Great all around gym, very clean, great equipment, and great staff! I do strength training and I can do all my workouts here, but they have all your cardio needs as well. Very affordable gym with great hours!

I’m taking the Silver Sneakers classes and Tai Chi. Working on balance, cardio, and coordination. Not ready for anything more strenuous but I’m having fun and staying motivated. The only drawback i...s that the classes are really full. This is the only gym that offers these classes. See More

My daughter was looking for a gym closer to her work so I suggested she try here. She went in last night and the lady at the desk was so rude! My daughter asked if there was a guest pass and was told ..."No, we're not free". Wouldn't even leave the desk to show her around the gym. Very disappointing. She was eventually told she could try the gym out for a fee and my daughter paid and tried the gym. No explanation of equipment, with some being different that her current gym. No showing her around. It's fine, she's can find her way but I feel a little more customer service skill and trying to relate to your guests is needed! See More

I've been going to Health and Strength for almost six month's. I love the Silver Sneakers classes. I attend the classes four times a week. My instructor Carol is just wonderful. The owner's and staff... are extremely friendly. I recommend this gym to any one who is considering to join a gym. See More

I have been training with Carol for about ten months. I was over weight and had high blood pressure. Carol suggested a diet the I should go on to help me. It took me a few weeks to really commit to th...e diet. When I started with Carol my blood pressure was 146/96. That was with medication. I have made a commit to do my part with the diet and exercise. I went to the doctor on Friday for my check up. He took me off my blood pressure and cholesterol medication. I did it in ten months. I thank Jesus for guiding me to the gym. I thank Carol for encouraging me in my diet and exercise. If you listen and commit you can accomplish anything. If you want a good gym where people care about you well being and care about you, go to HEALTH AND STRENGTH GYM. See More

Great family owned gym. They greeted me so genuinely and offered me a very fair rate for my 6 weeks stay. I interviewed two other gyms and was super disappointed. The locations were about 10 minutes f...rom me, but I would rather drive an extra 10 to get to Health and Strength. Very large selection of equipment. I really appreciate the room where classes are held. I use it for my free weights in between cardio sessions when there are no classes. Feels like my home gym!! See More

I am repeating myself, but it has to be said once again: we are so fortunate to have Yami Coto and Robin Crutcher Phillips, both are the best LesMills BodyPump instructors in the whole wide world, ful...l of commitment and energy. Their goal is to improve our (!) well being. Thank you, love our gym ! See More

Great equipment, all the machines r set up in there respective areas so u dont go from one end of the gym to the other to work chest, back, or legs. This is the reason ive been there for a couple year...s. Bodybuilder or someone just looking to lose weight w cardio, this is the gym that u can train at no matter ur level of experience. See More

Great gym! I'm in North Fort Myers for 6 weeks and have been going to this gym every other day. Mike and Carol are very pleasant and helpful. Other staff members have also been very nice. PLENTY o...f workout equipment and the gym is not usually too busy. Even at its busiest, I get through my workouts without having to wait too often for equipment to free up. The gym and locker room are very clean. I highly recommend this gym. See More

Absolutely love this gym! Loved the variety of the equipment and the different rooms. The owner, Mike, is so welcoming and accommodating and it is very clear that this is his passion. Couldn't have pi...cked a better gym in this area, I highly recommend this for anyone from a competitor to someone just starting out! See More

Love the place. GREAT EQUIPMENT. IMMACULATE! A true lifter laid this gym out. There are so many options for each muscle group you can switch it up constantly. Could use to drop the spinning room ...for child care. It would bring a greater mix of people. Perfect for me and not over crouded, you can get on machines easily. Been here for MANY years and am not switching. See More

I was in Cape Coral on vacations. Had googled the gyms in the area and this one stood out. I decided to give it a try and BOY...I'll never regret my choice!

• The owners make you feel right at home...
• The gym has so much equipment, you could spend 6 hours in it and not use every machine
• The gym is SPOTLESS.
• It has this old school, "I'm here to train" vibe
• The people are extremely friendly and respectful. You never have to worry about having to remove someone else's weights from your station.

All in all, an AWESOME experience!

While I was visiting my parents the end of April, I took a couple of Body Pump classes. I was thrilled to find a gym close by that offered them (I'm kind of addicted, lol). Yami was the instructor eac...h time. She was awesome! The gym and the bathroom/locker room were super clean. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back during my next visit!

OK, THIS is a SPECIAL Week! Our class schedule is attached.

Great News... Dinah is coming back out of Zumba retirement to lead Zumba on Monday and Tuesday -- 6:30pm both nights. Don't miss these two special Zumba classes!

And, with Carol Wydra taking some much-deserved vacation during Spring Break week, Bernie will demonstrate the whole series of Senior Classes developed by Silver & Fit.


The 3 Silver & Fit classes are: Explore (easiest level), Experience (moderate level), and Excel (highest level). See the schedule for when each of these are being offered. Bernie led the Experience class last Tuesday at 8:00AM. Feedback was very positive, so we decided to have Bernie demo all 3 levels this week.

Lastly, Kate is back, so Friday night Line Dancing at 6:00pm is back on our schedule again this week.

Please do come out to dance with Dinah Monday and/or Tuesday evening, or try several of the Silver & Fit Classes out, or join Kate for Line Dancing.

We love to get your feedback, and do plan to add a Butts & Guts class next week on Thursday evening (3/29) at 6:30pm.
