Gym Renovations at GHF Main Starts June 2024

A Message From Joe Cirulli, Founder & Owner

Back when I started GHF, I had to make a crucial decision about our future. Essentially, it boils down to two options: Do we build a model that can be replicated in multiple cities, or do we focus on serving one community to the best of our ability?

We chose to focus on you—our community in Gainesville. Our local focus has allowed us to grow from a modest 1,500 square foot center in 1978 (roughly the size of our current X-Force Body Studio) to an expansive 122,000 square foot campus. Starting in June 2024, we will adding 11,000 sq. ft. to our main gym facility. 
Our commitment to meeting the unique needs of our community has led to a variety of specialized offerings, including a women’s-only center, our Tioga location, hundreds of new pieces of equipment, two outdoor training spaces, and a range of boutique fitness studios.

We've never stopped working to be better, and we're not about to start now. Thank you for being a part of our journey for the past 45 years. Here's to many more years of fitness, well-being, and community. Follow below for all of the details!rendering outside building nw corner gainesville health & fitness main
