X Fitness Inc. is 12 years old today. Thank you to all our members, present and past. Weâ€™re deeply grateful. Weâ€™re honoured that you chose X Fitness. We started from scratch. No government funding. No franchise. Like all self-generated start-up businesses, we faced major adversity that threatened our survival. A year after X Fitness opened, Wellandâ€™s economy nose-dived with the closure of factories and business that gutted the heart of the city. Then the government built a fitness competitor. We took major hits but we made a comeback. Welland is still struggling. Its economy is nowhere what it used to be. But our members made X Fitness survive. Weâ€™ve been committed to be the most affordable and most convenient gym. X Fitness is a blue-collar gym. We never close. Open 365-24-7. Weâ€™ve kept our prices low – $250 for a one-year membership or $1/day membership, minimum 30 days. No building fees, no registration fees, no hidden costs. We come from the working class. Thatâ€™s why X Fitness has been and always will be blue-collar.
Iâ€™m amazed at how many committed women and men work out at all hours, 7 days a week. I work out late every night and the gym is always busy. On Friday at 11:00 pm, the gym was packed. Same with Saturday at midnight. We have strived to build an inspirational place, in the image of our football teams that weâ€™ve been blessed to share sacred memories with. Every day at X Fitness is game day. Thank you to all our members for 12 incredible years and infinite sacred memories.
