About Us – The Gym With A View
Longview Wa –Local owner Diana Hastings opened the doors at 1826 1st avenue to provide a one of a kind fitness center in the Longview, Kelso area. The building, once a former well-known restaurant, is adorned in a calming and luxurious wood entry way that would rival any high-end gym. Kitchen, tables, chairs and chef have been replaced with superior exercise machines, shake bar, infrared sauna and trainers. The remarkable ambiance and layout of the building has been preserved to provide a stellar experience for a not always pleasurable part of the day. The views from the treadmills and sauna provide a peaceful, natural backdrop that allows clients to forget where they are.
Diana, her manager Trevor Skala, the personal trainers and the staff all strive to provide a location where everyone feels comfortable working out at their own level. Their gym is separated into multiple sections to allow for moderate privacy and comfort. On top of the equipment being advanced and the trainers coming highly recommended, the staff cares. The motto here is “The gym where everyone knows your name,” a tagline that is not just an attention getter but a company value. Like most of today’s society Cowlitz County is an area where a great deal of its residents have succumb to unhealthy lifestyles. The owner of 1826 Elite Fitness wants to do her part to help make this a healthier community and have gone down in saying “you just get yourself to the door; we will help you with the rest.”
Professional trainers and staff are available at all times to answer questions and give suggestions on how to use a machine for the first time or how to better intensify your workout, but the elite service does not stop there. The gym is also equipped with an infrared sauna, on-staff masseuses, two tanning beds and a shake bar to refuel. The surrounding site around the exterior of the building also has outdoor activities, All in all 1826 Elite Fitness is the gym with beauty, brains, and brawn; a full package to meet a variety of needs.
