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:

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.

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.

Firstly gym offers assessment plans at no cost with a training plan, which is the most important step before starting the gym. Secondly, the membership includes sessions from expert private trainers, specialized classes, and nutrition classes. And lastly, it is open 24/7 and has no cancellation charges for ending a membership.

Hello ,
I can't see the opening time in the flyer Best body fitness regarding the question below:
7. The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning.
Best wishes.

Hi Momocompanyman,

In the 'It's so EASY' section, it says 'we're open 24/7, we never close'. So, the gym is open at that time.

Best wishes to you as well :)

Hi dmk.od and all,

I just wanted to explain more to try to help you see why the correct answer is true :)

These two sentences do not mean the same thing:
1. The gym OPENS at 4 o'clock.
2. The gym IS OPEN at 4 o'clock.

Sentence 1 means the gym STARTS to be open at that time. It means that before 4 o'clock, it is closed.

Sentence 2 is a state, not an action. It means that at 4 o'clock, the gym is open, not closed. But it doesn't mean that it STARTED to be open at 4 o'clock. It does not tell us what time the gym started to be open.

To put it another way, for example, if a shop OPENS at 9:00 (i.e., it starts doing business at that time), then it IS OPEN at 9:01, 9:02, 10:00 and every moment until the closing time.

So when question 7 says "The gym is open at 4 o'clock", it is indeed true (because the poster says "we're open 24/7, we never close"). The question is asking whether at that time, the gym is open or closed. It's not asking about the opening time.

I hope that helps.

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.

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 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

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 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.

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?
