We’re honored to be helping people in the Holland community change their lives through implementing healthy lifestyles.
“During the challenge I’ve lost over 18 lbs (25+ since January), I feel like being fit and healthy is something I can continue to do as a lifestyle change and won’t go back to my unhealthy ways.”
“The workbook really helped me stay on target with planning meals and staying focused on my weekly goals! …I find myself eating healthier now and it’s great to have more energy throughout the day!”
“I was able to lose 5 lbs and get past a hurdle that’s been difficult physically post baby. I experienced some relief to my back due to lifting and really loved being a part of Valeo. The trainers are all amazing and so invested. It really does feel like a family!”
“The EMAC challenge affirmed some existing patterns around exercise and food and added some new ones, particularly around rest and stressing less. The combination of the core four was what made it all work for me!”
“I think for me the stress less part was most impacting. I added back in playing the piano/reading as my stress less activities. It’s something I have done since I was little but had lost touch with over the last several years.”
“Huge success! Blood sugar under diabetes levels, lost body stiffness and lost weight. Better overall mood. No digestive issues at all.”
“I lost 12 pounds and 2+ inches. I feel better both physically and mentally.”
Our regular membership has some wonderful things to say, too!
There is a feeling of my ‘fitness family’ when I walk into Valeo. I love the encouragement, the challenges, the laughs, the conversation. It is a welcoming environment. I need you, my body needs you, my well-being needs you! – Deb
I had no idea how quickly I was going to feel a difference – I feel so much stronger. I feel like my range of mobility is shifting and stretching, and for the first time I feel like I am really sticking to something I’ve wanted to do for a long time – and having other people next to you is the best type of accountability. – Cara
Signing up with Valeo has been a game changer for me. I appreciate the personal coaching I get and a tailored workout schedule that pushes me beyond what I thought I could do.
It’s a great place to train, and Mike and Jessica have spent serious effort creating a supportive, engaged community. Five stars and high fives all around. – Chris
I give Valeo the highest rating. I don’t know where to begin in my assessment of this place / program. Being one of the oldest members I appreciate the positive vibes and friendliness of everyone there. I wanted strength and balance training to prevent falling and injuries in old age. They have me on an incredible program and the coaches never tire of explaining the correct procedure / posture. The program changes in a well considered process to enhance strength and flexibility. Love, love, love it. – Rosemary
I could go on and on about the positive impact Valeo has had on my physically and emotionally. When I walked in for my first class, I was scared of being judged, nervous of what my abilities would be, embarrassed for where I was at physically. I just wanted to get thru that first class without crying and get the heck out of there. What I found was support, laughter, encouragement, a rekindled love of fitness, feeling good, wanting to take care of myself. The trainers are top-notch. Their leadership is incomparable. Valeo is just amazing. – Hope
“Dieting” no longer dominates my life and yet my clothes fit better… I enjoy my body much more now because it serves me so much better. I am very thankful to Valeo for how it has radically and sustainably changed my entire concept of health and fitness. – Rachael
Before I started with Valeo, I was in pretty pathetic shape. My vitals had been climbing somewhat, particularly my cholesterol, and of course my weight was stuck WAY too high. But one specific problem I had at the time was my knees. One in particularly was getting so bad, that I was starting to think that I might not be able to stay in my 2-story house. Stairs, particularly in the mornings and evenings, were just getting to be too much. I even wore out the elbow in my bathrobe leaning on the wall on my way down in the mornings.
Now, what can I say? I’m no longer leaning on the wall, and in fact, don’t walk up the stairs, I RUN up them! I run up the double-flight at work and I’m not the least bit winded. The things I can accomplish now just amaze me, considering where I was a year and half ago.
Oh, and my vitals? Last check, my cholesterol was 151. I’ll take that! Any my blood pressure, which was just starting to get a little high, is in beautifully healthy ranges. – Laurie
As a former professional athlete, I always had exposure to the latest and greatest fitness techniques and programs, but the many years of competitive sports have taken its toll on me. Valeo designed a specific program to target the areas of concern and it wasn’t long before I became a believer. Their unique program which focused on specific core movements as well as strength training proved to be the answer I had been searching for. As a result, I can know go about my daily activities, including sports, pain free. It’s been 20 years since I have felt this fit and in shape…I recommend them to everyone I know! – Dan
I can’t say enough positive things about my time at Valeo. The atmosphere of encouragement, positivity, and community is unique, and I find myself leaving each time strong, happy, and proud of the achievements they foster in me…I would recommend Valeo without reservation. For anyone looking for something more out of a workout than what your typical big box month-to-month gym membership can offer, Valeo has what you’re looking for. – Ryan
I can’t say enough about the gym and the staff. They work my program to fit my life (I was able to workout my entire pregnancy last year because of the care they took on my program). I would recommend Valeo for anyone new to or already into a fitness program. They will work with you from the right starting point in your fitness journey. – Erin
One of my favorite things about Valeo is the camaraderie felt every time I walk into the gym. Either at a Semi-Private session or at a MetCon class (a mixture of grunts, sweat, and laughter, surprisingly a lot of laughter), the place is filled with encouragement and hard work. Trainers and fellow members are invested in creating a welcoming, safe, and enjoyable workout experience. Valeo also addresses other factors that affect your well-being: sleep, water consumption, stress, and nutrition. Thanks to the support and personalized approach, I have gained strength, I stand taller, and I flex my arms probably a little bit more than necessary. The coaches have challenged me, held me accountable, and celebrated my progress through each session. This is a wonderful gym where you will find a dedicated team concerned for your overall wellness. – Sara
