Making Time

At the risk of sounding dramatic, when someone quits the gym it crushes us. Our churn rate is extremely low compared to other gyms in this space, but still, we get sad and frustrated. No one here is just a number. We wonder what we could have done differently.

  • Our members who live in Sebastian and make the drive.
