Our Philosophy

It’s been said that our fitness club is less like a gym and more like a home. Not only do 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!

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.

My trainer is the amazing Leah Noland. She's extremely knowledge about training, proper form, nutrition, mobility and the interconnectedness of our body, mind and spirit. She reminds me that I am stronger than I think and pushes me so I believe it too! Since working with Leah, I've dropped a full size, increased my lean muscle mass and I am stronger than ever.

Marian Woods

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.
