Sue and Bruce Metzger, Members Since 2013
"Sue and I joined Global because there was ample room and great equipment to help Sue with her daily physical therapy, and very good parking and care to ensure easy access – even during the worst of snow storms like this past winter. We have been members for over 2 years and have enjoyed the continuous care to provide a clean club and quality equipment. The Staff is helpful, with great attitudes and a pleasant greeting every day – from the front desk to the trainers and the instructors. The owner, Dave Bundy, takes a very active part in properly managing this gym to make sure the gym experience is constantly a positive experience."

"The family that works out together stays together. It’s a family affair. So the best part of Global Fitness is everything! The classes rock, the weight room is awesome, the friendships are forever, the shakes are fantastic and most importantly my kids LOVE childcare. We recently traveled on vacation to Grand Cayman and I wanted to take ten pounds off. I took every and any class offered - yoga, blast, power, kick. I was truly out of my comfort zone. I ended up losing 12 pounds and gained new friendships and respect for the professionalism and care each and every instructor took in their class. The staff is what keeps the Rosenfeld's coming in each and every day! They are simply the best! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"

"As a former 200m/400m professional sprinter, I have trained at some of the best Olympic strength and conditioning centers in the US and Canada. Global provides the right balance for training, often mirroring the spirit of some these centers. When it comes to preferred gyms, quality of equipment and atmosphere for competitive training, I prefer Global because of the staff and the fact that it allows me to train as an athlete."

"Global Fitness is my Happy Place! It is where I can let go of my stress of the day and treat my body right. The instructors are first rate. They really care, and motivate you to take it to the next level. I also love that everyone is always so friendly and encouraging. It is not only a great place to work out, it is also a great place to make new friends!"

"My wife and I joined Global in October 2013 because we wanted a convenient way to become more fit and potentially meet people in our area. We have found the fitness classes to be both helpful in reaching our fitness goals and accommodating to our busy work schedules. The staff are welcoming and friendly, and fitness instructors are encouraging and receptive to feedback. The fitness equipment meets our needs and is usually available, even during peak workout times. Overall, our experience has been very good and we look forward to working toward our existing and future fitness goals with Global Fitness."
"I have been a member of Global Fitness in Stow for more than 10 years. GF is a very friendly workout club to both novices and serious athletes. Having been a member of several other clubs in the past, I can say the staff at GF are the friendliest and most knowledgeable in the area. They sincerely care about the opinions and input from their members. Across the desk from the entrance is a bulletin board where members can post their questions and suggestions which are answered by the owner Dave in a very direct to the point manner. Perhaps you are looking for an extra yoga or spin class, or you suggest a new piece of equipment. They are very accommodating whenever possible. GF is not a "spa" type club. No racquetball courts, swimming pools, or laundry service. This also keeps the costs and fees down as well. They do have some very good deals though with the Atkinson pool in Sudbury. The personal trainers and group instructors I feel are top notch, with many certifications and well respected in the area. Locker rooms are always kept clean and tidy. The equipment is kept in good condition with new machines added regularly. A health bar is available where the staff can whip up a protein drink after a hard workout or sports drink to rehydrate after a long run. There are a wide variety of classes to choose from including yoga, pilates, kick, spin and many other special event classes. Many of the instructors have taught for many years and have very loyal followings. You will find many different groups of people at GF from the regular treadmill runners who workout before commuting to Boston, the Moms that come in the mid-morning for a Group Power or Yoga class, the lunchtime group getting in a quick half hour power workout, and the after 5 o'clock members releasing a bit of work tension with a Power class or taking it down a notch with a slow yoga class. There are plenty of serious regulars too, making use of the well-appointed selection of free weights and resistance machines."
