Tired of feeling defeated about your weight? Would you like to improve your current fitness level? Do you want to make a long-term lifestyle change, but you’re unsure how to get started? If so, U-FIT may be your perfect option. Located at 300 Commerce Parkway West Drive in Greenwood, U-FIT has differentiated itself from other fitness facilities by partnering with individuals on a personal basis.
U-FIT specializes in personal training. Anyone interested in working with U-FIT meets with a U-FIT personal trainer and undergoes a fitness evaluation. Prospective clients share their weight and fitness goals. An assessment evaluates the strength of the heart, muscles, core, balance, coordination, weight, and body fat.
“We present a customized plan to prospective clients including weight training, cardio workouts, and dietary changes,” says Co-owner Michael Budensiek. “We’re interested in coaching a lifestyle change. We’re not just focused on what our clients do while they’re here, but we get to know them—their schedule, how they eat, how much they sleep. We help them balance it all. We give them nutritional guidelines to follow and provide a workout plan for the days they aren’t in our facility. This sets us apart from other fitness facilities because all of this is provided at no extra charge.”
U-FIT clients can purchase 1-on-1 sessions with a U-FIT personal trainer at a cost starting at $25 per 30 minute session. Group sessions are available at a lower cost. U-FIT also offers kickboxing (Muay Thai) and boot camp. Workout sessions are focused on functional movement, so get ready to do lots of squats, lunges, planks and pull-ups, to name a few. “We don’t do single movement machines here. Everything we do is functional. This is best because you burn more calories, lose more body fat, and typically gain more muscle. We incorporate as many joints as possible to help you function better in your everyday life,” shares Budensiek.
Relationships are the foundation
What distinguishes U-FIT from most other workout facilities is the relationship built between trainers and clients. Because all sessions are appointment-based, clients always meet with the same trainer. This is true whether they’re working out, or doing a weekly weigh-in or a monthly reassessment. “This helps build trust. Clients respond better to their trainer’s coaching when there is a trusted relationship,” says Budensiek.
The average client works out in the facility at least twice a week and meets their fitness goals in 8-12 months. “We show what your minimum and maximum results can be based on how often you come in. Then, we help build it into your schedule and budget,” says Budensiek.
U-FIT opened at their current location, east of I-65, six months ago, primarily to meet the needs of Greenwood and Franklin Township. “Our clients range from five to seventy-five years old. We coach clients of all ages, weight and fitness levels,” adds Co-owner Paul Elmore.
“We know many people make drastic dietary changes that aren’t feasible to keep in the long run. We help clients make a realistic, healthy lifestyle change that can easily be maintained long-term once their goals are reached,” shares Budensiek.
U-FIT encourages you to give them a try. U-FIT offers a one-week (two sessions) free trial. Interested individuals should call 317-886-8133 to set an appointment. U-FIT also offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. After working with them, if you’ve followed their training and tips but still aren’t completely satisfied with the results, they’ll issue a 100% refund.
We are happy to welcome a local business committed to partnering alongside Greenwood residents who desire a healthier life.
