Testimonials and Success Stories
Bob T. started working out at Nifty after Fifty in May of 2012 at the urging of his wife Janet who was already attending the gym. When Bob walked through the doors he weighed 232lbs, had a body fat of 36.9%, a body muscle of 26.8%, and a BMI of 33.2. Bob was thoroughly evaluated by Nifty after Fifty’s Fitness Coaches and given some tough, but attainable goals to achieve. Bob took the Fitness Coaches’ recommendations by the horns, combined them with his changed eating habits and he started seeing some serious results. Bob attended Nifty after Fifty as many days as they would let him. He did his regular individualized exercise program, participated in their Core Concepts and Circuit Training classes, and eventually became a Nifty MASTER. A Nifty MASTER must reach a goal of 50 visits in a consecutive 6-month time frame. When Bob became a Nifty MASTER he received a t-shirt, water bottle, tote bag, and key chain. Today, with Bob’s determination and the help of Nifty after Fifty, he is 64lbs lighter, has a body fat of 15.4%, a body muscle of 37.7%, and a BMI of 24.1. Bob also completed a half marathon (13.1 miles) in 2 hours and 55 minutes.
After Fifty...? Can we be Nifty...? Asking myself this question at 70+ I enjoy a solid answer of YES...!
After only a short 90 day, twice a week STRENGTH training program with Nifty after Fifty in Apple Valley, CA my success with this program was put to a sudden test. Involved in a major freeway accident, I am pleased to report my body has recovered remarkably well in ten weeks. I attribute, as does my medical team, this quick recovery to the increased STRENGTH benefit gained, the supportive staff and of course the upbeat Nifty after Fifty members contributing laughter and warm camaraderie. My family and friends now refer to me as Nifty after Seventy! Thank you...

Late in 2010 my doctor called me to his office. My blood work was all out of the normal range. He told me that my blood pressure was elevated, I was overweight, and he also diagnosed me with Type 2 Diabetes. He started me on cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes medication. He also talked to me about Nifty after Fifty and how he thought that it would help me get my health problems under control. I was given a prescription to get started on an exercise program at Nifty after Fifty.
I had not exercised in years! Sarah, the Fitness Coach, made me feel welcomed right away. She explained that she would work with me through developing a customezed program that could help me get back into exerciseing and get my blood work results closer to what the doctor wanted them to be.
My mother has been attending Lakewood’s Nifty after Fifty since last August. My mom is 87!!! She had heart valve replacement surgery on her 85th birthday and is just now doing great. Nifty after Fifty is a big part of that!! My mom is thrilled and so are we!!
She is sooooo comfortable and happy there. She loves everyone there and just feels soooo accepted. My mom has never been a really confident person in that type of setting, but from day one EVERYONE has made her feel like gold!! There is not anyone there who has not treated her wonderfully!!
She was out ill for one week and when we walked in [to Nifty], she stopped for a minute and said "I feel like I'm coming home." She missed it soooo much!!
Just know the work everyone does there is fantastic and it means soooo much to my mom and to our family.
