The Juarantee

If you know someone who is considering joining Black Dog Fitness just just won’t take the first step, lets give them a shove.  I am offering the January Guarantee – the Juarantee. https://blackdogfitness.com/january-guarantee/ .   If they come try any of our programs for one month and can honestly tell me that they don’t feel any better, I will refund 100% of their money. They can even buy a Gift Certificate https://blackdogfitness.com/gift-certificate/ for an unlimited membership for just $100.   If they give it a good college try and don’t feel any better, I will give them every penny back.  I Juarantee it.


Finally, the numbers are in.  In 2023 we had over 4,000 attendances at Black Dog Fitness!  We even had 7 members who came to the gym more than 100 times.  I think this is a testament to the incredible loyalty of our members as well as the fact that…

This.  Stuff.   WORKS.


See you at the gym!
