“My name is Barry Tharp and I struggled with my weight my whole adult life. Over eating was only one part of it. Even though I was a member of a local gym I rarely used it consistently and then would fall off the wagon and not go back for months. I joined Super Fit almost 3 years ago now and it has not only changed my body but my mind. I honestly never thought I would be this committed to physical fitness but in my time at Super Fit I have learned how much being physically healthy makes you a happier person. At my heaviest I weighed 276lbs had Sleep Apnea, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and was close to being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I now weigh 189lbs and have none of these ailments and life couldn’t be better!”
~Barry Tharp, Edmonds, WA
Prior to joining Super Fit, I was receiving physical therapy for back problems. After just two months, I am no longer experiencing pain. In addition, my ability to participate in physical activities is back to 100%.
Super Fit is an absolute value. The trainers know me personally: my needs and abilities. They push me while maintaining an awareness of any physicallimitations I have. I receive personal training without the high price!”
Lifting heavy weights has not made my muscles big. Strength training helped me lose weight faster and keep it off in the long run. I had to change my eating habits and monitor the calorie count to lose weight and build muscle. As the fat melted off, my body looks leaner and firmer, and that is exactly what happened to me.
Super Fit helped me lose weight from their circuit strength training. The Super Fit program is excellent, and so are the trainers that provide professional instruction and motivation to try harder and see the results faster. My commitment to the program is Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at 5:00 a.m. I walk in and the trainers have everything set up for me and they are on constant watch making sure my form and intensity are spot on. Another big bonus, “no thinking necessary!” Super Fit has helped me get in the best shape of my life, and I’m 57 years old!
The things that keep me going back to Super Fit are:
1. Sticking with it: Super Fit has become a regular appointment on my calendar. Their well planned exercise routines with individual instruction and coaching from the trainers keeps me motivated and encouragement shared among classmates is very supportive.
2. The rewarding feeling of accomplishment: I have noticeably better strength for my daily activities and much improved stamina. I feel better and look back at the result of 5 years of training with great satisfaction and forward to many more.
June 6, 2016 – “This has been a great opportunity for my mom and I to do something together that we both enjoy.
Super Fit is a place where people of all different shapes and sizes can come together and work hard for their personal fitness. It doesn’t matter your age, your level of athleticism, or any other physical characteristic. It’s sincerely for every person who wants to better themselves in a positive environment with awesome people and coaches.
I come from a competitive Olympic weightlifting background and found myself not enjoying it nor progressing the way I wanted to. I was training in a way that was creating gaps in my strength. My mom and I would come back from our training in the evenings and there was a startling difference in our attitudes and satisfaction with the workouts we had completed. The difference was that my mom was doing Super Fit and I was not. When I realized that what she was doing seemed a lot more fun, I decided to come in one afternoon and by the end of the class, I was totally and utterly exhausted. It was the most inspiring and motivating moment for my personal fitness at the end of my first session. I had found the right coaching, programming and people to surround myself with in order to achieve fitness in the way that it should be.
Currently, my mom and I religiously go to our Super Fit three times a week and are always equally pumped up about the things we can accomplish. Though her and I are completely different athletes (she is a long distance runner) we both have a great experience and love getting a bit sore from the workouts during the week. This has been a great opportunity for my mom and I to do something together that we both enjoy.
After doing Super Fit for a short amount of time, I have seen and felt numerous changes. My Olympic weightlifting has gotten better in that my strength has been dramatically better-rounded (especially my core). In addition to this, what I see in the mirror and on the scale have been pretty great.
With the help of Jeff and Linda, I am moving forward in a direction of fitness that when I come home afterwards, I am excited and completely satisfied with what I did that hour of the day. Needless to say, Super Fit rocks!”

“We’ve working out at Super Fit for three years now and have found that it’s absolutely perfect for the both of us. For years we had tried private personal training and the big-box gyms but always seemed to have to motivate ourselves over and over again. When we discovered there was something different called “Group Training” at Super Fit, we immediately became huge fans and have found working out to be much more enjoyable, definitely more effective and a tremendous value for our money ($18 per hour for Master Personal Trainers – you can’t beat that).
Super Fit has a fun atmosphere of people of all ages, sizes and shapes. The full-body workouts are very comprehensive and personally tailored to each individual. My wife Karen and I attend the recommended three sessions a week and always get more than enough personal instruction and guidance – you’re never left in the dark.
The other terrific aspect of Super Fit is their flexible schedule – if you can’t make the 4 pm, you can go to the 5 pm and not miss your workout. This works great with our busy schedules and we have seen great results not only in how we look and feel, but also in our strength and reduced injuries.”

“The problem is that I always made the excuse of having no time to work out. Well, all it takes is getting through Super Fit’s door (usually barely awake). I just do what the trainers tell me to. It’s a quick and efficient workout that doesn’t get boring. The results are clear… I feel more energetic, positive and I am significantly stronger and more toned. Thanks to Jeff, Linda, Eddie and Brian.”
