John and the trainers at Body by John are the best trainers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They know what they are talking about and really take their time on helping you progress through your training. John is very personable and makes me feel very comfortable being there. It’s a great atmosphere and he has state of the art equipment. I can not have enough positive things to say about this place. Best decision I made was starting there. If you haven’t yet, you’re need to. Period.

I visit Body By John multiple times a week for a variety of classes, personal training, and open gym use for my online workout labs! They are amazing! I have done the spin class with various instructors and it is high intensity and LOTS of fun! 45 minutes goes by quickly as your jamming to the music and burning calories! Not Your Momma's Step Class is tons of fun with themed weeks (Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson) and fast paced choreography to make it a fun cardio challenge! There are tons of circuit classes with TRX's, kettlebells, barbells, and bosu balls!
Personal training times are super flexible and tailored very well to you! They keep track of what weights you should be at and little personal goals you have to help you reach them! I am always challenged in class AND in personal training!
They have awesome merchandise and shakes on site for you to buy if you're interested!
Not only is this a great gym but John and Pam are amazing people and the longterm clientele and staff are so friendly and helpful! You will feel right at home while you start crushing your goals!

I went back to Body by John for a spin class tonight. I haven't been in well over a year, but Maddy was so welcoming and awesome. Class worked me hard, but no problems if you can't do it all. Do what you can and keep moving. Very supportive.

I love this place and love the trainers. It’s fun, it’s funny and when I arrive there is an ever challenging circuit ready and waiting for me because they know that I like to be challenged and leave having been pushed harder than I would push myself. As I always tell them, I can be lazy enough on my own. I’m here to for a great workout and they don’t disappoint!! Thanks BBJ!

I’ve been going to Body by John for 6 months now, relying on personal training multiple times a week and occasionally a group session. The gym is outstanding, as are all the trainers.

For background, I somehow managed to make it through 25 years of life without a single shred of knowledge regarding fitness. 6 months later I am more competent and fit than I could have imagined.

Some immediate indicators this a great gym:
- the equipment is world class: diverse, well-maintained, and comprised of standard stuff along with some really cool contraptions that make for a killer (and fun) workout.
- the space is beautiful and organized: this isn’t a little studio with the equipment stored in the corner. There’s plenty of room for multiple private sessions and a group session or two.
- Happy, helping trainers: The Body By John family and staff are welcoming and patient with everyone that walks in.
- Tailored, legitimate workout regimines: your first session is an assessment, outlining your goals, lifestyles, and expectations.

Some things that become evident over time:
- The trainers know their stuff. The suggestions they make regarding fitness and nutrition are spot on.
- Happy clients. I see multiple people on a weekly basis and they all look fitter than when I started 6 months ago. That’s a good sign, right?
- Fitness is a lifelong passion of the staff. This isn’t a big box gym where equipment and workouts remain static. There’s continually newer, cooler exercises to do. The staff is fun to be around and takes a legitimate interest in you, not just your $$$.
- Realistic expectations: getting in shape is a challenging and long process. The staff doesn’t promise unachieavable miracles and delivers realistic expectations given what you’re willing to put in. They get you back on track after breaks, slipups, and valleys.

I’ll say it again: this is an outstanding gym. There’s something for every price point. It’s actually hard to believe how affordable the unlimited studio plan is. You’d be hard pressed to find a better fitness facility in Maine.

Body by John (BBJ) is more than a gym, it’s a community. Everyone is very welcome and encouraging no matter your fitness level.  The classes are all small so you do not get lost in a crowd. The most welcoming and supportive gym come join our fit fam!!  Bonus- the new app has a built in rewards system and allows you to choose your spin bike when you register!

I have been attending body by John classes and 1:1 training for almost 3 years now. I have never seen results like I’ve achieved at BBJ! The trainers are motivating and so knowledgeable, and make you feel part of the family. I would 100% recommend!

Thank you so much Sara for all your years of support at BBJ.  You are a inspiration to all BBj members.
