Barbara Taormina

The one thing I have enjoyed about SH&W is the atmosphere. Everyone is friendly and the personal attention you receive is helpful especially when learning all the different types of equipment. I would definitely recommend it!!

Rene Kapusniak

As a runner, I value Saratoga Health & Wellness as a place for strength training and supplementing my running with alternative cardio workouts. The staff has helped me to balance my fitness program and I enjoy the spacious and inspiring environment they have created at this gym. The intake process was very thorough, including a review of many wellness factors. Impressive!

Deb Czech

I would like to let you know how very much I enjoy coming to work out at your health and wellness center. I have tried other places and have never had the quality of staff you have here. You are always ready and willing to help in any way you can not only that but you all care always asking how I am doing. The facility is always clean the atmosphere is great always the equipment is the best. When you first go you are evaluated which is showing again how much you care by finding out the important things you need to know about us to best help in our wellness. I would definitely recommend this facility to everyone. Thank you for all you all do.

I am truly enjoying going to this gym. It’s a welcoming space with friendly people and lots of great equipment. Exercise is fun at SHW!

Janet Besheer – Broker / Owner Equitas Realty

This I’d the Best Gym/Wellness center you could ever go to. Very personalized to fit your needs. Very professional and friendly. Being 51 with many ailments I am blessed to have joined this gym. Mike has been awesome with me and now I have a brighter future! Thank you Mike , Nick and all the staff.

Jodi Evans

In a word, Wonderful! I feel quite at home there, helpful and always cheerful. If you need cheering up, a workout at SH &W is way better than Prozac or other meds.

Alice Zeiger

I was a 49 year old physician who considered myself to be very healthy. I participated in sports on a regular basis, lived a healthy lifestyle and had, what I thought to be, a healthy diet. I exercised on a frequent but sporadic basis. One day while exercising, I developed some difficulty breathing. After it happened a second time a few days later, I realized it was not normal. I knew that I had to get serious about my diet and exercise. Through the help of the staff, Mike, Nick, Rebecca and Erin, I have become much healthier. I exercise on a very regular basis, have lost weight and have a much healthier diet. Not only do I feel better, but I have influenced family members and coworkers to live a healthier lifestyle…it really is contagious! As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I view my role as improving or maintaining patient’s mobility. We are born to move, we need to move and the musculoskeletal system is designed to keep us moving. Motion, or mobility, is necessary for the proper and efficient functioning of the other organ systems such as the heart and lungs, the intestinal tract, and the neurologic system (brain). Adequate movement and exercise helps fend off chronic diseases. So, for all of these reasons, I am a huge proponent of exercise. Most people in my experience, don’t do so well on their own and need some organized way to exercise, to keep them on the program. Also, many people have misinformation about nutrition, or don’t really examine their diet adequately. The professionals at Saratoga Health and Wellness are able to help with this in a most pleasant and fun environment. I have referred many patients there who continue to thank me.   

Lawrence Fein, MD - OrthoNY Surgeon

I’ve been to many gyms in the past, and this is by far my favorite one. Every staff member knew my name after my very first day. It’s like walking into Cheers, but with water and exercise equipment instead of beer and bar stools. The staff is so incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and approachable if you have any questions at all. It’s a very clean facility as well. I always check bathrooms to see how cleanly a place really is, and they passed the test. Even though I’m relatively knowledgeable about what exercises to do, I took advantage of a couple days of training and learned some new exercises and stretches. One of the employees even took the time to create a list of foods high in protein and carbohydrates (because I wanted to gain some weight and muscle mass). I typically work out after work (around 4 or 5 pm) and don’t have trouble getting equipment. They have plenty to offer. If anybody asked me whether or not they should join Saratoga Health and Wellness, I wouldn’t hesitate to say yes!

Daniel Todd

SH&W is a great well equipped facility with friendly and very well educated staff that approach fitness from an academic background. Even though I only train with Mike (which is great!), all the other staff know me there by name and always go out of their way to say hi. It’s such an encouraging & happy atmosphere rather than other gyms that may give off a less positive or more competitive vibe. I’ve learned and grown a lot in the short time I’ve been going there. Also you gotta check out the “locker rooms!” Nicer/cleaner/more homey than anywhere I’ve ever seen!

