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.

What I like most about a gym is that it offers people convenient terms for working out in any weather condition for a reasonable fee.

The gym should open 24/7. It's have a good instructor. Not wait in the gym. Have nutrition plan.

I would prefer 24/7 gyms because I can access it any time! And I'll not be thinking that there is a closing time and I'm in a hurry to finish my studies and go the gym.

What do you like most about a gym? I love the gym atmosphere, but what I like the most is the post-workout feel.
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.
Thanks. I understand. At first, I misunderstood that sentence means the gym' opening time. Thanks for your kind answer.
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.
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
I would like most in a gym the equipment that it has, and also the dance room I wish I could danced well, but is for that reason I would like the dance room of the gym. If I learn how to dance I will be glad.
Actually,I have not been to gym.So I don't know anything. But I knew about gym because of you.I wanna go to the gym at least one time ome day.
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
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.
Two month ago I was visiting gym for 3 month. I lost 5 kg, and became stronger, I work like workout in gym, you know? Work with my weight, pull-up, push-up etc.
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.
I was only for one day but i think enjoy more make my workout in my home, because i feel more comfortable
I went to gym once. I had a lot of weight . I worked with the special instructer but it did not help. I decided to go a dietitian. I was very satisfied by the result. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 would like most is nutrition class because I need to know more about how I can eat healthy and to maintain the loss of weight I get .
I would most like an assessment session in a gym with an expert fitness instructor. Through an expert instructor I can improve my body health and fitness.
I like the most in a gym is the space to do exersice and the posibility of do many exercises.
I prefer to practise in a gym with great facilities like pool, fitness equipment, football field .etc. So I think the best way for absorb people to the gym is images that show this facilities.
What i like the most in a gym is that i get motivated when i see people around working out and the activities i enjoy the most are weightlifting, zumba and yoga classes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am not usual at gym but I always do exercise on treadmill whenever I go. It is more beneficial than any other means of exercise. It increases my stamina.
This gym has big offer; facilities, comfort paying and several exercise plans. What attracts me is really the space they have, with short time waiting for using equipments.
