Hampstead Health & Fitness Takes 360-Degree Approach to Wellness for Adults and Children

By Kelly Church

At Hampstead Health & Fitness, the Hampstead, NH community can find their health and wellness needs fulfilled through a fully equipped gym, certified personal trainers, nutrition and health coaching, and even a special area for kids to develop their own healthy lifestyles. Owner and General Manager Ted Curtin opened the gym because helping people obtain healthy lifestyles was his life's passion, and he wanted a place that put families first.

The gym offers a large number of group fitness classes for members who have all kinds of goals. They offer traditional classes including barre, Pilates, cardio kickboxing and more. They also offer more unique gym classes like Caribbean dance classes, tabata and high-energy interval training.

Small group training is also available at the gym, with professional trainers that create fitness plans unique to each person's needs. With six to 12 people in a small group training session, trainees get the benefits of personal training without the price tag.

"We offer so many options in our classes and small group training sessions that whatever your fitness level may be, there is something here for every member of your family," Curtin said.

In fact, the gym claims to have everything for members "ages three months [to] 94 years," which is the age of the gym's oldest member. The kid's gym is a unique, fully supervised interactive fitness facility for youth. The kid's gym combines fitness with technology, utilizing XBOX 360 Kinects and Nintendo Wii to encourage active lifestyles in a way that kids think is fun. Kids also start learning how to use free weights, adopt healthy attitudes about fitness and more.

The gym also offers health and nutritional counseling for those who need it, because without healthy eating habits, no exercise program will be sufficient. Their six-week Easy-Fit Nutrition Program includes a one-on-one evaluation with a personal trainer, a meal plan and additional changes to it if necessary, two follow-up sessions, and progress tracking.

"The old saying, 'You are what you eat,' could not be a truer statement," Curtin said. "The body is continually regenerating itself on a cellular level from muscle, organs, [your] immune system, hair bone, your entire body. What you eat will also define what happens in your body by either having your cells store body fat or by reducing body fat levels and increasing muscle."

The Easy-Fit Nutrition Program costs $95. Small Group Training classes are $5 for members and $12 for nonmembers. For the kid's gym, rates are $7 per child per day, or $5 per child per day for two or more kids. Additional discounts are available for families, or for those who want to commit to six or more months. For more information about Hampstead Health & Fitness pricing, visit hampsteadhealth.com.
