We are not just a fitness program. At Seminole Heights Athletic Center we are a vehicle for life change. Anyone that has been a member at Seminole Heights Athletic Center for more than a few months can testify to the unique environment that is fostered by our coaching staff and our community.
This place has become a “third place” for many of our members outside of the work and home life.
It’s a place they come to unwind, work off stress and know that they can be their true authentic self.
No matter what your background is, your age, race, religion, or political beliefs… In this gym, we are all athlete on the same journey. In this gym we all root for each other. We all push each other through difficult times, we all celebrate breakthroughs both physical and mental. In this gym, we all may look and act a little different but we are all part of the Seminole Heights Athletic Center family.
The small ripple effect that occurs from nurturing happier healthier humans, extends from gym life to the world around us.
positive & challenging environments promoting health, fitness, well being & community
I worked at the Moffitt Cancer Center for over 8 years and all the patients I saw over the years had the same maladies…obesity, tobacco use, alcohol abuse, sedentary lifestyle. I started a workout group at the center for some of my co-workers who just didn’t have time after they left work to get to the gym. So we found a shady spot and started working out twice a week. I also had a home gym for those days when I was at work late and just couldn’t make it to my gym. I would always do a workout on Sunday so some of my friends started to join me for those sessions. Then they started wanting to come during the week after work. Our neighborhood didn’t have a gym so I started to wonder if I could open a gym and help my friends and neighbors make some small changes in their daily routine that would be beneficial down the road. I bought all the HOW TO books on starting a business, I scoured the neighborhood for a location and I came up with a plan! It will be 5 years in January of 2022 and we’re growing every month!
OUR PEOPLE IS WHAT MAKES US GREAT
