“Going to Midtown for me is like going to Disney World for children.
You can make so many friends for life at Midtown. Just to think, soon the new Pilates area will be done for a finishing touch in 2010 :) I love Midtown and can't wait for each visit!”

"My goal was to get into better shape. (My personal trainer) pushes me, he motivates me, I really wouldn't want to be without him. Now I'm not even the same person as far as my muscles, my definition, the endurance and the aerobic capacity that I have."
"My Personal Trainer is one of the things that keeps me here. He considers my lifestyle - the sports I play and the things I'm interested in - and tailors a training program that will make my life better."
"Midtown is my club because of the people that belong. It isn't just a place to work out- it is a community. I may not be the oldest person at the club but I can always expect a friendly conversation and a new friend by attending a class or simply saying Hi."
"While I was being treated for cancer I was wearing bandanas, because there's no way you can teach cycling in a wig.
To support me, the club's City of Hope fundraiser was held as "Bandanockburn" Day. Staff were wearing bandanas club-wide. Every person in my class had a bandana on and it was great. For one thing I didn't stick out, and it meant a lot to me."

"I was in an accident in June of 2008. The club was exceptional to me. My friends from Midtown were emailing me and calling me.
I shouldn't have survived, but I did, and I attribute that to my membership here and the physical condition that I was in."
"What I like about this club is the variety of people. Nobody looks the same and nobody cares, it's about the fitness and the tennis.
I made a lot of new friends, and my whole social life changed - I didn't want to go out of the house a lot when I didn't feel good about myself."
"My moment was unexpectedly coming to the club when Midtown Chef was having a wine and appetizer tastings and sitting down with her to enjoy a special glass of wine and discuss her experiences.
She takes special care to create opportunities for intermingling while offering low-cost, unique offerings of food and wine. My wife and I appreciate her being there!"
"I have joined other clubs in the area. Midtown is the first one that makes sure you feel special every time you walk in. Truly a great place to be and be a part of! I feel like I made a really good investment in myself at Midtown, not just bought a membership."
"I've completely reprioritized my schedule so that Midtown doesn't take a second seat to anything."
