If a gym (open 24/7) came to Miles City that could meet the needs of high schoolers to elders, would there be an interest?
 Subject: RE: MC Fitness Center?

One vote for YES

Yes, I would be interested in such a thing. I'm sure I could two other people to go with me at night if we had a 24/7 gym 7 days a week. I know quite a few people who don't use the Centra just because it's not 24/7 and they feel the monthly membership fee is a rip off when one can only use it during certain hours and days.

Yes, Yes! I'm a single mom that needs flexible hours for the gym! Yes, please!

It likely depends on price, services and equipment offered. Perhaps a little more description would help gauge potential client interest.

May your wishes all come true, including the indoor pool. I know a great way to help Miles City's obesity statistics.

Jeff, since you seem to know, how do Miles City's obesity statistics compare to other Montana towns with a concrete swimming pool?

If you are serious, go to the Economic Development Center in the court house. Work with them to create a business plan and determine all the necessary specifics. Opening any business is much more complicated than asking a few people whether they would use it.

Would they use it if the location was in a particular place? Would they use if it the cost were over a certain amount? Would they sign up for a long-term subscription, which is the norm for gyms? How much would they pay a year? Would they expect certain facilities or just a couple of weight benches? How much would they pay for those facilities?

How much money do you have to invest? (Yes, YOU will have to invest YOUR OWN money.) What property is available that would be acceptable? What kind of loans could you get? What is your ideal gym going to cost versus what you can actually afford?

Talk to Mike Coryell. Get real numbers. THEN ask if people would join a gym at X amount of dollars with Y benefits and create a realistic plan.

I don't know if it's been studied from that perspective, Denise. The statistics for MC aren't an awful lot higher than state averages, certainly better than some but worse than others. Plus it gets confusing when we break it down to percentage overweight, then obese, (which has almost doubled in fifteen years) and morbid obese (tripled).
Personally I feel that when a town HAS adequate public workout facilities available, people will use them. Otherwise they can cop out with the excuse. I see people work hard at it every day. They must want to feel better, look better, live longer. Good for them!
Then look at the cost of taking care of the overweight and obese. That's a whole 'nuther matter. Too bad some of that cost couldn't be prevented by spending money on fitness centers, huh? If you really want to get annoyed, look at Montana's child obesity statistics, compared to nationwide. I wish something could be done to help...

Nobody is obese because there isn't a gym or a pool in their town. There's no need to go to a gym or even leave your house to exercise. The problem is the will, not the way.

That said, while I would not use a gym in MC, I would certainly wish anyone who attempted to open one the best.

That would be a great idea. Would also be cool if could include some group fitness classes such as yoga, aerobics/step.

Yes I do realize I have to invest MY own money. I wasnt expecting anyone else to invest money. I understand there is a process to go through. It was a simple question to see replies. I feel a fitness center could benefit Miles City with open hours to work around peoples busy schdedules. Just on a simplistic level, I don't feel money needs to be an issue right now. Just yes or no or what you would like to see. Thanks for replies everyone!

Who knows, sooner or later this could actually happen. Keep the dream alive. The right person might come along, or tune in, who can get it done. I like the positive attitudes.

A question to add to your information gathering might be how much are people will to pay per month for a gym? This would let you also consider what size a center you could start looking into.

Somebody could correct me if they disagree but I don't think it would need to be 24 hours. Does anyone work out between say, 11 PM and 4 AM? I would think if it was open from 5 AM to 11 PM you would cover 99% of the time anyone would want to use it and it would be a big improvement over the Centra.

24 hours would be outstanding. Late night (10pm or later) would work best, honestly, and there would be less overcrowding of equipment.

I would honestly love a 24 hour work out place. With a lot of peoples busy schedules they just do not have the time to go to the Centra during hours. I believe this Center would benefit our community!!

Hoping you all are still SOOO very excited and interested, as we are in the final loan processes to bring Miles City a 24/7 fitness and tanning center. We've had nothing but great community support and wonderful reactions to our goals, and we are excited to be bringing a new business to Main Street.
We are looking to offer many different fitness classes including zumba, pilates, and cycling. We will have trained personal trainers willing to do one on one sessions as well as group fitness training. Our center will offer a variety of cardio and strength equipment, that will hopefully suit everyones needs-and locker rooms complete with showers for those working out on the go.

We are thrilled at our new venture and are excited to finalize our paperwork and bring a new fitness opportunity to Miles City! smile

I hope there will be a Parisi-like program to develop speed as well as strength in your young athletes. I highly recommend it!

We were in Gt. Falls three weeks ago and while wandering through the Mall, we sat down in a couple of Easy Chairs that were placed in one of the open spaces. You put a dollar in the slot and got the most wonderful 3 minute massage...or, 15 minutes for $5.

In checking their website www.smartecarte.com (1-800-328-9336) it appears that you really just need room for the chair/s. You don't buy them but get a percentage of the "take". Wonderful for people "on the run". Also, certainly convincing that you should get in for a full-body massage.

Can't help but think that they would be great at a fitness center:-)
