    Straighten ���n Strengthen Fitness Solutions LLC
    Back pain?  Hip pain?  Knee pain?  Never heard of the Egoscue Method?? (Me, either!)
    But it was a fortunate happenstance that, while overseeing my son?s physical therapy, a certified Egoscue instructor (John Eggers), noticed my attempts to reposition myself in the waiting room chair to ease my lower back pain.  He asked me about the pain and suggested I attend one of his Egoscue classes.  I had never heard of it before, but I listened as he explained how the body is a highly integrated structure with great capacity for self-healing when restored to its natural alignment and balance.  I liked the sound of this natural approach to strengthening my core and aligning my spine to alleviate life?s aches and pains ? and to prevent future pain.
    Like most people? I thought about it, felt it might be good for me?but I didn?t try it!  Every week I would take my son to therapy ? and if John were around he would gently remind me of the class day and time.  And like most people?it took ?til I just couldn?t stand the discomfort any more - to finally get off my duff and TRY it!   (I?m not sure which one of us was more surprised when I finally showed up for class!)  
    Honestly, one class did not erase all my pain, BUT?it did start to ease it and the muscle tightness.  I felt increased mobility, flexibility and I liked the feeling of strengthening my abdominal muscles.  I felt like I was finally moving in the right direction for my body.  The class wasn?t about breaking a sweat. It was about doing holds and stretches that repositioned and properly re-aligned the body.
    I also really liked the people in the class. They came from all walks of life and ages, but all had a desire to live healthier, more active, pain-free lives through positive lifestyle changes.
    As the weeks passed, my lower back pain was completely gone.  It is a process!   In the same way that yoga, Pilates, etc, improves your body over time, the Egoscue Method of holds and movement can improve one?s life quality ? and ease the pain that accompanies any form of malalignment.  Whether you ?tweaked? your back playing golf, forgot to bend at the knees while picking up that toddler, or sat too long each day at the computer? I can?t recommend John?s Egoscue classes and one-on-one therapy enough.
    It has now been 6 years of attending the Egoscue Method classes at John?s Straighten ?n Strengthen Fitness Solutions studio.  I get up each morning pain-free.  I can also tell when life intervenes and I take a break from the classes.  My body quickly reminds me of their importance to maintain a healthy, active life.  It is always a relief to return to class!
    I have also used the individual services when I have specifically hurt my back and my knee.  John was able to assess the injury site and prescribe a series of exercises, holds, stretches and apparatus to ease and rehabilitate my injuries.  John can also address even chronic, long-term pain issues through one-on-one personalized appointments.  Those shy about attending class or feel they want an individualized program to address specific needs can work with him one-on-one through a series of flexibly scheduled sessions.
    As a personal trainer and runner himself, John was also the only person to correctly assess that my ?knee? problem I experienced while running was actually a hip problem.  He assigned me warm up exercises to loosen my hip rotation ? and I never experienced the ?knee? pain again.
    S?n S Straighten and Strengthen Fitness Solutions really is an all-inclusive one-stop shop.  While the hallmark of John?s studio is his specialized Egoscue Method training ? he is equally adept at personal training and body conditioning.  And he is just the person you want by your side when body pain interferes with your personal fitness goals.
    I have taken the time to write this because John?s Egoscue Method is life changing.  The people who are fortunate enough to discover it - stay with it throughout the years because it works!  I want more people to benefit from this method and (selfishly!) I want Straighten ?n Strengthen Fitness Solutions to grow and prosper so that I can continue to use this facility to enhance and improve my life as I age.
    *You can read more about Peter Egoscue?s Method online, but frankly, there is nothing like working with a certified instructor to receive its full benefit.

    Kwon, J K Lee Tae
    After the one on one my daughter decided that while she liked the kicking during the class, she was intimidated by the expectations of behavior in and out of class.   We decided not to pursue classes.  The classes were also more than we were willing to spend at this time.

    West Suburban YMCA
    Very nice facility. Equipment was always in good working order and while it was rather busy at times I could always find a machine. I liked the large open main area with cardio and weights, however, my daughter prefers the Waukesha Y where the track, cardio room and weight room areas are separate. It is a little more expensive than the 24 hour places in strip malls but offers much more with classes, pool, and very helpful staff. I only use cardio and weight machines but still feel the Y is worth the added cost.

    Elite Sports Club-Brookfield
    Our family has belonged to Elite for almost two years. We have worked out at home or the YMCA before and joined Elite because it was more family-centric.
    Our girls (10 and 8) like swimming on the weekends and going to the e-Zone during the week. In the middle of winter, this gets them moving instead of watching TV. Our son (13) met with a personal trainer and now had a workout he can do on his own. He likes the basketball and racquetball courts. My wife likes the yoga (no added cost), water aerobics, and the fitness center. I've used the whole club, including the tennis courts.
    The staff is great, the facilities are excellent, and the members are nicer than we found at the YMCA. Elite does cost a significant amount, but all of our family uses it, so in the end it's a good VALUE.

    I would give the Outpost straight A's down the line.  If you can't find something, some one will find it for you.  I was there a couple of weeks ago, and I will absolutely continue to shop at Outpost.

    Whitcomb, Dr. John E.
    Before my first visit, I was sent a detailed health questionnaire. Dr. Whitcomb and his staff have created a very relaxed and inviting health care environment. The first appointment was an hour. Dr. Whitcomb's gentle and nurturing style laid the foundation that he and I were working as a team to improve my health. Quickly, it was clear to me that he is sincerely enthusiastic about empowering his patients through wellness, prevention education, and most importantly exploring cures and not bandages for symptoms. He encouraged my questions and answered respectfully. By the end of my appointment, we discussed various treatment options, the supporting research and created my plan. We agreed that I would begin with simple dietary changes and nutritional supplementation, while I continue walking for exercise. He made it clear that the window for healing is longer and I should think in increments of months rather than days or weeks. I left his office feeling heard, that my health concerns were validated and that we would work toward the goal of optimizing my health. I also feel confident that we will continue to tweak my plan depending on my individual results.

    Elite Sports Club-Brookfield
    I have used them for years and they are very nice. I have been using their services for about fifteen years. I like their pool and the availability. My overall experience has been very good. They are probably a little pricey in comparison with another fitness center and they probably charge double to what another fitness center charges. They are expensive. If we were not moving I would continue to use them.

    The training sessions went well, but I received a call after a year that the trainer has left the company. Subsequent follow-ups left me me with no options or trainers. The owner may know fitness, however has little business or customer service sense.

    The first time was ok. The second I was worked very hard. I am not able to stand on one foot and told her why but she just pushing me. I was to have another session in 2 days so I went there and told them I had been in constant pain and would like it cut one session a week and much more gentle.Glenn and Kathy both refused and it was then that I learned I had a contract with them which would cost me 6000.00. The copy I had was called an invoice and there were no signatures. I called him the next day and said I wasn't coming back. I'm 72 years old and just too scared to go back for fear my condition will just get worse as I'm still in pain from that last session.

    My son Reid worked for G-Form Fitness (Glen Warns) as a personal trainer from May - November 2009. The final month Glen shorted Reid $800.00 in his final paycheck. He has refused to return phone calls and will not print out the client list proving that Reid met his quota of clients.
