I am so pleased with my new venture. Tracy is very good as a trainer. I am 77 and so happy to still be able to do most all things that I’ve attempted. This is a real blessing for me to be able to do this.

I have multiple sclerosis and have been using FHF since 1992. The hydrobics classes and swimming have kept me out of a wheelchair so far. I’m very grateful we have FHF here in Franklin. Everyone there is always pleasant and helpful. Sincerely, Lena Wheeler

I worked there for 12 years. Watched many people come in and find themselves and what they wanted to do to make themselves healthier. Many Friendships made. [FIRST NAME REMOVED]

All the people that work at FHF are so very friendly and helpful. They seem to care for all the clients and answer any questions you may have. I would really recommend Michelle for massages. Not only does she give great massages but she will work on trouble spots that you may have. Going to the fitness center is always a nice experience.

I love going to this center. It makes exercise fun! I go to TAi Chai, swimming exercise and fun dance and weightlifting combo class with stretching to end it all. I try to go to my 6 classes a week. I can also work out on other machines whenever I can find extra time. Hours are so flexible that it makes going to center easy. Staff at center are very friendly and helpful.

Our indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool is open year round. Swim lessons, pool parties, water aerobics classes and free swim are offered in both the main area and the kid-friendly area. Pool hours are the same as the Center hours.
