2016 Happenings


One would be hard pressed to find ways in which Gainesville Health & Fitness could further grow and evolve after a year like 2015. In keeping our goal of connecting people to each other, as well as connecting them with new forms of fitness in mind, we've done just that. Through continued community out reach to the introduction of brand new fitness programs exclusive to GHF we can happily say that 2016 was one to be proud of and that we continue to be one of the best companies for the world!

A Culture of Continuous Improvement


Our promise to the members of GHF is to make your membership more valuable every year. The past year saw an array of improvements to the club's already pristine modern appearance with renovations to the lobby, which included a transformation of our smoothie bar into the newly branded J Bar. The Main Center kids club received a wonderfully modern update & expansion. And we heard your suggestions to improve lighting at the Main Center and we took action. We now have brand new lighting all across the first floor training area!

More Group Classes

Gainesville Health & Fitness has always sought to bring people together using fitness so that a community could be built in which we are able to inspire each other to reach our goals. One of the ways we do this is by providing over 1,000 collective group fitness classes across our three health club locations. We expanded our Les Mills class roster at across all of our locations in 2016. Many of our veteran instructors took the opportunity to obtain further instructor certifications and we also added some new instructors to what is already the largest group training roster in Gainesville. But our instructors don't just seek to teach within Gainesville Health & Fitness; They also took our goal of increasing knowledge outside by acting as representatives at a number of public out reach and charity events in the greater Gainesville area.

Open Doors

This year also saw the rebranding of our conference room. The designation of the conference room as the Napoleon Hill room was a conscious decision to not just pay tribute but to also provoke thought. With the addition of words and phrases around the Napoleon Hill Room which aim to inspire, we hope to have created a room the promotes teamwork, insightful conversation and presents our members and guests with many learning opportunities. In keeping with the ideas that inspired the Napoleon Hill Room we opened our doors to play host to a number of people and organizations including but not limited to:

  • Request Physical Therapy seminars 
  • WalGreens seminars on topics such as preventative care
  • Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses of UF 
  • Rex Roundtable Groups from all around the world
