Client Testimonial: Julie and Collin

Collin and I have been seeing Jake Harre for our strength training for several years now. He has also improved are overall health. He is very personable and listens to what your personal needs are. Jake helped Collin after his heart attack and me after I broke my patella plateau.

I do believe that Collin would not be here without Jake's help over the past few years. He has been a
real positive influence for both of us and has
become a very good friend.

Client Testimonials: Nick Haynes

I've been working out with Jake Roode for almost a year now. Most recently he's helped me train for my first strongman competition. I was working out with Jake 3 times a week for 16 weeks straight. Jake took time and custom tailored my workouts to achieve maximum strength for the events. 16 weeks for strongman comp is a long time, he really helped me stay focused and dialed in mentally when I didn't want to lift. We even worked through a couple self inflicted injuries during those 16 weeks. Jake also helped me dial in my macros and nutrition in prep for this event. I def recommend Jake as
a personal trainer. He's a great guy.


Pool reservations for the following program: Lanes 2 and 3 reserved on Tuesday from 1:00PM to 2:00PM and Thursday from 5:30AM to 6:30AM, and all lanes will be reserved on Thursday from 7:15PM to 8:15PM. Thank you!


Client Testimonial: Bruce

Upon retirement in my 60s, while in good shape, I wanted to improve my level of fitness and establish a more consistent training schedule. To do this I
trained with Jake for two years. He was fantastic. Jake quickly assessed my current fitness level and areas that needed improvement. He designed a customized program for my needs and modified it as
I progressed. Jake did an excellent job adding variety to my routine and providing needed motivation for me to maintain my training long term. Working with Jake I easily reduced percent body fat while increasing
muscle mass. I would without hesitation recommend Jake to anyone serious about taking their fitness program to the next level.


Client Testimonial: Zane McAnelly

Since working out with Jake, I have gotten a lot stronger and built my confidence. With my sports, my work outs have shown a lot when I compete. Jake is really nice to be around and I look forward to going to workouts. I have a learned a lot things about my body and how to be healthy! I also like to see my friends and enjoy working out with them! Jake also let's me know what to do after a workout and checks in on my healthy habits! I like that he cares about my health and has taught me a lot more about my body and health! Jake is awesome!

Client Testimonial: Emily Sundt

I hired Jake about a year and a half ago to help me with my form when lifting. I had a few lifts I wasn’t comfortable with, he showed me how to perform them properly. I’ve continued on and he has helped me through a few injuries and ways to continue lifting to help rehab them. Jake really takes the time to understand your needs and goals and helps you
get there. If you are on the fence about personal training I highly suggest you give it a try.


Client Testimonial: Tim Anderson

So stuff happens... The last two years I've definitely had an issue with food and some sort of coping mechanism in addition to leaving a physical job my weight has piled on. Heaviest I've ever been. It is what it is. I finally decided I had had enough. Time to get my health back. With help from Jake Harre, I'm definitely headed in the right direction. This is 10 weeks of progress and me complaining to Jake about the scale. I was shocked at how the process went. The scale is a liar. It's time to enjoy vacation and see what the next 10 weeks brings.


Dolly is here waiting for you and your friends to get this year started off right!

Regular Hours Friday!


Client Testimonial: Jim Morris

I’ve had Jake Harre as my coach for a little over two years now. In that time, I have learned a lot about my sport and general wellness. I had been working out on my own for a little over three years and was skeptical about hiring a coach. After hearing about Jake from a couple of friends, I thought I’d give it a shot. What I learned quickly was that having someone to keep me on track through the good and the bad was invaluable. When things go well, I have someone to share that progress with. When things don’t go so well, I have someone to bounce ideas off as to why. Jake knows how to motivate and make my workouts challenging yet fun. If you are considering hiring a coach or a trainer, I would recommend Jake Harre without hesitation.


Good evening!

I’m sure everyone saw the email, but in case you haven’t — we will be CLOSED tomorrow, Thursday 12.22.22 due to the incoming storm.

Thank you all and stay safe!


Client Testimonial: Seth Lamb

I've been working with Jake Harre for 3.5+ years now. I started with in person training but was able to transition to online training. Jake helped build my strength and flexibility. Jake introduced me to the sport of Strongman. His weekly workouts were focused on my needs. Over the past 3.5 years I have experienced many PRs and strength gain.

Jake is always available to give advice on the workouts or issues I'm experiencing. Through Jake I have been able to compete in multiple local strongman competitions. He understands my goals and is great at keeping me motivated and focused on my goals.

Client Testimonial: Mary Lamka

This grandma has had the pleasure of working with Christy Waterman as my person trainer twice weekly for the last 18 months. Christy has both the background knowledge and experience needed to successfully design and implement my 30-minute workouts. She is able to instantly modify new routines to eliminate discomfort and prevent injury. I have always felt more energized after each training session. Kayaking for the first time was always on my bucket list; Christy enabled this 69 year-old to enjoy a full day of kayaking in August in Alaska! Thank you, Christy!


