I was reasonably healthy, had never smoked, and was not overweight. I did not engage in any special exercise. I was however a walker. I was told that I had a weak heart valve and that exercise would probably strengthen it. LJ’s set up a program of exercises that were suitable. My weight and BFI were within the normal range. Lynn has suggested additional exercise during my years of membership. Subsequent tests involving my heart have shown an improvement in the heart valve problem.

I’ve never been able to do a pushup in my life. But due to Body Pump, I can now do a few but I plan on getting stronger to do more.

LJ’s is not only a place that enhances physical attribute; it also challenges the mind and brings the community together. The staff is knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The free weights combines with the variety of classes has improved my overall performance and health. My cholesterol went down, my times are faster with my running and I have more strength. The staff provides a challenge every day I enter the gym.
