Graduation cap icon Our Philosophy

It’s been said that our fitness club is less like a gym and more like a home. Not only do we help people get in the best shape possible, we strive to create a different culture. Caring for people, helping them achieve their fitness goals in a safe, effective way, and being a team member with them through the trials of life is what we're all about. Clients have valued the fact that we hold integrity, honesty, confidentiality and loyalty at the core of our beliefs. Those beliefs aren't just simply stated, we actually live them out!

Success Stories


I chose to work with with Body Basics because it’s what I consider a boutique gym, where I know I’ll get one on one support. After almost four years of working with my personal trainer, I’m fitter than I’ve ever been. She listens to me and tweaks my workouts accordingly but even better she celebrates my wins and supports me through my challenges.



Body Basics is way more than a gym, it’s an experience. From the incredibly trained staff to the members, everyone has a common goal and commitment to a better healthier lifestyle. If working out at a normal gym feels cold, alone and intimidating then I recommend joining the family at Body Basics.



I love Body Basics. I’m 74 and feel fabulous a lot due to the functional training I get twice a week from my trainer at BB. My workouts are geared to improving strength, flexibility, core and balance. Programs change periodically to keep workouts interesting and meet my needs. The atmosphere in the gym is welcoming and the trainers are top notch. I highly recommend Body Basics for great health and fitness.

Working out takes dedication and knowledge. It can be intimidating. Going to a gym without the proper knowledge could result in injury or a waste of time. Since time is valuable to me, working out with a professional trainer gives me the workout I need, in the least amount of time in an environment that is conducive to success. Body Basics is the right place for me.
