Vicki B’s Success Story

I came to APT in November 2016. I had been athletic throughout my life – played various sports, and had always been physically active. About 5 years ago, I began to have issues with my right shoulder and arm. Nothing too serious but I was in a lot of pain. I knew if I didn’t […]

Steve M’s Success Story

My odyssey began in the fall of 1999 when I first learned about a novel kind of gym that would soon be opening in Old Mystic.

Laura’s Success Story

I became interested in Advantage when a friend suggested I try it for a month. I knew I was looking for a different way of working out that incorporated more weights and circuit training. I had been sort of stuck in a rut with my exercise program. I never wanted to give up, but there […]

Barry’s Success Story

Once upon a time, my workouts consisted of long-distance running on a daily basis. Then in the early 2000’s I developed disfunction in my left quad muscle, a result of an ill prescribed medicine. As a result, I was forced to walk with a cane. Advancing age (I was in my 70s) contributed to balance […]
