At illuminate gym our philosophy comes from a much more personal approach to fitness. For years huge corporate gyms have sprung up all over the country selling memberships to those they hope will not return, hence why they want all your money up front. Now don’t get us wrong there is nothing wrong with the larger gyms. As long as you know what regimens are best for your current health restraints (if any) and your fitness goals because let’s face it, as soon as you buy that membership you are cut loose to fend for yourself in the jungle of iron and treadmills we call a modern day gym. This is why many people end up watching these gyms automatically deduct their monthly dues from their credit cards without receiving anything. However, they never complain because, “I’ll be back in the gym next week…I think…” Sound familiar?
Then there are the smaller personal training gyms that have started to pop up all over the country. The problem with many of these gyms is they are sometimes not very clean, their equipment is not always great and many of them lose the gym culture by putting clientele in their own private room not to be seen by the world or they have the feel of a dungeon only inviting to monsters and bodybuilders. At illuminate Gym the culture we attempt to create is as important as anything else we do.
