Do you go to a gym where you feel like you don’t quite belong? Haven’t met your “gym buds” yet? Is it hard for you to get excited about your daily workout? If the answer to any of these questions was yes, then take a drive down Robert Grissom Parkway to your new gym home at Core Fitness.

We aren’t like the neighborhood globo gym where it feels like you are just another person. We aren’t a gym where you will feel like you are putting in the long sweaty hours without dropping a pound on the scale and we definitely aren’t a gym where it feels like everyone is giving you the judgmental “stink eye”.

Walking through Core’s front door is like walking into your second home, crazy relatives and all. At Core we offer classes that feature every facet of fitness. From Pilates to spin to kickboxing to CrossFit*, our professional trainers will help you make your fitness dreams a sweet reality. As one of our members says, “Joining core fitness was like joining a family. This is the first time in my life I’ve looked forward to getting up and going to the gym.” At Core, we believe a healthier body and dedication to physical fitness contributes to a healthier community – and we want to make Myrtle Beach the best community it can be.

Here are the top five reasons YOU need to be the next member to join our gym family:

Like we have said, by joining Core Fitness you aren’t just joining a gym, but you are joining a family. Ask any member and they will tell you that they have made some of their closest friends while working out at Core. Heck, you might even meet your future spouse – it’s happened a time or two.

We believe that going to the gym should not feel like a forced part of your day, but instead something you look forward to doing. We strive to make fitness fun, so we incorporate a number of different activities in our gym to create community. From community-wide gym days to fitness competitions, we strive to create an environment where you don’t feel like another number, but a member of a community.

Variety of Classes
Walk into Core and you won’t see a normal gym setup. Yes, you’ll see free weights, barbells, bench presses, machines and cardio equipment. But, you’ll also see an area specifically designed for CrossFit*, a Pilates studio, a spin room and other rooms dedicated to fitness classes.

What makes us different at Core is that we offer something for everyone. No matter what your fitness goals and workout style is, you can find it at Core. Along with traditional weightlifting and cardio training, we currently offer CrossFit (run by our sister company, CrossFit Up Dog), Spinning, Pilates (via It’s A Core Thing), yoga, Zumba, TRX training and personal and group training, dance classes, aerial fitness classes and much more!

Like space? We have space! Our 14,000 square-foot facility features cardio and strength machines from Life Fitness, as well as Hammer Strength plate-loaded equipment, kettlebells, pull-up bars, heavy bag equipment, battle ropes, spinning bikes and much more.  You won’t feel cramped here!

Locker Rooms
We have all seen the shower floor at a gym that just looked grimy and unclean. You shower and then feel as if you leave the shower dirtier than before. At Core Fitness, members enjoy state-of-the-art facilities. We offer spacious locker rooms for both men and women with individual showers. Our locker rooms are cleaned daily and provide enough space for privacy.

Additionally, we feature individual changing rooms for added privacy. Need to apply your makeup before heading off to work? Our granite top vanity provides more than enough space to do your hair and makeup before heading out for the day. In our locker rooms you won’t feel like you have to go home to get ready for work after a morning workout. Instead, you’ll feel right at home.

Added Bonuses
Tell us about a gym that also features an in-house food service for its members. You probably can’t think of many. As a member at Core, you’ll have access to PUMP Café – an innovative meal service, serving vegan & paleo dishes, designed for fitness. This added bonus of healthy, clean meals will help you reach your fitness goals. It also doesn’t hurt that these meals taste great!

Want to get a little shopping down? You can do it here! We are a certified distributer of Lululemon Athletica clothing and we feature products you won’t be able to find in your local store.
