I have been a member of Franklin Health and Fitness for 2 years now. and I have come a long way in my quest for better health and fitness issues. I love the Friendship that I have gotten from the Staff and other people that I have met there at the gym. From the girls at the Desk to the Massage Ladies.to the All the Trainers and everyone else on Staff. You guys do an Awesome Job! Special Thanks to My Trainer's Jon Lyon and Tracy Hutchinson They have been working with me for 2 Years now. I appreciate them for helping me overcome my fears and helping me to be able to do things like getting up off the floor to being able to do a 1 mile race down the Green way and breaking my time doing it! That's Walking it with hiking poles! to helping me how to keep my balance, to doing a 1 minute plank. It doesn't matter if you have a lot of Health Issues or are in Great Shape, Young or Old, Adult or a Kid. have a Weight Problem or Not. There's A Place for everyone! Try It You Just Might Like It!

Kenn and Susan have been members for several years. Susan joined in 2013 after water therapy for total hip replacement for severe arthritis, and her orthopedic surgeon recommended water aerobics to keep the operated hip in good shape, as well as to prevent surgery on the unoperated hip! Six years later and still going strong. Kenn has benefited from water aerobics following surgery on right arm (compartment syndrome/nerve transposition/release) as well as exercises in the gym on specific equipment recommended by Occupational Therapist at Nantahala Physical Therapy. He recognizes he will probably need to continue both therapies for life, and we are very pleased that we have a supportive facility in which to exercise. We also can't say enough good things about the benefit of certified massage therapy at Franklin Health and Fitness. Thanks. Kenn Champney and Susan Moreau

I love going to this center. It makes exercise fun! I go to TAi Chai, swimming exercise and fun dance and weightlifting combo class with stretching to end it all. I try to go to my 6 classes a week. I can also work out on other machines whenever I can find extra time. Hours are so flexible that it makes going to center easy. Staff at center are very friendly and helpful.

Solar Heated Water

Our pool water system uses solar heating to keep our water at a comfortable temperature year round. That same technology also heats our shower and sink water.

Smoothie Bar

At our smoothie bar, we use biodegradable cups made from corn resin. Unlike regular plastic cups, these will degrade over time and not clog our landfills.


To cut down on waste water our urinals use Zeroflush technology. This eliminates thousands of gallons of wastewater each year.

Excel Hand Dryers

The finest American-made hand dryers in the industry. These high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers are Green-Spec, Green Certified.
