Silent Seated Meditation 8 – 8:45 am

facilitated by Monica and Elaine

Join us in a silent first hour of the day while we sit collectively and tune in to the present moment. Prepare to be quiet upon entering the Sanctuary, simply smiling at others as you settle your seat. May the silence of your body and mind help you focus and become more aware of your other senses, your breath, and the vast space to explore within you. Feel free to trickle into the room anytime during the hour.

Yoga with a Kick! 9 – 9:50 am

Lead by Marisa Bible from Galveston, TX

Go with the flow, but don’t be afraid to throw some punches while you’re at it! Join Marisa for a fun and empowering class in this vinyasa flow mixed with the art of kickboxing. We will move through yoga poses while combining the martial arts. You will gain strength, flexibility, and courage all while having fun in this sweaty class!

Self Defense Basics 10 – 11:30 am

With Martial Arts Hall of Fame and 2x World Masters gold medalist Jeff Bonugli

Soon it will be getting dark early, and it is important to be aware of your surroundings. Have a few tricks up your sleeve with this basic Self Defense course. Jeff has been teaching martial arts and self-defense for over 30 years. He has real life experience and can offer you practical skills and tools to help you protect yourself. You’ll get some practice applying what you’ve learned thru simulated experiences. Prepare to unleash your inner survivor!

Seasonal Snacks with Sally 11:45 – 12:30 pm

Let’s Talk about Stress 2:30 – 3:45 pm

With our very own Elaine Rakosky

Led by our very own Monica Magee

Prepare to release deeply in this guided, extended, Savasana (corpse pose) meditation. Resist the urge to fall asleep, and enjoy the benefits of restful awareness created thru stillness and focus.

Enjoy a few samples from charitable wine organization One Hope. Let Jen explain how the wines you are tasting actually provide support and donations to great causes. Any of the wines you taste can be purchased with profits going directly to relief efforts in Port Aransas, Texas.

New! Business Family Plans

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Here at Family Fitness we offer a family oriented, friendly, and safe environment where you can work out and stay healthy. Our membership provides full access to our weight machines, free weights, cardio machines, tanning bed, sauna, group fitness classes, swimming pool, heavy bags, and a basketball / volleyball gym!

Our club rates are designed so that families are encouraged to sign up all together. It is for this reason that our best deals go to groups of 4 or more. Until now, we have reserved these rates for families of people who all live in the same household. For the first time in Family Fitness history, I’d like to offer you and your co-workers this same deal- the Business Family Plan! As an extra added bonus, we are welcoming your spouses to join you and your business family all on the same contract! This should make it really easy for your group to reach 6 people, which would give you the greatest savings we have to offer!

If you do the math on these plans, your rate could be as low as $220.82 for a whole year of health and fitness! If you would have signed up by yourself for the same amount of time, you would have spent an additional $168.88. The potential savings definitely make it worth taking advantage of this awesome deal! Not to mention the money you will save preventing sickness by being healthy!

Since we are extending these special low prices to you and your co-workers, there are a few
provisions. Each member on the contract must provide:
1) proof of employment at business (most recent pay stub)
2) signature on contract/waiver
3) must be over 18, or have parent signature
4) before membership renewal, all members on contract must recertify their employment via pay stub

I encourage you and your business family to stop by Family Fitness to see what we have to offer.

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

We are pleased to announce that our expansion project is nearly complete! The BRAND NEW Cardio Room addition is ready to use, stocked with brand new machines: Treadmills, Ellipticals, and Spin Bikes (oh my!)! We have also replaced several of our “classically vintage” weight machines with NEW ones!

Also, this Texas heat can no longer be an excuse not to head to the gym, because we’ve replaced our Air Conditioners with BRAND NEW ones!

So come on out and take advantage of these upgrades to jumpstart your fitness routine this fall! Feel free to call us for more information, 830-438-2219. Pictures coming soon!

Blood Drive April 28th

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Greetings, Members!

Did you know that with just one Blood Donation, you can help as many as 4 people? Approximately one out of every 10 people entering a hospital is in need of blood. There is no substitute for human blood, and only about five percent of the eligible U.S. population donates on a regular basis. If all eligible blood donors gave at least twice a year, it would greatly strengthen the nation’s blood supply. Do you have a pint to spare? (more…)

OUR HOURS: Mon - Fri 5 am to 9 pm (*limited Access from 5 am - 8 am w/keycard), Saturday 8 am to 4 pm
