I joined Bally after a long rut of being overweight and blaming it on my now 2 1/2 year old child! I decided it was high time to get my butt in gear and visited Bally to see what they had to offer! They have more than affordable prices, excellent staff, and a child care center that my lights up my little boys? eyes! After working out on my own for a few weeks with a friend, we were given a free session with a personal trainer for joining and fell in love! We really ?thought? we had been working out before?. We had no idea!!! We were gratefully paired with MayDene!!!! We now have sessions with MayDene 2-3 times a week and couldn?t be more thrilled! She is so uplifting and charismatic, but still knows a stern voice to let me know I can't give up! She has really helped me discover my inner strength all over again while developing the body I never thought I could have back in such a short amount of time! Not only is MayDene great, but all the staff is as well! Always keeping us on our toes and welcoming us with a huge smile affirming that Bally is exactly where we need to be as we walk through the door!! Couldn't be more pleased and would recommend the South Academy Bally Total Fitness to anyone and everyone ... no matter your stage in fitness!!!
