Where to Get Fit in the Fort
Posted on April 28, 2014 at 10:00:21 am by Wendy S.
In Fort Wayne, we are lucky to have loads of gyms and fitness centers in all parts of town. For residents, business travelers and visitors alike, there are choices galore. Do you prefer a one-on-one, personal training experience? A high-energy, fast-paced environment? How about a low-key atmosphere? You can find all of these, sometimes within the same location, and more within the following list, which is only a small sampling of what the Fort has to offer. Catalyst Fitness Catalyst Fitness is a private fitness facility with two locations in Fort Wayne. Catalyst is on the smaller, more intimate side, providing private fitness instruction and a limited number of memberships. They also have sports performance groups and fitness boot camps.
