"I joined Accelerated Fitness six months ago. I wish I had joined 6 years ago! I don’t really love exercising, but I love the results. Julienne has made exercise not only fun, but the results have far surpassed my expectations. I can’t believe what a difference I’ve seen in my body in just six months. I’m actually looking forward to wearing Summer clothes and dare I say my bathing suit.
Craig and Julienne really know how to push you to achieve even more than you think you can. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next six months will do for my body and overall fitness level!"
Congratulations to Lynn!!
"I have been training with Doug and Jeff for over a year now and always look forward to my work-outs. They keep it interesting, fun and challenging! About seven years now, I've been working out and I generally feel I need to switch gyms and/or classes to keep myself interested and motivated. I would never go to the gym or class by myself at other facilities, but I love working out at Accelerated Fitness and I know my trainer will be there to support and encourage me. I feel stronger than I ever been and want to continue to do this for the rest of my life. Thank you so much to Doug and Jeff!"
Congratulations to Sarat!!
"I have been trying to lose my body fat from 2004 and joined different gyms with personal trainers, but I didn't see the results as I expected. It took only 5 months to see my body transformation that I wanted and also got a six-pack, which I never thought I would have in my life. Thanks to Juliene! Juliene studies my performance and then she will increase or decrease the weights. No matter how much the weights are and what exercises I do, I always see stars and planets, especially that sled push at the end of the workout!! It is a different experience and my mind acts like a time machine taking me to the past in the school days! I like it and my trainer mentally controls me. This is the best personal training I ever received. Sometimes I ask myself, am I lifting this weight?!
In my opinion, here at Accelerated Fitness anyone can achieve their goal as long as Juliene and Craig understand exactly what you want. Also you will be surprised how capable you are and I believe you will definitely quote me.”
Congratulations to Brian Davis!
"From the time I was young I always felt athletic. I could compete at an “acceptable” level at many sports, both organized and individual, and did so constantly. Because of this I always considered myself in pretty good condition. In time it became increasingly apparent that activity and athletics were not going to sustain my good condition. Before I came to Accelerated, I didn’t know the vast difference between conditioning and fitness. Nor did I understand how important and impactful fitness is to all aspects of my life. Since training with Jeff and Doug, I have been inspired to work harder, consistently, and enjoy workouts more. They are specifically tailored for my short-term benefit and extended longevity. Not only do I feel better on all levels, I expect to feel better for a long time to come. Thank you, thank you, thank you Accelerated Fitness!"
Congratulations to Kellie McCabe!!
"I have been working out @ Accelerated Fitness since July 2015 with Craig and Juliene and my experience has been nothing but GREAT! Most of my training is done with Juliene who has a written out a plan for me that is always changing to keep me on my toes! Far better than what I could do on my own. She definitely challenges me! Sometimes I doubt myself, but she is aware of it and assures me that I can do it, which just motivates me to always try harder. I am very happy I found this gym and the trainers that work with me. Its definitely a FUN place to be. I HIGHLY recommend Accelerated Fitness for anyone who wants results regardless of their fitness level. You will achieve your goal here!"-Kelli M.
Congratulations to John Egazarian!
"My experience at Accelerated Fitness has been very positive. Jeff has done a tremendous job of pushing me without ever making me feel discouraged. He understands my goals and I have complete confidence in his ability to help me reach them. My overall fitness has improved greatly over the last 5 months and I have every intention of continuing the program into the new year."
Congratulations to Sean Banning!!
"My name is Sean Banning and I started training with Craig 8 months ago. My typical workout schedule is four days a week. Three days are strength training and one day of HIIT. Craig changes the workouts every four weeks to keep things interesting. I find the exercises we do to be very challenging and personally rewarding. I never imagined I could achieve the level of fitness that I now have. I lost 30 pounds and nearly half my body fat in the 8 months. Craig is detail oriented, extremely knowledgeable and puts a tremendous amount of effort into designing workouts that fit my goals and abilities. Accelerated Fitness has changed my life and I look forward to the positive changes that are still to come."

"Jeff's never-ending attention to detail and enthusiasm makes me excited to come in every day. It's astonishing. He has helped me accomplish more in the last few months than any orthopedist, cortisone shots, physical therapy, etc. could do. I appreciate him and the entire Accelerated Fitness team immensely, and only hope more people don't find out about it, so I'm selfishly able to schedule time with Jeff!"
Congratulations to Mike Domaingue!!
"My name is Mike Domaingue and I have been training with Juliene for about 18 months. Prior to joining Accelerated Fitness I had tried, unsuccessfully, to get in shape using a number of different approaches. Nothing was working for me and my excuses were piling up. With three young children I was growing increasingly aware of my desire to get healthy and live a long enough life to watch them grow. Coincidentally, around the time I started feeling this way, a close friend of mine had been training with Juliene and had experienced substantial weight loss, and was looking as fit as ever. He introduced me to Juliene and I was finally on the right track.
At first I found the workouts incredibly challenging, especially mentally. I had gone nearly 15 years without working out consistently and Juliene was pushing me to levels I never thought possible. In time I grew more cognizant of my ability to ‘survive’ the workout and I began embracing them. Now, I can’t wait to get to the gym and start my day. I have more energy than ever before and I find that I am more alert throughout the day. I am driven by the positive changes I am seeing. Lifestyle changes I once dreaded are now something I crave in order to complete the transformation of my health and fitness.
The days of setting and forgetting are over for me. Now, when I set a goal, I achieve it, there is no room for excuses this way. I have Accelerated Fitness and Juliene to thank for it!"
Congratulations to Lou Lanza!!
"I am a client of Accelerated Fitness, and this has been an excellent experience. I came for general conditioning. The program has been tailored to my individual needs and has been very effective. My trainer, Jeff Loveland, is doing a marvelous job. The facility is modern and well organized. I am a happy camper."

