It’s almost that time of year, you know, when the holidays draw to a close and you’re left remembering all those cookies, pies, and gravy-ladened dinners as you prepare your New Year’s Resolution. Transitioning from carefree cookie-eater to fitness-fanatic definitely isn’t the easiest… but let us help you stick to that New Year’s Resolution!
Here are some of the best Johnston County gyms and recreation spots.
If you’re looking for a gym that’s got a little bit of everything, this might be the one for you. There are aquatics programs, group exercises classes, personal training services, nutrition programs, special events, and more. It’s a division of Johnston UNC Health Care so you know you’re getting the utmost in professional health-based care.
Looking for something a little different? You might want to try Flex Affect, located in Downtown Smithfield. Not only does this gym offer the normal range of fitness equipment, as well as personal training and group classes, they’ve also got some specialized programs for sports performance, online training, and some super-fun equipment, like climbing ropes, gymnastics rings, and an outdoor sandpit.
Fun, friendly, and designed for all ages, the YMCA is a favorite for those who want to have access to a lot of programs and amenities (including things like kids events and activities, sports leagues, aquatic services, and plenty of fitness programs).
If you’re serious about getting fit (think: bodybuilding or figure competitions), then this might be the right gym for you. Keller’s Fit works with clientele on an individual basis to analyze individual body composition and needs and create a personalized fitness and nutrition plan.
Need to be able to work out at any time of day (like, 3am)? Well, you can at BodyFit… it’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to a full array of cardio, strength, and free-weight equipment, they also offer personal training services, tanning, and a sauna.
Forget the free weights—you want to get in, work hard, and get out. Fit Body Boot Camp is one of the fastest-growing boot camp brands in the world—and it’s not hard to see why. It’s fast, effective, and fun (in a can’t-breathe, really-sweaty kind of way). But it’s not just about the fitness; they also offer nutrition coaching, goal setting and tracking, and overall lifestyle overhauls to help you get healthy.
If you’re looking for a basic, affordable gym with everything you need that’s open any time you need it, then Anytime Fitness is probably that gym. It’s got all the essentials—cardio and strength, personal training, etc—great hours (24/7!), plus the added benefit of access to over 3,200 gyms wordwide (so there’s no excuse for travelers not to stay active).
