I would like to take this opportunity to express to the staff at Associated Therapeutics Jump Start how grateful I am for their service to me while I have been going there. Each one is always friendly, helpful, encouraging, and ready to answer questions I may have. Thank you for a job well done. Their advice is always needed and appreciated.
I have been attending Jump Start since 2005. Since then I have lost 167 lbs and still going! The staff helped me in choosing the correct machines and exercises that would help me reach my fitness goal. I enjoy coming here because it is a noncompetitive relaxing environment. I am not a couch potato any more, I get up and move. I am so thankful to Jump Start staff for helping me get my life back. Keep up the good work.
Nine years after I retired, I found that my weight had ballooned to 184. For someone only five feet, one inch, that was far too much weight. I became concerned with the possibility of diabetes or heart attack and knew that I had to do something. I joined Associated Therapeutics Jump Start Health & Fitness, hoping that the activity would help me lose weight. For several years I occasionally worked out or joined a Stretch N' Flex class. Nothing helped me lose the weight. My doctor suggested that I find a trainer, so at age 71 I began to train with Melody.
I had never lifted weights before so many of the exercises were difficult, but I kept trying. Over the course of a year, I lost thirty-five pounds. Currently I am working towards losing the last ten pounds of my goal. I work with Melody twice a week for an hour and usually walk on the treadmill for thirty minutes before each session. She varies the exercises so that I never do the same thing two days or even weeks in a row.
I am proud to say that my clothing size has changed and most of my clothes are much too large, some of them by four sizes. Also, I have much more energy than before. Sometimes my stamina is not as great as we would like, but that should change over time. In many respects, having Melody as a trainer is one of the best things I ever did.

After two total hip replacements and a lower back condition, I can unequivocally say that I have been very well pleased with the results. Although I live less than two miles from another facility, I elected to continue coming to Associated Therapeutics because of the friendly, congenial atmosphere. Over the past 12 years, I've lost at least 60 pounds. The staff makes every person feel important. They are helpful, kind and always have time to give a word of encouragement.
