When you think about working out, “incredible experience” may not be the words that come to mind. Nevertheless, that’s how Molly Perry describes working out at U-Fit, one of Greenwood’s newest fitness facilities. “They’ve gotten me to do things I’ve never been able to do before,” said Perry. “I’ve tried to lose weight after two kids. It’s honestly been a struggle all my life.”
Perry has been working out with U-Fit since December 1, 2014, and so far, she’s lost 23 pounds and 20 inches. “They have gotten me to do things I’ve never thought I could in a very short amount of time.”
Co-owner Michael Budensiek takes great pride in inspiring others to better themselves and to make a lifestyle change through motivation, education and leadership. He’s been a personal trainer for nine years and has four additional trainers on staff at U-Fit.
“As a personal training company, we teach everything that has to do with living a healthy lifestyle,” said Budensiek. “Not just functional exercise and cardio and stretching, but also the big components which are how are you living your lifestyle and how are you eating. Nutrition coaching is by far one of the things that sets us apart. We customize everybody’s nutritional plan down to the way they live.”
The U-Fit Story
U-Fit is a locally based and owned personal training service that began with 45 clients when it opened 18 months ago. Now, U-Fit boasts more than 100 clients and plans a move from its 2,800 square foot facility to a 6,000 square foot facility 18 months from now. Their success comes from the way the trainers help clients approach their fitness. Budensiek says it’s about meeting a goal and making a lifestyle change, a commitment that requires hard work.
Perry agrees that it’s a lot of hard work, but says the U-Fit trainers make the one-hour workout sessions three times a week fun. “I love coming,” said Perry. “I look forward to it. It’s the best feeling when I leave here. I feel like my butt’s been kicked but in such a good way. I have so much energy. I feel like I can climb a mountain. I’m not worn out. I feel like I can do anything that they put in front of me.”
The U-Fit Method
U-Fit uses a method called “Functional Fitness,” which burns calories through cardio exercise while increasing muscle tone and definition. They expect clients to commit to at least 90 days, but offer a 100 percent money back guarantee. Most clients choose a 12-18 month regimen, during which U-Fit trainers provide one-on-one coaching and education.
“We sit down with them to get to know them,” said Budensiek. “We evaluate their goals. We just talk to them to get to know them. We want to know what experiences they’ve had, positive or negative. Knowing what they want, we can tell them what’s possible.”
“I can wear my wedding rings again,” said Perry. “It’s neat to see the support system that I have here and at home, the confidence in what I’m able to do.”
