If your physician has instructed you to begin an exercise program due to specific injuries or medical conditions, our Medical Membership program is perfect for you! Our personal trainers can help guide you through a safe and effective exercise program that will get you on the road to recovery.
Our CFPs at Franciscan are trained to help you address the behaviors that have kept you from eating right, staying active and making your health a priority. They can also help you with other issues, including inactivity and stress. CFPs give you the tools you’ll need to overcome any challenges to achieving improved health and well-being.
All new members are offered a free assessment with one of our exercise specialists. Our specialists determine a baseline for future goals by taking your measurements. Based on your information, your specialist will help you decide which type of training best fits your personal goals. These assessments are non-invasive, non strenuous, and only take about 35 - 50 minutes to complete. A reassessment is recommended every 3 months. To schedule your assessment, simply contact our Fitness Department to get started.
Now that your physician has made it clear that an overall exercise plan is necessary to sustain proper health, we would love to help you get on track. Our personal trainers can design a program that will help you increase your strength as well as your lean body mass.

Well first being open anytime of the day or night is a huge plus. I love not worrying about what time I get off work or if they will be open because they always are. They are constantly looking out for their members with promotions, free food and holiday celebrations!

My husband and I have been members for quite a few years. We love the friendliness and support of the people here. They always welcome me with a smile. However, I would like to be put back on their email listing. For some reason, I am no longer receiving emails.
