COME AS YOU ARE

These are headlines on the covers of actual men’s and women’s magazines:
Sculpted Abs Made Easy
How Not To Gain Pounds After A Pig-Out
Which Dietary Supplements Are Worth Taking?
It’s pretty clear that we live in a culture that tricks us into doubting ourselves, into fearing that we are never enough, and even trains us to hunt down proof of it. With each degrading phrase, each impossibly perfect image that catches our eye, we add one more item to a growing list of our own deficiencies.
With your help, we’d love to change that—starting right now. We invite you to come as you are to Old Town Athletic Club. Why? We already like you. Where you see deficiencies, we see assets, strengths and virtues.
Though we all strive to improve in some way, trying to change ourselves in isolation, without acceptance and without support, is NOT the way to do it! You deserve an environment where you feel comfortable being who you are in this moment, and can confidently grow into your best self.
If you’re ready to commit to a healthier lifestyle, we can help. If you want to take up running or weight lifting, for example, or you’re looking for some fun and inspiration in the fitness world, we have the people and equipment to help you with those things. If you want to find out what yoga and Pilates are all about, we’ve got you covered. If you need a supportive community that motivates you to exercise several times a week, we’ll take care of you.
But mark our words: We will never make you feel bad about yourself. Walk through our doors for a real smile, a warm welcome and automatic acceptance. We promise to meet you where you are, just as you are, and move forward—together.
Life’s too short for magazine covers. You are you, and we like that.
