805 GET FIT UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH AND WE CAN HELP!

                805 Get Fit was founded by Certified Personal Trainers Doug and Michelle Waldman.   They came to the fitness industry later in life than most.  Their migration to the fitness industry from the real estate and banking industry started when Michelle saw herself in a family photo and realized that she had let her weight jump by over 30 pounds. She had been taking care of the family business, their three sons, the house and Doug… the one thing that she had forgotten to take care of was her own health.  She decided right then and there to take her life back.  She dropped the thirty plus pounds the hard way- cardio work twice a day and journaling what she ate every day.  Doug followed suit and started watching what he ate and exercising (karate) on a regular basis.

In 2009, Michelle and Doug decided that the mortgage industry had lost its allure; they started looking for other industries where they could help people.  They realized that nearly 70% of Americans were either overweight or obese and that helping other middle aged and older Americans to lose weight and get back in shape would be rewarding and challenging.   “This career has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done,” Says Certified Personal Trainer Michelle Waldman (40 years old), “I have clients taking control of their lives and dropping lots of weight.  They feel better, are stronger, more flexible and have more energy than they have had in decades.  There is so much false and misleading information in the media, it is hard to figure out what is the right way to lose the weight and get in shape.  Our personal experience allows us to really understand what our clients are going through and the frustration that comes with Yo-Yo dieting and all those articles that make it sound like losing weight is the easiest thing in the world.”  Doug adds,” We decided to offer in home training because studies show that 80% of American’s don’t want to go to a gym.  We figured that if we go to a client’s house then the chances of them staying on track is much higher and I am happy to report that this has indeed been the case.  We focus on functional training so we don’t need machines to work on movement patterns that our clients see in real life.  This makes it very easy for our clients to get started.  We make this a very inviting, very supportive experience.”  I WANT TO TALK TO MICHELLE OR DOUG ABOUT A PROGRAM



*Thank you for all your help with training. I can’t believe that in 3 short months, I lost 8 pounds and several inches all over my body! My favorite thing is how strong my core is. I can’t believe how great that feels and I notice a real difference when I do normal daily tasks and when I run. I really needed someone to push me with my workouts so I could get the results I wanted and you exceeded my expectations. You’re workouts were amazing and I appreciated the fact that they didn’t require much equipment and were so versatile that I didn’t get bored! You also have a natural way of motivating that helped me push myself in our workouts. Your assistance with my nutrition was extremely helpful. I didn’t think I needed too much help in this area before we started working together but soon found out how wrong I was about that. I am eating better than I ever have and feel amazing. I truly appreciate all your help with getting me back in shape!

*I have been training in my home with Michelle since September 2011. I am getting ready for my wedding. I want to look and feel my best for that special day, especially in pictures, which are going to be on my wall forever. Although I have never had a weight challenge, I really want to get toned. With Michelle’s help, I have really seen exciting changes in my body. I am leaner, stronger and I can see much more definition. I feel and look so much better than before. Thanks Michelle.

*New Years Day 2012 I made the decision to get myself in shape. I had let myself go, eating what I wanted whenever I wanted and packing on 30+ pounds over the years. I decided that if I was going to do this, that I needed some professional help and chose the staff at 805GetFit to help me out by providing personal training. Boy did they!! In eight short weeks I had dropped twenty-six pounds. I can’t believe that I went from a size 36 pant to a size 32. Incredible! The only bad news… I had to buy all new pants. I look and feel 10 years younger and can’t thank Doug and Michelle enough.
