The health and fitness craze is taking over the nation. New gyms are popping up all around you, becoming more popular than Starbucks. That doesn't mean all gyms, and all trainers are certified to help you achieve your health & fitness goals.

When looking into a gym, make sure you dig into the details. Find out what they are about, who your trainer is, and whether they are qualified to be helping you. If you're not sure how to do that, start by talking to the gym owner, or the GM of the location. With that said, let's talk about Strive 24 Hour Fitness and why it could be a good fit for you.

Who is Strive 24 Hour Fitness?

Strive Fitness is a 24h gym in Wilmington, MA that stays open all 365 days each year. Strive isn't the only 24h gym in town, but we're the only one that promotes you to workout how YOU want, not how we want.

We are a clean, well-maintained private facility. We are locally owned and managed, with an owner that is willing to work with you to maintain your health and fitness.

We understand that everyone has a different schedule and different commitments. By being open 24/7, we have created a workout space for you, when it meets your needs, not ours. We do not want to get in the way of your fitness progress.

We are a no-ego, no judgment facility. Everyone, of every fitness level, is welcome here any time day or night. We strive to keep up an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable, from a first time exerciser to a fitness professional that has been lifting for 20 years.

What kind of equipment does Strive have to use?

The gym boasts something for everyone, no matter your exercise preference. With free weights, dumbbells, and kettlebells, you can work your muscles through a full range of motion, along with weight machines which are great for targeting individual muscle groups and more of a controlled, assisted motion. We have a power sled and a punching bag for additional quick burst movements. With cardio equipment, a spin studio, and yoga classes, everyone will find something they can enjoy.

What if I'm not sure about joining a gym?

Strive 24 Hour Fitness offers a free seven-day trial. Come in and see the gym. Visit with a trainer about your goals, your strengths, and more importantly your weaknesses. It costs you nothing to check us out!

I don't know much about lifting weights. I don't know where to start.

Not to worry. Make an appointment with our personal trainer. Dani has a range of disciplines and can help you work to meet your goals. With over three decades of experience, Dani understands that everyone has to start somewhere. At one time, she had to start somewhere too. Even if you've never been to a gym before, we can guide you to success. It's our job and we love doing it.

I've tried exercising before and it didn't work. Can you really help?

Of course we can. Most people start exercising on their own, go full steam ahead, gas themselves out before seeing progress, and don't stick with it. It takes 28 days to form a habit, and most people won't stick with it for 28 days to form that habit. THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL. Many people also associate running with exercise, and while running can be good for you, if you don't stick with it, it's not helpful. With a little push from our trainer, we can find a program that you will enjoy, whether it is running, free weights, or yoga. Once we find a program that fits you, you are more likely to stick with it. With a free seven-day trial, what have you got to lose?

Stop by and visit! We're proud of the gym home we've created for our clients. Give us a try. You just may surprise yourself!! You won't be the first, nor the last to be suprised at how positive a gym environment can be.
