Welcome to 2016! If one of your resolutions for the New Year is to lead a healthier, more active life, we applaud you! If you’re looking for an exercise facility to begin your new journey, we’d like to introduce you to LifeFit Wellness Center.
LifeFit Wellness Center, Beaufort’s only medically supervised exercise facility, is a full-service fitness center on the ground floor of the four-story Beaufort Memorial Medical & Administrative Center. Its 17,000 square feet are equipped to help you meet your fitness goals.

Classes like Pilates, yoga, body sculpting, boot camp, Zumba, spin and tai chi are perfect for members who enjoy working out with a group.
Members have the option of working out on a wide range of equipment, including treadmills, elliptical trainers, NuSteps, rowing machines, resistance machines and stationary bicycles, along with free weights.
But it’s not the classes or the exercise equipment that sets LifeFit apart from other fitness clubs; it’s the individualized health services provided by its medical professionals. Upon joining LifeFit, new members meet with a wellness coach to evaluate their health status. The clinically based fitness assessment includes a review of their medical history, cholesterol and blood pressure.
Following the evaluation, the wellness coach develops a therapeutic action plan with specific recommendations for cardiovascular and resistance training, as well as lifestyle changes. He or she follows up with regular assessments to ensure members are making progress and achieving their goals. The progress reports are shared with each member’s primary care physician as part of a continuum of care.
“Our job is to help people stay healthy and reduce their risk for chronic disease,” Senn says. “That can involve everything from nutrition and exercise to smoking cessation and stress management.”
You don’t have to sign a long-term contract to join LifeFit Wellness Center. The membership fee is drafted each month from your checking account. If you decide to cancel, you just need to give a 30-day notice.
