We’ve been working with Dan Forcier of Powerhouse Gym in Gaylord, Michigan for a little over 6 months now. We redesigned GaylordsGym.com and provided search engine marketing and it is now the top ranking website for the terms “gym gaylord mi” and “fitness gaylord mi” in Google. Their traffic continues to rise each month and they are taking advantage of it by offering a “lowest price guarantee.”
We asked Dan to send over a small testimonial for our website but when we received it, determined it deserved it’s own post, so here it is:

To Whom This May Concern:
I am absolutely delighted with the graphical design, website build and technical support provided by Harmonie of Ponder Consulting and Web Design. Harmonie has made a great effort to really understand our needs in terms of both look-and-feel and functionality. She is always ready to advise on design improvements, and review regularly the optimization criteria, and suggest effective measures that have maintained continuous viewing on the principal search engines.
I wanted to take our Powerhouse Gym from “Good” to “Great”. It had to start with customer service. To provide a level of service that would be “great” meant getting gym information out to our members and the public in a professional and expeditious manner. I feel our website is the only tool that can do just that!
I am very proud to say “please visit our website all the information is at your finger tips!”
Thus on a business level I am extremely happy with the service, and it’s also great that Harmonie is equally satisfying to work with on a personal level! The end result exceeds my expectations – and is great value for money. The Powerhouse Gym is going from “Good” to “Great” with Ponder Consulting’s help. Thank you for a job well done!
Thank you Dan, and the feeling is mutual.
Since I designed the website, I have also become a member of Powerhouse Gym. It is one the cleanest and well maintained gyms I’ve frequented and the equipment is state-of-the-art. If you live in the area and are looking for a fitness center, then stop into Powerhouse and tell them you read about it on Ponder Consulting’s website: you never know, you could get a free day pass!
