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 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.
Honestly, I prefer doing workouts at home, when nobody sees me. This way is more suitable for me than visiting a gym .
I never go to the gym.But I would like to go to the gym.Because when I do exercise at the home,it's right or wrong I don't know.And there's no one to correct the mistake. At the gym,it has trainer & lots of equipment.
At the last few years, I most like the Yoga lessons since it works on our body and soul. I like the breathing exercises which help me be calm and focused. The physical exercise helps me be healthy and strong.
you can do exercises while make friends in the gym,this is what i like the most
Hi, I would like to ask why the gym is opened at 4 o'clock?. Please, kindly reply me:).
Thanks for your response. Yes, I know it is never closed. But in task 1, the question is "the gym is opened at 4 o'clock in the morning" and the answer is true. I think the gym is never closed right? Why the gym is opened at 4 o'clock, I'm confused.;)

Hello Harrison,

I think the reason you are confused is that you are mixing up two different concepts: being open (it is open) and opening (it opens).

 

The gym is open at... means you can use it; it is not closed.

The gym opens at... means someone unlocks the door and allows customers to enter.

I have done physical exercises only at homefor about two years.I'm doing work out with Tfitness application during covid-19 pandemic.It is so convenient to work out.
I started doing sport regularly since I came to Germany. But it´s not possible anymore now because of Covid-19. Every gym has to be closed. But I don´t give up the sport, though. Now I´ve been doing sport at home since that. It´s not like at the gym. But it helps to keep me fit.
If I have a chance,I would like to fit my body and health with your Body Fitness Center.
I think it very important to exercise. A perfect plan for your healthy is you should become gymer
I think is very important do exercise, a good plan y a good gym meke me happy.
I'd like a 24/7 gym. Also, I'd like it to be clean and also has air conditioning. It's good to have a parking lot around the gym. In addition, I'd like it has an expert trainer, lots of equipment and a buffet equipped for times after a good workout.
i like to practise with almost of equitments in a gym. It is easy to try and i can control them by myself. No need any guidance.
If I were to be a member of Best Body Fitness I would appreciate all offered flexible options. The most valuable I find that they have enough equipment to avoid a long wait during the session. That's crucial to stay warmed-up, at first to avoid sports injury, at second to get the noticeable outcome.
What I like most in a gym is being able to exercise and socialize with people.
What is the answer of Task-1, Question No. 7? It should be false. Am I right? As the flyer says, 'Easy to access – we're open 24/7, we never close'.

Hello Raya,

The correct answer is 'True'. The gym is open 24/7, as you say, which means it is always open. Therefore it is true that it is open at 4.00 in the morning.

Lol, I made the same mistake, because I read it to fast and didn't pay attention about the subtlety ;)
On one hand, what I would like in a gym would be that the machines are free to be used anytime. A big part of gyms are crowded at certain hours and that causes you waste a lot of time. On the other hand, I think it´s important that the gym have a good organized activities programme led by an instructor. These kind of activities give you the opportunity to enjoy making sport and also meet people.
I like to do weight training most. Since the pandemic started, I try to workout everyday for my health.
I remember about 10 month ago I went to gym and exercised as well as Upper intermediate body-builder and I had a great days when i went to the gym after that one day i heard that this COVID-19 monster cause a very extreme breath disaster and disability than can kill people. after this sad news gyms,restaurants,clubs etc. are being closing from 10 month ago to now. i hope this corona virus don't cause of anybody death and disappear very fast. god bless people , nurses and doctors who try to save so many lives all over the world. take after you and your family every body. peace.
So, I haven't gone to the gym for more than five years. But when I used to go there I've enjoyed it because I was shaping my body and it was always rewarding after work out. After read this text, I was wondering to join on community gym after the Covid-19 quarantine. But it hasn't finished yet.
i tried so exercises and sports and gym but i have interested in two sport it is swimming and running i think both of them are complement and they cause a full fitness body
I consider that the instructor is one of the most important things that must be present, also the rhythm of the exercise. I don´t go to the gym, but I can say that it is something very complete, it relaxes your mind and helps your physical condition.
I am not very good at exercise so I would like someone to instruct me the first weeks. I would like you to have a good payment plan and kind attention.
I don't go to a gym since I exercise at home, but something I would like about one would be the treadmills and the space they have for any routine.
