5. YouFit Health Clubs (Mahan Dr)
"One of the major reasons that caused me to join YouFit was cleanliness. The gym is cleaned frequently, a necessity for me. I had a double lung transplant on December 4, 2012. This means that I have my immune suppressed to the point of non-existence. I can catch almost any infection and it can kill me; I have no defense. I am also on a medley of drugs that I am required to take every day and will do so for the rest of my life. One of the requirements imposed on me by may medical professionals is that I join and attend a gym; if I do not do this, the side effects of some of my drugs will cause my bones to weaken and I will no longer be able to walk. I need a gym and it must be clean.
I had attended YouFit for several years, but I had no real training or knowledge about how to properly use a gym and its equipment. I had made progress in fitness, but not as much as I had hoped. I was very run down when I first joined in February of 2013 and needed to get better. In September 2017 I was introduced to the personal trainer program and offered a chance to try it. I have been participating in it since then. It has made a huge difference in my physical ability and in my frame of mind. My trainer is Shane Hunt. He is polite, knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely helpful. At first he was somewhat cautious with me since I have medical problems, but I assured him that I would not break and he has since become a major asset in my health improvement. I am finding that bettering my strength and endurance also improves my resistance to infections. My overall health has improved markedly and my mental outlook has kept pace with it. Overall, I only wish I had started this program sooner. I intend to continue it."
