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.

For me, my favorite part is all the classes, like yoga, cross training, bike and so on, because I prefer workout within a team, when everyone works together, we can encourage each other, this competition really works on me.

I don't like a gym that much. I think I was unlucky at that time. Gym trainer only care a member for the first day. Later, you can do any equipment as you like. They are not interested to train or how to use equipment. They only care a person who hire the personal trainer at that gym.

Really cool to know about other people's preferences about gyms! If I had to choose something specific from a gym to say it's a good one, it would be a specific training plan for each member. Thank you

For me what I like most about going to the gym other than gaining muscle and keeping my body healthy is it gives me the energy and motivates me to do my homework during the day, it keeps me away from laziness and procrastination.
so yeah I love going to the gym.

Hi. I have qustion about Task 1
7. The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning...
When a choose FALSE - answer wrong.
But. In the text
Easy to access – we're open 24/7, we never close. ?

Hello Kotan6,

If the gym is open '24/7', this means it is open 24 hours per day 7 days a week. This means it never closes.

Therefore the gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning, which means the correct answer is True.

Does that make sense?

All the best,
Kirk

Hi Kotan6, I thought the same as you, but the question is still correct, that is, it is open at 4 am. But I agree that it generates more than one interpretation.

Sometimes we are surprized by content as we have no idea what is talking about. In the capital city where I live, there rarely are a gym that is open like 24/7, so at the first glance, we consider it as a false sentence. Because we've already know there is no gym that is open after 12:00 PM.
It has happend to me a billion of times. :D

The best part of going to the gym is maintaining healthy myself and fitness. But, to choose a membership, I consider the treatment with the client and the equipment they have. Also, I like seeing some programs that include dancing.

I mostly like to join a program such as dancing. It is good exercise for relaxing, especially under the pressure.

The thing I like most about a gym is that I want to gain muscle in my body. Therefore, I work hand doing exercises on equipment to accomplish that goal.

I a gym I mostly like that I can work out on my own at any time. I can also switch off from my parental leave and do something good for my body. My gym is very similar to the gym described in this text. The most practical point here is that the gym is open 24/7 and they also have live courses like zumba, six pack training, yoga or pilates.

I don't like to do exercise in gym. I likes to do yoga in studio. Where I can listen to music while doing yoga and its calm me down. Yoga also cure my back pain that I had for sometimes. I think everyone should do yoga to stay healthy.

Yes, yoga is one of the best physical therapy to relieve pain, especially in the low back, neck, and shoulders, it helps to decrease muscle stiffness and improve your flexibility.
Many psychological specialists recommend doing yoga to make you relax and clear your thoughts.

I could consider 3 main points: 1. the instructor needs to be nearby because I feel confident and stimulated; 2. relation benefits and costs must be positive, and to have quality with a good price, and finally 3. it is important modern equipment.

Firstly gym offers assessment plans at no cost with a training plan, which is the most important step before starting the gym. Secondly, the membership includes sessions from expert private trainers, specialized classes, and nutrition classes. And lastly, it is open 24/7 and has no cancellation charges for ending a membership.

Hello ,
I can't see the opening time in the flyer Best body fitness regarding the question below:
7. The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning.
Best wishes.

Hi Momocompanyman,

In the 'It's so EASY' section, it says 'we're open 24/7, we never close'. So, the gym is open at that time.

Best wishes to you as well :)

Hi dmk.od and all,

I just wanted to explain more to try to help you see why the correct answer is true :)

These two sentences do not mean the same thing:
1. The gym OPENS at 4 o'clock.
2. The gym IS OPEN at 4 o'clock.

Sentence 1 means the gym STARTS to be open at that time. It means that before 4 o'clock, it is closed.

Sentence 2 is a state, not an action. It means that at 4 o'clock, the gym is open, not closed. But it doesn't mean that it STARTED to be open at 4 o'clock. It does not tell us what time the gym started to be open.

To put it another way, for example, if a shop OPENS at 9:00 (i.e., it starts doing business at that time), then it IS OPEN at 9:01, 9:02, 10:00 and every moment until the closing time.

So when question 7 says "The gym is open at 4 o'clock", it is indeed true (because the poster says "we're open 24/7, we never close"). The question is asking whether at that time, the gym is open or closed. It's not asking about the opening time.

I hope that helps.
