Program Testimonial

"The management and coaches at this location make everyone feel very welcome and allowed some flexability in finding my proper starting group; which in turn allowed me to become a very happy walker instead of a drop-out. Overall, I truly enjoy the spirit of everyone I have met through this training and look forward to another session."