“Super Fit has aided me in changing my outlook on fitness. I am a 21-year-old fitness instructor and prior to Super Fit I thought cardio was the only way to reach my fitness goals. Starting Super Fit at age 20 I was introduced to a program that would not only reconstruct my shape, but provide stability in my all around strength and agility. I have been battling Lupus for years now and with the help from Super Fit I have been able to continue to press forward to not let Lupus define me. “
“Super Fit provides a warm and welcoming environment that insures results due to the passion and dedication from the staff. I always have a good time working out and I leave Super Fit sweating like I have never worked out before. Last summer I was working out 3 days a week, we often times focused on muscles I would have never thought to tone such as my forearm. We did these extremely intense exercises that strengthened my muscles in my arms and wrists. At the time, I thought nothing of it or why I would need those muscles to be focused on. Then in the fall, I fell while teaching and came close to breaking my wrist. The doctor told me that the only reason why I didn’t break it is because of the strength in my muscles in my forearm as well as my wrist. For that, I owe a big thanks to Super Fit for keeping my bones protected! I will continue to go to Super Fit for that added intensity into my workout, even as a fitness instructor, I am still constantly being challenged at Super Fit!”

Now I’m back at Super Fit and in shape, strong and feel great! The camaraderie of the group, the ability of the trainers to challenge me, the encouragement, the results were all missing when I left. I’m sticking with Super Fit…I can’t afford not too! At only $17 per hour it’s an immeasurable value. Also, I get to workout with my husband and three experienced trainers.
Jeff Turner is amazing! Not only has his personal training made us stronger and leaner but he’s a nonstop fountain of health and wellness information. He keeps fresh, new info at every station and throughout training he’s calling out statistics, new research and tips. “Jeff-isms” as we fondly refer to them. Jeff, Linda and Eddie are helping us meet our immediate goals while ensuring an active, healthy retirement down the road.”
I am in the best shape of my life – it really isn’t about the scale anymore – it is about being fit, everything else falls into place if you get yourself fit. I have always wanted to run a 5k and I am running that every day and doing a race for fun every month. I feel very good about showing my kids that taking care of yourself needs to be a top priority – not just to lose weight – but to be able to truly live the life you want each and every day.”
With only a few members per trainer at a typical workout session, I got all the customized support I wanted or needed. Noticeable improvements in muscle tone came within weeks. Four years later, I still love the program and find it easy to workout consistently.
Today, as a 61-year-old woman, I can do pushups on my toes with hand claps! Super Fit sessions have cost me way less than hiring a personal training, but I bet you my Super Fit results have far exceeded any I would have achieved with private training. Thank you, Super Fit!”
“I LOVE working out at Super Fit because with each workout, I feel like I have gotten THE BEST workout I could possibly ask for. We all know the hardest part is getting to the gym, but I look forward to going to Super Fit each time. The trainers are amazing, helpful and push you to get the maximum out of each exercise and set that we do. AND, all you have to do is get in the door. The sessions are ready to go. You just have to be ready to sweat! When I went to other gyms, I didn’t push myself and I didn’t really feel like I fit in or was appreciated. Jeff, Linda, and Eddie are awesome and they really do care about their clients.
I have been coming here for over a year now and with the exception of vacations out of town or illness, I won’t let myself miss a workout. I have noticed a higher energy level, better night’s sleep and a confidence in my body’s abilities. I feel so much better about myself AND my body, better than I’ve EVER felt! Plus, I am getting stronger and I feel proud when I leave the gym, knowing that I gave it and got 110%. Thank you Super Fit!”
Beth K., Edmonds, WA
Somehow these people have figured out how to take people of all ages and all fitness levels, put them in a small group for a workout, and give them all personalized attention, AND IT REALLY WORKS! In fact, IT WORKS REALLY GREAT! I have lots of expensive workout equipment gathering dust at home ever since I started at Super Fit. What I’ve learned since starting at Super Fit is it’s not the equipment but the trainers who make for a truly great and rewarding workout experience!
I don’t care how much money you spend on workout equipment, it will never motivate you, it won’t discipline you, it won’t help you do what you need to do when you need to do it – Super Fit will!”
“The price is much more economical for personal training. The trainers are extremely professional, knowledgeable and personable. Classes are smaller than the bigger health clubs, therefore the workouts are much more efficient and effective with consistent one-on-one attention.
When I consistently attend the classes and see the progress from getting in there, it is a very easy decision to continue with what works.
My endurance has improved to where I can work out harder on my cardio. When I see and feel the results from those efforts, it helps me make wiser decisions regarding food choices.
Super Fit is an excellent value. I have paid for personal trainers before and never got results like I get at Superfit. To see a personal trainer 3 times a week would cost $150.00, not at Superfit – it only costs me $49.”
