In July 2004, after months of renovations as well as assistance from enthusiastic members of the community, The BodyShop Fitness Facility opened its doors to the public, and has since become a focal point in the downtown core of Morinville, Alberta.
Situated in the historical Progress Place building (10120 100th Avenue), any sign of antiquity stops at the facade. Inside is a luxury gym rivaling similar venues in more densely populated areas. The high-end equipment includes Life Fitness cardio machines such as treadmills, cross-trainers and stationary bikes, while the weight room is stocked with Apex brand weights, pulley machines and plate-loaded equipment. The entire gym is wrapped in wall-to-wall mirroring, and the floor has been finished with rubber composite tiles to reduce noise and potential injuries. Even the restrooms are reminiscent of up-scale hotels or spas. No detail has been overlooked, making The BodyShop Fitness Facility an inviting escape from the stress and demands of everyday life.
