I have faithfully worked out at 20 Minutes to Fitness in Clayton since 2006. My
workouts mean everything to me. With my doctor’s okay, they helped me recover
from multiple joint surgeries, including reverse shoulder replacement. Keeping
my core muscles strong also helps ease back pain brought on by scoliosis. The
adrenalin rush after my workout makes me feel on top of the world!
So you can imagine how devastating it was to learn this past spring that 20
Minutes would be closing temporarily due to Covid-19. Working out on MedX
physical therapy machines under supervision is essential to my health and
well-being. I rarely miss an appointment.
After my studio closed, I lost some joint function. I also experienced debilitating
back pain that is ordinarily controlled by my workouts. These sessions make
me feel good about myself. Missing them affected both my body and my mental
health. How excited and thankful I was when 20 Minutes to Fitness reopened!
In addition to being good for my health, 20 Minutes to Fitness is an especially
GOOD PLACE TO TRAIN RIGHT NOW. The CDC recommends minimizing the
time we spend in public, and you won’t find a more efficient way to stay fit.
For one thing, a workout takes just 20 minutes! That’s it! While most people
train just once a week, my condition makes it better for me to train twice a week.
Plus, it’s all by appointment – so there are no crowded waiting rooms, workout
delays or shower facilities to worry about, either.
There are NEVER MORE THAN FIVE PEOPLE TRAINING AT A TIME, and each
one is accompanied by a personal coach – masked and at an appropriate social
distance. Not only do the coaches sanitize and set the equipment, they carefully
guide you through your training regimen so you train safely and effectively.
If you’ve been hesitant to return to your gym, I suggest you give 20 Minutes to
Fitness a try! YOUR FIRST SESSION IS FREE, and it includes a consultation
where a physical therapist, exercise physiologist or professional trainer will
review your health history and concerns. There are no contracts to sign or
membership fees to pay.
