Success Story: Licia McClary
I am a newer member to the Atlantic Club (May 2011) but I feel like I joined a family. From the minute we made my our aspiration appointments our lives have been forever changed. For me personally, Christina Johnson was the trainer who initially met with me and from the moment I met her, I knew she was the trainer for me. I am now very grateful I could get her as a trainer.
I went from being a person who had not stepped into a gym EVER or even did a single sit up to a person who feels like her life is just beginning! I joined on my 48th birthday and because of her I have become dedicated to living a new healthier lifestyle. She has been my personal guardian angel who never wavers from making sure I stay strong, focused and enthusiastic! I can do things today I could never even dream of doing before. I will never be able to thank her enough for truly changing my life...
At one point in the summer, Christina was taking a vacation and she wanted to make sure I would be comfortable with a good match for a trainer to fill in for her while she was gone. During that time, I got to work with Lisa Flanegan. Lisa is also just a fabulous person. She made the temporary transition so easy for me. She demonstrated such dedication to me that I never lost a step. She makes you feel like you can do anything and she made me feel like she will always be there for me. I see her working out on my cardio days when I am without a personal trainer and she has become a motivator to me. She is like the energizer bunny and she may not know it but she makes me try harder and stay at the gym longer to really be on track when Christina and I are not doing our weight work outs.
Aside from myself, my boyfriend Rich (who actually bought our initial memberships as a birthday present to me) has made extremely important
life changes because of his trainer. Rich was told by his doctor that he has to lose weight to reduce his blood pressure. My trainer knew both of us and she felt Kevin Byrnes would be a good fit for Rich.They hit it off immediately and Kevin always re assured me that he would take good care of Rich and keep him focused. Most every day I would see Kevin and fill him in on what Rich was doing on his days off from the gym and Kevin would make me feel confident that he would get Rich back on track. This is what I mean by family, I am not Kevin's personal client but he always takes a few moments for me to feel
involved. Rich has now turned a major corner because of Kevin and I thank him for getting him there.Although Rich can't be at the gym as much as me due to work, family commitment etc. Kevin became the force he needed to stick with it. I give him the credit for waking Rich up and changing his/our lives.
Finally both Rich and I signed up for body works and we are working with Louisa Rodriguez. She helps us both get through the aches and pains (good ones) and she knows how to get our bodies ready for the next round. We have both frequented various types of massages over the years but we both agree that she is far superior to any of the people we have ever gone to before. Between her personality and her magic hands we are both grateful to have her as our Body Works guru!
The Atlantic Club should know that it is because of these individuals that we were lucky enough to be connected with with at your facility that we have a new outlook on life. I wanted to make sure the right people there know about them from a clients personal prospective and experience.
People always take time to pass along negative information but far too many times don't bother the share positive feedback. For what it is worth, they have changed our lives and we hope the management knows it is nice for clients to attend a beautiful looking establishment but its the people whom you come in contact with that truly make the difference!
My sincere thanks and gratitude!
