"At Sisters, we can always count on our instructor to brighten our lunch hour!  Her upbeat and motivating personality, along with offering a variety of classes, keeps our workouts challenging and fun!  While there are no misters at Sisters, we have made a lot of friends and we wouldn't want it any other way.  WE LOVE SISTERS!"

"My first opportunity to visit Sisters Health Club was last year, probably in May or early June. I met with Kristy Butterfield to see if she would be interested in working with me to be able to run a 5K in October, 2013.  Kristy and I visited at length about the commitment I would need to make and what would be expected of me.  We worked out a plan to meet 3 days a week beginning in early August.  I used Sisters Health Club facilities during my training sessions with Kristy.  The staff was very supportive in my efforts as well as the members I would meet at the mirror when we were finished with workouts and all trying to get ready for work!
 
I can’t say enough about the facilities, the staff, and the members – all are TERRIFIC!  After training with Kristy for a little over 2 months, I joined the club after completing my first 5K as a runner.  I would not have been able to meet my goal of running a 5K without the support of Kristy Butterfield, the staff at Sisters and the use of the facilities there.
 
I enjoy the variety of classes provided, the various times, and a facility that offers so much more than exercise.  Sister’s Health Club is about total fitness, mind, body, and spirit!  I love the fact this is a club for women only; you are so much more at ease – no gawking guys!  LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!"
                                                                                                           ~Cindy Young

'I really enjoy the staff.  They care about you as a person.  You are not just another member.  The classes are varied for all levels of exercise and you get support from the other members.  I do like it is for women only.  It is a real comfortable place to come.  I can come tired or not feeling the best but leave feeling good, ready for the day."
                                                                                                           ~Dian Boysen

"A great variety of classes and exercise equipment, support from staff and members combine to make it a sisterly atmosphere.  Where else can you go to laugh and have fun while you exercise? Convenient location with more than adequate parking.Sisters creates a caring, fun place where women can go to exercise, make friends, and help relieve life's stresses.Sisters accommodates women of all ages and varying exercise abilities."
                                                                                                            ~Dottie Kresnicka

"I love coming to Sister’s for a variety of reasons!  Most likely the biggest factor is that it is women only; because it is a small gym I always feel at ease when I walk through the door. The staff are knowledgeable about the equipment and always willing to show you something new.  The classes are challenging but you are always encouraged to listen to your body and work at your own pace….  I’m so much healthier now than I was five years ago when I walked through the door for the first time..."
                                                                                                           ~JoAnn Dobbin
