Being an athlete has always been an integral part of my life, and as time goes on, I realize that participating in sports at multiple levels of my life requires not only that I learn the skills for the sport, but also the importance of caring for the body that helps me perform my best. I've learned that fitness is a battle, much like faith. The same way I have to fight for what I believe in against lies of culture, I also have to fight for my health. You are your own best advocate, and no one else is going to give you the results you want. The fight is agony, but it's your fight. That's my challenge and encouragement to you. You have been given a gift--your body. Your gift has been given to you for a purpose and you need to fight to discover that purpose, because only you will live inside your body. If you are the person waiting for the right motivation, the perfect pill or the magical surgery to erase your weight loss struggle, start fighting today. If you are believing the lies of the media that says you're not beautiful or handsome unless you look a certain way, start fighting that lie today. Fight with certainty, bringing your body into submission through discipline. And compete with strategy, by casting off the burdens that make you slower, & run toward the prize of a new life. Let's start fighting for our lives today.

    I was apprehensive about hiring a trainer, but after having knee surgery, I needed some help. Rita is a trainer at Fitness Pointe, Munster, IN, who makes an effort to meet the members when she is on the floor. She is always available. After having a conversation about my health goals, Rita made some suggestions. I followed these suggestions but decided I wanted more. Thus, the training began. Rita customized a program for me. She knew what I wanted to improve upon and that is what we worked on. Her workouts were rigorous, varied, and designed to build strength. To motivate me, Rita provided articles to read, she encouraged nutritional changes, and checked my food journal regularly. She measured me at the beginning of our training commitment, in the middle, and at the end. I had weight loss and also lost inches. :) Rita was professional. She was always on time and flexible in the scheduling if adjustments needed to be made. Rita builds a relationship with her clients. She is an attentive listener that is soft spoken but firm in her commitment to achieve your fitness goals. I would highly recommend Rita for your trainer.

    I feel that Rita makes a customized workout just for you. It is not going to be easy but she makes sure to whip me into shape. I am just one month in and I am feeling fantastic and looking forward to great results. She makes me feel as tough and empowered not just over my weight but my life choices. She is fun and I look forward to many more "burns" with her!!

    Rita is absolute the best! She has great techniques, is an excellent instructor and motivates you to continue when you think you can’t go on. She mixes it up and adjusts workouts to progressively build strength and endurance. I’ve seen great improvement in my muscle tone, weight, and overall wellbeing! I never thought that I’d enjoy working out but low and behold…I look forward to Rita’s visits! This is by far one of the best investments that I’ve ever made for myself.

    There is never a dull training day. Rita takes HOME personal training and really makes it PERSONAL. Every session is unique and well planned for me. She makes something that I need to do into something that I look forward to doing.... most of the times!?!?

    Great trainer! We’ve been working together for about three months. Helped me realized that it’s possible to work out at home and helped me find my strengths. Worked on my resistance; learned a lot of different exercises. I am very happy with her.
