"A Community that SWEATS Together, STAYS Together."

We want to provide a safe, encouraging, and positive environment for adults, kids, and athletes of all ages to learn, improve, and reach their health and fitness goals. Most importantly we want to be a place that people leave healthier and happier than when they walked in.


Living in a small town has it's advantages. One of them being that news travels fast, so by now most people will have already heard about the heart attack Todd suffered last week. Todd was just getting started with the Banks Country Fitness family, so Bethany and I have not yet had the opportunity to really get to know the Iverson family, but our hearts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.  It looks like Todd is on the road to a strong recovery. Never the less we have already volunteered the Banks Country Fitness family as helping hands if there is anything we can help with. We will keep everyone updated as we hear more or if we can help in any way.

This unfortunate event really got me to thinking about why it's so important to take our health seriously. So often we get caught up in the daily grind that we can lose sight of what's truly important. We strive to give our children everything we can, save for retirement, vacations, a bigger house, etc. but the one thing we so easily lose sight of is the most important thing of all (FAMILY). In the end, I believe that if you stopped and asked any close family member whether they would rather have that materialistic item they have been dreaming about or YOU healthy and living they will unanimously say YOU. Regardless of whether you choose Banks Country Fitness as part of your health plan or strike off into something different please take the time to make your health a priority. We owe it to ourselves, but most importantly we owe it to our FAMILY!!!

Again our prayers go out to the Iverson family as we wish Todd a speedy recovery!!

The Exline's & BCF Family!!
