Health & Fitness named top health club
April 30, 2010
Although Holistic Health & Fitness was named the best health club in the Craig Daily Press' 2010 Best of Moffat County contest, co-owner Karrie Booth said there is always room for improvement.
"We're always open to suggestions on how we can be better," she said. "We have plenty of room for new programs."
Holistic, 420 Breeze St., opened in April 2007 and boasts more than 9,500-square-feet of usable space, more than 400 members, and 24-hour-a-day access.
"The 24-hour access is huge because we don't get crowded," Booth said. "It's spread out."
Booth said the facility's equipment, atmosphere and programs have also been mentioned as reasons why Holistic was voted the county's best.
"We provide programs for the body, mind and soul," she said. "We have yoga, meditation and other things that pull it all together for total wellness."
Booth said she and co-owner John Magnuson saw an opportunity to fill a niche in the community when they opened Holistic.
"Josh and I were massage therapists, but we did more therapeutic stuff with fitness and nutrition," she said. "People would ask us, 'What can I do to not hurt?' We wanted to build a place to accomplish everything."
Holistic offers mixed martial arts training, kids boxing programs and other seasonal programs.
"Right now, we have the Bikini Body Boot Camp," Booth said. "Basically, it encompasses fitness, and how to set and achieve goals."
Holistic has one intangible that keeps customers coming back, Booth said.
"Most people say they can't put their finger on it," she said, "but, there is an energy here."