Client Testimonial: Mari Gannon

My husband and I have been a member of this health club for many years. We have had successes and failures throughout this time in our training exercises including, completing the Marine Corps Marathon in October of 2004, together. But the sad part of it is, we were never able to develop a sustainable plan to improve our health. We have never invested any financial resources in our health, but are willing to spend money on all kinds of life style activities. We all know too well... without our health, we have nothing!!!! I told my husband it was time for me to seek some help.

I have been working with Christy for the last two years. My goals were to get in shape, with the main focus, improving on my overall strength. In our initial discussion, Christy stated that she had a exercise program that included strength training, daily walking exercises, along with proper diet, and eating habits that would achieve the results that I desired. Also through this prescribed training, various stretch goals of mine, was to work on my overall complete body health. It is now September 27, 2022, and I have achieved the goals that I set out to do and I made my stretch goal and have a program with Christy to continue to improve and maintain the strength goals that I have achieved.

Through the positive attitude and reinforcement, of the daily workouts and discussions with Christy, I have developed a dedication to continuing on my own, to improve on my healthy life style that I so desire. None of this would have been possible without Christy’s guidance. She continues to challenge me, with a great sense of humor, but is always concerned that I am improving my overall health in the proper way. We discuss food, proper eating habits, and the challenges of not having a well balanced diet might present. Christy always offers suggestions, and listens to any comments I have, or ideas that I have been successful with. I have enjoyed my training experience with Christy. She is a great mentor, and someone that is easy to be accountable to. I would not have been as successful if I had not had her guidance and pushing me along the way of a
healthier life style. I would highly recommend Christy to anyone. She is not just a trainer, Christy has become my friend!

Client Testimonial: Kelley Johnson

I contacted Legacy Fitness about 9 months ago, looking for a trainer who could give me tips and ideas for core exercises that would help with my possible ab separation from a previous

Christy was recommended by a staff member and she was spectacular at providing me with some great ab exercises! Sessions with her were educational, productive and very useful!

I continue to use her advise and techniques when doing my ab exercises and routines at home. I saw results as well about mid way through our 6-8 weeks of sessions and continue to as I do
my workouts.

Future plans include continuing to incorporate what I have learned from Christy into my routines and increasing the reps and
intensity when ready to do so. Thanks for all of your help, Christy!


Client Testimonial: Greg Lamka

Most of my life I have been a very active individual. I grew up on a farm and have participated in high school football, martial arts, racket ball, lap swimming, and bicycling. However, as I became a senior the three degenerated disks in my back and an arthritic hip prevented me from exercising. Therefore, I turned to using professional exercise trainers. Christy has developed customized exercise routines for me that help increase my flexibility, balance, strength, and endurance. At the same time the routines are designed to not aggravate my existing health conditions.

Additionally, Christy always greets you with a smile and is encouraging throughout her training sessions.

Client Testimonial: Dan Gannon

My wife and I have been a member of Legacy Fitness for many years. I have had many successes throughout this time in various training programs since 2011. In January 2020, the COVID crisis was beginning to consume us, I had gotten away from any fitness program, gained some weight back, and I had developed a chronic neck and shoulder pain that wasn’t going away. I began working with a physical therapist, but my progress was slow, attaining meager results, in other words not satisfied!
I decided to reach back to Legacy and TJ set me up with a consultation with Christy Waterman. Through my consultation with Christy, on October 12th, 2020, she was able to quickly identify my health issues, my future goals and developed a comprehensive and thorough training program where it appeared to me, to be a positive and uplifting program to move forward with.

I have been working with Christy, as my personal trainer now for over two years, and I couldn’t be happier with the results and experience. My chronic pain, which two years ago was extremely painful, and debilitating to the point that I was unable to have the full range of motion, is gone, and I have all of my shoulder and neck motion back.

I have been amazed at the progress Christy has made with me. Amazing!!!! Christy is extremely encouraging and pushes me to achieve the goals we have set. She is very personable and a well rounded person and trainer. She has helped me tone and strengthen my body, so I can move forward with a healthier life style.

None of this would have been possible without Christy’s guidance. Christy always offers suggestions regarding her training program to best fit my lifestyle. She listens to any comments that I may have and is able to adjust my program accordingly. Christy has demonstrated to me her knowledge, professional skill set, and expertise, as a personal trainer and is someone that is easy to be accountable to.

In closing, I can say without a doubt, this has been a great experience and has gone above and beyond my expectations. I personally believe, I would not have been as successful with my recovery, if I had not had Christy’s guidance, and pushing me along my way of a healthier life style. Through my experience, I can say, Legacy Fitness should be proud of her as part of their personal training team and a great asset
to the fitness center. As a member of Legacy Fitness, I would highly recommend Christy to anyone. She is not just my personal trainer. Christy has become a good friend.
