"When a co-worker & I joined a gym in January of 2001, I was 42 years old & frustrated by the inevitable muscle loss & weight gain that came to 40-somethings living a couch-potato lifestyle.  I had struggled with my weight since my teenage years & had turned yo-yo dieting into something of an art form.  The personal trainer assigned to me was Manabu Shimotsu, and my life was forever changed!  What I noticed immediately was the positive energy he exuded, his genuine care & concern for me, & his attentiveness in each session, which ensured that I was using correct form so as to maximize results and minimize injury risk.  The variety in my workouts made them fun & interesting, constantly challenged my body & yielded awesome results.  He patiently taught me to focus on body composition vs. the scale, & by Christmas I had lost 30 lbs. of body fat, gained 22 lbs. of lean tissue, & dropped 3 pant sizes.  For the first time in my life I was lean & strong, & everyone was amazed at both this & the resulting boost in my self-confidence .Last summer Manabu helped me discover my ability & passion for sprinting, & the former "fatty" is now an athlete.  My endurance, stamina, & flexibility are better than in my teens.  It's never been easy, but Manabu has always had the courage to tell me what I needed to hear.  He encourages me to expect nothing less than the best from myself & has often believed in me more than I believed in myself.  My motivation to continue is driven by my heart's desire to enhance the quality of my life & to embrace Manabu's "no regrets" philosophy in all my endeavors."

"I have attempted many weight loss techniques in the past, which only led to failures.  This program taught me the skills necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  I am confident that I can maintain these efforts for a lifetime!  Manabu has a great personality and is very supportive.  He has provided the professional support I needed.  I feel more confident, have increased my self-esteem and feel like a more positive person as a result of the program.  My friends and family have commented on the many positive changes about me!"

Our Body Transformation Analysis Session

​Before we take you through a workout, we first want to take the time to find out what you specifically need by performing your Body Transformation Analysis Session. This blue print is the very specific plans that we will use to design the program to get you to your individual goals. Every single person who works out at The Way to Wellness Center has a Blue Print designed for them.

​During your Body Transformation Analysis Session Consultation we will learn about your health history, any past injuries, your training history along with your specific goals. We will also take you through a range of motion and flexibility evaluation and the base of our blue print – The Functional Movement Screen. During The Functional Movement Screen we will have you perform basic movements and we will find out exactly where your program should start and what it should include to get you started right.

​For example, we will learn about any imbalances you may have that could eventually cause an injury. This screening is scored from a 1-21. 21 being the best you can get. You will get a score that will be incorporated into your blue print and your coach will guide you on what the next best step is for you. If you score above a 12 we are comfortable with you joining our group coaching membership right away. Our group coaching classes are written as a general program so before you join them we want to make sure you are ready for them. If you score under a 12 we would want to spend a few weeks making sure you are ready for the group coaching classes by performing a program written specifically for you to get you ready for the classes. This program will include correcting any imbalances you have and will be done in a private setting.

​We feel we have the best club in town but talk is cheap. We want you to come meet our staff, meet the other members and give us a chance to earn your business.

"I don't even know where to begin to express my gratitude to Manabu for the difference our work together is making in my life. The changes in my body strength, stamina, coordination, flexibility, balance, body reshaping and weight loss are hard to believe. I have achieved more than I ever knew could be possible let alone in this short period of time. I was experiencing balance problems, memory loss and difficulty processing information when we began working together. My deficits were even more frightening due to my background as a speech pathologist. His expertise as a trainer speaks for itself. His attention to my form, feedback about my increased performance, and  genuine enthusiasm with my progress has given auditory processing skills and an opportunity for my brain to re-organize itself. My improvement is noticeable to those around me. I believe that part of my healing can be credited to the supportive environment that Manabu and all the staff have created. I thank him from the bottom of my heart and look forward to continuing our work together."
