Our first priority is your overall health. Health is generally defined as the absence of disease. We don’t subscribe to that definition. We like the definition of health that uses quantifiable terms of increased work capacity across broad time, modal, and age domains. Put simply, health is one’s ability to optimize his or her potential - whether physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically or sociologically.
We believe fitness and nutrition are the foundations to health.
We subscribe to the definition of fitness propounded by Greg Glassman as one’s ability to move large loads, long distances, quickly, in the broadest variety of domains. The ability to sustain that fitness throughout your life is the single most defining measure of health. We have found that fitness is directly correlative to health- that the fitter a person is, the healthier that person is, again not just physically, but in his/her life in general.
Nutrition and diet are keys to fueling the body towards fitness. Nothing is more important to your well-being, health, and body composition than good nutrition. Eating the right foods helps you lose body fat, build and maintain muscle, and reach your athletic potential. Good nutrition is a critical part of any fitness routine. Because of this, and unlike many other gyms, we provide a nutritional review to all of our new members and have an open door policy for all of our members to discuss proper diet and nutrition with us at any time.
