    Great work outs. They have great trainers but didn't work with my schedule. They weren't able to negotiate anything with me as they said that they would in the beginning. I ended up wasting money.

    We are glad you enjoyed your workouts and appreciated the experience and education our trainers provide. We are sorry that you were not completely satisfied, especially since investing time and money in one's health is so important! We try to accommodate our client's requests as best we can by offering early morning, late evening, weekend hours as well as putting their accounts on hold. We would welcome you back when your schedule lightens up and look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

    Kibria and staff did exactly what they said they would. They first did a thorough analysis of my current state and created a plan tailored specifically for my needs. I have been going for 2 weeks and have been feeing stronger and confident.

    Outstanding place, I went in tight with limited range of motion. After working out with Kibria and Joe, my hips feel loser, my shoulders have more range of motion, and my legs/ body feels stronger after all the unconventional training

    Optimum Heath & Fitness provides me with an alternative workout unlike anything I have done before. It allows me to have a structured workout that has optimal results. The people that work at Optimum are professional and care about their clients and its shows with their detailed workouts designed for any level from beginners to advanced. I would recommend them for anyone looking for a great workout that keeps the body guessing with their constant change of workouts each time you take a class. Overall, Optimum is an excellent place to workout and I have enjoyed my experience immensely so far and look forward to continuing with Optimum in the future.
