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.

It's so EASY

  • Easy to start, stop, cancel or refund a membership
  • Easy to access – we're open 24/7, we never close
  • Easy to do exercise – we have lots of equipment, no long wait

I haven't been doing any decent exercise for about a year, so maybe I should become a Best Body member.I have never been to the gym but they will teach from scratch and always be nearby if I have questions so, I don't have to worry. However, it's lonely to go alone so I have to find someone to go with me. I hope to be able to find someone as soon as possible. I'm looking forward to changing my body to best body. I will make a lot of friends, work hard together, and do my best for my health.

I guess this task does not work properly and I cannot see anything in the part of "Reading text" except for a picture.

Hello Anatoliy,

Thanks for flagging this problem. I think we have fixed it now so the page should be working properly. Please let us know if you have any further problems.

I have attended only two months at a gym. But I was not satisfied with them. In the my first visit, they said that like this passage's definitions. But the truths I faced wasn't such as their sayings. There was at all any park zone, there was only sometimes a instructor in the gym. There was no human to show your traninig or to ask any questions. So, finally I don't believe like this flyers. They are generally interested with money.

My wife and I go to a gym three times per week and I can say that it is perfect opportunity for our mind to refocus our attention on something more relaxing and funny, moreover, it is absolutely great for our health. That is the main point what I like in a gym.

Hi Guys, In my opinion, the gym is a good idea in places where the weather is rainy, windy and cold. In this case I prefer to stay indoor and exercice through the wage range of actvities that a gym offers. In places when the weather is good, I would rather enjoy in open spaces, runnig hiking and walking around and exercice with natural resources. Regards

Hi, I have one ask. Task 1, question 7: "The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning." it's a false, why this answer is wrong?

Hello Justy

The flyer says 'Easy to access – we're open 24/7, we never close'. Therefore, it's true that the gym is open at 4 a.m.

Does that make sense?

I have lost my trust some how on the tasks! Task 1, question 1: The first visit to the club is free. (It doesn't exist in the text) Question 2: Everybody gets the same training plan. (It should be true)

Hello Zabihullah

I'm sorry you lost your trust! I hope it is restored with these explanations:

Under Step One, it says the first step is a visit for an assessment session, which is no-cost. That means it is free.

In Step One it also mentions that everyone will get a personalised training plan -- this is why question two is false.

All the best

I think it's the perfect gym. I would like to have it because it's difficult to find a gym with someone who determine and follow a specific plan. And it's too expensive to have a personal coach. It's a good compromise if, as said in the flyer, fees are not expensive. However, i think that it's would be difficult for the gym to include all these adva tages at this price.

Well, i like the most in gym is the facility of fitness equipment, professional trainer and a team environment. a lot of fitness equipment helps us to make our body fit as per our need. a gym instructor guides us about the equipment uses. how to use, when to use, and for how much time we need to use. doing exercise with other gym members motivates us to get desired result. when we are a part of team we are much more able to make it consistent and get results.

I love the idea that ​​gyms are offering these days, the "spirit of comunnity" is wonderfull. When I was Young I loved spent time doing my boxe classes and discovery new friends also creat bonds with them. Actually, I rarely do exercise in my dayly routine, my work is now consuming all my energy and all the gyms is far away from my homw. I hope some day get back on track and start doing again exercices.

I think, many people would like the idea of this gym. I think it is important to have an instructor at the beginning, who explains what to do. I can imagine that many people also like the idea of the opportunity to exercise any time they want to (day or night). The fee seems to include many offers. I am a sportive person, but I do not really like doing fitness in gyms. I prefer doing sport outside (running, biking) or practicing Yoga at home. But for people who like to do sport in a gym, this description sounds like a good place.
