97_0__r0m6105_x-199x300-9217525-2915824Saint Mary’s Fitness Center is now 100 percent locally owned and operated by Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center. Previously, the fitness club was managed by Club One, a national management agency for fitness clubs across the country. This change in management will allow the Fitness Center to ensure innovation tailored to the needs within the community and enrich the local economy.

Saint Mary’s Fitness Center is a comprehensive, membership-based facility located at 645 N. Arlington Ave., Suite 100 in downtown Reno. It is open to the general public and offers traditional health-club services as well as medically integrated programs. Corporate memberships are also offered allowing local businesses and their employees to enjoy reduced investment rates.

“Harnessing the full support and resources of the hospital will mean greater efficiencies and more opportunities for our members and the community,” said Miles Mettler, general manager of Saint Mary’s Fitness Center.

In addition to being a state-of-the-art facility that prides itself on being the best in northern Nevada, Saint Mary’s Fitness Center stops at nothing to ensure members have a fitness experience that is superior to any other. The Fitness Center offers medical exercise consisting of developed specialized programs suited for people with various medical conditions, which include cancer rehabilitation, cardiac fitness programs, and orthopedic and core stabilizing programs. Personal training, reformer pilates, group exercise classes and massage are also services the Fitness Center has to offer.

Saint Mary’s Fitness Center provides a diverse array of programs and specializes in small group fitness classes such as strength training and toning as well as aquatics and mind/body awareness. Not only is the Fitness Center dedicated to providing quality fitness education, but the Kids in Motion (KIM) play area offers childcare supervision for members so they can enjoy their workout stress free. Children ages 6 months to 12 years are welcome to use the Kids in Motion room for up to three hours each day.

Saint Mary’s Fitness Center recognizes that as important as fitness may be, nutrition is equally important. That is why they provide nutrition and weight-loss counseling from a registered dietician so members can achieve their overall health and nutrition goals. Their registered dietitians offer one-on-one nutrition counseling, small-group sessions, sports nutrition and other programs that incorporate personal training, massage and nutrition guidance.

Establishing a place where people can enjoy and experience the power of exercise is just one of the many promises Saint Mary’s Fitness Center is committed to providing. The new local management will enhance its ability to offer wellness education and enabling members to live the healthy lifestyle they desire.
