MURPHY, NC
24/7 access, year round pool, friendly knowledgable staff and with a wide variety of equipment and classes. Easy Riverwalk and Park access for those nice days when you wanna hit the trail. A great place to workout and recharge. Thank you Murphy Health & Fitness

MURPHY, NC
I enjoy the classes especial boy Tabata. Good instructors.

BLAIRSVILLE, GA
Joined under silver sneakers program. Male 75 and not use to staying inside with not much to do so joined to get more exercise. I like to walk but weather this winter has made it impossible on many days. The gym has plenty of equipment for me to work out and keep my muscles in better shape and also tread mills for walking so I get in more walking time. Wish the sneakers program had one day in middle of the week so I could get in three days a week working out instead of just Friday-Sunday. Those working there have been very nice and answer any questions I might have. No matter your age they have something for every one check it out. Larry Collins
