

"Going to the gym has always been a pleasant escape for me," said Gretchen, a Charter Fitness member who loves to share her fitness story.

Gretchen has quite a happy story to tell. She successfully lost 60 pounds and four clothing sizes in less than two years – an achievement she credits to her personal trainer at Charter Fitness. "Mentally, I've never been in better shape. My self-confidence has grown while my waist has shrunk. I owe all of that to the dedication and persistence of my trainer," she added.

Gretchen's success is no coincidence. Charter Fitness has developed a "blue print" for success. All personal trainers receive extensive training and are provided the necessary tools to develop customized programs for members.

"We are very proud of our personal training team. A lot of members have told us similar stories about how they've become healthier and happier," said Dan Collins , Director of Sales of Charter Fitness.

Even after reaching her fitness and weight goals, Gretchen continues to train at Charter Fitness. "To me, the cost of training is worth the investment in my health," said Gretchen.
