Fitness Testimonials

“We have been working with Anne for over a year now, and I must say, we both look forward to our weekly sessions with her. She comes prepared each week with a carefully designed workout to meet our needs and goals and works us hard, keeping up a steady patter of interesting conversation while doing so to ensure that we never get bored. We feel like she genuinely cares about us, which means a lot!”

- Frank and Kitty

"I've gone to 5 sessions of speed and agility with Jamal. I like him as a coach because he teaches us fun stuff. The first class I was a bit like nah, but now I'm like yes sir."

-Frank, age 8

“This note is to let you know how much I appreciate my trainer Mary Alice (MacDonald). She is a very patient person. She explains everything I am doing and is always encouraging me to continue if I can. She is good at gently reminding me about good posture. She listens to my concerns and is flexible when working around my schedule. I feel that I have learned a lot about the equipment and how it affects my muscle groups.”

“Silver Sneakers is wonderful, Jennifer (Tackett) really cares about the people. I stand the whole class and do all the exercises. I just had surgery in July and was back in 4 weeks. These exercises helped me recover quicker and get back to normal. I’m even back to using the stairs and not the elevator.”

- Jean, 98-year-old Silver Sneakers participant

“I’ve been doing Jamal’s class “Active Recovery Express” for four to six weeks now. It’s basically a stretch class for the hips and lower back. Since I’ve been doing it, I’ve been able to play pickleball longer and move quicker.”

"The Blue Springs Fieldhouse has provided a great environment for me to keep fit at 70 years old. From Silver Sneakers, Yoga Stretch, the fitness center, a personal trainer to get me off on the right foot, and so many other opportunities to help me grow in my fitness goals. The other parts of the Fieldhouse that keep me coming are the comradery in the classes, the staff and their helpfulness, and the cleanliness of the facility.”
