In-shape Health Clubs (ISHC) was founded in 1981 when a small racquetball club in Stockton, California was converted into a health club with a number of new amenities. Interestingly, this chain does not like its health clubs to be called "gyms" because it doesn't want people to think that it is just a place for them to work out. Its mission is to motivate communities to be healthy, fit, and happy by creating a place of belonging and human connection. This will enable clients to achieve their fitness goals. Community engagement makes this health club a safe and happy place.
For any health club participant who currently does not participate in a lot of physical activity, working with one of ISHC's personal trainers would be a wonderful resource. Each ISHC trainer is trained to help members reach their health and fitness goals. If you are looking for a handful of training sessions with a personal trainer, you can purchase a $199 plan for four sessions. After these four sessions, you can decide for yourself if you feel that you have learned enough to take charge of your physical training or if you would like to continue with personal training sessions.
If you decide to work with a personal trainer, here are the types of service you will receive:
The MOVE7 Training System only works through the constant use of movement. This program uses seven main movements:
ISHC works hard to make sure that its facility is family-friendly. To best serve families, a number of facilities have "Kid Zones." These zones are for kids ages 12 and younger and they are separated by age. Children can be checked-in to the Kid Zone for up to two hours at a time. The purpose of these zones is to allow parents to exercise and enjoy the facility without worrying about their kids as well as helping the kids be active with the following activities:
Amenities in the "Kid Zone" vary by location.
ISHC has a reputation of providing members with a wide variety of nice equipment that has been well cared for. Most health club locations offer the following amenities:
A number of group fitness classes are provided at various times throughout the day. Some of these include (but are not limited to):
When you head to your local health club or fitness center to get your daily workout in, the last thing that you need is a dirty facility. Though not consistent in all locations, health club members from a variety of locations have complained that pool facilities, saunas, and locker room facilities have been consistently dirty.
In order to cancel your membership, you will need to send a copy to the administrative offices in Stockton, California. Once this is received, a 30-day processing period will begin before the cancellation takes effect. If any charges are due during those 30 days, it is required that they are paid.
Overall, the process of cancelling your membership is complicated and has many glitches.
