Journeys Fitness and Wellness

Journeys Fitness and Wellness was established in July 2004 by husband and wife, Kevin Laczko and Debbie Stickney-Laczko. Debbie had already begun her own practice as a licensed massage therapist and Kevin was eager to begin serving those interested in better fitness. The “marriage” of their callings has resulted in Central Florida’s best fitness and wellness studio. We are now proudly serving our community in our brand new location on SR 434 with 4 massage therapists & 3 fitness trainers. More exciting news — we’ve upped our game by partnering with Watson Chiropractic to provide you with one-stop in-house total wellness!

The staff at Journeys is top notch; they listen to your needs and work hard to help you reach your goals

The staff at Journeys is top notch; they listen to your needs and work hard to help you reach your goals through individual attention and a great variety of workouts. I believe that the owners are not only very well trained in their respective disciplines, but also quality people, and they select all of their staff - trainers and therapists alike - very carefully based on these same principles, to ensure only the highest caliber.

The level of quality of services provided at Journeys is second to none

I have known Debbie and Kevin from the early beginnings of Journeys. Over the years I have received massage therapy from Debbie, training from Kevin and more recently from George. The level of quality of services provided at Journeys is second to none but even more important to me is the care and concern they all exhibit to their clients. You will feel like family from the time you walk in the door.

He works with a spirit of excellence that translates into positive results

Recovering from an anoxic brain injury that left me comatose, I attended traditional therapy for months to learn the basics of walking, talking....everything. Since I started training with Kevin, the one-on-one attention he has provided with his immense knowledge of body mechanics, I have experienced a tremendous increase in not only strength and toning, but also in endurance, balance and control. Not only is Kevin immensely knowledgeable in the musculature and body mechanics, but his personal commitment to the well-being and help of his clients is palpable. He works with a spirit of excellence that translates into positive results. Thanks, JFAW and Kevin!

I have been a customer of Journeys for about 10 years

I have been a customer of Journeys for about 10 years. I get massages from Debbie and have worked out with both Kevin and George. I have lower back issues and they all take special care not to aggravate my issues and in fact they strive to nurture and strengthen me. The atmosphere is caring and fun. I give them all an A+!!

This is a positive experience which I plan to continue long-term.

For the first time I can honestly say I enjoy working out and can see results. Every session is different and Kevin's ability to plan exercises which are physically challenging without being too difficult keeps me coming back. The facility is clean, the people are friendly, and overall it is a feel-good atmosphere. I thought about the financial commitment for some time but I can say now it is worth every dollar. This is a positive experience which I plan to continue long-term.

This is the best investment in my health I’ve ever made.

Kevin has been my trainer for nearly two years. The fact that I have continued this program with him speaks volumes about his skill and abilities as a trainer. I have never succeeded in maintaining a workout regimen before, and I have started many over the years. From the first day, Kevin developed at workout program that was customized to my needs, of which I had many. With each workout, Kevin is able to find the right balance between pushing me to reach new limits without pushing me too far. By the end of the hour, I always leave feeling exhausted yet fully challenged. I feel better about myself knowing that with Kevin's help and guidance I'm maintaining a good fitness routine. This is the best investment in my health I've ever made. I cannot say enough good things about my Journeys experience.

I’m now completely sold on the Journeys experience.

I have been training with Kevin for about a year. I was initially skeptical about the benefits of a personal trainer. I'm now completely sold on the Journeys experience. At age 63 I am feeling great. I have increased flexibility and stamina and have lost weight. Kevin has designed a work-out routine that is tailored to meet my needs. I leave each workout session with a more positive physical and mental outlook. I highly recommend Journeys for anyone who wants to get in shape and stay in shape."
