BeFIT FITNESS CENTERS IN MAZATLÁN: Zumba, CrossFit, TRX, Spinning, Yoga, and More!

BeFiT in Mazatlán

Look for the "BeFiT Fitness Center" Banner
     There are so many ways to stay physically fit in Mazatlán. When our usual Zumba class in the park with Penny Fuller (see blog post by clicking at: Zumba with Penny in the Morning )was finished for the season and we weren't ready to leave Mazatlán, I started searching for another way to work out. One day, as we were riding the bus from the Golden Zone toward Punta Cerritos RV Park, I saw this large "BeFiT Fitness Center" banner hanging above a building at the curve where Avenida Camarón Sábalo turns into the Marina area.

     When I googled BeFiT in Mazatlán, I found out there are three of these fitness centers in this city. I contacted them through their website to find out if they have Zumba classes and was excited to find that they do! The class times are different at each location, but the class at the location closest to us was at 8:00AM. I can understand working out at 8:00AM while it is relatively cool outside, but I'm just not a morning person. So I have to admit that we did not make it to their Zumba class or the Crossfit, TRX, Spinning, Yoga class or any other of their many fitness classes, though we plan to next season. With three locations and plenty of class options and times, we have no excuse!
Jon Working out on the Weight Machines
     We did work out in the fitness center one afternoon and were impressed with the selection of equipment. Jon and I both did twenty minutes on the cross-trainer machines and then a rotation on the weight machines. Afterward we completed twenty minutes of floor exercises to round out our workout. The air conditioning wasn't turned on so it was pretty warm in the gym, especially on the third floor where the weight machines were. Morning would have been a more comfortable time to exercise at the BeFiT Fitness Center in mid-May. I was glad we had brought out water bottles and sweat towels!
Plenty of Cross-Trainers, Treadmills, and Rowing Machines
     I enjoyed reading several health-related quotes etched into windows in the fitness center, encouraging members to focus on the importance of good health. This was the first time I had heard Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote of "The First Wealth is Health" and I learned it in Spanish at the BeFiT Fitness Center, as it was etched in a window above the cross-trainer I was exercising on. Trying to understand the other three motivational quotes written in Spanish on the windows kept my mind off of the monotony of pushing my arms and legs in the repetitive circles (I would rather be doing Zumba!). The slogans written in Spanish were complex enough that I had to take photos so I could translate their meanings later. I liked seeing the health-oriented words written in Spanish for the Mexican gym members, and encouraging the gringos who visit to learn the local language. After our workout, we found the locker rooms and showers to be clean and in good condition.

  12. There is no doubt that being fit is itself is a complex task for our life, but not for those who are always trying to work hard and hit the gym regularly. If you're in Mumbai and looking for the best gym in Mumbai then Thera wellness and lifestyle will be good for you.
