To combine exercise and nutrition in order to give members all the tools they need to get fit and stay fit. We will provide a unique, motivating environment in our clean, non-franchised gym with focused attention to customer service.
Why are we opening Firehouse Fitness? It all began as a recurring idea as I would drive past the vacant fire station at 3518 S. 7th each day. It had been the Adult Daycare of Abilene for many years and had served a great purpose by meeting the needs of disabled people. Now it sat vacant and without purpose. Each time I drove by I would think to myself, " What could be done with this building?".
Exercise and weight training have been a long time passion of mine. Naturally I thought of opening a gym and I felt like it would appeal to those who prefer a smaller, more private, non-franchised gym. We purchased the building and are turning the idea into a reality! We are starting with a 24/7 access membership based gym offering free weights, curcuit machines and cardio training. We will specialize in personal training as well.
Phase two will be to open the healthy lunch cafe and provide members with an alternative to fast food. Nutrition is a huge part of the equation when it comes to getting in shape and staying fit. At Firehouse Fitness we intend to encourage proper nutrition so that our members see real and lasting results. Nutrition + regular exercise = RESULTS!
Down the road we intend to have an outdoor exercise area with a beautiful view of Elm Creek. We will also develop an outdoor strength course utilizing the creek bank. We also hope to build a yoga deck with full view of Elm Creek.
We hope Abilene embraces our family owned and operated neighborhood fitness center! We welcome you to come take a tour and hope you will become a part of Firehouse Fitness.
