Due to a medical issue and subsequent surgery, I had gained about 20 lbs and felt depressed and tired all the time. I knew I desperately needed to lose weight and regain my health. I had recently moved to Erie and was given a recommendation to a large “wellness center” here. I checked it out and tried it free for a day. It was too big and too fancy for me. I looked online and found Real Training and Fitness. I walked in and knew this place would work for me. Everyone from Jake at the front desk, Tony, the manager and the owner Jack Sullivan were welcoming, friendly and nonjudgmental. I signed up for personal training with Shea Sullivan. It took me a few months to get a consistent schedule established, mainly due to my fatigue and work responsibilities. But I started to see results! 6 months after starting I had lost the 20 lbs and gained muscle mass and my self esteem back!
I could not have done it without Shea. He is strict but very understanding. He knows what he is doing and will push hard, always making sure that I maintain good form and avoid injury. He also helps me with Nutrition guidance. Tony and Jack are very supportive and I feel like I have my own personal cheerleaders!
I know I still have a long way to go but I am very proud of where I am today. I owe RTF a big “Thank you”!
