Featured Business Member
By Tony (Lem) Phillips
Our Featured Business Member this month is Island Athletic Club located at 105 Winner Avenue right behind Hop Lite Pub.
We thought that after the wonderful holidays, you might be interested in getting back in shape or just working out a little in a close, clean, quiet environment made just for you.
Go by and take a look. If you are interested in joining, here is what you can expect; a great membership price to begin with which varies because of the great deals offered each month depending on your needs.
Included in this membership is one FREE Training Session which includes easy steps on how to clean the equipment after it has been used. Clean after yourself is a rule posted everywhere in the gym. I like the fact that even families work out there along with Policemen, Firemen, and EMT’s. The gym even has a basketball goal on the patio.
They clean the bathrooms three times daily. There are lockers available in the bathrooms as well. Along every wall are personal items trays for your use. You will also find clean wash cloths to keep the sweat out of your eyes!
They supply a large bottle water cooler, a fridge, and several televisions if you like to watch while you exercise. There is music piped out speakers which is great to keep you going. Open 24/7/365, there is every machine you can imagine and two of some like treadmills and elliptical. Barbells, dumbbells, and free weights abound.
The Island Athletic Club really is a gym where anyone can come and workout anytime. Their facility is open 24/7 and offers a wide variety of equipment to accommodate the diverse needs in our community.
You can come in and train on your own or be assisted by certified trainers. Outside of general gym etiquette, there are only a couple of ‘rules’. The culture is easy-going, clean, and functional. Additional information can be found on their Facebook page. Of course, we suggest you stop in and check them out!” Also, watch their Facebook and web page for specials each month!
Drive, walk, or bike over to the gym and look around. The door is always open. Tell them that you saw our article in the Federal Point History Center newsletter and thank them for their support of the Federal Point History Center. We are extremely proud to have Island Athletic Club on our banner of Business Members.
