MILTON, Ga. — Hidden on the lower level of the Birmingham Crossing Shopping Center is the family-oriented gym, TruFitness Your Way.
Owner Londa Hipp opened the gym in 2010.
“I’ve been a personal trainer for 10 years, having worked in numerous gyms until my children were born, then continued training clients from my in-home studio until they were both old enough to attend King’s Ridge,” Hipp said.
“I founded TruFitness Your Way and opened my first location, TruFitness Milton, shortly after my children began school,” Hipp said.
Hipp wanted to offer Milton residents a comfortable atmosphere focused on better health.
“After becoming a trainer, I realized that for many, a gym can be intimidating and uncomfortable,” Hipp said. “I wanted to open my own gym so that I could bring a family-friendly facility to this community, and where everyone would feel welcome.”
TruFitness Your Way offers a full workout facility including equipment and specialized classes such as Zumba and H.I.T. (high intensity training). They also offer suspension training, Pilates and kickboxing along with personal training and boot camp programs.
Member Mitzi Marshall is a class regular.
“My family works out together and joins in on all of the classes,” Marshall said.
Personal training is tailored to the individual, Hipp said, but buddy training is also available.
“The gym is dedicated to helping our members reach their goals and all of our trainers and instructors hold certifications in their designated program,” Hipp said.
Also located inside TruFitness Milton are True Method Pilates, a full-service Pilates studio, and Thrive Chiropractic Wellness Center.
Member Polly Hemingway said what keeps her coming back is the gym’s state-of-the-art equipment.
“And the staff is personable, friendly and knowledgeable,” Hemingway said.
The gym is open every day from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. For schedule and more information, visit www.trufitnessga.com.
