LETTER FROM FOUNDERS

Thank you very much for inquiring about our fitness center.

We realize you have many choices available when it comes to fitness gyms and we’d like to take the time to thank you for allowing us to present some information concerning our business.

Having been involved in the fitness training business for over 20 years, we became increasingly frustrated at the poor standards in the health club industry. Quite simply we became sick and tired of health clubs where sales numbers were more important than member results, personal training standards were ridiculously poor and good fitness training programs and qualified instruction were almost impossible to find. We set out to create the solution. And we did.

We believe we have the best fitness center in the area with the most attentive and knowledgeable staff, the most cutting edge personal training methods and a clean and comfortable physical plant. You won’t find a more qualified or more highly trained fitness training team anywhere. We also believe we offer many things none of the other fitness gyms in the area offer, such as our lifestyle enhancement programs based on improving the activities in your life such as running, golf, biking or any of the other sports you might participate in as part of your life.

But we also feel that talk is cheap, though, and every owner will tell you that he or she is proud of the fitness center they own, and that member results are very important to them.

What truly sets us apart from the rest of the health clubs in the area is that we are the only fitness center in the area you can experience before you make a commitment. You can come in and meet with one of our fitness coaches, become a member for 10 days and see if our fitness gym is for you without any obligation. More importantly - we are the only Columbus fitness center whose sole focus is not on membership numbers - but on our member’s results. So come in and you’ll meet with a qualified personal trainers and fitness consultants - we don’t have salespeople - meet our staff and decide for yourself. If we’re not up to your standards, if we’re not the best, then don’t become a member. It’s that simple.

We understand that making a decision to work out is difficult. Will I like the other members? Will I really stick with it this time? Will the staff appreciate my business after the sale? These are fair questions that can only be answered by coming in experiencing what GO: Fitness has to offer. It’s hard to hide bad service, poor staff or a lack of knowledge face-to-face. We’re proud of what we do here and feel that if we’re given a chance you’ll want to do business with us. We’ve been servicing clients in this community for a number of years and are proud to be a locally owned and operated business. We are not striving to be the cheapest gym in town. This is by choice. Poor service, poor staff and poor member results are all part of being a cheaply priced facility. To our way of doing business, you can’t be the best and the cheapest at the same time.

This also means that our fitness gym is not for everyone in the community. If you are looking for results and you appreciate quality, then we’re for you. If price is your deciding factor, you won’t be happy with us. We really do feel we are the best and we’re worth it.

You can reach us by phone at 614.347.3012, email us at info@gofitnessiv.com or stop by and visit us in person to get started on your 10-Day Trial Membership.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and we look forward to personally meeting you.

 

Sincerely,

Nick Osborne and Sharon Osborne

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The GO: Fitness philosophy is to provide a fitness club and personal training facility...

for beginners and fitness enthusiasts, with an emphasis on introducing new and innovative exercises and systems that work for real people.

When you ask Why GO: Fitness, we believe there is more to health and fitness than enduring countless hours on a treadmill, calorie restricted diets, the same old-style non-relevant equipment. To us fitness is about being up on your feet, moving in multiple directions, getting stronger in your core, so you can enjoy the activities you do outside of the gym, in your real life.

Our Fitness and Personal Training Expertise

The owner of GO: Fitness has been in the fitness and personal training industry for over 20 years and has seen it all. He knows what works and what doesn’t work for the individual to be successful. He knows that 24-hour access or 100 treadmills will not keep you coming to the gym or make you successful. It is our connection with the members, our customer service, and giving members all the tools they need to get lasting results in a fun way.

This is the reason all GO: Fitness memberships include personal training sessions. Everyone needs personalized help. You need questions answered and guidance. This way you make changes and stay on your path, and finally get real results. Results you want and that make sense in your life.

Your whole life, you have been inundated with thousands of example of what other people think it means to be physically fit. Most people believe that a fit body is represented by today’s bodybuilders. We are too caught up in the idea of fashion over function. This turns most people off of going to most gyms, because they push this image on their members.

True physical fitness and proper personal training will allow you to do anything you want or need to do. You should be able to enjoy life, and look better at any age. You should be able to run, jump, climb, push and pull whenever you want to. Do you remember a time when you acted like that? It was when you were a kid! When you played, and played hard. Sweating and being out of breath used to be fun. Workouts should be like that. That’s what the workouts at GO: Fitness are like, like playing.

You don’t have to look like a body builder or fitness model to be fit or participate in our Personal Training Columbus, Italian Village, and Short North Area. You are truly physically fit when you are connected to your body in such a way that you can do anything you want to do. Unfortunately, in today’s busy world, the majority of us have forgotten how to use our bodies. We don’t climb anything except the occasional staircase and the only thing we push and pull are deadlines in the office. Your workouts should make your body move for real life situations.

OUR MISSION

With GO: Fitness, it’s not about the money spent, it’s about the value you get for your money.

This is the reason why we focus on connecting with members, help you to get involved in the fitness gym, and get in the habit of using the health club. We want GO: Fitness to be a value to you.

At our fitness gym we focus on you right from the beginning. We give each person a personalized tour of our Fitness Gym Columbus. This tour starts with a short conversation about what your goals are and what you want out of a membership (just to make sure we are a fit for you), and then we show you the club, the small group fitness classes, and how our fitness center can help you reach your goals.

We take our mission to help you get results very seriously.

We give you every tool to make you successful; such as free exercise and nutrition software, free fitness newsletters, and built-in (free) monthly personal training consultation. We are even going to call you if you are not using your membership. We care about you, provide solutions tailored to meet your individual needs and help you be successful.

The focus of our fitness gym also includes the training of our staff. The personal success of each gym member is why we are in business, and our training focus on that. Each of our staff members participates in 100 hours of training on attitude and attention on how to make your experience better and help you get results.

Why Our Fitness Gym is Different

At GO: Fitness you don’t already need to know how to operate the equipment, we will teach you. You don’t need to buy an expensive wardrobe to workout in our fitness gym, you just need to wear what makes you feel comfortable. You just need to be you, someone who wants to establish an effective exercise program, maintain a healthy lifestyle and see lasting results.