"In December I decided I needed a change to my workouts. I went looking for a Jullian Micheals, what I found was a Juliene Anderson! She is exactly what I was looking for. She motivates me to accomplish workouts that sometimes I don't think I can handle. In April I was told by my physician that I needed to lose 20 pounds. At my next session with Juliene I told her what my doctor had said to me about losing weight. I asked her for some advice on how I could achieve this weight lose goal. We talked about foods that I needed to eliminate from my diet and foods that I could eat. She also told me I needed to increase my workout schedule. After 6 weeks of eating foods that were much healthier for my body and working out more often I had lost 10 pounds."

"I was recommended by my doctor to work with a trainer to strengthen my back and core muscles after being diagnosed with degenerative disk disease. I was very hesitant since I hurt my back weight training in a fitness class and had just come off several months of physical therapy. Jeff has made all my fears and hesitations of weight training disappear! He listens to me, modifies exercises as needed, and regularly checks in with me about my back. He has taught me so much about proper form and is a blast to work with. The added benefit is that not only is my back better but I am seeing my entire body develop more muscle tone."

"My name is Chris Hewitt and I have been training with Craig at accelerated fitness in Tolland for about a year now. When I first started I had a very sedentary lifestyle and I would get winded easily during everyday activities . A year later and I have progress further than I every thought I would. I am stronger than I have ever been and I now have more energy. With Craig's expertise and motivation I have been able to achieve gains that I never could have on my own."

"I've been "playing" @ Doug's facility for some time now (6 years if you prefer specifics), with a variety of trainers. All are very knowledgeable, concerned, and easy to work with. I currently work with Jeff Loveland. I also enjoy Accelerated Fitness because of the fair pricing and convenient scheduling! ..I'm healthier and feel better at almost 60 than I was at 40."
Karen is a great example of health and wellness. She works out consistently and it shows. Her commitment to a balanced fit life is impressive. She's a role model and a joy to have in our facility. Stay forever young Karen!
Congratulations to Jim!!
Member of the Month
My name is Jim Saya and I am a "forty-something" attorney. I've been working with Craig for about 2 years. When I first came to Craig, my lifestyle was really catching up to me. I was out of shape, sore, and had frequent back stiffness. When I first started training, I had a lot of problems getting through the workouts and keeping proper form.
Craig worked hard with me to correct my form and keep me working. His attention to detail and personalized training have helped me tremendously. I am much stronger and more flexible now and feel younger than I have in years. My energy levels are higher and my lifestyle has changed for the better since I started training with Craig.
A number of colleagues and clients have remarked that I look like a "new person." Every once in a while, I run into someone I haven't seen in a few years and it makes me smile to see their jaws drop. The only downside to the training I have done is all the new clothes I have had to buy—my old clothes no longer fit!
I owe these accomplishments to Accelerated Fitness and to Craig in particular. I plan to continue my training and I expect to continue to see results. My training has helped me develop a better and more pro-active approach towards my health.
Congratulations to Heather!!

Congratulations to Jimmy Titus!!
Member of the Month
My name is Jimmy Titus, and I am a 16 year old junior at East Catholic High School. I've been working with Craig consistently since my freshman year in high school. He has helped me tremendously in making the jump from a good baseball player to an elite one. When I first started my training, my 60 yard dash time was 7.5 seconds. I did not have good running form at all and I was too slow and not quick enough to play shortstop at the next level. However, after working with Craig in the fall and winter for two years, my 60 yard dash went down to 6.7 seconds, which is much faster and closer to where I need to be. By the time I finish my high school career, I am hoping to get to the 6.4-6.5 second range, and I know Craig can help me accomplish that.
My time at Accelerated has also gotten me much stronger, allowing me to hit the ball harder and throw the ball faster. This past year I hit 9 home runs in games, and I know it will only increase from there with all of the strength work we do. I have also gone from 76 miles per hour on my fastball before this training to 90 miles per hour now. I have to attribute these accomplishments, along with my recent commitment to Bryant University, to the work I put in with Craig at Accelerated for the past two years. I am still continuing my training this year and I will most certainly be doing it next year.
