Fosfit for fitness and lifestyle in Casino
THERE is a new place to exercise in Casino.
Nicholas Foster owns and operates Fosfit Health Centre on the Bruxner Hwy.
The centre is open 24 hours a day, so people such as shift workers can exercise any time of the day or night.
Unlike most gyms, Fosfit has a creche, modern equipment with incorporated television screens, disabled access and separate male and female changerooms.
"This is a family-friendly club," Mr Foster said.
"We've brought in features you don't expect from a small-town facility."
Mr Foster was born and grew up in Casino and he sees the centre as an opportunity to provide something different.
"We are a centre for all body shapes and sizes. We are friendly and offer advice to people who may have never been to a gym before," he said.
"We spend time with you and make sure you're comfortable."
With his wife Jemma Foster, he has two sons, an 18-month old and a three-week old.
He knows how important it is to provide a service that is suitable for families.
That is why the fees are deliberately affordable.
"For as little as $12 a week, you have unlimited access to the centre," Mr Foster said.
And once at the centre, you have access to nationally accredited personal trainers Lewis Johnson and Kate Cairnduff.
"Through my boxing and fitness classes I get to meet and interact with amazing local women," Ms Cairnduff said.
Mr Johnson competes in body building and loves the technical aspect of training.
"I'm so lucky to be able to turn my passion into my work at a young age," he said.
Both trainers can tailor a fitness program to suit individual needs.
"We provide you with all the assistance you need to exercise safely," Mr Foster said.
