Best Body Fitness

About us

You don't want just a gym membership. You want a membership that means something. And that means you need support, expert help and a community.

Best Body Fitness isn't just a gym: it's a full-service fitness membership made for you.

Here's how it works:

STEP ONE: Your assessment

We begin with an assessment session. This is a chance for you to see what we do at Best Body. Our assessment plans are no-cost and no-risk. We'll also make a training plan specifically for you.

STEP TWO: Your training

When you decide to become a Best Body member, we show you what to do, how to do it and why you are doing it. After a few sessions with an expert private trainer you will feel comfortable working out on your own. But don't worry, we'll always be nearby if you have questions.

STEP THREE: Your membership

Membership works on a month-to-month basis. There are no sign-up fees and no cancellation fees. Start and stop whenever you want. And the best part? Our fees are the most competitive in the whole downtown area.

STEP FOUR: Your community

At Best Body Fitness, we see everyone as part of a big team. And when you work with a team, you can do great things. Join any of our specialised classes, led by expert instructors. Come to our nutrition classes. Participate in our regular social events. Everything is included in your fee.

Finally, we wanted to share with you some reasons why our members say that they have chosen us over any other fitness centre in the city.

The most I like at the gym is leg machines and exercise. As a volleyball player jumping is so important and obviously these parts of the body need training. Once you start to see the result, you consider the effort are worth.

Let's me ask a question because you told you were lazy. At the task 1, I don't know why no.7 is True. I can't find any information in the text to realize that the gym open from 4 o'clock.

Hello uncle choi,

I hope no-one has told you that you are lazy!


The questions does not say that the gym is open from 4, but is open at 4.

In the text it states that the gym is open 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week), which means that it never closes. Therefore it must be open at 4.

I am a house wife. I am also full time worker. So, I did not have time to go to the gym. However, if I feel tired and stress, I do some yoga exercise. On the other hand, I have a small garden with nearly a hundred of rose and orchid plants. I am always busy but feel cool for gardening. After I retire from work, I want to go to the gym.

Submitted by Marilyncc on Thu, 01/07/2021 - 03:37

I would like most in the gym is the quick disponibility of the equipments as I wouldn't stay long wait to get one. Another important thing is the leading by an expert in order not to get lost

Submitted by GiulianaAndy on Sat, 19/06/2021 - 19:46

Submitted by AnnaWhi on Thu, 27/05/2021 - 17:16

I tried a year ago to go to the gym. I picked the one that was near my dormitory. I visited it only 6 or 8 times over the month. I was a little bit anxious about exercising with other people, so I visited it only when I was with a friend. I want to go to the gym in the future and exercise with a help of an instructor. but for now I need to find a job to pay for it

Submitted by Homam21 on Tue, 25/05/2021 - 10:58

Actually, I prefer to do outdoor exercises. I feel bored at the gym, so I go walking every evening.

I don't need to go to gym because I am healthy and strong. I work exercise in home. In this time I am stay in home because of covid. All shops, malls, gyms are closed except essential commodities.

Submitted by Paula Bermúdez… on Thu, 15/04/2021 - 00:58

I haven't ever been to a gym, however, I consider that these places help us to learn how to do a correct workout and they motivate us to get our goals. Also, the gym has a lot of machines and that's incredible because we can't find these tools in our houses.

İnsipite of the fact, I was not go to the gym, I loss a lot of wait. But my body needed to still some shape and I went to plates . it's been years and I am still fit. I owned pilates and healty foods.

Submitted by Aliya848 on Fri, 02/04/2021 - 14:28

I went to the gym a few years ago. I was fat and I wanted to lose weight. I did sport with instructor and she controlled my success. She teached me to do exercices. In my opinion gym takes confidence to the people. That's why I love gym. Now I do sport at home but my confidence still with me.

Submitted by Mathew on Mon, 29/03/2021 - 14:48

Well, I think I would like an instructor who's really kind and not too strict. For example, one who doesn't push me too hard until at a point where I can't take it any longer.

Submitted by Frank Cuello on Wed, 24/03/2021 - 21:14

The most valuable thing for me in a gym are good instructors. When you receive positive feedback and orientation in your training, it gives you motivation to come again at the gym.

Submitted by In on Sun, 14/03/2021 - 08:06

I don`t like gyms at all. I prefer to do outdoor exercise, but if I don't have another option I prefer the classes of pilates, cardio, spinning, etc.

I would like to have a good instructor in the gym who will always motivate me to achieve my goal.

Hi Eman Abobakr,

Compare these two sentences. They have different meanings.

  1. The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning.
  2. The gym opens at 4 o'clock in the morning.

Sentence 1 means that at 4 o'clock, the gym is open, i.e. it has the state of being open (not closed). It doesn't mean that the gym started to be open at 4 o'clock.

Sentence 2 means the action of opening the gym, i.e. the gym starts to be open (for example, they open the doors, and the gym users can enter. Sentence 1 doesn't mean that).

So, sentence 1 is true because the gym is open 24/7, as you pointed out. (But, sentence 2 would be false.)

Does that make sense?

I prefer work out by myself. I will run on treadmill for about 20~30mins and then I will follow some Youtuber or fitness app instructions to take exercise. Gym in-classes do very well but they normally in early morning. I don't have time to take those classes.

Submitted by Andrea Valencia on Tue, 26/01/2021 - 00:10

I would like a big gym that has a lot of equipments, I would like a training class with a expert instructor. I like meeting people there.

Submitted by signalrot on Thu, 21/01/2021 - 12:58

What I like about this gym is that the membership works on a month-to-month basis, with no sign-up or cancellation fees. It's always nice to have the option to work out at any time. It is useful to start with an assessment session to create a personal training plan. I would most like a varied workout because I think it would be less boring. That would fit very well with my personal habits.

I want to nearby my house like my friends.One of the important things I think employees should be careful about hygen.Especially todays,on pandemic days it's super important.Except those, ı prefer gym which has quality sport equipments.For instance running band,ropes for jump,boxing bag etc. And I always pay attention to showers.Showers must be clean.

Submitted by Asni on Thu, 14/01/2021 - 23:56

First of all, I'd like it to be near my house. Then, I'll expect it to be hygienic and fully equipped. Afterwards, I'll look at the fees and I'd definitely prefer a membership with no cancellation fees and no annual engagement, so that I can stop whenever it is convenient for me without worrying about the consequences.

A lot of things I like in the gym specially daily fitness classes , the advanced equipment's and swimming pool.

Honestly, I prefer doing workouts at home, when nobody sees me. This way is more suitable for me than visiting a gym .
