Downtown Hamilton’s “Best Kept Secret”!! WHAAAAAAAAT?

So, I was giving a potential member a tour the other day, and, upon walking in to our fitness centre, and looking at all of the classes we have available, she remarked “I had no idea this facility was here.  You are downtown Hamilton’s best kept secret!”  To which I remarked—–“we don’t want to be a secret-we rock and everyone in Hamilton should know it!” We had a good laugh together, but now its time to spread the word!!!  We are located at 75 Macnab Street South (right across the street from Whitehern).  And what’s here for women looking to “get moving”??

Well, we have a full fitness centre of cardio machines and weight equipment, and free weights, stability balls, gliders, ropeless jump ropes (yes you read that right!)……

What else do we have?  A pool with a variety of classes and length swims to be enjoyed…….

Any other classes you ask?? Absolutely! Its all included in your FITPass membership-Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, HIIT, Tabata, Nordic Walking, to name just a few.

Also INCLUDED in your membership is a personal program appointment to help you get started-yes you read that right too-that’s included.

And all of these options are provided by fully-certified, continuously educated instructors and personal trainers!

Excited yet? Come in and ask for a FREE one week pass-tell them you read Deanna’s Blog article!

See you soon!
