About No Limit Fitness

The fact that No Limit Fitness has no ties with a large chain, allows staff to concentrate efforts on one location. No Limit Fitness will primarily exist to provide healthy activity options for all income classes without compromising on the quality of service.

Our Hip Hop Cycle class is unique to the Grand Rapids and Kentwood area and will be the flagship for No Limit Fitness. No other fitness facility or gym is offering this fun way of exercising.

Although his formal education and most recent work experience have not been in physical fitness, he has continued to learn about healthy lifestyles and wellness

William says that his life has gone by very quickly due to always working hard, moving around, and numerous family obligations. He felt that he was not taking care of himself as well as he knew he should have. Also, within the last several years, William dealt with the tragic passing of loved ones. With each death, the importance of being around for family and friends become more apparent, and with this in mind, he has rededicated his energy to living a healthier lifestyle.
