A small studio in Marion has a large heart for fitness and overall well-being. F.I.T.2help began in 2010 by owner/founder, Pam Hall, who carries 30 years of experience in the fitness industry. In 2016, Pam, with the help of her “Superman” husband, Mark, opened the doors of F.I.T.2help in south Marion at 4001 S. Western Avenue.
Hall opened F.I.T.2help to carry forth her value of encouraging others to live a healthy lifestyle both physically and emotionally. Her hope is to lift up her clients throughout their journey. “I have been blessed to witness many build strength, stamina, and self-confidence,” Hall said.
F.I.T.2help’s slogan is, “Fitness Made Personal,” and its goal is to do just that. “Each person or group matters and has personal needs, goals, and/or challenges, and it is important to start there. Our goal is to listen, lead, and encourage…and to have fun getting healthier,” Hall explained.
F.I.T.2help offers personal training, studio memberships with limited hours, F.I.T.2help’s 5 W’s, assessments, CPR certifications, extra fitness challenges (for members or businesses), and more.
Members also have a chance to take part in special activities such as a summer beach party, Christmas sock day, Holiday LIFTT and Craft evening, and even a pet club, “Milo’s Muttley Crew.”
Hall expressed humble gratitude for the help she herself has received, reflecting on her own journey. “I thank God for keeping the doors open at times when I may have quit. I am thankful for the encouragement and help from family and friends throughout the years.”
Hall explained why she chose Marion as the central location of her business. “Marion is a special town. There are so many people that are caring and generous. I have witnessed this countless times. One special way is when we do “Blankets2Bless” (in partnership with the Grant County Rescue Mission) and see the full circle of giving from both those donating and those receiving.”
Personal training and other activities are scheduled by appointment outside membership hours. Days and evening times are available. Studio membership open hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am to 1pm. Find out more at fit2help.com, or on Facebook at FIT2help.
