Strive Fitness Inc. dba The Gym was started in April 2002.
The Gym is located in North Muskegon, MI.
Mary Switzer has owned and operated The Gym since its inception. Mary has an extensive fitness background. Mary majored in physical education at Ferris State University. After college, she worked as a fitness specialist for the YFCA and the Omni Fitness Club in Muskegon.
After learning the ropes and gaining valuable experiences from the bigger companies in the fitness industry, Mary became an independent contractor for health and fitness in the Muskegon area from 1994-2002. She continued to maintain her certifications for personal training, health and fitness, and pilates training. During this time, Mary began and continues to act as a guest speaker to local companies and schools explaining the benefits of being physically fit. Additionally in 1998, she started and continues to teach PEA 201 for Muskegon Community College.
THE GYM offers state of the art strive equipment-the only facility in Muskegon to offer this type of equipment. Strive equipment was manufactured for rehab and then introduced to the fitness industry because of its joint friendly user mechanics. The Gym strives for a personal touch with personal assistance every time the member works out. Mary feels it is important for members to truly benefit from their membership and points out ways they can be successful.
