After years of putting on the yearly 50 lbs and not being able to move because of arthritis, I knew I had to do something. My doctor prescribed exercise and laughter and that is when I found Tone 'N Shape.

It wasn't easy in the beginning. I had stiff joints, excessive weight and no endurance. It was slow going, but Valerie, the owner, was there to encourage me whether it was circuit training or one of the many classes. Can you believe I now hula hoop!! The results have been amazing!

I  have fun, increased energy, less body fat, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and a positive outlook and appearance.

The facility is clean and the people are wonderful.

Thank you, Tone 'N Shape!

I started my lifestyle change in Sept. 2010. It took me a year to lose over 70 lbs. I truly believe that it is a combination of exercise and a complete new way of looking at nutrition. It will never be a "diet" for me, because that means it's only temporary. I have managed to keep the weight off for over a year. I don't ever plan on putting it back on, and if I am off my weight by a pound or two I cut back for a week. I would like to thank Val and all the wonderful ladies at Tone 'N Shape for all their support. There were days when I wanted to give up and say, forget it, but when I came in here I knew it was where I needed to be. Val's combination of cardio, weights and classes is a wonderful way to get in shape, and more importantly, stay in shape!

So, again, THANKS VAL and everyone else!!
