MT ZION FITNESS

Fitness, Yoga & Nutrition

Free Classes for the Community

Focused on living a healthy lifestyle, the facility offers classes to strengthen and define muscles, improve balance, and increase stamina. Thanks to sponsorship from the Mt Zion congregation, all fitness, yoga and nutrition classes are free. 

Timid about starting your fitness journey, our coaches will provide you with the appropriate modifications to meet your ability and help you grow on your journey. Our facility is suitable for those just starting out on their journey and those who have been focused on fitness for a while. What to expect:

  • We encourage comfortable modest activewear and ask that you wear indoor sneakers when in the fitness center.
  • We offer two locker rooms with changing areas, one of which has showers.
  • We have all the fitness equipment you need but encourage you to bring your own yoga mat to class. We offer foam mats which are great for fitness and restorative yoga, but many prefer a thinner mat for slow flow classes.

CLASSES

BOOTCAMP

Shake things up and get moving with this 60-minute class.  This class uses lighter weights, gets your heart rate up and keeps you moving. Using a variety of equipment, with an emphasis on dumbbells, kettlebells, rowers, bands, and bikes, you will leave this class stronger and empowered. Click Here for Schedule.

A balance of effort and ease. Over the 60 minutes you will be led through a series of poses, linking breath to your movement. Each pose will improve balance, mobility, and agility. While the diaphragmatic breath work will increase internal heat, massage internal organs, stimulate digestive system, improve lung capacity, boost mental stillness and mood. Click Here for Schedule.

Slow Flow
Yoga

&
Conditioning

For the bold and adventurous, this 60-minute class will use the full range of equipment, including: barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sleds, fan bikes, and rowers. Coaches will use a mix of AMRAPs, EMOMs, ladders and intervals to help you improve your strength and performance energy. Click Here for Schedule.

Less motion through longer held postures, this class is gentle yet powerful in its ability to create space and relieve tension. Going deeper physically the class will target connective tissue, fascia and ligaments; mentally turning inward helping to connect mind, body and spirit. Click Here for Schedule.

OH WOW. This building is filled with kindness and acceptance. They are true Christians. Not judgemental or dismissive if you aren't just like them. Do great works in the community like FREE FITNESS CLASSES (until further notice if you're reading this in the future.) My husband and I started to eat healthy and exercise after an pregnancy loss. We didn't know what that meant for us. We are spiritual, but not "churchy." Boy, did God have something in store for us! We are still new here and finding our way spiritually, but Mt Zion fitness center has been so supportive and kind. The fitness classes are hard work and so enjoyable. I can literally feel the health and wellness increasing in my body daily. It is so much more effective than Planet Fitness' circuit training on machines that I was doing. Big shout out to the instructors JOSH and LAURA. My husband and so look forward to attending the gym each week. Thanks for a continued wonderful experience!

Am a 62 year old Registered Nurse and was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. I know the best way to build bone back is weight bearing exercise. I was searching for a serious professional gym. The gym is right near my house so I joined. The coaches are awesome! The program is comparable to CrossFit which I belonged to 6 years ago. There is no need to be intimidated because the possible modifications for every exercise. I get lots or modifications. Great Christian environment. I am very blessed.

Nina – Head Coach

I took my first CrossFit class in 2012 and really enjoyed it so, I began assisting in coaching classes shortly after. In 2015 I got my ASFA certified as a Functional Fitness Instructor. I also was the head coach at Dragons Den before moving to Brighton. In 2017 I received my CrossFit L-1 certification and also began working at CrossFit Brighton where I was a coach for a few years. Some additional training I received at CrossFit Brighton was being part of a barbell club where we trained on perfecting Olympic lifts. In 2023, I received both my ISSA Personal Training Certificate and my ISSA Nutritionist Certification.

Roman – Coach

I have always enjoyed being active. Growing up I was a competitive dancer and in 2014 I took an interest to weightlifting and functional fitness style training. Ever since then I have loved pushing myself to learn and achieve new things in the physical fitness world. I have my ISSA Group Fitness certification as well as a Certified Functional Strength Coach certification. I’m always looking to challenge myself mentally and physically, whether it’s a 10 minute polar dip in January or a multi-hour military style workout; I really enjoy pushing myself to overcome! Recently I just completed my first 1/2 marathon and look forward to tackling my next physical challenge.

Josh – Coach

I loved sports and fitness ever since I was young. I began working out and really striving to better my health and fitness in 2016, but have been heavily involved in sports my whole life. From joining t-ball at age two, to playing varsity sports throughout high school, I’ve always chased the thrill of competition and challenging myself to be both physically and mentally fit. I have been the Varsity Head Coach of Lakeland High School’s boys tennis team for two years now, and have been fortunate enough to travel to the State Tournament in both years. I have a Certified Functional Strength Coach certification and hope to take my passion for fitness and coaching and share it with whoever walks through the doors.

HANDICAP PARKING

There is a designated handicap parking lot adjacent to Door #1 in the main parking lot. You can access this parking lot by entering at the Mt. Zion sign off Maybee Rd. Please note, there are a limited number of spaces in this lot so if a handicap space is needed, we encourage you to arrive early. Depending on traffic, we also have the ability to ‘drop off’ any family member with limited mobility at Door #1 and then it is possible for the driver to finish parking the vehicle and meet their family member in the center lobby. Again, if this is of interest, we recommend you arrive early. Otherwise, traffic patterns limit maneuverability in the parking lot to park your vehicle after Drop Off. We look forward to seeing you at our events and if you have any questions, please call us at (248) 391-6166.
