New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is reopening Samson Health & Fitness Center with a special ribbon cutting on Jan. 12 following the worship service, expected to end around noon.
“This investment represents our ongoing commitment to the community and serves as a critical community asset for all to enjoy. Our ribbon cutting serves as an important step forward in solidifying New Birth as a local leader in health and wellness efforts,” said Dr. Jamal Bryant, New Birth’s senior pastor.
The state-of-the-art fitness facility features 80,000 feet of workspaces featuring four full basketball courts, speed and agility areas, weight room, cardio area, group class space and snack bar.
During the month of January, Dr. Bryant is focusing his weekly sermons and online messages on topics of health and wellness.
“We are in a serious health crisis across America where far too often we find African Americansleading in those staggering health statistics mainly due to a lack of information and access quality healthcare. These health disparities are real and disproportionately affect our communities,” said Bryant. “New Birth is committed to not only brining awareness about these issues but also providing a path to help address some of these preventable and manageable health challenges.”
In addition to the extensive training and workout facility, Samson offers the entire community access to first-class personal training, group workout classes and more.
“We are so excited about the renovations and upgrades we have made to the facility,” said Melanie Render, who manages Samson Health & Fitness Center. “While the facility sits on the New Birth campus, it is not just for New Birth members. We invite the entire community to come out and experience all that our great facility and staff have to offer.”
There is no signup fee to become a member of Samson Health & Fitness Center. Individual monthly plans starting at just $15 for adults, $45 for a family membership and $10 for youth and seniors over 62 years old.
