Need a family-friendly place to work out, to escape daily stress and to meet new people? American Family Fitness in New Town is the place. 
Conveniently located on Main Street, this all-purpose gym is, as General Manager Mike Sabin says, "a place for everybody. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science, Mike has been committed to personal fitness for all age and activity levels since 1986 and plans to continue that work in Williamsburg with the existing and new exercise programs at AFF.
Something for every fitness level
Group classes include Active, Zumba, Power, Cycling, Fight and Blast and others all designed for great cardio workout as well as strength training.  All classes are led by well-trained certified instructors.
In addition to cardio and strength classes, AFF provides Mind and Body programs such as Vinyasa Yoga and Centergy designed to reduce stress and increase strength and flexibility.  Feeling anxious?  Tense? These classes may be the answer.

Children and Seniors Too

As a family friendly facility, the gym provides Kid Zone, an onsite childcare service where your children engage in age-appropriate activities while you work out. Classes such as Zumba Kids, Tae Kwon Do, and Kids Boot Camp introduce young children to the fun and benefit of regular exercise at an early age.

For seniors, there is the Senior Fitness program for low impact cardio, balance work, and resistance training that is easy on the joints.  AFF is also a participant with Silver Sneakers and the activities it supports.

If you prefer to work individually, nine personal trainers are available by appointment to address your specific goals. Or you may choose to work out in the well-equipped open gym with the tools you need to reach those goals. 


Interested in learning more about your personal nutrition goals?

Make an appointment with Diahnn Thompkins, a registered dietician. Need a refresher after a workout?  There's a sauna.  Hungry? Grab a protein bar or shake at the café.

As one of the outlets for healthy living in New Town, American Family Fitness is truly a "place for everybody."
