" The Well is perfect for me. It is not large but the trainers are all super qualified. The studio is a great size and offers all of the equipment I would ever need. The best thing about The Well is that its clients, like me, all consider ourselves a workout family. That unique atmosphere and hard-to-create culture is all Brian’s doing. I love The Well Studio."   

- Jim Foster

" I entered The Well two years ago, counting french fries as my daily vegetable and getting winded walking up a single flight of stairs. I started slow, with 30 minute gentle sessions a few times a week and the goal of cutting out only potato chips from my diet. Within 3 months, friends and family would ask what I was doing different. A year later, a saleswoman from Nike said, "Tell me everything you're doing to make your arms look like that." Within the year, I dropped 70 points off my cholesterol levels, and graduated off blood pressure medication. My cardiologist refers to me as his "miracle patient." It's not an understatement to say The Well, and Shawn Nethercott, changed my life. Not only my exercise and nutritional habits, but my outlook, the way I see myself, and my mental health. They took me from a position of weakness to strength on every level, and its paying dividends in ways I could never have anticipated."  

- Marrie Stone

" I enjoy my time training at The Well. The facility and equipment are new, the trainers and staff are well informed and educated, and overall I've found the total experience is first class. Collectively the trainers worked with me to create and define goals as well as refine my training regime, which has resulted in dramatically improved athletic performance and the achievement of my personal health and fitness goals."   

- Mark M.

" Brian and the entire team of fitness professionals at The Well are completely dedicated to helping clients achieve their personal fitness goals. The enjoyable atmosphere and personal service is such a welcome relief from the big corporate gyms I'd previously belonged to."  

 - Robert H.
