Travis Phifer, co-owner of Phifer’s Fitness, says locals looking for a great workout now have an ideal fitness location.
Phifer, who co-owns the fitness center with his wife Leslee, adds that there was a lot of excitement before they opened their Elwood location on April 1, 2022.
“We hope to bring an incredible gym experience to the Elwood community,” he says. “We look to build upon the current gym here and add equipment that will benefit all members. We will also add to our Elwood gym family the ability to have personal training and small-group workouts.”
Another great opportunity for all members is the flexibility to train at both the new Elwood location and the Tipton gym.
“All members at both locations will be able to take advantage of free classes in Tipton,” Phifer says.
Phifer believes there is a secret to their success at the Tipton location.
“We started out small and grew with our clientele,” Phifer says. “It is important to ensure you can offer the clients an excellent gym experience. Because we are not a big-box gym, we can adapt and evolve to ensure everyone that comes to Phifer’s Fitness feels at home. Being a family-owned business, we understand how important every single member is and we definitely look at them as part of our family.”
Phifer offers a variety of training programs.
“Both of our gyms offer personal training as well as small-group sessions,” he says. “Our Tipton location also offers classes including yoga, cardio circuit training, pilates, kickboxing/boxing, and karate. We hope to grow our Elwood location and look to offer classes at that location in the future.”
As yoga classes continue to soar in popularity these days, Phifer’s Fitness has ensured that yoga fans will be happy.
“We have an excellent yoga program at our Tipton location,” Phifer says. “Our certified yoga instructor offers restore yoga, flow yoga and pilates.”
Phifer’s Fitness also has a meal program.
“We have found a healthy lifestyle is important for active gym members,” he says. “Because of this, we partnered with Herculean Meals to offer their healthy alternative to meals. Our Herculean meals were designed for health-conscious gym goers. They are an excellent source of nutrients that will help individuals with their diet and training goals. We offer meals that include steak and potatoes, chicken fajita, buffalo mac and cheese, and many more.”
Phifer couldn’t be more excited about his new location.
“We are incredibly excited to open our Elwood location and work with the community,” Phifer says. “We have had success partnering with different local groups and schools, to give youth a guided start to their gym regime. We have also been fortunate to be able to offer programs such as SilverSneakers and Renew Active for our elderly gym members. We really try to ensure we offer an outstanding gym experience for gym members of all ages. We can offer gym memberships for members ages 15 and up.”
