"As a middle-aged woman who had not been taking very good care of myself over the last 10+ years, I was dealing with a lot of health issues. I had gained so much weight that I was considered morbidly obese, and I had received a total hip replacement & 2 total knee replacements - all before I had turned 50! I was in constant pain & limited as to what I could do. I avoided stairs as much as possible, and couldn't enjoy family bike rides & other outdoor activities. My whole life was affected negatively by my debilitating health. After losing a significant amount of weight, I began training with Ryan. Honestly, I was so scared of even going to that first session! I was worried about embarrassing myself,  and that a trainer wouldn't understand the limitations I had because of my joint replacements. During my first session, I expressed those concerns to Ryan & he was awesome at coming up with some alternatives to help me get through the session. I was so excited & relieved that the experience had been positive! I began to train weekly, and eventually twice per week. Ryan has helped me to become stronger both physically & mentally, and I can do things now that I really shouldn't be able to do! I was told that I wouldn't be able to kneel/crawl ever again, but I can! This past summer, I was able to enjoy & keep up with my family on a 22 mile bike ride along the beach in MA. That was monumental for me! It was also the first camping trip we'd taken in a few years that I wasn't in constant pain, and actually had energy! Who knows what next summer will bring! I highly recommend Ryan Sensenig at Pinnacle Strength & Fitness, no matter what level of fitness you're at currently!"

"I was training at Pinnacle for over a year or so and started to get really interested in power lifting and working to my full potential. I was doing everything I could and was making some progress, but I wanted more! I talked to Ryan about working on a training program to optimize my routine and improve my main three lifts; squat, bench, and deadlift. He created a workout based off my needs and after 14 weeks I improved my squat by 20 pounds, my bench press by 15 pounds, and my deadlift by 35 pounds!!! Very happy with the results of the routine, and I love the equipment! You can't find the quality needed to make real progress at most commercial gyms. I love it here!"

"Without a doubt the best gym I've been to. Has everything you need, is open whenever you need it to be, and the owners are there to help you out every step of the way. Active duty military, and every day I'm home I make sure to spend my time at Pinnacle Strength and Fitness to improve my self mentally and physically." (Online review)

"Arthritis and chronic lower back pain have derailed all of my attempts to exercise regularly for over a decade.  Even with beginner level Pilates and yoga classes, I would quit in pain after a few weeks. Working with Ryan as a personal trainer has changed that!  He coaches me in the correct procedure and posture for each functional mobility exercise set.  When a routine uncovers a weak or inflamed area, Ryan has me step back to do precursor exercises to strengthen the supporting muscles or he substitutes alternate exercises that will work the targeted muscles, but pain-free. I’m finishing my 10th month and have recovered a level of strength and mobility that I thought were gone for good!"

"About a year ago I decided that I wanted to make the right steps towards living a healthier lifestyle. I got in contact with Ryan and began training with him with the main goal of losing weight. He was always encouraging and pushed me to give it my all while at the gym. That encouragement led me to take the leap and try my hand at powerlifting. We have worked on learning proper techniques and body mechanics to ensure my safety while handling heavier weight. Ryan is very knowledgeable about powerlifting and is always coming up with new routines to make sure that I am continuing to build strength in all the muscle groups needed to succeed. I now train with Ryan three times a week and I am glad that I have found something that makes me excited to see the strength I’m gaining, instead of criticizing myself for what the scale says! I am very proud of the strength I have gained physically and mentally, and a large part of that is due to Ryan! I would highly recommend Ryan as a trainer whether you are looking to begin, maintain or further your health journey!"

"I can't say enough good things about this place, I haven't been this excited about a gym since I was in my 20's and working out at RA's Fitness. I feel like I found my own little slice of heaven to unwind. Love the atmosphere and overall is a great feeling place, plus I love the dogs that are there too."
