Get Fit in Lenox, The Wellness Guy

lenox fitnessI caught myself digging into a pint of Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip the other day while watching Xterra and X-Games.  As I watched elite athletes push themselves to the limit I realized I’ve got to snap myself out of this winter haze!  That’s why it’s good to know there are indoor options when it’s -7 outside.  The former Lenox Fitness Center and Spa is under new ownership and will soon bring in a new state-of-the-art cardio deck.  They’re also adding strength pieces and some great training options to get you where you want to be.  Under the new leadership of Sue Merritt, Personal Trainer and Owner, Lenox Fitness is recreating itself with an emphasis on classes and programs, they will also now offer day passes and punchcards which is a great value to visitors who are wanting to keep up their workout regime while visiting the Berkshires.

Sue modestly told me that she runs “the best spinning class in the Berkshires.”  Okay— and there’s also MMA boxing for women, martial arts, kettle bells and boot camps.  Sounds fun to me.  She works with athletes on plyometrics (a fancy way of saying developing power), balance and stability.  Of course balance and stability also appeal to the over 60 crowd, so her clients run the gamut.  She is adding a physical therapist and dietician to round-out her offerings and did I mention they run a small spa as well?  They have a great upstairs space for classes.  And what I really like is the day rate option so you can try it out before plunging into membership or again, as mentioned above, great if you are just here for a short time period.  Classes are included in both the punch card offering and memberships.  So if you want to get fit in Lenox in the Berkshires, here’s your chance.  I guess it’s time to put down the Haagen-Dazs…  Visit Lenox Fit or search “Lenox Fit, Inc.” on Facebook to keep up.
