Fort Lauderdale Small Business Review: Fit Factor

Locally-owned gym in Fort Lauderdale, FLWith the new year in full swing, many of us out there are taking this time to focus on self-improvement for 2016. One of the most notable goals that many people make for the new year is related to health, fitness or weight loss. Although we go into the new year with the best intentions, following through on our commitments is easier said than done. It’s estimated that a mere 8% of people that make New Year’s resolutions will actually achieve their goals. So, how can we stick to our health-related goals this year? A key aspect to consider is the gym or facility we choose to use for our health goals. Using a gym with a lack of equipment or a negative atmosphere can actually be a make-or-break factor that affects your ability to reach your goals. While there are plenty of corporate-owned gyms to choose from, you won’t find the same encouraging environment you can find at a locally-owned gym. Continuing on with our series of blogs dedicated to highlighting Fort Lauderdale’s latest and greatest local businesses, Dr. Daniel Fenton has a special treat for his readers looking to get fit this new year. Fit Factor is a locally-owned gym that has been a motivating and challenging atmosphere for many individuals here in Fort Lauderdale. Follow along as dental implant provider, Dr. Fenton gives a brief look at this local small business.
