My journey to becoming a proud owner of a Pure Physique franchise began over eight years ago. After suffering a serious back injury, I came to Pure Physique looking to strengthen my body and improve my overall physical health and well-being. Although I had always been physically active, becoming a member of the Pure Physique family in my mid-forties resulted not only in improved fitness and conditioning, but also resulted in a lifestyle transformation. Working together with the skilled, knowledgeable and dedicated trainers at Pure Physique, I achieved and maintained fitness goals that surpassed the shape I was in when I was younger. This experience was the motivating factor in becoming a part of that team. After having the opportunity to work and learn as a trainer with those who helped me achieve my goals, I am thrilled to now be a part of the Pure Physique family as a franchise owner. I look forward to the opportunity to work with the Danbury community to help them achieve their fitness goals. I am confident our members will enjoy the same positive experience and results that Pure Physique has offered me over the years.
