Members that Inspire Us

Nancy Orlando has been a member of Bristol Total Fitness since December 2012. She began her fitness journey by getting involved in our 6 Weeks To Wellness Progam. Once the program ended, Nancy joined and has kept up with her daily exercise. She always participates in Dawn Casella's "Fitness Revival" and encourages her friends to sign up for many Bristol Total Fitness workshops. Nancy also trains one on one personal training session with Dawn, to intensify her personal workouts and increase her fitness level. Way to go Nancy, and keep up the awesome work!
Kelly Pelissier joined Swansea Total Fitness in June of 2013. Since joining she has replaced 15 lbs of fat with healthy, strong muscle. Kelly has stayed accountable to her wokouts and feels great. She could have gone to a less expensive gym but knows that she would not have stayed motivated and consistent. Kelly says "It's the people that bring me to the gym. Kevin, the staff, my friends, old neighbors, scout families, the ladies I say hi to in the locker room, they are all the perks of a gym membership that bring me back at least 3 times a week." Thank you and congratulations Kelly! 
Kelly McVerry joined Seekonk Total Fitness in July of 2013 & Melisa Tavares joined in September of 2013. They have been friends for only a year but you would never know! They push and motivate each other like lifetime friends. Both have always lived a healthy lifestyle and Kelly even participated in the Jay Cutler Classic NPC in 2011. They are in the gym 5-6 days a week along with their significant others. Outside of the gym they enjoy spending time with family and friends, jumping on the Harley Davidson, relaxing at the beach and of course some retail therapy!
Sandy Forand has been a member of Dartmouth Total Fitness since our opening, 4 years ago. Sandy started working with Personal Trainer Erin Carr a year ago. Within a year she has completed her first Father’s Day 10K, Cox Providence ½ Marathon, and this years New Bedford ½ Marathon. She attributes her success to training with Erin. She noted that getting comfortable in the routine helps tremendously. “It builds confidence. You know that you are doing it right. It also helps to have a little push.” Thank you, Sandy, we are excited to see what you take on next!
