What are the benefits of joining a community-based fitness gym?

First and foremost, Fitness Ablaze offers the best value for your money, compared to any other type of gym. The primary reason is that we are locally owned and operated, and the goal of the members of our community-based gym is to provide help, support, and encouragement for each other. You’ll find the environment more welcoming and less intimidating.

Further, you’re getting your workouts programmed and lead by a certified coach and expert on a daily basis. Rather than walking into this gym without a plan, we’ve already written one for you and will lead you through it with the group each day!

At the end of each workout, you’ll receive a unique report card that tracks your progress. We also take snapshots of your workout every day and store them in our system. This is nice because it allows you to compare your progression from week to week so that you know when you’re making gains, and when your body may require some recovery.

A community-based group fitness gym is also better for your health than being at home physically inactive. There are many studies that have shown that individuals who exercise with others and share their thoughts are less lonely and suffer from depression less which has a direct link to physical health.

When it comes to making your lifestyle shift, you’re going to be in a group of people that are on the exact same page as you. You’ll get accountability from other members are also Tumwater locals (who also want and need to make progress!). It’s a fun, social atmosphere where everyone is striving for the same goals!

Finally, another benefit of joining a local community-based group fitness gym is that it will help you stay in shape for anything since you’re getting a variety of new workouts regularly and constantly bettering yourself!

Through our experience of working with thousands of Tumwater locals at Fitness Ablaze over many years now, there are some other benefits too! You’ll find yourself going to the gym more often, you’ll feel better about yourself and your confidence will grow. This all typically leads to weight loss or a healthier lifestyle overall!

Feel free to contact us anytime with questions on how we can help you make a lifestyle shift! I hope this article was helpful in encouraging you to get involved with our group fitness classes.

I started weight training as a client at Fitness Ablaze after having my 4th baby. Keeping up with my kids and doing the physically demanding activities I used to enjoy was a struggle. Sticking with an exercise program and seeing results wasn’t happening. The coaches at Fitness Ablaze kept me accountable and on track and led me to discover the best version of myself, physically and mentally. Eventually I developed my own curiosity about fitness training. When people around me began asking for guidance I realized I loved helping others achieve their fitness goals and decided to become a Certified Personal Training through ACE. I’ve been a trainer at Fitness Ablaze since.

Certified through Oh Baby! Fitness and NETA’s Senior Fitness certification, I frequently work with clients seeking pregnancy and postpartum fitness instruction, including core and pelvic floor rehab, and seniors seeking to improve quality of life following major physical setbacks.

I was an athlete growing up. I became interested in sports performance (strength and conditioning programs) to better enhance my athletic ability in 8th grade (mainly db curls at that point haha). I learned some concepts while in high school weightlifting class and ever since then have been studying fitness, nutrition, and psychology. After injuries derailed my collegiate athletic career i found out about the kinesiology (exercise science) program while attending Western Washington University. I ended up attaining my bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Sports Psychology. After declining an offer to join a collegiate sports performance program as a strength and conditioning coach i moved back to the thurston county area and opened fitness ablaze (in my garage) in 2012.

I am a firm believer in the power of human performance for both physical and mental improvements. I believe we all should invest in ourselves through fitness and nutrition. The only results that will come is a more physically fit, mentally fit, and happier version of yourself. It is all about self love. We all deserve it:)

I have over 10 year of experience as a fitness and nutrition coach and continue to improve my craft as a fitness professional through continuing education. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA. Certified Personal Trainer through ACE. Certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition. I was also co-author of a best selling book and 2014 Americas Premier Experts recipient.
