I can honestly say that I’m in better shape at 42 than I was at 32 and maybe even 22 years old. The Trainers Edge is a great place to work out – you get more done in 30-45 minutes there than weeks at a Globo gym. During workouts, there’s some competitive rivalry among friends but everyone cheers and challenges each other to improve and get healthier. (You’ll have to visit to get a sense of the ‘family’ aspects of The Trainers Edge.) I really like the fact that I go in each day and have no idea what the WOD (workout of the day) is until I stare at the white board. That ‘unknown’ is exciting because you’re never in a rut. John will also help you understand how diet and rest are essential to peak fitness. While The Trainers Edge doesn’t hold you to a strict diet (I love McRibs and beer), they will coach you on what/how to eat. The other thing I love about The Trainers Edge is that you get training/supervision in every workout. The monthly cost is very reasonable considering the 1-on-1 attention and the well-maintained equipment. Just be prepared to work outside or get a little dirty occasionally. There are no “machines” – it’s mostly body weight exercises, Olympic weights, and crazy stuff like ropes, kettlebells, abmats, medicine walls, sand bags, rowers, and plywood boxes. Pros: An @ss-kickin’ workout each day. One-on-one attention. Real progress toward true fitness. New gym friends. Cons: Addictive WODs. Feeling guilty when you eat McRibs. Sore for the first few weeks… In summary, I can’t think of a better, more fun way to exercise than The Trainers Edge. I have tried small gyms, large gyms, and globo gyms — none compare to the benefits of The Trainers Edge. Just be mentally prepared for a rough first few weeks until your body adjusts to the new demands it hasn’t seen since you did high school sports!
