24 Hour Gym
Did you know that there is a 24-hour gym in Falmouth, Jamaica? Falmouth News will now look at 24/7 Life Fitness, an innovative gym and fitness centre located at Johnson’s Petroleum Plaza in Rock District, Falmouth, Trelawny.
Falmouth, Trelawny, Jamaica is growing at a rapid pace. Along with the business developments and increasing employment opportunities comes an increase in population.
Indeed, Trelawny parish has seen a sharp influx of persons from other parishes. Most of these people settle in one of the several housing developments close to Falmouth town.
As the town continues to grow, there is a need for support services and a gym is no less important.
The 24/7 Life Fitness Story
24/7 Life Fitness Story began as a means of filling a void. The Riddim Fitness Gym that was at the same location had closed down some time before. According to manager Craig Ernandez, his local Trelawny based family living nearby, decided to take up the challenge and opened for business in March of 2018.
Their motto is: “Yesterday you said tomorrow. Start today.”
24 Hour Gym
24/7 Life Fitness did not just want to be any gym. They wanted to be the best gym in Falmouth.
But first of all, they had to better than the gym that was there before. Additionally, they wanted to be a gym that can be accessible by all, at whatever time they found to be convenient.
As such, they have instituted a state of the art biometric entry system so clients can utilize the facilities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This sets them apart from any other gym around Falmouth.
How the 24 hour Gym Works
The impressive system is monitored by King Alarm in case of emergency and paid up members have access at any time of the day or night, as long as their subscription is up to date.
This is the biggest advantage of being a member of 24/7 Life Fitness: whatever time you think is best, you have access.
To make the 24 hour use of the gym even safer, the plaza on which the gym is located is Johnson’s Petroleum, which is a 24 hour gas station. Also on the building is the convenience store, which is also a 24-hour convenience store. The well lit area is therefore always ‘active.’
The Trelawny gym is located in Rock District, which has becoming a fast growing commercial area on the outskirts of Falmouth.
The location in Rock means it is in close proximity to Falmouth’s dormitory communities of Hague, Florence Hall, Stonebrook Estates, Stonebrook Vista and the new Stonebrook Manor.
According to Craig from 24/7 Life Fitness, “It is pointless putting in the hours, if the equipment isn’t up to scratch. Equipment forms a key part of our mission to provide an outstanding fitness experience.”
Falmouth News observed new, clean and modern equipment for all types of exercises.
From 24/7 Life Fitness:
“Nobody likes to work out in a sweaty mess, that’s why here at 24/7 Life Fitness we pride ourselves on having clean, tidy and generally spick and span facility! Cleanliness isn’t just an objective of ours, it is at the heart of what we do.”
On my visit, the facilities were spotlessly clean.
Clean, well kept bathroom facilities are available to patrons of 24/7 Life Fitness. The idea is that you can workout, shower and then go to work.
24/7 Life Fitness’ prices are tailored for everyone and ranges from daily payment right up to 9 months payment. They accept debit and credit cards. Despite the high quality of the gym, you will see that the prices are for those looking for a cheap gym in Falmouth. Very reasonable.
Additionally, they have special discounts as follows.
What Is Your Goal?
Each person that goes to a gym has a goal. It may be weight loss or maintaining weight, or getting rid of belly fat or to just keep healthy. Whatever your aim is, you may choose from the free classes available to members.
Yes, members have access to regular, free classes Mondays to Fridays in the following areas:
- Body Sculpting
- Boot Camp
When they decided to take up the challenge of running a gym, Craig Ernandez, the manager decided to make himself certified as a fitness trainer.
He is ably complemented by two experienced personal trainers: Andre Thompson and Rupert Bowen.
Personal training is available (at additional cost) for $10,000 per month (training twice per week) or $15,000 (training thrice per week).
24/7 Life Fitness on Personal Training:

When asked what her experience like at the gym, Shiona replied:
Wonderful, superb, awesome, convenient. They are very understanding and flexible and work with your schedule. Great reps and instructors!
Vaughn, who has been attending the gym for approximately 6 months, said he originally went there to lose weight. He was having problems with his growing belly and saw the gym as a way of preventing sickness in the future.
So far, he is happy with results. He has gained bulk (muscle mass), lost fat and especially his belly fat. His advice?
You just need to have a mindset and not give up. Come and get results because i have seen great results.
Julia Minto is on a weight loss goal and so far she is already half-way to her goal.
The atmosphere is good as is the equipment, management is great and I am half way to my weight loss goal. I utilize the personal training service consistently and I definitely recommend 24/7 Life Fitness to everyone who wants to get into shape and stay in shape.
Conclusion: Trelawny’s Own 24-Hour Gym
So this is 24/7 Life Fitness, Falmouth and Trelawny’s own 24-hour gym and fitness center.
Falmouth News found the gym to be clean with a great atmosphere for working out. The trainers were enthusiastic and the clients appeared to be comfortable.
What’s more, 24/7 Life Fitness is quite suitably located about 2 miles away from Falmouth town center in Rock District, off the Falmouth Bypass.
Indeed, the Johnson’s Petroleum location is close to where a big chunk of Falmouth’s population resides: Florence Hall, Stonebrook Estate, Stonebrook Vista and the new Stonebrook Manor. Also in close proximity is Hague Housing Scheme, Martha Brae, Holland Estates and of course, Falmouth town.
The petroleum station/plaza provides more than adequate parking and safety. Like the gym, it is never closed, but runs for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In addition, 24/7 Life Fitness’ prices are great and they cater for different periods of access, starting from one day. To make it even more enticing, the longer you book your membership, the more discount you receive. Add to that their several discounts and rewards and we see that Life Fitness has quite an attractive package.
However, the most notable thing about the gym is its 24 hour service. At anytime one wants to workout, one can. Those on shifts that have them working for many hours do not have an excuse. There is always time and the place at 24/7 Life Fitness.
