Our Core Belief

Health and fitness are vital for human flourishing. In order for people to realize their highest mental, emotional, spiritual, and social potential, their physical needs must be met first. The human soul suffers when the vessel in which it is housed is not maintained. Thus, the negative consequences of failure, for whatever reason, to develop the health and fitness of the human body are felt and seen in areas beyond just the physical, outward appearance and the affects extend beyond the individual into their friends, family, and society as a whole. Likewise, the positive impacts of actively pursuing individual health and fitness spread to those in our immediate social circle and beyond. Taking care of the body we have been given is the appropriate response to our gift of life and the proper stewardship of the vehicle through which we impact the world. To do so is good, it is valuable, and it is necessary…but it is not always easy. The mission of NBS Fitness is to provide people with the facility, the community, and guidance necessary to help people achieve their full physical potential and, in doing so, help them to flourish in other areas of their lives so that they may be impactful to those around them.
