WHAT CLIENTS SAY

I started inshape fitness when David started about four years ago. I have always been very active in sports and love working out. I came back home from college and I found it difficult to get motivated to get any kind of workout schedule going. I started David¿s class and loved it and four years later I am still in love with the program. What other program can you stick with that long without complacency setting in?? I have found the only one, IN SHAPE FITTNESS! Throughout my journey with David, I have gotten married and was in the best shape of my life, got pregnant and was able to continue the program through the whole pregnancy, and now I am 2mos post baby and working on toning back up. David's program fits YOU at your individual fitness level and encourages you to work hard while having fun.
