Friendly Thoughts

I most appreciate the diversity of customers here in the fitness room. There are people of every age, from 20’s-80’s, and every race. I greatly appreciate the welcoming attitude, the helpful staff, and variety of services. The cost of services is very reasonable. Many thanks for all of the above.
