A Chat with Bogue Falaya Fitness
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Bogue Falaya Fitness is more than just a gym. We are a community. With five licensed trainers and [certified instructors], our approach to fitness is a lifestyle. Our amenities include 24/7 access, a complimentary coffee bar, locker and steam rooms, towel service, a cardio-fitness room, a weight room, and studio rooms.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Motivation comes from within; however, it is driven by others who have experience in fitness. Our staff is very approachable and believes in [helping] others stay with their program, enjoy the community, and learn to live [a healthy lifestyle]. It takes discipline to change a habit. We are there to encourage you.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Covington is a special town to live in. Everything and everyone who resides, works, or visits historic Covington can walk safely everywhere. At the time we opened, there was only one piece missing: a health facility. Now, we have one that is focused on [promoting] a better lifestyle for its community.
What do you love most about your job?
The staff at BFF is constantly reminded of how it takes a village to stay happy and healthy. When you are healthy, surrounded by people who want what’s best for you and your family, your life becomes enjoyable and [you feel] fulfilled. Our staff sees the transformations daily. Healthy lifestyles are contagious.
