Gerry Hempstead celebrates six years of building strength at 20 Minutes to Fitness.

This is Gerry. You’ll find him photographed at various spots on the 20 Minutes to Fitness website.

Gerry — like everyone you’ll see on our website and in our ads — is a real person, not some fancy fitness model. We tell the stories of real people because 20 Minutes to Fitness delivers real results. And all it takes is working out once a week for 20 minutes.

We know it sounds too good to be true. But this is one case where it is not. Here you’ll train safely on physical therapy equipment under the direct supervision of a personal coach who handles all the details and makes sure you use proper form. We’re not saying it is easy. But it is efficient, effective and fun. It helps your mind and body feel better. Don’t believe us?

Just ask Gerry.
