MARGATE – The Katz JCC fitness facility is more than just a gym – It’s a community. It’s a community open to everyone. The public is encouraged to visit the JCC fitness facility during a free open house from January 4 to 10, 2016 during regular business hours.
The JCC fitness facility is open Monday through Thursday 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
When choosing a gym, does the idea of choosing a “community” come to mind? Most gyms are filled with people with their heads down, headphones in, and who keep to themselves. These gyms offer equipment, but not opportunities to meet new friends, business associates or just new workout partners.
That sense of community, however, is available at the Katz JCC fitness facility in Margate.
At the Katz JCC fitness facility in Margate, the leaders, staff and trainers have two goals in mind for their members. The first is that everyone who steps foot into the facility experiences real, life-changing results. The second is that everyone who steps foot into the facility also feels a sense of community.
“I believe that helping people improve and achieve their health and wellness goals is actually contingent on creating a strong sense of community. With developing a sense of community among the members, I have witnessed more people with a desire to attend classes, push themselves harder and strive for greatness. This desire is created when providing an environment where everyone shares common attitudes, interest and goals,” Chief Operating Officer Marg Mancuso said.
The Katz JCC fitness facility in Margate is offering a free one-week open house from January 4 through January 10 highlighting the 85 weekly group exercise classes, the variety of membership categories including couple and student, updated fitness equipment, and an expansive facility.
“We have something for everyone here at the Katz JCC fitness facility from mind body classes to Insanity group exercise classes,” Group Exercise Director Antoinette Wood said. “From children to seniors, from families to single adults, the JCC staff pride themselves on creating health and wellness opportunities for everyone at every fitness level.”
The Katz JCC fitness facility is an expansive facility offering a 25-meter indoor heated saltwater pool and an outdoor recreation pool, two racquetball courts, full-size air conditioned basketball court, mind and body studio, group exercise studio, dedicated cycling room, KidZ Fit afterschool group exercise classes, full-service fitness floor with cardio and weight training, personal and small group instruction, locker, whirlpool, sauna and massage rooms.
“We have recently upgraded our fitness equipment to meet the needs of those seeking a challenging workout. We have everything the $1-a-day fitness facilities offer and more. With our competitive rates and variety of membership packages to suit individual needs, we believe we not only compete with those places, but exceed customers’ expectations,” Personal Training and Fitness Floor Director Remy Pelosi said.
“We are so confident that those who are not familiar with our facility, that once they are able to experience it, they will want to become a part of the Katz JCC fitness family,” Mancuso said. “As such, we are offering a one-week free open house so everyone can experience what we have to offer.”
