Goals Fitness Boot Camp Rocks! Kasey is easy to get although with and pushes you to achieve maximum results. Anyone who wants to get in shape needs to give Goals boot camp a try. The fact that free sessions are offered regularly is a no brainer to try it out. Goals is for sure where it's at!!

Goals is the best...They really do make fitness fun. Kasey taught me the power of one good habit...get up early and work out...and it changed my fitness forever.

Goals Fit... Is there any other??
DrTed January 12, 2012 at 03:19 AM
Goals Quick Fix Bootcamp has completely taken over Roxborough - and for good reason! Full-body, kick-butt workout taught by REALLY FIT and DEDICATED athletes... funny - we run by "row zone" during class and never really see anyone there...
Laura Boylan January 12, 2012 at 03:55 AM
GOALS bootcamp is awesome!
John Belanger January 12, 2012 at 02:27 PM
Dr Ted funny you mention that....... I'm the owner/operator of RowZone Manayunk. I live in Manayunk and I have run with Bryn Mawr running, biked with Cadence......never heard of Goals. But we like to partner with people in the area......good people working hard to get people in better shape.
John Belanger January 12, 2012 at 02:36 PM
RowZone Manayunk is an awesome training facility. We have great instructors that are either college rowers, high school or college coaches that have rowed at the "elite" level. As a former rower and Ironman Triathlete.......we focus on developing all levels fitness. check us out we have an absolutely awesome coaching staff and dedicated clients.

Awesome Job Kasey. Sounds like we have some passionate folks working out. I am a very competitive person but, I'm no "elite" level athlete and I checked out your website.......looks like great stuff. Several of our instructors have competed at the world level as rowers and have tried to make the Olmypics. some of our best instuctors were just college rowers we really care about attitude.......its all about setting goals and working hard. good luck.......feel free to stop into RZ anytime. John
Kasey Manwaring January 12, 2012 at 05:02 PM
Thanks John! Will do- Your place looks awesome! Look forward to meeting you !
DrTed January 12, 2012 at 07:36 PM
yeah - I'm not doubting it's a great workout - I just thought it was odd that 100+ votes suddenly showed up on the "non-scientific" poll...
SUEZQ January 12, 2012 at 08:07 PM
GOALS FIT! Perfect for anyone at any fitness level from beginner to elite they make working out FUN!
Adrienne January 12, 2012 at 09:48 PM
I voted for GOALS!!!! Kasey's workouts are always new and challenging while keeping it fun!! I wouldn't train anywhere else!!!
John Belanger January 12, 2012 at 10:09 PM
Very Suspicious......based on our membership #s and Facebook "likes" I figured we would be at 200+ by now.......hopefully we'll see a surge tomorrow before it ends. ....my wife and I bought this studio 6 months ago and we have worked really hard to get awesome instructors and we are beginning to see the progress.....we post our daily workouts on FB daily check it out @ http://www.facebook.com/RZMYK
John Belanger January 12, 2012 at 10:42 PM
I am really jealous of all that space.......looks like all you need is a couple of rowing machines :-) We set up a great circuit one time.....we moved all the rowers but two and we had an 8 station circuit......lots of fun.
Christena January 13, 2012 at 03:21 PM
Goals for sure! And hotbox is awesome too!
JustinF January 13, 2012 at 03:52 PM
