New fitness center opens in Polson
POLSON – Area residents have some additional exercise options since Polson Medical Fitness Center opened May 1.
The business, which is located in the Ridgewater development, is owned and operated by Kalispell Regional Medical Center and The Summit.
One unique feature of the business is “fitness on demand,” which offers up to 1,200 instructional exercise videos that one can watch and work out with in a fitness studio. A customer can schedule a class in advance, said Mike Tryon, facilities services supervisor.
The fitness center will eventually offer live instruction, he said.
“This is a start for us,” he added, noting the business will offer classes for diabetics and wellness coaching eventually. “We’re working to improve community health and get people happy,” he said.
The business is located near the Mission Valley Aquatic Center and other medical facilities, including KRMC’s walk-in clinic, Polson Health.
Among the personal fitness items available are eight treadmills, six elliptical machines and eight exercise bikes along with free weights and 12 muscle-strengthening machines.
Four large-screen TVs are available for customers to watch as they work out in the business’ main room, and protein and fruit smoothies will be for sale along with Hammer nutrition products.
During the month of May, the business is waiving the one-time registration fees, which will be $50 per adult or $80 per family. The monthly membership fee is $39. Discounts are offered for multiple family members.
Business hours are 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
