What our clients say...

I have managed to lose 17 pounds

When I first came to Element, I was overweight, out of shape and under confident. Element has changed all of that for me. Working out with a trainer just two days a week, I have managed to lose 17 pounds, 3 pant sizes and several inches off my entire body. I am extremely happy with the results and I know that I couldn’t have done it without my trainer. From trainers, to instructors, and staff, everyone is always so friendly and helpful. With their help, I have truly found a way to be in “My Element Body, Mind & Spirit.

My walking will continue to improve

I was in a wheelchair most of the time with occasional short distances on crutches. Physical therapy had released me from treatment and gave me no hope of improving. I joined Element Fitness, started working with a trainer and attending Silver Sneaker classes, and can now walk with a cane. With continued hard work from myself, trainer, and participation, my walking will continue to improve.

Element Fitness has awesome instructors

Quite overweight and out of shape when I joined Element Fitness To shed pounds and improve my overall fitness. By participating in the group fitness classes, I have lost more than 65 pounds and went from size 18 jeans to size 8 jeans! Initially, I was nervous about joining the group fitness classes because I was afraid that I would feel out of place or not have the ability to do some of the exercises.

Fortunately, Element Fitness has awesome instructors who immediately made me feel at ease and showed me that the classes are structured in a way to accommodate people of all fitness levels. The classes are fun and effective, and the instructors are high energy, friendly and encouraging–all of the elements I needed to keep me motivated and coming back. A year and a half later, I regularly participate in BodyStep, BodyCombat, BodyPump and Spinning, and am a much healthier and happier (and smaller!) mom, wife and friend

@ ELEMENT FITNESS, I just wanted to tell you a few things about my experience with personal training at Element Fitness. I am a Silver Sneaker Member a program for seniors through my insurance. Overweight, out of shape, knees needing surgery, hurt shoulder, broken finger and with muscles that had been sleeping for about 30 years, I knew that I’d be a “Project”. My trainer addressed all areas. We worked the muscles around the knees to let me walk normally. I couldn’t kneel in church–I now kneel as needed. I was taking Aleve and now don’t take it much. Pain is gone. Shoulder problem was in the muscle and it was addressed and it’s back to normal. My cardio has improved, and showed me how to use the machines and low impact results. Now, recently I moved 2 tons of lumber from Weston, Mo to my place in Lawrence, Kansas (Load and unload, by hand) the next day I cut and verticut the yard and bagged the waste. Not long ago, this was impossible.
