Get In Shape for Women – Lose weight and get fit with proven model

January 18th, 2017

Toni Parr, the owner of the Get In Shape for Women (GISFW) studio in Westborough understands that frustration – she, too, is a working mother. But Parr doesn’t just talk the talk. Recently, over approximately six-month period, she became her studio’s best advertisement when she lost 40 pounds by carefully following the GISFW model.

Shrewsbury – For years, Anthony “Spag” Borgatti oversaw his legendary retail establishment located on Route 9, not far from Lake Quinsigamond and the Worcester border. Known for his great deals as well as his dedication to Shrewsbury and its residents, Borgatti was beloved by all and to this day, casts a very long shadow.

But after in the years following his death, the once bustling commercial site saw a series of retailers come and go, each hoping for just a small slice of Spag’s success. Sadly, during recent years, the nearly 23 acre parcel sat dormant, waiting for its next chapter.
