About 2 years ago, a friend convinced me to stop by a new place she had heard about called Aquus Lifestyle Studio in Grand Rapids. The funny thing about me is that I have never, ever stayed with a fitness program for any length of time. I always have big plans but somehow life gets in the way and I take very long breaks from my workout routines. I went to Aquus anyway because I had heard such good things about them and was curious because it sounded different. And that it is.
Aquus is the brainchild of Julie Abraham and Barb Bergmans. Together they set out to create a special place where people could go to get healthy, fit and happy. Aquus has gym equipment, but it is so much more. There are no contracts or deposits required and one-on-one training is encouraged with special attention paid to great personalized service. Aquus offers top of the line personal training, gym time, group exercise classes, infrared sauna time, fit wall training, nutrition consulting and massage.
I am pleased to say that I decided to try Aquus over 2 years ago and have been going there ever since, in fact they are now even a client of my ad agency AT Media Studio. In addition to the top notch service, atmosphere and wonderful people, I love the welcoming vibe of the place. With East Hills Athletic Club and the MAC closing soon, I hope some of their members will discover Aquus, it will be a good fit for those who like personalized, well thought out training in a great and unique atmosphere.
Aquus is located on “Old 28th Street” near Cascade Road, here’s a link to their contact page with a map.
