Best Workout in Decatur!
Love! Love! Love! Kick in the Fit! I'm not athletic and never have been, but thanks to KITF I am now in the best shape of my life.

I now look forward to showing up each day. It isn't easy but anyone can do it.
Gartrell - an exceptional personal trainer
I last wrote about my experience with Gartrell, owner of Total Fitness Control in Decatur, in November 2010.

Pregnancy Water aerobics and H2O Babies was great
