I have never made such life changing decision like the one I made to work with the team at ABSolute Fitness NC. I came to this facility struggling with not only physical turmoil, but mental and emotional conflict as well. My relationships were suffering, I was unsure the direction my career was going, and I had a general apathy for many facets of my life. The systems their team used to begin my transformation took effect immediately. From the very first day, we discussed what I hoped to achieve and the requirements needed to accomplish those goals, reviewed correct dieting habits, and reasonable time lines for me to start seeing results. But what really stood out was the constant reinforcement to visualize the end product I was working towards. Ron sums it up best with these four words… “See your future self”. I never realized how powerful those words were until I witnessed them overcome the doubt I initially had about myself and what I was capable of.

Ever since my experience, I have never felt more confident, more in charge, and more optimistic about my future. It really is incredible how so simple the equation worked; Improved body + Improved focus + Positive outlook = Happiness! I no longer have doubts about what I can accomplish, no longer feel like my direction is out of control. I am forever grateful for what the team at ABSolute Fitness NC has done for me, and continue to use the dynamic change they helped create in me to improve every aspect of my life.

My name is Shirley. I am 76 years old and have been going to Absolute Fitness for 18 months…. and plan to keep on going. I always look forward to my training; I work very hard, and the results have been wonderful. I have lost over 30lbs, 30+ inches and have more energy and stamina than ever before. Even my doctor complemented me on the changes. At my annual physical a few months ago, he called all my test results “superb”. My cholesterol was the lowest it’s ever been, I have the heart of a 45 year old, and my blood pressure medicine is steadily being reduced and I hope to be off of it completely very soon. That has been one of my long term goals.

My 3 times a week work outs with my trainers are always challenging, different and have overall improved my balance, dexterity, flexibility, and strength. It always amuses me that I waited till my mid 70’s to take action with my health, and that this is the time in my life when I feel the most fit and connected with my body . I just wish I would have taken action sooner! Thank you Team Absolute Fitness, you are the best!

Absolute Fitness is by far the best decision I made when it came to choosing a gym and personal training. The incredibly friendly staff and members make this place feel like a small tight-knit community where everyone knows your name. The trainers work closely with you, using a very detailed, even scientific method to help you achieve your fitness goals. It is virtually impossible to fail if you have the ambition. I HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to give Absolute Fitness a shot. I lost 18 lbs and 4 inches off my waist in 2.5 months, gained tons of muscle growth and most importantly, feel incredible! I cannot thank them enough.

I walked into ABSolute Fitness NC just casually looking to “join a gym”. Like so many others who make the same mistake, I thought to myself “joining a gym is taking care of my health needs”. Yet after I arrived and went into the same old routine that I did at the last gym I was a member of, I observed the training team working with clients in a small group setting and it was fascinating how challenging yet enjoyable the experience appeared. I was compelled to break free of my comfort zone and give it a try.

Within a few months of staying consistent with the training, the weight I was hoping to lose started melting away. I made new friends that I meet through the group, I found a balance in life that was missing before, and I felt as vibrant and attractive as I did when I was younger. I enjoy running marathons, and my performance has never been better. The exercise we do not just improves the body, but my confidence and focus has never been better.

This place is more than just a gym, it’s a foundry for crafting one’s self into a great as you wish to become. Thank you so much Team ABSolute Fitness!
