Testimonials

Part of my family

I have been a member for 4+ years, and the gym is a place that I look forward to going to everyday and the people have become part of my family!  Everyone including the staff, teachers, and members are all very welcoming and friendly and no one ever judges you and you know that you are included in a great team, where we are all on the same mission to making a healthier lifestyle change.

Granite Falls staff has always been so wonderful and everyone knows you by name and makes you feel at home.  With Wake Forest being such a melting pot of people from different areas, everyone is welcome here.  You don’t have to worry about wearing makeup, or being the fittest of prettiest in the room, everyone is made to feel equal as soon as they walk in the door.

The KidZone staff is one of the best! When I had my second child, Kinley, I was so excited for her to become 6 weeks old, so that I could start using the gym again, and I was there the day she turned 6 weeks with open and welcoming arms.

Thank you for being one of the best and most positive parts of my life!

Refuge

My family and I have very much enjoyed Granite Falls. The outdoor pool was our refuge on the weekends this past summer and the staff is always accommodating!! I am also a fan of their indoor pool for my weekly swim and have enjoyed their group fitness classes as well. I think the amenities they have are unlike any around our area and it’s 5 minutes from home.

Camaraderie

Before I joined Granite Falls, I did not enjoy working out at all!  I participated in The Biggest Chooser Challenge and group personal training and found that I enjoyed the camaraderie of my teammates.  They truly inspired and motivated me.  I competed in my first 8k and sprint triathlon and now exercise is a part of my daily routine.  If I can do it, anyone can.

Great Childcare

With three children it can be difficult to get to the gym. Luckily, Granite Falls has great childcare and I always feel comfortable dropping the kids off while I take a class or squeeze in a workout of the fitness floor. My children look forward to seeing their friends and favorite “teachers” in the KidZone. Taking the kids to the gym helps set a good example while keeping me healthy and fit.

Consistency

I have never exercised consistently. Months on…months or years off. However, I come here consistently, not only because I desire good health, but because this is such a nice facility.

Happier and Healthier

I have the staff and facility at Granite Falls to thank for helping me in my weight loss journey. Until this year, I had never set foot in a gym or even engaged in any form of regular exercise. I started a weight loss plan in January and in March I began going to Granite Falls and walking the treadmill for thirty minutes a day, three days a week.

The atmosphere at Granite Falls is excellent. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. There is always someone available to answer questions and they are always patient, even on busy days.

Thanks to the positive experiences I have had from day one, I have worked my way up to walking an hour a day at least four days a week. I have lost a significant amount of weight which has been a blessing to my joints and overall sense of well-being.

Granite Falls has played a huge part in helping me become healthier. I look forward to being a member for many more years!
