WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SO LOW?!
Our low costs certainly does not equate to our high quality service and coaching abilities. Our training staff is paid higher than the industry standard, our members pay much lower than the industry standard and we do this because we respect our teams skills, abilities and efforts and we want you (the member) to be able to obtain gold star standard health and fitness support and services without breaking your bank account. To be healthy, fit, happy and feel great should not be a financial sacrifice. To continue our mission to support everyone and every ability we must always consider those dependent on government assistance and disability funding. And because we believe in fairness and equality we charge the same for everyone, at the lowest possible price we can.
