Thirty-year-old Amanda Harmon is finally fit.

“I began to struggle with weight in my early twenties,” Harmon told The Focus. “My weight ‘yo-yoed back and forth by as much as 30lbs. I was unable to maintain it.”

Through diet and consistent exercise, she was able to overcome her health challenges. Now, Harmon spends her days teaching others to do the same at Seymour’s newest gym, aptly entitled Finally Fit.

“I now know that helping people who face the same struggle is what I am supposed to do,” Harmon added.

Finally Fit, located in Phoenix Court, is a state-of-the-art gym that boasts dual hydraulic equipment and a comfortable atmosphere. Members can attend Beach Body Classes, such as Boot Camp or Turbo Kick class, or simply come in and work out on their own time. Zumba classes will be available beginning in February. While other gyms charge a hefty-fee for personalized instruction, Finally Fit offers the service at no-additional charge.

The fitness center is located just next to Seymour Weight & Wellness, a holistic medical practice that focuses on total body wellness. Finally Fit is also owned and operated by certified PA, Melissa Watson.

“It’s a natural extension of what we do at Seymour Weight & Wellness,” Watson said. “Among the weight loss strategies Seymour Weight and Wellness offers dietary support, including menus based on the recommendations of the American Diabetic Association, diet diaries and meal replacement bars, supplements, prescription appetite suppressants, and LipoVite, a weight-loss injection that includes a formulation of vitamins, proteins and lidocaine.”

Finally Fit isn’t just open to patients of Seymour Weight and Wellness. In fact, membership is open to all and is available for only $19.99 per month with a one year contract. The center is open Monday through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., and on Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. For more information, contact them by calling 865-573-0101.
