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.

I would like the gym to be well equipped. It means that the gym has a good variety of equipments enough for members to use without too much waiting. All machines are maintained very well and can be upgraded as needed. It also means there are different types of group classes for members with different interests; the instructors are professional and friendly.

Let me ask to clear my understanding. According to flyer, the gym opens 24/7 and they never close.
In the Task1, Question No.7 "The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning."
I though this sentence is "False" because the gym open 24/7.
But the correct answer is "True".
So, please help me to understand the meaning of the sentence. Thank you.

Hello AlexKhaing,

'24/7' means the gym is open 24 hours a day, every day (7 days) of the week. As you say, it never closes.

Therefore it is open at 4 a.m., which means the correct answer is 'True'.

Does that make sense?

All the best,
Kirk

Hi,
I got the same question wrong, but then I realized that "is open" is a state, meaning the gym is operating. If the sentence says "The gym opens at 4 o'clock in the morning", it would be wrong because "opens" is an action, meaning the gym business starts to operate at 4 o'clock.
My two cents.

I would like the social relationships with other persons doing exercise or the chats with the regulars In the gym, although I think it’s important to do physical exercise regularly and have good nutrition habits, I don’t think the best way to achieve a good fitness is going to a gym, instead of that, I think
we can adopt daily habits like going to work riding a bike or walk to the supermarket and those whom might have one can take care of their gardens by themselves or clean their own houses, most people in my country hire someone else to do those tasks and then spend time in a gym to do exercise.

Thanks for the lesson.
Great site!

I need more than one thing in a gym, in fact but the most important ones to me are the support, expert help and a community.
