It’s not about getting into shape, it’s about getting into life!®
AlaskaFit is not “a regular gym.” You will find no treadmills here, no elliptical trainers, no long line of unattended stationary bicycles. You will find a caring, qualified, professional staff that genuinely cares about your results. .
Why do we care so much about your results?
For me, it’s personal. I’m Ginny, the owner and founder of AlaskaFit.
As a young girl, I watched my mom struggle with her weight. As a matter of fact, she struggled her entire life to lose weight. It made her miserable. She hated being photographed, she beat herself up mentally and emotionally because she was unable to lose weight. She tried again and again to lose weight. These were generally short-term efforts that yielded zero results for her.
I was unable to help her overcome her struggle.
I could see that what she needed was to make a lifestyle change, not just go on a diet. But I was unable to help her. Maybe it was because I was her daughter (it’s tough to take advice from your kid, I’m guessing). Maybe it was because she never saw the value she added to the lives of everyone around her. I’ll never know.
What I do know is that even though she tried to hide her struggle and frustration, she couldn’t. I saw it. I dedicated my life to helping others achieve what she never could. Maybe by helping you, I am helping her. I don’t know. What I do know is that seeing my clients get results is the only reason AlaskaFit exists.
- In 2005, I launched AlaskaFit with the single goal of helping people make the lifestyle change that guarantees long-term health and fitness.
- In 2007, I introduced a structured nutrition program to AlaskaFit clients.
- In 2009, I launched AlaskaFit Boot Camps to bring larger groups of people together, share the fun of working out (yes, it can be fun) and help more people make real changes to their lives.
- On December 5, 2011, AlaskaFit opened its doors at our current location, 6251 Tuttle Place, Suite 102 (we’re just off the corner of Lake Otis & Dowling).
Bringing all of what AlaskaFit has fundamentally changed nutrition and fitness. Client after client has succeeded by working on fitness and nutrition together to see real, lasting lifestyle change. Check out our long list of Rock Stars who have made the changes and reached their goals.
Now, it’s your turn
As I said in the beginning, AlaskaFit is not a “regular” gym. If you want a $10/month membership at a place where you can be anonymous and do your own thing, AlaskaFit is not for you.
If you are ready to commit to making a true change to your health and fitness; if you are done with the yo-yo cycle of gain weight, lose weight, gain weight, lose weight; if you want to be part of a close-knit, supportive group that will encourage you every step of the way (because we know what you’re about to do is not easy) and guarantee that you will see real results, then AlaskaFit is for you.
AlaskaFit is not just about me. I am honored to work with a powerful team of professionals that provide the outstanding service you won’t find anywhere else in Anchorage.
