A "Different" Gym


In the last few weeks I've switched over from going to 24 Hour fitness to a new "community" gym that's right down the street from me.

It's called HealthQ-Nutrition.  A Facebook friend of mine invited me in to take a look at it after moving down the street and I instantly fell in love the second I stepped in for a tour.

HealthQ is a "different" gym and training facility that not only provides top-notch fitness, personal training, and exercise classes, but that also incorporates aspects of nutrition into your program to help you see results quickly and efficiently. They aren't just your typical gym either, it's a community of people coming together to work TOGETHER to achieve everyone's goals. 

When I stepped into HealthQ to attend my first boot-camp session, I was so surprised at how much everyone was supporting each other and cheering each other on - I'd never seen that at any other gym before. 

It truly is a community. There is no room for people who judge other people in the gym - everyone is incredibly welcoming and it really does become a family.  

HealthQ functions differently that a normal gym too... Whereas with a regular gym, like 24 Hour Fitness, you pay a membership fee each month, workout at your own pace, whether your push yourself or not.. and if you decide to fork out tons of money to hire a personal trainer so that you can actually see the results of the work you've been putting in, they rarely, if ever mention your nutrition. HealthQ is actually a FREE gym, their motto is "80% Nutrition, 20% Fitness", where they provide the 20% fitness for FREE. They also provide FREE fitness evaluations and FREE personal training and fitness classes to their clients. 

They have some of the best coaches from all across the country, professional athletes, championship college sports players, and personal trainers who've been in the industry for 20+ years. 

Now, you may be wondering, a free gym? No way that's not possible, it's a scam, right? Well that's what I thought when I went in for a tour of the facility for the first time. But it's not, it really is the most supportive group of industry professionals who love what they do and really want to help people reach their fitness and health goals. Well, how does the gym make money, you ask?

People don't realize how much of their nutrition plays into their overall fitness... (not just how big or small someone may look but also the quality and health of their body on the inside).   HealthQ works with one of the fastest growing and biggest nutrition companies in the world, Herbalife, to provide their clients with top of the line nutrition and sports supplements. Because nutrition is so important to the health of an individual, clients do not have to pay for their training sessions, rather, they pay for their nutrition programs and products, how ever much, or little, they decide to purchase. 

The coaches and trainers recommend products based on the health and fitness of each client, and tailor their programs for the client to be able to easily attain their goals. 

Like I've mentioned in previous posts, when people are confined to only working out on their own and don't know the importance of their nutrition and diet in the health, then they don't see results they want. They punch in hour after hour in the gym and wonder why they aren't seeing any results, and eventually, they give up and they quit. 

HealthQ Nutrition hold each individual accountable for their own success. Each client has a health and wellness coach that can answer any of their fitness and nutrition questions. They hold group fitness classes and bootcamps (that benefit each client at any fitness level) every day of the week, in the early mornings and evenings to accommodate those who have full time jobs and other commitments. It's a team effort and as long as a client attends sessions (which are FREE) and follows their customized nutrition plan, they will see results. 

HealthQ Nutrition also plans community events so that everyone isn't just confined to the gym space. They organize hikes, trips, nutrition classes, meal prepping classes, business opportunity meetings and motivational talks, weekend outings (etc.) which really form a community. You are not only getting results, but making friends, and ultimately family along the way. 

I have never been so happy to be a part of something so positive in my entire life.
