During the time leading up to the opening, we knew Greater Mankato was missing something. Too many cookie-cutter programs, not taking into considerations each unique background/injury history. We wanted to take a more personalized approach to fitness. Providing personal training in a group environment while having general coaching options available. Ignition Fitness & Sports opened its first facility in January 2014 and recently upgraded to a state of the art in late 2016.
START WHERE YOU ARE – Wherever you begin on your fitness journey, you start with a different history, different capabilities, and different limitations from others. The most important thing is that you start from wherever you are and move forward.
DO WHAT YOU CAN – We don’t push members to do more or go further. In fact, we instead stop people when we notice a drop in their performance.
“Move where you can, so you can move where you can’t” is our guiding principle. We believe, and have demonstrated with hundreds of members, that if you just do what you can and move where you can, your sphere of capabilities will be ever increasing.
You don’t need to be able to keep up with someone twenty years younger who has different fitness goals than yours — you only need to do what you need to do to progress.
