I had a great experience with metro 42.  I was overweight for almost my entire life, until I decided that I needed to make a change.  I started working out, and making an effort to get to the gym as often as I could.  I felt a little better I’ll admit, but I wasn’t seeing significant

I loved this program and would recommend to anyone, I mean if I can do it, anyone can do it. The workouts were tough, but the encouragement from the trainers, my team, and metro staff made them doable. I struggled most with the diet piece. I have had eating issues my whole life, sometimes too

Nadya wanted to get fit for her wedding. Watch her inspiring testimonial!


First, thank you and all the trainers for the program. By far, the best integrated program I’ve ever done from beginning to end and my personal results are showing it. I’ve done a few others before that emphasized the workout side, but only mentioned the nutrition side, and obviously both are

Thank you for the Metro42 experience. This program has offered me a life and health changing experience, as well as affording me an opportunity to meet some fantastic people and trainers who truly enjoy their work. In addition, I also felt my work and personal life elevate to another level. I

I met Randy when he emailed my company to congratulate us on being named one of CNY Best Companies to Work For. Metro Fitness was also awarded this honor previously. Randy explained in his email the Metro 42 Challenge. I was intrigued. As a member of our Wellness Committee I am

What a program it has proved to be for me personally along with my early morning partners that kicked butt and spilled a lot of sweat on early mornings, all while having fun doing it. The personal attention, the in the moment one-on-one, the total encouragement from all the Metro team made it a

27 pounds later and still going strong. Thank you Randy, Metro Fitness, and a long list of people to acknowledge, including my wife who is a saint! The trainers were amazing…Jade, Ashley, Patrick, Tony, Mark, Lynn Kathleen and Amy… Metro 42 rocked! It was a great system of nutrition focus

Thank You Randy & and the entire Metro Fitness Staff! I joined the Metro 42 program for a couple reasons.  Firstly, I desperately needed to find the passion and the motivation I used to have to work out, and to stop delaying cleaning up my diet. This was exactly the jump start that I

I had been an exercise enthusiast, with classes and/or workouts 5-6 times a week. Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer. With that whole ordeal now behind me, the Metro 42 program was my first attempt at getting back into some sort of exercise routine. All of the trainers have been wonderful,

Metro 42 has been transformational for me. I have had the most positive experience. The nutritional plan and guidance from Patrick has forever changed my ability to eat healthy and manage my weight. The expertise and skilled instruction from the trainers have supported me  in dramatically

Initially I was reluctant to sign up for the Metro 42 challenge. I was worried I was not in good enough shape to be able to fully participate. However, I could not have been more wrong and am glad I did not let this stop me from signing up. The group members were of all ages and physical

I had been out of shape and overweight for longer than I'd like to (or should) admit. I was looking for a program that focused on both exercise and nutrition, something with lasting results. Having tried other programs in the past, completing the programs and losing weight had never been the

I joined Metro Fitness in April 2012 specifically to participate in their “Biggest Loser” contest. I had been working on a weight loss/fitness program but had seemed to reach a plateau and was hoping to get the results that I couldn’t seem to achieve on my own. As a result of completing the Biggest

I can't thank Randy and the team enough for inspiring me and supporting me, and our entire Metro42 team, over the past 7 weeks. I came in at 50 yrs. old, 275lbs feeling like crap. I had sleep apnea, failing knees, high blood pressure and borderline diabetic blood sugar. What a difference a

Since turning 50, I've noticed a dramatic change in my body. My metabolism completely tanked. The hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain and constant fatigue were too much. I had to do something! I've been athletic my whole life, so seeing my body change so drastically was very frustrating and

For the last 30 years I've had a personal trainer to keep me strong. I was a speed skater for 12 years, and then switched to rowing for the next 12 years, until an injury sidelined me for a year. For the last 5 years I've been bored with my training and trainer. Although he is a great guy, it was

I signed up for a second 42 program because I enjoyed the first one, and felt that I was in a groove that needed to continue. I'm thrilled that I did this as I have lost more weight, feel very fit, and have gained more self-confidence about how I look. I would absolutely refer my friends and