Lisa E., Edmonds, WA
I love the way I feel after every workout, the trainers are great and the hours are so flexible and convenient. I have only been here for a few months but noticed a dramatic change in my body. My energy level has gone way up and no more mid day crashes! My clothes are fitting better and I feel happier and motivated. For the first time I see myself reaching my goal.
Super Fit is a great value because you get a team of trainers that help you every workout. The trainers are great and always motivating. I feel that there is a sincere interest in my well-being and you can’t put a value on that in today’s world!”
It’s a great workout. I feel I’m learning exercise principles I can use for the rest of my life. I’m not blindly following a self-governed workout that I found in a magazine.
Super Fit has made me a more complete athlete. Rather than just a sport specific workout, my entire body has gotten stronger and leaner.
Super Fit is absolutely a great value. I get personal guidance and support for less that a piece of home fitness equipment that ends up being used as a clothes hanger!”
Super Fit is a great value because people pay thousands of dollars for personal trainers and that’s not the case here. It’s very affordable and that keeps me getting the professional help I need to look good and feel good.”
Super Fit has changed the shape of my body as well as given me more energy and a better mood.
Super Fit is an excellent value. There are about six people in each class. With three trainers and the way they divide you into two groups it’s just like one-on-one training. They are constantly monitoring my form and they always get me to go a few more reps which are the ones that are changing my body!”
When I don’t want to go to work out because I am tired, I know the type of workout is going to make me feel great and energized when I’m done.
I have lowered my heart rate, blood pressure and have much more energy and stamina. Weight gain is not an issue anymore. I seem to lose a little every week.
I can’t think of any other way to feel good – the value you receive far exceeds the little I pay each session!”
“The Super Fit gym is excellent, the trainers are excellent, the equipment is excellent and it is a superb value. It has a wide range of aerobic and weight lifting equipment and exercises. The trainers are skilled, helpful, supportive and encouraging. They play close attention and instruct in proper body mechanics to prevent or heal athletic injuries.
I have increased my strength and endurance. I can lift luggage and my bike so much easier. The discipline of regular attendance has improved my health and body appearance. Super Fit is absolutely the best value!”
Sarah B, Edmonds, WA
I know I’m in the best shape of my life. I’ve gained about six pounds of muscle and I’m stronger than I’ve ever been.
Super Fit is an awesome value. For the price and the superb coaching, I couldn’t get that anywhere else!”
Super Fit has made me stronger than I ever thought possible. I have more muscle and a lot less fat which has completely changed the shape of my body. After a workout at Super Fit, I feel so energized and satisfied that what I did was the best I could do. I know that I am in the best shape of my life.”
I have increased my lean body mass and have lowered my body fat percentage and I have gotten so much stronger. It’s fun to know that from the first day to now – 3 years later – I know that I’m stronger because I’ve gone to a the highest possible weights. I can see definition in my arms and all over.
I think Super Fit is a great value – especially if you can do the 76-session package (only $17 per hour) and that’s for personalized training! If I went to get personal training anywhere else, I would pay so much more but wouldn’t get as good of a session.”
Dear Edmonds Beacon,
You should really do a story about Super Fit. They are right on the Edmonds Lynnwood border on 196th. They are really amazing because it’s not a franchise or a global brand – they are an independent business delivering an incredible product. They are a group training fitness concept. Instead of a private trainer, a group of 6-12 people share 3-4 trainers in what has to be the most sensible and effective workout program I’ve ever experienced.
I passed the place for years because I thought it was for weight trainers – but it’s nothing like that. There are young people and old people, slender and heavy, veterans, athletes, moms, and even a few local celebrities (our secret) – all work out together in the highest respect and cooperation. It is truly an amazing experience and everything has to do with the owners. Jeff, Linda and Eddie create an absolute positive and welcoming environment for everyone. They treat people with the highest dignity and respect – they care about your progress and they give great advice about exercise diet as well as some mental tips for how to perceive yourself. Nobody else does this.
They have been open for 9 years so they are well established and on the right track. It is a deeply inspiring story to find an independent operator doing well in this climate of big business and economic uncertainty.
Please contact me for any info.

Super Fit is located near my home and I would often drive by it on my way to work. Not knowing much about the gym or its programs I decided to call. Jeff Turner answered and responded kindly and intelligently to my skepticism and curiosity.
After a few short weeks of workouts and interactions with Jeff and the entire SuperFit team I was convinced this program was for us: my entire family. I later brought in my wife to join in the fun and, she too quickly realized the benefits.
We have been members for three years and equally seen results in the following areas:
• I have lost over 30lbs of fat while maintaining core strength and musculature.
• My wife has found a new gained energy, as she is often getting up at 3am for work. Plus, I am quite fond her tight abs!
• A true sense of community: we could not have done it without the help and caring of Jeff, Linda, Eddie and Brian. In addition, the other ‘Super-Fitters’ who work out and cheer each other on gave us a sense of community and teamwork.
It is clear that Jeff and his team take great pride in their gym, their clients and their efforts to better the physical fitness industry.
