Never in a million years, did I think I would be willing to write an updated review for GISFW-Arlington. But here I am. The new owner responded to my previous review and when I contacted him he was 100% willing to do whatever he could to make my situation right. He was generous, sincere and apologetic. He convinced me that he really wants to be a part of this community and make a contribution. He also believes passionately in the integrity of the GISFW program and the difference it can make in women's lives. WOW....this is a far cry from the attitude of the previous owner. I was/am so impressed that I'm going to give it a try for one month (free as part of his generous offer). I'll be back with another update at that time, but for now I'm feeling much better about this business.

Worst.Gym.Ever – The manager is rude, disrespectful and maiplutive. There is no equiptment. They give you the same workout for everyone. They do not help children. they manipulate. they have caused many injuries and is overpriced. avoid at all costs.

Awesome Gym in Arlington, MA – I've been going to this Get in Shape for two years now and am about to join for my third!! The trainers are great; they really know their stuff and help make sure my form is right on to maximize the results of my workout and to make sure I don't hurt myself. On top of that, they are sooo motivating, which helps when you are trying to keep yourself going! Go in and ask for the manager, Chelsea. She's very friendly and very encouraging. Love her and the gym!!
Best thing I have ever done for myself – I have had a great experience at Get in Shape for Women in Arlington. I have been to many gyms before and have not been as happy as I am now at Get In Shape. The trainers are excellent and find different was to challenge me every session. I am in better shape now then I was before I had my kids. I have lost 10 inches and am wearing clothes that I have not been able to wear for years! Along with a great staff, I have met some amazing women that are also working towards a goal just like me which is very motivating. I would recommend Get in Shape for Women to anyone that is looking for a support system and great environment to exercise in.
Great. We appreciate it.
$3000 Mistake- Buyers Beware – If there was an option for "no stars", I would choose it. I joined GISFW in Arlington last year and it was an expensive mistake for several reasons. First, I was injured within my first week there and it took many, many months to obtain a partial and unsatisfactory refund. Secondly, I was insulted repeatedly by the owner who insinuated that my injury and 4 doctor's notes were a sham. Thirdly, the workout routine is a cookie cutter approach to fitness. Whether you're 20 years old or 75, the trainers will put you through the same exact workout with little or no consideration for individual needs and/or limitations. Fourthly, their "nutritional plan" consisted of a one-page instruction sheet suggesting several protein shakes a day. Lastly, this was a ridiculous price to pay for any workout facility, let alone one that is substandard. With so many wonderful fitness centers and Personal Trainers in Arlington, it's just plain silly to choose this place. I for one have learned my lesson and now just stick to the basics; a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise. I strongly suggest you do the same.

Very good experience – I'm sorry for those individuals who felt they did not get their money's worth of services. $3000 is a lot -- and a wonderful motivator. I train approx. three times each week -- which averages $19/hour. I have used other professional trainers, but never less than $60/hour. During the hour I am there I am always being encouraged and pushed to the extreme. It is difficult, but the results are wonderful. And when my form is incorrect, the trainer is quickly at my side to correct it. As far as a nutrionist goes, I find the owner consistent in his suggestions, and yes they are printed out. The "problem" I find is that I am not as consistent -- frequently diverting from the suggested foods only to find that I'm the one sabbotaging my goal. Exercise is hard; eating the correct foods for my body shape even harder. However, that's the contract I signed and am expected to comply with.
Great place for a focused workout! – I've been going to Get in Shape for Women in Arlington since it opened over a year ago and look forward to every workout! The trainers and owner are hands on and work closely with you to accomplish your goals! I've learned a lot of different techniques and it's been a total success! I recommend it to anyone looking for something different with great results!
Great. Thank you.
A rewarding experience – I have been a member of Get In Shape for Women for 5 months. I couldn't be happier with the staff that knows when I need a push. The trainers are so amazing. They are friendly and professional every single day. They motivate me to reach my weight loss goals with real solutions- nutritional consultations, frank discussions about what certain foods will do to the body, delicious recipies and ENCOURAGEMENT!
The hour of exercise that they have tweaked for my specific needs has transformed me.
I look forward to my hour every day and can't imagine that I could achieve what I have if I had to go to a regular gym and fumble around on my own. Thank you, GISFW, from the bottom of my healthier heart!
You are welcome.