I would like to personally thank the Metro42 team for helping me to achieve my weight loss goal of 10% in the recent Metro42 fitness challenge. The 5:30 PM high intensity interval training sessions with Ashlea, Cameron and Tony were certainly challenging, but the spirit and camaraderie shared by

I signed up for the Metro 42 challenge because I needed help reaching my weight loss goals. I have gained and lost the same 10-12 pounds for several years and I wanted to loose that 10 pounds and have the motivation to finally surpass that weight loss number. To date, I have accomplished that. I am

This was a milestone year for me…I turned 50. And thanks to Metro Fitness and their awesome staff, facility and classes, I feel and look better than I did when I was 30 (on the left, the before pic, twenty years ago, puffy face courtesy of too many mashed potatoes, bad hair and bad tie just a

Ten years ago I joined a gym for the first time at the age of forty. I stumbled about, didn't really know what I was doing, but figured out a basic cardio / weight training routine based on what I had read in magazines. I lost about 20 lbs, was still overweight, but thought that was the best I

I have always struggled with my weight. I was always doing every new diet that came along only to see the pounds come back on. Exercise was never something I did often because I found gyms to be intimidating and generally felt self-conscious in that type of environment. My son knew I wanted to lose

To Randy and the Metro 42 team, all I can say is thank you for this great program and helping me get back to the real me. I completed my first Metro 42 Challenge and lost 22 pounds and felt amazing. I enjoyed working out with a group, liked the variety of the workouts, and really liked that


I really enjoyed the Metro42 program. I needed a way to get motivated to get back into the gym, being part of a team made me more accountable, and got me in the gym regularly again. I really liked the circuit workouts, time seemed to fly by, and I liked seeing how many calories I burned with the

I was intrigued by the success that many others had experienced with Metro42 program and began inquiring about it earlier this year after I was unsuccessful with yet another New Years weight loss resolution. Looking back now - deciding to commit to the program was a tougher decision it should have

I've been overweight all my life and my sister is getting married this summer. I decided to use this as motivation to lose some weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle (plus I didn't want to be the fat bridesmaid!). The Metro 42 program was such an amazing help! The trainers were supportive and

Another great metro42 story here. Meet Metro member Rich Neal. Here is Rich skiing this past April out west. Rich did 2 metro42's, bringing him from 262 down to 217! Rich was starting to build up a big list of medications that had unpleasant side effects and he decided enough was enough!Rich took

Robin's Story:I signed up for the Metro 42 challenge because I've spent most of this year taking care of other people and wasn't paying enough attention to me. I'd gained some weight, wasn't exercising and just didn't feel good about myself. Though it seemed kind of crazy to do this in November and

Getting fit for my wedding!After graduating college, the weight started creeping up. There was always an excuse – too busy to go to the gym, too expensive to eat healthy, and of course, there is always a “reason” eat out. Looking back, it is silly that as unhappy as I was about the weight I had

Today was the completion of our 42DC at Metro Fitness. As we took our final measurements, 'after' photos and readied ourselves for our celebration, I could hardly believe the changes from the 'before' photos, weights and measurements (of my entire group). We worked together daily, encouraged each

When I came to Metro Fitness I knew exactly what I was looking for. I knew what I was capable of physically and that I didn't have the best eating habits. I had been on a "get healthy" life track since September of 2009. One year after I got married, and after a year of trying to get pregnant, I

Two events occurred recently that made me look for some outside help with nutrition and exercise. The first was my doctor telling me I had until October to bring my "not too high but increasing" cholesterol number down or she would prescribe drugs to do the job. The second was a photo posted by a


Every woman dreams of looking perfect on her wedding day and I was no different. I started at Metro Fitness 8 months before the big day convinced that I could whip myself into shape all by myself. I started noticing all of the personal training going on and everybody's results, but still thought I

I signed up for the Metro42 Challenge because I have not been able to lose the 10 pounds that kept creeping up on me. I was skeptical because I already had a “clean” diet and I was already in good shape, working out 6 days a week, with kickboxing, Pilates and yoga. I have belonged to many gyms and


The decision to make healthy changes concerning diet and exercise was a no brainer, but the process appeared overwhelming. After the holidays, I committed to a 6 week program at Metro Fitness. After the initial meeting with Randy, I became confident not only in the program, but also in myself.
