Welcoming a new WSB sponsor: Snap Fitness

Today we’re welcoming one of our newest sponsors: Snap Fitness, which recently opened in Jefferson Square. Owners Jim Flynn and MJ Benavente (left) – who live in Gatewood – say there’s lots of gyms out there you could join, but they think Snap is the best because of their philosophy that exercise should complement your health. MJ says her background in medicine taught her one thing – fitness is preventive medicine. She says a regular exercise routine is a proactive way to keep yourself in good health. That’s why she and Jim say that Snap Fitness has a numbers of ways to help you stay fit no matter how busy you are. Snap is a no-contract club, offering 24/7 access to the equipment. Snap also believes in reaching out to its members before they get to the gym. Free fitness assessments with a personal trainer are part of your membership package, along with online tips about keeping up good nutrition habits to go along with your workout. Also, Jim says you can get up to speed fast: Snap has trainers who can show you easy routines that you can do on day one. They also offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, and your West Seattle Snap membership lets you use any Snap Fitness center in the US. (Here’s where to look up its other locations.) Not only do Jim and MJ live in West Seattle, they also are members of the West Seattle Junction Association, they’ve volunteered for Community Harvest of Southwest Seattle, and they belong to the Seattle Audubon Society. Snap Fitness is in lower Jefferson Square (map), online at snapfitness.com/seattlewest, or you can call 206-299-1597. Thanks to Snap Fitness for joining the WSB sponsor team; see the full lineup here, same place to find information on becoming part of it.

    As I was saying in a Forum post about them earlier, I really love Snap Fitness and highly recommend them. I’ve been a member since they opened 3+ months ago. It’s nice to go to a place with new equipment that works, reasonable prices, no contract, and management/staff that is not only pleasant and knowledgeable, but very receptive to feedback from customers. I love that it’s open 24/7 so I don’t have any excuses for why I can’t go. I’ve never had to wait for the equipment I want either. All in all, a great experience. I definitely recommend them.

    Where is the available parking? Are there TVs to watch while you work out? A selection of magazines? I am a high maintenance exerciser. :)

    What are your monthly dues? I have been thinking of checking them out, as I have heard good things. Welcome snap fitness to the west seattle neighborhood!

    Cali, in addition to street parking the gym has some passes for parking at Jefferson Square (the level underneath the Safeway lot), or you can simply park at said Safeway lot. They do have TVs – 4 of them, I think – and remote available to change them. You can listen to them on particular radio stations or turn on closed captioning. And I believe they do have a lot of magazines around; I don’t read them, so I don’t know which ones. They have the pricing listed on their website at http://www.snapfitness.com/seattlewest/membership_pricing.cfm – different rates for single, joint and family.