Amy Coon

Great staff, very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Very clean gym with laid back atmosphere.

Ryan Score

I feel very comfortable at SH&W. The place is very clean and the staff is friendly. I never have to wait for a machine and the temperature is usually perfect.

Elizabeth Simonetti

I hadn’t been to a gym in many years and was intimidated. Maggie worked with me to make sure I was at ease and comfortable with all the equipment. All the staff are friendly and professional and have gone out of their way to help me. I strongly reccommend SH&W to anyone who wants a personalized and warm experience!

Susan Whitaker

SH&W was recommended by two colleagues, and based on their rave reviews of Nick, Mike and the facility I started coming to the site. From my first visit, it was a welcoming environment and great workout experience with top of the line equipment, and lots of easily accessible open space. Even more amazing was the professional help and assistance I received from Nick and Mike. Unlike other gyms I’ve belonged to, SH&W is a relaxed, personalized and accommodating setting equipped to handle all the varied needs and abilities of its clients. 

Denise Graminski

I joined the drop program at SH&W, and will continue my membership for sure once I’m through the program. The staff are knowledgeable, inspirational, and just very, very, kind! I never thought I’d be the type of person who would look forward to “working out”, but I am now! My body is changing and my pain is reduced a little bit more every day. This is the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time! I can’t begin to thank the staff for all they’ve done for me so far, and I’ve only been there a month! 

Phylise Banner

Great facility and staff. My previous gym experiences have been paying for a membership and figuring out my own workout. Unfortunately, I need guidance 🙂 Thanks for the guidance Nick! I enjoy my workouts and never feel crowded. Staff is present and available and followups are part of the membership. Besides feeling better, it’s great to see my progress in black and white. 

Karen Ellis

I am very pleased with all aspects of SH&W. There is always someone available to help you. Everyone is friendly and there is always equipment available to work out on. The intake was quite impressive and thorough! I was set up with my own personal workout based on my specific needs. The facility is always very clean and the set up gives you plenty of room. After shoveling snow and hurting my back., I didn’t go for a week. Mike noticed I wasn’t in and sent me a e-mail to see if everything was ok. With all the members they have I was very impressed ! I’ve tried other gyms in the past and given up, SH&W is quite unique ! Truly the best place around!!

Kelley Marsh

Very helpful and friendly atmosphere, no wait time, beautiful new facility, staff is always smiling, great diet counseling, gradual startup for exercise program so no strained muscles 

Peter Elmendorf

Overall, my experience has been a very positive one. Nick has a great development plan for me to improve on my (golf) body/swing connection. Having been to other gyms before, I can say that Saratoga Health & Wellness is a great fit for my fitness needs and still very affordable. 

Dave Hale

For almost 11 years I went to Curves for health and wellness and when it closed in Ballston Spa, I knew I had to find a new home to work out, feel comfortable and make a new promise to myself to lose some weight and improve my all around health. Many of my Curves friends moved on to the Y and others to a local gym. My daughter suggested Saratoga Health and Wellness, although it would mean more miles and minutes to get there, I have found it to be the perfect fit. It is super clean, bright, friendly and non intimidating. Right from the beginning Mike spent lots of time assessing my needs and abilities and setting up a routine that I could handle. Everything about this place is really great. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fitness center. I feel very lucky to have found a place where people like Nick and Mike care so much for the clientele, the machines are clean and well maintained and seldom any waiting time and finally a community of friendly people. Five stars in every aspect! 

Paula Zimbal

My experience at SH&W has been great. It has really got me motivated to workout & want to lose weight so I can feel better! I have just started not long ago but my wife also joined shortly after & also enjoys going. Mike & Nick are so supportive & will help whenever you need them! Just a great place to go to exercise, everyone is friendly and helpful plus it is always very clean! Equipment is plentiful & in excellent condition! Just totally enjoy SH&W. 

