Introducing the brand new, first of its kind, Zone Fitness Club, located at 1252 Seven Springs Boulevard where everyone gets results. Why? I’ll cut to the chase because I have a feeling that you think you’ve heard it all before. Guess what, this is different. This is awesome. This is science! This is a fitness club for everyone, whether you’ve never worked out before, or you’ve been an athlete your whole life. So you’re thinking, how can one fitness club claim to be for everyone and yet give everyone unique results? That’s the science of Zone Fitness. Then, what if I mentioned that there aren’t any contracts to sign? No long-term obligations? Okay, so you’d be interested, right? What if I told you that the cost was only $15 per month? I’ll tell you what I’m doing, I’m signing up!

I’m going to preface this story by saying that for years I was one of those people who wrote “LOSE WEIGHT” and “GET IN SHAPE” at the top of my New Year’s Resolution list. I talked about it. I complained about it. I suffered. I had given up. I was never going to be “cute” or “in shape” again. Those days were “over” for me. I’d hear myself saying, “If you see me running, you better run too,” and I’d laugh louder than anyone around me so that I wouldn’t show my embarrassment. Then I’d say, “Oh, I’d work out, but my back, neck etc…” I even had a sign in my kitchen that said, “There’s a skinny girl inside me, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!”

Then a very close friend said something to me that really changed my life. She said, “When you’re ready, you will. That’s it. You have to decide to make a change. It won’t be overnight, but it will happen if you decide to value yourself as much as you value everyone else.” She was right.

That was almost 50 pounds ago. Right now, I’m in better shape than I was when I got married. Was it easy? No. Was it instant? No. It took time and dedication, and a little sacrifice, but I did it. Guess what? If I can do it, you can do it! And with a place like Zone Fitness Club in your arsenal, you are literally guaranteed results. So, am I done? No way, you know what I’m going to do next? I’m joining Zone Fitness Club!

I’ll tell you why: It’s affordable, it’s convenient, and most importantly, it’s the first club of its kind to put me into a personal zone of fitness. I’m not talking about just chatting about my body mass index with some sweaty guy in a tank top and filling out a survey. I’m talking about a fitness club that offers the ability to monitor my heart rate, my fitness levels and to even help me challenge myself within my zone, so that I’m not comparing my workout with anyone else’s! Why? Their zone is going to be completely different from mine, and when I’m in my zone, I know I’ll be seeing results, because it means that my body will be working out at just the right amount for my own goals. That means I won’t burn out, and I won’t give up! That’s why they can guarantee results. Your zone is for you and for you only, and the club is designed to facilitate you at every level. If you want to work independently- you’ve got it. If you love the motivation that a class gives you, you can do that! So you, yes - you, will lose weight, get in better shape, flatten that tummy, tone those arms and feel better inside and out when you join the new Zone Fitness Club.

The Details:

The Zone Fitness Club has over 42 pieces of state-of-the-art cardio equipment, as well as free weights, TRX Training equipment, abdominal equipment, and the club functions a lot like a cross-fit circuit. There’s really something for everyone, and you don’t have to live there to see results!

Zone Fitness Club is privately owned and operated, and staffed by people who are specifically trained in fitness, so that everyone on the staff can help you achieve your goals and offer a level of service that is unparalleled. Zone Fitness Club also offers “executive style” locker rooms, which means, you can feel comfortable hitting the showers after your workout and getting back to work, school, and life!

The Science of the Zone

The President and Founder of Zone Fitness Clubs is Tim Forrest, who has 20 years of experience in the fitness industry, and who until recently was the VP of Sales and Operations for a company that ran 18 clubs in 7 states. His experience has helped him to see where the fitness industry is trending and to custom-create a club of his own that would blend the newest workout technology with the customer service standard that he feels makes or breaks any workout facility.

He says, “Our mission is to make it affordable and to make it easy so you can get fit and you won’t quit.” He adds, “I wanted an affordable membership, a motivating environment and a way to connect to my members. The Zone Fitness Club knocks down those walls of age, weight and gender, because everyone is working at the right zone for their body.”

Forrest believes that when you put every member into their own personal zone, it creates an enjoyable, less intimidating environment. It takes away that competitive environment that keeps people away from the gym. If you are not afraid of the gym, but feel like you’ve been there, done that, you’re going to love this, because it helps you to regain momentum and capture exactly the kind of activity that your body needs to start making progress again. As you get more fit, your zone changes!

He says, “The reason why people stop losing weight when they exercise is because they plateau. Our heart-rate training will help you get over that hump.”

Here’s how it works:

Members purchase a comfortable MYZONE Physical Activity Belt that, when worn, monitors physical activity done both in and out of the club and stores that information. Members can log in and see their activity from anywhere, and can participate in challenges based on their physical activity, measure results and achieve goals. This way, your fitness goals are completely your own, because the technology is a part of the workout, giving you the chance to monitor your heart’s rate and intensity. This makes your workout safe, and to be honest, it’s exciting to see your results. This is the science part! This heart-rate, training based fitness program helps your body to work smarter, instead of harder so you won’t burn out, you’ll just burn fat!

Forrest explains, “When your heart rate is in its zone for a period of 12-20 minutes, your body will work like a furnace, which means that even when you are done working out, your body will still be burning fat.”

Let me be clear, you don’t have to be out of your comfort zone to get into the zone. Your workout will be completely customized to you by a certified fitness trainer. Then, when you sign up for one of their Zone Fitness Classes, which are classes made up 10-12 people, you’ll get the chance to work out in a group setting while still meeting your own personal goals. This can be fun and motivating, but most importantly, the classes help you get and stay in your zone.

Forrest is so sure that you’ll see results that it’s guaranteed. He says, “If you work out 3 times a week for a month performing the ZONE Workout and you don’t see results, I’ll refund you the whole cost for your sessions for the month. I’m so confident that our program will change your body.”

Now is the science part required? No! If you’re just looking for a beautiful new club to join, where the equipment is brand-spanking new, the membership fees are incredibly affordable and it’s run by experienced staff, then head on over! The MYZONE belt is completely optional!

There’s More?

Affordable? Check! Fun? Check! No Contract? Check! Kid Zone? CHECK! If you’re a busy parent like me, you’ll be so happy to learn that Zone Fitness Club offers a Kid Zone that helps keep kids in their own creativity zone while you’re getting in your workout! You do not have to choose between being fit and being a good parent! These kid-focused, hands-on activities will make your kids actually want to go the Zone Fitness Club with you! When you compare clubs that offer childcare in the area, their monthly fees are nearly 3 times more expensive, and they don’t offer the technology, the science, or the guarantee, so what are you waiting for? Go check out the brand new Zone Fitness Club and make this year YOUR year. You can do it, Zone Fitness Club will show you how.
