Need for a Gym in Falmouth
Falmouth is one of the fastest growing town in Jamaica, and is rapidly adding more services for the increased population that live in Falmouth town as well as the growing satellite communities. It is fitting therefore that a quality gym is established to cater for the fitness needs of the parish.
A recent report showed Jamaica as the 5th most obese country in the world. Obesity is the cause of most major illnesses, including two of Jamaica’s biggest killers, heart disease and Type II diabetes. Every town in Jamaica needs a gym.
Riddim Fitness Gym is owned by a young doctor, who also hails from the parish. Dr Alistair Bell, who practices in Falmouth, has seen the need for a proper gym to cater for the fitness needs of the parish. He sees it as a means of prevention as well as therapy.
According to gym instructor, Robert Hanshaw, the Gym is not one of those that you just lift weights and go home. They incorporate cardio workout and weight training, with specific routines for each person. The routine depends on your health condition, age, weight, body mass, body fat.
Whenever a customer starts at Riddim Fitness Gym, these variables are recorded and the progress of that client is tracked over time.
In addition, Riddim Fitness Gym routines target the entire body, instead of focussing only on the weak areas. The instructor says in that way, results are faster and the individual will get all areas of the body “looking great.”
The Falmouth gym is well equipped. For cardio workouts, there are treadmills, ellipticals and spin bikes. For weight training, there are all types of equipment to work every body part.
