I started training at TWIST when I was nine years old, and now I am about to turn seventeen. It is safe to say that TWIST is my second home. Working out from such a young age at a place so motivating has made me the person I am today, and has helped me reach some of my largest goals.
I owe TWIST for teaching me that working hard in the gym will set you apart. Having the opportunity to workout with some of the best trainers and surrounded by unbelievable athletes has given me the confidence to know that if I work hard I can get to where I want to be.
There is something that burns inside of us as TWIST athletes – we are happy to come to the gym five times a week during the summer for two hour workouts; we want to beat the person next to us in a race; we all want to get better. This drive does come from within, but I do not think it would be as evident in me in all areas of my life if I did not have the people around me to bring it out. Working out has become a part of me and I do not know how I would be doing without it. I thank TWIST for reaching the goals that I have reached so far, but I know that as much as I want to keep being successful, they want that for me as well.
I started with TWIST in Sept of 2012.
I feel my body is slower to rebuild, but I can honestly say that it has changed my life. I have the ability now to do things I thought would never be simple again. The trainers that I am working with are so incredible. They have helped me to see my potential and power and they encourage me every week to challenge my self.
I have had may set backs and have always over pushed myself to be as strong and as powerful as I was in my 20’s walking on mountain tops at 12,000 feet.
I TWIST !
Thank you Peter and the TWIST Team!
I just wanted to thank you both again for your incredible warmth and positivity since I began my Fall term in 2013 at Twist!
You continue to inspire me, motivate me, and keep me focused on my goals. You push me past my comfort zone and reign me in when I get ahead of myself. You’ve helped me get through the inevitable stalls in weight loss by reminding me of all the other measures of success I’m achieving weekly in my workouts.
You treat me like an athlete in training and it’s rubbing off on me.
I no longer diet and exercise. I eat right and train. Like an athlete!
Thank you so much for all your efforts and support!
I am an active mid-fifties adult and have been training at TWIST for over 3 years. Conditioning is certainly more of a challenge at my age but they have provided me with a very effective option. The coaches take the time to understand my needs, goals and limitations with a very knowledgeable and personalized approach. TWIST is not a generic fitness facility where someone is given a “trainer” t-shirt and then unleashed on the masses. The TWIST staff are fully qualified, professional and motivate me to achieve my unique conditioning goals. TWIST is absolutely worth the extra investment….in the end you get what you pay for !! I always feel that I am in good hands with TWIST .
Since I started at TWIST I’ve felt a huge benefit to my energy, strength, stress and other health indicators. Can’t deny the health benefit of weight loss too, it’s now 47lbs for me and that feels great too. I needed to be active every day and make some eating changes, and so far so good. All the coaches have been fantastic and TWIST has become a very important part of my life.
