"I love how Ray took time to give me a workout that would work for me. I also loved talking to Hilary that spent a half hour with me to explain a women's workout. They both encouraged me to be fit and determination. It's been a while since I was in a gym it made me feel loved. I feel I have a new family even if I was a newbie again!" Chrissy C.


"Wow. Great gym. It had all the equipment I needed for an excellent workout.

I wanted to use a stationary bike, and I used a spin-class type bike that was much better than the bike I use at my fancy east coast club in Washington.

Don't be fooled by the exterior of the building, which is an old school. The gym inside is excellent and the equipment is clean and well maintained.

Next time I visit the area, I will be coming back to Rays for sure. If I lived in the area, this would definitely be my regular gym.

One last point: when I called to inquire about the gym, I spoke to Ray personally. He was professional and friendly --- exactly what you would expect from a nice small Midwestern town.

Great experience all around." NORVILLE R., Washigton D.C.

"I absolutely love Ray's Gym, it's so good for me mentally and physically and it is a very comfortable gym."Sharon W.

"The level of service at Ray's Gym is fantastic. As a member of another gym in Ohio I am consistently impressed by the professionalism of everyone I have come in contact with at Ray's Gym. I also love the friendly down to earth atmosphere of Ray's Gym. They all make you feel right at home. Thank you!" Pat B.

"In this day and age, it’s hard to find a fitness club you can trust. Ray's Gym was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of training I receive from Ray is outstanding, not to mention the wide variety of fitness equipment and the size of the facility. I no longer feel cramped or have to wait to use the equipment as I did at the other gym in town. But even more, Ray has personally helped me lose over 60 pounds, keep up the good work!" Theresa H.

"I hired Ray as my personal trainer over 4 years ago while he worked at another gym. After Ray decided to leave and start his own gym, I was the first member to sign up. Ray is a total professional as a trainer, fitness club manager and owner. You can't find anyone with Ray's experience and knowledge of fitness in northeastern Michigan. I can't imagine going any place else." Kellee R.

Hi Ray,

"Just wanted to send you the pictures from my shoot. I'm too embarrassed to send you my before pictures. Thanks to your training and nutrition tips, I've gone from a size 8 to a double zero, but you're still the "Devil!"

Love you, Kelsey S.
