Fort and FortyCycle win Best of NH 2017 Community Fitness Center

Best of NH 2017 Community Fitness Center

New Hampshire Magazine recently conducted their annual Best of NH survey to determine the best of the best across the granite state. Over 15,500 people cast a ballot this year, and we are excited to share that we were selected as the Best of NH 2017 Community Fitness Center!

As if they award was not enough, check out this amazing write-up:

Community Fitness Center: Fortitude and the related FortCycle (located all in one building) in Manchester are the “Cheers” of gyms — just trade the barstools for bikes. The Fort is a welcoming place where the staff and owners know your name and greet you with a smile. For those who’ve experienced snobbery or intimidation at other fitness centers, the coaches and trainers at The Fort are encouraging, upbeat and tough — in a good way. Whether you want to sweat it out to the beat of pumping music at FortCycle or get whipped into shape via bootcamp, there’s a class you’ll love. They also offer barre, personal training, kickboxing, TRX and much more. When you’re on your way out, grab a tasty (but always healthy) smoothie.
