The moment you walk into a new gym you either feel excited or totally out of place. If you have had the pleasure of walking into a Youfit Health Club I am sure you instantly felt like you fit in! Recently, I saw this bright new gym open up just down the street from our house. From the outside I could tell that this gym was different than others. The Green and Purple decor literally invite you in and make you feel like you CAN do this work out and you WILL do this work out.
The logo on the wall at the Thornton Youfit says it all. Youfit. It's where Youfit in! Yes! A place that has a lot of members that are first time gym goers, a place with fantastic equipment for all levels and a place that you can feel comfortable no matter what your goals are. I am really lucky that I have a Youfit less than a mile away from my house - have you looked to see where your closest Youfit is?
Youfit Health Club was founded in 2008 by Rick Berks with the philosophy that fitness clubs should be welcoming, not intimidating. From my experience at the Thornton Youfit, his vision is working. Seven years later, the company opened it's 100th location in April in North Providence, Rhode Island! Wow! That means you must have one close to you too!
I have a special love for the elliptical machine - and by love I mean I hate you!! Okay, not really. I really feel like the elliptical machines really get my body a fantastic all over work out. The moment I stepped on these ARC Trainer machines with my own personal fan and TV I was in for a great work out! Youfit Health Clubs offer brand-new weight training and cardio equipment and this elliptical machine is fancy and new! Love it or hate it in the morning!
With summer just around the corner I think we are all focusing on those summer fashions and making sure we are feeling our best once the sun hits. If you are like me, you really feel like you need an extra 2 hours in the day for that extra sleep and work out time. Youfit understands that. The hours that this gym is open is perfect for any schedule, not to mention the great Youfit Express Circuit option. Each club has their own 30 minute express circuit that challenges all areas of your body in a circuit in just 30 minutes! That means you can easily fit in a work out on those busy days! Such a great option before you head to work or before dinner. Time for the focus to change, take time for you - even if it is just 30 minutes.
One fun tip - for those of you that really want to do weights but aren't that familiar with them you can do it at Youfit no problem! The Purple and Green is also a color code for the weight machines. At my gym the purple indicates the machines that are for arms and the green indicates the machines that are for legs. So switch it up. Leg day = green and Arm day = purple! Easy!
Stop those coffee house runs and invest 10 dollars a month for you at Youfit. For just $10.00 a month you can have a health club just for you. The company’s clubs cater to everyday people who simply want to be fit, their way. So really, this club is for everyone! That's you!
Need a little help getting started? YouCoaches are here for you. Whether you're just getting started or need help getting back on track, our personal trainers are here to help. A YouCoach can help keep you motivated, provide advice to target problem areas and help you reach your goals. Such an awesome opportunity. My YouCoach took me on a great tour of the gym too before I started my first work out. He showed me around and answered all my questions. Great experience!
Looks great right? I love this place. I walk in feeling ready for a great work out and I leave feeling strong and proud of my accomplishments. Youfit prides themselves on being the health club for everyone but also in being GREEN! Youfit strives to be the “greenest” gym in America by being dedicated to using recycled materials in its clubs. The floors are made of recycled tires or Nike “grind” (recycled sneakers) and the heating, cooling, water and power systems are all energy-efficient! I must say, some of the features are top of the line and make the clubs look so fresh and clean.
So now what? How about you start following Youfit on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to start. I promise you will love the interactions and tips for the healthy new YOU! I am really enjoying finding inspiration and tips on the Youfit Blog Youniverse!
