They are a great facility with amazing staff that can cater to anyone's needs. They put the clients needs first.
I have trained with Michelle Kenik for almost 5 years. She is awesome! She helped me through my midlife crisis at 50, and got my body into shape: I had not seen a size 6 since I was 12 years old. She's very knowledgeable, full of energy, and is a good mentor if you want to be and feel physically fit. Thanks Michelle and Health First Fitness.Original recommendation
Health First is an awesome gym, unlike other gyms in Knoxville. The size is great, and it is not a pretentious gym at all. The owner, Michael, is a great guy and really knows his stuff. Also, if you like spin, you gotta try Michelle's spin class. It's fun, upbeat and burns a ton of calories. Of all the gyms I have gone to in Knoxville, this is hands down the best! All of the trainers are great as well.Original recommendation
I have been a member of chain gyms, worked out on my own and finally, Health First Fitness! I joined trainer and owner Michelle Kenik about two years ago when I moved to Knoxville and was looking for someone to continue pushing me in the right direction. I get bored very easily and need someone to keep me challenged. What I love about HFF is the small family-like atmosphere where you are never intimidated and always supported. Every trainer, as well as client, always make you feel welcome,answer any questions from exercise options to eating and encourage you along the way. I have workedout for several years and usually am burnt out 6 months in, but not with HFF and Michelle. I can honestly say I look forward to my twice a week personal training sessions! In addition, I decided to go outside my comfort zone and try the spin class, something I would have never thought of doing but since Michelle was teaching it figured I would try it. I was nervous about never having tried it before,and I was in the class with beginners and seasoned spinners alike but just like with the atmosphere in the gym, everyone is supportive and encouraging and I now look forward to spin weekly as well. I have also tried bootcamps which I love and they even have yoga and massage therapy as well. No matter what your level or goal, HFF and its professional and personable staff will make sure you get the results you want. Two years later, I still leave every workout with a smile, feeling healthy and energized and who wouldn’t want that? Give HFF a try and I guarantee you will feel the same!Original recommendation
I have been a Health First client for at least 10 years. The gym has gone through a major metamorphosis in the last 2 years with the new owners, Michael and Michelle Kenik. The atmosphere in the gym is exciting, never pretentious, and I always have a feeling of encouragement with my personal fitness goals. All the trainers interact with you and help provide a positive environment to work out in. In regards to my personal fitness goals, my trainers have put together a program that works for me and my busy schedule. It is the personal attention to detail and the understanding and tracking of my goals that makes Health First Fitness so great. Both Michelle and Michael have been instrumental in putting together a regiment of cardio, strength training, and overall diet plan. I have had measurable results thanks to both of them. In fact, my last doctor’s appointment is testament to the results that I have gained through their plan. My weight was down, my cholesterol was down, my blood pressure was great and my resting heart rate was low.Original recommendation
I would highly recommend Health First Fitness to anyone. No matter what kind of shape you are in, you can benefit from the attention to detail and the atmosphere. In addition to personal training, diet counseling and weight management, Health First Fitness offers other programs such as a boot camp, yoga and the highly addictive Spinning class. Again, I highly recommend Health First Fitness!!!
