About Our Fitness Center
Almost 20 years ago, Houston Gym opened as an alternative to big, impersonal fitness centers with staffs of high-pressure salespeople. We built a facility that boasts NEW state-of -the-art equipment, yet retains the casual feel of a neighborhood gym. Simply put, Houston Gym is a place for people who are serious about achieving physical fitness.
Houston Gym is committed to providing our members with the tools they need for an effective, efficient and enjoyable exercise program. That’s led to a well-earned reputation as a great place to work out. Our knowledgeable, professional counselors take an active role in each member’s individual success, creating an atmosphere of assistance and encouragement. Nationally Certified and Accredited Personal Trainers will take your fitness to the next level.
Having outgrown our original location, our awesome new 15,000 square-foot fitness gym is at 1501 Durham.

Houston Gym is a laid-back, high-energy neighborhood spot with all of the modern equipment and none of the attitude of the large chain gyms. It offers an extensive freeweight facility and has upgraded to LifeFitness Cross-Trainer machines for low-impact cardiovascular workouts. The gym concentrates on all aspects of fitness,from cardiovascular to wieght training. One of the 15 personal trainers on staff will walk you through your first three or four workouts and help you determine your personal fitness goals. Not only is the gym’s attitude relaxed, its payment plan is too — you are only required to sign up for a simple one-year contract.

The most notable equipment addition is the new 12-station state-of-the-art cybex VR2 equipment. This equipment is designed to accommodate users of all sizes and exercise levels, from rehabilitative work to competitive bodybuilding. All staff members have been thoroughly trained on the use of this equipment and will be instructing members old and new on the proper techniques and benefits of these exciting new machines. “This new equipment will enable Houston Gym to tailor-make 30- to 45-minute exercise programs for active Houstonians who want to shed a few pounds, and build and tone their bodies,” says Bobby Arnold, club manager. “Then we always have free weights to add different exercises to routines over time.”
