"I can't say enough about the Dexter Wellness Center! The class selections are great and the atmosphere is very motivating. I've tried many different gyms and have finally found the perfect fit and location for me!
"I swam competitively for 13 years while in school and always wanted to better my health, but I've struggled with my weight my entire life. Something always stopped me from progressing, whether it be stress, the holidays, busy schedules, or simply just a good meal. The weight never came off. As a 24-year-old woman I weighed in at 335 pounds, I felt trapped in my body, and I desperately needed help!
"I decided to have weight loss surgery in 2012, and by combining that with solid nutrition, exercise, and discipline, I've proudly lost 130 pounds so far. In fact, my physician has been so happy with my progress that she now shares my story as an example when working with young female patients who are overweight.
"The Dexter Wellness Center came into my life at the most perfect time - I now have all the support and resources I need to continue my journey of wellness. I'm so grateful to be developing my strength and skills for living a healthy, active lifestyle!
"Not only has The Dexter Wellness Center gotten me back in the pool after 8 years, it has opened so many different doors of possibilities for me. I've been able to take advantage of all sorts of classes: Water Aerobics, Cardio Kick & Conditioning, Cardio Fusion, Group Cycling, and much more! Because I can participate in a huge list of classes that are free to members, working out has become such a fun and exciting part of my day. The instructors here really help you to succeed-they give you goals and motivate you to keep going even when you don't think you can anymore! In the end, that's what we all need. We need to be encouraged to keep going and never give up!
"The Dexter Wellness Center has motivated me to become everything I've ever dreamed of becoming in my health and fitness. I can't wait to see where being a member here takes me!" - Individual Results May Vary
"There's so much I like about the Dexter Wellness Center! What appealed to me first was its expansive layout. I love the fact that everywhere I look, I see natural lighting and the outdoors. Sunny days in the pool are like being at the beach! Also, the equipment is excellent—it's such a pleasure to work with state-of-the-art equipment that is completely adaptable to each person's size and strength.
"A big draw for me is the pools. I attend four water aerobic and aqua Pilates classes each week, and all of us who attend agree that it's the perfect solution for those who are unable to run or bike. Since starting at the Center in June, I've lost 22 pounds, and I have more energy than I have had in several years. I work out on the weight machines and free weights before swimming, which not only provides strength conditioning but also facilitates the exercises I need to address a shoulder injury. I’ve become friends with the weight room staff, and I know that I can ask their help whenever I need it. Having met so many happy and friendly people at DWC—staff and members—definitely keeps me coming back. My friends in the pool classes always notice when I’m absent!
"I’m so excited about my health continuing to improve—when I work out in the mornings, it keeps me on track for the rest of my day. I know there are other gyms out there, but none provide the opportunities that DWC does. And as far as building community, the center is really doing the job. People are meeting, talking, getting to know each other. Even though I live on the border between Chelsea and Dexter, the Center has made me feel as much a part of Dexter as if I lived right in the village. It's really nice to get to know more people and feel more closely involved with my 'neighbors!'" - Individual Results May Vary
"I like how big and nice the facility is. I’m most impressed with the locker room and the service. The center’s very spacious and always kept spotless, and the towels and toiletries are always well-stocked. I also want to say how friendly everyone is. Some mornings when I walk into the center, I’m only half-awake, but someone always greets me at the front desk with a big smile. What a nice way to start my day! The classes are another great part of membership. I like being able to explore many classes that I had never tried before, such as Vinyasa Yoga and Group Cycling. Rather than running all the time (which is what I used to do), now I can do a variety of exercises throughout the week—there are so many options! I also appreciate how the center offers discounted corporate membership plans. My company is only about a mile from the center, and many employees have enrolled, which creates a great wellness culture at work!" - Individual Results May Vary
"I’ve been visiting the Wellness Center five to six times a week, and I feel great! I’ve lost weight and have noticed better strength, flexibility, and endurance. The complimentary fitness assessment I received was really informative, and I look forward to future follow-ups to measure my progress!
I love the layout of the building, especially all the windows and outside views of Dexter on the second floor and in the pool areas. The workout and exercise machines are all state-of-the-art, and the staff throughout the facility are super-friendly and helpful. I also appreciate the ample parking, facility hours, and the very clean and well-equipped locker rooms.
I started out with the group cycling classes (my favorite) and the weight machines and free weights, but I’ve now added swimming to my exercise regimen. I look forward to trying other exercise and aqua classes in the future! I love the community aspect of the Dexter Wellness Center – it’s great to see so many people working on their health and fitness goals and enjoying themselves so much." - Individual Results May Vary
"Dexter Wellness Center is a great facility and the option of the Kids in Motion childcare program is a HUGE benefit for parents. Our daughters love it—the first week we joined the center, our girls asked us to work out longer, because they wanted to stay the full two hours allowed with our membership plan! Every day they get excited to go back to their 'teachers' at the center. As a busy parent, I really like being able to work out right here in Dexter and not have to commute to neighboring towns. It’s great being able to get exercise while our kids are in the Kids In Motion area–it’s such a safe and enjoyable environment!" - Individual Results May Vary
"I really like the center’s medical integration, and how the center staff worked with my doctor to ensure it was safe for me to work out. Since joining the center, I’ve lost weight, improved my energy levels, and enjoyed some really fun classes! At the DWC, each member gets the attention they need, and the staff answers any questions we have with patience and care." - Individual Results May Vary
