Member SUCCESS STORIES
Anne Sloop, Grandmother of 4:
"My journey over the last year has been a long one. Experiencing 2 hip surgeries, physical therapy and biweekly workouts, has brought me to a new level of strength and appreciation. My trainer conscientiously and knowledgeably adapts my routine of exercises to develop my confidence and strength! My hip continues to heal even after a year, and I am so grateful to Success Studio for all they offer to me and others.
Matt Joslyn, Executive Director of Live Arts:

"The team at Success Studio is changing my life. Twelve months ago I was an overweight, over stressed, unhealthy, chain smoking young man incapable of facing the fact that I did not take care of myself – physically and emotionally. Now, I work with my stress coach each week to create more balance in my life and to learn better methods of responding to challenges. I work with my trainer at least twice a week in personal training – he motivates me to push myself beyond my limits. I feel profoundly better, inside and out because of my time at Success Studio. "
