North Canton, OH (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
There were many well-meaning people who told Summer Montabone, CSCS, that her 24/7 fitness center didn’t stand much chance against the big commercial gyms. Now she’s celebrating five years of believing in her dream and seeing it succeed.
“A lot of people thought I was crazy to open Summer’s Fitness 24/7,” says Summer, “because they felt I couldn’t possibly compete against the big name gyms. But I knew that we had something unique to offer people here in North Canton. I felt people were ready for our concept.”
And she was right. Members come from within a 30-mile radius to train with Summer, who has appeared in several national fitness magazines as a contributing expert and also published four fitness DVDs. Summer not only has a strong passion to help others, but she is a true expert in the field.
Summer's expertise is enhanced and supported by her amazing staff. Her 10 full and part-time employees are credentialed in a variety of specialized areas, including nutrition, personal training, and speed and agility training, to name only a few. They are an integral part of making Summer's Fitness 24/7 a success.
The Summer’s Fitness 24/7 concept includes intense workouts that are designed to get people into great shape and do it very quickly.
“Now a lot of fitness centers are getting into the boot camp model, but five years ago we were considered mavericks,” says Summer. “We also offer private and group personal training, in addition to our kickboxing, Crack of Dawn Bootcamp and a Fitness Happy Hour. One of our biggest successes is our Body Fat Blasting Program which is an all-inclusive program of fat blasting classes taught by our professional personal trainers. It includes nutrition, accountability, and special email subscription with recipes and more. We try to offer lots of ways to get in great shape and have fun at the same time.”
Summer says that the fitness program is only part of what makes Summer’s Fitness 24/7 so different from big commercial gyms.
“The big gyms are great for a lot of people, but you might work out every day for a week without anyone even speaking to you,” she says. “Here, not only do we have relationships with our clients, but they build really strong relationships with each other.”
That dynamic is evident on the Summer’s Fitness 24/7 Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/summersfitness247), where members cheer each other on, celebrate each other’s fitness victories and remember each other’s birthdays.
“It’s such a big part of staying motivated and excited about what you’re doing”, adds Summer. “I really believe that’s why we’ve been able to help so many people.”
Summer’s Fitness 24/7 serves about 300-400 members per year and has been excited to see members losing anywhere from five pounds to over a hundred. Along the way, they’ve found a community of friends.
Summer’s Fitness 24/7 is celebrating their five year anniversary on November 1, 2012 and hopes the community will come out to join the party, which will last for three days.
The celebration will be held Thursday, Nov. 1 from 4-8pm, Friday, Nov. 2 from 9am- 4pm and Saturday, Nov. 3 from 10am-2pm. There will be plenty of snacks and treats, lots of giveaways and specials and the unveiling of an exciting new piece of equipment.
Summer’s Fitness 24/7 is located at 8050 Frank Road, North Canton, OH 44720 and Summer Montabone hopes to see plenty of new faces there for the special anniversary celebration.
“We’d love for people to just come out and say ‘hi’, check us out, get some great freebies and have a bite to eat,” says Summer. “It’s a party, so the more the merrier!”
