Members that Inspire Us

Maggie McDonald joined Bristol Total Fitness in November 2011. Last year she decided she was going to get serious about fitness and lost 25 pounds! Maggie also started to train for her first half marathon. She promised herself if she completed the half, she would spend money on personal training. Maggie completed her first half in July 2014, and began training with our personal trainer Alex Amaral in August. She ran her second half in September 2014, and shaved 25 minutes off her time! Maggie also takes Group Power and Spin classes. Congratulations Maggie! Not only are you faster and stronger, but you look fabulous as well! Keep up the great work!


Tracie MacDonald has been a member of Swansea Total Fitness since 2011, although she has been coming on a more consistent basis for the past year. Her favorite workout is Tonja’s Cardio Chisel Class. When Tracie started running about 5 years ago, her goal was to run a 5k by the time she was 40. She accomplished that goal and is now working toward running a half marathon. Presently she is on target in the 6th week of a 12-week half marathon training program. Congratulations Tracie and keep up the great work!


Karen Cox has been a member of Seekonk Total Fitness since May of 2010. Her goals have always been to lose weight and have a healthier lifestyle. She decided to change her lifestyle by becoming a participant in Walter’s Weight Loss Challenge and has lost a total of 29.2 lbs so far! What keeps her motivated is how great she feels about herself, her love of spin classes, and how healthy she has become. When Karen isn’t at the gym she is at the ice hockey rink watching her two daughters and son play! Your motivation and consistency are an inspiration to all of us and keep up all your hard work!


Edi Lauderdale has been a member of Dartmouth Total Fitness since April 2010. You can find her at the gym once a week working out with her personal trainer, Shaun. Edi says, he gives her a variation of exercises she feels is right for her. When asked if she has/had any success stories, Edi says, “She’s just 87 and in good health!!” Edi keeps healthy by staying active, reading a lot and swimming in the summer. She enjoys coming to the gym because she always feels welcome. All of us at DTF would like to congratulate Edi on being our Member of the Month.
