inShape History

After three weeks of building the space out, inShape Personal Fitness opened it’s doors on August 1, 2003.  Appointments started at 5am and finished at 6pm.  Among the first clients to workout that day at our facility are Ken and Marlene Miller; who still workout at inShape to this day.  But, I’m getting ahead of myself.  Let me start from the beginning.

Colin and I met at a private training facility in 1997.  As a matter of fact, Colin hired me to train at that facility.  After one year, I learned that Colin had left this company and started training for himself.  I slowly followed in his footsteps training from one private gym to another.  We trained side-by-side independently for several years in the hope that one day we could be partners in owning our own facility.

In 2002 Colin and I secured some fitness equipment.  Now, it was imperative that we find a location to open, own and operate our own personal training gym.  We had our equipment in storage for over nine months before we secured our current location.  With the financial help of a couple generous clients and about 10 credit cards, Colin and I were able to facilitate the build-out for inShape Personal Fitness.

I am happy to say that we are now training into our tenth year (2012) and to this day, we have clients that have started with us since day one.  I would like to take this opportunity to show our gratitude to all our clients; in trusting us with your health and fitness and making us feel like part of your family.  Thank you very much.
