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.

One thing I like to do the most at the gym is running on the treadmill by listening to music without thinking anything. I feel like it's the best way to forget the stress out of our life. Another thing I like to do is that I use the steam room after doing exercise to get health better. Well, I enjoy spending my time at the gym.

For no.7 of test 1, it showed that "true" is the right answer. I am not sure that gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning, I thought that the right answer is the " false" because in the context it said that gym opened for 24/7. Please explain me a little bit to be sure.

Hello MgKanKaung,

The answer is True' here as the gym is open 24/7. It's open at 3.00am, at 4.00am, at 5.00am etc. It never closes so it is open all day.

 

I think you're getting two different forms confused here:

1. It's open means you can use it; it is not closed. [it is open - open is an adjective]

2. It opens means it starts functioning. For example, the restaurant is closed all afternoon. It opens at 7.00pm. [it opens - open is a verb]

Ohh, thank you so much, appreciate for your explanations, I got the point, yesterday I looked recklessly the usage so I got the wrong idea.

i'm so sorry i'm not understand.
"The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning." I can't find any information about this. Why this sentence true?

Hello Thachnglk,

On the flyer it says that the gym is open non-stop:

Easy to access – we're open 24/7, we never close

Since the gym never closes, it must be open at 4 o'clock.

Actually, I usually do exercises at home instead of going to the gym. And the thing I like the most is the feeling after working out. It's really relax and comfortable. It makes me feel I forgot all bad things in the life.

Mostly, in a gym I like a punching bag. I'm interested in boxing and this kind of sport makes feel me unusual and encouraged. It helps me to go out of my sad mood, which I have because of breaking-up with my close friend. I express all my rage or sad feelings in strong punches. As for me, it is the best remedy for person, who has a difficult period of life. Do sports, and you will feel better.

Any gyms always have expensive cost that is not suitable for students as me. I can do the exercises at home by myself. However, I don't have fitness plans there are suitable for me. I don't have any experts and morden equipments.Somtimes i feel a little but lazy so i can skip that day for exercise. That means when memberships don't beside me.
