WITH HER strong back­ground as an Olympian and per­sonal trainer, be­ing one half of the hus­band-and-wife team be­hind the newly opened sta­teof-the-art Life Fit Train­ing Cen­tre is a nat­u­ral fit for Juliet Cuth­bert-Flynn.

After op­er­at­ing Cuth­bert’s Fit­ness Stu­dio for over 12 years, the Olympic and world sil­ver medal­list one day shared her dream of set­ting up her own fully equipped fit­ness cen­tre, ca­ter­ing to the clients’ ev­ery need – from warm up to re­cov­ery – with one of her long­time clients.

“I had been talk­ing to her about my dream; what I want my fit­ness cen­tre to be like,” she told The Gleaner.

So when that client and friend pointed her to a big­ger, bet­ter fa­cil­ity, Cuth­bert-Flynn dis­cussed it with hus­band LeVaughn, and the cou­ple jumped at the op­por­tu­nity, re­sult­ing in the Life Fit Train­ing Cen­tre – lo­cated atop the Dunn’s elec­tri­cal build­ing on Red Hills Road in St An­drew – which opened ear­lier this year.

UL­TRA MOD­ERN

The ul­tra-mod­ern Life Fit Train­ing Cen­tre is Cuth­bertF­lynn’s – and any­one who is into fit­ness – ul­ti­mate dream.

For­get gyms as you know them. Life Fit is a true, fully func­tional train­ing cen­tre.

On en­ter­ing, you are greeted by all the lat­est ex­er­cise ma­chines, weights, and ac­ces­sories you could ever want for re­sis­tance train­ing. And it doesn’t stop there. A sec­ond level is fully fur­nished with a va­ri­ety of car­dio ma­chines.

“Some of the things that are of­fered at Life Fit are all that I love,” Cuth­bert-Flynn shared. “I love weight train­ing. For freeweight lovers like me, we have free weights, and we also have ma­chine weights.”

Added to all that are an open space for yoga or car­dio classes; two roof-top astro turfs (for foot­ball and other work­out ses­sions, in­clud­ing boot camp); and a bas­ket­ball court.

And yet you still wouldn’t have had the com­plete Life Fit ex­pe­ri­ence. For that, you would have to throw in the sauna, the ice tub, and the juice bar for re­cov­ery. All set in a cool, on­top-of-the-city am­biance.

“Here, we also have the out­door kind of fit­ness, and that’s some­thing that I love. You can do boot camps, which I love. I’ve been do­ing that for 12 years,” Cuth­bert-Flynn said of her early morn­ing Satur­day classes.

“What is a fit­ness cen­tre with­out a cold tub for re­cov­ery? A lot of times, you have peo­ple work out – they lift weights and so on – and they are sore and can’t com­plete a work­out the next day. So I told my hus­band we had to get a cold tub and sauna for that re­cov­ery and re­ju­ve­na­tion.”

And both are lo­cated right next to the spa­cious chang­ing rooms, with sep­a­rate ar­eas for males and fe­males, equipped with show­ers and all.
