Happy Anniversary

By The MacDonald Family
Contact ANDREA with Questions 
 
Dear Worcester Fitness Nation,
 
Worcester Fitness opened forty years ago this year as Worcester Court Club, a twelve court racquetball facility.
 
When our family purchased the club in 1983, we did so with a clear vision: to create a health club where members come first.
 
The club has certainly changed a lot over the past four decades, gradually evolving to become the industry leading, multiform fitness and wellness center that we all know today. It has always been our members who have pushed our club to greatness. You've encouraged us to continue to make investments in groundbreaking fitness programming, and have supported our multiple building renovations. Most importantly, you've always been our number one resource for new memberships. You have always loved introducing your friends and family to Worcester Fitness!
 
To be successful, a business such as Worcester Fitness must have in place a team of professionals who share its commitment to member service. The Worcester Fitness team does this and more. It is our team that inspires us to break out of comfort zones and lead the industry, not follow. It’s their passion and enthusiasm for the work that they do and for the members that they work with that truly differentiate Worcester Fitness from other health clubs and gyms.
 
2018 will be a year filled with celebration for our community. Our club will be marking Year 40 with many special events that we think you will enjoy.
 
Our family is looking forward to sharing this very special year with you and YOUR family, our incredible team and with every one of our friends in Worcester Fitness Nation!
 
To all of us at Worcester Fitness, have a Happy and Healthy New Year.
 
The MacDonald Family

The Mom Olympics

By Steve Dozois, LMT, Worcester Fitness
Contact Steve 

Here at Worcester Fitness, everyone is an athlete.  Today I'd like to highlight the moms who do so much in what I call the Mom Olympics.  One big difference from the real Olympics is that mom's don't compete for medals or even recognition.  Many moms out there may not consider themselves athletes if they don't get to the gym often or have any other regular fitness training, but I'd argue otherwise!

Every Day Power Moves

Here are just a few things that mom's do or have done regularly that require some physical activity that don't include fitness training.  Carrying babies and toddlers, bags, and bags, and bags!  Racing strollers from place to place, lugging kids in and out of the car to all kinds of events like sports, dance, gymnastics, play groups, school, and more.  There is the constant running around the house to get things for the rest of the family, cleaning up after everyone, and hurdling over toys.

Every Day Lifting

Some moms spend half the day cleaning the house until they can't clean any more.  Shopping for groceries and preparing the meals can often be a contact sport, especially when their kids are around.  Think of all the heavy lifting involved with doing the laundry!
Now, I know not all moms do all of these things and sometimes they have help, but let's face it...all of our mom's deserve a gold medal for everything they do every day.  

If you are interested in Worcester Fitness, we want to meet you!

Worcester Fitness 5K for Planting the Seed Foundation

sarah copyI’m a chatter; cabs, elevators, checkout lines, and locker rooms are where I do my best work.

Yesterday, amid my Worcester Fitness locker room routine, I met a fellow club member who admitted that Worcester Fitness is not her only gym – she also belongs to one of those $20 chains with locations all over the country. You see, she travels a lot for work, and this other gym is within walking distance of her house.

She shared, “Friends sometimes ask me why I bother to keep up with my Worcester Fitness membership when my other gym is so much more convenient, and I tell them, ‘There’s just something about this place.’”

I agreed, adding that if I have to torture myself on the treadmill, I might as well do it somewhere that feels like home.
