Sportfit is best for me. Great variety - exercise, tennis group classes and super staff Charley

I concur...luv the pool, the sauna, the classes! Sport Fit is fantastic!

I have belonged to some pretty fancy (read pricey) gyms in my time and none of them can touch Sport Fit. A wide variety of classes (love spin!), indoor and outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor tennis, friendly and helpful instructors and staff - plus, a daycare! Parents night out once a month, plus swimming and karate instruction for the kids. My family moved to Bowie without knowing anyone here and I am actually starting to see people around town that I recognize or know from the gym. After several years of living here and not knowing a soul I feel like I'm finally starting to meet my neighbors.

You can find treadmills anywhere, but if you are looking for some ONE on ONE personal training with a Trainer who will be concentrating on YOU, then Fitness Matters Gym is the place to be. Gary Siegel and his staff are top notch and able to handle EVERY fitness level. You will not be disappointed!

FITNESS MATTERS, provides personal attention with Certified Personal Trainers designing a fitness program "Just For You" Each trainer is committed to helping you reach your fitness goal. A personalized gym where your fitness matters.

I like the one on one experience of Fitness Matters...it's like I have the entire gym to myself with the trainer (because I do!). I shopped around for personal trainers and no one offered as much personal service for the money as Fitness Matters. Gary is a great trainer and I highly recommend him and his private training concept.

vickie at Fitness Matters is a fantastic trainer. She is a motivator, something you can't get at the big, overcrowded gyms.

As a ZUMBA instructor to both South Bowie Community Center and Sport Fit both facilities are amazing with wonderful staff and particpants. You can't go wrong with either one. Hope to see you in one of my ZUMBA classes!

South Bowie Community Center has the best ZUMBA classes at the best price. Debi is a phenomenal instructor and there is no better place to have fun while you melt away the pounds. If you need motivation...bling it on!

dear Brad, thanks for the opportunity to be considered for the Best Gym in Bowie. I am the owner of Fitness Matters Gym. The contest was fun but last night around 9pm i feel the there was a ballot stuffing attempt as one of the gyms went from 19 votes up to 64....the spirit of the contest was broken at that point , but i still hope you take in to account that we competed fairly, and enjoyed it until that point........
Brad Gerick March 09, 2012 at 01:28 PM
Hi, Gary, glad to feature all the local businesses and give residents a chance to support them. The winner of the contest will be determined by votes, comments and reviews, so the poll is just one component. We will post the winner at noon, best of luck!

The Zumba classes at SBCC are the best. Debi Bevins is an amazing instructor. The classes are extremely addictive and such a blast. Most importantly, you see results fairly quickly. I can't imagine going anywhere else.
