Take a look at some of the testimonials and reviews we’ve received.

If I could give Synergy more than 5 stars I would. I joined a year ago and absolutely love it. I've never stuck with a program this long before ever. The trainers are incredible - patient, knowledgeable and motivating. They truly care about your health and wellness. If you're thinking about joining, it's absolutely worth it!

I had just started at Synergy at my last doctor's appointment 5 months ago. I had a tri-annual appointment today and my doctor was THRILLED! I am down 34 lbs and my blood pressure fell 11 points! And I can't wait to see what we can do before the next doctor's appointment!
Charlie Pritchett
I love Synergy in Endwell. The team is upbeat, knowledgeable and VERY encouraging! I set myself up with a number of personal 'hitting 50' goals this year from weight loss, strength build up, triathlon finish, ... I got there with each one. As I reach a goal, I set a new one. I'm on the injured list for a few more weeks … but can't wait to get back on track with Holly, Bryon and the rest of Joe's team.
Chris McCloe
Before I started synergy there was no way I would have the confidence to run a 5k and I did 2 last week!!! You guys rule.
