They are toxic

Ok, I’m leaving my review now even though it’s been almost a year since I left the Elite because I recently joined a new gym, and it’s so much better. I didn’t know that the Elite Fitness center was so toxic until I came here, and now, I feel like I need to post these words to help as many people as possible and, just maybe, make the owners realize that they seriously need to change things around.
I’ve always been more on the chunky side, so I need regular exercise to stay in shape and control my weight. When a friend recommended this place on her snap, I was immediately captured by it. The next day I was ready to take my first lesson with a personal trainer, I can’t remember her name, but I remember she was upbeat and nice to be around; however, she didn’t know the first thing about training, she was so rude with me, and didn’t even bother with adjusting the routines to my level.
I could feel my motivation evaporating every day, sometimes I didn’t even want to get out of bed. Thinking back, I’m sure that she didn’t mean to be mean, but she said things that really hit my morale; I remember her calling me fat, making me think that everyone in the gym was looking at me, that they felt disgusted with my presence.
For the longest time, I thought this was because everyone on that Fitness center was very rude, but now I’m starting to think that, maybe it was always her. She was the one putting those ideas in my head, making me feel like I wasn’t good enough.
This woman really impacted my life for the worst, I had to abandon the program after 4 months because I was so depressed that sometimes I barely managed to get out of bed. I used to tell myself that a perfect body was the only thing that would make me happy, even my friends noticed that I was miserable, we just never thought that my personal trainer was the cause.
As soon as I left the gym, I started having panic attacks, in the middle of the street, in my home, everywhere, and for no reason. I started seeing a psychologist who helped me get over the psychological stress I was under, and a few months later I was ready to start my life again, I remembered why I loved being healthy and going to the gym.
That’s when I decided to join a different gym, and I’ve never been happier! I just wish I could’ve realized sooner that this woman was just messing with my brain.
So, for those of you who are planning on joining Elite Fitness, keep in mind that this woman is still working there, there’s no one to keep an eye on the coaches or to watch how they act with customers, I know for my friend that some of them are good, but the owners have a pretty low standard to hire trainers, so be careful!
