Dear Cardio Plus Staff, Members and General Public,
In 2005 my wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I asked that she get me a membership to Cardio Plus. It had been over 5 years since I had attempted any type of consistent workout. I was grossly over-weight, had high blood pressure and my cholesterol was way out of whack. In a nutshell: I was facing going on medication and having to change my lifestyle. Fortunately, when my wife inquired about the membership, she was convinced to get me a trainer to kick start me.
On January 6th, 2006 I started working out with Kellen Madison. I must say that was the best Christmass present and most important event that has happened to me in a long time. Kellen listened while I told him of my goals and my physical shortfalls and proceeded to establish an effective workout schedule and very tolerable diet. I am glad to say that in 7 months Kellen had my blood pressure and cholesterol at optimal levels and I therefore avoided having to go on meds. In addition, Kellen has strengthened me and got me in good shape to enjoy my two greatest passions, hunting and fishing. In that same 7 months Kellen took me from a size 42" waist to, a size 34" (comfortable). My Doctors as well as my family have all been amazed. Needless to say, I am ecstatic and very thankful for the transformation of this now 54 year-old body. I have the energy and enthusiasm I enjoyed in my 30's (Still have to remember I am 54 and not bullet proof though)! All joking aside, I am grateful to Kellen and the entire staff at Cardio Plus. This has turned out to be on of the most beneficial relationships I have developed in several years. The entire staff and the people you work out with are just fantastic!
I can only say that if your are ready to make a lifestyle change and give working out another whirl, I strongly recommend that you inquire about a membership and trainer at Cardio Plus. I am eternally grateful for what the staff at Cardio Plus has done for me! Last but not least. I give thanks to God for giving me the strength "For through Christ we can do all things, but aside from Him we can do nothing."

I am thrilled to say I have met my goal of losing 20lbs in 9 weeks. It hasn't been easy, but it has been well worth it. I have so much more energy now and I am excited to reach my next goal. I enjoy my workouts at Cardio Plus and I consider them "my time"... no distractions from work or children.
I would encourage anyong to set some time aside for their own health, even if you feel you are too busy, you need to put your own health as a top priority, for yourself and your family.
Cardio Plus makes it easy with their 24 hour access and great atmosphere for adults to workout. I know my determination to get fit has helped me, my family and my business - Total Design Interiors.
