“Black Mountain Fitness is a gem. When I moved to North Scottsdale, I was very much afraid I would be forced to join one of the megachains, but luck led me to Black Mountain. The atmosphere is local and friendly and takes the dread out of going to the gym.” - Jon Vance
Black Mountain as a whole, meaning the people and the gym itself, have helped in keeping me motivated for my fitness goals and have only heightened my excitement for future accomplishments…which has kept me coming back! - Kacey Grove
I joined Black Mountain Fitness in August of 2006 because of the friendly staff, knowledgeable personal trainers and the variety of group fitness classes offered. Black Mountain Fitness gives you the feeling of being in your own personal gym. It’s never too busy and you usually see the same members and their smiling faces. If you are looking for a clean gym with cutting edge fitness equipment then I highly recommend Black Mountain Fitness. - Lindsay Clancy
“I love this gym and as a serial gym joiner……I’ve tried them all and never stayed beyond a year! But I finally found my home and I’ve been with Janie at Black Mountain Fitness for well over 4 years. The gym is very well equipped with free weights and machines along with cardio equipment, Yoga/Pilates studios, excellent instructors and an excellent location in the heart of Cave Creek across from Black Mountain. However, what draws me to Black Mountain Fitness the most are the wonderful folks that work-out there religiously. That’s because Janie draws us all there as a family – young or older, extraordinarily fit or just trying to get there. The atmosphere is accepting and reassuring and you know that upon arrival… every time…you’ll be met by Janie’s great smile and the wonderful attitude she has been able to instill in us all. Janie has also been my trainer over the past three years and goes above and beyond by getting me out of the gym a couple times a week to run the track and at least once a week to hike the gym’s namesake….Black Mountain in Cave Creek!” - Sandy M.
Black Mountain Fitness is not just a fitness center, it is a community. As more and more local businesses confront an impersonal, one-size-fits-all world, Janie French succeeds by doing what others only talk about: providing personal, one-on-one service in an atmosphere that is as far from the big boxes as one can get. Janie knows her clients. Janie cares about her clients. Janie supports her clients. I have worked out at BMF since we moved to the area in 1997, and I have trained personally with Janie for the past several years, with excellent results. I wouldn’t even think of going anywhere else.
