I’ve spent nearly a year working with a personal trainer at VI Fitness. During that time I’ve lost over 50lbs and gained a level of physical and mental fitness I never thought possible at 56. When I started working with my trainer, I was overweight, recovering from a shoulder and back injury and extremely out of shape. I avoided even simple exercise and was in pain a lot of the time…

I joined VI Fitness about one year ago after moving to Victoria. Although I have worked out for several years, I noticed a plateau with my workout routine. I felt like I was spending a lot of time at the gym without achieving the desired results and my work outs were lacking any real structure. I decided it was time to sign up with a personal trainer to help guide me towards my goals…

Shortly after my 49th birthday I decided that it was time to set a goal and become Fit by Fifty. After signing up for a body assessment and getting those disturbing results there was no going back. With the encouragement of the staff and hiring personal trainer, I was able to reach my goal and more. It took self control, determination and dedication to the routines set for me each week.

I really enjoy (well maybe enjoy isn’t the right word) working out at your facility and your staff make it a great place to be. You are an amazing bunch of women. Thanks for the fun and the sweat. You all make it so much fun to be there…

VictoriaRead More

I have been a VIFFW member since at least 2001, maybe even longer. I’ve always enjoyed the atmosphere of working out at a club exclusively for women. The staff is always courteous and helpful and I enjoy my experiences there. I really appreciate that the manager, she greets me by name every time I come to the gym. I also like the fact that the members range in age, size and physical fitness levels…
