Spark Fitness November 2023 Newsletter

As the leaves fall and we welcome the crisp November air, we’re excited to announce a cornucopia of classes and a new holiday-themed challenge at Spark Fitness! Our aim is to keep you motivated, help you achieve your fitness goals, and make sure you have fun while doing it.

In this season of gratitude and togetherness, we’re also reminded of the importance of family and health. Thanksgiving is not just about feasting on delicious food, but also about cherishing our loved ones and appreciating the gift of health. That’s why this month, we’re introducing a new initiative to involve your kids in fitness. We’ll be offering a members-only Kids Class Pack add-on to get your children (ages 10-17) moving and instill a love of physical activity from an early age. Scroll down for more details about this offer and all the great things we have in store for this month!

Thank you so much for your continued dedication and support. We love our Spark Family and look forward to celebrating the holiday season with you!

member spotlight: Linda

This month, we’re highlighting Linda!

Linda (@lmdanna187) always walks in the door with a smile and gives every workout 100%. We are so grateful to have her in our classes!

MORE ABOUT Linda

I have been a member of Spark since April of 2023. This past week I completed my 70th class. I joined the 6-week challenge, and when I completed that I decided to become a member.

I cannot express enough how much I love this gym. In six months, not only have I lost weight, but I have gotten so much stronger and I haven’t had this much energy in years!!

My favorite gym days are Mondays and Wednesdays, but I also love a good Savage Saturday with Alex! It’s a new experience each time I attend and I love the variety at each training session. All of the trainers are positive and helpful but not afraid to push us outside our comfort zone. I’ve gone from deadlifting 25 lbs back in April to 45 lbs last week … something I never thought I could do.

Spark Fitness is the gym I never knew I needed. I actually enjoy and look forward to my workouts now as I never know what’s in store for me each session. Seeing the positive changes in my overall physical and mental health have been so rewarding.

Thanks Jenn for texting me back in April and telling me to come and check out the gym. It has been an amazing journey so far and I’m looking forward to seeing what else is in store for me as time goes on.

To anyone thinking of joining Spark, take the leap. I can assure you it will be life changing!
