Basics Fitness Center

I am a 68 year old retired Missouri Synod Lutheran Pastor. I retired due to what is commonly referred to as poor health. Over the past years, I’ve had threatening illnesses (including cancer, open heart surgery, degenerative spine, Type I Diabetes and COPD.

I began exercising at Basics in the Spring of 2014 on the recommendation of Saco Bay Physical Therapy. They said, “We have done all we can do for you” I believe that Saco Bay saved my life by sending me to Basics. I believe that Basics gave me a new life. Basics fosters a non-threatening environment where everyone is encouraged to work & train according to his/her ability. No one, and I do mean, no one, will ever feel self-conscious regarding their limitations. I should know. I have, with the help and encouragement of staff, advanced from crawling into Basics when I could, to being an enthusiastic three times a week seeker of heath and fitness. My three times (1 hr.) a week workouts are a joy. Due to Basics I will not stay at a hotel that does not have a workout facility.

I wanted to thank the folks at Basics for what they have done for me. Their attitude towards their members provides encouragement that compliment mind, body, and soul.
