CAN DO Fitness: Creating an environment so you can keep your fitness resolutions

It’s that time of year again. Millions of people resolve to get fit, workout more and use their gym memberships.

“The problem is, people can’t keep their resolutions because they can’t remain motivated. We created an entirely different environment. CAN DO can keep people motivated. We help people get the results they want,” said Stuart Polevoy, who co-owns CAN DO — Princeton and Koi SpaSalon with wife, Gina.

Located at Forrestal Village, CAN DO – Princeton has become the area’s best place to go for fitness and wellness. Busy since opening in July, 2007, the club is particularly popular now. Polevoy says new members stay members. And get the results they are looking for.

“Our approach is different because we make it enjoyable. We know when people enjoying being members, they stay motivated. We’ve eliminated the drudgery of going to the gym,” says Polevoy.

The “drudgery” never existed at CAN DO – Princeton.

In fact, it’s more resort than gym.

Complete with top-shelf amenities and a quality staff focusing on customer service, CAN DO – Princeton delights people by offering an amazing menu of fitness services and unmatched service.

“It’s an inexpensive way to go to a ‘resort’ every day,” said Polevoy. “Yes, we have top grade equipment, programming and services. But we also have a relaxing atmosphere for socializing. Our members augment their daily exercise routine with a sauna followed by a healthy cafe lunch and relax in our Wi-Fi equipped atrium while their dry cleaning is being handled. Services and service are the CAN DO difference.”

Workout enthusiasts and New Years resolvers alike notice the difference immediately.

The facility was created to focus on members’ fitness goals. The atmosphere, equipment, classes, and staff all were chosen for their quality. In addition to the latest fitness equipment, there are three pools, one for lap work, one for therapy, and one for spa treatments.

Plus, CAN DO offers more than a hundred group fitness classes including Pilates, yoga, aquatics, martial arts, and more.

“These are not knock-off programs. Members get expert training from accomplished people,” Polevoy says. “For example, our classically trained Pilates instructors have more than 600 hours training before earning certification. We offer Spinning®, not cycling. And our wide array of classes include Les Mills Body Pump®, Body Combat® and Body Attac ®. We are a licensed Parisi Speed School franchisee and offer private and group sports-specific training to athletes of all ages. Add to this our private and group swim lessons, for children and adults, and you can see we work to please our members and keep them motivated. That means they achieve their fitness and wellness goals.”

CAN DO staff members are carefully selected not only for skill, but also for a customer-focused attitude. “We want people to truly enjoy being here,” says Polevoy. “To deliver on that promise, I have to have a great and professional staff.” The staff even knows how to focus on people with special needs, such as those working out while treating heart conditions, osteoporosis, diabetes, orthopedic issues and more. CAN DO’s medical advisory board oversees trainer education.

“No other club puts it all together the way we do,” explained Polevoy. “Our goal is to help clients achieve a better quality of life.”

The diverse CAN DO experience makes this fitness club a great place to relax before or after the workout. In addition to the lounge and Cafe, there’s a full retail shop stocked with designer sports active wear. The locker areas are beautifully appointed and offer body-spray showers as well as steam and sauna rooms. Upon request, for a nominal extra charge, CAN DO will even clean your gym clothes and place them back in your locker.

There’s also a reward with the motivation. The adjacent Koi SpaSalon pampers members and non-members alike. This experience also is top-notch; the services rival the finest spas and salons in the world.

“Our members love us because we provide both external and internal means for achieving wellness,” he said. “It’s why we enjoy one of the highest member retention rates among health centers across the nation.”

The CAN DO motto is “Prepare for Each Day.” Members may do so from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. More information is available at