George Lent

Everyone has been very helpful and always take the time to answer questions or show the workings of the equipment. The facility is always clean . I would recommend the Wellness Center to anyone of my friends. My experience so far has been very pleasant and helpful.

Frances McEwen

My happy recollections of athleticism, good health, ease of movement–now made me unhappy. At 65, I knew I couldn’t be a kid again. But I wanted to feel better than I did. Could I? After weeks of see-sawing, I stopped in at SH&W a little more than a year ago, and talked with Nick. He asked what I wanted to accomplish; asked about my general health; checked weight, height, body mass, etc. I could have a free week, with a plan made for me; I could see what SH&W offered and decide whether the place would work for me. As part of the plan Nick wrote, and following his instructions, I began to use SH&W’s exercise tools, a few at a session–struggling gently, and gradually increasing the challenge. Each visit was simple, and taxing, and a joy. Several times a week (or more often if desired), with different plans for alternate days, arrive with sneakers. Cycle through adjustable gadgets to exercise different muscles. To rest, walk in a central open space, and among machines, mats, exercise balls–equipment laid out in arcs for easy access. Say hello to fellow guests (who all have different plans, or do as they please). Stretch, look out the window. Mop the forehead; take a swig from the water bottle. With help from Nick or Mike, modify the plan. Well, in this way a year has passed. Am even more optimistic about this coming year. Everyone at SH&W knows that what we look like changes slowly; but that we’re serious about how we feel; that we want to be stronger, more agile. I won’t be a kid again–but I know my mind/body can work (together) better. Progress already, thanks to Nick and Mike. And I’m happier for me. 

Cathy Clarke

I love going to SH&W. The staff know your name and you feel so comfortable being there. No intimidation with size , age or abilities. This is the perfect place if you have health issues. The staff are always helpful and supportive. I’ve been to other gyms and this one is the BEST! 

Kate - Age 59

SH&W certainly lives up to its billing. They provide several options of participation, depending on your individual needs. Staff are quite friendly in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere. In 2 months, I have not felt any of the competitiveness one runs into in other gyms. The place is well laid out, with sufficient equipment to accommodate all comers 

Francois Bonneville

The owners of SH & W are extremely welcoming and totally focused on the needs of their members. They will take extensive time for you whenever you have a question about using the machines properly or a concern about how your body is responding to the workouts. They truly care about their members reaching their workout goals no matter what their physical condition or their age. They are there to listen and work with you, giving professional advice for your personal condition. 5 Stars!  

Carol Quirk

This is a great gym, clean and friendly. The staff is warm, friendly and most importantly knowledgeable and helpful. Mike has been very helpful as a personal trainer. I enjoy going there. A pleasant environment. I would recommend it to anyone. 

Valerie Kelsey

The staff is very encouraging and friendly. They are happy to show you how to use the machines properly. They have a variety of machines, and I rarely have to wait for the type I want. If I do, I can always busy myself on a different one. Comfortable, climate controlled environment. Great air conditioning on hot summer days! 

Sharon Hinkle

I am enrolled in the Titleist Performance Training Program at Saratoga Health and Wellness. Nick has proven to be a knowledgeable and effective exercise physiologist. Through his guidance, I have found increased flexibility and stability in my golf swing. I am starting the golf season with anticipated confidence brought on by the expert training sessions… 

Stu LaDue

The atmosphere at the wellness center is always warm and welcoming. The staff is ALWAYS so helpful! They truly are genuine and caring. I had to take a break (medical reasons) and they have been in touch to see how I am doing, which means alot to me. I look forward to returning very soon. 5 Stars! 

