Well, it looks like last Saturday’s Daily Bread Food Bank’s “Spring Drive Thru” food drive was a smashing success! Cars were lined up all day! We have no doubt that is partly because some of you fine people showed up to help out the less fortunate. You always seem to rise to the occasion […]

Your kind donations allowed us to deliver over 30 beautiful winter coats and outerwear, scarves, boots, medicine, and food to the Good Shepherd. Someone even donated his/her “Manchester United” toque to this great cause! […]
Thanks to all of our fine members who so kindly donated winter coats and other items to help the homeless!

As with most things in the gym industry, these huge corporations seem to “block out the sun” for the many smaller, independent gyms. As such, we feel […]
The post Covid 19 and The Fitness Industry – All Gyms Were NOT Created Equal appeared first on Fortis Fitness.
To all of our wonderful Fortis Fitness Members: We miss all of you! We have been getting our minds off of this by cleaning, painting, disinfecting, and renovating parts of the gym over the last few months.
