Fitness 19 was launched in Seattle 15 years ago as an alternative to traditional health clubs with a simple, yet radical fitness club concept: family-friendly facilities that offer state-of-the-art cardio, strength and
free weight equipment without the hassle of long-term contracts. The
company has grown its budget conscious business model opening 150 fitness clubs across the country.
“We know that today’s potential and existing club members prefer the month-to-month option over the long-term commitment associated with a one-, two- or three-year contracts,” said Nick Wainscott, manager of Fitness 19 in Westerville. “At Fitness 19, we only offer month-to-month memberships. No one is locked into a hefty commitment.” Month-to-month memberships start at an attractive price. The monthly fee never increases and individuals can cancel at anytime.
“That’s an important incentive for new members especially in this economy,” Wainscott said. “People are just as interested today in elevating their fitness level and healthy living as they have been for years, but they need membership rates that fit into their budget and knowing that they can cancel the membership at any time is comforting.”
Fitness 19 is focused on offering more value than most other gyms in terms of quality and convenience. Wainscott said each of its fitness centers is stocked with world class equipment from leading manufacturers like Life Fitness and Hammer Strength. The gyms include Mega Cardio Centers that feature more than 50 pieces of high-quality treadmills, stair climbers, row machines, lifecycles and elliptical trainers – all with advanced ergonomics, easy-to-use consoles and sophisticated heart rate monitoring.
New members are treated with a fitness evaluation from a Certified Personal Trainer on staff. The Fitness 19 gyms are also built to support active, happy families. That begins with locating the facilities in the heart of each of the communities it serves. The Westerville facility is situated in Westerville Plaza at the corner of Schrock Road and State Route 3, next to Kroger.
“Our gyms are strategically located close to people’s homes and near where they shop and eat, so that going to the gym is not a big hassle,” Wainscott said. “It’s just part of their day.”
In addition, each Fitness 19 site has a kid’s room, where children six months to 12 years can play and socialize in a supervised atmosphere while their parents’ exercise. Children 12 and older are encouraged to workout alongside their parents. Fitness 19 in Westerville also offers unlimited classes. Classes that are offered include: Zumba, Yoga, Boot Camp, Hip Hop, Silver Movers, and many more.