Deb Thompson

Mike-thanks so much for your expertise and the ability to modify a program for me. The staff is great and very helpful and approachable. I Like the open space and sun through the window. The palm tree in the corner adds to my “feeling like I am riding a bike in Jamaica” experience while I am on the nustep….just know some day I may leave with a tan and a bottle of Red Stripe lager:) (ha). I am feeling strong and better. This has been the best exercise experience to date…slow, steady progress without any back sliding due to re-injury. Thanks 

P. Gizzi

Just a wonderful experience. Staff are friendly and always available to answer questions and seem genuinely interested in their clientel. Facilities are clean, well-kept and state-of-the-art. Atmosphere is casual and low-key, particularly suitable to us baby-boomers. The first 6 months in the program I lost a whopping 25 pounds and am now concentrating on my maintenance program & increasing overall strength. This is the first time I’ve ever belonged to a gym and I’m extremely glad that my first encounter was with the staff at Saratoga Health & Wellness !!! Highly & frequently recommended !!! 

Bill Walker

Love the place. Staff is really freindly and helpful. 

Tom Federlin

I am a reluctant member. When I appear I am greeted by name[always] and encouraged to do my best. Staff and other members are caring people. The physical atmosphere is soothing and cheerful. I usually have a laugh when I appear. 

Jean Cremen

My experience with SH &W has been absolutely outstanding. Working out isn’t always fun but every time I step into the gym I always receive a warm welcome from Mike and Nick. Their warmth actually has me feeling like I want to go to the gym. I don’t feel like a number but a cared about member. The equipment is clean and always available……no waiting! Plus, and this is a big plus, the place is absolutely spotless; including the restrooms! I would highly recommend SH&W to anyone interested in a more “family style” kind of atmosphere. 

Laura Bykofski

My experience has been fantastic. I am treated more like family than a member. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and always willing to make you comfortable. The facility and equipment is always kept clean with equipment being added and updated regularly. I truly believe if you went to another center you would not get the quality of care and knowledge receive from Saratoga Health and Wellness Center 

Bill Strauss

I have found the staff approachable and friendly. It is nice to be welcomed by name – makes you feel like a person vs a membership. All the equipment is in good condition and there is always equipment available even during the rush in the evening. This is the first gym I have joined where I don’t dread going – no one makes you feel uncomfortable or inadequate. 

Joan Haskell

There are gyms and there are gyms but Saratoga Health and Wellness is like coming home each time one visits. It’s like being at Cheers, where everyone knows your name! 

Staff are really like family members. They are cheerful, supportive and caring.. always! It is a warm, clean environment with plenty of exercise choices. And, if you are a tad under the weather (i.e. joints aching), you can speak to any one of this extended family and get excellent ideas about how to cope with the problem, very likely through exercise. 

It’s a user-friendly environment with members of all of the age spectrum, which are very supportive of each other. Like I said, it’s like visiting Cheers! 

I love this place and would not hesitate recommending it (and have) to friends, family, et. al. Mike, Nick, Erin and Rebecca make it very special! 

Frank J. Auriemmo, Jr.

Wonderful clean facility. Very helpful and friendly staff who are always available for questions and help if needed. Equipment is great quality with plenty of availability for use. The atmosphere is friendly and casual with no pressure or anxiety about working on what is best for you. I am always confortable there and look forward to going. 

Sue Horne

I have been going to SH&W for slightly over one year. It is a very friendly and clean facility and the trainers are very friendly and knowledgeable. They are available whenever I have a question and appreciate how they make me feel comfortable working out there. Thank you Nick, Mike and Erin. 

Sue Walker

I find the facility to be accessible,well- equipped ,well maintained & pleasant to attend.The staff are knowledgeable, courteous, approachable. encouraging. I would not hesitate to recommend the Center to anyone. 

David Wasser

The staff at SH&W is top notch. They are knowledgeable, and welcoming. I found the evaluation process very helpful and motivating. Staff has been willing to work with me to create a workout routine that suites my needs and is varied enough that I don’t get bored. The facility is always clean and there are sufficient stations available with wipes for the equipment. The overall atmosphere is friendly and professional. The overhead music is not always motivating, however this is cured by using my own MP3 player. Equipment is always available at the times when I am at the gym. I am frustrated with the limited hours. I train after work and on weekends and would love the gym to be open later! My overall impression and experience is positive.
