Jena D. {Member}
Bristol, Connecticut

I never thought I would post this first pic because when I saw it earlier this year I cried for days. I am posting it as motivation to never get back there, to get up when my alarm goes off and go to the gym and to remind myself that although I have a long way to go I have already made a lot of progress.

Richard Enos {Member}
Warwick, Rhode Island

My experiencve is that for the most major life changes there's a light switch moment. It's the moment when a light is turned on that highlights the need for change...change that is needed but often overlooked until that moment in time when you realize it's not only needed, but required.

Betty Shedd {Member}

I've been working with Luke McLean since September and so pleased with the results Luke and I have achieved in that time. I originally signed up for only 24 sessions but re-upped for an additional 24 as I am feeling felt stronger, more confident in myself and much healthier and I want this feeling to continue. I have to admit that prior to working with Luke I was not 'into' the gym and working out at all. I nice walk on the beach was my favorite type of workout.

Jim Shea EL.jpg

Jim Shea {Member}

My personal Coach Heather gave me this analogy regarding my physical body last December 2017; “Your brain has been guiding your body in the same broken path for years, so we need to teach it to walk a new path”. This was her Jedi way of expressing that my hips have been compensating for years from a lower back injury.

Marilyn Folcik {Member}
Bristol, Connecticut

I came to Healthtrax almost one year ago because I retired and was getting too sedentary and gaining weight. I figured if I became involved in a program then I would be more apt to stick with it and it would get me out of the house. During my initial tour of the facility, I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the facility.

Tess King {Member}

When I first started many exercises were difficult because of my knee but after 4 months I was back to competitive tennis. I had a setback due to a bone spur but once medically cleared to come back I started working with Sandra again and feel stronger than I have in years. I also worked with a nutritionist that has aided me in my weight loss along the way.

Tony Mazzarella{Member}
Hanover, Massachussets

I’ve been a member of Healthtrax in Hanover, MA for a few years and I signed up to train with Nikki Ferreira back in October of 2017.  The experience has been life changing and I felt compelled to provide this feedback.  I have always been somewhat active but I had no idea what to expect as I’ve never had private sessions.  I didn’t even know where to start but in our first meeting/interview Nikki made me extremely comfortable and took the time to understand what I was looking to accomplish.

Stacey Modaress-Razavi {Member}
Raleigh, NC

I've always been overweight as a kid and I became medically obese in my 40s once I had my two wonderful kiddos. Dieting and Weight Watchers never worked for me, because as soon as I lost the weight, it would come right back with a few of it's friends. I tried a few gyms in the past, but unfortunately, it felt like everyone there was dressed like they were looking for a date. Sooooo, not me.


Steven Katz {Member}
Garden City, New York

I do not often post on Facebook, but I wanted to relay the great experience that I have had since joining Healthtrax in Garden City, NY in November, 2017. The equipment in the gym is well-varied and maintained in excellent condition. Both the gym and locker room are immaculately clean. The staff has been very courteous. In particular, I'd like to thank one of the trainers, Elliott, for his encouragement and advice on the gym floor.

Becca Baker {Member & Staff}
East Greenwich, Rhode Island

When I first started coming to the gym I was not only new to the area but I also had two small children who had begun attending a local pre-school and I decided to use my newly found time to the benefit of my health. I started putting around with a few weights and burying myself in the movie room (which I love), until finally I had gotten up the nerve to try a class.

Alisa Becker {Member} & Nico Ritirato {Staff}
Garden City, New York

I've been meaning to email you regarding Nico Ritirato for quite sometime. I joined Healthtrax in September, and after some consideration, decided to try Personal Training. Since Nico was the trainer with whom I had my initial consultation, I felt I should give him a try, as well. Fast forward 6 months. Nico has truly transformed me.

Erin has changed my outlook on working out forever. In the past, I only did cardio exercise.  She has taught me specific weight training routines and body weight training, along with a more effective cardio routine.  The knowledge I have gained and the results from these routines have astonished me. The confidence, how I stand , the strength,how my body has changed.  Being fit and healthy feels Great! I have Erin to thank for all of this, best decision to do personal training with her!

Athan Hantzopoulos {Member}
Warwick, Rhode Island

I have always struggled with being overweight throughout my life. After my mother passed away in 2013 from cancer, I started eating “comfort food” to deal with the loss and I gained a lot of weight and my physical appearance drastically changed. I realized that I needed to start and lose weight after looking myself in the mirror one day and realizing how much I had let myself go. I didn’t like to take pictures of myself with friends and family because I was embarrassed about the way that I looked.


Diane Cewe NH before.jpg

Diane Cewe {Member}
North Haven, Connecticut

I initially was reluctant joining the gym because of how I looked.  I was very self conscious of my weight, how I looked and the shape I was in.  The medical practice I work for moved next door to Heakthtrax and several of the management staff came to our building and spoke to us about the benefits of joining the gym.  I was very impressed by them and thought I would give the gym a try.  When I first visited the gym, the staff was absolutely amazing.

Laura Fredrickson {Member}
Newington, Connecticut

Today I had the pleasure of meeting one of our members Laura Fredrickson for a check in on her progress at Healthtrax Fitness & Wellness. She started her journey with Craig McCabe showing her the facility and making her feel comfortable. After signing up, she meet with Antonio L. Garcia for her Healthy Start Assessment and Inbody570 scan. Antonio L. Garcia went over realistic goals and explain how we can help as a center. I meet with Laura today to rerun the Inbody570 scan and check her progress. As I sat down and talk to Laura I was very impressed with her journey and progress. We patiently waited to see the results of the inbody570 and we both we so excited with the info!!! Laura dropped 54.4 pounds, and 45 pounds of fat. Laura dropped her body fat % by 12.5 %. Her visceral level fat dropped 11 points, from a 20 to a 9!!! Laura dropped 7 pounds of muscle which is to be expected when you dropped that much weight. She can definitely fine tune and get that back. I just wanted to show this process of how things can work when you work the process and have people who are routing for you. We here at Healthtrax Fitness & Wellness are very proud of Laura and wish her nothing but continue success!!! - Matt Wrobel, Newington

I have lost 35 pounds and 3 sizes while gaining strength and energy. I attend Group Fitness Classes with Karen Blazeff, Becca Marino, Allison Dehner, Catherine Woodard and work with a personal trainer; Michael Peterson.

Lisa Shelanskas {Member}
Enfield, Connecticut

Let me start with, I had never been to a gym in my life, I hated gym class in school, and I am not athletic.  I just knew, to regain the strength I had lost due to getting older, combined with 2 foot surgeries and 2 knee surgeries in 5 years, I had to do something.  My golden carrot to actually step in a gym, was a planned trip of a life time, rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon for 9 days in June 2017.  I equally knew this trip had side hikes up canyon walls, that I was not physically able to do, and I didn't want to miss.
