Our Community

Community Based Fitness

Creating an environment where our members can meet like-minded individuals is fundamental to BearFitness. With this in mind, we have a variety of group classes and on-site and off-site events that are fitness related or just for fun!

We also believe that being involved in the local community is as important as working with our clients within the gym. Through the help of our team and our clients, we have raised money for a variety of causes and have been able to raise approximately $60,000+ for charities such as Wounded Warrior Project, 31 Heroes, WOD 4 Dogs, Cornerstone, Wiggle Your Toes and several local schools.
