On its website, Key 2 Fitness asks, “Tired of the overcrowded atmosphere and corporate ‘machine’ of the big box gyms?” With an uncommon approach to the typical gym experience, Key 2 Fitness offers an alternative.

Once inside, visitors can grab a complimentary towel and migrate through the rows of cardio equipment, free weights, and strength-training machines. During certain hours, experienced personal trainers are available for one-on-one workout sessions. On the gym’s loftlike upper level is a small classroom with wooden floors, where members can take advantage of TRX suspension-training gear and 1% less gravity.

David McVeigh grew up in Ireland where he competed in road races and worked as a sports therapist. While he enjoyed his work, David felt limited in his abilities to rehabilitate his athletes. He’d learned firsthand the positive effects of massage therapy at his job and decided to make the switch, enrolling in a two-year course to learn the ins and outs of massage and bodywork.
Today, the owner of McVeigh Massage and his team in their quaint two-room studio, offer Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and prenatal massages using heated pads and less-oily massage creams. Inside their serene and posh location, the team treats a variety of clients suffering from various body injuries such as chronic lower-back strain resulting from computer engineer work or inflamed muscles springing from strenuous exercises. They also provide terrycloth headbands and caps to keep hair from doing donuts in the slick creams.
