Member Success Stories: Karen Beiser


I joined FITWORKS late last year. Mid-February I was shocked to discover I needed open heart surgery. I felt my first chest pain on a treadmill. Later my friends claimed that working out helped save my life because as I was getting into shape, I was more conscious of my body’s signals. 

After three months of recovery, I was eager to get back to training, yet felt tentative after all I’d been through.

I got a trainer and he was great. He alternated upper and lower body work after reviewing any balance issues. Jeremy, my trainer, is knowledgeable, a great listener and laughs at my jokes. He helped me feel comfortable getting back into a workout routine.
I couldn’t believe that I lost 20 pounds since I began at FITWORKS White Oak. Training regularly with Jeremy made it seem almost effortless.
