MILLEDGEVILLE — For residents looking for a local health club this summer that offers a  range of services to help guide them on the path to healthier living, Kinetix Health Club on Highway 22 may be just what the doctor ordered. 

The health club, once known as Fitness Plus, was renamed Kinetix in January. The club offers a wide range of private and group classes, all professionally designed to target specific needs. 

“There are a lot of benefits to joining a health club, but the ones that stand out the most is that it helps you look better, feel better and live a healthier lifestyle,” said Greg Miller, club co-owner. 

When Miller heard that the owner of Fitness Plus had a potential interest in selling the facility, he saw it as an opportunity to branch out on his own. 

“I started with the original Kinetix in Macon and when my partner heard about the possibility of Fitness Plus selling, I figured it’d be a great way to branch out and have my own club,” said Miller. 

The facility has a slightly new business model in place along with several pieces of new equipment. According to Haley Burnett, general manager of the health club, there have been consistent improvements made ever since Hill acquired ownership.

“We haven’t made it into a completely new gym,” said Miller. “We’re just upgrading and continuing the process of making the health club what it should be, which is the premier health club and gym for Milledgeville.”

In June, Kinetix will have a day dedicated to thanking all of its members for their continued business while allowing other residents of Baldwin County to experience the gym for themselves.

“We’re having a Member Appreciation Day on June 24 to introduce some brand new programs to our club,” said Evan Grimes, personal training manager. “Members can bring guests to try the place out and see for themselves if the health club is a good fit for them.” 

Kinetix has a variety of membership options, which are flexible and feasible for everybody. Family and group discounts are available. Classes at Kinetix range from pilates, core crushing, abs and body pump to light aerobics. 

In addition to an introduction of the new programs, there will also be food and drinks available for members and their guests during the Member Appreciation Day event. Kinetix employees will also give away a one-month membership, T-shirts, as well as a donation of free training sessions by the club’s personal trainers. 

“There will be local companies with their own giveaways set up in the club too,” said Grimes. 

According to Miller, the invitation was given to local businesses to join the Member Appreciation Day as a way of saying thanks for their continued support for the gym. 

Miller points out that Kinetix is a club for real people. You won’t feel intimidated by others and it’s a positive environment all around. 

“It’s a spacious club with state-of-the-art amenities with a comfortable atmosphere that encourages members to get fit,” said Miller. “I feel we have great staff and personnel and I invite everyone to come give us a try.”

Kinetix is located at 60 Hwy 22 W, Suite 92 and is a 24-hour facility. For more information about the club’s offerings, call 478-452-2348.
